Almost 22 years after delivering a blockbuster in Gadar: Ek Prem Katha, Sunny Deol and Amisha Patel are back with Gadar 2 and the film has created quite a buzz. The film has collected 228.9 crores in five days of its release and its magic continues at the box office. Many are wondering whether the film will soon surpass the collection of Shah Rukh Khan’s blockbuster Pathan which has a domestic collection of Rs 543 crores. Film trade analyst Komal Nahata says Gadar 2 has almost a 95 percent chance of beating ‘Pathan’, while film trade expert Girish Johar feels it is too early to compare the new release with a film that has been running for two months. for a long time.
‘Gadar 2’ may surpass ‘Pathan’
Komal Nahata said Pathan has a “very strong” chance of defeating Gadar 2. Asked why the film is doing well despite mixed negative reviews, he told Hindustan Times, “I don’t think reviews matter. Reviews don’t determine whether a movie will be successful or not, and more often than not, the audience does. Word of mouth for Ghadar 2 was overwhelmingly positive, with 95 percent of critics failing to appreciate the way it drove crowds in theatres. In my opinion they are far from reality.
Seeing Ghadar 2 in theaters is quite historic
Akshay Rathi, the film’s promoter, also expressed the same enthusiasm. The film created a new record on Independence Day and collected 55 crores. Regarding this, he said, “Given the trajectory Gadar 2 is on, it is likely to beat any record, not just Pathan. He is currently in a very miserable condition. What you saw in theaters across India on August 15 was quite historic. What we saw on Tuesday was a veritable celebration not just for Ghadar 2, but for OMG 2, Jailor, Rocky and Rani’s love story, Oppenheimer and all the films currently hitting the theatres.
We will have to wait till the second weekend of ‘Gadar 2’
Producer and film business expert Girish Johar insists on waiting for one more weekend to speculate on the film’s chances of beating ‘Pathan’. He said, “The film has collected more than 225 crores in five days, which is a huge number. Today is a partial holiday (Nawroz) and there are no big releases around, but Pathan had a presence on the big screen. Pathan has done a business of around 500 crores and Gadar 2 will have to collect another 300 crores to beat it.
Gadar 2 is back with a bang
Explaining the reasons behind Ghadar 2’s amazing performance, he said, “At the end of the day, there is a lot of nostalgia for the film, the timing of the Independence Day release is right and the audience loves the film. Ghadar 2 also has an emotional connection, Sunny Deol is back with a bang and it’s a family film with a dose of patriotism, so it’s going strong.”
Ghadar can make 2 amazing records
Trade analyst Rohit Jaiswal said that ‘Pathan’ is likely to beat in Gadar 2. He had tweeted on Tuesday evening, “#Gadar2 has stolen the limelight from #Jawan by doing crazy numbers, likely to beat #Pathan’s Lifetime India biz..Jawan will be seen in Gadar 2 next month.” It’s hard to compete. The number will be less. Because consistently performing at such levels over a period of 30 days is never easy…#ShahRukhKhan.”
