We all know how bad things have went for SRK in the second half of this decade. Specially with JHMS and ZERO, two movies which have utterly obliterated his image among moviegoers. So the question here is, what could he have done differently? Now you can say that make those movie good but then again, it's not like that, i personally have a theory or a thought more like it, about what SRK could've done instead.
We saw how much time SRK literally wasted on JHMS and how much time and money it took to make a movie like Zero, and it resulted in results in negative magnitude. So here's what i thought.
If SRK had so much time and money to spend on producing JHMS, Zero, he could've actually given G One a chance instead. Before you guys go what? Hear me out fully.
Yeah Ra One was a mess but then again, so were JHMS and ZERO, and dare i say, they were actually bigger mess. Now remember the time of Ra One how it had the best VFX seen in Bollywood ever, how it was hyped to no end, how it opened at ticket window and although it didn't actually worked out well, it was an attempt.
Now come to 2016-2017 period, Superhero genre is severly lacking in Bollywood, 2016 just saw a mediocrity named Flying Jatt, that the makers even thought of making it shows how dire condition of SH genre is in Bollywood. Now come SRK, he decides to give time and money not to JHMS or Zero, but to sequel of his SH movie, but this time he wants to do it right.
So he decides to work better story this time and also to make it bigger and better. And i do think that with better technology and different approach, maybe audience would've given him another shot, Worst case scenario too it wouldn't have stunk like Zero
I think with better technology, and say better trailer and a product which actually looked worthy of 250-300 crs budget, people would have actually been excited for it.
Think about it, Bollywood lacks this, big movies, big enough movies which are worth your ticket prices, movies that look big, movies that feel big, movies which are not just a movie, but a spectacle. And mind you, A big budget action spectacle would attract more audience than whatever JHMS and Zero were even if previous installment was Ra One.
Now we have seen that aside from the fact that JHMS and ZERO were rejected, they were unable to get an opening worthy of a Superstar, now a movie with massive scale and promise like G One, now this beast would ooen big, and not only open big, it would open bigger than what JHMS, ZERO did in their lifetime.
Think about it, a movie which if done right would've brought SRK right on the pedestal and even if it had gone wrong again, it still in my personal opinion couldn't have gone as bad as JHMS and ZERO.
So just think about it guys, removing all bad feelings you may have about Ra One at this point and think and say, if SRK had to spend years and 250-350 crs on movies, wouldn't it have been better to soend them on a G One rather than a JHMS or a ZERO..??
Shoot your opinion guys.
