Due to the closure of the cinemas after the Corona epidemic, the films had to wait a long time. Since the cinemas are open, the situation is that almost every Friday there are great movies. The first week of July saw a clash between Rocketry: The Nambi Effect and Rashtrakavach Om at the Hindi box office. However, no major Hindi movies will be released on Friday in the second week. But in the third week of this month, on July 15, two films will collide: Rajkummar Rao’s Hit: The First Case and Taapsee Pannu’s Shabaas Mithu.
There is cause for shock in the first and third week of July and for silence in the second week. In fact, on Friday, July 8 of the second week, Thor: Love and Thunder arrives from Marvel Studios, directed by Taika Waititi. Like other previous Marvel Studios movies, Thor: Love and Thunder is also a superhero drama. In which the Asgardian god of the storm, armed with supernatural powers, is once again ready to surprise the public. Marvel superhero movies are loved all over the world. Even in India, the record breaking business of many earlier films is proof of its success.
Not only South but Hollywood is also afraid of Bollywood and there is a reason for that too.
Needless to say, the high-end international content and box office performance keep other producers from risking clashing with Hollywood movies. Just like Bollywood producers avoid releasing their movies to avoid flop against Pan South Indian movies. Like South, Hollywood is also a big headache for Bollywood. No producer has shown the courage to compete with Hollywood. Whereas just a week later, Hit: The First Case and Shabaas Mithu are probably two good Bollywood movies, but instead of clashing with Hollywood, they clash.
No big Bollywood movie is released before Thor: Love and Thunder.
It is enough to prove that Hindi films do not hesitate to compete with each other in content, but they do not know why they die in front of Hollywood or South films. Either Bollywood is dealing with the phobia of lack of its content or after suffering losses in the past in various clashes at the hands of previous Hollywood and southern cinema, there is no guts left to fight. Early last year, before Christmas, Marvel’s Spider-Man: No Way Home, which opened on December 17, did a tremendous business in India.
Ranveer Singh’s 83rd was severely drowned by Spider-Man and Pushpa
Spider-Man: No Way Home had earned over Rs 200 crore. The Bollywood sports period drama “83” also arrived on Christmas. Ranveer Singh’s large-scale film turned out to be a flop. The business of Spider-Man: No Way Home and the business of Allu Arjun’s Pushpa: The Rise are enough to show how 83 backfired against both movies. There are more than a dozen great occasions where films from the great Bollywood superstars, Teesmaar Khan, were seen packing the box office in front of southern and Hollywood films. After Spiderman, Doctor Strange’s business also surprised the business circle and had an impact on Indian movies.
It is said that even a cat burned with milk drinks buttermilk. Bollywood’s condition, facing many challenges, is also like a burnt cat with milk. Anyway, Thor has many screens in India as Spiderman. This movie is on more than 2800 screens. The film has been dubbed into English, as well as Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, and Kannada. Screens are likely to increase on Saturday and Sunday weekdays. Thor is the third major movie to have a mass release in India. Before Thor, Avengers Endgame which arrived in the year 2019 got 2845 screens and in the year 2021 Spiderman: No Way Home got the maximum of 3264 screens. Avengers Endgame also did big business in India.
How long can Bollywood survive by remaining in its lair?
The craze of Marvel movies in India can also be understood from the screens. Now, even if a Hindi movie were to play opposite Thor, he would have to fight to get the screens. It seems that Bollywood can only think of colliding with its content, but may not have the ability to collide with the cinema of the South or Hollywood. But the question is how long can Bollywood survive by staying in its lair like this. This will increase the dominance of all southern and Hollywood movies. As soon as South and Hollywood make movies in one language, they just need to be dubbed. Things are constantly getting out of hand in Bollywood.
