This week's Friday will be fascinating for moviegoers because two separate films, Jhund and The Batman, will be launched in theatres. While the former stars the legendary 'Mahanayak' Amitabh Bachchan, the latter is a superhero film that has risen in popularity in India over the years. Despite the fact that neither has had a massive marketing campaign hyping its arrival, the contrast will be noticeable in how they debut at the box office.
Jhund is a fun social sports drama that will rely totally on favorable word of mouth. Apart from Big B, there are no well-known names in the film, therefore it will be up to him to attract people. The film's trailer is merely adequate, and while it provides some insight into what to expect, it is ultimately the finished product that will speak for itself. As a result, the opening figure for Friday is projected to be around ₹2-3 crores.
The Batman is a huge and true big-screen spectacle that should draw people solely based on genre. As a result, this specific superhero franchise hasn't done particularly well in the past. However, the post-Avengers market in India has exploded in recent years, as evidenced by the fast success of other such films. As a result, The Batman is looking at a double-digit opening, which would be extremely terrific.
