We are already into second half of February and still the year 2015 is searching for its first clean Hit at box office. Baby has emerged as the biggest plus film of the year (Semi HIT), although few distributors have reported loses from it. Roy started big but faltered big time in weekdays and looks like will fail to be a HIT now. So, now all eyes on Badlapur this Friday starring young gun Varun Dhawan. Film also stars Huma Qureshi, Yami Gautam and Nawazuddin Siddiqui in pivotal roles.
Varun Dhawan has made a smashing debut in Bollywood with all his three previous films 'Student of the year,' 'Main Tera Hero,' and 'Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania' becoming HIT/Super HIT at box office. Can't remember in a long time who has taken such great start in his career in Bollywood in a long time.
However all is not well for Badlapur also. Film is devoid of any chartbuster music which attracts audiences to theaters in opening weekend. Buzz of the film is just average till date. However good part is film is getting wide release as there is no alternative. Plus Roy has faltered big time and hence, advantage is going to Badlapur now.
We will explain in detail the budget and screen release count of Badlapur in separate post. But film is made on limited cost of 25-26 crore and investment recovery should not be much of a problem.
