Bollywood Sequels in 2013: Year of sequels!

‘Race 2′ has flagged off the sequel campaign. With the film marching towards the 100 crore mark, its success has proved once again that if the content is anything above average, a sequel would score well with the audience. No wonder, with six major sequels to arrive before end of year, Bollywood can well expect to rejoice with quite a few money spinners to add on to the fortunes.

[Note: ‘Murder 3′, ‘Aashiqui 2′ and ‘Ragini MMS 2′ haven’t been included since these are franchise films and don’t have anything common w.r.t. story, cast or director]

Krrish 3 - Dhoom 3

Krrish 3 – Dhoom 3

Saheb Biwi aur Gangster Returns [1st March 2013]

The sequel takes on from where the original left and while the tussle between Sahib (Jimmy Sheirgill) and Biwi (Mahie Gill) remains, it’s the entry of Irrfan Khan that adds on to the spice. Considering the fact that last year Tigmanshu Dhulia and the actor had created magic in ‘Paan Singh Tomar’, expect the lifetime collections of ‘Sahib Biwi aur Gangster’ (10 crores) to be surpassed by the sequel within it’s opening weekend itself.

Shootout at Wadala [May 3rd 2013]

One of the rare prequels to come out of Bollywood, ‘Shootout at Wadala’ arrives in the wake of ‘Shootout at Lokhandwala’ which was a commercial success. Though latter was directed by Approva Lakhia, it had Sanjay Gupta supervising the entire film. This time around, Gupta is making a huge comeback with the film and if the First Look is any indication, he has smashed it in a big way.

Yamla Pagla Deewana 2 [7th June 2013]

On its release two years back, ‘Yamla Pagla Deewana’ had turned out to be a surprise success of the year. On the flip side, none of the three Deols has enjoyed a commercial success in the couple of years gone by which means added push would be required to bring audience into theatres. However, the trio is clearly enjoying each other’s company whenever they are together and the sequel too is now expected to be a mad affair

Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai Again [8th August 2013]

This one is all set to be a major biggie on its arrival. The film has everything going in it’s favour currently. Akshay Kumar is at the peak of his career, Milan Luthria continues to prove his mettle as the director, Ekta Kapoor knows how to get her PR and Marketing machinery on full throttle while the release timing (Eid) is just perfect. Expect a sure shot 100 crore super success here.

Krrish 3 [Diwali 2013]

Hrithik Roshan, yet again, has taken a gamble of staying away from releasing any film for long and has invested all his time and energy into ‘Krrish 3′. While it is pretty much on the cards that the lifetime collections (120 crores) of his biggest grosser till date (Agneepath) could well be crossed in the opening week itself once it arrives on Diwali, it has to be seen that what kind of distance that the film eventually covers as one expects big numbers to be thrown with this one.

Dhoom 3 [Christmas 2013]

Now this is one movie which spells hot at the title stage itself. With Aamir Khan coming together with Katrina Kaif in this Aditya Chopra production, the film is all set to be massive. Product of a much liked franchise, it could well be telling a different story altogether though Abhishek Bachchan and Uday Chopra still tie things together from the commonality factor perspective.

Looking forward to all these movies,specially good storyline movies like Shootout at Wadala,OUATIM2,Saheb Biwi and Gangster returns.
The biggies D3 and K3 will definitely be blockbusters,no doubt.

“Dhoom 3″ is the most awaited movie of 2013 bcoz of name dhoom,yrf banner,aamir khan in negative role and doing stunts on BMW K 1300 R bike,katrina kaif doing action,abishek bachchan and uday chopra catching aamir and jackie shroff as a guest appearance.uday chopra is one odd looking name here but this is his last movie so probably aamir khan will kill him which john and hrithik failed to do in “dhoom” and “dhoom 2″.

Dhoom 3 has big holidays in first and second weekend so its just gonna be hugely advantageous for it. Content should be good with Aamir ‘unofficially supervising’ Victor. It should edge out K3 but ‘3 idiots’ record will only be broken in third weekend so content of D3 and K3 has to be strong. Good luck to both films.

if film accepted by audience
then 25 crs it will collect)
nov 6- wen-16 crs
nov 7 -thu- 15 crs
firs week -160 crs minimum
no new film releasing in second week. so mini 3000 screen k 3 have
2nd fri -- 13 crs
2nd sat -- 17 crs
2nd sun -- 22 crs
2nd mon -- 10crs
2nd tue -- 9 crs

in 3rd week either gori tere pyaar mein or rambo raja will releasing
if imran khan gori tere pyaar mein releasing it will domimate muliplex only
so krrish 3 will dominate single screen
if rambo raja releasing then it will dominate both multiplex and single screen.
if krrish 3 accepted by audience then 250crs it will cross and also chances to cross 300crs

Only witing for OUATIMA; MOVIE WITH GOOD STORline. Shootout at wadaala is also must watch. D3 and k3 will be definately big hits and 200+ cr. But i’m not sure about ouatim2 to cross 200 cr as it is not right genre. But movie will be definately 150+ cr. If it is solo release then 200+ is possible.
