Phillauri: The first trailer of the film was instantly liked by the audience and trade as it offered something unique and fresh. But since then the makers have not been able to sustain the buzz. Songs have not worked, in fact they were confusing. There are also reports that Diljit is playing a negative role which might not go well with his core fan following in Punjab.
Naam Shabana: Naam Shabana is carrying a low buzz and is one of those films which will heavily rely on word of mouth. The makers are trying too hard to cash on Akshay Kumar and Neeraj Pandey. But it is not Neeraj Pandey directional and Akshay is only playing a cameo.
Sarkar 3: Sarkar 3 trailer was liked. But the promotions of the film have not begun yet. Ram Gopal Verma's box office track record is also poor. Sarkar is not brand as both films of the franchise were not box office hits. Still, it will have a reasonable opening due to Amitabh Bachchan.
Fast and Furious 8: Hollywood's action release Furious 8 will release on 14 April and will have some holidays advantage. The domination of Hollywood has continued in 2017 also as they are opening better than Bollywood films in clash. Furious 8 is a biggie and Bollywood has not dared to release any of the films alongside it despite the fact it is a very good release period.
Fast and Furious 7 collected over 100 crore in 2015. There is a thought that the film got extra publicity due to the death of Paul Walker before release. Still, F8 will be eyeing to beat the last film.
Baahubali 2: It is undoubtedly the biggest film of 2017 so far. The trailer of the film has been loved by the all and has sent strong waves in the trade also. Hindi version of Last Baahubali film opened to 5 cr and went on to collect 120 cr in the lifetime run. Baahubali 2 will open in the range of 20 cr and will have a chance to touch 200 cr. It will remain the highest grosser of 2017 till the release of Tubelight.
The Jungle Book released last April and became the highest grosser of the year by collecting over 180 cr. Only two Bollywood films were able to cross that figure. With the release of Fast and Furious 8 and Baahubali 2, hard times are coming for Bollywood.
