IndicineFBO Update: Toilet, A Gentleman, Baadshaho

The industry has had very little to recover from multiple shocks when the biggest of them all – ‘Jab Harry Met Sejal’ – came and has almost gone away in less than a week. The film started at 15 crore on Friday, well below expectations from a Shah Rukh Khan starrer – but has already come down to less than 3 crore business, 5 days after its theatrical release.

Only ‘Mubarakan’ has survived in the last couple of months and it was probably the only ‘desi entertainer’ that we’ve had in recent times.

The outright rejection of ‘Jab Harry Met Sejal’ has shaken the industry which now looks to one of the more promising films in recent times – Toilet Ek Prem Katha. If nothing else, it has Akshay Kumar who has been in top form recently. The perception around him has changed in the last two years, the multiplex audience now expect good films out of him. The trailer received a decent response too and the film has received political support.

The success of ‘Toilet Ek Prem Katha’ is what the industry desperately needs to build hope for future films. But if the Akshay Kumar film fails, we’d have to wait for another two months before the next big film ‘Judwaa 2’ arrives in theatres.

In between we have films like ‘A Gentleman’ and ‘Baadshaho’. The Sidharth Malhotra starrer has action and youth appeal, which should help the film take a decent opening at multiplexes. The trailer of the film received a decent response, but it’s been downhill since. The songs have not worked, they haven’t really shown the action sequences either with the film looking more like a romantic comedy, a genre that the audience seem to dislike today.

‘Baadshaho’ is massy, it should open well at single-screens and mass centres – but it’s impossible in today’s times for a film to perform without the support of multiplexes. High costs and multiplex rejection were the reasons why Ajay Devgn’s last film, Shivaay, failed at the box office. It’s at multiplexes in those top 10-15 cities where ‘Baadshaho’ will face its biggest test.

The remaining films will be content and word-of-mouth dependent. ‘Bareilly Ki Barfi’ and ‘Shubh Mangal Saavdhan’ seem to be the most promising films, while ‘Qaidi Band’ has received the worst response amongst upcoming films, dead on arrival unless content surprises.

  • Baadshaho has all ingredients of a massy film with a bit of everything I think it has the potential to become a success and help the industry from this bad time.

  • 13.20 CR will be a very good start for TEPK . The makers released the trailer too early and the songs have not created a huge impact except Has Mat Pagli . TEPK has a massive chance to show positive growth on Saturday and Sunday . This film should be successful for Akshay . A Gentleman was looking good because the trailer received positive response . The songs have been poor . Baadshaho is looking good on paper . The teaser was brilliant and the trailer has received a terrific response on YouTube . The trailer is entertaining with kickass dialogues and superb action sequences . Baadshaho is looking entertaining which was not the case with Tubelight and JHMS . Shubh Mangal Savdhaan is looking nice . But the problem is it will be badly affected as it will clash with Baadshaho . BKB is looking very good . It should be successful but it has only 1 week before A Gentleman . !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • The only movies which can beat “Raees” are tzh and padmavati(it has to be exceptional).. and if these fail, srk has hgoty even though with low collections.. (this is regarding Bollywood movies and not other industries hence not including bahubali 2)

  • Toilet is exactly where Joker Boys career was heading until this greedy canadian gobbar started doing fake patriotic themed movies…!

  • When audiences ultimately reject this crapfest all exhibitors will look for the nearest to flush their prints of this bakwaas film…

  • After this film flops a toilet will be the only place our Greedy Gobbarrs shameless fans will hide their dirty faces including that loser Fanny Alcoholic…!

  • Dont be surprised to discover that Toilet infact turns out to be a documentary about Joker Boys biggest loser fan aka the Toilet dweller Fanny Alcoholic

  • Junooni Song Qaidi Band featuring Arijit and yashita sharma is just amazing, u have to repost this song @indicine..

  • tepk will take 10-12cr opening..not more than that…mark it..every single bollywood movie will be flop till judwaa2

  • Guys relax,indicine has no hatred towards ajay!! But fact is ajays films never really worked in multiplexes apart from singham n golmaal series.g4 will surely work in multiplexes but not badshao.

  • you always find lowest point against ajay devgn God knws why u do so he is been huge star since 90’s he is always superstar he was superstar since vijay path dilwale and suhag era he is widely one of the famous star of hindi cenema why u do so with him why why why

  • I think @indicine doing great work.
    These prediction are looking realistic. Analysis is also great .
    Expect content wise both TEPK and Badshaho won’t disappoint.
