May 26! Mark that date, for around four movies are clashing on this date, two among these starring Hollywood biggies, along with a desi beauty, one starring a cricket God and one having a National award winning actor. It looks our entire weekend will be spent in the theatres during that period. There are two Hollywood blockbusters competing with each other on that day, while the two Bollywood movies that are releasing on the same day have to make sure they don't get crushed in the process. The Hollywood movies in question are Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales and Baywatch, the latter which also happens to be Priyanka Chopra's live-action debut in Hollywood. Among the Bollywood releases, there is the Sachin Tendulkar biopic, Sachin: A Billion Dreams, and Rajkummar Rao-Shruti Haasan's satirical romcom Behen Hogi Teri.
Let's talk about the Hollywood movies first, starting off with Baywatch. The comic reboot of the popular '90s TV series stars Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron in the lead, as lifeguards, while Alexandra Daddario and Kelly Rohrbach. Priyanka Chopra plays the main antagonist of a wily and cruel businesswoman. Competing with the R-rated comedy is the fifth installment of the very popular Pirates of the Carribean franchise, Dead Men Tell No Tales. Johnny Depp returns to play the drunken, irascible pirate, while Orlando Bloom and Geoffrey Rush also take on their old roles. Javier Bardem plays the antagonist here.
Coming to our shores, Sachin: A Billion Dreams will be a movie most likely to be lapped up by millions of Master Blaster's ardent fans in our country. Directed by James Erskine, Sachin: A Billion Dreams is touted to be a documentary of Tendulkar's life, though the makers have insisted that's not the case. In very tough company is Behen Hogi Teri, a romcom starring Rajkummar Rao and Shruti Haasan. The movie has already impressed us with the funny, 'religious' take on the song Kaala Chashma. But it has to do better than that to get noticed among the big releases.
