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.

  • @indicine u r just too biased and it is clearly visible in ur FBO for JHMS and TUBELIGHT. Ur lines sometimes stink much more than what u mean to.
    Ur FBO is going to get into ur bloody ass and TEPK is gonna be a winner and only just for d sake of wellness of distributors and bollywood. Go and put ur money on line next time on bloody SRK and UNWORTHY SALMAN but the GEM for us as the distributors is gonna be AKSHAY KUMAR.
    TEPK will crap ur words and the haters upto the extent that u even wouldn’t have thought off.


  • What I really like about this website is that they are not influenced by what comment section says. I have been the regular visitor for this for 4 years and I have seen people saying non-sense to the writer and analysts. You should understand one thing that it is the job of the people working on this website to give us the best content possible. They will surely have their favorite, but that doesn’t mean the job will be effected. They have been very efficient and proficient with the work, as far as my view is concerned. Being a die-hard salman fan, I was sad with the prediction and buzz for tubelight, but eventually they were right. Good work, keep it up.

  • I’m not sure of A gentleman. But all Baadshao, TEPK, Bareilly Ki Barfi’ and ‘Shubh Mangal Saavdhan looks good to me. I will watch all of them. I will watch A gentleman only if WOM/reviews are good.

  • We need Punjabi or Sikh based movies now in bollywood. Hindi movies based on Hinduism is crap like their religion. Even Indicine will agree with my opinion.

  • I disagree with your prediction for TEPK I think TEPK will collect 16 crore+ on day one because since last year Akshay Kumar movies receiving good to very good response from multiplex audiences so this time again every one will be shock after day one collections pf TEPK

  • Indicine team?

    why are you guys not publishing articles about celebrities promoting Toilet Ek Prem Katha on social media I am watching daily celebrities promoting Toilet Ek Prem Katha but you guys not publish any article about that.

    Celebrities like Hrithik Roshan, Varun Dhawan, Ranveer Singh, Sidharth Malhotra, Alia Bhatt, Karan Johar and many other promoted TEPK on social media for increasing buzz but you guys do not publishing about that its so sad.



  • Indicine always forget how big star was ajaydevgan in ninetees.saharukh ,salman,sunny,govinda and ajay were top stars on ninetees.still he is no sixth overall in fan following.he has better fan following than ranbir kappor in all india level barring metro cities .I think badsaho is the type of film mass waiting for longtime.shivaya done 85 crore on strength of single screen where only ajay is the known face.from there you know the star power of ajay in screen.this film also have emran hasmi and good the way ajay always being a great star you accept or not.
