6 days left for the premiere of Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt’s film ‘Brahmastra’. Directed by Ayan Mukerji, this film will be released in theaters across the country on September 9. Advance booking for the film has started a week in advance. The initial numbers are going to excite the filmmakers. Famous trade analyst Taran Adarsh has written that news of some relief has finally arrived for the film industry. The data for the movie ‘Brahmastra’ has come out of the multiplex chain. So far 11,558 tickets have been booked on the first day of advance booking. This is a very positive start. So far, early booking has started at select locations only. The contribution of the first day, that is, Friday, is 63 percent of the total ticket sales. After this, 25 per cent of tickets have been booked on Saturday and 12 per cent on Sunday.
The film ‘Brahmastra’ will be released in theaters across the country on September 9.
According to the sacnilk.com website, which provides the most authentic data in the film industry, the pre-booking of the movie ‘Brahmastra’ on the first day has been made at Rs 51 lakh. (This figure is a few hours from the start of the reservation, it will definitely increase over time). With this, 11,558 tickets have been booked so far on the first day. In this, 8219 tickets (3D) worth 38 lakhs, 20 tickets (2D) worth 11.5 thousand and 2392 tickets (IMAX 3D) worth 12.63 lakhs have been booked. Apart from this, seats worth Rs 1.30 crore have been blocked. In this way, the trend that is being seen so far is very positive. The effect of pre-booking within three days of the film’s release will be seen in the film’s total box office receipts. But after this the collection can increase or decrease depending on the performance and publicity in the mouth of the film. In the case of most films, the poor box office has been seen to improve rapidly after the first weekend.
In such a situation, looking at the pre-booking figures, can you estimate that the box office collection of the movie ‘Brahmastra’ is going to be better? Is this movie about to set new earnings records by washing away all the sins of Bollywood? Before knowing the answers to these questions, it is important to understand that any movie can do a good business only when it gets the support of the audience from all over India. Check out the pre-order figures for this movie. His entire collection so far has been made from the Hindi version only. While this movie will be released in Pan India Hindi as well as Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam and Kannada. But your pre-booking has not yet been done in any language except Hindi. Apart from this, let’s take a look at the pre-booking and total box office collection of some great movies released this year.
For example, Kartik Aaryan’s film ‘Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2’ cost Rs 6.55 crore, ‘Lal Singh Chaddha’ Rs 5.52 crore, ‘Jugjug Jio’ Rs 5.39 crore, ‘Emperor Prithviraj’ Rs 4.65 crore , ‘Shamshera’ Rs 4.57 crore. ‘Raksha Bandhan’ had an advance booking of Rs 4.09 crore. In this, except for the movie ‘Bhool Bhulaiyaa’, despite better pre-booking, all the previous movies have been flops at the box office. Of these, ‘Lal Singh Chaddha’ earned Rs 131 crore (budget Rs 180 crore), ‘Jugjug Jio’ earned Rs 84 crore (budget Rs 100 crore), ‘Samrat Prithviraj’ earned Rs 85 crore (budget Rs 250 crore),’ Shamshera’ 60 crores (Rs 150 crores) and ‘Raksha Bandhan’ 65 crores (80 crores) box office collection. From this it can be understood that the total gross of the film cannot be estimated from the advance booking.
There is no doubt that due to better early booking, it has a positive effect on the opening day and opening weekend collections. But after that, box office receipts depend on how the movie is made. How is your content? How much does it affect the audience? If the movie is good, people make it a blockbuster even without promotion. For example, you can see the collection of the film ‘The Kashmir Files’ directed by Vivek Agnihotri. At the time of its release, many people did not even know about this movie. His first day advance booking was just one crore rupees. The film had grossed ₹3.55 crore on opening day. But gradually, due to word of mouth publicity, there was a big jump in the earnings of this film. Made in just Rs 20 crore, this film grossed Rs 350 crore.
Bollywood has high hopes for ‘Brahmastra’. Ayan Mukerji has worked very hard to make this. He has dedicated 10 precious years of his life to the movie. This is why the teaser, trailer, and promo released so far have shown a tremendous glimpse of the film. After seeing it, it is speculated that the film may end Bollywood’s drought at the box office. All efforts are being made for this. The film is being heavily promoted from north to south. Especially in the south, the help of Bahubali SS Rajamouli fame is being taken. He has been named the presenter of the film. So that the people of the South can connect with this film. But early booking figures say there doesn’t seem to be much profit from Rajamouli. There is only one week left for the film’s release. Let’s see if the story survives or if hopes fade.
