When films with extremely high budgets come to the fore, there is bound to be a natural process of comparing both and during this, the language doesn’t matter. In fact, even the release dates also don’t come into the picture. This month, two big movies are going to take the litmus test and comparisons are happening.
We are talking about the south Indian movie ‘2.0’ featuring Style Samrat Rajnikanth and the charming star Akshay Kumar versus the Bollywood magnum opus ‘Thugs Of Hindostan’ featuring Mr Perfectionist Aamir Khan and living legend Amitabh Bachchan. As such the Hindi flick is arriving as a Diwali treat.
As for ‘2.0’ it is preparing to arrive on November 29th. Yet, many industry experts and trade pundits are drawing a comparison as to which among the two would perform better at the box office. The odds are against ‘2.0’ given its genre and the fact that it is coming from south. This is going to be an interesting competition.
