This Friday will see the release of two films, Mehul Kumar's KRANTIVEER: THE REVOLUTION and Pravesh Bhardwaj's MR.SINGH MRS. MEHTA. As can be gauged from their titles, both the films even though releasing simultaneously, belong to two opposite genres.
KRANTIVEER-THE REVOLUTION and MR SINGH MRS MEHTA
Mehul Kumar's KRANTIVEER: THE REVOLUTION is a hard hitting socio- political drama whereas Bhardwaj's MR.SINGH MRS.MEHTA is a family drama based on adult relationships. When we compare the two films we see that both are as different as chalk and cheese and this augers well for both as the public can make a choice as to what they wish to see.
However, Mehul Kumar's KRANTIVEER: THE REVOLUTION seems to be holding an edge both in terms of promotion and the fact that the original KRANTIVEER (of which KRANTIVEER: THE REVOULTION is a sequel) is very much fresh in the minds of the cinelovers who would naturally want to see what the maverick and award winning director Mehul Kumar has done in the sequel. But Pravesh Bhardwaj's MR. SINGH MRS.MEHTA too cannot be taken lightly because first of all Pravesh has assisted directors of the caliber of Govind Nilhani, Shyam Benegal and Gulzar and so one can expect him to come up with something extraordinary. According to the director the film is a tribute to the great directors he has assisted but it has his own individualistic approach and style.
Well, both the films appear quite interesting and appealing so let's wait and see what happens when these two films hit the theaters this Friday.
