Kick is all set and ready to release on 25th July that is tomorrow and there is huge buzz and expectation among trade and audiences. Film is definitely one of the most awaited flick of the year and is set to take box office by storm. So, what are the records that Kick is chasing right now?
Before coming to records, a important point is to be mentioned that Kick is releasing in Ramadan period and definitely opening is going to be affected at least in few circuits which are Muslim dominated. Plus film has a normal weekend release with no Holiday. Eid falls on Tuesday (5th day) only. These points are important as we know it will be very difficult for 'Kick' to break opening records in Ramadan period and will need a miracle of sort to do that.
Box Office Records that Kick will be Chasing -
1. Opening Day - Dhoom 3 - 36.2 crore nett.
Chances - Very tough and near to impossible for two reasons. First is Ramadan period and second is Friday being a Normal Working Friday.
2. Opening Weekend (3 days only) - Dhoom 3 - 107.55 crore nett.
Chances - Again tough because of Ramadan period. If Content is liked, then there is an outside chance but for that need huge Saturday and Sunday.
3. First Week (7 days only) - Dhoom 3 - 188.6 crore nett.
Chances - Again tough, but if content is liked by audiences then it will definitely challenge that.
4. Biggest Single Day - Dhoom 3 - 38 crore nett.
Chances - Kick will challenge the Biggest Single Day record either on Sunday (3rd Day) or EID National Holiday.
5. All Time Grosser - Dhoom 3 - 282.4 crore nett.
Chances - Only chance for 'Kick' is to challenge the all time grosser is that film is to be liked by audiences immensely and it should do record breaking business in first 14 days.
6. All Time Grosser in Overseas - Dhoom 3 - $ 28 Million (INR 164 crore).
Chances - Very Tough.
7. All Time Worldwide Grosser - Dhoom 3 - 530 crore.
Chances - Very Tough.
We think looking at all the factors, Kick might challenge First Weekend, First Week and Biggest Single Day records at box office. No doubt Salman Khan is a big opener, but Pre-Eid period will definitely affect his chances for First Day Collection. Plus film content is needed to be excellent to challenge all time records of Dhoom 3.
