Ranbir Kapoor’s film ‘Shamshera’, directed by Karan Malhotra, will open in theaters on July 22. Made on a budget of Rs 150 million, the eyes of all Bollywood are fixed on this film. The main reason behind this is that except for ‘The Kashmir Files’ and ‘Bhool Bhulaiya 2’, no Bollywood movie has performed better at the box office in the last half. The Hindi film makers yearn for a box office hit that can compete with the South movies. Those film critics express their hope that ‘Shamshera’ has the potential to strengthen Bollywood’s financial standing with a strong box office performance.
‘Shamshera’ will have to break the record of Bollywood movie ‘Bhool Bhulaiya 2’ by competing with Southern blockbuster movies ‘RRR’, ‘KGF Chapter 2’ and ‘Vikram’. If we talk about the box office collection, Ram Charan-Jr NTR’s movie ‘RRR’ has collected 1.1 billion rupees worldwide and Yash’s movie ‘KGF Chapter 2’ has collected 1.2 billion rupees. By comparison, ‘Bhool Bhulaiya 2’ has grossed a worldwide collection of Rs 280 crore. Faced with such a situation, the first challenge before ‘Shamshera’ will be to break this record for Karthik Aryan’s film. But will Ranbir Kapoor’s film be able to do that? Will ‘Shamshera’ do wonders at the box office?
Where does Ranbir Kapoor’s ‘Shamshera’ compare to Kartik Aaryan’s ‘Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2’?
To know the answers to these two questions, first of all, you have to look at the early booking and box office prediction of the movie ‘Shamshera’. Pre-booking for this movie has started from May 16. The film has booked more than Rs 2 crore on the first day. In this, the maximum reservation has been made in the Hindi version of the film.
An advance booking of Rs 2.04 crore has been received from here. There is a reserve of Rs 4 lakh for the Telugu version. The account is not yet open in the Tamil version. As for the pre-booking on the first day, it is estimated that the pre-booking of the film on the opening day may be more than 8 million rupees. Most of it will be only in Hindi version.
In this way, the movie ‘Shamshera’ can collect Rs 10-15 crore on its next day with advance booking. Your weekend collection will increase to a maximum of 50 million rupees. Now let’s talk about Ranbir Kapoor’s movie ‘Bhool Bhulaiya 2’ which had a gross of Rs 14 million that day.
The advance booking for this film on the first day was 6.55 crores. If you look at the pre-order and opening day pickup figures for both movies, then there won’t be much of a difference in your earnings. This simply means that if ‘Shamshera’ breaks ‘Bhool Bhulaiya 2’ record, it will be a big deal. Comparing it with the cinema of the South does not make sense.
One thing to note here is that if there is word of mouth after the release of the movie, then you can increase your earnings by performing better in the days after. As happened with ‘The Kashmir Files’ and ‘Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2’. The opening day box office for both films was much lower, but after the word of mouth publicity of these films, their box office was increasing day by day.
For example, the opening day gross for ‘Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2’ was Rs 14 crores. But the earnings of the second day of this movie was 19 million rupees, the earnings of the third day was 23 million rupees. In this way the film remained in theaters for a long time. Despite the release of new films, she continued to act.
We inform that Aditya Chopra has produced the movie ‘Shamshera’ under the ban of Yash Raj Films. Apart from Ranbir Kapoor and Sanjay Dutt, Vaani Kapoor, Ashutosh Rana, Ronit Roy and Saurabh Shukla also have important roles in this. The film is directed by Karan Malhotra who previously directed movies like ‘Agneepath’ (2012) and ‘Brothers’ (2015).
The story of this movie is set in Kaza, Ghulam India. At that time the oppression of the British was at its height. The Hindustani tribes were under attack. The British used to torture the people of the tribe. He first enslaved a person who lived in the clan, but the slave himself later became the head of the clan. After this he became a warrior to protect the clan. The film is based on the same warrior.
