The last few months have been extremely poor for Bollywood. Most likely the release of Baahubali 2 has changed the overall perception of Hindi film audience. The upcoming films are not promising either.
Mubarakan: Anil Kapoor and Arjun Kapoor starrer look like an outdated film. The trailer received mixed response and the music is also average, to say the least. There is not much interest among the general audience. A low opening day is on the cards.
Jab Harry Met Sejal: The trailer for SRK starrer was finally released a few days back. It has received a positive response from the trade and audience. However, it is nowhere close to his last release Raees. Also, it looks more like a class oriented film and can struggle in masses. The overall music is good but a traditional chartbuster is missing.
Toilet Ek Prem Katha: The buzz for TEPK has also decreased in last few days. Probably the makers should not have released the trailer that much earlier. The music is mostly situational. The film is being promoted on a large scale but it is not helping much. Look like that another Akshay Kumar will fall short of 15 crores on the opening day.
Baadshaho: The biggest problem for Baadshaho will be its genre. Thriller films have limited takers in India and only a few films have been able to become a big grosser. Though Baadshaho teaser has received a positive response and the film will get a good opening in Maharashtra belt and other mass areas which will ensure a decent opening day.
A few small films have also been added. Bariley Ki Barfi is almost a non-starrer film just like Meri Pyaari Bindu and Behen Hogi Teri. So the opening day will be in the same range but the lifetime can change depending on word of mouth. Haseena Parkar deals with a controversial subject which might create some awareness. A Gentleman is a remake of Hollywood film even though the makers have not revealed it. It can be tricky as most of Hollywood remakes have not fared well at the Indian box office.
