Check out what trade has to say about the upcoming film...
Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone-starrer, Tamasha is all set to release this Friday and with a positive buzz around the film, it is being predicted that the film may open well at the box office. However, Ranbir and Deepika have already set very high expectations after a crackling performance in Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani. YJHD collected about Rs 118.57 crore at the domestic box office and while we cannot predict if Tamasha will earn that much or not, we can sure say that they film will perform decently.
As our trade expert, Akshaye Rathi reveals, "Courtesy the star cast and especially Deepika Padukone, the film will appeal to the youth and I see the film performing well in the urban cities and multiplexes rather than the towns and single screen theatres. It will do very well in Mumbai, Pune, Bangalore and Delhi. The film will definitely benefit from Deepika Padukone and Ranbir Kapoor's return together after Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani. They are a fantastic pair and it will be interesting to see them work together again after a few years. Their chemistry will definitely get eyes rolling."
The film's music will also attract the crowd, as Akshaye adds, "A R Rahman has a certain fan following himself. Tamasha's music is good and it is picking up very well. There are a few good songs, especially Agar Tum Saath Ho and it seems that the music will also pull in the crowd."
The total cost of production for the film including the promotional cost has been estimated to be around Rs 70-80 crore as they have shot in various locations without receiving much concession. To recover such a huge cost will be a task, however trade suggests that the film will open decently. "The film may earn in between Rs 25-30 crore over the first weekend," suggests Akshaye.
Not the Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani standards, but it is quite decent compared to a lot of films that have released already this year. With no other release at the box office and a good word of mouth publicity, the film is expected to have a good run at the box office!
