Guess what, we have another war, on the lines of the epic battle between Ajay Devgn’s Son Of Sardaar and Shah Rukh Khan’s Jab Tak Hai Jaan, lined up for us this week. And this time, it would be a face off between Mr. Perfectionist’s Talaash and the Khiladi’s return to his franchise.
Aamir Khan, who has already raked in the moolah in a short span of time with his Midas touch through Talaash, is looking to provide a stiff competition to the Akshay-Asin starrer Khiladi 786 that is all set to release this Friday. The parameter of the fight remains the same: Number of screens! Talaash which has received mixed reviews, much due to its gibberish climax, was appreciated by all in terms of superlative performances by the stellar star cast. On the contrary, Khiladi 786 is a complete masala action comedy which is raising sky high on Bollywood’s Khiladi Kumar’s shoulders as he returns to the franchise almost after a decade.
Aamir’s production team is also eyeing for a beautiful second week run at the box office bolting out Khiladi 786 and ousting them from a multitude of single screen theaters. Talaash which is mainly a multiplex oriented film, is also hoping to score big on the mass level at the single screens at numerous mass centers, which by default will be the reason for ousting Khiladi 786 from the same. Akshay Kumar’s team had already pre-booked the screens, three months in advance but Aamir’s mastermind has other things to offer, it seems.
With such a major hoolaboo created out of it, what needs to be seen is whether Talaash remains successful in pitting out the Akki starrer or will it be the masala potboiler scoring high over Bollywood’s Perfectionist? Or will both the films work wonders just the way SOS and JTHJ did this Diwali? This answer surely, doesn’t lie within!
