The only two Bollywood movies that have done well so far in 2022 are The Kashmir Files And Gangubai Kathiawadi, Incidentally, both were unconventional films. While the former was a docudrama on the Kashmir genocide and did not exactly follow the quintessential Bollywood dictates, the latter was a story of a prostitute, which was not a universal theme, but claimed to be a quintessentially grand narrative by Sanjay Leela Bhansali. The former entered Rs. 200 crore club, while the latter scored a big century, but apart from these two films, it has all been largely sad and depressing.
This is what makes this Friday’s twin release, maze 2 And dhakadi, all the more exciting. What is working for them is the sheer awareness factor. Unlike many other releases, there’s at least one awareness factor to them. Moreover, both the promotion and marketing are at peak at the right time. It has also been very fitting, because they have played to their strength. maze 2 It is a family film and is being projected as a complete entertainer. On the other end, dhakadi She has her eye on people who love Hollywood-style entertainment.
Consequently, the combined collection of both the films should be close to Rs. 15 crores, which will make it the best Friday ever for a Bollywood release. Biggest opener ever from bollywood Bachchan Pandey, which started Rs. between 13.25 crore and maze 2 And dhakadi This number should be comfortably exceeded.
Of course, the Kartik Aaryan starrer is expected to do more of the heavy lifting as double-digit starts are on the cards. The actor has done a great job of letting people know about the arrival of his film and it has to be counted. On the other hand, Kangana Ranaut has also left no stone unturned to keep dhakadi In the news, and for the right reasons, that should allow openings of more than Rs. 4 crores. As long as both the films manage to hit these milestones as well, it would be great for Bollywood to move ahead again and then in the days to come.
