Alia Bhatt’s leading lady Gangubai Kathiawadi, directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali, has put a smile on the faces of Bollywood producers. Gangubai made a tremendous start at the box office. The effect of it can be seen in full swing until the Holi weekend in March. Outside of movie theaters, the view can be as common as in the old days. Many major movies are set to premiere on Holi. Amitabh Bachchan’s Jhund on March 4 and Akshay Kumar Bachchan’s Action Animator Pandey on March 18. Exactly one week later is the RRR of the SS Rajamouli. Bachchan Pandey’s trailer and song are out. The hype has started to appear in the audience regarding the movie.
Although there is no direct competition from any other Bollywood movies of Akshay Kumar’s movie at the box office, but outside the cinema hall, a movie definitely looks like a roadblock. This movie is Jalsa. A suspenseful drama. Vidya Balan and Shefali Shah play leading roles in Jalsa. At the center of Jalsa’s intriguing story is a journalist and her cook. The story of both will be presented in front of the audience immersing us in the syrup of complex, psychic and emotional triggering human. The film is directed by Suresh Triveni. Those who are not familiar with the name Suresh Triveni should know that he made an interesting movie as Tumhari Sulu with Vidya and Manav Kaul.
Vidha Balan’s first glimpse of Jalsa.
Tumhari Sulu, made on a medium scale, has entertained the audience well and also garnered a splendid amount at the box office. Made at around Rs 20 crore, the film earned over Rs 50 crore at the box office. As far as Jalsa is concerned, the story of the film is said to be very unique and interesting. The first look at Vidya and Shefali’s characters has been released today. Jalsa will stream directly on Amazon Prime Video on March 18. There is a good chance that the movie that will be released on the Holi weekend will block the path of a part of the audience that goes to the cinemas.

Kangana’s Dhaakad also has a release date, the film is in conflict
On the other hand, the new release date for Kangana Ranaut’s action animator Dhaakad has also been revealed. The film will open in theaters on May 27. Dhaakad is touted as Bollywood’s first spy thriller with a female lead in the lead role. This is Kangana’s second film in a row after Thalaivi which is released in four languages including Hindi: Tamil, Malayalam and Telugu. Previously, the Kangana movie was supposed to be released in April this year, but after the third wave, the filmmakers postponed the date. Now the new date has been announced. By the way, the elder will be released in theaters on the same day. Major is a medium scale movie but his story is that of a martyr. Major Martyr Sandeep Unnikrishnan. Major Sandeep had sacrificed his life for the country in the 11/26 terrorist attacks in Mumbai. Shashi Kiran Tikka has directed the film, while Advi Shesh and Shobhita Dhulipala have major roles. It will be interesting to see Kangana’s movie clash with Major.
Can Jalsa cast a shadow on Bachchan Pandey?
As far as Bachchan Pandey is concerned, he may be overshadowed by the OTT film Jalsa. Suresh Triveni has a fun storytelling style. The way he presented the history of urban middle class women in Tumhari Sulu is commendable. Jalsa is also showing the history of working women. Although the story was shown through comedy in Tumhari Sulu, Jalsa’s story must have been set in emotion. The Bachchan Pandey buzz has held up great so far, but if Jalsa starts to make a splash too, then the Prime Video movie may split the audience with Bachchan Pandey over the festive season.
Anyway, this evidence has been shown in movie theaters and digital clashes that whenever good content has arrived on OTT, it has hurt theaters. Several earlier movies are examples of this. Now Jalsa’s performance will be monitored in front of Bachchan Pandey. Another special feature of the film directed by Suresh Triveni is the good star cast of the film. Apart from Vidya, Shefali, Manav Kaul, Rohini Hattangadi, Iqbal Khan, Vidhatri Bandi, Shrikant Mohan, Surya Kasibhatla and Shafin Patel have important roles in the film. Starcast seems to guarantee excellent performance.
