Which Movie Can Break PK Record?
PK released on 19th December 2014 has smashed the box office record set by Dhoom 3. It has collected 310 crore in India and 600 crore worldwide after 19 days of its release. Its life time collection will be around 350 crore.
PK was directed by Raj Kumar Hirani and it features Aamir Khan and Anushka Sharma in the lead role. Thus Aamir has beaten his own record set by Dhoom 3. He started the trend of 100 crore club (Ghajini), 200 crore club (3 Idiots) and now 300 crore club with PK. The record of Ghajini stood for one year and the record of 3 Idiots stood for 4 years until Shah Rukh Khan’s Chenni Express broke it. But Aamir Khan soon smashed its record with Dhoom 3.
Now the real question is that how long the record of PK can sustain and even bigger question is which movie will break PK record.
If we look back and see then we came to know that a mega star can only bring bumper opening to a film but it can only sustain if it has solid content. We have the examples of Ra.One, Dabbang 2, Happy New Year and Bang Bang. The word of mouth for all these movies were mixed. But if the movie is disliked by the audience then we have the result of Besharam and Himmatwala. Opening day of Besharam was 20 crore while its life time collection was around 60 crore.
Word of mouth for 3 Idiots and PK was extremely positive. On the other hand response to Dhoom 3 was average but it collected large because Dhoom is the biggest franchise in Bollywood.
Now we will take a look at the upcoming movies which have the potential of breaking PK record and entering into 300 crore club.
It features Shah Rukh Khan in the lead rule and it will be directed by Maneesh Sharma. The music of the movie will be composed by A.R.Rehman. But still Fan have almost no chance of beating PK record. The main reason for this is the genre and story of the movie. It is the story of a fan of Shah Rukh Khan. The movie will not have universal appeal especially for masses. Though a solid performance from SRK is expected.
Salman Khan came close to break PK record with his Eid release Bajrangi Bhaijaan. Next year he will be will star in Sultan which will release on Eid 2016. It will be based on wrestling produced by Yash Raj Films. The film has a high chance to surpass PK record but it will clash with SRK’s Raees. So with the clash its almost impossible for any of the film to break PK record.
It is a crime action movie which stars Shah Rukh Khan and Mahira Khan. Shah Rukh Khan will play the role of a gangster in the movie. The teaser of Raess has already created huge hype. And if the film has some hit music and a good story then it should break PK record. But once again the clash with Salman Khan’s Sultan will make it impossible to surpass PK.
Mohenjo Daro is an upcoming epic adventure-love story directed by Ashutosh Gowariker. It will star Hrithik Roshan and Pooja Hedge in the lead roles. It is one of the most expensive Bollywood film ever made. The genre and story can be the negative poitns of the film as it may not have universal appeal. Though the presence of Hrithik Roshan will ensure solid opening and after that it will completely rely on word of mouth.
All top 3 highest worldwide grosser (3 Idiots,Dhoom 3,PK) are Aamir starers. He is undoubtedly the biggest super star in Bollywood as far box office numbers are concerned. So there may be chance that only Aamir will break his own record. After release of PK he will star in Dangal which is releasing on Christmas 2016. It is too early to predict about Dangal but the audience trust on the Aamir brand will ensure reocrd breaking collection.
Dhoom 4 :
It is not sure that who will star in Dhoom 4. Both Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan are rumored to play the lead role in Dhoom 4. The opening of Dhoom 4 will be extra ordinary and it will recreate box office history in India. It will have high chances of passing PK life time collection and it may can create a new 400 crore club.
Prem Ratan Dhan Payo
After super success if PK there is a fear that its record will not be broken for next few years just like it happened when record of 3 Idiots was not broken for 4 years. But only time will tell that how long PK record will sustain.
