Ghayal Once Again Hit or Flop: Business Economics

Sunny Deol returns with his second directorial venture, nearly 17 years after his last film Dillagi (1999). As an actor, he was last seen in the 2015 dud I Love New York.

His latest film faces an uphill task of recovering costs at the box office, as the film has been made on a budget of 32-35 crore and an additional 12 crore has been spent on print and marketing.

Recovery is going to be tough unless the film does extraordinarily well at mass centres. Ghayal Once Again could prove to be a non-starter at the all-important multiplexes, which generates more than 80% of business for majority of films these days.

There have been reports that the satellite rights of Ghayal Once Again has been sold for Rs 20 crore to Colors, but Viacom refused to confirm the figure.

Ghayal Once Again needs to collect around Rs 55 crore to recover costs, upwards of 65 crore to emerge a clean box office hit and 90 crore plus to be a super hit.



  • Films like those should have strict low budget like Azhar biopic which is having controlled budget.

    Ghayal returns took too much time for shooting but Raaz 4 shoot will complete in 1 months flat and will also have chartbuster tracks !…

    Good music is important too.. Ghayal returns does not have that too which will be in Azhar,Raaz4.

  • I had high respect for you but after seeing what you said about srk and yashji in aap ki adaalat I hope ghayal becomes a flop like your previous movies

  • its prequel was best movie of sunny but i don’t think sunny can deliver that kind of performence now so maximum 44 crore lifetime.

  • Hope it will became a grand n grt film like d 1st one.
    Fingers crossed .
    Best of luck sunny sir.
    D biggest action hero of all time

    71 days 2 go #Fan

  • I personally think opening day will be around 5.5 crs.
    Week 1 will be 30 crs
    Lifetime – 40 crs.
    Sad to say but very slim chances are there for Ghayal Once Again to become a successful movie.
    But still hope for the best..

  • It’s tough but if film has good content then it might b possible.. i hope atleast he recover costs..

    No offense but delay in film date proves something is lacking..

    I hope for best don’t wish bad for him

  • Average to semi hit!

    I wish the film does Superhit business!
    Sunny Deol had very good time in the 90s.
    Hope this film gives smile on his face and his fans faces.

    Good luck Sunny Sir

  • This is the same Sunny Deol whose Gaddar is in list of all time block buster top 20 movie.

    But time has change nowadays is only Khan’s movie doing such business.

    But Khan me upar Bhi ek star Bhati he

    And he is Hrithik Roshan

    Yar Karo

    Before a week of release kaho na pyaar he….Amir did Mela h
    Which was biggest disaster and after a week movie Fir Bhi Dil He Hindustani…both were biggest flop.

    And Hrithik become star.

    The same situation happened after 15 years.

    This time both star’s image is not good due to intolerance issues even people banned to Srk shooting in Bhuj Kutch already.

    And during These days Akshay Kunar has give. His all time master cicular movie.

    All the. Best akki

  • I just hope it becomes a hit,few of the reviews that i have read are good,will watch it on sunday.
    Good luck Sunny

  • @Harsh
    What exactly are you really saying??

    Indicine… It’s really a tough task ahead of Sunny. I think it will touch 40-50…but if wom is great…sure hit!

  • Ghayal was such an awesome movie and Sunny Deol rocked in it. Now he is no longer a bankable star. But just for old times sake and my love for Ghayal 1, I would want this movie to be a hit. Even though I know this movie would not be a patch on the original one.

  • Truth be told this film should have been made 20 yrs ago or even 15 yrs ago post Gadars unprecedented success…!

    I just hope it does atleast 30-35cr

  • Respect u sunny sir,im big fan of ur voice,no one can shout like u,hope ghayal return will do the best,v vl get to see old sunny

  • @ANK
    Yeah me2.

    What strike my mind is those action scenes esp when Meenakshi gives sunny d gun to shoot d Villain…

    Also… That indo-lambada.. Sochn
    a kya..
    Aur.. Don’t say no…

    That movie was 1990 but it seemed newer than 1990.. Everything.. Classic movie!

    All d best team GOA..

  • Hahaha what a joke 65 crore to become a hit
    Sunny bobby dharam jee being together they all can not collect the amount of 65 crore
