Reason behind Khiladi 786’s disastrous opening.
ranju | December 8, 2012, 4:01 PM | 46 comments | 0 views


Yesterday early morning i said that Khiladi 786 will not open more than 8+ cr. But those clown fans gave me wired response. Now i am giving few reasons behind this disastrous opening.

1. Akshay Kumar, he is the biggest reason. 5 release a year is just too much for general people. Somehow, people have this idea that he is doing khiladi 786 just only for money. He has zero responsibility toward his fans.

2. Himesh Reshmiya, when people heard that he is the actor, producer, writer and musician of this film, they just turn their back.

3. All expected a Khiladi associated slick action and thriller with lots of turn and twist. But this is just a comeday movie with OTT action.

4. Same boring music with club setting and firingi dancers.

5. Khiladi looks like a cheap ripoff of Dabaang. but Akshay cant carry a Salman Khan.

6. Most importantly, Akshay kumar star power is exaggerated, h e can’t pull a worse movie on his own. He is adam sandler of hindi film indusrty.

    This is really a provocation….
    I hope your un-necessary provocation don’t compel me to write a Elaborate article on Shahrukh khan Fading sense of movies and Star power that he was defeated by Ajay devgan….Even 1 year after his Release that to with Yash chopra..!!

    I really hope so….
    Bcoz there are many article(all from various Sites not by me) which i wanted to post but held myself as i don’t hate anyone..!!

    salle hum FAns ko koi PRoblem nahi hai Akki CHahe 5 baar aaye ya 10 baar,,,,,
    tu kaun hota hai be bolne wala….

    “”just only for money. He has zero responsibility toward his fans. “”

    This coming from the fan of the guy Who just for 2 cr goes in party to dance after the death of his father figure Late Mr yash chopra..

    Really sirf 2cr ke liye……itne toh Adiya chopra se mang lete woh bhi bhik de deta..!!

    1. jealous hater of srk

      @ank first it ws nt dance party even serenzy bro who was der said dat it ws pre booked event and dnt spread false thing nayi toh zip kand se shuru kardunga dnt cross limit and dnt go personal
      If u wanna tak dig tak at his releases it applies for author of ths post also

      1. ank_16n

        please don’t tell me that a Pre booked dance show is more important than the death of his fatherly figure…..

        If he can cancel a show because of his Illness….
        Remember during his Knee injury…..
        Than this is a very lame excuse….

        “”If u wanna tak dig tak at his releases it applies for author of ths post also””
        Im taking a dig at his Statement …..and he is also talking personal..

        1. jealous hater of srk

          dude it was navaratri crowd if he would nt hav gne it would got beserk as earlier events and if he would nt hav attended u would hav termd it unprofessional
          And a ex sachin and virat father died while playing match inspite they carried wit match y could nt the hav cald it off saying they wer injured or skipped match

  4. Manish

    The only valid reason for K 786 reason not opening is first one ….

    he keeps no exclusivity and hence no curiosity ….

    It is not possible to maintain curiosity if a star comes up with 4-5 movies in an year with nothing new ….

    check any star be it srk or sallu they all faced it but they learned and changed

    But akki still doing the same and hence the opening

  5. jealous hater of srk

    srk even in his worst phase delivers big opening than the so called star of year

    1. Manish

      ur srk do 1 movie an year , akshay do 5 .. check out th eopenings of all srk movies when he used to do 3-4 movies .. did all used to open huge ??

      1. jealous hater of srk

        dnt knw the wil open huge or nt bt wil definetly open better than akki’s film

        1. Manish

          hahahhaa mitra peechay ke record check karo .. he hasnt given more than 2 hits in an year ever .. BTW every time his 3 or movies released except 2 movies most of them didnt open and/or crashed badly…

          recent hai 2004 mein swades , 2001 mein one tow ka four…

          aur peechay jata ja bahot exmaple milenge …

  6. come_fall_in_chat

    first of all u r telling 8 cr but boi has said 8.75 and komal said 9.75 n taran said above 10 and entertainment one said 16 so whom to belive n one more thing he has dare to release 5 films in year if srk has that power than he can do who stops him but he know if he done that than he will over in 2 years.

    1. jealous hater of srk

      he will b ovr statement toh paanch saal se sun raha ha who has stoppd akki doing two film a year
      Agreed srk star power is low this year and jhtj was boring bt u cant deny the fact it did 100cr wit comptetion and gt fanatistic opening wit less chartbuster music

  7. Manish

    it will happen again n again n again till he do so many movies with similar set up in a single year …

    another thing all this huge hype and blah blah was created by few exhibitors and trade ..

    it was never huge on hype …. the only momentum was build in last weeek .. and with music at smaller ecntres

    If we see Ormax was almost bang on the buzz n appeal thing for K 786

    —————————

    anyways time to move on S 26 .. promo will be out with Dabanng 2 :D

  8. Aditya007

    rightly said @Manish bhai,
    Exactly You’d said to Me at FB ,5-6day before release of movie. Btw I’m sure now Akshay will do only 2-3 movies per year. As we Assumed next Year will be only 3 releases i.e S26 , BoSS & OUTIAM2 . Very rare Chance to release for Thuppaki remake as I think.
    About Khiladi786 Its little dissapointment for Me ,Not veryHuge as For Opening isConcerned,but Today should be Good as Compare to decent Friday.

    1. ank_16n

      Aditya—–but I really like when Akki do 4 movies a year…..

      Next year also Akki will be releasing Thuppaki in December as Shooting starts in Jan
      and After 8 th Aug he will have Thuppaki in Dec which is good gap….

      This year only Joker was a forced release…..
      Otherwise Akki can handle 4 releases but 5 is too much….

  9. Phantom

    Remove himesh and this won’t even do more than joker’s opening

    1. ank_16n

      Phantom–hahaha Remove Katrina ETT won’t cross the opening of English Vinglish..!!

      How’s that…

      1. Phantom

        rightly said ank.. Katrina hi to salman ko leke aayi thi.

        If u remove katrina, then even salman wouldn’t hav been there.

        Toh the opening wud hav anyway been lower than EV

  10. RJ

    Manish – I know. Akki is facing a sorry state of affairs, but thats only because of his own undoing. Nobody else to blame…When he was going on such a smooth ride, why did he go back to his bumpy ways?

    But Thuppaki (without the boring moments, if made well) and OUATIM can really up his power. So he needs to concentrate and hire a PR manager, that makes sure, he picks the right subjects and at not so regular intervals. He is not a character artiste that can feature in every other movie.
    And yes apart from Akki fans nobody wants to see Akshay so many times a year..unless each one carries the vibe of a RR. Which is not possible.

    Phantom – your one liners are awesome man, very understated but hilarious!

    And yeah for a product JTHJ was, SRK should be sentenced to 12 hours (4shows) of JTHJ back to back!

    1. Manish

      Yup RJ , he himself is to blame for such state he has never let the momentum build up srk built the momentum well with 3 back to back BB s

      and see sallu he is perfect example he used to 3 or more movies an year bt now he cut down on the work , let excitement build and ensure that public get entertainment and even if there is slight 19-20 in movie it will work due to momentum he has build …

      Have to be honest .. sallu havent diaspoointment in last 4-5 movies . i came happy from theatre except ETT which i feel was boring at too many places and iam sure he will give me money’s worth with dabanng 2 as well …

      I hope akki sees and learn it ..

      Plus another thing is bollywood is nt rich with script writers to try out differnt things to come up differntly each time .. we have wohi 2-3 genre aur ussi mein movies banti hai …

      hopefully i get to see only 3 movies from akki next year and u r ryt nobody except fans wants to see an actor so many times in a single year

  11. iitianWay

    till first 80% of the time movie was going awesome… carrying all weakness easily..but in the last climax marriage scene … things beacme really monotonous and useless..and just left people wanting more …but anyway it was more hilarious and satisfying than ett anytime….

  12. naya khiladi

    agree with 2nd & 3rd points to some extent but disagree with all others.
    1. Akshay is very responsible to his fans. its just that other people associated with the movie dont keep up their work with Akki. Shirish dumbed down Joker and Himesh in K786 with his bad acting & nasal voice
    2. Songs were superhits but too much of himesh exposure and his nasal voice detracted general audience. being producer & storywriter not his cup of tea.
    3. Better presentation in terms of choreography, locations, promos would have made hell lot of difference. Look how UTV & SLB promoted RR
    4. Akki can carry off a role like this just as good as Salman with more energy. But Salman has better script, production asthaetic sense.

  13. iitianWay

    akki is not facing at all any sorry state of affairs….and will never face…ek do decision to upar neeche hote hain…aaj bhi sabse jyada paisa saal mein usi ke ante mein jaata hain…baaki ghanta bajate hain…apna.

  14. RJ

    iitianway – you should really change your name. you are an akshay fan, you cant be an iitian or even use their ways :D

    1. iitianWay

      dear RJ …u can reply with @iWay… :) if it puts pressure on u.. :)

  15. ranju

    I strongly believe, Akahay Kumar’s loyal fans dont watch his movie in theater. They wait for Pirated dvd to download free from internet or wait for good word of mouth. It is just not excepted that a superstars masala movie name as Khiladi open below 9 cr. Where a sunny leone movie opend around 8 cr. An average Emraan Hashmi film open 8-9 cr. Ranbir kapoor’s niche Barfi opened 8+ cr.

  16. The vikram Rathore

    lllol @ srk fans rabne billu n mniyaan m kya srk ka piyo tha jo opening ni lagi thi …20-30% opening huyi the rabne kihahaha srk fans talking jinka star 100 cr ke liy rohit sheety ki goad m ja baitha h aab haar kar ..hahaa…

  17. ady_koolz

    Read somewhere that akshay was laughing on floor while reading the script of K786 , does he have no script sense…Same with Aamir khan with talaash and SRK with JTHJ…They all were disappointing scripts which should never had been made let alone with such top stars…

  18. Aditya007

    ank_16n,
    As a Fan EveryOne wants to watch his Fvrt star Many times at Big Screen , but really General audience feel bored to face Same actor again & again with in 10 month of Spame with 5 movies, As a Superstar You should have release 1-2 movies per year for better Faith & Numbers.

    And about ,Thuppaki remake as I said before, It’ll rare Chances to release In Dec, because Shoot’ll be Start in Jan-Feb & during that Akshay’ll Shoot others Projects i.e BoSS+Promoyion ,OUTIAM2+Promotion , HF3 & Yes KKK5 . So very less Chances. & As A fan of him, dont want to release thuppaki in 2013.lets see what happen?

    1. ank_16n

      bro agree with most of points but
      As Akshay sir said in an interview that its not about money (i.e Blockbuster business) but Giving Employment in the Industry to Junior artist and spot boys….
      He even said in Bigg boss 6 with salman when salman said after khiladi chulbul will come Akshay sir said After that I will again come with S26…as i like to give 4 movies every year….

      I respect your views also…

      But i still think 9 cr 1st day is still not bad…..Just wait For weekend to be over u will see the collections will speak for themselves….
      And see 1-2 releases don’t mean they will give superhit every time…
      Salman in 2010 had 2 releases but Veer was still a flop…
      Similarly SRK has 2 releases after 1.5 years but we all know What 150 cr Movie Ra.one did at boxoffice…
      And Don2 was even less
      Same goes for JTHJ which came after 1 year…
      Aamir came after 3 years that too After 3 Idiots (202 cr)
      what happened it will not even collect 90 cr….
      So 1-2 releases will not make much difference…

      I feel 4 are enough ….If u delete Joker all 4 movies will give Profits….
      and as Action said Akshay sir had 2 releases in 2008 what happened ..!!!

      Every one has there views….
      So i also respect you views..!!

      As for Thupakki i can’t believe that After Aug with 4 months remaining Akshay won’t have any Release if Thupakki don’t release in December than It can’t release Before April 2014 which can’t be possible..!!

  19. Action

    In 2008,Akki released 2 films-Tashan & SIK.(not counting Jumbo as it’s an animated film)
    Though Tashan was a good film(IMO) it didn’t do well at the BO for various reasons mainly the multiplex issue but anticipation is there.
    SIK broke opening day,weekend and first week WW gross of OSO.
    Since there are only 2 release of Akki,the excitement level of fans and neutral people was high but Akki didn’t followed the formula of releasing less movies and he is suffering from 2009 onwards.
    Next year S26,OUATIM2,BOSS and Thuppakki is releasing.
    Whats the need of working with Tony D’souza again after Blue.
    I am sure about S26 and OUATIM2 success but Boss doesn’t sound good.If Boss turns out bad then It will affect Thuppakki.
    When you are working with good directors Neeraj,Milan,Murugadoss I dont see any need to work with D’souza.
    Nikhil,Shirish type of directors have harmed Akshay badly that too twice.No need to work with flop directors.
    Even if Nolan is directing Boss I think it is another Joker type of film which comes after some good films and ruins everything.
    OUATIM2 has to be marketed as an event film and Thuppakki can do huge business if release one year after OUATIM2.
    Sorry for the short comment.
    P.S. I am Akki fan since my childhood and will never miss any movie of Akki.

  20. diva

    I don’t think there is anything to be surprised here i mean apart from rowdy rathore [ First ever Solo blockbuster in his whole career ] which movie of akshay this year opened better than kareena’s heroine or sunny leone’s jism2?

    As i have said many timex akshay was Never a superstar. These are his records.

    After 20+ years akshay’s record in bollywood –

    ATBB- Zero

    BB- just Two out of first ever solo blockbuster this year in 2012 RR and other one in 2007 welcome.

    Highest grossers- Zero

    hrithik is also far ahead than akshay.

    Even sunny deol and govinda at their prime had ATBB BB and highest gossers and had better records.

    Even someone like Emraan hashmi has more solo or total blockbusters.

    and other actor having similar records is ajay devgn. Both akshay and ajay come in the same league.

  21. iitianWay

    Diva m’am ..jitna …suprstar akshay kumar…superstar akshay kumar ..super akshay kumar .. .aap use karti hain apne comment mein…utna to hard core akki fan bhi use nahin karta … :)
    keep it up!! .ham aapka last word “nahin” padte .. :)

  22. iitianWay

    sunne leone ki opening kee bhi limit hain..aakhir woh bhi insaan hain…usse aap 132 waali opening ki ummeed nahin karna ..bechaari mar jaayegi…
    ;)

    1. joker8546

      tension mai uske do masterpiece aur phool jaenge

  23. freezone

    Akshay’s n number of releases in an year is the main reason. And so many big releasses week after week. Also chances are that people are saving their money for Dabaang 2.

  24. sanjeev-dabangg2-beats-ETT

    Akki would and should continue making 4 movies each year. Why?
    1. He can’t compete with the khans no matter how many movies he might do. His real competition is with Hrithik, Ajay and Ranbir (as of now). And whether he does 2 or 4 movies, he can easily beat his contemporaries.
    2. Doing one movie in a year doesnt guarantee success (Look at JTHJ and Talaash)
    3. Doing four movies in a year doesnt guarantee failure (remember 2007..if movies are good they will work no matter how many movies you release)

    1. Manish

      who told u .. he was head to head with srk in 2006-2008 period wher SRK WAS AT HIS PEAK …

      so who said he cant compete with khans …

      talking abt sallu he is experiencing a run that no one except Amitabh ( he experienced such run for 15 years) has ever experienced so sallu is unmatched ryt now …

  25. rockie_Dabangg2

    K786 opening is all thanks to Over exposure of Akki.
    5 movies in a year is like tooooo much.

    2 movies … maxx 3 ….

    1. Manish

      rockie bhai year bhi kaha pehle 2 mahine to koi hulchul nahi thi …

      april mein HF 2 release hui and december mein his 5th movie … 9 mahine ke andar 5 baar on screen

      1. rockie_Dabangg2

        yeah … Manish bro …

        5 movies in 9 mnths…. its a lottt…
        I know Akki likes to do more movies … then he should work on more movies as a producer but less as actor.

        And this has been happening for so many years now …. I remember we discussing the same thing couple of years ago. :(

  26. Manish

    Akshay wd be fool to release thuppaki hindi version in last 4 months … there is no time .. it wd be like Khiladi 786 again …

    krish 2 takes diwali and dhoom 2 will take diwali and christmas slot … then surely in those 4 months there will be one movie from srk and one from sallu maybe 2 from srk .. so it will be sandwiched like khiladi did …

    ——————-

    1. sanjeev-dabangg2-beats-ETT

      Dont worry bro. Thuppaki won’t be sandwiched between kick and chenni express…as akki , allu n nadiadwal r frens, they will make a sandwich out of chennai express…
      people (srk fans) were saying Ajay is nothing without rohit shetty. now lets wait and see if Rohit Shetty is something without Ajay

  27. Serenzy

    Manish,

    S26 & OUATIMA are Sureshot Prestige Successes

    Thupakki Remake will be the Golden Entertainer

    So, Let One & All Kill BOSS bcz 1 Flop toh Banta hain Bhai.
    ;)
