Raees is the only film i liked of SRK after Mnik and CE this Decade , It had potential to be highest grosser of the year with good release date and solo release , after its first teaser the buzz was sky high, but after postponing it completely died and was quite low, then again the trailer made buzz quite good but clash killed it completely , i mean SRK had many good dates to release why would he release a movie for a sake of one national holiday and that too having a clash with another A Lister actor its all ego and poor Strategy by RCE.SRK lost a golden chance of having 200cr with poor Strategy and release , i watched Raees 4 times in cinema , last time i watched SRK movie more then 3 times was way back in 2008 RNBJ this tells how SRK movies lacks content, even Huge Hit CE was watchable only because of its comedy and entertainment,

It definitely had the chance to do 200+ if released solo in 3rd or 4th quarter. But in January 175+ max.

both Raees and Kaabil shot themselves in the foot with that clash. Raees would have done at least 165 on that release date, if only released without clash, and Kaabil would have done 120.

on a better release date, who knows?

Fought over one holiday. God knows why? Both SRK and RR lost their minds badly.


and paid for it dearly.

It was a very average film. Had it released solo on eid 2016/17 150cr was the upper limit nothing more. SRK was terrific. Amazing body language and dialogue delivery....yes he can pull off action, macho sort of roles but direction was botched up. Especially 2nd half.

This would have been case if Movie released solo during Jan period.

Actuals vs (Estimations)

Wed - 20.29 cr (26.5 cr)
Thur - 26.25 cr (34.5 cr)
Frida -13.10 cr (17.5 cr)
Satur -15.55 cr (20.5 cr)
Sund -17.25 cr (22.5 cr)

Weekend - 92 cr (121.5 cr)
First week (9 days) - 110.5 cr (148 cr)

2nd week -15.5 cr (24 cr)
Reamining - 3 cr (7 cr)

Acctuals - 128.77 cr
Estimations - 180 crore in Jan period. Chalo 180 na sahi atleast 165-170 crore was on cards.

Sultan release period (2016 5 days weekend EID) - 200+ lifetime.

Problem is SRK and his team are taken things lightly thinking SRK will pull it off. That didnt happened much with JHMS apart from reasonable opening but lifetime Disaster.

Glad that they announced Dwarf 2yrs advance. Lets see what SRK has more films to offer. Hope Dhoom4 rumors comes true.
