Farhan’s KCK and Amitabh’s Teeni Patti in a stormy clash

Two much-waited Bollywood films ‘Karthik Calling Karthik’ and ‘Teen Patti’ are gearing up for action tomorrow, as they release at theatres nationwide.
There certainly is enough room for the high profile openings, but the producers and distributors usually avoid releasing two highly priced films on the same day.
But quiet interestingly, the film backers have already predicted that there is going to be the biggest box office bang, as the two films to be released tomorrow have the most bankable stars, which could create a surge at the box-office.
Teen Patti and KCK could spark a box-office record
Producers of ‘Teen Patti’ and ‘Karhik Calling Karthik’ have made every possible effort to market. Eventually it will turn out well only if the audience would like it.
It’s a stiff competition between ‘Teen Patti’ and ‘Karhik Calling Karthik’, and theatre owners are expecting a record setting weekend gross.
And responding to the question about the box-office clash, manager at Chitra theatre in Dadar, Mr Bhatia stated, “"People want to see films and they are always waiting for good movies. The promos of Karthik Calling Karthik have done their job. People are already talking about it. We are getting many inquires. I think people are eager to watch the couple's chemistry in the film.”
Two songs of KCK already a hit
The songs in Karhik calling Karthik, ‘Hey Ya’ and ‘Uff Teri Adaa’, have already creamed up charts for its appealing tunes, while Teen Patti's music too is immensely popular.
KCK and Teen Patti’s advance booking started yesterday morning, and responding to questions about the audience’s reactions to buying tickets, Santosh Bhatia of Premiere theatre informed, “People are not interested in watching Deepika Padukone. People like to watch Rani Mukherjee, Preity Zinta, Katrina Kaif and Priyanka Chopra. Deepika is not a big star. Yes. Farhan has never disappointed his audience so people will come to watch Karthik Calling Karthik.”
He also responded about Teen Patti, stating, “Big B is the biggest star in this country and no doubt Teen Patti will sell only because of him.”
However, Virendra Agarwal of Metro Big Cinemas conveyed that audiences are excited to watch both the films, and that there have been equal inquiries for both.
KCK is a romantic thriller, a genre that is yet to be explored in Bollywood. An out an out commercial film, KCK is Vijay Lalwani’s directorial debut and starring in the leading role are Farhan Akhtar and Deepika Panduakone.
On the other hand, ‘Teeni Patti’ by advertising professional turned director Leena Yadav, has Amitabh playing a rejected mathematician Venkat Subramanium in the film.
Sir Ben Kingsley and R. Madhavan will be seen sharing the screen space with him. Incidentally, this is the first time that two great actors like Amitabh Bachchan and Sir Ben Kingsley have come together for a film.
