Raees and Kaabil are set for a release.
Lets, talk about Raees first.Raees is a Pan-India Film. A Pan-India Film is a kind of film which caters to all sections of audiences. Such kind of films are hardly being made. Last year only 3 Pan-India Films were made- Sultan, M.S.Dhoni The Untold Story, Dangal. Indian Audience loves these kinds of films and lack of these films result in lower footfalls of movies.
Last time SRK did a Pan-India Film was when Chennai Express released. The film not just got record opening it got record lifetime collections as well.
When trailer came out it broke all viewership records. It got the highest likes. People are waiting for this film from a quite long time as film was supposed to come out in Eid first.
The 3 songs of Raees have become chartbusters too as they have got almost 150 Million Views on Youtube.
Now finally coming to Kaabil. As touted by makers its a small film with a big heart. And actually it also looks small film in terms of budget and starcast as well. The trailers were good but the main problem was trailer come out 3 months back, which was not considered good in today’s time as people forget the trailer. Plus no song came out till a lot of time which reduces buzz.
This movie looks more like a Single Screen film. The songs have become hits as well. Second trailer got good response.
Hrithik has no movie coming up after this for atleast 1 year (maybe 2 as Krrish 4 release date is not announced). So he can hope his film does well.
Raees is releasing in 2900 screens and Kaabil is releasing in 2600 screens.
We expect Raees to get an opening day collections of 20 Crores and we expect the 3 day weekend to be 50 Crores, and we expect the 5 day weekend to be 95 Crores. In worst case scenario we expect Raees to collect around 120 Crores.
We expect Kaabil to get an opening day collections of 11 Crores and we expect the 3 day weekend to be 36 Crores, and we expect the 5 day weekend to be 55 Crores. In worst case scenario we expect Kaabil to collect around 75 Crores.
