• Raazi is a box-office winner and will keep all concerned very happy. The story, script, direction and, of course, Alia Bhatt, will ensure that people flock to the cinemas.

  • Omertà is too class-appealing to make any impact at the box-office. It will, therefore, flop at the turnstiles. It has some hope in the very high-end multiplexes, that too, just in the first weekend.

  • …a beautifully shot and beautifully made human drama with some sterling performances. But it has limited appeal at the box-office because of the way in which it has been treated. Its difficult English title and lack of recognisable faces will further restrict its commercial chances. The film will do well in select high-end multiplexes of a few cities only. It will, however, win a lot of critical acclaim.

  • October has class appeal but it has enough soul to touch many hearts and reach the winning post at the box-office, more so because its entire investment (cost of production plus cost of promotion, publicity and marketing) has been recovered completely from non-theatrical sources (satellite, digital, audio rights). Public reports will vary from boring to very sensitive but it will appeal to the target audience and do fair business at the ticket windows in the final tally. It may have started slow but collections will pick up, especially in good multiplexes and big cities. Business in small centres and mass-frequented single-screen cinemas as also in lesser multiplexes will, of course, be very dull.

  • Missing has very limited appeal and given its low promotion and slow start, it will go largely unnoticed.

  • Blackmail is an intelligent and well-made film for the class audiences only but it will not be able to do much at the box-office because of low promotion and its implausible story.

  • Baaghi 2 has abun­dant action but lacks in other ingredients of an entertainer. It has taken a flying start (because of great action, fantastic promotion and the Good Friday holiday) and will, therefore, keep its distributors safe. The producer, of course, has made a huge profit under-production.

  • On the whole, Dil Juunglee will spell disaster at the box-office because it is devoid of entertainment or novelty.

  • 3 Storeys is a well-made film which boasts of fine performances by the lead actors, but the fact remains that its commercial prospects are very weak.

  • Pari should’ve been more entertaining and less confusing. Although it has some terrifying scenes and a couple of heartwarming ones, those are simply not enough. The film will not be able to reach even the average mark mainly because it does not leave the audience satisfied. It will entail losses.
