This weekend will saw the release of Sunny Deol and Bobby Deol Poster Boys, Arjun Rampal’s Daddy and some other small films. There is also a Hollywood horror film IT.
Poster Boys is a comedy film which is an official remake of successful Marathi movie of the same name. But it looks like a b-grade film as the production values are low. Sunny Deol was the biggest superstar in his prime but right now his initial pull will be around 5 crores. But things have changed fast since the release of Bahubali 2 and there will be fewer takers for Poster Boys too. We are expecting the film to open in the range of 3 crores.
Other film is Arjun Rampal’s Daddy which is a gangster drama based on the real life events. Such films do not work anymore and Daddy also seems to be an outdated film. It can open in the range of 1 crores.
Hollywood horror film IT had some limited screenings on Wednesday and Thursday and will have the full fledged release on Friday. The film has received positive reviews and can affect the business of Bollywood films in metros. Meanwhile, it is expected to have a massive opening of about $60 million in North America which will be a record for a September release.
