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.
