Can Ra One beat Bodyguard and 3 Idiots?

Our inbox has been bombarded with the same questions – ‘Can Ra One beat Bodyguard’ is the most asked question and a close second is  ’Can Ra One beat 3 Idiots’. Here is what we think.. 

Ra One vs 3 Idiots

  • While 3 Idiots was liked by 9 out of 10 people, Ra One – at best – is being liked by 5 out of 10 people and even that is debatable.
  • The regional versions have crashed and some small but key territories have witnessed drops Friday onwards.
  • At single screens, Ra One opened well but the trending is unlikely to be close to as good as 3 Idiots.

200 crores at the Indian box-office looks highly unlikely. 3 Idiots record is safe, all eyes on Don 2 now.

Ra One vs Bodyguard

  • Bodyguard’s record is well within reach, especially since the Salman Khan starrer had big competition from Mere Brother Ki Dulhan. Ra One has none until Rockstar on 11th October.
  • Bodyguard performed better at single screens, while Ra One is expected to fare better at multiplexes. If Ra One manages to sustain on Monday and then the following weekdays, it has good chances of going past Bodyguard.

  • salman khan best film tere naam, wanted, mujhse shaadi karogi, ready, dabanggg, and bodygaurdd, and many others salman is the box office king

  • srk fans ke liye khuskabri ki no.1 pe ja chuki hai lekin neeche se no.1 is the super flop movie of 2011

  • i am waiting to salman khan againest film , salman bhai koi new film don2 ke sath release karo- tab don 2 bhi flop hogi

  • Now it is clear that Ra.One is not going to come close to the record of 3 Idiots. In my opinion, SRK had a wonderful opportunity to do so, but failed for the following reasons:
    1. SRK failed to understand a very important lesson from 3 Idiots. In order to sustain box office collections beyond the first week, a film must have a good script and strong performances from all the lead actors. A one-man show with a poor script will not sustain the audience interest for 2.5 hours, and consequently, will bomb at the box-office after the hype evaporates through word-of-mouth.
    2. It seems to me that SRK has surrounded himself with sycophants who can only sing his praise and therefore cannot give him correct feedback, so important for a movie’s success. In contrast, Aamir Khan recently responded to negative feedback about some new project of his and asked his director to tone down the emotional content of the TV show. Here is a quote from Times of India:
    “Aamir Khan seems to have taken his Mr Perfectionist tag too seriously. The actor-filmmaker and now television host has decided to rework the pilot for his upcoming television production since his close friends and staff found it a little too emotional.”
    3. A second important lesson that SRK should have understood was from the failure of Blue, which was technically a marvel with fantastic deep-sea scenes. But at least in the Indian context, mere technical excellence will not sustain audience interest if the script is weak, as was the case with Blue.
