Two Hindi films are scheduled to release this week – Amitabh Bachchan returns as ‘Sarkar’ in the third film in the series and Parineeti Chopra makes a comeback in ‘Meri Pyaari Bindu’.
It’s a difficult week to make predictions because the ‘Bahubali 2’ storm is likely to sweep both films aside this weekend and unless the word-of-mouth is extraordinary, both will struggle for a decent lifetime.
Picking one film over the other is also proving to be quite difficult because the advance is non-existent and ‘Bahubali 2’ will be running on way more shows than the newer films.
We expect ‘Sarkar 3’ to collect around 3 crore and ‘Meri Pyaari Bindu’ to collect 2.7 crore. If ‘Meri Pyaari Bindu’ turns out to be a good film, its collections could improve as the day progresses and the film could beat ‘Sarkar 3’.
Without ‘Bahubali 2’, both films combined would’ve probably collected around 9 crore, but here we have a magnum-opus that could collect twice more than both films combined in its 3rd weekend!
