15th August is Independence Day, meaning a national holiday across the entire nation. And what do people do on national holidays? Obviously, watch the parade on their televisions, and feel all patriotic and nationalist, but that’s only in the first half of the day. What about the rest of the day? Well, the audience goes shopping, relaxing and watch new movies released in the theatres.
But guess what, this time on the forthcoming national holiday, the audience is going to find it a little difficult as to which movie to watch as there is a big clash going to happen in the cinema theatres on 15th August.
There are three major releases scheduled- these are Akshay Kumar’s Mission Mangal, John Abraham’s Batla House and Saif Ali Khan’s Sacred Games season-2. This will not be difficult only on the audience and the fans, but even the filmmakers.
Whenever there is a clash of the films, the weaker film is slashed out of the audience’s list very easily. The comparison between the films, its concept and story, and the lead actors of the film are some of the deciding factors through which the success of a film is decided.
Akshay Kumar’s Mission Mangal is about India’s determination Mars Orbiter Mission. The film is definitely going to increase the feeling of patriotism among the audience who decides to go and watch the film. Another factor which is adding the cherry to the cake for the film is that it has 5 Bollywood divas as its leading heroines, who have important roles individually. The film stars Akshay Kumar, Vidya Balan, Taapsee Pannu, Sonakshi Sinha, Kirti Kuhari, Nithya Menen, and Sharman Joshi as the lead actors. The film is directed by Jagan Shakti.
If talked about Balta House, it is a John Abraham starrer film and is a drama and action film. This film also will make the audience feel nationalist with its storyline and the sacrifices that the Indian police has to make when something goes wrong, and how they have to stay strong when the common man turns against them. The film is also inspired by true events which happened in 2008 and is directed by Nikhil Advani.
And now coming to Sacred Games, this is one of the most awaited web series by the audience who has a laid back attitude and prefers sitting at home and watching something on the digital platform, like Netflix and Amazon Prime. The first series of the show was a huge hit among the digital age audience and ever since the trailer of the second season has dropped, they just can’t wait for the Netflix original show to release. Sacred Games stars Saif Ali Khan as a Sikh police officer, Nawazuddin Siddiqui as the main antagonist of the show, and Radhika Apte and Pankaj Tripathy. The second season of the most awaited web series will also star Kalki Koechlin, Ranvir Shorey, Harshita Gaur, and Sobhita Dhulipala in prominent roles.
