Come 12th October and it is going to be the clash of numero uno in the world of music and movies. We are talking about T-Series and Yash Raj Films who are the best in their business and would now be coming face to face as their films clash with each other at the box office.
While BHOOL BHULAIYAA is a T-Series film with Priyadarshan at the helm, LAAGA CHUNARI MEIN DAAG has Yash Raj Films roping in PARINEETA director Pradeep Sarkar.
As are the indications (which are hardly expected to change over the next 4 days), BHOOL BHULAIYAA is going to be a clear winner as far as the opening weekend goes.
Superhit music, presence of mighty Akshay Kumar, presence of Priyadarshan (who can even make a DHOL a blockbuster), a successful theme (the film has been made in numerous South Indian languages and has been a success every time) and a complete family film appeal are just a few reasons which might make BHOOL BHULAIYAA as the first choice of cine goers.
On the other hand LAAGA CHUNARI MEIN DAAGA has been pretty 'thanda' ever since its promotion began. Presence of actors like Rani Mukherjee and Abhishek Bachchan are a little too predictable when it comes to a Yash Raj Film, the music has not caught up at all in spite of being pleasant, the buzz is clearly missing, the film's theme sounds serious and the promos have been out and out boring.
All of this makes LAAGA CHUNARI MEIN DAAG a doubtful starter at the box office, as far as the opening weekend is concerned.
Clearly, in the clash of the titans, T-Series has an edge this time around.
