Evolution and acceptance of change have always been a key to success. One who accepts change gets evolved on the fertile grounds of success. Indian Film Industry is one such epitome of the process.
Bollywood has massively evolved from decades which is purely indicated by the upliftment in its popularity and the success rate. From the first silent movie ‘Raja Harishchandra’ in 1913 to the first sound movie ‘Alam Ara’ in 1931 and now hundreds of movies each year.
Similar advancement and variety are noticed in the genres of films produced presently. From melodrama to drama, action to comedy, crime thrillers to romance, Bollywood’s experiment in serving the audience their need of an hour is something exceptionally appreciable. As a result of which, cinema along with its viewers are getting to witness some of the most reality-based stories.
In the past few years, such movies have quietly created a soft corner in the hearts of spectators. Movies like Bandit Queen, Gangs of Wassepur, Kesari, Super 30, etc. have left the spectators astonishingly wooed.
Conversing about such movies reminds us of the names of two exceptional actors who have proven their mastery in this genre.
In recent years, Akshay Kumar and John Abraham are often seen in certain movies carrying patriotic sentiments and are most innovatively glorifying nationalistic themes to an extent.
Akshay Kumar with movies like Holiday, Airlift, Kesari and Gold has served some of his most remarkable performances and on the same path, you’ll find John Abraham with his trail of films like Madras Cafe, Parmanu, Satyamev Jayate and then RAW.
But on the flip side, we have hundreds of movies with just 54 weekends in a year, giving birth to mega clashes. And one such clash is ready to hit the floors on 15 August this year.
John Abraham’s ‘Batla House’ is ready to encounter vigorous competition from Akshay Kumar’s ‘Mission Mangal’. The King of clashes Akshay Kumar is about to add another victorious bench-mark to the list. In contrary to that, John Abraham seems extremely confident about the clash after the super success of Parmanu, Satyamev Jayate, and decent success of Romeo Akbar Walter.
We witnessed something of the same kind last year on 15th August when Satyamev Jayate saw a major clash with Akshay Kumar’s ‘Gold’. Evidently, both the movies enjoyed their part of success sharing almost equal screens in theatres.
Mission Mangal’s ‘Mars Orbiter Mission’ is a must watch
Mission Mangal is a movie loosely based on the story of scientists at Indian Space Research Organisation who contributed to the Mars Orbiter Mission, which marked India’s first interplanetary expedition. The film stars an ensemble cast of Akshay Kumar, Vidya Balan, Taapsee Pannu, Nithya Menen, Kirti Kulhari, Sharman Joshi, H. G. Dattatreya, and Sonakshi Sinha.
The trailer of the film was released on 18 July 2019 by Fox Star Studios and received a mostly positive response. An immense amount of excitement and anticipation can be seen among the youth. The entire star cast of the movie is very positive about the project and are eagerly looking forward to the response of the audience.
Akshay Kumar, on the clash with John Abraham’s ‘Batla House’, quoted that we have enough screens and two movies releasing on the same day can equally share screen spaces.
Batla House promises a meticulous journey of the truth
Directed by Nikhil Advani and Starring John Abraham and Mrunal Thakur, the film is about the infamous 2008 Batla House encounter which was later alleged to be fake. Batla House has already created a lot of buzzes since its trailer had released and viewing John Abraham again getting into that zone will surely be a treat to watch for the audience.
Movie reviewers believe that one confined day a movie was to be made on the Operation Batla House that took place in 2008 and who better than John Abraham could have pulled it off. The movie is ready to take a clash with the Akshay Kumar starrer ‘Mission Mangal’ which has booked the same date of release i.e 15th August.
When asked about the clash, John Abraham responded “The audience gets to choose from good films. I don’t view it as competition.” Earlier, during the trailer launch of the film, he also said that “Make some noise for the desi boys! What else can I say?” when he was previously questioned about the same by a reporter.
Now, the questions of the trade experts are which movie will make big box office numbers or will get more screens? Irrespective of the star power that matters the most in Hindi Film Industry, both the movies have commanded over their own specific audience. These Independence Day releases are aiming to bring an immense amount of cinema lovers towards the theatres.
