Airlift Box Office Prediction. Hit or Flop?

Airlift is the big Akshay Kumar release this Republic Day Weekend. Film is also clashing with another biggie in Kyaa Kool Hain Hum 3. Coming to Airlift. Film first look and theatrical promos are well received. It garnered positive feedback from all corners be it audiences or critics. However film music has still not hit the roof. And also film with such genre hardly does whopping business at box office. Last year Baby came at same period with nearly same genre who failed to touch 100 crore at box office. 

Coming to Airlift movie Budget. Film is made on a restricted budget of around INR 30-35 crores. Plus, when Publicity and Advertising cost are added up then landing cost is approx INR 42-47 crores. So, film is well budgeted and recovery should not be a main hurdle unless film bombs at box office.

Airlift has recovered a good amount of INR 20 crores from Satellite Rights itself. Plus there will be another 5 crores atleast should be recovered from Music, Home video and others. So, total of 25 crores should be recovered from non-theatrical revenues. Hence, only 20 crore or little bit more than need to be recovered from India and Overseas theatricals.

Coming to Airlift box office predictions -

Release Date - 22nd January, 2016. Republic Day Holiday falls on 1st Tuesday.
Running Time - 2 Hours 5 Minutes.
Censor Certificate - U/A
Expected Screen Count - 2500-2700 screens.

If Reports are Mixed

First Day Collection - 9-10 crore nett region expected.
First Weekend Collection (3 days) - 30-35 crore nett region expected.
First Week - 60 crore nett region expected.
Lifetime Collection - 80-90 crore nett region expected.

If Reports are Good to Excellent

First Day Collection - 10+ crore nett region expected.
First Weekend Collection (3 days) - 35+ crore nett region expected.
First Week - 65+ crore nett region expected.
Lifetime Collection - 110+ crore nett region expected.

If Reports are Poor or Rejected

First Day Collection - 8-10 crore nett region expected.
First Weekend Collection (3 days) - 25-30 crore nett region expected.
First Week - 45-50 crore nett region expected.
Lifetime Collection - 65 crore nett region expected or less.

Film Verdict - Film is set to be profitable for makers as is made on controlled budget and needs only a decent run in box office. Recovery should not be an issue. Coming to film verdict. It will be clean Hit when film crosses 75-80 crore nett mark. 

Flop - 55 crore nett or below.
Average (Below Avg/Avg/Above Avg/Semi Hit) - 55-75 crore nett region.
Hit - 80 crore nett or above.
Super Hit - 110-120 crore nett or above.
Blockbuster - 160-170 crore nett or above.

We think film should do business in the region of 90-100 crore and will be a Hit at box office.

  1. It will go past 120 cr and if content is good it will collect 140+

  2. I agree with your predictions. I know why you only predict 90 -100 its because of akshay kumar's last 2-3 movies. but I feel it would be go higher than your predictions.
    coz last year baby didn't do much at box office. but after there are many people who are saying that baby deserve much better than what it collects. so this time that people will come to watch this movie in a huge number those who don't have seen baby.
    so I think it will be able to cross 125 crore even Airlift can also cross 150 ( I hope ).

    as I am a die hard fan of akshay kumar so I want that Airlift can cross 300, 400 or 500 crore.
    but I feel truley this time airlift will be a superhit. or may be blockbuster.

  3. Sure it will be hit because akshay kumar bring for us another masterpiece like baby like year

  12. Somebody ban this idiot kamalesh, he's not an srk fan, he's mental fan. Shame on you.

    Enjoying shameless movies like kkhh3 over patriotic and hopefully great content vala movie like Airlift. I say every Indian should watch airlift if you know what's the story behind Airlift.

    Nonssense people like Kamalesh are the reason why SRK has got so many haters.

    I am an SRK fan btw, but I support good content films as well.

  13. waiting for this one. will be a clean hit at worst case

  14. It will be Superhit Like Baby, Holiday, Special 26 All these films have repeat value. AKshay is not in 100 cr club game. KKHH3 will obviously be floop. JAI HO

  15. now , public samjh rahe hai, akki s performance is more more better than khans, kitna business kiya oh matter nehi hai, agar oh matter hota to aj padmabhusan aur padmashri honey sing ko mil jata rafisab ko nehi, kiuki ajkal lungi dance kehi business hai, lekin dost oh to ate jate rahenge , khilari sabki dil me rahenge, khano ki tarha nehi, diwali a rahe hai , idd a rahe hai, krishmas aa rahe hai tohi film relese karenge, nehi toh unka dum nikal jayenge, friends sher kisi chiz ki wait nehi karte , jab chahe aten hai aur bawal macha deta hai, akki paji eisa sir hai jis ki koi occetion jarurat nehi parti
