Pre Release Expectations:
Gabbar is back is releasing with very high expectations from the trade .
It is expected that it should beat the opening day records of Roy and also hollywood movies Fast and Furious and
Avengers to have the highest opening of 2015.
First day expectations is a minimum of Rs 10-12 Crore.
All the movies including Baby who have worked till now in 2015 have only been successes only at big cities and multiplexes and this has caused enormous losses to small cities distributors and exhibitors.
There are no universal successes in 2015 and the best hope they have is that Gabbar is back should be successful and will ensure that Bollywood makes universal movies and doesn't restrict itself to niches.
