Box Office: Gabbar is Back Buzz, Budget and Economics.

Gabbar is Back Economics

Gabbar is Back Budget: 72 Crores (inclusive of print s and advertising)

60 Crore Production Budget and 12 Crores prints and advertising costs

Co producer Viacom has sold the satellite rights for Rs 28 Crore and has sold the music and overseas rights for Rs 13 Crore.

India Theatrical rights have been sold by Viacom to Ajay devgan's close associate  Kumar Mangat who is also a producer at a price of Rs 42 Crore.

The rights have been sold to Kumar Mangat as part of a combo deal including the movie Dharam Sankat where the cost of Gabbar is Back is 35 Crore and Dharam Sankat is 7 Crore.

Daharam Sankat has already released and flopped and has lost Kumar Mangat roughly 2 Crores.

Gabbar is Back will be profitable it fetches a distributor share of Rs 37 Crore to Kumar mangat which means that it should do a business of Rs 75 Crore at a minimum in India.

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.

  1. It is an absolutely dangerous and powerful film. Dangerous for the corrupt . Just imagine if after watching the well made film some in the audience is carried away by the message conveyed by their favourite hero and take to vigilantism in a violent way. Or can it be called communism? Is Gabbar a communist? Is Gabbar another name for communism or naxalizm? I think there was a time when a name inspired fear in the minds of the corrupt and the rich. The name was of a famous don.

    I loved the well enacted, tautly directed, tightly edited film. But I wonder what will happen if we take to anarchy and violence to correct all problems.
    Arvind Kejriwal says doing dharna is the only way. He didn't like the way Akki tackles the problem of corruption.

    I think the only way is the Gandhian way to deal with any problem politically. Or is it?

    The film is food for thought.

    Gabbar is back is an excellent movie and had the potential to do a business of 200 crores to 250 crores. But it is all because of Superstar Akshay Kumar's fault. In the last six months Akki was seen everywhere in a salt and pepper, greying hair, white beard look. The Indian audiences will reject such an ageing star. Baby and now Gabbar is Back have done good business because of the story, editing and direction and word of mouth. Not because of Akshay Kumar however good he was in the movie. I don’t understand why a handsome, fit and a young looking superstar like Akki would want to throw it all away by going ahead and donning the old man look. Akki is much fitter and younger looking than some of the new, young stars on the horizon. A lot of success of a superstar depends on how he presents himself.
    So why is he doing this? Does he not care for himself, his producers, his distributors, his financiers, the studios and above all fans like us who add to his success?
    Akshay Kumar is stupid to have done what he did. To be seen in as an old man. Now the audiences have a perception of him as an old haggard man. Not the stud that was Superstar Akshay Kumar. That is the reason that Baby and Gabbar is Back could not bring in the desired first weekend collection which the other young looking Khans, Roshans and Devgans bring in. Akshay Kumar himself has written the epitaph of his superstardom.
    It might be too late to change his looks and look younger. I am sure it would not be difficult for him at all , as he is one of our fit and young looking actors.But it could be too late as he was seen often for the last six months in the old and haggard look.
