The battle has simply begun, and issues are usually not wanting too rosy for the camps of Raees and Kaabil. Whereas Kaabil has received a lot of the critics’ love, Raees has the higher hand in the case of field workplace collections, a minimum of at first. Now the makers of Kaabil are accusing the makers of Raees of dominating its maintain over a lot of the screens. Whereas that’s one thing the 2 camps ought to work out within the days forward, (and never make issues ugly like what occurred with Jab Tak Hai Jaan and Son of Sardaar), I noticed each the films and realised that, even when the groups try to get an upperhand with one another over field workplace dominance, their merchandise have some very obvious similarities.
Listed here are seven similarities I discovered in each Kaabil and Raees, aside from its controversial frequent launch date. Evidently, SPOILER ALERT!
The hero-heroine contemporary pairing
Each Shah Rukh Khan and Hrithik Roshan are working for the primary time with Mahirah Khan and Yami Gautam respectively. Whereas Hrithik – Yami pairing seems cute and wonderful, SRK – Mahirah’s chemistry seems half-baked, as a result of the film treats their monitor like an afterthought.
The hero-director first time combo
Raees has the distinctive flavour of getting Shah Rukh Khan’s massy attraction mix with Raees Dholakia’s creative sensibilities. Sanjay Gupta could also be a veteran in Bollywood, however he’s working for the primary time with Hrithik Roshan, having principally collaborated with Sanjay Dutt.
The very proficient Narendra Jha is one other frequent issue. Identified for enjoying Shahid Kapoor’s father in Haider, Jha is seen enjoying a corrupt cop in Kaabil, who’s determined to seek out out that Hrithik’s character was behind the killings of the baddies. In Raees, he performs a Muslim don who’s liable for the rise and later downfall of Raees.
The Amitabh Bachchan issue
You might need seen the Kaabil trailer the place Hrithik imitates Amitabh Bachchan’s voice to idiot his spouse. The Large B affect can be evident in Raees, proper from the posters to a scene from Deewar being performed in the course of the film.
One of many leads die
Okay, this can be a correct spoiler, so please watch out in case you haven’t watched the film. In Kaabil, Yami’s character commits suicide after she was raped twice by the villains. In Raees, although Mahirah Khan survives the film, the identical can’t be stated about Shah Rukh Khan, who will get killed by Nawazuddin Siddiqui in a pretend encounter.
The gratuitous merchandise tune
We could carry on arguing whether or not each Lailaa O Lailaa and Haseeno Ka Deewana are literally required in Raees and Kaabil respectively, however they’re fashionable however. Each the merchandise songs are recreation of outdated in style songs, and each are set someplace across the villain’s hangout.
The nostalgic setting with a darkish tone
Raees and Kaabil are in no way popcorn flick. They’re darkish films with Raees having a bleaker ending, whereas Kaabil not less than ends with good successful over unhealthy. Additionally each motion pictures, deliberately or unintentionally, play homage to Bollywood motion pictures of the ’80s and ’90s.
