Massive Bollywood Riot: This Friday Reality is 10 Films Releasing Altogether

August 22, 2017

After many fails or not so good collection in box-office since last few weeks, filmmakers are playing safe this time with as many as 10 films all on one single Friday of this week.
It will really be tension building and interesting to know what’s going to happen on August 25. Staying alive at the booking counter seems more important than making profits for these projects.
In case of Jammu, where Annabelle Creation is already taking all the attention because of its late release it will be even more difficult for the all these movies to make enough collection. The reasons of Annabelle to make such a huge difference are one English movie that too in a horror as genre have released in Jammu really after so long. With the rush towards cinema halls for this movie, it can be easily said, people of Jammu were waiting since really long for this such movie.
Coming back to this Friday, two big releases will be ‘A Gentleman’ and ‘Babumoshai Bandookbaa. First one starring Sidharth Malhotra and Jacqueline Fernandez, the trailer of the second one has Nawazuddin who is also more than anyone else to create buzz of a movie.
Another is Yash Raj Films’ Qaidi Band which is also the launch of Aadar Jain and Anya Singh in Bollywood. Qaidi Band will be favoured by some distributors . In those particular zones, it will be seen as a direct competition to the first two films. This triangular fight will make it really difficult for any of them to make profits.
mol Gupte’s Sniff will focus on kids and if this film succeeds in receiving a positive word of mouth then it may eat into the box office share of A Gentleman and Qaidi Band. Babumoshai Bandookbaaz looks secure that way as its target audience is quite well defined. Gupta has done well with Stanley ka Dabba and Hawa Hawai, and he can do it again.
Then two Hollywood projects, The Hitman’s Bodyguard starring Ryan Reynolds and Samuel Jackson, and Terminator 3D are also scheduled to hit the theatres. Their release dates in India can change even at the last minute though. But if that doesn’t happen then these films can split a part of the urban-multiplex audiences.
Films like The Rally and Mr Kabaadi are not likely to impact the bigger picture, but they can be dominant in particular areas. For example, Mr Kabaadi has been given some publicity in Delhi-NCR area and there, it can receive decent footfall.
Muskurahatein and Toh Fir Aao Na are not in the race, but they can cause more loss of screens to bigger films which may affect their total collections.
So, brace yourself for a box office stampede.
