John Abraham’s most recent offering, Batla House, has been prevailing over audiences since its release. Among the many who have appreciated the film is cricketer-turned-politician Gautam Gambhir. The Member of Parliament took to Twitter to express his perspectives on the film.
Gautam composed on Twitter: “.@TheJohnAbraham you delivered a masterpiece in #BatlaHouse. A must- watch for everyone!” However, a large number of Gautam’s fans were isolated as they would see it with respect to the film. While one user composed that it was an “absolutely rubbish movie, hey @alankar6427 your inputs please dude. #BatlaHouse” another said, “I could feel the pain of a police officer In fact it was better than mangal”.
Batla House tells the Story of DCP Sanjeev Kumar Yadav, who headed the Batla House encounter that took place in New Delhi’s Jamia Nagar in 2008. Speaking about his experience on working in the film, John had said: “To me, Batla House is not just a film about the most Controversial encounter in recent times, an incident that got twisted and turned to suit different political agendas. It is a much bigger human story of DCP Sanjeev Kumar Yadav, who went through excruciating personal turmoil in the line of duty.”
“Often in such cases, we just focus on the professional side of a person’s life, forgetting the effect it has on their mental well being. The post-trauma stress that Sanjeev Yadav went through, and his struggle to come to terms with it and rise above it, make for an inspiring journey, and I have tried to encapsulate it in the character I play,” he had proceeded.
Batla House released on a similar day as Akshay Kumar’s Mission Mangal and looks like both the films have done well at the box office. Be that as it may, Mission Mangal has improved. As per a report in Boxofficeindia, after the first weekend, Mission Mangal had grabbed an expected Rs 97 crores, while Batla House had gathered Rs 47 crores after four days.
