    Action Jackson starring Ajay Devgn and Sonakshi Sinha is releasing on 5th December and it is definitely one of the most anticipated movie of this year, but in spite of that we believe it won't be able to beat Salman Khan's Kick or Shahrukh Khan's Happy New Year collection at Box Office. Here is why...

    Action Jackson has all the ingredients needed for a super hit movie. It has 'Action King' Ajay Devgn, Box Office King, Prabhu Deva, Box Office Queen Sonakshi Sinha and a whole lot of interesting aspects that are sure to make it a super successful movie. But in spite of all this there are some aspects where it fails, owing to which it won't be able to beat Kick or Happy New Year's Box Office collections.

    Ajay Devgn has worked super hard to gain the toed body for this movie, which is one of the main high points of Action Jackson, to see a toned hot Ajay do some killer moves and kick-ass sword fighting scenes. But while we enjoy the view on the big screen, the actor has worked a lot, he said, "Sword fighting has not been seen in Hindi films for many years. That is one of the main reasons why we thought of incorporating it, especially ninja sword fighting, which I think looks stylish on screen."

    Even Prabhu Deva sings praises of the actor, "Ajay sir has a two-and-a-half minute fight sequence where he will be sporting his bare body and showing his sword fighting moves. When I told Ajay sir about the sequence, he readily agreed. In fact, it was just for this scene that he lost 17 kilos."

    While there is so much to praise about the movie, here are 10 reasons why Ajay Devgn, Sonakshi Sinha starrer Action Jackson will fail to cross the Box Office collections of Kick and Happy New Year.

    No Khan

    We have to accept the fact that Khans' make the most money at Box Office. Irrespective of their movies being good or bad, they tend to run and mind crores and crores of money.


    The songs have not turned out that goo. In comparison to Kick and Happy New Year, where the songs turned out to be chart-burster. Romantic song of Ajay and Yami, Dhoom Dhaam was the most pathetic of them all.

    Screen Count

    Kick released in 5200 screens worldwide and Shahrukh's Happy New Year released in 6000 screens, while Action Jackson is releasing only 3600 screens worldwide.

    No Unique Promotions

    Promotions is the key to the success of the movie. Like how even though HNY was not a good movie, owing to it's brilliant promotional strategies the movie ended up minting crores at the Box Office, so with Action Jackson team doing nothing different, wonder how they plan to draw attention.


    Kick and Happy New Year got almost 2-3 weeks of good run at the Box Office as no other big movies released to challenge it, but Rajinikanth's Lingaa is releasing within a week of Action Jackson's release which will effect it's collection badly.

    No Festival In Sight

    Usually such big movies are lined up for festivals or government holidays so that more crowd rushes to the theatres but Action Jackson is releasing on a normal working holiday which might also effect the business.

    Poor Choice Of Villain

    An hero should have an equally commanding villain, only then will the fans love the movie as it will be super entertaining. In Action Jackson we have Anand Raj, a south baddie debuting, honestly speaking Prabhu Deva could have chosen for someone better. Poor choice of villain!


    The film's trailer didn't get as much views as Kick or Happy New Year, from which we can gauge how many people are looking forward to the movie.


    The film is getting a solo big release but Bhopal: A Prayer For Rain too is releasing on the same day In India. It had already released in US in November and people have loved the movie, so it may affect Action Jackson's Box Office Collection


    All in all, there is very less chance that Action Jackson can mint as much money a Kick or Happy New Year and only up on the release of the movie, will we know if we are right.
