This year the
festival of lights, Diwali, is extra special for Bollywood. After a long gap of
12 years, two major films, Yash Raj Films' Jab Tak Hai Jaan
and Ajay Devgn
Films' Son of Sardar
released on the same day! Last time such much-awaited films released together on June 15th was back in
2001, when both the films, Gadar
turned out to be blockbusters.
Jab Tak Hai Jaan
is a romantic flick starring the King of Romance Shah Rukh
Khan along with the
gorgeous ladies, Katrina Kaif
and Anushka Sharma
. Being the last directorial of
the late legendary filmmaker Yash Chopra makes this film even more
special. The film revolves around Samar
Anand (Shah Rukh Khan
), who loves to play with his life by taking risks everyday
in the long going battle he has with the almighty that had snatched away his
ladylove Meera Thapar (Katrina Kaif
) 10 years back. Years after separation,
these two come face to face when a young, vibrant "super girl" Akira Rai
) comes into their lives.Son of Sardar
yet another Bollywood romance drama; a remake of Telugu movie Maryada Ramanna
The film features Ajay Devgn
, Juhi Chawla
, Sanjay Dutt
and Sonakshi Sinha
. It's about the journey of Jassi (Ajay Devgn
who falls in love-at-first-sight with Sukhmeet (Sonakshi) and then later ends
up as guest in her house which is full of comical sardars - The Sandhus. The
head of the house, Billu paaji (Sanjay Dutt
) wants to seek revenge on Jassi but
their hands are tied from doing so as Jassi is their (unwanted) house-guest and
guests should be treated like god as the saying goes.
Released on 2600
screens, Jab Tak Hai Jaan
has emerged as a clear winner among the two all over
India and overseas. But not by a huge margin, considering Son of Sardar
released at much fewer screens. Early estimates suggest, that the first day collections of
Jab Tak Hai Jaan
were around 15-16 Crores net while Son of Sardar
with an estimate first day earning of around 8-9 Crores.
wishes both the films a successful run and a very Happy and Prosperous Diwali
and New Year to everyone!Author: Komal
