Today we are going to witness the release of two movies, Parched and Banjo. Though both of them are not movies worth of hefty budget, but since they're releasing together this Friday, comparisons are ought to be made. They both will depict a fresh story on the silver screen and hence are creating buzz around! Let's have an insight on both the movies!
Banjo features Ritesh and Nargis in the pivotal roles. While Ritesh is playing the role of a street musician, Nargis would assay the role of a DJ. If trade expert advice are to go by, Nargis Fakhri and Riteish Deshmukh' Banjo has an upper hand over Radhika Apte's Parched.
Ritesh and Nargis have put their best foot forward to promote Banjo. They've lately been on the Kapil Sharma show to promote their film in the best way possible.
When asked to the trade analyst Akshaye Rathi about how would the films fare as far as box office success is concerned, he said “If you look at pure numbers, obviously Banjo will get great numbers because the film has a much wider release than Parched. Parched will be a very niche, small release because it's not a film meant for the mass audience. "
Directed by Leena Yadav, the film features Tannishtha Chatterjee, Radhika Apte, Surveen Chawla and Lehar Khan in lead roles. This movie highlights some sensitive roles such as marital rape amongst others.
While Banjo is said to be a purely commercial movie, Parched is more of an art film because of its explicit content and intriguing theme. However, as we know that Banjo might win at the box office, Parched too seems to be an interesting movie!
The analyst continuing his remarks on the movie said that "Parched isn’t meant for everyone. And therefore it will have a very niche audience. It won’t release in more than 350 odd cinemas whereas Banjo will possibly release in about 2000 cinemas. The target audience in case of both these films is widely different”.
No matter which movie fares better at the box office, both are interesting enough to watch and enjoy this weekend. So, what's your first choice?
