Changing the name of the movie to ‘Dhaakad’ is not going to keep ‘Dhaak’ at the box office!

From Bollywood’s point of view, this is a crisis of movie stardom. Gone are the days of stars like Shahrukh, Salman and Aamir Khan. All the Bollywood Khans are looking for shelter. Superstars like Amitabh Bachchan, Akshay Kumar and Ajay Devgan are struggling at the box office for a successful movie. Khurrat and nationalist actress like Kangana Ranaut movie ask for water. For the rest, a film like ‘Dhaakad’, despite being full of action, does not fail as much at the box office. The film, which opened in theaters on May 20, earned just Rs 3.88 crore in five days, while the cost of the film is said to be Rs 80 crore.

Thus, Kangana Ranaut’s film ‘Dhaakad’ has turned out to be a box office disaster. The film earned Rs 1.2 crore on the opening day, Rs 1.05 crore on the second day, Rs 98 lakh on the third day, Rs 30 lakh on the fourth day and Rs 25 lakh on the fifth day. If you look at it this way, the movie collection is continually declining. If this continues, it will be pulled from theaters in a day or two. Kangana has been awarded the National Award four times, the highest civilian award in the country has also been awarded to Padma Shri, in such a situation the failure of a film by an actress like her gave many indications. The first is that movies are no longer run in the name of stardom, second, movies become hits because of the content. No matter how nationalistic you are and have been talking about the interests of the country, your film will work only when the content is solid. Third, the character must be strong, not the artist. Now the era of great superstars is over, now the era of good actors is underway.

There is no doubt that Kangana Ranaut has given a tremendous performance in the movie Dhaakad, but…

If it wasn’t, the movie ‘Bhool Bhulaiya 2’ by an actor like Karthik Aryan would not have been able to make more than Rs 75 crore in just five days amid the tsunami of South Cinema. ‘Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2’ and ‘Dhaakad’ were released in theaters on the same day. At the box office, there is a superstar like Kangana Ranaut on one side and an artist like Karthik Aryan on the other. But people have given more importance to the artist than to the superstar. They have collapsed watching the movie ‘Bhool Bhulaiya 2’. This film has made a record on the same day of its release. The film earned Rs 14.11 crore on the first day, Rs 18.34 crore on the second day, Rs 23.51 crore on the third day, Rs 10.75 crore on the fourth day and Rs 10 crore on the fifth day. . In this way, the film has become the fourth highest grossing Hindi film on opening day and weekend. Previously, this record was held by Yash’s movie ‘KGF Chapter 2’, Hollywood movie ‘Doctor Strange 2’ and SS Rajamouli’s movie ‘RRR’. Not only this, but the record of becoming the highest opening film of Karthik Aryan’s career is also the name of this film.

On the opening day before ‘Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2’, Kartik Aaryan’s film ‘Love Aaj Kal’ won 12.40 crore, ‘Pati Patni Aur Woh’ won 9.10 crore, ‘Luka Chuppi’ won 8 .01 crore and ‘Pyaar Ka Punchnama 2’ Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety earned 6.80 crore and ‘Pyaar Ka Punchnama 1’ earned 6.42 crore. On the other hand, speaking of Kangana Ranaut, she hasn’t had a box office success since the movie ‘Tanu Weds Manu Returns’ released in the year 2015. In the last seven years all 8 Kangana movies have been released, of which only ‘Judgmental Hai Kya’, ‘Panga’ and ‘Manikarnika’ have been able to recover their cost. Apart from these, five films have not been able to recover their cost. It has been a box office flop. ‘Dhaakad’ has become a disaster. The condition is that the film released on 2200 screens is removed from the screen.

In such a situation, Bollywood creators should understand that naming a movie ‘Dhaakad’ does not make it a box office hit. For this, it is necessary to have fresh content in the film. It is important to have power in the story. The address must be matchless. The characters need life. The work is not necessary for the names of the artists. The way in which the first OTT platforms and now South Cinema have emerged in recent years, testifies to this. Be it the web series shown on OTT platforms or the South movies that have been doing well in the Hindi box office, all of the above things are common. The creators of Bollywood have not yet understood the same.

These filmmakers still consider the Hindi audience to be fools. They feel that the audience will compulsively consume what they serve. Dhakad has also fallen victim to this illusion. There is no doubt that Kangana Ranaut has acted tremendously in the film, but the makers of the film have made a mistake. Doing it based on formulas. He thought that by filling Hollywood-like action scenes and stunts, the audience would digest the film, but he didn’t know that by giving him pickle, papad or curd, he doesn’t consume food, for that you also need basic roti, rice and vegetables. .
