Once Again Bollywood Vs Hollywood

This week again, number of movies are being released at box office. These include crime thriller Udta Punjab, fantasy drama Dhanak, action romantic Junooniyat & romantic drama Luv U Alia from Bollywood and thriller Now You See Me 2 from Hollywood. Among them, Udta Punjab has highest buzz because of its censorship controversy and it is expected to get far better than others.

Dhanak also has little hype among audience because of simple & innocent story and expected to do well after the release but in limited regions. The second installment of Hollywood’s very famous thriller franchise Now You See Me can divert mass towards itself if its content clicks. Junooniyat has nothing but known faces of Bollywood and decent music. Luv U Alia is at the last step with the score of zero.
