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 collections.
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 expected.
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 office.
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 movies.
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.
