Two films as different as chalk and cheese release this Friday. While Finding Fanny is an out and out multiplex film, Creature 3D would register a presence amongst the masses. Both films have women driving the show as Deepika Padukone and Bipasha Basu are leading the show here. In fact their last association with the respective directors had paid off as well, what with Deepika and Homi Adajania delivering Cocktail and Bipasha along with Vikram Bhatt releasing Raaz 3 earlier. The promotion has been good too with the makers ensuring that their films get some good buzz in place well before the release.
All of this means that both films should get a decent start at the box office. Though one isn’t expecting a blockbuster start here, the face value attached to Finding Fanny should attract youth at premium multiplexes across the country, especially at major cities. On the other hand ‘Creature’ would start off well at single screens with much better footfalls at B and C centers.
Both films are arriving at a time when women central protagonists are fetching audience, case in point being Mardaani followed by Mary Kom. Also, since both films belong to different genre, it isn’t really a clash per se as respective producers T-Series as well as Dinesh Vijan & Fox are ensuring that they get good enough screen space. Having said that, eventually it is the content that counts and with good entertainment being promised for the target audience with industry insiders, who have had a dekko already, claiming that there is good meat in there, Finding Fanny as well as Creature should prove to be plus outings.
