Ajay Devgn is here with his first film of 2017: Baadshaho. Based on 1975’s emergency situation of India, the movie is an action thriller. It’s a story of a robbery and Ajay Devgn being in an action avatar is a treat for fans.
The trailer and teaser of Baadshaho are positively received as they had ample of action and memorable dialogues which are strengths of Devgn’s films. However, the teaser was released too early and in between the teaser and trailer, the songs which were released, have not garnered much attention.
So far, the buzz for Baadshaho is good but it is not really impressive as Devgn’s films normally have. Ajay’s last release Shivaay had a better interest level to watch than Baadshaho. It all now depends on its story and direction.
Baadshaho brings together the successful trio of Ajay Devgn-Emraan Hashmi-Milan Luthria after the extremely successful ‘Once Upon a Time in Mumbaai’. So, the excitement to watch the movie and the magic of these three on screen is still big.
The fan following of Ajay Devgn in India is enormous and he is one of the biggest stars of Bollywood today. Emraan Hashmi also has a big fan base. The dialogues, the action and a promising story ,all these factors can favorable to Baadshaho. It will have a great appeal in single screens as well as multiplexes.
Baadshaho can take an opening of 9-10 crore. It doesn’t have much competition on 1st September as Shubh Mangal Saavdhan is not a threat to it. Baadshaho’s screen count in India will be around 2500-2800 approximately.
It goes without saying that it will need good reviews and positive word of mouth to sustain over the weekend and during its lifetime run at box office. If audience loves the movie, Baadshaho can be one of the highest grossing films of this year.
Baadshaho also stars Vidyut Jammwal, Ileana D’Cruz, Esha Gupta and Sanjay Mishra. It is directed by Milan Luthria.
Ayushmann Khurrana and Bhumi Pednekar starrer Shubh Mangal Saavdhan is also a good release and has got good number of screens. Baadshaho and SMS have different topics and target audience so there won’t be a clash as such. Shubh Mangal Saavdhan can take up an opening of 2-2.5 crore.
