Dishoom Box Office Prediction

Sajid Nadiadwala’s Dishoom is the second biggest release of the month and the film releases at a time when the 3-week old ‘Sultan’ is nearing the end of its run.

The Rohit Dhawan directed film will be the 7th film of Varun Dhawan’s career and the success of the film will be very important for him as well as his brother. In an industry where the success ratio is less than 5%, every film featuring Varun in the lead has been successful at the box offie. It’s a terrific record to have, but the pressure and expectations will be immense. To his credit, the actor has left no stone unturned in promoting the film. He has given it his all in the last one month or so.

Factors in favour of Dishoom on Day 1

  • Varun Dhawan: All his films have opened well at the box office and Dishoom should be no different. It’ll his presence that’ll bring audience to theatres on the opening day. He commands a good following with the urban youth, which should help in ensuring good occupancy evening-onwards on Friday.
  • Action Entertainer: Dishoom looks like a timepass action entertainer, that has the potential to do well both at cities and smaller towns. The title ‘Dishoom’ could also attract the masses.
  • Almost all films produced by Sajid Nadiadwala have done well in recent times. He has two successful films this year – Housefull 3 and Baaghi.
  • The marketing campaign has been relentless and pretty effective too towards the end.

Factors against Dishoom on Day 1

  • The all-important theatrical trailer wasn’t liked, which immediately put the entire campaign on the back foot. The remaining song and dialogue promos have been a mixed bag. While Sau Tarah Ke worked, Jaaneman Aah simply hasn’t created the kind of impact that it was expected to. We quite liked the scenes involving John and Varun in the dialogue promos. If scenes involving them click, the film could be a big hit.
  • The fate of almost all films depends on word-of-mouth these days and Dishoom will be no different. Rohit Dhawan’s first film ‘Desi Boyz’ did not work. For Dishoom to work, his direction will be key.

IndicineFBO: We expect Dishoom to collect Rs 9.8 crore on its opening day at the box office.

  • Reviews from UAE are mixed.
    My predictions :-
    Day 1 – 9.75 crs
    Weekend – 33 crs
    Week 1 – 49 crs
    Lifetime – 78 crs.
    Verdict – Above Average.

  • My prediction is 10.5…..Mohenjodaro 13.4 seriously? will take 16 to 17 crores opening even in the worst case but current scenerio says it is around 17 crore right now….nd content would decide in long run …clash would not effect so much in long run only weekend collection may be effected …screen around 3000 is good…

  • around 11 cr. i think this movie has a youth appeal trailer dissapoints but t.v promos did their work
    sau tarah ke song works big time.. especially when played in the background of action scenes

    Toh dishoom is an awesome song people will love it i think it will be shown at the end
    and it not only had varun but john & jaquiline too
    and chemestiry b/w varun & john is also looking good it is looking like an timepass entertainer with some good action scenes
    and the release date is perfect so i think it will be a hit & lifetime will be around 80-85 crores

  • Mark my word Flaying Jatt will not collect more than 5cr on day 1 .Happy bhaag jayegi might open 5 to 6 cr due to Anand L Rai .Dhishoom will 6 to 7 cr it will fall badly on face .

    Unfortunately Youngsters are choosing bad scripts where biggies like Akshay and Salman now choosing really challenging scripts at their this phase of career

  • Sultan’s 4th week collecion=one fourth of Dishoom’s first week….That is the kind of Stardom Salman possess today

  • now waiting for mohenjo daro 2nd trailer they should release it atleast 8-9 days before release bcoz it takes time to reach a large no. of people and hope it will be as impacting like(or better) bajirao mastani
    mjd team had done well after trailer specially action promo
    finger crossed now
    nothing about ur prediction @indicine for me, its low and i think u takes into consideration social media negativity thats why u r predicting low just hoping u turn out to be wrong

  • Desi Boyz deserved better…!!!
    It was a good time pass entertainer
    Me and my friends really liked it .. songs were very popular esp subah hone Na de and it’s title track …!!!

  • John in an action movie is also a positive factor.

    M tera hero opening was 5 And baldpur 7 so don’t overhype him…!
    ‘his presence will bring audience’ Ghanta

    he just have decent fan Base that too mostly in girls.

  • @indicine have you forgot even John Abraham is there in the movie, give him some credit… you never mentioned him in the factors for the film as if he doesn’t have any fan following among the ppl, plz give him some credit, it’s his film too, don’t be biased.

  • why yrf not given enough screen to sultan i have checked the booking n sultan booking is very good for tomorrow but shows reduced sultan deserved more screens hate yrf

  • Dishoom looked like a sure-shot 100 cr grosser when it was announced, but its bad trailer killed the buzz. Sadly, this one is going to struggle…
