The box office is going to be set on fire after 3 days when Akshay Kumar’s Gold and John Abraham’s Satyameva Jayate will be releasing in theaters. There has been a superb hype for both the movies and the Independence Day weekend will help them earn handsome bucks. Moreover, audience has also got two movies to choose from.
Gold and Satyameva Jayate are clashing on the same release date. Now, both the films are looking tremendously buzz-worthy and both have terrific patriotic themes for Independence Day. This is going to be a tough clash as anyone can come on the top, depending on how audience responds to them.
Akshay Kumar is easily one of the top actors of Bollywood today and his consistency has been phenomenal over the years. Gold‘s trailer has been received with a mixed response and its songs too, have not been much loved. Overall, its promotions lacked the power that Akshay Kumar’s films generally have. This may affect its opening.
However, Akshay has a huge fan base and audience will be coming to see a film that tells the story of one of the biggest turnarounds in our sports history. Th credibility of Akshay Kumar will see to it that Gold will attract the large footfalls. Gold will be getting a larger screen share, around 3000 screens. It can mint around 20-22 crore on its opening day. This also means that Gold can be his highest opening day movie. 100 crore is already a possibility for it. If the reviews are good, Gold can also be Akshay Kumar’s Highest Grossing Movie of All Time.
Coming to John Abraham’s Satyameva Jayate (SMJ), which has actually ruled the social media in last 15-20 days. Its trailer is loved by the mass population and being an action flick with a patriotic purpose, the Indian crowd is looking extremely interested in it. Satyameva Jayate’s songs Dilbar and Paniyon Sa have created a humongous buzz, helping the movie getting a big awareness.
John Abraham’s last movie Parmanu has been successful and was highly appreciated so Satyameva Jayate will be benefiting from that. SMJ will taking around 2500 screens in India. Although it has a lesser screen share than Gold, if the movie clicks with audience, it will be unstoppable. Satyameva Jayate can give a tough competition to Gold and can change the game in theaters as audience loves the action genre. Its opening day collection can be in the range of 11-13 crore. It can cross the 100 crore mark easily.
In the end, it’s the audience who is getting two good choices to watch in the Independence Day weekend.
