What makes more sense for a Home Theathre

I presently own a Denon 1906 receiver,
I will be retiring it probably by year end. ( I quite like the Yamaha Aventage series, will probably procure it from the US later)
However I am planning on putting a HT together,
Considering there are several options available as a package (HTIB/cinema package) and components
which would be better
My Room Size is 13 x 22 and opens out with a large 10 foot opening to a dining room which is 10x 12 to the left the total room including the dining area resemles a "T" sideways
So it is a fairly large room.
I like playing my music/Movies really loud

Option 1 (I have put down approx prices)

Wharfedale 9.1 - Fronts - 12k
Bose 201 - Rears - 12k
Wharfedale 10cs - Center - 13k
Subwoofer Wharf or Polk - 25k

Total for a 5.1 setup - 62,000 approx (without cabling costs )

Option 2

Cinema Packages
5.1ch Speakers : for example (credit to fellow member 'saumitra' for prices)
Jamo Home theater A102 HCS5 Home Cinema Systems - 33k (ebay.in )
Jamo Home theater A102 HCS3 + sub210 Home Cinema Systems - 34.6k (HTStore)
Definitive Technology Pro Cinema 60.6 - 49k (HTStore)
Paradigm Cinema CT70 & CT90 - 30k & 37k (HTStore)
Tannoy SFX5.1 and HTS101 (new model in India) - 30k & 37k (HTStore)
Onkyo 4700 (towers, pair) with matching center, sub and surrounds - 40k (Onkyo showroom, MG Road)

etc etc etc etc

Yes the price points are different my budget is 65k I am sure there are cinema packages in that price range as well but does it make more sense to go for one of these ( Option 2 - cineam package ) or should I go for Option 1 components

As mentioned I like to play music/movies at Party levels most of the time, I cant go in for towers because of a major free space constraint because of furniture placement
