Tamasha Box Office Prediction:
Tamasha is a romantic drama film directed by Imtiaz Ali. The film stars Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone in the lead roles. It has been produced by Sajid Nadiadwala and UTV Motion Pictures. Tamasha is scheduled to release on 27 November 2015.
This is our 3rd and last part of Tamasha prediction which is updated 4 days before the release. The opening day, weekend and lifetime collection will be predicted in this section.
This year, we have successfully predicted the opening day collection for all big films including recent releases Prem Ratan Dhan Payo, Shaandaar, Singh Is Bling etc. Though some predictions (Bombay Velevt, Welcome Back and Tanu Weds Manu Returns) have gone wrong.
The film had a lot of potential as it had huge names like Imtiaz, Ranbir, Deepika, A. R Rahman, Sajid Nadiadwala and Sidharth Roy Kapoor. But unfortunately due to dull promos and poor marketing, the film has failed to create that buzz.
Tamasha has got the perfect release date. Its been a long time that a big multiplex oriented love story has been released. Prem Ratan Dhan Payo has almost completed its run and Spectre is also not doing that well. So multiplex audience are just hungry for a good film.
The trailer of the film received mixed response from audience. The music by A.R Rahman is promising. But overall the film has less appeal outside metros.
Ranbir Kapoor is probably going through the worst phase of his career. He has given two back to back failures Besharam and Bombay Velvet. But he still has a huge fan following especially in metro cities. It will ensure a solid opening.
Deepika Padukone on the hand is riding high on the success of Piku. Some people ever have the opinion (which is obviously wrong) that Tamasha will work only due to DP. She also has an adorable chemistry with Ranbir Kapoor. Both also shares a past. This has helped the film to increase buzz in the media.
Imtiaz Ali has earlier directed highly successful films Jab We Met and Love Aaj Kal. Roockstar was a decent success but has achieved a cult status. He also has a huge fan following among youth.
The pre release buzz and hype is decent. But when makers try to over promote then it creates negativity. As people think that makers are not confident of their product. And also Tamasha is being sold on Ranbir and Deepika's relation. Instead it should be presented as a Imtiaz Ali's film.
Tamasha will have a solid start in all over India. In fact it will have one of the best openings ever in multiplexes. The single screens will just have a decent start. But it will not matter as long as multiplexes perform well. After a healthy opening day, word of mouth will come into play. If the early response is positive, then it can show huge growth over the weekend. It can also become the highest opening weekend ever for Ranbir Kapoor.
But with mixed or negative response (among its target audience) it will witness heavy falls on weekdays.
