Yesterday, Yash Raj Films shared the trailer of Qaidi Band and it will star two new faces that YRF launched recently. The film is about a group of prisoners who get to form a music band for an event in a prison and how music changes their lives.
Aadar Jain and Anya Singh are making debut through Qaidi Band and it is releasing on 25th August. One cannot resist but point out the similarity of stories between Qaidi Band and Farhan Akhtar’s Lucknow Central.
Lucknow Central is also a story of a group of prisoners who form a music band and an NGO worker helps them recognize. Another important aspect is that both the movies are releasing at an interval of 3 weeks which is difficult for the film releasing afterwards as audience won’t be interested in watching the same story again.
Qaidi Band is releasing on 25th August while Lucknow Central is slated to hit the theaters on 15th September but there is still no first look or teaser-trailer from Farhan so there are chances it might postpone.
It will be a risky release date on 15th September as Qaidi Band will be release before it with the same concept and story. Let’s see what happens in coming days and what steps are taken by these film-makers to avoid losses due to the similarity.
