Pankaj Saha (Malda, West Bengal) : Can Housefull 4 become a Hit at Box Office as it’s getting very bad reviews from all corners? Will Housefull 4 recover it’s cost as it needs 180 Crores net to even break even as per all the Trade Analysts?
Answer : Housefull 4 will be a sure sort Hit. It should go past 200 Crores net mark also. Saaho (Hindi Version) also got the same sort of reviews but what was the ultimate result ? Actually, this people comes to social media like twitter just to take attention of you people. Frankly saying there is hardly four to five real critics and if they didn’t liked the film that’s their personal choice. But, that doesn’t mean audience will reject that film too. The words all corners only limits to social media like Twitter or Facebook. In ground reality no body cares what review critics has gave.
Coming back to your second question, I don’t know which Trade Analysts are saying 180 Crores net break-even is needed to save a movie like Housefull 4. On what basis they are saying? Do they really know how to judge a movie Hit or Flop? Is there any contract that has been made of 180 Crores Theatrical Distribution Rights alone for Housefull 4 in India? The problem for this so-called trade people is they are JACK OF ALL TRADES MASTER OF NONE. They watch one video, without knowing the base of that video, comes for debate and make one statement.
There is nothing to do with the budget (directly) for the movie to call Hit or Flop. If Budget is the criteria then Shahrukh Khan’s Happy New Year is ALL TIME BLOCKBUSTER even before it’s release. It’s the theatrical profit or loss which is counted. Housefull 4 should be able to recover it’s theatrical figures from Metros before the end of it’s run and in mass regions, it will generate profit easily. A place like Gujarat can become huge. As we saw last time Golmaal Again done the same in that place. Obviously, the movie has to be liked by the family audiences too. Comedy genre on Diwali festival with hardly any major clash is a win-win situation for everybody belongs to trade. 8 out of 10 times this type of movie has a solid chance to be a winner as per my knowledge. Overall, Housefull 4 will be profitable for most of the exhibitors.
