Roy Hit or Flop: How much does the film need to collect?

Q. Is ROY a Hit or Flop? How much does it need to collect to be the first HIT of 2015? – Rohit

A. ROY has to collect somewhere around Rs 50-55 crore to emerge a clean HIT at the box office. The film lost Rs 4-5 crore of business because of the India vs Pakistan cricket match on Sunday and has to sustain well on Monday to make up for the list business. It will be difficult because the word-of-mouth is mixed to negative. We don’t see it collecting much after Week 1.

Q. Can ROY beat the lifetime collections of BABY? – Shirnil Naidu

A. No chance. ROY could struggle to cross the 50 crore mark if business on Monday falls below the 4 crore mark. While BABY was carrying incredible reports and excellent reviews, ROY has been thrashed by the critics (Read critic review) and the trend over the weekend is much worse. Having said that, T-Series lost money on BABY, but they might just about break-even or make some money with ROY.

Q. ROY opened well because of Ranbir Kapoor or good music? – Sahil

A. It was a combination of Ranbir Kapoor’s first film in 16 months, smart marketing by T-Series and good music that worked well for the film. Jacqueline Fernandez is also a star after the success of ‘Kick’ and her presence must have helped too. A 10 crore opening wasn’t possible without Ranbir, so a major share of the credit should go to him. Amongst actors under the age of 40, Ranbir is easily the most popular Bollywood star in the country and probably the only bankable star too. Even in the worst case scenario, his films will guarantee a good initial.

  • Don’t worry Ranbir fans who are floating too much after Roy’s collections..It was marketed as Ranbir Kapoor starrer and still has collected only 10.40crs..

    Action Jackson with crap trailer and songs made 11crs+
    Entertainment with crap trailer made 11crs+
    Holiday with not so popular music made 11crs+

    Don’t worry Bombay Velvet will also open around same mark..

  • Roy is currently rated 2.8 on IMDB…What’s happening with this valentine weekend?? Last year Gunday entered the prestigious IMDB bottom 100 and now Roy is on its way!

  • Baby collected around 1.75 cr on his 4th weekend – total around 93 cr
    lifetime – 95 cr
    trade lifetime – 80 cr
    clean hit for akki…

  • Somewhere i read sonam kapoor is playing bhai’s grandson and neil playing sonam’s father and lallu’s son.
    Lallu playing a raja role,so raja natwerlal sorry veer 2 comming this diwali.mpkdh 2 is also.
    Eid pr bhikhari kabir bany ga or diwali pe to soraj ka diwala nikly ga.
    Neil bhai lallu ko bchayo.

  • Ranbir is media created star ……… Overhyped…. Overrated …….!!…haha….. But another flop disaster after sawariya… Rocket sinh ….. Anjani anjna… Bachna hasino…Besharam….rockstar …… Roy …..
    His average work is projected as very gud by …….. Hypnotic media ……!! …

    In short Ranbir — Kapoor = 0 …….!
    Agree or agree…

  • roy was just a support role film for rk yet it opened well while supporting role films of other stars like akki(omg,shaukeens),salman(sawariyaa,heroes) ,srk(billu),aamir(dg ) and hrithik(luck by chance) got bad opening

    this proves that ranbir is one of the biggest megastars of our cinema and bv should open hunge(24cr+) despite of a normal weekend release

  • It’s not only Ranbir..The film works due to it’s good music,romance(Valentine’s Day),Jacqueline and promotion staff..
    It will crash on monday..
    Performance-Wise,It’s content not upto the mark and Ranbir’s performance is worst part in it..And Arjun,Jacquline was better..
    So you just can’t say it works because Ranbir..

  • disappoint movie Roy, i watched Roy bcoz of Ranbir but there was no role for Ranbir at least pivotal role.

  • Roy will become a flop, even it can’t cross besharam lifetime collection but its not a ranbir film otherwise Billlu was a srk film although Billu songs were more chatbuster than roy.

  • Roy collected 28.26cr in spite of huge cricket match of ind vs pak. Only Superstar Ranbir Kapoor can survive in this kind of bad situation.

    ROY is not a Ranbir Kapoor’s movie. He plays jst an extended cameo. ROY faced a lot of problems during its release… Non holiday release, exams time, world cup period, clash with MSG, without Ranbir’s promotion, negative reviews, bad WOM and the biggest minus point is Arjun in spite of all these negative things ROY gets bigger opening than Akshay starrer Baby.

    That’s proves Ranbir Kapoor’s STARDOM is damn high.. He proved again and again with his every movie.

  • Indicine you again not answered my question ….
    you said if baby collect 90 -95 cr it will be a hit you are backing from your facts….

  • Roy is debacle …. So many interesting films r now coming ..
    Like nh10 , detective bakshi , mr x 3d , bombay valvet , welcome back , humari adhuri kahani , brothers , airlift , FAN , ROHIT NEXT , RAEES .

    Looking forward to these only.

  • Roy will do 40 cr in first week and 55+ cr lifetime. So guaranteed Hit.
    Ranbir’s negatively reviewed cameo film = Hit
    Akki’s critically acclaimed lead film= Above Average
    So proved that Ranbir is way bigger than 60 cr actor.

  • @rao : ha mein bhI padha tha somewhere that in rohit’s next srk is playing deepika’s PARDADA .. n jus ti let u know dont throw your frustration here coz we all know when salman is on n all big holidays belongs to him fo instance Eid , Diwali n Christmas ..baki Amir sir then kuch leftover then it goes to TEESRA khan

  • some foolish people are again going 50/50 like eunuchs in giving all time superflop status to roy!!

    a movie which i exactly saw for 15 mts and am not bothered when the dvrscr print will arrive

    complete nafrat
