After being postponed a couple of times, Neeraj Pandey’s Aiyaary is finally releasing tomorrow. It is the only Bollywood release this Friday but there are three threats to it at box office and it will be crucial for it to get positive feedback from critics and audience to sustain well.
Aiyaary’s trailer was highly applauded for its unique thrill and it has a typical brilliance of Neeraj Pandey associated with it. A story of army and the spying, mentor and a protege which is looking great. Having a great actor Manoj Bajpayee in lead is more than enough for audience to look forward to the film and it also has heartthrob Sidharth Malhotra so footfalls will be strong.
Neeraj Pandey is a credible director whose films A Wednesday, Special 26, Baby were outstanding and Aiyaary also has the mystery like these ones. All in all, it is a good bet in theaters.
However, Hollywood film Black Panther is also releasing tomorrow and it is one of the biggest films of 2018 so it might give a tough competition to Aiyaary. There is Pad Man and Padmaavat too, the holdover releases, which might eat some share of Aiyaary.
Aiyaary can open with 5-6 crore collections. Thrillers don’t open to massive numbers but they grow over the weekend so it will be true to this movie which will grow if positive reviews start pouring in. Let’s see how Aiyaary fares.
