Well, the industry is all set to witness a big box office war in this week. Mohanlal starrer Puli Murugan and Mammootty starrer Thoppil Joppan are ready for a face-off and in all probabilities, both the films would be releasing on October 7, 2016.
Box office wars of superstar films have always been an
interesting topic to follow. But, is it really good for the
industry, when the films of both the Big M's release on the same
day? Here, we list a few reasons for why the war is not good for
the industry. Read on..
Affect The Initial Collections
Both the films are high on expectations and since both of them
have superstars in the lead roles, the industry is surely expecting
huge initials for both the movies. Since both the films are
releasing on the same date, there might be a divide on the
Number Of Releasing Centres
Earlier, Puli Murugan was expected to have a big
release, now it has been confined to 165 theatres in Kerala.
Thoppil Joppan would also be released in a good number of
theatres. So, both the films are unable to go for a big release, as
Affecting Other Movies
If two big movies release on the same day, the major chunk of
theatres would surely be allotted to both the movies, especially
when the movies under consideration are superstar movies. This in
turn would surely affect the run of small movies as well as the
other movies, which are doing a decent business at the box
Release of superstar movies on the very same day would pave way
for unnecessary fan fights, which definitely is not a good one for
the industry, as well as the stars in concern.
Effects Of Intentional Degrading
Fan fights can't be avoided and the chances of intentional
degrading would be higher. Even if both the films turn out to be
good, there are chances for the opposite groups to degrade the
other star's movies, which in turn would adversely affect the
Puli Murugan has been directed by Vysakh and the film
has Mohanlal in the role of a hunter. The film has been made under
a huge budget and the movie is expected to release in around 165
theatres in Kerala.
On the other hand, Mammootty starrer Thoppil Joppan has
been directed by Johny Antony. Mammootty will be seen in the role
of an Achayan, once again, through this film. The film is also in
the lines of a mass entertainer.
We would like to wish both the films all the very best and we hope that both the films would turn out to be big hits at the box office.
