Similar concepts but contrasting results in the recent offerings from Hindi and Punjabi cinema. - An interesting observation by Bobby Sing

02 Jun, 2015 | Articles on Cinema

As a rare coincidence never seen before, there has been an interesting similarity between some of the latest releases from Hindi and Punjabi cinema resulting in contrasting results at the box office.
Last week we had Tanu Weds Manu Returns (Hindi) and Oye Yaara Ainvayi Ainvayi Lut Gaya (Punjabi) releasing on the same Friday having similar concepts of a loving couple going for a divorce and then getting back together in the end realizing their individual mistakes. However,beginning on a similar note, the stories had their own distinctive progression as two different films with exactly opposite results at the box office in terms of unanimous appreciation and monetary returns,clearly led by the incomparable leading lady Kangna Ranaut.
Interestingly a similar coincidence is there in the current week too when we have both Ishqedarriyaan (Hindi) and Gaddar – The Traitor (Punjabi) revolving around the same basic theme of a rich Indian industrialist settled abroad, returning back to India (Himachal/Punjab) to clear a misconception around the reputation of his family and his innocent father.But again the treatment and further developments in the scripts result in two different genre filmswith a role reversal in terms of box office results too, since this time it’s the Punjabi film that is sure to take the cake with a known leading face of Harbhajan Maan, breaking his good boy image by playing a grey character.
Nevertheless, it is indeed quite amusing to notice the rare similarities (similar beginnings) in two different language films released on the same Friday as a unique instance being repeated twice in succession.
