Marjaavaan: HIT or FLOP?

Marjaavaan Day 1 Collection Prediction | Analysis


'Marjaavaan' is Bollywood's upcoming mass masala action film featuring actors Riteish Deshmukh, Siddharth Malhotra and Tara Sutaria in the lead roles. The film is directed by Milap Zaveri, who previously directed the successful commercial entertainer 'Satyameva Jayate' starring John Abraham. In this post, we try to analyse the box office prospects of 'Marjaavaan' and predict the opening day collection of the film.

Marjaavaan was originally scheduled to release on Oct 2nd, going in a clash with the big-budget big-star action film, 'War', starring Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff. But, 'Marjaavaan' was postponed to a later date, and wisely so. As, October 2nd was already crowded with both biggies 'War' and 'Sye Raa' releasing together, and even the Hollywood film 'Joker' releasing on the same day. And, even if it was only 'War' on Oct 2nd and no 'Sye Raa' and 'Joker'; the results would've been disastrous for 'Marjaavaan' had it gone into a clash with 'War'. You simply don't go ahead and clash with an event film, specially when both your lead actors are going through a disastrous patch at the box office.

'Marjaavaan' was initially postponed to 22nd November, but, now the film is scheduled to hit the screens on 8th November. There aren't any big films releasing on that day, and it will mostly be a solo release for the film at the box office. The trailer of the film has already released, and has the looks of a complete mass masala film. The southern flavour is very much evident in the trailer, be it the costumes, the fights, the sets or even the background music. It makes the film seem like a khichdi of southern inspirations. The trailer, honestly, is very divisive. Either you'll totally like it or just hate it completely. But, both ways it has definitely managed to create a buzz for the film, And, there is still a month to go for the film to release; that's a good lot of time for the promotions and publicity.

UPDATE: There is once again another change in the release date of 'Marjaavaan'. The film is now scheduled to release on November 15th. 'Marjaavaan's release date is reportedly changed by the film's producer Bhushan Kumar to avoid clashing with Ayushhmann Khurrana's 'Bala' which is now slated to release on November 7.

It is obvious from the trailer that the film is a mass masala entertainner, and there may not be many takers for the film at the multiplexes, specially in the metros and the Tier-1s. It will be the mass centres that will mainly propel the film's business at the box office. But, both the male leads don't have enough box office pull to bring the masses to the cinemas solely based on their stardom. Sidharth has 5 flops in a row, namely 'Baar Baar Dekho, 'A Gentleman', 'Ittefaq', 'Aiyaary' and 'Jabariya Jodi'. Sidharth Malhotra's last HIT film was 'Kapoor & Sons' which was a multi-starrer and was a pure multiplex film. Similarly, Riteish Deshmukh is coming after back-to-back flops/disasters, and the only succesful films that Riteish was part of were multi-starrer films with bigger stars like the Housefull series and Dhamaal series. But, Siddharth Malhotra and Riteish Deshmukh together had a Super Hit film called 'Ek Villain', which was way back in 2014. Since, both the actors are coming after a series of box office flops/disasters, the opening day collections will mostly depend upon the audiences' interest in the film and the pre-release buzz which are created and shaped by the publicity material like the posters, promos, songs. Remember, 'Ek Villain' had blockbuster music; all the film's songs were hugely popular and were chart-busters before the release of the film, which gave a huge boost to the film's pre-release interest and buzz. 'Ek Villain' collected an amazing ~16.50 crores on its opening day, which is still the best box office opening for both the actors!

If 'Marjaavaan' wants to take a good opening at the box office then it has to build a good hype for the film among its target audience. The lead actors are not going to be a huge draw at the ticket counters. The solo release will help the film in accumulating more numbers at the box office. And, obviously, if the film manages to impress its core audience, then the good word-of-mouth will sail the film through. Right now, going by the current buzz for the film, 'Marjaavaan' might take an opening of around ~5-7 crores. Of course, there is still a month's time to go for the film to release, and a lot can change in that time. We will once again update this article just a week before the release; and there will be another edit to this article on the night before release, where we make our Day 1 prediction based on our advance booking report.
