July 15 is going to be very special as far as Bollywood movies are concerned. On this day, four Hindi movies will be released in theaters simultaneously. The most important thing about this is that all four films are by four self-made actors. This means that the leading actors working in these movies have achieved their place in Bollywood thanks to their hard work and not through any godfathers. On this day, Taapsee Pannu’s film ‘Shabash Mithu’, Rajkumar Rao’s film ‘Hit: The First Case’, famous web series ‘Panchayat’, Jitendra Kumar’s film ‘Jadugar’ and Akshay’s film will premiere. Oberoi ‘Juda Hoke Bhi’. Of these movies, only ‘Magician’ will stream on the Netflix OTT platform. The remaining three films will be released in theaters.
There may be a buzz at the box office between the three movies opening in theaters, ‘Shabash Mithu’, ‘Hit: The First Case’ and ‘Juda Hoke Bhi’. But the toughest contest in this will be between Taapsee Pannu and Rajkumar Rao’s films. The reason is clear, both movie stars belong to the same category. The fan following of both is also almost the same. In such a situation, there will be a problem in choosing the movie in front of the audience. Both films can also affect the business of the other. So far, looking at the reactions that are coming out about these two movies, it looks like the competition between ‘Shabash Mithu’ and ‘Hit: The First Case’ is going to be interesting at the box office.
The competition from Taapsee Pannu and Rajkummar Rao is going to be interesting at the box office.
Taapsee Pannu’s film ‘Shabash Mithu’ is based on the life of Indian women’s cricket team captain Mithali Raj. Apart from Taapsee, Vijay Raj and Bijendra Kala have leading roles in this film. Taapsee plays the character of Mithali Raj. The trailer for this film has had a very good response. Looking at Taapsee’s track record, it can be said that she performs better in her movies than her own. Looking at the earnings of the previous movies of hers, the latest box office released movie Thappad (2020) made a business of Rs 44 crore while the budget of the film was Rs 24 crore. Similarly, the movie ‘Saad Ki Aankh’ earned Rs 30 crore and ‘Badla’ earned Rs 138 crore.
Rajkummar Rao’s ‘Hit: The First Case’ is a crime thriller film by Spence. In it, actor Rajkummar Rao plays the role of a police officer, who while struggling with his past, searches for a missing girl. During this, the events that happen repeatedly scratch his past. Because of this, he gets angry. The emotion is lived after seeing the trailer of the film. This is the reason why it is speculated that the film may attract a large number of viewers. If we look at the trajectory of Rajkummar Rao, the performance of his films over the years has been mediocre. In the last four years, most of his films have been released on the OTT platform.
The budget of the film ‘Shabash Mithu’, directed by Srijit Mukherjee, is around 30 million rupees. This is the most expensive film of Taapsee’s career. But seeing the slow pace of its promotion so far, it doesn’t look like the film will be able to recoup its cost. There are two main reasons for this, the first is that the life of Mithali Raj is so inspiring, to see that the audience should bother going to the cinemas. Promotion for the second film has slowed down. Many people won’t even know when this movie will be released. In such a situation, it is estimated that the opening of the film can be a maximum of one crore rupees. Your total collection can be 15 to 20 million rupees.

Directed by Dr. Shailesh Kolanu, ‘Hit: The First Case’ is a Hindi remake of a Telugu film of the same name. The budget of this film is 20 to 25 million rupees. Looking at the response received by the movie trailer and the fan following of Rajkummar Rao, there is speculation that it may be a hit at the box office by extracting its cost. The opening for this movie can be Rs 2-3 crore which can rise to Rs 5-8 crore on weekends. In this way, the film can become a success in two weeks. His total collection is estimated at 28 to 30 million rupees. By the way, if viewed in the true sense, both movies deserve to be released on the OTT platform.
