New Delhi, Feb. 21 (ANI): Seems like the coming Friday is ready to create a huge confusion among the movie bugs with its four releases, two from Bollywood and two from Hollywood.
On the one hand, there is extremely applauded Hansal Mehta’s ‘Aligarh,’ on the other, there is Abhishek Sharma’s ‘Tere Bin Laden: Dead Or Alive,’ a sequel to 2010 critically acclaimed ‘Tere Bin Laden.’ There is ‘Gods of Egypt’ and finally is the Oscar hopeful ‘The Revenant.’
Though a small budget movie, ‘Aligarh’ has gathered huge acclamation internationally by now with due to its excellent subject of homosexuality and national award winning actors like Manoj Bajpai and Rajkumar Rao.
The 2010 Bollywood satire ‘Tere Bin Laden,’ though did not have a huge starcast, managed to gain applause because of its quirk and execution and hence, its sequel ‘Tere Bin Laden: Dead Or Alive’ is also expected to do well.
However, if Box-Office collection is concerned, these movies are expected to face huge threats due to Gerard Butler-starrer ‘Gods of Egypt’s big budget of 140 million dollars. It is now reported that Viacom 18 has cut a deal with Lionsgate for the Indian marketing rights for the film, which releases in India on February 26 in English, Hindi, Tamil and Telugu, says a leading news daily.
To compete them, there will be Leonardo DiCaprio-starrer ‘The Reverant,’ which has already got itself into the Oscar list this year which speaks for it all.
February 26 will not only see a competition between Bollywood and Hollywood movies, but also will face tussle between Box-Office collection and ‘Critical Acclamation’.(ANI)
