Realistic Housefull 2 Prediction

*Considering HF2 is liked as much as HF1 or somewhere around there…

Opening Weekend : HF1 had a opening weekend of 31 cr. Now it sure had a good opening period(first weekend post IPL), but even though HF2 is releasing with IPL its also got a good bank holiday on Friday.(Good Friday) so it will offset it.

Using norms of Inflation , approx weekend for HF2 with respect to HF1, comes to ~ 39.25 cr. But considering the fact that it will release in almost double the prints (2700+) and also it has usual Sequel Franchise Appeal, another 4-5 cr can be added.

So Overall Weekend Prediction : 40-45 cr.

First Week Prediction : Weekend to Week conversion for HF1 was 1.53. Taking a similar factor here, the First week collection comes at 62-68 cr Range.

Lifetime Prediction : HF1 had competition from Badmaash Company but overall had a decent BO run. HF2 has 3 clear weeks with some small movies and ofcourse IPL,so that is also comparable.

Week to Lifetime ratio of HF1 was 1.52. Taking that as reference again, Lifetime Prediction for HF2 comes at 94-104 cr.

Overall i think it might end up in the higher end of the prediction due to franchise appeal and larger release.

Final Prediction : 95-105 cr

    The bad phase of Akkis career might play a negative role for HF2. Still I think 80-85Cr is achievable.

    110 crore for housefull 2..90 crore purely due to akki star power…30 crore due to the sex appeal of the ladies…rest of them zero..and oh -10 due to john :D..so all in all 110 :D

      Nw ths is wat i hve a prob wid akki fans… Inspite of knwing bad phase of akki dey ova confidently say 90 crs purely due to akki’s star power.. Dude m srry bt wud lyk 2 ask u 1 question.. Wer did ur akki’s star power go at d tym of Desi boyz??

    @doga

    1.What was the cost(PP incl.) of Housefull?

    2.What is the cost(PP incl.) of Housefull-2?

    3.The nett of HF was 72.5cr right while MNIK nett was 74cr?

    4.Why r u looking so different and bearded(like some Taliban Terrorist) in ur latest pic….???
    U went from looking like ‘Dashing’ Hrithik to ‘Rugged’ Abhishek Bachchan.

    My preds & views on HF-2,

    Akki is an actor i always admired and liked frm the late 90′s(along wid SRK and HR)….I like him more fr his discipline and fitness…I was really glad to c his spectacular 2007 year(along wid SRK’s 2007) but he somewhat lost his way post SIK in 2008 bcz of a truckfull of Crapfest films.

    • dennycrane1 said:

      i still believe acting wise akki is the most talented even though i like sallu more..he can do all roles wid ease…only thing left for him to prove is in historicals

  5. dennycrane1 said:

    @rocky-sorry to dissapoint but i m a sallu fan :D..still appreciate akki though..
    akki starpower was superbly negated by john abraham megapower who had almost equal footing..hence contributed -20 crore…else desi boyz would have had 40 crore opening weekend :D

  6. Serenzy said:

    Post SIK(which i dint admire much aftr a hilarious Welcome) the only Akki films I liked in 4 years were Housefull & Patiala House.

    Housefull was great fun and bettr den Heyy Babyy.

    Akki was in Top Form in PH.

    …..

    Unfortunately, d only success Akki saw aftr SIK was wid HF, rest all his films were failures till Desi Boyz.

    The success of HF-2 is damn imprtant and crucial fr akki…Anyways he is having a disastr in Joker…But d success of hf2 cud be helpful to one of my mostly awaited Rowdy Rathore.

    If hf2 fails and so does RR, than akki will b so goneee.

    Only if OUATIM-2 & S26 r gems/masterpieces den akki is saved to an extent.

  7. Serenzy said:

    On dat note i wud say,

    if HF-2 is liked much and has good+ WOM than,

    lifetime – 85cr+(dis is my pred seeing ‘desi boyz’ BO response).

    Verdict – Success for Akki aftr exactly 2 years wid d sequel of d same film.

    @doga
    - hf2 has god-gifted 3 open weeks but WOM will b major factor… Dat will decide wether its another AV or a Ready/G3(though i doubt it will cross 100cr like dose films but i hope d content by Sajid is bettr den both of dose craps).

    -ipl is for 2 months+….Movie is of 2 hours+,..
    So i urge evryone to stop using dis IPL reference…In no ways can it harm hf2 and ipl does not have d popularity of its past.

    Even Emmy ruled in ipl wid Jannat dat too in 2008(ipl was stong den).
    Dis is akki wid hf2 in 2012.

  8. Sahil19 said:

    90 plus cr due to akki’s starpower and making 1st one a huge success, rest down to music, ladies and director and promotion ofcourse, think how hf wud be if it didn’t have akki and had ritesh, john etc, i doubt it wud get as much attention and awareness. to rocky, desi boyz did 40 plus crore and was hugely profitable, desi was never going to be a mind blusting at the BO, DB was made to get akki’s trust back with his fans and audience, which has actually helped.

  9. Serenzy said:

    @denny crane

    first learn a thing or two abt BO and stars bfr commenting!!

    @tashan
    y r u so afraid to give out ur hf2 preds??

    I kept faith in SRK aftr RA.One and got a ‘success’ with Don2..
    :P
    :D
    ;)

    culdnt c ur cmment in ur post either…I hope u read my cmments atleast.

  10. Tashan said:

    @serenzy i am nt afraid i just dnt want to talk big…just a week is left everything will be clear and for ur info jannat grossed less than tashan…ipl affects big films nt 5 cr films which need 20cr to be a hit

  11. Serenzy said:

    @tashan

    RA.One outgrossed Paan Singh Tomar by miles….We know vich film is d BIGGER SUCCESS today!!

    Jannat is a well appreciatd Hit of Emmy while Tashan was a thrashed big failure(though akki was superb as Bachchan Pandey but film was megacrap) dat too wid YRF,kareena,saif,anil,akki,big songs….MP release wont have helped it much either due to its high costs.

    IPL is no longer a strong force by any stretch of margin…Hf2 has 3 weeks and a weak ipl as opposition…Agar isme b fail hota hain den kya kehne!!!

    Clinging to ipl as a reason fr failure is a immature way f some akki fans….Instead u must b ready to face d reality.

  12. Serenzy said:

    See the irony

    RA.One collected ’103 crores’ more den Paan Singh Tomar.

    Still, its PST vich is d Bigger HIT and got better response.

    The Power of Cinema & Aam Junta!!
    :)

  13. Sahil19 said:

    Actually if Houseful manages to overcome IPL, it’s a big achievement, don’t make dumb comments that IPL is not big competition lol.

    Tashan would of been a hit in it’s 1st week itself atleast if it released properly on it’s release day, a major 10 crore chunk was lost due to that.

    @sahil

    seeing ur and mine cmments its easy to prove dat who is talking more maturely and who is talking like a fan-boy(childlike).

    Even considering IPL-5 as a threat is a Big LOL…Already trying to think of escape routes even bfr the verdict is Out.

  16. Sahil19 said:

    so you have a problem because i said akki will contribute 90 plus crore to Houseful??? what’s childish in that, when he is the biggest superstars in the last 5 years, and making childish dumb comments tha IPL is not big shows who need’s go back to school lol

  17. Sahil19 said:

    To JTW, I couldn’t post in other thread as it was closed, but in reply to your mental logic that flop herione twinkle gave akki superstardom, 1st of all if you want to believe that logic than answer these question, if that is true what yousay then tell me why shecouldn’t get him films with established produers and directors, why with newbies like vipul shah, bushan kumar, Umesh Mehra, who were not established filmakers, and also if you wanna believe that logic than that logic can go down the drain when i can mention his clean hits like Mohra, Sabse Bada Khiladi, Khiladiyon Ka Khiladi, Khiladi, also being right as 2nd most top star in 1994 with best actor nomination in yeh dillagi, all came before he even had any relationship with twinkle.

    I think Tees Maar Khan though a semi-hit according BOI was a big let down for people who saw it. I liked the movie as I think it was a good spoof movie to come out of bollywood but people expected much bigger action comedy and grandeur. And that expectation was blown to smithereens by the over expectations of Tees Maar Khan. But I think Akki has gained a lot of credibility from his classy fans after Patiala House and Desi boys. He was appreciated by the masses after Thank You. A lot of people saw these movies of telly and new that their Idol has turned a new page. And so Akki has gained a lot of lost ground with these movies. And his fans who have seen these movies and surely going to turn up in theaters to see Housefull . So I think 90-100 would be easy. What say Akkians.

  21. Serenzy said:

    @ singh is king
    Thank You.

    @CFIC
    Arre der r movies releasing in during ipl.
    Hf2 has 2 open weeks and not 3…
    There r small budget films vich have made a lot of noise and excitement coming.
    Vicky Donor,Hate Story.

    Also an ajay starrer wid kangy,anil is dere wid Tezz,VVC’s Ferrari Ki Sawari,The Biggie- Emmy’s Jannat2(sureshot Hit).
    Dangerous Ishq,Ishaqzaade etc. are all coming during ipl and r taking it head on.

    Point being dat ipl is no longer a threat to big movies and films will work if content is good(like Jannat in ’08).

  22. Serenzy said:

    If hf2 content is not good and crap toh phir ipl ko kyun dosh de rahe ho benchod!!!

    If content is bad nothing can save it not even free weeks.

    @DOGA

    I STILL WANT MY ANSWERS…Have asked 4 questions to u above!!!!!!

  23. dwnpiyush said:

    I think the makers are anticipating some real bad reviews and reactions coming there way, and have thus postponed the release by one day. Releasing on a Thursday could have been really dangerous if the reactions were not favorable.

      • Jasp the Wasp said:

        Already Akki fanatics are finding crap excuses to explain possible (I repeat POSSIBLE) failure of HF2. Such is the confidence in the biggest superstar of the last 5 years LOL.

        • dennycrane1 said:

          jtw-how many times do i have to say i m a sallu fan..not akki..althoough its way cool to be a fan of akki than srk :D..much better looking than the rajpal yadav lookalike :D

          • Jasp the Wasp said:

            Yeah, at least I am a fan of some bonafide superstars, unlike Akki who needs fanatic lying to push him to that status :P

  24. alizain2844 said:

    For all akki ans..
    Dear dnt dream big..
    Weekend will be max 38 cr and lifetime will be 80-85 cr..
    And IPL is not a threat at all..

  25. Jasp the Wasp said:

    IPL threat my foot. It stopped being a threat the moment a Pandora’s box of controversies surrounding it came out and people found out that the IPL is nothing more than cheap entertainment, not real cricket.

    If HF2 fails, it will be because of content. Not because of IPL.

  26. AwesomeAkshay said:

    For those saying that if hf2 fails and blah blah……… I tell you that it’s not going to be failure and i can guarantee you on that. Housefull 2 to is going to rock this entire April .

  27. Dogafull-2 said:

    @ Serenzy

    Cost of Housefull was 58 cr.

    Cost of Housefull 2 expected to be 70-75 cr

    Housefull 1 did around 72 cr and MNIK did 72.75 cr but Housefull did have marginally higher DS as it was more successfull in Single Screens and MNIK did more in plexes.

    • dennycrane1 said:

      Yeah, at least I am a fan of some bonafide superstars, unlike Akki who needs fanatic lying to push him to that status

      jtw-akki wid 100 more flops will be way cooler than the ugly looking hermaphrodite that is srk..his gazzilion hits not withstanding :D
      by the way once more i would remind u tht i m a fan of the super cool salman :D
      by the way were u mesmerised by srk’s hawk shaped nose :D ?

  28. harish said:

    At the moment Akshay Kumar is at all time low. Saif Flops like Agent Vinod and Aaraskhan are making more than Akshay Well trended Thank You and Critically Acclaimed Hit Desi Boyz. So looking at that trend not much we can expect from Houseful 2. The only plus for Houseful 2 is it is directed by Sajid Khan who knows what audience wants, but 2 times lucky third unlucky is strong possibility remember Farah Khan Hit Main Hoon Naa and Blockbuster Om Shanti Om and after that Flop Tees Maar Khan.

    lol haters will come up with denial if HF2 succeeds, claiming IPL is not big deal, sure they wud of not say that if movies of their star releases
