There are rumours that Sooryavanshi Radhe and Coolie No 1 could release on Diwali 2020. However, trade analyst Girish Johar suggests the clash wouldn’t be ideal.
The summer of 2020 was alleged to play witness to four big-budget movies releasing from March end to May. Sooryavanshi, ’83, Coolie and Radhe were expected to magnify the box office.
However, due to the Coronavirus-induced lockdown, producers were forced to postpone these releases. Although there’s no certainty on when these movies will release, trade analysts hope things returns to normalcy by Diwali and least three movies release on the occasion. However, trade analyst Girish Johar suggests that clashing three movies isn’t a perfect decision.
Talking to Pinkvilla, Johar said that rather than three movies, Bollywood should resort to a clash between two movies. He considers the very fact that the talk about possible new Diwali releases is true now’s merely conjectured for there’s nothing clear now.
Sooryavanshi, Radhe and Coolie No 1 to release on Diwali 2020? Trade analyst suggests clash not ideal
Having said that, he recommends three movies ideally shouldn’t clash on Diwali. “Practically there’s an opportunity of three big films approaching Diwali. it’s happened within the past where two to 3 films have released on Diwali,” he notes.
However, he adds that three big movies – like Sooryavanshi, Radhe and Coolie No 1 – “ideally doesn’t add up to clash. Two can come. Three may be a little too difficult to digest. Understand that the audiences also got to come, they have to possess that sort of cash to spend (on three movies),” he says.
If they clash, it’ll definitely be hurting (the collections of) one or the opposite movie. within the past, whichever is that the poorer film – in terms of content or public reception – falls much faster.
Entertainment has become an upscale affair. Once the reviews are out and once feedback comes, then they do not watch the bad film. They avoid the bad film and choose the higher film,” he observes.
Johar also points out that barring the high income earning stratum, nobody has that sort of cash immediately to spend on a movie. “I am sure this Diwali also will be diluted ,” he foresees.
Johar adds that people’s priority immediately would be essential goods like food, clothing, and shelter, and not pocket money on three movies. “At the top of the day movies are leisure and entertainment and not basic necessity,” he says.
The trade analyst feels, if things returns to normalcy, Sooryavanshi would be released earlier. If theatres reopen by July, the Akshay Kumar and Katrina Kaif starrer could ideally release as an Independence Day release. However, he feels that it all depends on the lockdown situation within the country.
