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.

  1. OK, now a big budget film like Krrish 3 cannot be judged by its budget.
    Ra.One made 120 crores against a 125 crores budget but was declared hit.
    Box office Verdict is given only on how much distributors earn, not producers.
    Krrish 3 is all time blockbuster. Real collections of Krrish 3 till wednesday is 198 crores. It is chasing 218 crores of CE.
    Oh, and I am a SRK fan so you may be sure there is no bias.

  2. From Day One You Guys are With such Amazing Theories

    with This logic Mukesh Ambani would have been least profitable businessperson….

    Come On have a heart If some one spend 1 Lakhs and made profit of 2 Lakhs can not be compared to Some one who made a profit of 130-150 CRORES… Which is TOOOOOO Much..
    this is NOT just mathematics It’s Common Sense; Just Respect That..

  3. What a big joke!!!

    Ra1 budget 125cr
    collection 120cr

    Don2 budget 80cr

    Dabangg2 budget 75cr
    collection 148cr

    and indicine already k3 as ATBB

  4. sir i don’t agree with you collection is not everything for a film if i make a film of 1000 crore ant the movie collects 800 crores which will be record but still u will say the film will be flop i think u need to think before making this kind of statements just don’t see how much was invested and how much recovered see ow much it collected in how many screens in how many days that’s makes a film hit super hit or blockbuster not the return of investment

  5. if we take someone`s favour for long time then it is awkward that other person becomes more powerful. i mean koimoi had supported khans from very long time,if hrithik will give more 3 films like krrish 3 then koimoi will start to take favour of hrithik.
