Apart from Sasha and Duggu, two big production houses - UTV Motion Pictures and Fox Star Studios - will also lock horns at the BO this week. While it’s going to be a dhamakedaar weekend, the question is - who will rule at the ticket windows? Read on to know....
Siddharth Anand's big budget film Bang Bang starring Hrithik Roshan and Katrina Kaif in the lead will finally hit the theatres tomorrow. But it’s not a solo release. Vishal Bhardwaj's highly anticipated flick Haider starring Shahid Kapoor, Shraddha Kapoor, Tabu, Kay Kay Menon and Irrfan Khan is also releasing simultaneously. Since it’s a five day weekend (the longest one this year) both the films should ideally do good business. However, they both have their own advantages and disadvantages. While Bang Bang is a commercial film, Haider isn't a conventional Bollywood film. And though a Vishal Bhardwaj film always garners critical acclaim, it never witnesses an earth shattering opening at the ticket windows. And this could very well be the case with his latest offering, hai na peeps?
On the flip side, despite being not such a typical Hindi film, the Shahid-Shraddha starrer has managed to create great buzz. Also, the film's music has been appreciated widely. Not to forget, team Haider left no stone unturned in promoting their film. As for Bang Bang, the promotional strategy of the film wasn’t really aggressive and neither did the lead pair go all out to market their action thriller. In this case, Bhardwaj’s revenge-drama surely has an upper hand.
But the big question still remains – which film will race ahead in the numbers game? Well, wethinks the box office battle is well poised for now. Also, Bang Bang and Haider belong to two completely different genres so the makers of both the films don't have to worry about their target audience.
As for who will walk away with the bigger slice of pie? Let’s wait till tomorrow and we’ll have the answer to that question!
