New Delhi. Rajamouli and Mani Ratnam are both big directors in the South Film Industry. Whenever the films of both of them come, there is a line of audience in the theater. When the movie RRR was released, we saw that the film was based on Hindu religion, due to which there was a natural love from the audience for that film. Apart from this, South’s film Karthikeya 2 was also released, which was also given good love by the audience. The audience keeps giving love to most of the films of South, but when the film is focused on Hindu religion, then it gets a little more love. This time the famous director of the south language Mani Ratnam is coming up with a new film named Ponniyin Selvan – 1 (Ponniyin Selvan). The film is based on the Chola Dynasty, the largest empire of Hinduism. Big stars of South are working in this film. At the same time, the film Vikram Vedha is also being released along with this film. Saif Ali Khan and Hrithik Roshan are going to appear in the lead roles in Vikram Vedha. This film is a remake of South. Apart from this, some controversy has also developed for both the stars. Since both the films are releasing on the same day, the audience is curious as to which of the two films will dominate the box office?
Collision between a big star and a contrasting star
Both Ponniyin Selvan 1 and Vikram Vedha are slated to release on 30 September. Hrithik Roshan and Saif Ali Khan in a film. The Hindi language audience is not happy with both the actors. While Ponniyin Selvan is working in the film Big Star of South Industry, apart from that the film has been made by a director like Mani Ratnam. There are many who worship Mani Ratnam, appreciate his film. Apart from this, there is no dearth of fans of Vikram, Karti, Jairam Ravi and Trisha Krishnan, who worked in the film. Both the starcast of the film and the director of the film are very famous and the work of both is appreciated. At the same time, beautiful Hindi language actress Aishwarya Rai is also going to be seen on the big screen after a long time in the film.
Film on Hindu Empire and South Remake clash
This film is being compared to Bahubali. As we know, after the release of Bahubali, the popularity of South’s cinema increased a lot. After this, films like Pushpa, RRR started calling the mass-audience into the cinema. Once again Ponniyin Selvan film is being considered as a competition film of Bahubali due to – budget, set design, famous cast – director and story of this film. Ever since the trailer came, the story of the film is showing adventure and depth. On the other hand, Vikram Vedha is a remake of the film South, which has been seen by many viewers in the South. The starcast of this film is based on only two actors who are also under the purview of controversy. Apart from this, after the arrival of the trailer, some people have liked the trailer, while some people have also disliked it.
A film on the history of Hindutva and a crime film clash
Ponniyin Selvan is a film that tries to show Hindutva. We all know that we have always been shown and taught to glorify the Mughals. We have been told about the empire of Aurangzeb, but not much has been mentioned about the empire of the Chola dynasty of Hindus. The Chola dynasty is counted as the largest empire till date. In which there was one brave and talented king. This was an empire that belonged to Hinduism and was one of the largest empires ever. There is nothing new in the story of Vikram Vedha. He is a criminal, a cop and there is a fight between the two. This film ran in the South during that period but now the times have changed. Apart from this, now the public has seen a lot of cinema. However, because the film had run in the South, the audience is expecting it to run in Hindi as well.
New story and remake clash
One thing is certain, when Ponniyin Selvan will go to see the film audience, they will get to see a new story. They will know about their Hindu religion and its largest empire. Big film sets will be seen. There will be information in the story as well as a film full of emotion and action. Apart from this, it is a period drama film. We have seen Baahubali as a period drama as a big hit. On the other hand, Vikram Vedha may be a big budget film, but it does not seem to be a big screen film. It does not seem to be such a thriller story, seeing that the audience enjoys watching a big screen cinema.
Marketing difference between the two films
One weakness of Ponniyin Selvan is that the film is not being promoted as much in the Hindi belt. In the South language, this film can do wonders. But if it has to do wonders in Hindi language, then this film will have to focus on its marketing. At the same time, the film Vikram Vedha has been promoted well in the Hindi language, apart from this, Hrithik’s fan following is also very good. This film (Vikram Vedha) is being released in more than 100 countries. In this sense, the film Ponniyin Selvan lags behind. Although the buzz of this film in South is likely to be good.
who will win
The Hindi version of the film is being distributed by Pen Marudhar Entertainment. Who has distributed famous films like RRR, Vikram, Sitaramam. For this reason, the expectation of the film increases. Well both the films will release on 30th September. Now tell me, what do you think a film made on the Chola dynasty of Hindus will do good business at the box office or Saif and Hrithik’s film Vikram Vedha will do good business at the box office.
