Seems that Leader and Kedi, releasing on two consecutive days, will fight for the top slot at the box office. While Shekar Kammula's film Leader is slated for a February 11 release, Nagarjuna-starrer Kedi is releasing on the next day. Both the films were earlier slated for a Sankranthi release.
However, they both belong to different genres, which may dent the market of any of these. While Leader is a "bold and message-oriented" film that is coming up with a political commentary, Kedi is an out-and-out commercial entertainer, with hero Nagarjuna playing a character with negative shades.
If Daggubati Rana's debut film sees him play Telugu cinema's 'Oke Okkadu,' Kedi, directed by debutant Kiran Kumar, sees the charming actor Nagarjuna in the role of a scheming gambler. Also, Kedi boasts of many North Indian acting talent. On the other hand, Leader is about how an idealistic politico grows up in the field of politics and brings about, well, 'a change.'
