Prem Ratan Dhan Payo Box Office Prediction:
Prem Ratan Dhan Payo is the most awaited film of 2015. It stars Salman Khan, Sonam Kapoor, Neil Netin Mukesh and Anupam Kher in the lead roles. Directed by Sooraj Barjatya, it will release on 12 November 2015.
It is our third and last part of Prem Ratan Dhan Payo box office prediction. The opening day, weekend and lifetime collection will be predicted in this section.
This year, we have successfully predicted the opening day and lifetime collection for a lot of movies with few exception (Bombay Velvet, TWMR, and KKPK).
Salman Khan was recently seen in Bajrangi Bhaijaan which became one of the biggest blockbusters ever. So he is on all time high of his career. The superstar has a dream run since 2010 and has proven to be a one man army. For a successful film, you need good story, direction, screenplay and solid marketing. But if you can't afford these, then sign Salman Khan.
Sooraj Barjatya has given huge successful films like Maine Piyar Kiya and Hum Aapke Hain Kaun in yesteryear. But does his magic will work in the era of multiplexes. This is something that we cannot predict. But one thing is sure that there is a lot of anticipation about the return of Salman-Sooraj together. The goodwill of Hum Aapke Hain Kaun and other blockbusters will help it big time.
The pre release buzz and hype is extremely high. The trailer of the film may have received mixed response from audience but it was given thumbs up by trade pundits.
The music of PRDP is decent. But the title song Prem Ratan Dhan Payo has become chartbuster. Everyday we see dubmash videos by celebrities of this song. This helped to increase the build up.
The film is releasing on Diwali which is perfect release date as it is a family drama film. On Diwali, family audience comes in huge numbers to theaters.
If we talk about negative aspects, the film lacks youth appeal. Though Salman Khan fans will definitely go for it on the first day. But the general youth may wait for reviews or word of mouth. But they don not have a lot of options at cinemas so they might end up watching it with their family too.
The distributor Fox Star Studios are having the worst phase ever. They have given seven back to back flops/disasters. The other cast is also not so lucky at the box office with names like Sonam Kapoor and Neil Netin Mukesh. Can Salman change the fortunes for them?
PRDP will also have to face competition from much hype Thala Ajith's Vedhalam and Kamal Hassan's Thoongavanam in South. Salman's last release BB was also affected by Baahubali.
PRDP will have an Earth shattering opening all over India except down South. The film will set the box office on fire in Delhi/NCR, East Punjab, UP, Maharashtra and Bengal. It will challenge the opening day record of Happy New Year and with extra push from Southern circuits, it can break this record too. PRDP will cross 100 crore on its extended first weekend with ease.
After a healthy weekend, the film will depend upon words of mouth. Salman's films have never been dependent on reviews but PRDP is not a masala film. So decent reviews are required for word of mouth to build. If the response is positive then only sky is limit as all record will be shattered. It can cross 200 crore in 1st week itself.
With mixed or negative word of mouth, it can witness big drops after the festive season is over.
