Hindi Movies Releasing this Friday
3 Fridays have passed since the release of Shahrukh Khan starer Chennai Express but til now no one is able to stop the express. Not Even Big superstars like Akshay Kumar, Amitabh Bachchan and Ajay Devgn. There is no doubt that poor performance of other films on box office is actually benefiting Chennai Express, which already has become the highest grossing Bollywood Film of All time. So it will be interesting to see if there any movie has the guts to stop the pacing Express and end its glorious saga. However, Film pundits do not have high hope on this friday’s release. Reason is because many previously put bet on Big Budget movies starring the leading Indian actors. Everybody knows how badly Akshay Kumar, Imran Khan and Sonakshi Sinha starrer ‘Once upon a time in Mumbai’ performed on Box office. Though Ekta Kapoor put the blame on Akki but she must know that the sequel was not even half as good as the original. Prakash Jha’s ‘Satyagrah’ which stars Amitabh bachchan, Ajay Devgn, Arjun Rampal, Manoj Bajpai and Kareen Kapoor in lead roles also is not expected to earn much.
Prakash Jha is surely a talented director but audience are not interested in more political dramas. After all our country already have enough Political drama and people want to get over it. Hope, next time Prakash Jha will come up with a comedy or may be an action thriller.
John Abraham’s Madras cafe surely got good reviews from critics and also did good at box office but Bollywood is still under the shadow of Chennai Express.
This friday two films are set to release. Here are few details about them:
1. Zanjeer (aka Toofan):
Lately Bollywood remakes are doing well at box office. From Shahrukh Khan’s Don to Hrithik roshan’s Agneepath and light comedy Chashme Badoor, every remake has performed good at box office. Most of the remakes originally starred mega star Amitabh Bachchan. 40 years back Zanjeer was Amitabh’s first super hit film (as solo hero) and earned him the tag of Angry Young Man. So it will interesting to see if the film can do the same magic for Tollywood superstar Ram charan. The film will be released in tamil language as Toofan and in hindi as Zanjeer. Ram Charan plays the role of a no-non sense cop and Priyanka chopra plays the part of his love interest. In the Supporting role we have Sanjay dutt (who is playing late Pran’s role) as Ram charan character’s friend. The villain part is filled by Prakash raj who has lately found good success in this part from movies like Dabbangg 2, Singham and Wanted. As Sanju baba is in jail so many his fans might opt for this film on friday and watch their favorite star on Big screen.
2. Shudh Desi Romance:
The Second film set to release on this friday is Parineeti Chopra’s Shudh Desi Romance. Its been more than a year since Parineeti’s hit debut film Ishqzaade. Believe it or not but just with a single film on her name, Parineeti has earned a huge fan following. So it will not be a big surprise if the film comes out as a hit. Besides it is directed by ‘Band Baaja Baarat’ fame Maneesh Sharma and produced by Aditya Chopra’s Yashraj banner. The film also marks the debut of TV actor Sushant singh Rajput. He is a smart guy and have good female fan following. Shudh Desi Romance is said to be revolving around the controversial topic of ‘Live In Relationship’.
Interestingly both sisters (Priyanka Chopra and Parineeti Chopra) are having their film released on the same day. Whose movie are you going to watch?
