All eyes may be on Shah Rukh Khan on the eve of release of Karan Johar 's Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna but a major share of the accolades for the film could well go the way of Abhishek Bachchan

SRK may be playing the central character in 'Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna' but if trade sources are to be believed Abhishek may prove to be the ultimate dark horse who gets all claps from the kids, youths and front benchers as well as the sympathy of the family audiences, if initial reaction to the television promos and trailors of the film are anything to go by.

Those who have seen the rushes of the film say that SRK's "overwhelming presence" in the film notwithstanding, several sequences in 'Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna' which present Abhishek as the "archetypical angry young man" may endear him to the cinegoers in the same way as Amitabh Bachchan 's angry young man persona in films like Deewar , Zanjeer and Trishul did in the 1970s.

In the film, SRK plays the character of a person who, caught in a loveless marriage, falls in love with the character of Rani Mukherjee , who, while married to Abhishek, too finds herself stifled in her marriage.

Sources in the film trade say that though the film, essentially, revolves around SRK as is the case with most films by Johar, the sympathies of the audiences, specially the kids and family audiences who form a major proportion of the cinegoers could well go to the character played by Abhishek in the film.

This, coupled with the immense popularity of the two songs "Rock N Roll Soniye" and "Where's the Party tonight" in which Abhishek appears, could result in Junior Bachchan adding to his already big fan following among the kids and the youth after "Kajra Re" and "Right Here Right Now" songs in Bunty Aur Babli and Bluffmaster .

Infact the song "where's the party tonight" picturised on Abhishek and Preity Zinta in the film, as also the "Rock and Roll Sonie" song picturised on Amitabh, Abhishek and Preity, are a huge rage among all sections, specially the youth and the children.

While both Amitabh and Abhishek come across as exquisite in the "Rock N Roll Soniye" song, which has been appearing in television promos of the film on various satellite channels for quite some time now, Abhishek is simply fabulous in the song "where's the party tonight" which already has the youth dancing to its groovy beats reminding the viewers of "Say Na Say Na" and "Right Here Right Now' from "Bluffmaster".

"Rock N Roll Soniye" could well prove to be as popular as the "Kajra Re" song in "Bunty Aur Babli" which had the whole nation dancing to its beat. Trade sources say Kajol and John Abraham will also be seen in this video. While Kajol's will be a fleeting appearance in the song, John is said to feature in a scene as a Disc Jockey.

Further, "What's the party tonight", which was picturised by Johar recently, could create the same buzz as the "Right Here Right Now" song.

Analysts say that going by the way even the brief glimpses of the songs, in television promos of the film, have the kids and the youth going crazy, Abhishek could well run away with all the "seetis" of the front benchers as well as young boys and girls, who today constitute a major proportion of the cinegoers in the country.
