One Year Of Bajrangi Bhaijaan

We know by now that Eid has become synonymous to watching a Salman Khan film. It all began with the 2009 blockbuster ‘Wanted’ and the tradition lives on. Bhai has had five other films that released on the auspicious day and all of them proved to be money-spinners. Somehow, the ‘Salman Khan + Eid= Blockbuster’ formula always, always seems to work. This time around, his latest flick, Sultan, released and is shattering all records.

Last year, on this very day, Bajrangi Bhaijaan hit theaters and its performance at the box-office, despite the release of the Prabhas-starrer Baahubali: The Beginning, was no surprise.

On its first anniversary, we thought it might be interesting to compare it to Bhai’s latest outing.

Number of Screens/Box Office Collections
Bajrangi Bhaijaan, having released in 4000 screens, minted about INR 184.62 crore in its first week, while Sultan earned INR 208.82 crore in the same time, with an additional 350 screens.

Looks like nobody breaks Bhai’s records better than Blockbuster Bhai himself!

Action Sequences
The success of every Salman Khan film is usually proportional to the number of goons he hits. That was probably not the case with Bajrangi. Shot in a realistic manner, Pawan Kumar Chaturvedi, is not portrayed as a super-human. Rather Bhaijaan is just being human, instead.

In Sultan, the actor reinvents himself, to play a wrestler. He doesn’t just go shirtless like in all his other films, he dares to come out in a langot, gains immense weight and re-sculpt his body. We see him battle opponents and making every high-speed sequence work, even the clichéd ones.

Sultan is one of Vishal-Shekhar‘s most diverse albums to date. It consists of romantic numbers and also songs that could make your groove to them. Not to forget the biggest highlight – Salman crooning his versions of the songs.

Pritam is the man behind the melodious songs of Bajrangi Bhaijaan, which were mostly situational. No Munni Badnam in this one. The only Munni you see, is the little Harshali Malhotra. We somehow missed the Salman versions, though!

One Liners
Unlike all other Salman Khan flicks, Bajrangi Bhaijaan does not have any badass one liners (the kind we are used to). So no Salman-isms here!

Sultan on the other hand, may not have any of the ‘ek baar jo maine commitment kar di’ kind of lines, but is not short of inspirational lines.
