New Delhi: One of the biggest weekends of the year, starting Oct 2, will see the release of two films – Hrithik Roshan’s “Bang Bang!” and Shahid Kapoor’s “Haider”, which are as different as chalk and cheese in terms of theme, budget, cast, and sensibilities. Hence, trade experts opine that it’s “unfair” to compare the two.
“It’s not a clash of the titans at all,” trade analyst Komal Nahta said. “It is unfair to compare them…”
Cinematically speaking, it’s true!
Not only the tone and tenor of the two films are diverse, their directors are poles apart in their sensibilities and approach while narrating a story.
Dismissing the comparisons, Rajesh Thadani said: “Hrithik is altogether in a different league, so let’s not compare them. Their budgets and costing are also different, so there is no space for comparison. Also, ‘Bang Bang!’ will have more screens compared to ‘Haider’, so let’s not compare,” he added.
If Bhardwaj has roped in Irrfan Khan and Tabu, to make the drama more intense, Anand relies on the likes of Danny Denzongpa and Javed Jaffrey to add entertaining elements.
Bollywood’s reigning queen Katrina Kaif is the female lead in “Bang “Bang” and rising star Shraddha Kapoor will be seen with Shahid in “Haider”.
Set for the Thursday release, films with diverse themes will give a healthy choice to the viewers to the make the best of their holiday.
