QnA session has ended now. We tried to answer as many questions as we could.
You can discuss about the answers and write your feedback in the comments. We will see you again next Sunday.
Q. I was asking when will this content driven bullshit will end as if commercial film are a waste?
Ans. Content driven films are also commercial like Kapoor and Sons, Bajrangi Bhaijaan, Bajirao Mastani etc. In this year, only films having solid content like Airlift, Neerja, K&S have emerged hits except Ki and Ka. It was in the past when commercial films like Chennai Express, Kick were also emerging big hits. But things have changed drastically in last one year or so. Now films like Singh Is Bling, Dilwale, Mastizaade are struggling.
Ans. On a personal note I extremely loved Udta Punjab trailer. But overall it will be rated as 7.5/10. Fan was the best trailer of 2016 followed by Airlift.
Ans. Thank you for your feedback. Only with the help of you guys we have come this far. We hope that you will continue to support us.
Ans. Through advertisement. But currently, it is not on our minds as we are still building our setup. Films were our passion and it was more like a dream comes true. We also do other things in our professional life other than blogging.
Ans. Not at all unless Mohenjo Daro turns out to be a really bad film.
Ans. Anyone can have his own opinion. But we have noticed that some of the critics or websites always tend to give 1 or 2 extra star for movies of Khans. They mostly give 4 or 4.5 stars to every big film.
Ans. Rakhi Sawant. Is this a question?
Ans. Films with Imtiaz Ali and Aanand L Rai should be a good choices.
Ans. Kareena was good in Ki and Ka but we guess you have not watched Neerja.
Ans. Anything but HUGE. The brand of Aamir has become so much popular that the audience has a blind faith in the name of Aamir. Besides Dangal, Aamir has not signed any film. There were some reports that he will start working on his next directional film but it is not confirmed
Ans. The first look poster was expected to release on 15th April but it did not happen. Now the trailer is expected to be out in the last week of April or first week of May.
Ans. Less number os screens, higher ticket prices, more mediums of entertainment, piracy etc.
Ans. Ajay Devgn can give a shot to HGOTY with Shivaay. But HGOAT is almost impossible to achieve without the star power of Khans or Hrithik.
Ans. If the film has right content then 100 crores can be achieved as patriotic films are doing pretty well recently.
Ans. Yes that was an opportunity missed. Probably he was wanted to be different from others yet fell in the same category.
Ans. Hrithik and Akshay are good friends but the release date is not in their hands as they are not producing these films.
Ans. Because it had Shahrukh Khan.
Ans. Yes, the clash is very much on. The makers of Rustom have even started marketing to take the advantage.
Ans. We made an app when we were working on new version. But unfortunately, it was not up to the mark so we have not launched it yet.
Ans. It should collect in between Airlift and Jai Ho.
Ans. 170 Crores.
Ans. Considering the scale it should be around 130-150 crores.
Ans. Salman Khan is the biggest crowd puller in India right now.
Ans. Sorry we, are only tracking Fan now. But The Jungle Book should cross 10 crore today considering the recent trend.
Ans. Shahid Kapoor, Saif Ali Khan and Kangana Ranaut’s Rangoon on 30th September.
Ans. There are rumours that it will star SRK or Ranveer Singh. But considering the release date it will not feature SRK as his other film, Aanand L. Rai’s next is also releasing in December 2017. On the other hand Ranveer will also be busy in Rohit Shetty’s next. So we still have to wait for the official announcement.
Ans. With that trend 150 crores is out of reach. It should collect 10 crores on Monday to have any chance.
Ans. Ranbir will start Ayan Mukerji’s film after wrapping up Jagga Jasoos in May. The film is expected to release next year.
Ans. Baaghi and Housefull 3.
Ans. Probably next month. As for now the post production work is going on in full swing and the team is not focusing on marketing yet.
Ans. Sultan teaser has received good response from audience. As far as opening is concerned, it will be tough for any film to match the opening of Ekk Tha Tiger which at that time opened to 90-95% occupancy. Now the screen count has been increased further. Though the film can challenge highest opening day if it releases on Eid day and had some chartbuster music.
Ans. Fan had limited appeal, no music and was competing against The Jungle Book. The film was completely relying on SRK’s star power. So the film collected 19.50 crore on its opening day which is a good number. It is the second biggest non-holiday opener behind only Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani.
Even in the past, SRK’s films have always opened huge but failed to maintain the pace after that. So definitely his fan following has not decreased much but it is the content that has not worked in his favour in the past. Though now he badly needs a film that has universal appeal and caters to each section of audience.
Ans. We have told you last week that the clash is averted. Here is the report (Raees postponed, Sultan to enjoy solo release)
Ans. In June.
Ans. Raees can release on 30th September so that it can take the advantage of Gandhi Jayanti holiday. Other two rumoured release dates, Independence day and Diwali are already flooded with multiple releases.
Ans. Because the film has received mixed to negative response at mass centers. And even in multiplexes it is competing with The Jungle Book which is a universally accepted film in all over India.
