Shah Rukh Khan starrerRaees and Hrithik Roshan starrerKaabil are going to hit the screens all across the world on 25th Jan 2017. Raees was planned for a launch during Eid in 2016 and would have clashed with Sultan but for some unforeseen reasons, the movie was postponed. Both Raees and Kaabil have a strong storyline and the best part is India has enough screens to accommodate two big films releasing on the same day. However, media and fans love to talk about which movie will make more money and it is obvious to think in a biased manner for the fans.
Now, let’s discuss the storyline first. Raees is based on the background of the 1980s. The movie is loosely based on the life of crime-lord Abdul Latif who was active during the 80s in Gujarat and the areas nearby. If the movie is going to be as good as the trailer, then we can be assured that it will be full of drama, action, romance and strong dialogues. It is a perfect period masala film that has all the ingredients for a successful movie. The movie has some fine star cast including NawazuddinSiddiqui and Mahira.
On the other hand, Kaabil is going to bring the magic created by Father-Son duo whohave to brighten the lives of movie buffs with movies like Kaho Na Pyaar hai, Koi Mil Gaya, Krrish and Krrish 3. The last clash that Hrithik’s Mohenjo Daro had with Akshay Kumar’s Rustom didn’t go well for Hrithik but the story was much weaker in comparison to Kaabil. Kaabil is a story of a visually impaired dubbing artist who fell in love with the love of his life who is also blind. The tragedy hit their happy life and Hrithik fights against powerful evil people who destroyed his life.
Both the movies have all the aspects needed for a perfect movie. However, Raees has made more buzz due to a number of controversies along with the best possible PR. On the other hand,Kaabil has got good reviews for the music. SRK without any doubt has a larger fan base in both local and global arenas. It will definitely put weight on the success of Raees. Even in the past, SRK movies have done much better when there is a clash with a big budget movie. The fans of both the actors are looking forward to the movies and they have been posting screenshots of booked tickets all over the social media. No matter whom you love more, it will be an awesome opportunity to make this coming holiday break a movie marathon with back-to-back two movies!
