Can Ek Villain be 2014’s first blockbuster?

Q. Can Ek Villain be 2014’s first blockbuster? It seems to have everything going for it from exciting promos to chartbuster music to perfect release date (releasing on the same weekend as Bhaag Milkha Bhaag released last year) – Sambuddha Mukherjee a.k.a Arjun Kapoor in the comments section.

A. Its always difficult to predict if a film can go on to be a ‘blockbuster’ because that depends on the content of the film and word-of-mouth that it carries post-release. But like you mentioned, the promos have worked big time, music has topped the charts and Mohit Suri is directing his first film after ‘Aashiqui 2’.

The release date isn’t exactly ‘perfect’ because there is a heavy flow of releases in the next few weeks. The response to Humshakals and Bobby Jasoos could also decide how big a grosser Ek Villain goes on to be (assuming it carries above average to good reports). If Humshakals turns out to be as entertaining as Sajid Khan’s Housefull 2 or Bobby Jasoos gets good reviews.. both films will have an impact on Ek Villain’s business.

  • @indicine Can’t say but Jai Ho is the highest grossing movie of this year. It collected Rs. 116 cr nett. at the box office

  • hskd will be bigger than ek villain . Sid-varun
    compete with each other by making gud
    films such as mth and soty. While khans and
    hr will make remakes such as kick,bang
    bang and hny.

  • ek villain might collect at box office. But i think mohit suri has made even better film called awarapan. Awarapan will remain the best work of mohit suri. And the concept of ek villain of serial killer. We have already seen in mohit suri film murder2 . There r similarities in murder2 and villain .

  • Highest Grossing movie of the Year Will Be HOLIDAY……Until HNY,KICK,BANG BANG and P.K…….Singham 2,Bombay Velvet and Its Entertainmemt have potential to be huge Money spinners…….Bobby jasoos,Humpty Sharma,Ek Villain,Phantom,Humshakals need to gain a Solid WOM to Shine at the BO……Initials will be good though….Buh movie should sustain….And for that WOM should be Positive…..!!

  • @virat kohli hahah… Now you have learnt manipulating collections from roshan kid and pappa. Jai ho collected 110 cr at boi. Hahaa… Darr lag raha hai kya ???? Hny will be maximum average . Will collect around jai ho. Varun dhawan has done variety of films in his career. He played lover of alia in soty,lover of illiana in mth and now lover of alia in hskd.

  • Blockbuster or not cant say ri8 nw? But opening day and weekend will be huge and will surprise evry1,, der is tremendous excitement for the movie in da Market,. More dan Bobby Jasoos, Humshakals and HSKD

  • Thank u very much indicine for answering such an important question.I request u to pay slightly more attention to films starring future superstars bcz they are climbing up the ladder at a fast pace.

  • Ek villain is inspired from korean classic insaw the devil which was a great film in itself.sid vs ritesh scenes will b d highlight of d film.

  • @hrehaan hskd is looking boring. No xcitement for me though. Same old kjo rom com. Trailor was also crap . This guy @varun-sid is hell bent at promoting hskd at every page. Crap dhawan fan.

  • If bang bang earns 180cr+ and bcms a blockbuster like k3 but kick earns less than 150cr and bcms just a hit then hrithik will tie up with sallu at third spot.d rankings will then bcm 1.aamir 2.srk 3.hrithik,sallu

  • If humshakal flops like himmatwala and bullet raja but ek bcms a big hit like ram leela and 2 states then saif will slip from 9th spot to 11th and sid will jump from 15th to 12th

  • Gunday was the first hit of 2014 then 2 states qween ragini main tera hero yaariyan holiday rock also now ek villain will rock soon

  • Very good chance of it to be a super hit. If wom is excellent then it may be first blockbuster of 2014.
