After the earth shattering storm created by Baahubali 2 from 28th April, the last two weeks have been epic for Indian box office. From this Friday, two new movies Sarkar 3 and Meri Pyaari Bindu will be hitting the theaters and grabbing some screens from Baahubali 2.
Ram Gopal Varma’s Sarkar 3 is the 3rd part from the franchise. This series have garnered a huge reputation over the years, especially the first part and Sarkar 3 naturally has a good buzz in audience and they want to see the further political adventures of Subhash Nagre.
Amitabh Bachchan, one of the biggest names in Indian cinema, is playing the role of the powerful political leader and his performance has been critically applauded for the last two parts. Fans are excited to see RGV-Big B’s association again and the gripping storyline is a highlight of the film. RGV has also expanded the cast so that is another advantage. Taking all these factors into consideration, Sarkar 3 can take an opening of around 4-4.5 crore.
Ram Gopal Varma’s movies are not known to make big business and they have a certain niche appeal but with good reviews and word of mouth, Sarkar 3 can hold well at box office.
Another film to release is Ayushmann Khurrana and Parineeti Chopra’s Meri Pyaari Bindu (MPB). Being a romantic film, MPB will be attracting the young crowd and its music has been loved by people so that will be a benefit for it. Being a Yash Raj Films banner, the film has received a good reach on social media and Ayushmann and Parineeti’s fan following among the youth is also good.
Meri Pyaari Bindu’s story is looking different and with its small series of trailers and soft-pleasant music, the film can connect with the audience. It can be a surprise package at box office if everything works in its favor. Having a stiff competition from Sarkar 3 will somewhat cause a concern for Meri Pyaari Bindu.
It is expected to collect around 3-3.5 crore on its opening day and due to the romantic narrative, the collections can see a rise over the weekend if it performs well.
There is still a big factor of Baahubali 2. The buzz for it is still very much alive. If Sarkar 3 and Meri Pyaari Bindu don’t work well, people will once again turn to Baahubali 2 and it will be unstoppable for 3rd straight week.
