Despite Smashing Collections, Krrish 3 Can’t Be A ‘Super-Hit’ Film

Krrish 3‘s being hailed as a blockbuster everywhere. And there surely is nothing wrong with the statement as the film emerged as the fastest joiner of the 200 crore club and is soon to defeat the box office numero uno Chennai Express‘ lifetime records. But then again from a business perspective, Krrish 3 ranks below many other films whose lifetime incomes stand below its magnanimous number.

Despite the hefty earning at the box office, the film isn’t even a hit yet. Being reportedly made on a lavish budget of 115-120 crores, the film will need 230-240 crores at the box office to become just a ‘hit’.

While 230 crores won’t be a difficult mark to cross given its pace, to tread into the superhit zone will nearly be impossible for the film. The film needs a lifetime amount of 285+ crores at the domestic box office to be declared a superhit. Given that Ramleela is releasing this week, Krrish 3 will invariably face screen crunch that will make the mark even more difficult to attain.

The following week after Ramleela will see the release of Singh Saab The Great that will claim its single screen audiences. Later, Gori Tere Pyaar Mein! and Ramleela will battle it out at the multiplexes. The film won’t diminish starkly but will dwindle off soon, way before reaching even near the Superhit mark.

Definitely the film is one of the most stellar box office performers this month. Fastest 200 crores, smooth 100 crores and perhaps soon to be the highest collection ever raked by a Bollywood film in the domestic circuit, the film in all likelihood will fail to be a superhit in terms of business.

    KoiMoi is it true that Krrish 3 figures have manipulated their figures to avoid thrashing by the media ?
    Sources say they’ve asked exhibitors not to reveal the orignal figures & also the difference between BOI & Producer’s figures exceeds a mind twisting <59 crores.
    How is this possible for any movie ?
    Please revert to my comment.

      First of all u need some mental treatment bcz C.E budget was not 130cr, C.E budget was only 70cr. thats why C.E is an all time blockbuster, Krrish3 budget is about 120-130cr , so K3 has to earn minimum 250-260cr for HIT category , and needs 350cr for superhit….. duffer

    senseless post… don’t know from where these people get these disgusting calculations..

    and it is also confirmed..
    whatever they say.. am happy dat a good movie in krrish 3 did such super business.

    so u want to say that if a movie is made of a 10 crore budget and earns 30 crores it is a super hit movie,,,but when a big budget movie like krrish 3 which is made on a 100-115 crore budget earns 230 crore ,which is more than 100 crore profit, it is still not a superhit,,,,,what a deduction!!!

    The Fact is Krissh 3 has not made as much as they declare here but who cares. Same goes with CE – they never broke the record of Ek Tha Tiger first day opening but this site says they did. On the whole if public wants to watch movie they will go regardless of what the figures are and what the critics say so never take bollywood figures seriously.

    Koimoi,Does’nt even know how to Calculate now.

    How can you Ignore the 10 Endorsements(like TataMotors,DelMonte IceCream,Pens,etc) that are strung throughout the Movie???

    If you take that into account(Approx 20 Crores Earnings from that);Then Krish 3 has Already earned Rs 242 Crores in India(before we take into account International Collections).

    Thats enough for this Film to become a Super-Hit!!!

    Please calculate properly first!

      only count theatre collection to measure a film hit or flop.
      satelite and dvd rights music rights and endorsment revenue is considered besharam may be in blockbuster status
