Bodyguard vs Yellow Boots on bipolar FridayActor and mass entertainer Salman Khan's Bodyguard, which is a remake of a remake of a remake literally has no new story to tell, but it is bravely jostling for the box office crown on an extended holiday weekend with bold storyteller Anurag Kashyap's unsettling That Girl In The Yellow Boots.
For Khan, presently recuperating from a painful nerve ailment, this is a road he has walked down before with macho cop romp Dabangg that went on to set revenue records. He soon followed it up with romantic action comedy Ready.
But from the look of it, Bodyguard, despite its insipid plotline and repetitive performance from India's current favourite performer, is already on its way to becoming a runaway hit. Khan's character Lovely Singh is putting up a spirited fight with Kalki Koechlin's Ruth in Yellow Boots.
Bodyguard is made on a budget of Rs 60 crore and according to reports it has already recovered Rs 22crore net in its opening. It is bound to be a magnet for NRI audiences. On the other hand, Kashyap is also looking at his first worldwide release. None of his films have ever reached international audiences beyond festivals as Indian distributors are sceptical of giving them a global release. It was denied permission to be screened at the Dubai International Film Festival (DIFF) last year due to its bold content.
But this is a weekend of interesting choices for viewers too with the dominantly derisive comedy competing with Kashyap's discomfiting tale of the corrupting of a young girl in a city that really doesn't give a damn.
The film is co-written by Koechlin, who as usual, gets in to the skin of the character she plays. Ruth is searching for her father and supporting herself as a masseuse in a parlour when she isn't giving in to her addict boyfriend's sexual demands....being a human...
