No Movie to fight Veer

It’s been not long when there were three movies set to release on 22nd January. It was a triangular race among RGV’s Rann, Salman Khan starrer Veer and Vishal Bharadwaj produced Ishqiya. But things changed, and Ishqiya, which was earlier set for a December 11 release, was shifted to 29th January.

I was kind of happy with the development as I’d get 22nd January for Rann and Veer and I was certainly going to watch Rann first. With all three on same day it would be difficult as both Rann and Ishqiya are on my ‘awaited’ list.

But things changed even more, I guess after the music release of Veer, and even Ram Gopal Varma shifted his Rann to 29th January. Now while I’ll have only a Veer on 22nd, I will again have both Rann and Ishqiya coming on the same day. Salman Khan fan power?

By the way, My Name is Khan, which was supposed to clash with Amitabh Bachchan Ben Kingsley starrer Teen Patti, will be all alone too, as Teen Patti has been shifted to 26th February, a date with seven movies’ names on it right now. That means many more shifts in line.

After much discussion, they shifted their movie by one week to 18th November, and now Ishqiya and Dulha Mil Gaya have been moved to January, leaving Rocket Singh alone for a free ride in the sky.
