Bollywood is all set to face a big movie clash this week. We are talking about Bollywood Battle of Rustom & Mohenjo Daro . May be production houses didn’t learn anything from “Dilwale – Bajirao Mastani” and “Prem Ratan Dhan Payo – Ghayal 2”.
Rustom is leading at this point in time, because the costs are much lower and the trailer has managed to find appreciation – both with the audience and trade. As per report, Akshay Kumar’s Rustom will be released on more than 2500 screens across the country, whereas Mohenjo Daro has around 2000 screens
‘Rustom’, Akshay Kumar starring, is film based on real life incident based on the 1959 Nanavati case where naval officer Kavas Maneckshaw Nanavati was tried for the murder of his wife’s lover, Prem Ahuja. It’s a thriller murder mystery movie of Akshay with Ileana D’cruz and Esha Gupta. Tinu Suresh Desai is directing the film under production of Neeraj pandey. Music has been given by Ankit Tiwari.
On the other hand,Mohenjo Daro is also a much awaited epic adventure-romantic movie of the year, features Bollywood’s Greek God Hrithik Roshan and debutante Pooja Hegde. It is directed and produced by Ashutosh Gowariker in association with UTV Motion Pictures.
It is a Periodic Epic film set to 2600 BC. It’s a story of an orphan boy who is in love with a girl (Pooja Hegde) but her father has a past with this Boy, he has destroyed his life by killing his family. When will happen when that orphan boy come to know this fact, how he reacts, how he takes revenge and how his love life continues after knowing this – That’s the plot of ‘Mohenjo Daro’.
Both the movies are being expected to be blockbuster, but same day release factor will affect certainly. As things stand today, Rustom has already won half the battle with a solid trailer. Mohenjo Daro will now rely on music to increase the buzz and post-release, the content to click big time.
All these stats, point toward the victory of Rustom. Audience seems more eager to watch Akshay back in serious role over the ancient love story of Hrithik Roshan. Let see what will happen actually on box office after their release, but so far Rustom is leading.
