A year back, we saw the clash of two big movies. While one was the action-packed entertainer ‘Bang Bang!’ starring Hrithik Roshan and Katrina Kaif, the film logging heads with it was Vishal Bhardwaj’s ‘Haider’- adaptation of Shakespeare’s ‘Hamlet’; starring Shahid Kapoor, Kay Kay Menon, Tabu, Irrfan Khan and Shraddha Kapoor.
While ‘Bang Bang!’ grossed better than ‘Haider’ at the box office, it was finally the Shahid Kapoor starrer which had the last laugh winning all the accolades and awards.
And on the very same day (2nd October), a year later, one is expecting history to repeat itself as Vishal Bhardwaj’s ‘Talvar’ will release against Akshay Kumar’s ‘Singh Is Bliing’!
‘Talvar’ is loosely based on Noida's Arushi-Hemraj double murder case which happened in 2008.
Apart from the release date, ‘Talvar’ shares many similarities with ‘Haider’- a crisp script, performance driven actors, content; and Irrfan Khan and Vishal Bhardwaj being the connecting points!
The movie has been directed by Meghna Gulzar and also stars Konkona Sen Sharma, Neeraj Kabi amongst others.
Well, let’s wait and watch if ‘Talvar’ does manage to captivate the audience and win their hearts just the way ‘Haider’ did!
