It’s been a while since Hrithik Roshan’s Super 30 has been released at the box office, and it has done pretty well for itself. The movie is about to touch the 140 crore mark & the question now is, has it entered the profit earning zone yet?
Let’s analyze how and what has been happening with the economics of the film. There have been reports about the film’s budget touching 125 crore mark (including P&A). But, the real question is where? Those who have seen the film know it’s not as rich on production value to make the budget soar so high.
The sets are not an SLB level magnificent, it’s shot in a small town, it literally has no big names apart from Hrithik Roshan, so how’s the 125 crore mark justified? Yes, the movie was delayed for quite a bit and was that the reason for this extra shoot in the expenditure?
Going by the promotional activities and the process of their shooting backed by the names it had, the budget, to all intents and purpose, should have been anywhere around 70 crores. Even if we include Hrithik’s fees in the range of top-most 20 crores, the makers had 50 crores to finish the shoot with the minimal P&A they did.
With the said budget, the movie would have entered the list of Koimoi’s Profitable Movies Of 2019 by now. If we go by our traditional formula of:
Collections – Budget = ROI & ROI/Budget*100 = ROI%, we’ll get a 100% of profit with its current collection of 140 crores. Also, this means it could’ve earned a HIT status in the table of Koimoi’s Bollywood Box Office Verdict and Collections 2019, which is currently just a PLUS.
As of now, it’s a big bold question mark about what were the lavish costs, that made it so expensive to eclipse the profits it could’ve made else wise. Let’s wait if the makers have something to comment about it. Stick to this space for a follow-up story if we’re clarified about anything.
