Wasn't aware that F***ir was under consideration. Disappointing if true. The only person worthy and capable of standing in the same frame as Mohanlal and Rajni is SRK. If true this is also a great example of how every dog has it's day.
Thanks everyone for the nice words on Dangal. I will however stick to not watching it. I do not have peer pressure to deal with. I am also not spending money on that guy. He is an excellent example of a effective branding exercise for an incompetent, hollow product.
There was an interesting play of shows happening at my local multiplex this week. On Friday, Dangal went down from 4 shows to 2, Kaabil down from 4 to 3, and Raees up from 4 to 5. Saturday the split changed to Kaabil 2, Dangal 3 and Raees 5. Monday on though the shows change again to Kaabil 0, Raees 3, Dangal 4
I haven't watched Dangal (nor do I intend to), but it is seriously doing something right - like many of F***ir's recent films - where the paying audience is clearly determining how many shows of each film would meet demand.
EDIT: The remaining shows went to Jolly LLB 2 (4 shows, and the audience - including me - totally enjoyed the film). Akshay is doing a few things right too. I don't see a thread for that film, but Kudos to Akshay. He is mixing it up well, and doing a commendable job given his limited acting capabilities. He is coming across as far more earnest in his attempts, than most other top stars.
