Jagga Jasoos Hit or Flop : Budget, Economics, Box Office Prediction. Jagga Jasoos is all set to release on 14th July. Here is our predictions on the opening (1st) day, 1st weekend & 1st week box office collection regarding the film. The movie stars Ranbir Kapoor, Katrina Kaif in lead roles.
The first teaser/trailer had received a mixed response as it was different and non commercial compared to the normal Hindi big films. The film has been in the news for the last 3 years or so for all the wrong reasons. The music of the film hasn’t worked as expected and neither has the latest trailer of the film. The film has gone through multiple re-shoots and release delays and is finally seeing the light of the day after being in production for almost 4 years so lot is riding on the film as far as the trade and money goes.
The film is completely relying on the hype around Ranbir Kapoor – Katrina Kaif coming together in a film after their public break up although the look and feel of the film has pulled down that limited hype too. The film is not looking as bad as Bombay Velvet but it isn’t also good either considering the costs attached with the film.
We had a chat with Leading Exhibitor Akshaye Rathi on Jagga Jasoos and here is what he has to say about the film.
Jagga Jasoos is a fairly expensive film and it will depend heavily on word of mouth to succeed at the box office. The film has been given a limited release considering the fact that it is a big budget extravaganza but that can work in favor of the film as it help build up the occupancy.
The only advantage of the film is that it can surprise the audience if the content is good enough because the expectations from the film aren’t that high. It can work with the kids and families because these type of adventure films are rarely made in India and if made well, they can definitely find an audience.
The biggest drawback of the film are its high costs although the makers are distributing the films themselves so the trade won’t have the risk of the loosing money if the film doesn’t work. The industry is in desperate need of a success and I hope Jagga Jasoos turns out to be that.
