Detective Byomkesh Bakshi Box Office Prediction

Yash Raj Films’ Detective Byomkesh Bakshi releases in theatres tomorrow. The film has been promoted fairly well, but the promos and music have failed to create any buzz.

It’s a huge advantage for any film when it gets a holiday release (tomorrow is a national holiday for Good Friday), but Detective Byomkesh Bakshi releases with one of the most keenly-awaited Hollywood films of 2015 – Fast and Furious 7  - which has already got a wide release at theatres today.

Lead actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s films have opened well at the box office – Kai Po Che collected Rs 3.75 crore on Day 1 and Shuddh Desi Romance (SDR), from the same banner, did business of Rs 6.5 crore. However, the music of SDR was popular and the promos worked better too.


We expect Detective Byomkesh Bakshi to collect around Rs 4.5 crore on Day 1 and then rely on word-of-mouth publicity to do well at the box office. The first weekend business will be crucial and the extent of growth on Saturday and Sunday will decide the fate of the film.

The last YRF film to open well at the box office was Gunday early last year. Since then, all their films have taken slow starts. While Bewakoofiyaan, Kill Dil and Daawat-e-Ishq failed to show growth and eventually tanked, Mardaani and Dum Laga Ke Haisha did well because of positive word-of-mouth. Detective Byomkesh Bakshi too will have to be a good film to emerge as a success.

Below is a table with box office predictions of all films released in 2015. It’s part of the #IndicineFBO where we predict the opening day collections of a film based on pre-release buzz and trade expectations.

  • dont know about rest of India but it is set to open well in kolkata as evident by adv booking trend.

    overall film will emerge a superhit

    #Luv U Youngistaan

  • Iam akki fan, gabbar songs will not be good because Zee music co is the worst. I don’t no why they have hired T series is the best just look at Ek peheli leela songs they are fantastic.

  • just watched Fast n Furious7 and i completely bowled by the movie it was an outstanding experience All actors have done great job especially vin diesel he was amazing, actions and stunts are amazing ali fazal has also good role, locations was out of the world especially azerbaijan and abu dhabi scenes.Rip Paul. 5/5.

  • @sambuddha ur jealousy is seeming no bounds. Murder has been trending since 2 days thatswhy article was posted. Nobody gives a damn to tevar,fanny,band baja barat and hence they don’t trend.

    And as for Mr.X, the effort to work on 1 min of its Vfx n 3D is 10 times more than the effort which was required to make craps like tevar.

  • I have decided to post atrocious, extremely negativ,hateful cmnts on every article of youngistan.
    If an idiot moron doesn’t talk good of an extremely ambitious film like MrX and support craps like Tevar, i am going to post extremely bad,negative comments from now on.
    Enough of tolerating such stuff.

    Floppistan, ur big DADDY has came.

  • @element hahaha
    u ppl hv been offensively criticising us for last 2yrs thats y I became a hater

  • dbb will be hit difinately sushant is very good actor back to back 3rd hit for sushant after kai po che shudh desib romance

  • element in newcomers varun ayushmaan is good dis pathetic arjun kapoor is d worst actor .. he cant act ..he cant speek ..he has same tones in every scene ..he has his godfather dats why he gets movie so if u hate him just criticise him ..not all other actors ..he is d first actor whom i have hated after AIB and flop tever

  • Gabbar will open to 15 Cr plus as estimated by Indicine while both Youngistaan movies are 12 and 4.5. HHAHAHHAHAHAHHAHAHAH.

    AND @ARJUNKAPOORFAN, We do not hate Youngistaan because we don’t like their acting or their looks. We hat them because of YOU!!!

  • Element …ur decision is worst. If u don,t want people to hate Emraan Hashmi then don,t do it.Look at People hate Arjun just bcoz of him…do u want the same for Emraan?

  • I think Movie will collect around 5.25 crs.
    But at the same time I Watched Fast & Furious 7. ….amazing movie.
    The chase sequences were treat to watch.
    And fight between vin diesel and john statham was good too.
    And lastly. ..great to watch Paul Walker last time.
    Furious 7. …One last Ride
    My rating : 4.5/5

  • Waiting for your review, trailer didn’t impress me. I’m also not much into topics like Chinese mafia thing.

  • Roy opened to 10 cr and Ranbir’s own film will open to 12 cr? really? who does these stupid predictions? Bombay velvet will take a bigger opening than Gabbar, even though later opens on a holiday.

  • DBB trailer is the best trailer i’ve seen this year so far. Looks like a very well made movie. it should get it due and succeed at the BO.

  • Byomkesh Bakshi Will Do Flop- Average Business Nothing Can Be Higher Than This Coz FF7 Type Biggest Popular Films Is Released

  • @element

    You’re better than that. Don’t fall into the trap of fan-wars. “An eye for an eye, makes the whole world blind.” Some People will spread hate about Emraan, no matter what you do.

    Aare, bollywood stars ko chodo, people talk crap even about immensely respected people like Dr. Kalam, Ratan Tata and many others.

    If Emraan actually inspires you, don’t b’tch about others, because he is himself not known for doing that. Be so good to your haters that they will eventually stop hating him.

    Till then, “tension nahi lene ka! Inn Haters ko get well soon cards do, Mamu!!”

  • This is solely due to people like @Arjun Kapoor Fan who dont know how to respect senior actors and superstars like Salman and Akki !!!!!!!!!
