Bheja Fry : What are chances of The dirty picture at box-office?

Q: What are chances of The dirty picture at box-office? Is there any chance, if Vidya Balan will become number one actress after its success?

A: Excellent!! Movie has sure shot chances of huge opening and overall great collections. To think of, seems like audience is waiting for its release and will hit theater in huge numbers on first day, if content is good, no one can stop it becoming good hit. As far as Vidya Balan is concerned, she is already on roll after playing distinct and unique roles in successful movies like Paa, Ishqiya and No one killed Jessica recently. A hit movie benefit everyone, however her chances of becoming number one is highly unlikely, because first she don’t have huge grosser and second unlike Katrina, audience don’t come to see her in normal glam roles. Dirty picture is different case where sensual appeal to her character and hit music will make audience come to theater in bulk on opening day. Ok, A trivia i want to share with you, Vidya was common actress in two movies based on Jessica murder case, Halla Bol and No one killed Jessica. 

Q : Which movie is biggest Hit of 2011 ?

A : As DON-2 is yet to release, which is big contender to challenge biggest grosser of year Bodyguard. By far Ready and Singham are biggest Hit collectively in terms of Gross and ROI. However bodyguard is biggest grosser, but left with minimal profit margins for distributors. Yamla Pagla Deewana follows next with excellent gross and impressive returns on investment. From small movies, Haunted and Murder-2 investors were laughing all the way. Will publish year end report with details very soon.

Q : What is exact box-office status of RA.One ?

A : RA.One is average at box-office. To attain hit status, movie needs to recover all its investment (Distribution price) from theatrical collections (Distribution share) and also need to fetch good profits. In case of RA.One collections are recovered for 60%(5 territories) of distributors and rest(4 territories) are in minor losses. Except Nizam, none of distributors made any profits. Overall this is recovery movie at best.

  1. Welcome back buddy.

    Just a general thought. I remember reading from Komal Nahta, whom I consider the top trade analyst, acknowledged that Bodyguard is the biggest hit of the year. In fact, Business of Cinema, and Taran Adarsh mentioned that it was All-Time Blockbuster, is this true?

    And can we safely say with two Blockbusters in the form of Bodyguard and Ready, Salman Khan is clearly #1 now, overtaking Aamir Khan?

    • Thanks Randy. Yardsticks of verdicts are different for different analysts, Off late Komal Nahta has been mellowed down and started giving very lenient verdicts. In my books, Bodyguard is blockbuster, and that too because of its record breaking opening. But it could not manage to sustain the level in subsequent weeks. More over ROI to distributors was less than Ready. I consider ROI and theatrical performance collectively and to me Ready is bigger blockbuster.

      And dude All time blockbuster is term which is used for really unparalleled success. In last few years, Three Idiots was true ATBB, and you can see that even today when market has expended so much, still not easy job to chase its gross.

      • Oh yeah, that’s very true. It will be a while that a film can surpass Three Idiots collections. Dabangg was an All-Time Blockbuster also, but it couldn’t achieve the collections that 3I did.

        Do you think Don 2 can beat Bodyguard in terms of nett gross wise, and be a bigger hit than Ready and Bodyguard, due to Ra.One poor performance run?

        What are your expectations for Ek Tha Tiger and Dabangg 2?
