Dharmendra, Sunny Deol, and Bobby Deol starrer Yamla Pagla Deewana Phir Se is ready to clash with Rajkummar Rao and Shraddha Kapoor starrer ‘Stree’ on 31st August 2018. We can surely notice the buzz going around both the movies and they both have been one of the most awaited movies of this month. 31st of August would be a double treat for all the Bollywood fans as both of these movies are releasing together and so they would be clashing with each other.
Talking more about these movies, fans are excited for their release but still Rajkummar Rao and Shraddha Kapoor starrer ‘Stree’ has an upper hand if we consider the views on Youtube for ‘Stree’ has already received 31 million views. On the other hand, if we consider Dharmenfdra, Sunny Deol and Bobby Deol starrer film ‘Yamla Pagla Deewana Phir Se’, it has received 15 million views. So it is clear that as of now, ‘Stree’ has more hype than ‘Yamla Pagla Deewana Phir Se’.
Trade analyst Akshaye Rathi came up with the box office predictions of both the films and to Zoom, he told that ‘Stree’ will have an impact on people who enjoy quirky cinema. He also praised the acting skills of Rajkummar Rao and Shraddha Kapoor but he also said that it is not sure that their immense popularity can bring the audiences to watch this upcoming horror comedy film on theatre. Akshaye Rathi believes that box office collection of this film will depend on the merit of this film rather than the popularity of these two brilliant actors.
According to the reports of Filmibeat, he stated,
“Stree will largely have release in the urban centres. For an audience that enjoys quirky cinema will opt this one. Both Rajkummar and Shraddha are really good actors but I don’t know if anyone of them can draw audiences to the theatres only on the basis of their popularity. Ultimately, the merit of the film will decide its fate at the box-office.”
Trade analyst Akshaye Rathi also praised the film ‘Shaadi Mein Zaroor Aana’ which also featured Rajkummar Rao in the lead role. He described that how the elements involved in the film played a big role in making it a commercial success. So again he thinks that the Box office collection of this film completely depends on how entertaining and engaging this film will be. Akshaye Rathi said,
“There was another Rajkummar-starrer called Shaadi Mein Zaroor Aana that had all the commercial elements and did reasonably well at box office. So as far as Stree is concerned, it will all depend on how engaging and entertaining the film is.”
So talking about the predictions of both the upcoming movies, it is being said that Rajkummar Rao and Shraddha Kapoor starrer ‘Stree’ might earn around Rs 2.75 crores to Rs 3.50 crores on the very first day. On the other side, it is being said that Dharmendra, Sunny Deol and Bobby Deol starrer ‘Yamla Pagla Deewana Phir Se’ might collect a little more or less in the same figures on the very first day. So the box office predictions for both the films do not vary much and they both are expected to earn around the same figures on the very first day.
Yamla Pagla Deewana Phir Se is a comedy film and is the third instalment of the ‘Yamla Pagla Deewana’ franchise. The film is going to feature the father-sons trio and is expected to be quite refreshing. On the other hand, ‘Stree’ is a horror comedy film which is again a new concept and the Bollywood fans would surely going to experience something different this time. Well, these are the predictions but let’s see what happens when these two movies get released. If the films turn out to be extremely good, then definitely word of mouth can further make a difference in the box office collection.
