Sushant Singh Rajput and Sara Ali Khan starrer Kedarnath is released today. A love story with a background of flood and natural disaster, the movie has many aspects to be curious about in the movie community. However, the release date of Kedarnath is not exactly a perfect scenario.
Releasing just one week after 2.0, there will be significant competition for Kedarnath from 2.0 as this Sci-Fi film is incredible at the box office. Kedarnath’s trailer was received well but not as much as one would have hoped for. It’s still decent and audience wants to see the debutante Sara Ali Khan and how she does on screen.
The songs of Kedarnath have done better than its trailer. But, the buzz for the film is not great; it’s mild to be honest which will be a worry for its opening day. Sushant Singh Rajput is a seasoned actor and after M. S. Dhoni: The Untold Story, his credibility raised to higher levels. But, his Raabta had tanked at the box office so Kedarnath will need to be strong in romantic as well as visual aspects to attract the crowd in theaters.
With a decent awareness and amidst the storm of 2.0, Kedarnath will be getting around 1500-2000 screens in India. We think, it will collect in the range of 3.5-4 crore on its 1st day. It’s a kind of a film that needs good reviews to get a recommendation and then, a positive word of mouth from the audience on the first day first show. If not, 2.0 will completely take over which will be a worrisome thing for Kedarnath.
Reviews and audience’s verdict is becoming highly important nowadays. To grow over the weekend, Kedarnath will require both of them. It has a good chance to do that actually because if the story if good and effective, Indian audience is seen to give a strong positive response to it.
