While RACE has come close to superhit status and ONE TWO THREE too is finding it's share of audience, all eyes are now set on next Friday's twin releases of KRAZZY 4 and U ME AUR HUM.
Though both the films belong to distinct genres, it is turning out to be an intense battle of sorts since KRAZZY 4 as well as U ME AUR HUM has a lot riding on them.
Apart from the fact that each of the two has big names associated with it, is has also become a matter of prestige for both Rakesh Roshan and Ajay Devgan. Reason? None of the two budged from the release date and were willing to get on a clash path rather than change their release plans and hence the promotional campaign.
With comedies doing well, especially over last few months, with hardly any film belonging to this genre failing at the box office, KRAZZY 4 is expected to open decently. On the other hand U ME AUR HUM does seem to have an edge since it brings with a different air to it, courtesy some of the best promos designed for a film in recent times.
U ME AUR HUM looks like a handy mix of drama, love, romance, tears and light hearted moments which would make family audience, especially ladies, warm up to the film. Music too is certainly going to play a major part in the film taking a good opening since Vishal Bhardwaj's tunes have been performing consistently well at the charts ever since the music hit the stands.
On the other hand KRAZZY 4 does have an Ace in the form of Hrithik's performance on the title song, something that should keep his fans interested in the film, especially since the promotional music video arrives towards the end credit rolls.
However, with an overall classy treatment, which Ajay Devgan seems to have given to his directorial debut, it certainly is advantage U ME AUR HUM as of now!
