Gorilla’s WOM: Dabangg 2 is better than Dabangg
Gorilla | December 23, 2012, 12:49 PM | 12 comments | 0 views

Dabangg2 came with lots of hype, hoopla and anticipation. The voices of 200Cr, 400Cr etc were coming from all quarters.

WOM: Dabangg2 is carrying a good report though it is lower than Dabangg. The WOM is at par with Bodyguard or Ek Tha Tiger. Those who are going expecting “Dabangg” brand of entertainment are liking it.
Salman’s act is getting appreciation though not as much as Wanted or Dabangg as those films had novelty factor. Here Salman is repeating himself. Dabangg2 is also getting compared with Dabangg and here the sequel has slight edge in its favor but not a decisive edge. All in all Dabangg2 is a good “predictable” masala entertainer and is true to its brand.

BO Verdict: Dabangg2 will collect Rs 140-145 Cr and will emerge a super hit. The Christmas holiday on Dec 25 will help the business by Rs 5 Cr. Three clean week is also a good news and may add few more crores.

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!

    140 is superhit? hila

  2. Roy

    Your title says: “dabangg-2-is-better-than-dabangg”

    If it is better, then you are only expecting around 150? something better than dabangg should cross 200 cr+ now

    “If it is better, then you are only expecting around 150? something better than dabangg should cross 200 cr+ now”

    Roy – As is said…Dabangg2 is better but slightly better but not a lot better. This basically means two things – While none will get disappointed, the complete nod will not be there.
    This will mean that movie will be accepted but not to an extent Dabangg, which had novelty factor, was accepted.

    @Vikram Rathore – Tukka wo lagaate hain jinko kuch nahin maloom…..these WOM assessment cannot be done by Tukka….there is a method to it. This method limits bias and excludes extreme reactions.

    My BO verdict is actually mine and based on past performance of previous films and WOM of the current films.

    The above methods are reasonably accurate most of the times. JTHJ, SOS were bang on. Few movies miss the BO verdict (95% accuracy) but WOM assessment has always been bang on (100%).

    Sanjeev – Reaching Rs 140 Cr can also be called blockbuster… actually not fussy and do not understand on what basis films are rated. All ratings seems to change with time and movies.
    Important thing here is to understand that Dabangg2 is neither a 200Cr movie, not a just Rs 100Cr… is somewhere in the middle.

    I think it won’t even reach 140 cr seeing the Saturday Drop..!!

    This WOM prediction is again bang on. Thanks to all my friends and community members who provided correct feedback to me to project a total that is closer to reality.

    Congrats Gorilla.

    I had Predicted 160+[Ending at ~170cr].

    Thanks for pointing it out Roy … :)

    So K786 prediction is off by almost 38-40 cr … infact for ETT the prediction was off only by 27cr.

    So another “TUKKA” goes out of the window…. :D
