Boxoffice : Bheja fry
Q : Can Veer become Hit at box-office ?
A : Veer will fetch one of best openings of 2010, but success of movie will depend on overall content. At the moment promos and promotion has generated moderate hype among masses, Chartbuster music is missing. But Veer is most awaited movie among Salman Khan Fans and opening should be better than Wanted (which was average in multiplexes, but this shouldn’t the case with veer).
Q : Can we compare success of Three Idiots with sholay ?
A : Three idiots has done marvelous business as par today’s low standards. Success of three idiots is comparable with Super Hit movies of 70’s and 80’s. Sholay ROI was 3000% which is impossible for any movie to achieve. Three idiots ROI would be 300% at most. Most of super hit movies of 70’s and 80’s like Kranti , Muqaddar Ka sikandar, Roti Kapda aur makaan, Deewar , Amar Akbar Anthony, Suhaag , Dharamveer was 500% + ROI with huge investments as well. Three idiots success is just close to these movies. But if we take into account the market and business scope of this decade, three idiots business is simply remarkable and will be a hard target to achieve for any movie in near future.
Q : Can MNIK break Three Idiots record ?
A : No, even getting close to opening weekend record of 3I is tough call, leave alone excellent trending. But yes, if movie turned out to be excellent, 100+ Crore business is quite possible from domestic market. Promos created just moderate hype among general audience. Terrorism base theme of movie which was plus point of movie during making, turned out to be most negative one near the release. Makers are trying their best to publicize it as love story. But comparison with newyork and kurbaan is inevitable.
Q : Can we safely call Aamir the boxoffice king ?
A : No, He is Box-office Ace. It seem like all current superstars are chasing the new box-office targets set by his movies. If we take into account the unadjusted figures then non aamir blockbusters are distant behind of his last two monster success
Q : When bollybusiness will start publishing box-office reports again?
A : very soon.
