Excitement has begun!

If release schedule sticks to the plan, 2008 would witness its first major box office clash with RACE and JANNAT arriving together at the theaters. Both the films have currently locked 21st March as the release date. The date is special because it would be the first Friday of the year after majority of school/college exams being over across the country.

So far 2008 has been quite lukewarm with each of the films like HALLA BOL, MY NAME IS ANTHONY GONSALVES and BOMBAY TO BANGKOK being flops at the box office. Though HALLA BOL and MY NAME IS ANTHONY GONSALVES 'clashed' at the box office, it could hardly qualify as a clash with none managing to make much of a mark. Going forward too there won't be any clash at all since SUNDAY and RAMA RAMA KYA HAI DRAMAAA are the sole releases on 25th January and 2nd February respectively.

Later in February, MITHYA and SUPERSTAR arrive on the same day i.e. 8th February but both the films have their budget on the lower and medium side respectively. Other notable releases of the season are JODHAA AKBAR and BLACK & WHITE but yet again they are the sole releases on 15th February and 7th March respectively.

This leaves it to RACE and JANNAT to come together to create some fireworks at the box office before an unexciting first half of 2008 comes to a close. Both films come from reputed production houses and boast of big names. While RACE is a TIPS film with director duo of Abbas Mustan coming together to create thrills yet again, JANNAT comes from the house of Vishesh Films, the production house which would be looking at wiping the deficit bore from the twin failure of DHOKHA and SHOWBIZ in 2007. JANNAT is directed by debutant Kunal Deshmukh.

On the other hand RACE is a true blue multistarrer and stars Anil Kapoor, Saif Ali Khan, Akshaye Khanna, Bipasha Basu, Katrina Kaif and Sameera Reddy. In the film, Saif Ali Khan and Akshaye Khanna play step brothers.

Incidentally both RACE and JANNAT have music by Pritam. Let the 'race' begin!
