It is easy to display bravado and express confidence in yourself from a distance but as the actual confrontation draws closer, one can often be plagued by self-doubt and repent one’s bombastic statements.
Take, for example, this film that is scheduled to clash with a couple of other releases. The makers of the film have always been very vocal about their belief in their product and that they don’t mind going head-to-head against whoever else chooses to debut on that day. However, with the buzz around their film fast losing steam while the others gain traction, the makers are desperately trying to find a face-saving excuse to move from their scheduled date without seeming to have backed off from a fight.
Let us see if they succeed in their mission but it just drives home the lesson we were all taught in our early school years: look before you leap!
