Singham Returns Hit or Flop: Box Office Prediction

Singham was not only the most successful and loved film of 2011, but also one of the most entertaining ‘masala’ films of the decade. Due to its tremendous repeat-value and mass-appeal, the film was a huge success on television.

This year, Rohit Shetty, one of the most successful commercial directors in the country, returns to direct the sequel of ‘Singham’ after directing hugely successful films like ‘Bol Bachchan’ and ‘Chennai Express’. Unlike Singham, the sequel is a original script written by Sajid-Farhad, Rohit is credited for the story and Yunus Sajawal for the screenplay.

The expectations are high and so is the hype which should ensure that ‘Singham Returns’ takes a flying start at the box office tomorrow due to its tremendous recall value, holiday release, director Shetty and the presence of Ajay Devgn and Kareena Kapoor.

Singham Returns is releasing on approx 3600+ screens and the advance booking especially at single-screens has been very good. Advance booking at multiplexes is way lower than Kick, but that is the case with almost every film that doesn’t feature the Top 5 actors in the industry.

We expect Singham Returns to collect somewhere between  22-24 crore on its opening day, with Mumbai circuit and surrounding areas fetching the best start. The drop on Saturday and how well it holds on Monday would decide its fate at the box office.

Singham Returns has fetched a good price, so recovery won’t be easy if the word-of-mouth ranges from mixed to negative.

Below is our box office prediction for the film.

IF VERY GOOD (positive word-of-mouth)

  • Day 1 – 24 cr
  • Day 2 – 15 cr
  • Day 3 – 21 cr (Sunday)
  • Weekend – 60 cr
  • First Week – 90 cr
  • Final – 145 cr+ (Super Hit / Blockbuster)

IF AVERAGE (mixed response)

  • Day 1 – 23 cr
  • Day 2 – 14 cr
  • Day 3 – 18 cr (Sunday)
  • Weekend – 55 cr
  • First Week – 80 cr
  • Final – 120 cr (Semi Hit / HIT)

IF BAD (worst case scenario)

  • Day 1 – 22 cr
  • Day 2 – 13 cr
  • Day 3 – 15 cr (Sunday)
  • Weekend – 50 cr
  • First Week – 70 cr
  • Final – less than 85 cr (Flop)

Due to the tremendous recall value of Singham a fantastic start is guaranteed – both the opening day records of Ajay Devgn and Kareena Kapoor are likely to be shattered. What remains to be seen is, if the film will be Ajay Devgn’s highest grosser to date. Because that’s how much it would need to collect for the film to be a decent success at the domestic box office.

  • Top 5 actors??
    3 khans and hrithik. Which is the 5th one. Not Ajay acc to article. So is it Akki or Ranbir?

  • It should collect around 25 crore tomorrow, which is a national holiday, will definitely collect over 20 crore as even Besharam collected over 20 crore on its opening day which was also released in almost same number of screens. It has everything going in its favor, should do close to 25 crore at least.

    I also think it will collect around 120-155 crore in its lifetime run depending upon its WOM, don’t expect it to be a failure.

  • The GRAND overexposure of Crappy New Year today will mean audiences will have a day to get over that OTT jhatka and regain their senses just in time to watch a Shetty film tomorrow…!

    Great strategy of Ajey to get Red Chillies to launch their trailer the day before and not on his films release date…!

  • Congrats to all ajay devgn fans in advance bcz singham is going to open bigger than kick despite 600 lesser screens.

  • If Ek Villain releasing on 2500 screens on a non holiday can collect 16.5crs,Singham returns can definitely collect above 25crs in any case tomorrow…

  • oh no…
    in d storm of King Khan we forgot singham 2…

    Ajay rock is d only ajay devgan fan here, and he hates srk…
    But we srkians wish singham 2 to be an ATBB

  • @Indicine, how many retain screen of Entertainment 2nd week and kick 4th week? I kindly request to you @indicine pls reply.

  • First day collection will be around 22 crore. Ajay’s star power is not matched with The Khans, WOM will decide how much film will collect the lifetime business.

  • i hope it will do 180 crore and pick 2nd spot at the end of year cuz i dont like shahrukh, hritik movies cant touch my heart, pk looks like dehli belli. so sr is my second favourite after kick.

  • Music is a negative factor for this film…

    Kuch toh hua hai is ok song,not as good as the one of KHNH…

    Aata majhi satakli is a big failure,it is so irritating,whenever i hear it i just want to bang my head against the wall..arguably worst honey singh song ever..

  • @RRindieman
    It has to be Ranbir at 5th bcoz of YJHD’s success…followed by Akki and Ajay at 6,7 respectively…

  • singham returns will be blockbuster the movie has huge mass appeal and repeat value too all the best ajay fans from akshay kumar fan
