This weekend is going to be one of the best weekends of the year with the release of two films-HririthikRoshan’s ‘Bang Bang!’ and ShahidKapoor’s ‘Haider’ which are as different as ant and elephant in terms of theme,budget,cast and sensibilities.So,experts say that it is impossible to compare both.
Not only the tone and tenor of the two films are distinct but also that their way of approach while narrating the story are different.Incomparision to SidharthAnand’s massive entertainers like ‘Salam Namaste’ and ‘BachnaAeHaseno’,Vishal Bharatwaj is known for his literature and his admiration for Shakespear’s classics.
Bhardwajfeels in a similar manner that the two films are to be put under the same basket as they are releasing on the same day.
“‘Bang Bang!’ is said to be a Rs.180 crore film and ours is a Rs.24 crore film.”It is going to be a great weekend as it can accommodate two films and thatis the reason we thought of releasing with ‘Bang Bang!’,” he added.
Fast-paced ‘Bang Bang!’ was shot in Abu Dhabi and India, which has elements like car chase and shoot-outs, promises edge of the seat excitement, while ‘Haider’, set in the 1990s of Kashmir-it is a family revenge drama.
Lead actors of the two films-Hrithik’s and Shahid’s standing is also different in Bollywood.
It is impossible to compare the two films as the budget,screens everything is different. If Bhardwaj has introducedIrrfan 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’shot queen Katrina Kaif is the female lead in “Bang “Bang” and upcoming star ShraddhaKapoor will be seen with Shahid in ‘Haider’.
Both films are set for the release this Thursday will give the audience the best of their holiday
