wo grand films of the year ‘Dilwale’ and ‘Bajirao Mastani’ will be hitting the silver screens on December 18. The debate to watch which movie first is the chaos happening amongst the movie fanatics. ‘Dilwale’and ‘Bajirao Mastani’, both are of different genres with an amazing star cast. The star cast of both the films are on an amazing promotional spree. The trailers, posters, songs, etc. all have been magnificent of both these upcoming flicks. To pick on any one of them is just getting difficult as the big day is nearing.
Sanjay Leela Bhansali vs Rohit Shetty
The number of silver screens in India are now divided between the father of epic romances, Sanjay Leela Bhansali, and the master of entertainment, Rohit Shetty. While Bhansali promises grandeur and excellence with ‘Bajirao Mastani’ as seen in ‘Goliyon Ki Raasleela:
Ram-Leela’ and ‘Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam,’ Rohit Shetty rides high on the success of ‘Chennai Express’ which had smashed all records on the box-office. Let’s not forget, the common link between them is – Deepika Padukone, the queen of blockbusters.
Biopic vs love story
‘Bajirao Mastani’ has been stirring up a lot of controversies due to its content and this has not gone down well with Bajirao’s original heirs and the keepers of culture. However, the film has also garnered a lot of publicity due to this, apart from the fact that it tells the tale of the forgotten wife of a brave Peshwa, which seems intriguing in itself. On the other hand, SRK termed ‘Dilwale’ to be a family movie which suits the tastes of the happy-go-lucky kind of audience. The superstar, on the other hand, called ‘Bajirao Mastani’ niche and historical but the claim was rubbished by actress Deepika Padukone, as reported by Deccan Chronicle.
Historical romance vs Bollywood drama
‘Bajirao Mastani’ is a historical film and Sanjay Leela Bhansali has ensured that it looks realistic. While Deepika Padukone had to go make-up free and Ranveer Singh had to part with his mane of hair, Priyanka Chopra had to drape herself in silk navvaris for her role of Kashibai in the film.
Far from the Bajirao Peshwa biopic, ‘Dilwale’ is a typical Rohit Shetty action flick that rides high on romance and drama. With Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol romancing each other in the visually mesmerising, ‘Gerua’ number and Varun Dhawan grooving with Kriti Sanon on hip-hop beats in the song ‘Manma emotion,’ ‘Dilwale’ seems to be the most rewarding treat for SRK fans.
Battle vs urban action
Sanjay Leela Bhansali is trying his hands at the war genre for the first time with ‘Bajirao Mastani’ and the results are impressive indeed. Watching Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone fighting valiantly on the battlefield is awe inspiring. A war film seems to be a welcome change for the audience. On the other hand, Rohit Shetty has already proved his box-office mettle with ‘Chennai Express’. Flying cars, high jumps from huge trucks, speedy car chases near the cliff in ‘Dilwale’ look tempting enough for those waiting for a fun Bollywood flick.
SRK-Kajol magic vs Ranveer-Deepika chemistry
Now who can deny the powers of the evergreen jodi of Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol! Uniting five years after their last blockubuster, ‘My Name Is Khan,’ Kajol and SRK return with yet another love story, ‘Dilwale’. While the king of romance had created box-office history with Deepika Padukone in ‘Chennai Express,’ he will be looking forward to spice things up with his pairing with Kajol. However, Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh have already impressed us with their passionate roles in Bhansali’s ‘Goliyon Ki Raasleela: Ram-Leela’ and watching the team’s next venture ‘Bajirao Mastani’ is all that we had been asking for.
