Lets begin with Zero. Its a big film, well I am taking big in a sense that it has longer running time, around 176 minutes. That's almost near to 3 hours. That is a huge backdrop. Seeing the premise of the movie, one can safely assume that it will be a dragged movie. Normally if we notice the trend of Shahrukh Khan movies, he was able to get good openings earlier but nowadays his movies are struggling to get a good openings. If we talk about second weekend trend of Shahrukh khan movies, then we all know that it drops somewhat around 70% every time. This trend will continue with zero too. Now the issue here is, that in the second week, we will see a mindless entertainment movie with an old song remixed and "Official" remake of horrible movie temper. Indian audience simply loves this combination, so tough for Zero to sustain after 1st week.
I am expecting for Zero to open at around 19-21 crores with uptrend on Saturday around 22-23 and it will sustain with a little struggle on Sunday with around 19-20 crores and there can be a downtrend on Monday with expected 6 crores and Christmas day will see a little jump of 7 crores with first week ending at 84-88 crores. After that movie can add another 20 or so to its lifetime.
I will try to post accurate scenario once I get proper confirmation from my sources.
Simbaa is kind of movie that Indian audience loves, I have seen tempar, and its pure garbage - but that is what Indian audience wants to see, so that will be a safe deal. Simbaa will open at similar levels or more 20-22 crores and may see up trend from there and can finish its business at 155 crores lifetime. Again, I will try to post it later after Zero.
