Will PK beat Happy New Year opening?

PKQuestion: Will Aamir Khan’s PK be able to beat the opening of Shahrukh Khan’s Happy New Year? – Suniel (Bangalore)

Answer: Highly unlikely. Shahrukh Khan has set the bar way too high for a film like PK to beat. Aamir Khan in an out-an-out action-masala-entertainer like Dhoom 3 would have been a different story. PK will definitely take a earth-shattering opening at multiplex in cities, but it doesn’t have too much going for it at smaller centres.

There are also reports that the makers won’t go for a release as wide as Happy New Year or Dhoom 3, meaning it could have limited single-screen release. Too early to confirm this though, a lot would depend on the response that the music and upcoming promos get.

To add to this, there is another big factor that will go against PK. The film releases on December 19, a working day. Given all the factors, it would be unfair to expect PK to break opening records, that too of a film that released on the day after Diwali.

Lifetime collections could be a completely different story. If PK manages to carry the kind of word-of-mouth that 3 Idiots did, it should go on to be the biggest grosser of all time.

  • PK is a cheap film with nude shots, monkey expressions and retardness. It will not even cross Happy New Year and Kick, forget Dhoom 3.

  • Opening day record of HNY 40crs(Real)/45crs(Manipulated) will safe as PK is non holiday release but may be it will get broken because last year D3 did 36crs on non-holiday.

    Lifetime of Kick & D3 will be get easily broken by as its looking great in containts & it will trade like 3 idiots.
    So top 3 films at the end of 2014 will be
    1.PK
    2.D3
    3.Kick

    Bajarangi Bhaijaan will be first film to touch 50crs mark next year.

    But film which catch the eyes is PRDP…it will release on 12th November 2015…

    And it will get 4 back to back holiday…so it will be the first film to cross 150crs in first weekend
    200crs in first week.

    So if PK fails to reach 300crs then PRDP will get honor of first film 300crs film.

    Note:-All this will happen without manipulation as Salman & Aamir are not relying on manipulation.

  • may be srk is most popular actor in the world his movie will become mega block buster abb but he can’t match the class of Aamir. Aamir don’t do permotion of movie before six months of release. Stars like srk who survives on diwali top actress multi-star cast can’t compet with aamir. Aamir always do different movie aamir is best and pk will be awesome movie.

  • When 3 idiots released, it was look like a multiplex movie frm trailor but it broke records at box office…now single screen audience also accepting such movies…
    So pk wil surely challanges HNY records…depending on future trailors of pk.

  • Just one answer – it can’t.
    I said it before I would say it now also, Don’t expect any record breaking collections from PK. No doubt, Hirani-Amir duo will come up with a strong script and storyline but it won’t be accepted all over as Kick,D3 and now HNY has been accepted.

  • One more thing, HNY opening day collection will be (if at all) challenged by Bajrangi Bhaijaan only. If Bajrangi also fails then this record will sustain for one year or so.
    Even SRK’s own release Fan doesn’t seem to have that much potential and so is PRDP.
    I’m not sure about Amir’s next that whether its a pure masala or something out of box like PK.
