Talvar v/s Singh is Bling screens on Oct 2
The release date of 2nd October is extremely important for Talvar. It was on the same date, last year that Vishal Bhardwaj’s Haider had released, which was appreciated by both the audience and the critics. Bang Bang had also released on the same day. This year, the same technical team of Haider is back with Talvar to enthrall the audience.
October 2 has a strange history of box office clashes. Last year Bang Bang and Haider had clashed at the box office. This year, on the same day, Singh Is Bliing and Talvar are clashing. Vishal Bhardwaj, who was the director of Haider, is the producer of Talvar. While both Bang Bang and Haider did well at the box office, it’s the latter that scored big with the audience.
October 2 is becoming an interesting date. In 2013, Besharam had released on the same date and in 2014 Bang Bang and Haider clashed. It’s interesting that the team of Haider has come back with Talvar. This time they are taking on another commercial potboiler, Singh Is Bliing very much like Bang Bang.
The story of the film revolves around the sensational murder of 14-year old Aarushi Talwar and 45-year old Hemraj Banjade, on the night of May 15-16, 2008. The film stars Irrfan Khan, Konkona Sen Sharma, Tabu and Sohum Shah in key roles.
