There is only a week’s window left for Ranbir Kapoor starrer Besharam to hit screens. Given that the actor by virtue of his recent films, had piled on to the list of powerful stars of the industry, there are obviously high expectations pining on the film. Ranbir’s last screen outing with Deepika Padukone still lingers its delicate flavor. Being one of the year’s most celebrated earners at both the domestic box office and overseas circuits, Besharam has a tough barrier to break if Ranbir intends to topple his own box office records.

Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani gained a lot of public attention because of the ex-es factor, the same which had worked for Salman Khan starrer Ek Tha Tiger. The Ranbir Kapoor-Deepika Padukone’s irresistible chemistry was quite a crowd puller! However, Besharam despite no such highlight point might work for the combined presence of the Kapoor brethren.

The opening day collections Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani was a swell, the highest recorded this year before Chennai Express smashed the records created by the film. On its opening day, the film made 19.45 crores at the domestic box office – a daunting record Besharam is looking to supersede. This is Ranbir’s first film to have a worldwide release mid-week. Confirming the news, director Abhinav Kashyap said that as most people have a holiday on October 2 (which is Mahatma Gandhi’s birthday), they decided to release the film on that day, so as to ensure maximum audience.

It can also be expected that the film makes it way into the top 5 films which have recorded the highest opening day collections at the box office. Though Chennai Express reigns the highest opening day income ever of 33.10 crores, the film being a national holiday release can be expected to earn in a higher bracket given that the last watchable release at the box office Grand Masti would have lost its steam by then. Though it is Ranbir’s YJHD which ranks as the 2nd highest opening day collections of 2013, followed by Race 2 and Grand Masti, but there is solid chance Besharam might find a space for itself amongst the year’s most enthralling beginnings at the box office.

Abhinav Kashyap’s last film Dabangg being high on star value with Salman Khan portraying the iconic role of Chulbul Pandey made a heavy 1st day run of 14.50 crores – another heavy challenge Besharam is looking to surpass in terms of box office numbers.

There are many factors which can possibly work in favor of Besharam – Ranbir’s star value, Abhinav Kashyap’s direction, an all-in-all masala entertainer with a judicious fun value to it. The favorable box office air of no releases plus a public holiday all works in its favor. However, as director Abhinav Kashyap claims, content is the boss of commercial cinema; the overall value of Besharam will depend on the great execution of its interesting story. However, it is only for time to prove whether the film can live up to the box office expectations one is hoping from it!

  1. N O ! ranbir kapoor YJHD has big opening becoz of deepika , not for alone himself , and besharam is already a flop , the songs, everything

  2. Super Flop is written all over the internet. YHHD got hit because of Deepika and Adita Roy Kapoor. Adita roy kapoor gave the blockbuster like aashiqui 2. Besharam will be super flop.

  3. 100 crs. might be a possibility. But, it will not be able to break YJHD records. I think maximum collections will be around 80-90 crs range. But, i am not 100% correct.

  4. YJHD rubbish movie. besharam can not cross 100cr. same acting same movie.anibhav kashup diid same thing in this movie. barfi n rockstar nice movies of ranbir. trailer of besharam was bakvaaaaasssss.

  5. I think film has not a powerful and standard script, also Phata Poster Nikla Hero has way better music than Besharam. 1 strong reason for success of YJHD was its good music, that Besharam does not has.

  6. It will definitely cross 100+ but it would not cross YHPD becoz this is not a family entertainer…it just appealing youth only…

  7. Good joke. Besharam will not get lifetime collections of what YJHD got in its first weekend. YJHD is a hit b’coz Deepika was in it, and not b’coz of Ranbir alone.

  8. I agree with Nilam . We had watched YJHD for couple with Deepika also songs were already hit but always same things not happen . Lead actress is new and she has not fan following . songs is average but it will get solo BO till 2nd week thus 100cr might be but not above . RK has not such stardom equal with Khans for running movie by themselves however the script .

    According to trailer it is very light type of jokes and comedy

  9. abe lala ki jaan ”

    this movie on lost for Abhinav Kashyap ,because the movie over acting for ranbeer kapoor, .not good of successes for this movie .

  10. it’s not about who made Abhinav Kashyap. it’s about what he can do.when Dabangg hit screens he was the most wanted director in B town. to his brother,abhinav came this far on his talent and salman was lucky to have him. that means RK is the lucky one this time. so let’s see can he run just after born. sad to see such a good actor who did great movies like barfi and rockstar doing this kind of cinema.

  11. the man who did swerdesh,devdas,my name is khan is doing chennai express. the boy who did barfi and rockstar did YJHD and now besharam. the man who did masthi,housefull is doing great cinema like madras cafe. let’s pray for the man who did 3 idiots and thare sameen par to don’t change his cinema.and last but not the list the man who did Dabangg, just keep doing what u doing

  12. Ranbir Kapoor looks stupid in the trailor . By chance YJHD did good business because of Deepika . Ranbir kapoor is still a kid and looks odd on the screen .Has a very long way to go. The guy is so skinny like a stick, should put on some weight and muscles .

  13. he made yjhd a blockbuster on his shoulder. deepika was a total flop at that time. with ranbir’s help her carrer was revived. so when he can singlehandedly make yjhd a blockbuster opp a flop actress deepika they why can’t besharam opposite a newcomer
