Usually I don’t bother writing this kinda articles. But today after reading BOI’s verdict for JTHJ I could not restrain myself. So here goes-
(From BOI- Jab Tak Hai Jaan has grossed 91 crore after ten days and has done well at multiplexes. As with films like Ra.One and Don 2 the final business will not be as much as SRK starrers should be doing in the domestic market especially as holiday releases but the difference here is that its not a big budget venture. Although it was one of the event films of 2012 the costs involved are more on the lines of a Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara and Student Of The Year rather than a Don 2 or Ek Tha Tiger. SUPER HIT)
Can BOI give more crappier logic than this? JTHJ’s budget is more in the lines of Student Of The Year and ZNMD??
They want us to believe a film starring SRK(so called KING), Katrina (No.1 Actress currently) and Anushka(future No 1 actress) has less or equal budget as a film which has New comer Alia Bhatt and two new dudes (no one even remember their names.!) ???)
If JTHJ and ZNMD has same budget (again absurd to believe) then how come ZNMD released in one and half years back is just a HIT @ 90 crores(last time I checked It was HIT) when It was a non-holiday release, shown extremely well trending?? And same time JTHJ is SuperHit when it released in biggest holiday period of Bollywood aka Diwali??
(considering JTHJ will do 115 crore final total.)
If we consider the competition factor, then I think ZNMD faced tough competition from Singham in its following week and still showed very good 2nd week collection (non-holiday period!). While JTHJ have no new competition in week two. And besides on biggest holiday period with extremely favorable release size I don’t think competition is much of an issue for a big film like JTHJ.
Still if someone wants to believe JTHJ is superhit then please take a pain to explain why Ra-One and Don2 are Hit at 115 and 106 crores respectively ??? As BOI itself said and everybody knows that Don2 was expensive film. and RA-One was super expensive film. Both films were solo release. Both had Holiday advantage. (again two biggest holiday periods. aka Diwali and Christmas). Then How come they get HIT tag????
I want to ask SRK fans here especially likes of Jaspu and others who were batting for JTHJ(nothing wrong in defending something you liked IMO) but Do you believe in this verdict of JTHJ given by BOI? Answer very sincerely with you reasoning. in context of points I mentioned above.
