3 Idiots was released in 2009 and it broke all record in Bollywood Box Office at that time. Its been more than 3 years, but still 3 Idiots lifetime business record is to be broken. Last year Ek Tha Tiger came very close to the mark, but fell short by few crores in the process. Although ETT finally broke the lifetime distributor share of 3 Idiots. Now that is closed chapter.
In 2013 already 3 months have passed, films are struggling to be Hit at the box office. So, is there any realistic chance that any new upcoming film will challenge 3 Idiots lifetime collection? I doubt so. A film to break 3 Idiots has not only to have star power but also to have a outstanding content for the long run.
In 2013 we will see two much awaited movie Krrish 3 (starring Hrithik Roshan, Priyanka Chopra) and Dhoom 3 starring (Aamir Khan, Abhishek Bachchan, Katrina Kaif) both will release in festive period. Both these films are from the biggest franchise and has realistic chance of surpassing 3 Idiots lifetime collection. There is no doubt that both these films will open to record breaking opening at the box office. But whether their content can take it pass 200 crore nett mark is an another big question.
Apart from these movies there are few huge movies such as Mental (starring Salman Khan), Chennai Express (starring Shahrukh Khan, Deepika Padukone), OUATIM 2 (starring Akshay Kumar, Imran Khan, Sonakshi Sinha), Boss (starring Akshay Kumar), Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani (starring Ranbir Kapoor, Deepika Padukone) and Satyagrah (starring Ajay Devgn, Kareena Kapoor, Amitabh Bachchan) lined up this year. But it looks like right now that only a miracle will take these movies past 3 Idiots lifetime business mark. Mental may have a outside chance of creating havoc as it stars Salman Khan who is right now a big domestic box office draw. Apart from this the rest movies if has any chance to stands chance have to have great content in the hand.
Last few months box office is going to rough time. We hope that soon some big film with good content arrives and which creates tsunami at the box office. Otherwise 3 Idiots record is safe this year also. In one hindsight we should be proud of the fact that classic like 3 Idiots record is still to be broken. But on the other thought it is really a shame that no other movie has surpassed 3 Idiots record till now. Which again proves that content is the ultimate king after all. We desperately want a All Time Blockbuster now.
Note: Biggies like Peekay (starring Aamir Khan), Kick (starring Salman Khan), No Entry Mein Entry (starring Salman Khan), Happy New Year (starring Shahrukh Khan), Thuppaki Remake (starring Akshay Kumar), Gutka (Akshay Kumar), Bang Bang (starring Hrithik Roshan, Katrina Kaif) and few others have outside chance but will release only in 2014.
Do let us your thought on this!
