Three movies are set for a release this Friday – John Day, Grand Masti and Vikram Bhatt’s Horror Story. Here’s the Box Office Prediction of John Day.
John Day, starring Naseeruddin Shah and Randeep Hooda is all set for a September 13th release. The first official trailer of the movie released on July 27th and has been in the news for it’s dark theme ever since. Such movies rarely tear the box office roof apart but they do get away with decent business, critical acclaim and a handful of awards.
The movie is being made by the same crew of A Wednesday and this will surely boost up the box office collections of the film. The story of the film has not been given away in the trailer but I’m guessing it’s about a man’s revenge and how he’s hellbent on ruining someone’s life.
The movie is expected to start slowly with around Rs 3-4 crores on the first day and it surely doesn’t seem like one of the flops and is expected to pick up its collections on Saturday and Sunday thanks to a positive word of mouth. It might garner around Rs 6-7 crores on the Saturday and will go upto Rs 8 Crores on a Sunday. With a total being around Rs 18 crores, John Day certainly looks like a movie which will capitalize on it’s dark theme and the off-beat plot but not on outrageous marketing or promotion.
