8th March, 2013 saw the release of two completely different flavors; Tigmanshu Dhulia's Saheb, Biwi aur Gangster Returns, a sharper, smarter and intelligent tale of crime, lust and betrayal, and Anshul Sharma's Saare Jahaan Se Mehnga which is a satirical story of inflation and rapidly rising prices.

Saheb, Biwi aur Gangster Returns, sequel to Saheb, Biwi aur Gangster (2011) opened with a decent collection of 3.50 crores at the domestic Box Office, which then increased to 4.25 crore on the second day of its release. The movie now stands at a domestic total of about 12.75 crore. In two days Saheb, Biwi aur Gangster Returns recovered its total budget. Outlining struggle of power in U.P., it made fair business in Delhi, U.P. and East Punjab by collection over 12 crores domestically. The film features Irrfan Khan, Jimmy Shergill, Mahie Gill and Soha Ali Khan. The characters are portrayed very well and the conflicts they share is easily identifiable. Even though it is an intelligent story, the balance is maintained overall.

Contrary to it, Saare Jahaan se Mehnga released with an earning of just 1 crore on its first day and is only expected to earn 3-4 crores till weekend. Though it had an attention seeking concept, which relates to the growing frustration among middle class due to inflation, the writers failed to build a central concept. The movie is a relevant and honest portrayal of this overarching issue, but it does not contain anything particularly interesting to draw audiences. It features Sanjay Mishra, Pragati Vishwa Mohan Badola, Rajan Chhabra, Disha, Pramod Pathak, Zakir Hussain and Sitaram Panchal.

Though neither of the movies were big openers this year, Saheb, Biwi aur Gangster Returns managed to do better than its competitor Saare Jahaan se Mehenga in terms of revenues and collections. A thriller concept and satirical drama in different packages though presented a wide array for audiences to pick from, but it appears that both only managed to garner a gloomy response. We, at BollyCurry, advise you movie-goers to wait a bit before celebrating the real essence of March and the movies it shall bring!
