Joaquin, Brad To Give Kartik Company, Trade Analysts Speak

Kartik Aryan  will  now have  Joaquin Phoenix and  Brad Pitt for company on Valentine’s Day  when  the Imtiaz Ali -directed  Love Aaj Kal makes  it to the  theatres.

 Sources say the re-release  of  the  two Hollywood biggies will make  a substantial dent  in the  collections  of   Love Aaj Kal.

Trade  guru  Taran  Adarsh doesn’t  see the  collections of  Love Aaj Kal as  being affected  by the Hollywood  re-releases. 

Trade analyst Amod Mehra feels there  is  no clash of interest  here.  “Oscar-winning audiences are classes.And Love Aaj Kal is for youngsters and family audience.So it won’t effect the collections.”

Trade insider  Girish Johar agrees with  Mehra.  “Personally I dont think they would pose as a major threat to the new release Love  Aaj Kal (LAK). But yes, cinema lovers would definitely want to see the films which have earned accolades across the globe. I would personally definitely plan to watch them again along with LAK. The  first choice will definitely will be LAK.”

 However a  source attached  to  one  of  the Oscar re-releases who wishes  to go unnamed  thinks  Oscars bring additional   audiences to theatres.

“Even  those  who don’t  watch  English-language  films regularly, get interested  in films that win Oscars. I  think there will be  a sizable footfall in the  metropolises specially to see  Sam Mendes’ 1917,  Quentin Tarantino’s Once  Upon A  Time  In America  and  Todd Phillips’ Joker,”  opines the source.
