Starting today, The much-talked-about and keenly-anticipated film 'Ek Villain' and the Hollywood giant 'Transformers: Age Of Extinction' are battling for honours in terms of box office collections - last week 'Humshakals', which was panned by critics, managed to do well.
Apart from these two major releases, another film that will be competing is the Punjabi biggie 'Punjab 1984'.
Living up to the expectations, 'Ek Villain' dominated the market place with a massive opening across all sectors today. In fact, the tremendous hype that the film had generated prior to its release has resulted in an overwhelming start everywhere.
'Transformers: Age Of Extinction', which was expected to pose tough competition to 'Ek Villain', was, in fact, sidelined by the Mohit Suri-directed film. However, both these big ticket ventures will be affected in the Northern belt due to 'Punjab 1984'.
In a nutshell, 'Ek Villain' is expected to be the first choice of cinegoers, while 'Punjab 1984' is expected to lead in North.
