Gorilla’s WOM – Jab Tak Hain Jaan #JTHJ, Son of Sardaar #SOS

Son of Sardaar:

Son of Sardaar is carrying good WOM. It is a time pass movie and a perfect Diwali release. The movie had issues in getting single screens and this will affect its final total. Unlike its southern original, this will not be a blockbuster. Critics have predictably panned this film but filmgoers are liking it. The WOM is better than Bol Bachchan.

Verdict: Hit (Rs 90-95 Cr)
Potential loss due to JTHJ – at least 25 Cr

Jab Tak Hain Jaan:

Jab Tak Hain Jaan is carrying good WOM. It is a one time watch movie and has a better release in terms of single screen than SOS. This will ensure a better week 1 than SOS. However those looking for a blockbuster need to hope that SOS turns out to be 75Cr netter only which is less likely to happen. Yash Chopra factor is playing a big role here and this may add Rs 5 Cr or so more. Critics have lapped up this film, but movie goers are less enthusiastic but nonetheless positive.

Verdict: Superhit ( Rs 115-120 Cr)
Potential loss due to SOS – at least 15 Cr

* Above WOM is obtained from over 1500 subscribers to FDFS group created by me and friends. In this group most of the subscribers watch movie on Day 1 and give feedback. Apart from this group, feedback from members of NG. my friends and colleagues are also collected. Accuracy of this method has been 98% so far in last 24 months.

Gorillas are the largest of the living primates. They are ground-dwelling herbivores that inhabit the forests of Africa. Gorillas are divided into two species and (still under debate as of 2008) either four or five subspecies. The DNA of gorillas is 98%–99% identical to that of a human, and they are the next closest living relatives to humans after the two chimpanzee species.......To cut a long story short, I am the kaala bander residing inside YOU!

      srk fans ki yehi aukat hai…always making fake public reviews and then posting the link in various social sites.
      thank god i m only fake srk lover.

    gorilla man I love you…I loved the way you made tai tai fish out of srk fans..
    first praised and gave good reviews to JTHJ in order to elate them and now hit them hard by predicting 115-120 crores.

    Gorilla, check my comment on tango’s post. Jthj has made ra1 numbers for day 1 and possibly 2 – so would be very surPrised if it does less than 130. SOS, don’t see it making more than 75 or so. Let’s see

  3. Gorilla

    Today JTHJ is set to cross 18 cr and SOS 12 cr. 30 cr on a single day…will be a record.

  4. Gorilla

    Beld if JTHJ does ra.one ‘s nett of 21 cr….then it will surely be a contender to cross 140 cr.

    Gorilla I feel the family factor is likely to make JTHJ the lambi race ka ghoda. Because jab family bahar aati hai to sab logic zero ho jaati hai.

    SOS is being loved by today’s youths, who love fun-action cinema, but they will last only till Sunday. But if they patronise SOS betond Sunday, it can do much better.

    That is my humble observation.

    ‘Today JTHJ is set to cross 18 cr and SOS 12 cr. 30 cr on a single day…will be a record’

    Have you forgotten Tiger which made 32 in 1 day :P

    trade pandits were expecting 40 crores in a single day. Probably 15 for SOS and 25 for JTHJ.
    Considering ETT collection of 31 crores, combined collection of less than 40 crores for SOS + JTHJ seems slightly lower.
    SOS will do its part by collecting 15 crores. The question is will JTHJ live up to the expectation and collect 25 crores?
    IF JTHJ collects less than 25 crores on the second day I will consider that srk has indeed lost his star power (only in india)

  8. Gorilla

    Naveed, I thought ETT made 28 cr…if it did 31 cr, then it has to be seen if it gets broken…I think I will.

    Tango bhai….the family is indeed going for JTHJ. film is going to sustain.

  9. RJ

    Both JTHJ and SOS together couldnt break ETT’s single day record. Baat karte hain!!

  10. FS

    Combined collection of Sos and Jthj may not exceed 186cr of ETT even though Jthj was riding on ETT :P But Sos may take over jthj sooner than later.
