2018 has been phenomenal for Bollywood as audience has given humongous love to it. It can also be said to be the year of content driven movies and they have done so very well with many of them earning more than 100 crore. Now, the final phase of 2018 has started which is often considered as the phase of greatest earning, although things are changing rapidly and for good.
Ranbir Kapoor’s Sanju took charge of box office and shattered almost all the records to become the Highest Grossing Film of 2018 and also, the 3rd Highest Grossing Movie of All Time with 341 crore collections. It is only behind Baahubali 2 and Dangal.
Now, the big question is whether Aamir Khan’s Thugs of Hindostan (ToH) or Rajinikanth-Akshay Kumar’s 2.0 will be able to beat Sanju.
The perfectionist Aamir Khan has always brought the change and revolution in Bollywood with his movies. His last lead film Dangal is the 2nd highest grosser of all time and pretty sure, Thugs of Hindostan is also looking to make its place in Top 10 Highest Grossers of All Time list.
First time in history, two biggies of Indian cinema Aamir Khan and Amitabh Bachchan will be seen together on screen. Aamir has a knack to give amazing and interesting story experiences to audience so it is a given that the buzz for ToH release is going to be epic.
It is safe to assume that it will ride beyond the 350 crore mark as the trailer has received a humongous response. It can even beat Sanju if everything works out in its favor. YRF has emphasized a lot on Tamil and Telugu language release as well which will ensure a blockbuster lifetime total for TOH. All that said, Thugs of Hindostan is a film that can easily challenge Sanju’s lifetime total.
Superstar Rajinikanth and Khiladi Akshay Kumar starrer 2.0 has been postponed for lots of time but its buzz is still intact. 2.0 is one of the costliest and most ambitious projects in the history of Indian cinema; and with the reputation of director Shankar and the previous part Robot (Enthiran), everyone is highly awaiting the movie.
The teaser of 2.0 is now out and it has taken over the internet. It is looking a magnum opus and its vfx is at par with Hollywood.
Rajinikanth is the biggest superstar in the south and Akshay Kumar is one of the most popular Bollywood actors in India. Together, the kind of crowd they are going to bring in theaters is unimaginable. If all works out fine with 2.0, it can even face-off with the All Time Blockbuster (ATBB) Baahubali 2 and who knows, it can even become the new ATBB.
In a nutshell, Thugs of Hindostan and 2.0 are going to be two films which will dominate the box office in November and they will set the box office in motion as well as on fire.
TOH releases on 8th November and 2.0 releases on 29th November, 2018.
