Bollywood Movies This Week: Akshay Kumar vs Prabhu Deva

Akshay Kumar and Prabhu DevaWith Race 2 and Vishwaroop doing well, two new Bollywood films are scheduled to release this week. Two good friends – Akshay Kumar and his Rowdy Rathore director Prabhu Deva are set to clash at the box office.

The first big release this week is Akshay’s Special 26. Director Neeraj Pandey, who earlier made his debut with a realistic anti-terror film ‘A Wednesday’, returns with a caper-heist adventure films based on a real-life incident where a bunch of conmen posing as CBI officers raided a jewellery store in Mumbai (then Bombay).

Special 26 Box office Prediction: The response to his last film ‘Khiladi 786’ was under-whelming as the film collected Rs 64 crores in India and managed ‘Average’ status. This time around, the expectations are high as Akshay fans are expecting a quality product, a film that grows on word-of-mouth like ‘OMG Oh My God’. The pre-release reports are extremely positive and the film should do well at the box office in the long run. Don’t open a ‘Rowdy Rathore’ like opening though.

The second Hindi release this weekend is Remo D’Souza’s ‘ABCD.. Anybody Can Dance’, touted as India’s first dance film. One of the best dancers in the country, Prabhu Deva, returns to acting after 17 years. He was last seen as an actor in a full-fledged role in Rajiv Menon’s ‘Sapne’ opposite Kajol in 1996. Well-known choreographers like Ganesh Acharya and several dancers are a part of the film. Popular choreographer and host of dance-reality shows, Remo D’Souza, makes his directorial debut. ABCD has glimpses of Prabhu Deva’s own life, his rise from a chorus dancer to a front-liner to one of the most successful men in his field.

ABCD Box office prediction: Dance lovers and fans of Prabhu Deva will ensure a decent box office opening for ABCD.. A lot would depend on word-of-mouth if the film has to recover it’s costs. If it does well, expect more dance-based films in the near future.

  • lol where are akshay fans who were abusing srk during jthj release…look abcd has taken almost the double opening of special 26!! lol!! akshay kumar is no more….

  • Yes, special 26 has got pretty good reviews & the wom is good as well. It is much more entertaining, interesting, well made & is million times better than all of srk’s last 5 movies combined. Hope it will collect more than srk’s highest grossing crap movie in india. If craps like ra.1,don 2 & jthj can earn more than 100 crores then a special movie like special 26 deserves much more than 100 crores. Akki you simply rock, well done!
