If you are planning to watch a movie with your family or friends and two movies which are racing to each other now a days are making you confused then don’t be confused just check it by yourself and decide. We have got double treat on this holiday season with two very special releases – Hrithik Roshan-Katrina Kaif’s ‘Bang Bang’ and Shahid Kapoor-Shraddha Kapoor starrer ‘Haider’.
‘Bang Bang’ belongs to the genre of high-adrenaline action drama, whereas ‘Haider’ is more of an ‘arty’ type cinema. It doesn’t have flashy songs, dances perse. What ‘Haider’ showcases is Shakespeare’s tragedy novel – Hamlet – in an Indian version.
Let’s talk about each movie one by one:
Bang Bang tells the story of Rajveer Nanda (Hrithik) and Harleen Sahni (Katrina Kaif) who are forced to go on adventure that has every thrilling aspect, from jumping over rooftops, to racing the streets in a Formula One car etc.
Haider’, on the other hand, is as different from ‘Bang Bang’, as chalk and cheese. It completes Vishal Bharadwaj’s trilogy of Shakespearen tragedies. It revolves around a young man who struggles to come to terms with his father’s (Irrfan Khan) death. The film also examines his relationship with his mother (Tabu).
While Hrithik is expecting a bang bang records for his film, I think Haider is the Shahid Kapoor’s best performance to the date. As we know that Shahid and Hrithik both are awesome dancers in the industry but Shahid Skills are on display in ‘Bismil’ only while on the other hand Hrithik’s dance is on ‘Tu Meri’ and ofcourse the title track of ‘Bang Bang’ which is also a tribute to the legendary “Michael Jackson”.
This October, it’s going to be a box office war between Hrithik Roshan and Shahid Kapoor’s movies. Both movies are giving a tough completion to each other but Hrithik Roshan-Katrina Kaif film has managed a good hold amongst audience. The film has already crossed the 100 crore mark.
On the other hand Haider has maintained its hold in its niche release. The collection of the four days at the box office is 26.78 crores. Directed by Siddharth Anand, “Bang Bang” stars Hrithik Roshan and Katrina Kaif. In addition to star power, it has ingredients like love story, amazing stunts and peppy music. With Shahid Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor as the lead actors, “Haider” is set against the unrest in the Kashmir Valley and revolves around a man who wants to avenge his father’s death.
It has no doubt that “Bang Bang!” opened across the country at 90 percent occupancy and continued its run at the counters through the day, said a statement, But “Haider” is getting rave reviews by critics worldwide and audience word of mouth is excellent! “Haider” has performed extremely well in metros and specifically in Mumbai, Pune, Delhi/NCR, Bangalore, Hyderabad, said a statement.
