Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara directed by Zoya Akhtar releases tomorrow and the film has a huge starcast. Hrithik Roshan and Katrina Kaif are two of the most popular actors in the industry and their presence should give the films box office collections a huge boost. Apart from Hrithik and Kat, the film also stars Farhan Akhtar, Abhay Deol and Kalki Koechlin.
Much like Delhi Belly, ZNMD is targeted at the youth and the urban audience. The film is expected to open well in cities and then grow on word-of-mouth.
The opening though might not be spectacular due to several reasons
- There is no ‘big film’ buzz around Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara and the promos haven’t been the talking point either.
- Delhi Belly is still strong in cities and Murder 2 is unlikely to be replaced at single screens. Also, the last part in the Harry Potter series of films is scheduled to hit screens tomorrow (i.e if the producers and multiplex owners can settle their dispute on time). In bigger cities, going by the advance booking, Harry Potter is unfortunately the first choice.
- Next week, Singham is scheduled for release and it should affect the collections of Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara.
While things don’t look too rosy, Zoya Akhtar and the ZNMD team is quietly confident. If the content is good, the competition simply does not matter.
Coming to the point.. below are our prediction for Hrithik Roshan’s first and only release of 2011
Excel Film’s Zindagi na milegi dobara has a huge cast comprising Hrithik Roshan,Katrina Kaif,Farhan Akthar,Abhay Deol etc. The movie has a very urbane feel to it and is expected to do really well in the high end properties but it remains to be seen if the movie can go really mainstream and justify its costs.
