Watching Agneepath yesterday I remembered how that movie took a record opening, and then fell hugely on Friday, so most thought it was a flop. But then it rebounded nicely and went on to be a super hit.
I think Jan can sustain a movie well enough, especially if it's solo.
If YRF can present the movie to it's full potential, then it will do very well in Jan too. If Raees can make 130cr despite clash and mixed WOM, then think what this movie can do solo with good WOM.
But here's the issue, given HR's recent openings, will anyone give him a solo release? Also, can the director give a good WOM movie, especially considering his last few movies.
I think it'll do just fine. Show some incredible action beats in the trailer, some crazy dance battle, have a hit song or two, and it'll do huge on weekend itself.
