There are only 3 months remaining of 2017 and yet, Bollywood has not seen a single blockbuster. So far, Baahubali 2 is the only grand success but technically, that is a Telugu film dubbed in Hindi. If we leave that, the highest grossing movie of this year is Shah Rukh Khan’s Raees with 139 crore earnings.
We saw some pleasant successes with profitable ventures like Jolly LLB 2, Badrinath Ki Dulhania, Toilet: Ek Prem Katha but films like Tubelight, Jagga Jasoos, Munna Michael and Jab Harry Met Sejal, who were expected to be potential box office shattering films, have been rejected by the audience.
Now, there are 3 movies which can define the fate of Bollywood this year: Golmaal Again, Padmavati and Tiger Zinda Hai. All three movies have many positive things going on for them so if they connect with crowd, they can be the blockbusters we all have been waiting for.
The highly successful comedy franchise of India, Golmaal has constantly amused everyone with its bone tickling stories and punches. The fourth installment Golmaal Again has been the talk of the town ever since its entertaining trailer was released a few days ago.
Ajay Devgn’s massive and loyal fan base, the epic talented cast and Rohit Shetty, the king of entertainment can make Golmaal Again a huge movie at box office. Releasing in Diwali, one of the biggest holiday season of India, GA has a golden chance to go past the 150 crore milestone. Comedy movies are always taken very well by the Indians and Golmaal is an established brand. It is also possible that Golmaal Again can touch the 200 crore mark if it is loved unanimously.
Sanjay Leela Bhansali is a name that boasts of incredible trust and hallmark of quality and artistic cinema. His movie Padmavati is all set to release on 1st December. Just some posters from the movie are released since last week and it is already intensifying its buzz.
The story of Queen Padmavati, her bravery is an interesting topic. Bhansali has proved his cinematic vision and storytelling ability time and again. His previous film Bajirao Mastani shattered box office records with 184 crore collections. With the heartthrobs of nation Deepika Padukone, Shahid Kapoor and Ranveer Singh, the movie is already the most anticipated one of this year.
Padmavati can even become a bigger film than Bajirao Mastani. 200 crore mark should be crossed if the film stays true to its story and grand visuals. After the mammoth success of Baahubali 2, audience is looking forward to periodic films.
Tiger Zinda Hai:
Salman Khan is truly the king of box office. He already has two 300+ crore club movies on his name. His last film Tubelight was rejected by people yet it managed to go past the 100 crore mark. Now, Salman Khan is coming with the film that has all the ingredients which people love to see in a Salman Khan movie: action, romance and entertainment.
Tiger Zinda Hai will be having heavy action so the crowd is going to have the best time to see Salman fighting out with bad guys. There’s also the on screen romance between Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif which will attract enormous footfalls in theaters.
Tiger Zinda Hai is releasing in Christmas. One of the biggest stars of Bollywood in an action avatar and his film releasing on festival time, TZH can even match or surpass Dangal;s collections. It is a sure shot blockbuster.
Bollywood is hoping big time from these 3 films so that it can change its rough patch. As far as the buzz is concerned, Golmaal Again, Padmavati and Tiger Zinda Hai are already dominating.
