Bollywood Movie Releases – 8 March 2013

In the last couple of months, two major Bollywood movies have released every single week. Filmmakers are no longer worried about competition from other small budget films.

This week, 4 hindi movies are scheduled to hit theatres on 8th March 2013 – Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster Returns, Saare Jahaan Se Mehnga, Naachle London and Beehad.

Saare Jahaan Se Mehnga - Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster Returns

Saare Jahaan Se Mehnga – Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster Returns

Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster Returns: Is the biggest release of the week. It’s a sequel to one of 2011’s most critically acclaimed films, Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster. This time around, the old cast – comprising of actors like Jimmy Shergill and Mahie Gill – have been retained. New additions to the cast include the brilliant Irrfan Khan and Soha Ali Khan. Directed by Tigmanshu Dhulia, the sequel is expected to be better than the first film.

Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster Returns Box office Prediction: The prequel collected Rs 5.5 cr in it’s first week and finished it’s theatrical run with Rs 7.5 cr net. It was a ‘below average’ grosser. This time around, it certainly looks like the makers are relying on recall value, as Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster Returns hasn’t been promoted too well. Expect a slow start on Friday morning (20-30%), with growth in business over the weekend.

Saare Jahaan Se Mehnga: Is a social/political satire on Mehngai (inflation). The story is about a middle-class North Indian family, that finds it difficult to cope up with the increasing cost of living. The film is produced by the makers of Phas Gaye Re Obama.

Saare Jahaan Se Mehnga Box Office Prediction: Like most films without star value, Saare Jaahan Se Mehnga will rely on word-of-mouth publicity. Opening is expected to be around 10-15%. If the reviews are good, people might come out to watch the film on Saturday and Sunday. Since SJSM has been made on a shoe-string budget, recovery won’t be difficult.



  • Waiting for Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster Returns.. will watch the other movie weekend if the reviews are good.

    Can’t wait for a big release. Khan’s, Hrithik and Ranbir missing in the first half of 2013 :(
