Padman box office prediction

Padman Box Office Prediction: Akshay Kumar’s Padman will be severely affected by the clash with Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmavat.

Akshay Kumar’s Padman will be the first big Bollywood release of 2018 along with Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s. Earlier it was clashing with Neeraj Pandey’s Aiyaary but the whole equation changed with the arrival of Padmavat on 25 Jan 2018. Now, Akshay Kumar’s film will clash with Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmavat and it is touted as one of the biggest box office clashes of the year. Padman may be one of the hottest films of the year but the clash with Padmavat will definitely affect its box office numbers. Let’s have a detailed look at Padman box office numbers.

Padman Box Office Prediction: Hype & Buzz

Akshay Kumar has been at the the top of his game in the last 2 to 3 years. His last five movies have crossed 100 crore mark at the box office. The trailer of the movie received good response from the critics and viewers. Have a look at the trailer:

The songs have been loved by music lovers. Everything is going good but still the movie hasn’t been able to create the buzz required for a big opening. While the expectations are big from Padman, there are certain issues, which the film has to face. Let’s have a look at the negatives with the film:

1) Padman is a niche film: The subject in itself is not appealing for the family audience. They will stay away from the film. Padman has a best chance in high-end metro cities where the audience is matured enough for a film like this.

2) Clash with Padmavat: Padman could have easily handled the clash with Neeraj Pandey’s Aiyaary. But the clash with Padmavat will severely affect it at the box office. Padmavat is expected to release have a big release. Moreover, Padmavat has a better chance as it s one of the most-talked about film of the last six months.

After these negatives, let’s have a look at few positives:

1) Akshay Kumar’s recent form: Akshay Kumar has been in tremendous form. Even his average films like Rustom, Jolly LLB 2 have managed to cross 100 crores. His fans would be expecting the same from Padman.

2) Low Budget: Padman looks like a low-budget film. Though, the official budget and economics number hasn’t been released yet, it seems that the budget of the movie is less than 50 crores (excluding Akshay Kumar’s fee). It means that the movie will be a hit at the box office if it manages to cross 70 to 75 crores. This is a big positive for this content driven film.

Padman Box Office Prediction: Opening And Lifetime

The movie will release on around 2500 screens in India. Keeping all above positives in mind, we are expecting Padman to take an average opening of around 8 crores. Padmvat, releasing on the same day, will take a huge opening. Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s film will take a huge lead in the first week. Padman will definiltely struggle to cross 100 crore mark.

As per our prediction, the lifetime collection of Padman will be around 80 crores. Padman is a content-driven film. Akshay Kumar’s star power is a big booster to the film. His star power will make sure that the film reaches to required audience. Without him, a film like Padman would have been a disaster at the box office.
