DRONA VS KIDNAP
he who gave us the seminally boring Bas Itna Sa Khwab Hae!) is a socio-fantasy-mythological film. Giving DRONA a very tough competition would be Kidnap, releasing on 1st Oct, directed by Sanjay Gadhvi (Tasted success earlier in both the Dhooms).
DRONA is the second Directorial venture for Goldie
Behl after Bas Itna Sa Khwab Hai which was a box-office dud. The budget of DRONA
is much higher and the star-cast is also stronger then his last film. The film will
show the solo star power of Abhishek since no big name is attached to this film
apart from him and Priyanka. No Big Director like Mani-Ratnam or Big Producer
like Yashraj so a lot will depend on him.
KIDNAP has been another ‘much-awaited’ movie
and all the hype is surrounding Imran Khan’s negative role. Fresh out of the
success of Jaane Tu... Imran Khan is riding high on the success wave and at
present provides more attraction than Abhishek. Sanjay has also done nothing
apart from the Dhoom series. So this can also be considered as his second attempt.
Though Dhoom was produced by Yashraj and hence Aditya had an influence in those
films. Still, Kidnap is produced by Ashtavinayak which is also a good
production house so production quality won’t suffer.
My first choice is definitely KIDNAP. What yours???
