ISHQIYA and RANN
Two stalwarts of the Hindi film industry, Vishal Bhardwaj and Ram Gopal Varma, clash for honours at the box-office. Both the filmmakers are known for churning out some unusual and unconventional films and their latest projects too are quite anticipated and awaited by filmgoers who desire to see something different from the usual 'masala' fare being dished out.
This Friday will witness the release of Ramgopal Varma's RANN and Vishal Bhardwaj's ISHQIYA. Though ISHQIYA is directed by Abhishek Chaubey, yet it bears the Vishal Bhardwaj stamp of class, as is evident from the promos. The music of the film has caught the fancy of music lovers and once again after "Dhan Te Nan", Vishal has succeeded in created a chartbuster via "Dil To Bachcha Hai".
On the other hand Ramu's RANN which is a satirical take on the media and its functioning too is quite a hyped product and has the in-form megastar, Amitabh Bachchan along with Ritesh Deshmukh. It will certainly be a pleasure to see the great Bachchan as the righteous media baron trying to fight against the corrupt system and Ritesh helping him in his battle (or rann in Hindi).
Well, as they say, may the best team win, but as for us we will pray for the success of both the films!
