QnA Session

QnA session has ended now. We tried to answer as many questions as we could.

You can discuss about the answers and write your feedback in the comments. We will see you again next Sunday.

Q. I was asking when will this content driven bullshit will end as if commercial film are a waste?


Ans. Content driven films are also commercial like Kapoor and Sons, Bajrangi Bhaijaan, Bajirao Mastani etc. In this year, only films having solid content like Airlift, Neerja, K&S have emerged hits except Ki and Ka. It was in the past when commercial films like Chennai Express, Kick were also emerging big hits. But things have changed drastically in last one year or so. Now films like Singh Is Bling, Dilwale, Mastizaade are struggling.


Q. How do u rate Udta Punjab trailer on 10? And which was the best trailer till now in 2016?


Ans. On a personal note I extremely loved Udta Punjab trailer. But overall it will be rated as 7.5/10. Fan was the best trailer of 2016 followed by Airlift.


Q. Not a question, Just want to appreciate your review team. Unbiased and very true for all films. Keep it up and never change and don’t worry of abusive fans. Just don’t loose your honesty.


Ans. Thank you for your feedback. Only with the help of you guys we have come this far. We hope that you will continue to support us.


Q. How does a site like yours earn revenue? How does online portals like yours and various other trade websites earn their revenue?


Ans. Through advertisement. But currently, it is not on our minds as we are still building our setup. Films were our passion and it was more like a dream comes true. We also do other things in our professional life other than blogging.


Q. Can Mohenjodaro affected by Rustom?


Ans. Not at all unless Mohenjo Daro turns out to be a really bad film.


Q. What will you say to these critics whose 3* 4* cannot bring audience to the theaters and what is the credibility of such critics?


Ans. Anyone can have his own opinion. But we have noticed that some of the critics or websites always tend to give 1 or 2 extra star for movies of Khans. They mostly give 4 or 4.5 stars to every big film.


Q. Which Bollywood actress has nice personality?


Ans. Rakhi Sawant. Is this a question?


Q. What type of movie (genre) SRK should do next according to you?


Ans. Films with Imtiaz Ali and Aanand L Rai should be a good choices.


As Kareena received wide praise for Ki and Ka from critics and public, and was hit. Will she win Filmfare or National award this year?


Ans. Kareena was good in Ki and Ka but we guess you have not watched Neerja.


Q. What are your expectations from Dangal? Also has Aamir signed any other film?


Ans. Anything but HUGE. The brand of Aamir has become so much popular that the audience has a blind faith in the name of Aamir. Besides Dangal, Aamir has not signed any film. There were some reports that he will start working on his next directional film but it is not confirmed


Q. When will Housefull 3 trailer release?


Ans. The first look poster was expected to release on 15th April but it did not happen. Now the trailer is expected to be out in the last week of April or first week of May.


Q. The population of India is 1.3 billion+, but why are Bollywood movies not earning as much as Hollywood?

Ans. Less number os screens, higher ticket prices, more mediums of entertainment, piracy etc.


Q. Will any other actor give HGOTY or HGOAT besides Khans or Hrithik?


Ans. Ajay Devgn can give a shot to HGOTY with Shivaay. But HGOAT is almost impossible to achieve without the star power of Khans or Hrithik.


Q. What is your verdict about Sarbijit?


Ans. If the film has right content then 100 crores can be achieved as patriotic films are doing pretty well recently.


Q. Why Maneesh Sharma not included Jabra Fan to please masses?


Ans. Yes that was an opportunity missed. Probably he was wanted to be different from others yet fell in the same category.


Q. Hrithik Roshan apparently met up with Akshay Kumar to request him to push the release of his film Rustom as it was clashing with his ‘Mohenjo Daro. Is it true bollyarena?


Ans. Hrithik and Akshay are good friends but the release date is not in their hands as they are not producing these films.


Q. If Fan is a multiplex oriented movie then why it was released on so many single screens?


Ans. Because it had Shahrukh Khan.


q. Is the clash between Rustom and Mohenjo Daro confirmed?


Ans. Yes, the clash is very much on. The makers of Rustom have even started marketing to take the advantage.


Q. Are you working on a Bollyarena app?


Ans. We made an app when we were working on new version. But unfortunately, it was not up to the mark so we have not launched it yet.


Q. Can fan beat Airlift and Jai Ho?


Ans. It should collect in between Airlift and Jai Ho.


Q. How much Fan needs to collect to become superhit in India?


Ans. 170 Crores.


Q. What is the budget of Mohenjodaro?


Ans. Considering the scale it should be around 130-150 crores.


Q. Do you think according to fan following Salman is bigger superstar than SRK now?


Ans. Salman Khan is the biggest crowd puller in India right now.


Q. Early estimates of The jungle book’s second Sunday collection?


Ans. Sorry we, are only tracking Fan now. But The Jungle Book should cross 10 crore today considering the recent trend.


Q. What other releases are scheduled for the Gandhi Jayanti weekend?


Ans. Shahid Kapoor, Saif Ali Khan and Kangana Ranaut’s Rangoon on 30th September.


Q. Who is the lead actor in SLB’s next film after Bajirao Mastani?


Ans. There are rumours that it will star SRK or Ranveer Singh. But considering the release date it will not feature SRK as his other film, Aanand L. Rai’s next is also releasing in December 2017. On the other hand Ranveer will also be busy in Rohit Shetty’s next. So we still have to wait for the official announcement.


Q. Can Fan cross the lifetime domestic collections of Dilwale? How much does it need to collect on Monday to sail over 150 cr?


Ans. With that trend 150 crores is out of reach. It should collect 10 crores on Monday to have any chance.


Q. Any update on Ranbir-Ayan super hero film?


Ans. Ranbir will start Ayan Mukerji’s film after wrapping up Jagga Jasoos in May. The film is expected to release next year.


Q. Which will be the next movie after FAN to have a good opening & earn 100 cr+?


Ans. Baaghi and Housefull 3.


Q. When we can see the first look or teaser of Mohenjodaro?


Ans. Probably next month. As for now the post production work is going on in full swing and the team is not focusing on marketing yet.


Q. What will we the verdict of Fan if its lifetime collection is in the range of 90-95 cr?


Ans. Flop.


Q. How is the response to Sultan teaser? Does it have the potential to create historic opening like Ekk Tha Tiger if it gets solo release on Eid holiday?


Ans. Sultan teaser has received good response from audience. As far as opening is concerned, it will be tough for any film to match the opening of Ekk Tha Tiger which at that time opened to 90-95% occupancy. Now the screen count has been increased further. Though the film can challenge highest opening day if it releases on Eid day and had some chartbuster music.


Q. Now due to the underperformence of Fan, do you think that Shahrukh Khan’s fan following has decreased?


Ans. Fan had limited appeal, no music and was competing against The Jungle Book. The film was completely relying on SRK’s star power. So the film collected 19.50 crore on its opening day which is a good number. It is the second biggest non-holiday opener behind only Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani.

Even in the past, SRK’s films have always opened huge but failed to maintain the pace after that. So definitely his fan following has not decreased much but it is the content that has not worked in his favour in the past. Though now he badly needs a film that has universal appeal and caters to each section of audience.


Q. Please update about Sultan vs Raees clash on Eid?


Ans. We have told you last week that the clash is averted. Here is the report (Raees postponed, Sultan to enjoy solo release)


Q. When will Sultan trailer release?


Ans. In June.


Q. According to you, what is the best release date for Raees once it shifts from Eid?


Ans. Raees can release on 30th September so that it can take the advantage of Gandhi Jayanti holiday. Other two rumoured release dates, Independence day and Diwali are already flooded with multiple releases.


Q. Why Fan is not doing well inspite of positive word of mouth?


Ans. Because the film has received mixed to negative response at mass centers. And even in multiplexes it is competing with The Jungle Book which is a universally accepted film in all over India.
