Trade Buzz: Will Krrish cross Rs 100 crore mark in its opening weekend

With Krrish 3, Rakesh Roshan is taking forward his sci-fi superhero franchise with son Hrithik Roshan in the lead. But will this mega budget film live up to expectations. Will it become the highest grossing film of this year? We find out….

Director Rakesh Roshan’s Koi Mil Gaya and Krrish set the cash registers ringing. Now the successful director is back with Krrish 3, the third installment of his superhero series – this one stars Hrithik Roshan, Priyanka Chopra, Kangna Ranaut and Vivek Oberoi. Krrish 3 has at all – star power, visual effects, new-age villain and great buzz. Surely it can’t get better than this! But will it rule the box office this Diwali? Will Krrish 3 get a thunderous start? Exhibitor-distributor Akshaye Rathi says, “Krrish 3 is undoubtedly one of the big ticket movies releasing this year! While the numbers from the first three days may not be as big as they would have been if the film had released on the 4th because of the activities people keep busy with pre-Diwali, the film is sure to rake in a lot of money in its overall run at the cinemas.”

Most filmmakers bank on public holidays to boost their film’s prospects at the ticket windows. That’s what Senior Roshan is also hoping for by releasing Krrish 3 during the Diwali weekend. Plus, the Hrithik Roshan-Priyanka Chopra starrer has no competition at the box office, which will prove to be a huge advantage. “The trailers are doing fantastic and the buzz is great around the film; however, Krrish 3 lacks in music. But since it’s a solo release and that too during Diwali weekend, Krrish 3 will benefit from this,” points out distributor Sunny Khanna.

With so many factors working in its favour, will Rakesh Roshan’s latest offering beat the box office record of Chennai Express, the Shahrukh Khan-Deepika Padukone starrer? “Chennai Express was a solo release during Eid and managed to get cash registers ringing. So is Krrish 3 at Diwali. Also, the ticket prices of the superhero film are higher in multiplexes, just like Chennai Express. In that way, there is lot of similarity between the two films. But as far as beating the record of Chennai Express is concerned, I think the movie will collect around Rs 180-200 crores, but that’s just an estimation. The collections can go beyond that,” added Khanna.

Rohit Shetty’s romcom became the first film ever to cross Rs 100 crore nett in its opening weekend. Will Krrish 3 outdo SRK’s film and race ahead? “Rs 100 crores should surely be crossed in the first four days, by Monday. In fact, the film would have surely crossed the lifetime figure of Chennai Express had the songs been better, but the chances are even despite that,” believes Rathi.

Whether Krrish 3 breaks all the records set by Chennai Express is to be seen. But one thing is for sure, it will be a dhamakedaar Diwali at the box office with Hrithik back in his black cape and more super-power!Subscribe to me on YouTube

    As crap as the movie is the movie will surely go in the 100cr club in the 1st week. More interesting is how much the movie and its promo costs. I mean who cres about 100cr. when the movie costs around 150cc.?
