R Balki’s directorial venture, Shamitabh, is all set to hit the silver screen tomorrow. The film is expected to have a decent start. Shamitabh will have an average opening of approximately 30 – 40 % at the Box Office India. The film features Amitabh Bachchan, Dhanush and Akshara Haasan who marks her entry in Bollywood with this film. Shamitabh is one of the most anticipated films of the year.
Let’s see what the distributors have to say about the future reports of Shamitabh…
Rajesh Thadani, Multimedia Combines, Mumbai:
Shamitabh is all set to rock at the cinema halls. The film is expected to have a decent opening at the box office. Being R Balki’s film, it has a lot to offer. The combination of Amitabh Bachchan and Balki is indeed terrific and has given films like Paa and Cheeni Kum. Hence, there are a lot of expectations from Shamitabh.
Sanjay Ghai, Mukta Arts, Delhi-UP:
The buzz for Shamitabh is low in the Northern circuits. It is expected to have an opening of approximately Rs 2-3 crores at the box office. The film is expected to grow over the weekend. Shamitabh is expected to work since it has a novel subject.
Debashish Dey, Aum Moviez, West Bengal:
In Kolkata, the buzz for Shamitabh is good. The audience are looking forward to watch the terrific trio of R Balki, Amitabh Bachchan and Dhanush have to offer. The film has a fair chance to work at the box office. A positive word of mouth might help the film make money.
There are three other releases for this week – Bachpan Ek Dhokha, Hum Tum Dushman Dushman and Jai Jawaan Jai Kisaan. The films are likely to have poor openings at the box office.
