One of the most awaited films of the year, Tubelight is going to release in less than 10 days. However, the initial buzz, hysteria and craze which is associated with most of Salman Khan’s releases is missing here.
The major reason is the average response to the promos of the film. Tubelight teaser was a letdown however the trailer was liked by the trade. Still, the audience has a mixed response to promos. On the top of that, the music also turned out to be just about decent. Tubelight needed a chartbuster song like Baby Ko Base Pasand Hai or Selfie Le Le Re.
So the film is mainly relying on the stardom of Salman Khan for the initial. It is releasing in the pre-Eid period when the major section of Muslims stay away from theatres. Our early expectations were 30.50 crores for the opening day which were reduced to 29 and now to 28.5 cr. Though things can change in coming days.
As far the lifetime is concerned, it has a huge potential. Tubelight is a story of two brothers set in the backdrop of India-China war of 1962. Such films have a big market in India if they can connect emotionally with the audience. Also, Eid will fall on either Monday or Tuesday giving the film an extended weekend. If it manages to click then there will be no stopping for Tubelight.
