After Ranbir Kapoor’s Animal, will Ajay Devgn’s sports drama leave an impact despite the run time?

Maidaan: After Ranbir Kapoor

This Eid, all eyes will be on the clash of Bade Miyan Chote Miyan and Maidaan. Akshay Kumar and Ajay Devgn have clashed at the box office on many occasions. Both the films are from two totally different genres. Maidaan is a sports drama around the life and times of football coach Syed Abdul Rahim. He took India to a couple of victories in the Asian Games in 1951 and 1962. On the other hand, Bade Miyan Chote Miyan is a high-octane entertainer that is shot in exotic locations with lavish production values. Also, Maidaan has a run-time of over three hours like the 2023 blockbuster Animal. Will the run-time impact Maidaan? Here are a few reasons why it is a force at the box office?
