After Queen, Kangana Ranaut is back at the box office as Revolver Rani and she would battle it out with musical Kaanchi and thriller Samrat & Co. for the top honours when the threesome hit the screens on Friday.
Kangana Ranaut loves to push the envelope by stepping into
unconventional roles and she continues the trend with Revolver
Rani, which sees her in a never-seen-before avatar of a don
shooting guns and mouthing dialogues in profane language.
With her brilliant performance in Queen, Kangana not
only raised the bar for her contemporaries but for herself too thus
raising fans' expectations from her. Debutant director Sai Kabir
describes her character as 'ugly' and non-glamorous.
Kangana will face stiff competition from Rajeev Khandelwal,
another brilliant actor, in Samrat & Co. A lot is
riding on the film because it is the first feature film as a
producer by Kavita Barjatya, known for making TV shows. Besides,
Rajeev too needs a big hit.
The flavour and setting of the two films are completely
different -Tigmanshu Dhulia produced Revolver Rani is set
in the backdrop of the notorious Chambal area, while detective
movie Samrat & Co., featuring Rajeev as a suave
investigator, has been shot in the scenic Himachal Pradesh and
director Kaushik Ghatak has used VFX to make the plot interesting
Subhash Ghai is all geared to give them a tough competition with
his directorial venture Kaanchi, the third film in the
fray. The film, starring Kartik Tiwari and Mishti Mukherjee, has a
rural set up and has been shot in hill station too. Its tone and
tenure is serene.
The film marks Ghai's comeback after five years.
