It’s the Valentine’s weekend and up for release are two intense love stories – Fitoor and Sanam Re. After long, one will get to see two films belonging to the same genre locking horns at the box office on February 12 and it would be interesting to see which one catches the viewers attention.
Fitoor is an adaptation of Charles Dickens’ classic Great Expectations. And one does have great expectations from the movie given its stellar star cast featuring Katrina Kaif, Aditya Roy Kapoor and the versatile Tabu in lead roles. The USP of the film lies in the new pairing of Katrina and Aditya and the chemistry the duo will whip up in the film.
The trailer as well as the music of the film have been well-received and another factor working in favour of the film is its marketing strategies that have done well to keep the film buzzing. With Salman Khan too chipping in to promote Fitoor first on Bigg Boss 9 and then by making an appearance on a comedy show to meet Katrina, the movie has received its share of publicity.

Not to forget, the timing of Katrina’s alleged break-up with Ranbir has also unwittingly made the actress hot property in media. Finally, what will cut ice with audience is the story and the performances. We will have to wait and watch how these pan out. Photos: Yami, Pulkit, Divya at ‘Sanam Re’ music concert
Sanam Re, on the other hand, is riding high on its musical score and brilliant cinematography. The movie is a love triangle revolving around Pulkit Samrat, Yami Gautam and Urvashi Rautela. The film has been buzzing courtesy the alleged Pulkit-Yami affair. It’s too early to surmise if the affair stories will translate into footfalls but the film definitely looks to be a visually delightful spectacle replete with mellifluous tunes.
Not to forget the smoking hot chemistry between Yami and Pulkit irrespective of whether they are dating or not. As always script would be the winner here again.Photos: Fitoor actors Katrina Kaif, Aditya Roy Kapoor go shopping at Janpath, Delhi
The only ace for the moment that Sanam Re has over Fitoor is the fact that no one knows how Sanam Re would end but for those who have read Great Expectations, Fitoor will end exactly like the book.
