HIDE N SEEK, TOH BAAT PAKKI and CLICK
This Friday will witness an interesting clash as three films - TOH BAAT PAKKI, CLICK and HIDE AND SEEK- all vie for attention. Well, it's quite common for three films to release simultaneously, in fact even THANKS MAA listed for release this Friday so this makes it four. However one thing that is common to all the three aforementioned films is that they all star the relatively less popular and lesser known youth brigade of Bollywood, stars like Sharman Joshi and Vatsal Seth in TOH BAAT PAKKI, Shreyas Talpade and Sada in CLICK and Purab Kohli & Arjan Bajwa in HIDE AND SEEK.
Amongst the three films the Sharman Joshi, Vatsal Seth and Tabu starrer, TOH BAAT PAKKI, appears to be the front runner. Reason being its good sustained promotion and the fact that it stars Sharman Joshi, fresh from the massive success of 3 IDIOTS and also Tabu who appears to be in her elements in this light hearted comedy. The next release, CLICK, starring Chunky Pandey, Shreyas Taplade and Sada is a horror flick and is directed by Sangeeth Sivan and should find its own fans. In HIDE AND SEEK, Purab Kohli of ROCK ON!! and Arjan Bajwa of FASHION fame come together, but the film has not been promoted very well and it remains to be seen whether Purab will be able to recreate the ROCK ON!! magic with HIDE AND SEEK.
Saying all that, Karan Johar's Shahrukh Khan and Kajol starrer, MY NAME IS KHAN, which released last Friday too will prove to be quite a handful for the above releases.
Well, let's wait and watch how the youth brigade fight for might this Friday, in this cut throat world of competition in Bollywood, where the stars are judged by their last release.
