JAIL and JAB PREM KI GHAZAB KAHANI
This week will see another interesting clash, with Madhur Bhandarkar's JAIL taking on Rajkumar Santoshi's AJAB PREM KI GHAZAB KAHANI. Given the buzz, innovative and eye catching promos, popular soundtrack and most importantly, the amazing and dew fresh pairing of Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif, one feels that APKGK will win the battle hands down with a good opening. But Bhandarkar has the capacity to spring a surprise and so his Neil Nitin Mukesh and Mugdha Godse starrer, JAIL, may just bounce back, though as we have said before, it will be a tough battle this time around for Madhur.
Last Friday's opening battle between Vipul Shah's Salman, Ajay and Asin starrer LONDON DREAMS and Sujoy Ghosh's Amitabh, Ritesh and Jacqueline starrer ALADIN turned out to be quite one sided in favour of the former, both in India and Overseas. For that matter even LONDON DREAMS did not have a big start at the ticket window, but the audience just could not appreciate and connect with ALADIN.
