What trade thinks of Bang Bang, Happy New Year and PK.

So, today we will bring out this controversial topic which will be the Highest Grosser of 2014 or for that matter Highest Grosser of all time. Be it in trade circle, film fraternity, social media or debating between star fans. No one has given an official statement on prediction figure if you ask any film celebrity or for that matter trade as big money is riding and good vibe among peers. But unofficially there is a lot. We managed to gather some feedback from various people and without naming anyone try to put our part.

Before coming to point, first like to mention about Kick which verdict is out. Kick lifetime collection is heading for 232-233 crore nett mark and it is huge Blockbuster at box office. Definitely it is discussed as it currently holds the Highest grosser of the year title for the moment. Honestly it will need some getting from other films this year to surpass it. Trade predicted around 240-250 crore nett lifetime mark for Kick and actual numbers varied from 5-7% which is very much acceptable. Last year the same source predicted Dhoom 3 lifetime collection to be about 250 crore nett and film did an actual business of 280+ with variation of 12%, which is significant, but good part is, variation is on positive side.

Now coming to point, honestly now everyone knows three films which will challenge for Highest Grosser of the Year and those are Bang Bang (Hrithik Roshan, Katrina Kaif), Happy New Year (Shah Rukh Khan, Deepika Padukone, Abhishek Bachchan) and PK (Aamir Khan, Anushka Sharma, Sushant Singh Rajput). Singham Returns is about to finish its lifetime collection in around 145 crore nett mark and was one of the dark horse of the year till released. There are two another Dark Horses in Action Jackson and The Shaukeens, but chances are almost negligible even to challenge Kick now by them.

First, Bang Bang. It has two Hottest Star of Bollywood in Hrithik and Katrina. Film is an official remake of Knight and Day. Film might be releasing on most peaceful day of the year, but expect total violence at box office for sure on 2nd October and after that. 
Positives - Star Cast. Good Release Date. Excellent Teaser Trailer which took the buzz all time high.
Negatives - Mixed response to Tu Meri first song out. Director Siddharth Anand is not in big league like for e.g, Rajkumar Hirani or Aditya Chopra or Karan Johar or rest few.

Chances - Yes, film has definite chance to cross Kick at box office as got good release date. One of the main problem is Haider (Shahid Kapoor, Shraddha Kapoor) which is also releasing alongside and it will definitely eat into its business at least in first week. Let's see how much though.

Second, Happy New Year. It has two of the rocking stars of last year Blockbuster success Shah Rukh Khan and Deepika Padukone from Chennai Express. Plus, Abhishek Bachchan is also joining the fun with them. Farah Khan is directing and she has great earlier track record with SRK in Main Hoon Naa and Om Shanti Om. Film is releasing in Diwali Holiday and all records are in danger.
Positives - Star Cast. Good Release Date. Grand Scale. Chart buster songs. Track record of SRK and Farah Khan with MHN and OSO. Full on Entertainer.
Negatives - Theatrical Trailer is good, but 'wow' factor is missing. Farah Khan's last debacle in Tees Maar Khan.

Chances - Yes, film has definite chance to beat Kick at box office or for that matter Bang Bang if it becomes Highest by then. Film has got one of the best release date and is certain to take thunderous start. Only issue is the content and direction of Farah Khan. If that is decent to good, then sky is the limit.

Third and Final, PK. It stars the 'Ace' Aamir Khan and directed by Rajkumar Hirani. Anything else needed to be mentioned. Also, film stars Anushka Sharma and she does have a good fan following now. Makers of 3 Idiots coming together again and this time planning is much bigger than earlier outing. Film will release Pre-Christmas and all records by then again will be in danger.
Positives - Star Cast. Good Release Period. Aamir and Raju combo. Content is expected to be entertaining with message. 
Negatives - First look received extremely by audiences. Few might have apprehension watching it first day first show with family and hence, content is extremely important.

Chances - Film only two posters are out till now and despite that buzz is high mainly because of controversial first look. Aamir Khan and Raju Hirani both have deadly track record in recent years. Few optimist in trade expect it to be first film ever to touch whopping 300 crore.

So, what trade expects from these three above mentioned films (we have considered average predicted numbers) -

1. PK - 250-300 crore nett.
2. Happy New Year and Bang Bang - 200-250 crore nett.

That means if we consider the average feedback received from whatever resources we have then PK is almost certain to be the Highest Grosser of the year surpassing Kick. As for Happy New Year and Bang Bang it will be touch and go with realistic chances of overhauling Kick. As race to finish line begins, exciting days are ahead now.

  1. HNY will have a record opening and should cross kick as long as film isnt bad. CE did 228cr last year with 6 open days and HNY is coming after a year with 2 open weeks and by same team of OSO & MHN so expectations are of 250cr+.

    I think few may be underestimating hny because of farahs last film TMK but that has nothing to do with HNY as TMK was written by shirish n rejected by SRK. HNY should be on the same lines as MHN and OSO.

  2. Bang Bang is clashing with haider so 200cr is tough.

    What PK does depends on the content.

    HNY doing less than Kick will be seen as an underperformance.

  3. One negative point about P.K the release date of P.K is also booked for Welcome Back the sequel of Akki Sir Blockbuster Welcome, so P.K will problem to earn 200 cr also.

    This year will be Bang Bang

  4. HNY & Bang Bang trailers have mix reviews. Too early to say. But definitely won't beat Kick's life time collection. About PK, after trailer released.

  5. Predictions don't follow any science but it's perception where ,fans always predict better result for their fav stars...not favouring any one,wat i think is:
    Bang Bang: is not a family entertainer, i dont think comedy will be there...as everyone say market has expanded ,it can touch 200 cr ,but i m not sure above that...first song is not catchy other than two beautiful stars in it...

    Happy new year: trailer is out and biggest positive is music..songs look good in trailer...Movie looks big...Content will decide still 200+ cr is definite...

    P.K: Other than 2 posters nothing is out for PK...raju hirani can surprise as well as AAmir khan..must wait till the trailers comes out...Though Aamirs bhojpuri is not a positive for film ,as i think...

  6. Do anything. But No chance for SRK, AMIR & HRITHIK this year. Come what may, KICK will be highest grosser of 2014.

  7. HNY Great opening Creadits for Diwali Dhamaaka, n also 2 weeks free run. so my prediction is definitly 300+ Blockbuster status. Bang Bang 185/87 ..... Big movie PK 247 cr.

  12. If BANG BANG release with HAIDER and PK release with WELCOM so their screen size will reduce as well as their collections will come low therefor PK and BANG BANG won't be all time highest grosser and if HNY release 14 days flat so it has chances to be all time highest grosser and if not than D3 will remain ALL TIME HIGHEST GROSSER.mark my words

    1. Riaz,

      Will add one point. Clash matters for opening records. Remember Gadar clashed with Lagaan, but went onto break all time box office records. Yes, agree clash hampers the opening, but if content is liked no body can stop it.

    2. U r right bro but I still think let's see what happens next take care

      Delete
    3. @Riaz

      Bang Bang has a good luck because Shahid Kapoor have naturally a bad luck of his movies so there are many chances for Bang Bang that it will collect more than 200 crores.

      This is will be bang, mark my words

      Satyagarha and Once Upon a time in mumbai was not challenging movies that was dull movies in a competition against C.E, C.E was big budget movie and specially release on EID Day, if i was in C.E then movie was declared a Blockbuster just because of of HOLIDAY ur superstar S.R.K is only a Holidays Star but actors like Ajay and Akshay are non holiday Star example Singham Returns 140 cr+ in a non holiday and have only week second was a huge Blockbuster Rowday Rathore non holiday release 137cr, ur SRK movies Ra-one in DIWALI 119 Cr a huge budget movie dustbin haha.. Don-2 Christmas 120cr enough haha.... accept it that except Holidays like EID DIWALI and CHRISTMAS ur SRK is nothing.
      and about Satyagarha and OUATIMD so both movies was not release with C.E,
      C.E 8 August, OUATIMD 15 August & Satyagarha 22nd August,

  14. Hny promo is worst ever. Seriously I'm aghast to see there r so many ppl who want to see hny..wht was so exciting from the promo..as mentioned above there was no wow factor, kick content was poor but it's trailer was fantastic, similarly bang bang trailer is awesome..PK has created buzz wid posters..this time SRK will be hampered by farah khan

    1. The biggest positive with HNY other than SRK is it's music...songs in the trailer are catchy and it will boost the movie...PK created buzz with first poster but don't think tats positive buzz entirely,2nd poster was not able to create much buzz as discussed by trade also...

Welcm back ka content acha hoga Tbhi collections km hongi pk ki.... Aur waise bhi chahe content acha bhi ho welcome ki tarah ni Chlne wali.... Usmein akki tha aur Ismein John abraham.. Zameen aasmaan ka farak hai..... Aur jahan tk hny ki baat hai 200cr to Aaram se honge....Pk aur hny mein hi takkar hai ki kaun bnegi saal ki biggest blockbuster... Welcm back pe Bahut kuch depend krta hai... AgR Welcm back bhi saath release hoti hai aur achi niklti hai fir hny ko koi ni rok skta... Blkl chart buster album hogi... Content ka kuch ni skte... Farah Khan director hai to mein jyada umeed nahi kr ra... AgR content acha hua bachane to fir kuch bhi ho skta hai...

    1. Dear Akshat Goel
      OUATIMD flop hi deserve karti thi kyu Akki ko woh roll kabbi suit hi nahi karta agar wahi roll emran hashmi sequel mai karta toh movie 150 cr tak chali jaati jo fare hai woh hai but truly say entertainment movie OUATIMD se laakh gunnah achi movie thi agar 2 badi movies ke bech mai naa phasti toh hit ho jaati aur 2 states and ek villain ki baat kar rahe ho toh sunno In new stars ki movies se zyada expectation nahi hoti 100 cr enough hota superhit hone ke but Akki sir ki movies se expectation 170 cr minimum hota hai superhit hone ke liye and Ajay ki movie 130 cr superhit hone ke liye.
      OUATIMD 2 1 badi movie ke baad release hui thi uske baad Satyagarha movie thi jis ke naa toh itne promotions the aur naa hi koi bada budget, Entertainment movie KICK and SINGHAM 2 do biggie movies ke bech mai phassi thi isliye only 80 cr bhi bhttttt hain 2 biggie movies ke bech mai release kar ke, kam se kam Akki 1 year mai 3 ya 4 movies release rakhna ka power toh rakhta hai dosre EID DIWALI and CHRISTMAS wale stars ki tarah 1 year mai 1 movie toh nahi deta, Akki is best.
      Waiting for Baby, Gabbar, Singh Is Bling and Brothers also expected about controversial Dhoom-4 between Akki and Sallu

  25. Bhaisaab movie budget ke hisaab se hit superhit hoti hai naaki stars ke hisaab se.... Kya baat kr re ho bhai.... Ye kisne keh dis tumse ki akshay ko 150cr chahiye aur Ajay ko 130cr....hahahahaha....tumhare hisaab se to fir akshay ki ek bhi hit nu hui Aajtk... Rr hai 135cr max uski.... Bhai special 26 70cr mein bhi semi hit kyun ho jaati hai fir Jb 150cr chahiye akki ki movie ko.... Akshay ki opening isliye achi ni hoti kyunki woh ek achi movie ke baad 2-3 ghatiya movies deta hai... Isi wajah se uski jo achi movie hoti hai uski bhi dhamakedar opening nahi hoti.... Word of mouth pe chlti hai movie.... Bhai maana ki tum akki ke hardcore fan ho but fir bhi bhai knowledge abhi bhi thodi si km hai.... Bhai Ranjeet Singh ki Ram leela 115 cr khaati hai aur sirf hit ka status milta hai usse... Tumhare hisaab se to woh naya star hai fir to Ram leela Blockbuster honi chahiye thi... Bhai budget ke hisaab ke movie hit superhit hoti hai naaki stars ke hisaab se... Kya yr tum bhi... Kuch bhi bolna hai bssss

  28. Firstly toh yeh ke mai kisi choote se state se belong nahi karta jo Internet MB pe use karu yew poor guy i have unlimited GB for internet,
    Second tum 2016 ke baat kar rahe ho bhtttt door hai abbi isi year ki baat kar raha hun mai tumse mark my words Happy New Year Kick ka record bhi nahi achieve kar sakti i know ke 2 weeks hai SRK ke paas but impossible ke KICK ka record bhi cross kare, aur rahi baat Ranbir Saif and Akshay ki toh they are hundred times better than ur HOLIDAY star SRK because they gave their Superhits and Blockbuster in a Non- Holiday
    e.g
    Yeh Jawani hai deewani The Blockbuster Released Month of May 2013, 180 crore, SRK ki ra-one ne DIWALI pe itna business nahi kiya tha.
    Rowdy Rathore The Blockbuster Released Month of June 2012, 137 crore, SRK ki Don-2 ne Christmas pe bhi itna business nahi kiya tha.
    Singham Returns Superhit, Released Month of August 2014, 140 crore, SRK ki Jab Tak Hai Jaan ne DIWALI pe bhi itna business nahi kiya tha.
    aur han bhaai ek baat aur 2015 2016 forget for SRK
    2015 ki EID pe Salman bhai ki BJRANGI BHAAIJAN and 2015 ki hi DIWALI pe PREM RATAN DHAN PAYO 2 biggie ek hi year mai release ho rahi hain,
    and 2016 EID is also book for Salman bhai's much awaited movie SULTAN from Yash Raj Productions. so there is no chance for an old man who trying being an actor hahaha....

  34. Again the opening of Bang Bang and HNY might be sky high, but will certainly falls during the week. Peekay totally depends on the script it posses. If the word of mouth is decent as 3 idiots, its gonna hit theater with big bucks. My prediction. Peekay will win this year, if it doesn't Kick will sustain it postions.
