Controversy Factor - Padmaavat v Tiger Zinda Hai Comparison. [BOI]

+5 votes
The controversy factor of Padmaavati can be seen in the figures below. these are numbers for cities which had a clear run and were little affected by protests and violence over the Fri - Thu period. There were issues in Gurgaon and Lucknow on day one (Thursday) but after it went clear.

The figures match or better the Tiger Zinda Hai on Xmas week which pretty much tells how much hype was created as to match the Tiger Zinda Hai on Xmas week is insane. This was simply impossible if the hype and controversy was not there. Actually when the trailer launched of Padmaavat  it would be unthinkable for it to match Tiger Zinda which had a holiday week. Maybe a case could be made for Mumbai but definitely not North. The smaller the the center goes then Tiger Zinda Hai starts to lead as the media hype works less in smaller places. Places like Jalandhar and Amritsar are A centers but smaller compared to the rest on the list and these are the only ones where Tiger Zinda Hai has a comfortable lead.

The film may have not released at many places but these is no doubt that the controversy has pushed this film to a different level especially in the centers below which had a clear run. Below are the Fri - Thu collections in some cities of Padmaavat and Tiger Zinda Hai and they are like for like from the same cinemas.

Padmavati - 17.24 crore

Padmaavat - 8.93 crore

Wasn't I stating it from so long, BOI stamped it perfectly. Well many things have added for this BOAST:

  1. Huge Controversy standing for 1 whole Year, now will have SUPPORT.

  2. 3D/IMAX 3D - They pump up collection, especially when public is pushed through curosity.

  3. Before Release & now 1 week past the release - Timing of Controversy plus Support

  4. Rush of PRs spreading that WOM is Exceptional.

  5. OVERSEAS Business making round as if BIGGEST EVER Opening.

Even if PD genuinely earning this much, all this had made it's success a Big DOUBT

Bhansali mamu learnt this trick long ago...

He will press this power booster when ever his flicks buzz is low.

And showing the flick to media heads even Before CBFC, and using it as publicity ... Super he had mastered this art of publicity.
