Baahubali 2 Box Office Prediction

‘Baahubali 2: The Conclusion’ is a once-in-a-lifetime film. The release circumstances are extraordinary and unprecedented. Never before has a film brought together audience from almost every film industry in the country, crossing language barriers and setting the stage for the country’s biggest cinematic moment.

In a country where film industries are almost entirely star-driven, S.S Rajamouli has brought the nation together like B.R Chopra did with the television series Mahabharat – which shattered television records back in the late 1980s when it was aired.

As far as the theatrical release is concerned, almost every factor is in favour of the film. Everyone wants to watch it and most want to watch it on the first day itself – which has led to record advance booking ticket sales, breaking the previous records set by BookMyShow, Multiplex chains and even single-screen theatres.

In fact, a special advertisement space has been created under ‘Baahubali 2’ posters outside several single-screen cinema halls and those spaces are selling for lakhs of rupees.

As far as the first day collections are concerned – ‘Baahubali 2’ is expected to shatter the lifetime records of all dubbed films, barring the first Baahubali film. The highest grossing dubbed south Indian film is Rajnikanth’s Kabali which collected Rs 27 crore in the Hindi markets – that record will be history on Friday.

The Hindi version alone could also challenge the non-holiday opening of the biggest of Hindi films – including Dhoom 3. All versions together, ‘Baahubali 2’ is likely to cross 100 crore net and we could well be looking at a 300 crore weekend from all languages – although a drop could come on Saturday.

Factors that should ensure a record-breaking opening for Baahubali 2:

  • One of the most hyped Indian films of all time.
  • Crosses language barriers, making it the biggest ever Pan-India film.
  • Hiked ticket prices.
  • Widest ever release for an Indian film.
  • Blockbuster on television.
  • Most want to watch the film before the suspense (why Kattappa killed Baahubali) is broken.
  • Baahubali 2 is a big screen experience, which automatically reduces the impact of piracy.

The only factor against the film is the fact that tomorrow is a working day.

IndicineFBO: We are going with Rs 33 crore as the first day collections of the Hindi version of ‘Baahubali 2’.

Side Note: We won’t be reviewing ‘Baahubali 2: The Conclusion’. No review can do justice to the Rajamouli magnum-opus. Those who liked the first film will watch it anyway and the few who didn’t will skip it. Stay tuned for the box office updates.

  • I don’t know why all the websited are promoting bahubali so much on social platforms but in real only a certain portion of audience is interested to watch it and are waiting for review many don’t know that the movie is releasing tomorrow in North India i think 20-25 crore is max on its opening day in north india. And some reports are coming that they in need of coming out with a unique reason of kattapa killing bahubali they have come up with a such silly reason that I can’t believe though i am not gonna tell here as it will be a major spoiler.

  • Very bold yet realistic predictions… Here in Madhya Pradesh every cinema hall and Multiplex is full… My prediction is 40cr opening day even 50cr could possible…

  • Well said indicine: No review can do justice to the Rajamouli magnum-opus. I’m from Nepal and advance booking(actually advance purchase) is in never seen before. Even first rows are not available for all shows on Friday and Saturday. Most of seats are already sold. I want Rajamouli to make MAHABHARAT on sets like bahubali.

  • If this film touches 2000crore gross mark , then it’s sure robot 2.0 will go past 3000 crore.. and I don’t see any Bollywood film touching 1000 crore by the time.. omg

    It’s time to declare shanker and rajamouli as biggest crowd pullers in the country .. and a cut above the rest.

    Rajnikanth ,sallu ,srk , Kamal Hassan , Hrithik , akki , aamir and chiranjeevi completes top 10

  • Most over rated film : – @indicine… this film is not “once in a lifetime” film… unnecessarily u r trying to promote it. Every year I watch a lot of films 100 times better than this cartoonish film, for ex, I will watch GOTG 2, Star Wars 8, Thor 3, SM-Homecoming, etc etc… these r 1000 times better than Cartoon Bahubali. The only good thing is that it is the best film of South (vfx wise). Bollywood has better film in term of action but limited coz of budget and its recoveries. South film has various sources to recover costs plus these r tax free in south…. ETT, Don 2, Dhoom 3, Bang Bang these all have better VFX work than Baahubali but was made on limited budget and action were cut short due to budget which can’t be recovered easily in bollywood due to high taxes and Bollywood doesn’t have reach to the deeper side of South, Bihar and other parts too…

  • What would be real value figures for sholay , hahk and gadar ?

    My guess – ww figures

    Gadar – 1100 crores
    Hahk – 1600 crores
    Sholay – 2300 crores

    Now the battle is on

  • Why not a review Indicine? No matter how big a film may be, its ur duty to provide an unbiased review, thanks for shying away from your duty. Thumbs down Indicine!

  • Unmatchable craze. On a lighter note, this is my sincere request @indicine that if any great personality tries to reveal the suspense(why Katappa killed Baahubali), pls pls pls do not allow those comments. Pls, it’s a humble request.

  • @7:30pm

    You only wrote bad things about south bcoz they refused to cast your floppistan captain Arjuna Fannyless Kapoor as a viable alternative to Shakti Kapoor who still gets to play more n more villainous roles…!

  • It will earn in 1 day from all versions more than what our Galaxy Numero Uno Phankha Salesmans biopic earned in its entire lifetime from last April 2016…!

    Still some deluded lost souls chant nonsense that their Dadaji is biggest superstar in the galaxy…!

  • Even a 35 cr+ looks possible. It can be the 4th highest Bollywood opener ever! Even the 350 cr mark cannot be ruled out for the hindi version. There’s one thing the south industry needs to be appreciated for. While Bollywood is struggling for solo release due to obsession with festivals and national holidays. A once in a lifetime opportunity like Bahubali 2 releases on a working day that too during the IPL period+college students still writing exams.

  • Bahubali n Bahubali…..rest are history…this is magic after sholay in indian film history. History all over India… no words to explain….

  • Our so called bollywood star only searching for festival release, 2 weeks single run and if they have 2-3 holidays in week means all will fight then. See here normal day release, summer time and ipl season still they believe on only product….yahan dangal hai dangal hai aur sultan sultan bolkar public ko bewkoof banate hain also destroy our holiday…
