Craze For The Superstar
As we all know Rajinikanth has a huge fan following throughout the world and the craze for Kabali is humongous.
Kabali will pull in family audiences to theatres and that should contribute handsomely towards the box office collections. Since the first three days will be dominated by youngsters, families are expected to swarm the cinema halls in the second week, which is an added advantage.
Ranjith, in one of his interviews said Kabali has a strong storyline and that is the USP of the film. When the craze for Rajinikanth begins to fade, the story and narration will continue to attract moviegoers.
Kabali will be releasing in more than 1000 screens overseas. If it does well in places like UK and USA, it will become an instant hit since the currency value is high in those countries when compared to rupees.
Thunderous Opening Guaranteed
One shouldn't be surprised if Kabali runs to packed houses throughout the first week in India, given its impressive advance booking. Hence, a grand opening is guaranteed.
Soaring Ticket Prices
Irrespective of high ticket prices, theatre owners have witnessed tremendous response from fans as most of the theatres in Tamil Nadu have sold almost all their tickets for the first three days.
In other places too, tickets have been priced around 500 rupees and fans are least bothered about the rates as Rajinikanth's films can be enjoyed only once in 2 years or so.
More Than 4500 Screens
Kabali will release in more than 4500 screens throughout the world. Thanks to the huge screen count, the film should gather Crores of rupees in its opening weekend itself.
In USA alone, the Pa Ranjith directorial will release in 450 theatres, which is the highest for a Rajinikanth-starrer. Collections from the premiere shows alone are expected to touch the 1 Crore mark.
A Multilingual Product
Kabali will be releasing in Tamil, Telugu, Hindi and Malay languages. In Japan, the film will be released with Japanese subtitles and plans are on to showcase the movie in Chinese languages as well.
This should pull in more number of audiences into cinema halls. In Malaysia for instance, Rajinikanth enjoys a huge fan following and the Malay version of the movie is only expected to double the number of viewers.
