Anees Bazmee has been one of the most successful directors in Bollywood when it comes to the comedy genre. Films like No Entry, Welcome, and Ready were hugely successful at the box office. Now, the director returns again with another comedy film, Mubarakan.

The question is, will Mubarakan be greeted as enthusiastically by the viewers as the title of the film suggests…..not quite!

The promos of a film are the biggest indicator of how a film will perform at the box office, with the audience. Unfortunately, the two theatrical trailers of this film have been lackluster. The film looks terrible and outdated, looking a lot like another flop film from Anil-Anees from 2010, No Problem. It’s a shame really, given how entertaining their 2005 flick No Entry was.

Anil Kapoor impresses little with his comedy, while Arjun Kapoor looks dull at times. Some of the lyrics of the songs are atrocious too, such as the constant “boyfriend bana le” part in the Hawa Hawa song.

Really, I don’t even know what more I can add!

Mubarakan will take a poor opening due to the lacklustre promos. The music of the film hasn’t really seemed to pick up either. Arjun Kapoor films usually take a decent opening, but those films had popular heroines, which is not the case this time. His last film, Half Girlfriend, opened at 9.27 crore nett, with contributing factors such as Shraddha Kapoor’s presence (huge factor), Mohit Suri as a director, Chetan Bhagat novel, and popular music. Mubarakan doesn’t have any of those factors, so I expect it to open at around “half” (the irony) of Half Girlfriend’s opening. As a matter of fact, just how Munna Michael last week opened slightly higher than Tiger-Sabbir’s first film together from 2014 Heropanti (6.62 crore nett compared to 6.51 crore nett), I expect Mubarakan to open just slightly above No Problem from 2010. The lifetime collections will be similar too, or maybe even below No Problem! (which collected approx. 28.48 crore nett).

From the first day itself, the negative public word-of-mouth will come into effect and the collections will start to decline. Besides, the film only has one week to perform until Shah Rukh Khan’s Jab Harry Met Sejal releases.

My Box Office Predictions for Mubarakan:

  • Opening Day: 4.5 crore nett
  • Opening Weekend: 13.5 crore nett
  • Lifetime Collections: 25 crore nett
  • Overall Box Office Verdict: Flop

Mubarakan to the team of this film, and to the Hindi film industry, for yet another big flop!

    TEPK 87 cr Above Average
    Jhms 138 cr Hit
    Baadshaho 108 cr Hit
    Gentleman 53 cr Average

    • mubaraka will cross 50 cross– but i am shocked with munna michal bo performance —
      Hope Srk JHMS give bollywood industry some relief –min—180+ crores should crosss–
      Akshay will come in shelter by saying TEPK bughet is only —30 crores– it has 1 or 2 holidays — so it may cross 70 crores — many sites were say its a clean hit —

      • Vishal bro I saw munna Michael soon as nawazuddin ki entry hui aur woh 5-6 pelwanoon ko maar raha tha I thought ye gai behns paani mein the only films I’m looking forward to in this middle quarter are JHMS ,TEPK and BAADSHAHO I hope these films create tsunami at the box office as after bb2(which was tollywood) movies have been dipping left right centre with the exception of small films like hindi medium and lipstick under my burka.

      • Hahahaha poor vishal thinks that JHMS will cross 180cr . 100cr k laale pade hue hai aur is nalayak ki soch dekho .
        Mai SRK ko hate hai krta par yeh vishal poora pagal hai . TEPK ko 70cr kehta hai . @vishal u need a mental checkup.
        Hahaha poor vishal.

        • I m a die hard SRK fan . But I hate fans like Vishal . I don’t like insulting others for praising our star. Akshay Kumar is one of the best actors in our industry .
          Nd Vishal is saying bad about him. Shame on u Vishal . If budget of his movies is less so what is the problem. This means that he is playing safe .
          Hope JHMS nd TEPK both do well.
          But vishal pitty on u . U think so dirty.

  3. @Bobby sidhu when will u give predictions for TEPK nd JHMS . Hope U write good for both. Eagerly waiting . He congratulation for ur good work Bobby .
    Please reply. Humble request.

  4. This Week be another dull week for Bollywood, but next week JHMS will give Bollywood it’s highest opening day(minimum 25cr).

      • Abe Vishal sapne dekhne band kr de. JHMS ka buzz itna nahi hai ki vo 25cr opening aur 180cr lifetime kr sake .
        Opening max 17cr aur lifetime 125cr hoga. Tu sapne na dekh kyuki jab tera yeh sapna tutega to tu bardasht nahi k paaega. Waise bhi 11 Aug ko TEPK k release k baad tune apna sir fodna hai .

      • I want that both TEPK nd JHMS collect well at box office . But one should be realistic. @Vishal u are a fool u think too much . Both TEPK nd JHMS will be good movies. But vishal is always insulting TEPK nd overhyping JHMS .
        Shame on u Vishal.
        Acc to me :- both movies will collect in same lines. Best wishes for both.

      • @vishal are u out of ur mind . Soch k predictions daal bhai . JHMS itna nahi kr paaegi. Balki vo to TEPK ko bhi nahi beat kr paaegi. Hahahaha bhoola to nahi ki tune apna sir dewaar par maarna hai . TEPK ne to Blockbuster hona hi hai. Phir tu dekh le ki tune kya krna hai.
        Chahe to tu apne pran bhi tyag skta hai.
        hahahana

      • @vishal humare India mein tujh jaiso ko chutiya kehte hai . Yeh word tujh par set bethta hai. SRK ki Raees ka buzz top level pe tha vo bhi mar k 130cr kar payi.
        JHMS ka buzz raees k saamne half hai. Aur tujhe lgta hai ki vo 180cr kregi.

  5. @bollyarena
    Arreh aisi bakwas movie ka prediction ke liye koi bhi bothered nahi ho.. “Dangal” ka last updated worldwide collections details kaha hai???? Aamir-fans kab se intejar kar rahi hai

  6. In 1990 s it was Sunny Deol followed by Salman
    In 2000s it was SRK for 1st half and Aamir in 2nd Half
    In 2010s it is only Aamir closely followed by Salman

    So from where SRK comes in 1990 or 2010.

  7. dont give it such a bad opening man.. Especially when its a family entertainer. I think coz of its comedy genre it will collect slightly over tiger Shroff’s movie approximately 7- 7.5 cr and then yea the word of mouth will come into effect. We shuld give atleast this much credit to Anees Bazmee’s directorial venture.
    I can bet you its gonna do more than 28 crores atleast.

  8. i think Tepk will collect more than jhms…voz tepk is social messege movie and jhms cheap romantic so tepk is looking promising…tepk lifetime 160 cr and jhms lifetime 150 cr…
