Here comes another Filmy Friday on the edge and unlike every week, this one is quite special as two good films are releasing together. Sidharth Malhotra and Katrina Kaif starrer Baar Baar Dekho and Nawazuddin Siddiqui’s Freaky Ali. Let’s find out, who has the brighter chance to win the box office battle.
For the very first time, two big productions houses are coming together. Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions and Farhan Akhtar led Excel Entertainment have collaborated for romantic-drama Baar Baar Dekho.
As this is one of biggest releases of the year, it will get around 2500 screens across the country and another 500 to 600 screens for the overseas audiences. The entire budget of Baar Baar Baar Dekho is around Rs 44 crores which include Rs 34 crores in the cost of production plus Rs 10 crores have been incurred on marketing and promotions.
The ideal atmosphere for the film has been already created by the Baar Baar Dekho team with the help of some intensive promotions in the major cities. Katrina and Sidharth are pairing up for the first time, so people are eagerly waiting to watch the couple.
The music and soundtracks of Baar Baar Dekho have already gone viral among the fans. Especially, the club number Kala Chasma has received a magical response from the people.
So, all is set and it is ready to deliver on this Friday. If we talk about the first day collections, Baar Baar Dekho is surely eyeing on a double figure start and if all goes well, it will get an opening of around Rs 10 -11 crore on Friday as per the buzz.
If it will get this mark on the first day, then with the positive word of mouth, the opening weekend of Baar Baar Dekho would surely result out some outstanding numbers.
On the other hand, with low buzz and from the back gate entry, Sohail Khan directorial sports-drama Freaky Ali is also releasing Tomorrow. Nawazuddin Siddiqui, who is currently reckoned as the finest actor of Bollywood is playing the character of a poor guy who transforms his dreams of becoming a top class golfer.
Despite a low budget film, the pleasing factor with the film apart from Nawazuddin is that Freaky Ali has been produced by superstar Salman Khan and he has also done lots of promotions of the film. His fans would surely watch the film.
Freaky Ali’s making cost is around Rs 20 crores and it will get past this mark, this would be an achievement for the makers but the completion it will get from Baar Baar Baar Dekho is really very tough. All would depend on upon the preferences of the audience.
