Another film from Golmaal series has released today. Yes, we are talking about Golmaal Again which created a lot of buzz before its release. Since all the previous films of the Golmaal series were successful at the box office so the expectations from Golmaal Again are very high. Seeing the advance booking report of the film, one can expect Golmaal Again first day collection to be really impressive and put up decent numbers.

Poor Box Office Collection of movies in 2017

This year, Box office has not witnessed many good Bollywood films so the expectations from every new release remain high especially when it stars famous actors. First Day Collection is a very important figure as it decides the fate of the entire film. Some of the big budget films which have managed to perform well at the box office in 2017 are Bahubali, Kaabil, Raees, TEPK, and Judwaa 2.

Many Movies from Big Directors and Big stars have flopped or disappointed at the box office. JHMS & Tubelight are two such films. We hope Golmaal Again doesn’t fall in this category.

Effect of Competition from Secret Superstar

Aamir Khan produced Secret Superstar released yesterday and is seen as a big competitor of Golmaal Again. Also, the holdover release Judwaa 2 is also doing well at the box office. So, the first day of Golmaal Again is very crucial and thereafter the word of mouth would decide the future of the film. Since Secret Superstar is already released on the eve of Diwali so it has got one more day, Friday to receive positive word of mouth.

Let’s analyze how Golmaal Again should open. We will take a look at the previous movies in the series.
