Toilet: Ek Prem Katha is the biggest Bollywood release this week. The film features Akshay Kumar and Bhumi Pednekar in the lead roles. The story of the movie revolves around the lack of toilets in rural areas in India. A wife decides to leave his husband after marrying him because of the same issue. Will the husband succeed in constructing a toilet for his wife? Will her wife forgive his husband and return back to him? Watch what happens in theatres. However, here is how we think the film will fare in terms of Box Office numbers.
Toilet: Ek Prem Katha: 7/10
The buzz surrounding the film was high since the release of the trailer of the movie. With the word Toilet present in the discussion, people were inclined towards thinking that it is going to be an interesting movie. Akshay Kumar was another reason for the increase in the buzz surrounding the release of the film.
Bollywood is going through a rough phase since the release of Bahubali 2: The Conclusion. Even the likes of Salman Khan and Shah Rukh Khan have failed to save Bollywood in such times and here we turn towards another superstar who is one of the hardest working actors in India, Akshay Kumar.
Many factors such as the promos, message, superstar, etc. favor the film. We have a superstar in the name of Akshay Kumar in the film who is giving back to back hits to Bollywood since the past two years. The Swacch Bharat Abhiyan is going to play a big role in getting tax exemption in many states for the film. Previously, Shah Rukh Khan’s Jab Harry Met Sejal was seen as a threat for Toilet: Ek Prem Katha. However, with the debacle of Jab Harry Met Sejal, Toilet: Ek Prem Katha has no competition at the Indian box office whatsoever.
The director of the film has no experience of directing big films. Despite the message which the film carries, the movie can turn out to be a bad one. Moreover, Akshay Kumar has failed to attract audiences in the opening period of the movie that could affect the film as well. Considering all the factors, here is the box office prediction of the movie:
Toilet: Ek Prem Katha Box Office Prediction
- WOM: Good
Lifetime- 100 crores plus
- WOM: Average
Lifetime- 80 crores plus
- WOM: Bad
Lifetime- 60 crores plus
The Akshay Kumar starrer is most probably going to bring in 12 crores* on its first day at the Indian box office.
