  • Gorilla’s WOM Prediction for #Khiladi786 : Picture Hit Hai
    Gorilla | December 7, 2012, 8:02 PM | 26 comments | 0 views

    Expectation from Khiladi 786: I think the promos set it right. The movie was always promoted as a mindless entertainer. The songs and dialog promos set up the expectation right, something which Talaash couldn’t do as efficiently.

    WOM for Khiladi 786: The WOM is decent/mixed but more towards the +ve side. The movie is primarily riding on Akshay’s shoulder. His presence is making the tilt towards the +ve side. WOM for this movie is lower than Housefull2 or Rowdy Rathore. However success of these movies are showing in Akshay’s performance in K786. In three words K786 is a time pass movie and this is what it was meant to be.

    BO Prediction: The movie will emerge as a solid hit but will fall short of being a super hit.
    Total nett: 95-100 Cr. It will be a surprise if this crosses 100 Cr.




  • Akshay’s Khiladi 786 opens to fantastic response at Box Office

    Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar, who has already scored three big hits like Housefull 2, Rowdy Rathore and OMG! Oh My God in 2012, is back with a bang again! His latest outing Khiladi 786, which has been directed by Ashish R Mohan, has opened to a fantastic response at the Indian Box Office on the first day. It has slowed down the phase of Aamir Khan’s last week release Talaash.
    Khiladi 786, which has released in 2,786 screens in India today(December 7), has recorded very good amount of footfalls in both single screens and multiplexes in the morning and matinee shows across the country. The Akshay and Asin starrer has registered 75% to 90% occupancy in single screens and 70% to 85% occupancy in multiplexes. As per early trends, it is expected to rake in Rs 16 to 17 crores nett at the domestic Box Office on the first day of its release.
    However, Khiladi 786, which marks Akshay Kumar’s comeback to action as well as Khiladi series, is one of the most-hyped movie of the year 2012. The makers of the film have done massive promotions for it, prior its release. Especially, Akki has left no stone unturned to make
    it another big hit after his last releases like Housefull 2, Rowdy Rathore and OMG! Oh My God.

    Khiladi 786 had a mixed opening as some centres opened well while others were below the mark. The film took a 80% start at some single screens of UP bit in the same circuit some of the Delhi multiplexes were just 35%.

    The best opening is in UP and some other areas are also good but many big cities are below the mark. The film has wide release on around 2750 screens which should enable day one to put up a decent number but whether the number is strong as a 2750 screen release should be is another matter.

    A stronghold market for Akshay Kumar like East Punjab has not opened too strongly and may not even collect as much as Talaash did last week. Overall its a decent start but the film have to show strong weekend trends to come out with a good weekend.

  • India Today Review Khiladi 786: true dhamaal, Akshay style

    Film: Khiladi 786
    Cast: Akshay Kumar, Asin, Mithun Chakraborty, Himesh Reshammiya, Raj Babbar and Rahul Singh;
    Director: Ashish R.Mohan
    Rating: ***
    What can be said about a film where a couple named Mili and Bhagat conspire to bring their employer’s empire down?
    Mili? Bhagat? Get it?
    Khiladi 786 is the kind comic orgy done in shades of green, orange and pink, which doesn’t require us to strain our brain. The kicks and grunts, guffaws and chortles, the antics raillery and tomfoolery flow out unstoppered like an uncapped toothpaste tube.
    The formula is simple. And stark. Get the audience to laugh at any cost. And some of it does work quite well. Shukriya.
    We have a hero. No, make that a super-duper-hero, who flies across the air, pounds automobiles to a pulp with his bare fists, breaks down a jail cell’s stone walls with a flick of his manly fist, gets goofy or gooey-eyed depending on his co-star on screen.
    Akshay’s crazily improvised performance as a sham cop borrows dollops from Salman Khan’s Dabangg and Akshay’s own Rowdy Rathore. The derivative derringdo doesn’t diminish the impact of the italicised antics that range from the arresting to the exasperating.
    Sample this. Asin (back in fetching form for the first time since Ghajini) loves a lout who is chronically incarcerated. Each time the jailed loverboy (Rahul Singh, well-cast effectively played) is about to be released, he’s sent back packing for some unintentional crime or the other.
    Aa ab ‘lout’ chalen?
    The script seems to be written by someone who loves Akshay’s humorous heroics and his emphatic but spoofy hijinks. Both the traits are amply accentuated in the script. Khiladi 786 ultimately becomes a showcase for its insanely successful superstar hero’s talents. Akshay, as we all know, loves to play the Punjabi Devdas. He did it effectively in Vipul Shah’s Namastey London, where he stepped back gallantly to let his wife Katrina Kaif make a fool of herself with an undeserving boyfriend.
    Exactly the same triangular situation crops up in the second-half of Khiladi 786, when midway through the anarchic hilarity, Akshay decides to play the bleeding teary-eyed martyr “gifting” Asin to the aforementioned jailed jerk.
    Mamta Kulkarni in the early Khiladi film Sabse Bada Khiladi had done the airheaded lovergirl running after the wrong man. Back then, Akshay stood guard over Mamta with the same steadfast loyalty as he does for Asin.
    Some things never change in our cinema. Heroines may come and go. Heroes live on forever.
    A sense of continuity runs through all of Akshay Kumar’s comedies. He doesn’t do anything here that he hasn’t done before. The trademark goofy grin and the self-deprecating humour are back. Here, the hero is desperate to get married . That’s a sporting part whose subtext screams, ‘Look, I am such a big star and I play a character who can’t get a woman to marry me, ha ha.’
    It’s all done in fun, with plenty of unzippered zest and a comforting absence of vulgarity. The ensemble cast, particularly Mithun Chakraborty and Raj Babbar, catches on to the shrill sur of a music that suggests a blend of parody and homage to the Formula Cinema. So, we have long-lost brother of the hero showing up in the climax with a mocking mawkishness that Manmohan Desai would have approved of.
    The music by Himesh Reshammiya is splendidly in-sync with the film’s wacked-out mood. He often uses standard background effects from old Hindi films to remind us that we are laughing at conventions that never grew outdated in our cinema.
    Oh yes, Reshammiya also plays an important part in the film as a hopeless inept wedding planner. It’s good to see Reshammiya doing a Gujju act. He was born to play Mansukh.
    As for Akshay Kumar’s ‘Khiladi’ act, he can do the parodic paces blindfolded. Adding adrenaline to the antics are the crashing, tumbling somersaulting cars, which provide thrills in a very Rohit Shetty way.
    Incidentally, one character played by Sanjay Mishra thinks he looks like Amol Palekar. And bursts into “Aanewala pal jaanewala hai” from Hrishikesh Mukherjee’s Gol Maal.
    Wondering if Mishra got the wrong Gol Maal. And did he mean Ajay Devgn instead of Amol Palekar?
    “Khiladi 786″ is an oddball of a dhamaka that blends slapstick with stunts. It is farcical fun from first frame to the last. Go, have a blast
