OUATIMA vs Chennai Express: Akshay vs SRK: Who Will Win?
Hi, my name is Habib Ahmed and this is my first article. Trust me when I say this that all my articles will be popular in here.
Once Upon A Time In Mumbai Again (OUATIMA) starring Akshay Kumar and Chennai Express starring SRK might clash. These two films are equally hyped an I am waiting for both of these films. But the BIG QUESTION IS: Which film will open better?
Assuming both films have same amount of screens.
Milan Luthria(Ouatim2) Vs. Rohit Shetty (Chennai Express)
Both directors are immensely successful and popular. However, Milan Luthria has both commercially and critically successful films: OUTIM and The Dirty Picture. On the other hand, Rohit shetty only has commercillay successful films: Bol Bachaan, Golmall 3 & Singham. Most Rohit Shetty’s films were for masses, whereas most Milan Luthria’s films were for both classes and masses. Basically, OUTIM2 has a higher chance to have better content than Chennai Express.
Akshay Kumar Vs. SRK
Akshay Kumar is in his best phase ever. His Rowdy Rathore grossing film has higher collection than all SRK’s films. SRK’s highest grosser is JTHJ which collected 119 Crore, whereas Rowdy Rathore collected 135 Crore. Akshay kumar is also enjoying his recent crtically and commercially successful films. Both stars have strong fan following. So it can be ensured that both films will garner a good opening.
Ekta Kapoor(OUATIM2) Vs. UTV(Chennai Express)
Ekta Kapoor, the name says enough. She can be called the LADY AAMIR KHAN. Almost all her last couple of films were commercially successful. Even a bad film like KSKHH retained HIT status. She is known as the marketing genious. UTV, on the other hand, has mixed bags of films. UTV gave the biggest disaster JOKER and the biggest blockbuster ROWDY RATHORE. Well, it can be said that Ekta Kapoor is plus point for OUTIM2.
Sequel Vs. Not a Sequel
One other advantage OUTIM2 has is that it is a squeal, so it has a great recall value. By the way, OUTIM is one of the best films for AJAY DEVGAN. On the other hand, Chennai Express is not a squeal.
OUATIM2 is most likely to be for classes and masses. Chennai Express is mainly for masses.
Clearly then, if both films have same amount of screens then OUATIM2 is most likely to take better opening than Chennai Express.
OUATIM2 has everything it takes to take a better opening. Chennai Express can only take a better opening if Chennai Express has more screens.
Let’s wait and see! (My bet is on OUATIM2)
