Today we will witness the release of four significant films – Kajol starrer Helicopter Ela, Govinda and Varun Sharma starrer FryDay, horror flick Tumbbad and Bhatt’s produced Jalebi. Let us see which film will take best opening at the box office.
Pradeep Sarkar returns after the success of Rani Mukherjee starrer Mardani to a warm comedy drama, based on single mother story. Kajol leads the pack who still has good fan following. As per our analysis, Helicopter Eela should open with Rs 2-3 crores and will completely depend upon word-of-mouth reviews.
Varun Sharma has made his name from the Fukrey series but he still needs to establish his credibility beyond this. Govinda, on other hand, is looking for a desperate hit. Though the trailer of FryDay was unimpressive, the songs are good and the chemistry between Govinda and Varun Sharma looks nice. As per our study, FryDay might open around Rs 1-2 crores.
The horror flick Tumbbad had an amazing and visually appealing trailer. The early buzz has been positive and the curiosity to watch the film is good. This might turn out to be the surprise of the week and can open some where between Rs 50 lakhs – Rs 1 crore.
Produced under Mahesh Bhatt and Vishesh Films, Jalebi is a romantic drama starring Rhea Chakrabarty and Varun Mitra. While the trailer was eye-catching but due to slates of film releasing today, Jalebi might be crushed and might open to Rs 25-50 lakhs.
