This Friday we will see the first box Office clash of 2022 between Amitabh Bachchan starrer Jhund and DC’s The Batman. As the situation is getting normal, both films looks to benefit from relaxation in the multiplexes.
Based on the life of Vijay Barse, Jhund will be an interesting watch since it is being made by the director of Marathi smash hit fiilm Sairat – Nagraj Manjule. For our audence, Nagraj Manjule had also made an excellent story in the recently released Amazon’s Unpaused 2. With Gangubai Kathiawadi reviving the box office last week, Jhund has the potential to bring the audience and will completely depend on the word of mouth reviews. The sports drama will clash with the Hollywood biggie – The Batman, which might of some competition and should open between Rs 3-4 crore on its first day.
Batman begins, starring Christian Bale, and directed by Christopher Nolan re-booted the Batman series after Batman And Robin met with not-so-great response from the audience. The success of new Batman film gave birth to probably the best reviewed super hero films, The Dark Knight and Dark Knight Rises. After a long wait, the makers have released the trailer of much anticipated The Batman second trailer which focuses on the crime drama, action stunts, the Cat Woman and The Riddler, who sends out the video chat message for Batman to solve the puzzle. I liked the second trailer more than the first one as it has some action stunts, more emotions and more characters which invokes the curiosity to watch the film which releases on 4th March 2022.
Looking at the buzz, the Robert Pattinson starrer definitely has the potential to open big and should mint somewhere between Rs 6-8 crore on its first day. The film is directed by Matt Reeves, who wrote the screenplay along with Peter Craig and produced by DC Films, 6th & Idaho, and Dylan Clark Productions, and set for distribution by Warner Bros. Pictures
