Diwali is almost here; so is one of the biggest clashes of 2016. Ajay Devgn’s Shivaay and Karan Johar’s Ae Dil Hai Mushkil both are releasing on 28th October. While both the films have received tremendous response for its promotions, it will be interesting to see how audience respond when the films are actually released. It goes without saying that it’s the content that will win this clash. So, if both the films have a good storyline, they can benefit from festival as people will obviously be flocking to theaters with their friends and families.
Now, if we talk about the trailer, Shivaay is looking much better than Ae Dil Hai Mushkil because of its strong storyline and much of its narrative is not revealed by Devgn. So, curiosity favors Shivaay and it is getting an upper hand due to the trailer. ADHM’s trailer seemed like the same story of romance, friendship and their dilemma. The film can work if they have something different in this relationship of four characters.
Now, coming to the songs, Ae Dil Hai Mushkil scores over Shivaay. Title song, Bulleya and other songs from the film are really brilliant. Shivaay’s songs are not bad but they don’t have much spark compared to ADHM. Let’s see how the music works for these films.

Another deciding factor is also the cast. Ajay Devgn has always been a credible actor who selects the films which are content driven. Shivaay is directed by him so the story will be mostly interesting. Ajay Devgn also has a good fan following and star value. But, apart from him and the story, other star cast is not well known. While that is irrelevant if the film clicks for the audiences, Ae Dil Hai Mushkil has three big stars who can attract an immense crowd for the film. Ranbir Kapoor, Anushka Sharma and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan have a gigantic following so it can give a tough competition to Shivaay at box office.
In a nutshell, Both the films have their strengths on which they are banking on. Let’s see what cinematic joy they bring this Diwali.
Who do you think will win the battle this Diwali? Shivaay or Ae Dil Hai Mushkil?
