News of Raees postponing from EID 2016 is more or less on cards. We have mentioned this thing many a times when big clash is announced between Raees vs Sultan on EID 2016. We already stated many a times that one of the film will definitely make way for another for multiple obvious reasons. We don't like to discuss that now.
But question is why Raees is planned for 26 January, 2017 when already two big films are confirmed for release on same day? When already Raees is almost ready for release. It is really baffling. Think logically it is still better to come on EID 2016 and clash with Sultan then release on 26 January, 2017 and clash with Kaabil and Baadshaho. It is better to get around 2000 screens in EID then same or lesser screens on next year Republic Day.
Right now buzz of Raees is good. Makers have already released teaser and first look mentioning the release date. Buzz may fade away by the time of release next year. Who knows. Many might feel that film is dated by then as it is already announced in as early as 2015 itself.
We don't see any specific reason of Raees postponing till next year other than that rushes of the film is not totally liked by SRK and team Raees. They might reshoot some portion again. If that is the case then also it is not so good news for makers.
There are lots of date available in 2016 still for release of Raees. Holiday and Partial Holidays are available. We still think that Raees should come in second half of 2016 with or without Holiday. It is always better to have 2 weeks of free run with 3500-4000 screens available then to come in Holiday period and with just screening of 1500-2000 and also having clash with other biggies.
Hope makers are listening to our thought. At least they should listen to the fans of SRK and Raees who are shouting loud and clear to release Raees in some time of 2016. Dear Team Raees, kindly listen to them at least. Thanks.
