Box Office Predictions for Poster Boys

Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

Another week, another film. Yeah, that’s the most enthusiasm I can carry for this one!

Poster boys. Sunny Deol. Bobby Deol. A joke about Sunny Deol being Dharmendra’s son? Check. A joke about Sunny Deol causing all sorts of carnage and destroying everyone? Check. A remake of an old Sunny Deol song for no rhyme or reason, with no relation to the film itself? Check.

That is Poster Boys in a nutshell!

I watched Toilet-Ek Prem Katha in a theatre about a week ago. The trailer of Poster Boys was played before the film, and the response was saddening, to say the least. We were all sitting there silent for a trailer which was supposed to be filled with “comedy.” Frankly, everything about this movie feels third-class, be it the production values, the remake of the “Kudiyan Shehar Diyan” song, or the old jokes.

Box Office Predictions for Poster Boys

Despite the different concept of the film (the three leads finding themselves on a vasectomy poster) and being a remake of Marathi success Poshter Boyz (2014) which Shreyas himself acted in, Shreyas himself will be the problem this time…as the director. Actors becoming directors has rarely worked out well in the past at the box office, with examples being Ajay Devgn who failed with U Me Aur Hum and Shivaay, and Sunny Deol himself who failed with Dillagi and Ghayal Once Again.

Also, with the poor production values and outdated jokes, Poster Boys looks like a film that should’ve released six years ago, the same period when Yamla Pagla Deewana released. The public WOM (Word of Mouth) for Poster Boys will be mixed-to-negative.

My Box Office Predictions for Poster Boys:

  • Opening Day: 3.5 crore nett
  • Opening Weekend: 11 crore nett
  • Lifetime Collections: 19 crore nett
  • Overall Box Office Verdict: Flop

      I want this movie to work! Because everything looks appealing about this movie, bobby deol will win the show I think, his comedy will be too good! You can see it in the song kudiya sher diya! Awesome 👏

      Prediction: 35-45cr

      If WOM is extremely positive like SMS then 55cr – 70cr can be achieved!

      Overseas maybe 2-3cr if even that!

  1. Another Wrong prediction.
    1st day can be arround 5 cr
    Weekend 20
    Lifetime 40-50 HIT

  2. @bobby sidhu aaj aap galat ho . Yeh movie super hit hogi. It has something new to offer.
    75cr hoga shayad . Au yeh koi senseless comedy nahi hai. These type of movies are loved by a larg section of audience. Acc to me wom would be positive :-
    O Day – 7-8cr
    Lifetime – 65-75cr

  3. First time in weeks I completely agree with you. Nothing looks exciting about this film and sadly the Deols are not bankable stars anymore…

  4. Like I said before when I watched this film’s trailer it was in my top 5 Bollywood movies to watch this year I don’t care I’m definitely going to watch this film.

    • Yeh movie babumusahay bandukbaaz ki trah super hit hogi . Budget hoga 5 crore se kam or kamayegi approx 30 crore . Already superhit hai dear

  5. I mean that guy is the most pessimists writter, he said a lot crape about Badshao and he was totally wrong and now, Poster boys…..

    I really hope this movie works as the trailer looks good and we like the Deols

      I was not wrong about Baadshaho. Using BOI’s figures, lifetime will be in the 60 crore range, whereas I predicted 52 crores. Verdict will be Average/Flop. Check your facts please.

  6. this is the first time i agree with bobby sidhu.. the movie looks in a pretty bad shape in the trailer itself. i doubt that the movie will get even 3.5cr.

    Learning from the opening day cases of A Gentleman, Barielly ki Barfi and Shubh Mangal Savadhan the opening shuld be aroud 2cr. and then every thing will depend on the word of mouth.

  7. Love Bollywood Reply

    At least seems like movie has some concept/story. Old school bollywood comedy. JHMS, Jagga Jasoos, etc big starrer movies were beautiful looking films with no matter.

  8. Although I totally don’t find logic in Bobby’s Prediction,but this movie is looking dull. But Still 5 Crore opening is expected and at least a lifetym total of 30 Crores.
