Punjabi cinema is growing with each passing day and achieving new heights therefore, people love to watch punjabi movies as their content and entertainment fetch their interest and grabbed them to watch punjabi movies. Earlier, barely a punjabi movie releases on Friday but now frequently we can witness two releases on same day and they have to fight close to achieve success. Similarly, on 13th March’20 two punjabi movies are releasing, one is ‘Chal Mera Putt 2’ and other is ‘Ikko-Mikke’. Let’s give a glimpse which one is more there in heads and hearts of people.
Much talked about film ‘Ikko Mikke’ which shall mark the entrance of Satinder Sartaaj into the world of Punjabi cinema is releasing on the 13th of March, 2020. With this film, the makers are breaking the stereotypical image of Punjabi films and bringing in a fresh concept oriented film. The film will see Satinder Sartaaj and Aditi Sharma in lead roles.
Punjabi cinema is, undoubtedly, growing by leaps and bounds; yet a fact which is to be taken with a pinch of salt is that the segment of audiences who watch Punjabi films in theaters are limited. Be it a matter of choice, or the ever increasing ticket prices, a Punjabi film, seldom, witnesses a bumper box office opening.
Adhering to this prevalent scenario, 2 Punjabi films, Satinder Sartaaj’s Ikko Mikke and Amrinder Gill’s ‘Chal Mere Putt 2’, both having an immense potential to entertain the audiences are releasing on the same date; and this doesn’t seem to be an astute move. Punjab’s entertainment industry is flourishing which is evident from the fact that directors and producers from the rest of India and overseas are showing keen interest in the music, content, and artists of Punjab.
But, sadly, Punjab’s own artists’ fraternity fails to understand this. Regarding Ikko Mikke and Chal Mere Putt 2, the question which arises in everyone’s mind is that- is there some kind competitiveness brewing amidst the 2 artists of the respective films? The fact of the matter is that Ikko Mikke had announced its release date well in advance, and Chal Mere Putt 2 releasing on the same date doesn’t really seem to be a coincidence!
Two films of distinct genres, different story lines, witnessing the screen presence of iconic singers turned actors deserve different release dates as well for the benefit of the films and of the audiences. We wish for a peaceful and harmonious co-existence in the world of Punjabi entertainment which shall, most definitely, prove to be of universal benefit.
This is all about both the movies and yet there is still a week. Now what we have to observe is how much change we will observe further and which one movie will live upto the expectation of audience or both will. Now it’s your time to choose your movie.
