Prediction thread: Son of Sardaar Vs Jab tak hai Jaan

This Diwali there is a war. But there can be only one victor, only one Ram who returns to Ayodhya after demolishing the demons.
So who is God and who is demon this Diwali?
Or will it be a battle and not a war?
Or will both emerge victors?
Or will both kill each other?

Expectation from both films are rocket high. Anything less than 100 cr Lifetime from either will be colossal disappointment.

Looking at the fact that SRK is coming after 10 months in a Yash Chopra film with the queen bee Katrina, raises the bar a little higher for him. He has also slipped in ranking and popularity and no one can win hearts the way king khan can and the world knows this.

On the other hand Devgn’s film is a remake of Telugu blockbuster made by SS Rajamouli. So mind says that’s this film cannot go wrong at least this year when Rajamouli’s remake Rowdy Rathore rocked the box office and became a memorable and most appreciated blockbuster.

My predictions are:

Jab tak hai Jaan:

Opening weekend: Rs 35 cr
Opening week : Rs 75 cr
Lifetime nett ( new addition) : Rs 110 cr

Son of Sardaar

Opening weekend: Rs 30 cr
Opening week: Rs 75 cr
Lifetime nett ( new addition ) : Rs 110 cr

Diwali match will be drawn. However, in this drawn match where both will win, Ajay Devgn will emerge bigger winner as David will match Golliath and emerge victorious along with him.

    At Good WOM for Both Movies :-

    JTHJ – 115/20cr

    SOS – ~100cr

    No One is Winner, No One is Loser….Both will Slightly Underperform.

    But but but… If 1 Movie Gets Excellent WOM[Barfi! Level] and Another One is TMK Level, that One will Clearly Win Big Time.

    Personally, I don’t want JTHJ to Have Bigger Collections but Go the ‘Cocktail Way’.

    JTHJ – 60cr weekend and 75cr week. Lifetime 130-145cr

    SOS – due to lower screens – 40cr weekend and 55cr week. Lifetime 90-120cr.

    PS: Weekend – 5 day weekend

    was ppl here really expecting sos to get more screens than 1600(?) ?? i think putting aside the alleged injustice of yrf ,,i don’t think sos would have got more 1600-1700 screen anyway .

    jthj – 125
    sos -65+10(for the sympathy factor. “human” around the world praying for it )

    It will be JTHJ all the way. As I have repeatedly said the Yash Chopra factor will play out in a big way as the release date nears. He was a legend and his last movie prior to release date will lead to media frenzy which would elbow out SOS. Only if SOS is a great product will it be able to bounceback in week 2 . I go with JTHJ 150+, SOS: 60-80 cr.

    Yup, i am sure media will favour jthj as smpathy factor. We have already seen them pressurizing ajay for postponement of release. They never asked same to srk or yrf. Moreover, they have taken forward yrf’s twisted arguments full of fake facts and lies about date with quite a zeal. ANYWAYS, I AM SURE PUBLIC WILL LIKE SOS MORE.

    my prediction first day TUE
    sos 10 -11 cr
    Jtht 15-17
    6 day weekend Jthj 90 – 100
    SOS 65-70
    and then content will decide
    i expect Jthj to finish at 140 and Sos to 110 to 120
    @ manish @gorilla this battle could have been easily won by sharukh but due to these misuse of power by YRF this has become intense..!! coming on akshay if khiladi 786 gets a clean verdict or hit tag lets say 80 to 90 cr then Boss will finish around 120 or more irrespective of competition ..! and OUTIM2 on eid agar salman khan bhi aega na tab bhi opening 2-4 crore cy ziada le sakta ha agay we all know ekta kapoor product and akshay as don.!!! salman bhai buht EIDI jama hogai >>!!!

    we all know k devgen have very few fans here online ..!! but i can suggest something to those who have posting rights @Danish manish gorilla ank 16 any 1..! we can make a thread so as we watch movie we will rate it out of 10 or 5 till 2 weeks at the end we will see who wins..!! we all our movie lovers !! i hope we wil do justice to our passion.!i mean both films will be rated by only NG members and we and then we will decide which is better? what say guys

    as per few speculation on storyline of JTHJ …if srk really dies then low moon (amavasya) factor will add to people’s liking for sad love story line…and may create havoc on BO ….if he dies (in movie).

    // Moon factor …new addition in movie’s success…maano ya na maano //

    For me—-
    It would be a close fight—–
    Between the Length of JTHJ and SOS Class appeal………..
    If People didn;t liked the last hour of JTHJ then——-SOS will win
    otherwise JTHJ will win—–!

    1st day combine of both SOS and JTHJ will not be more than 15 cr…….

    If someone feels it will be way higher more than 20 cr….
    then Either they don’t live in India(To feel Diwali and its effect on Collections)
    or
    They forgot that after adding 1000 3D screens with 40% more price than normal Ra.one still collected less than 15 cr.

      Rockyy——-Ra.one did
      14.50 cr in its Hindi version…..

      and

      JTHJ will not release in Dubbed version…..

      so Its only hindi version which you should talk…..

      Second—–Tamil …Telugu Audience which Don’t know Hindi don’t see Hindi movies…..
      If JTHJ would have been released in Dubbed version then it would have helped but not……in this case

          I sad Tamil…Telugu Audience who don’t know Hindi…..

          And go to Tamil Nadu or Andhra Pradesh you will Find Lakhs of people from these states who don’t Know Hindi…..

          That’s a reason why a Gabbar singh(Telugu) movie does 60 cr Gross in Andhra….
          whereas a 3Idiots did only 10 cr Gross…….
          Hope you understand…..

      Kumar3798—-no Tamil or Telugu movie Effect business of Hindi movies…..

      as There are different cinemas for both Regional films and Hindi movies in these states….

      For ex—-If Thuppaki doesn’t release then also SOS or JTHJ will still release in same theatres…..

      Thuppaki ke lagne na lagne se koi farak nhi padta……

    they will make more money if they sell remake rights of tamil/telgu movies.
    ..and keeping the distribution of those remake rights and playing YRF “card” for them too.

    (abhi se bol diya hoga ..JTHJ chhaiye to T/T version bhi hamein dene honge…yeh cinema halls to jindgai bhar ke liye bandhua and majboor ho gaye)
