Kalki 2898 AD: A Box Office Juggernaut Marches On

Posted : July 13, 2024 at 3:07 pm IST by ManaTeluguMovies

Prabhas’s sci-fi extravaganza, “Kalki 2898 AD,” directed by Nag Ashwin, continues its relentless march towards the coveted 1 billion rupee mark at the global box office. Despite facing competition from the recently released “Indian 2,” trade analysts remain confident that “Kalki 2898 AD” will achieve this milestone by the end of its theatrical run. However, the film’s true dominance lies in its record-breaking performance in the North American market.

“Kalki 2898 AD” opened to positive reviews, fueled by immense pre-release hype. Record-breaking pre-sales figures abroad translated into a phenomenal first 10 days at the box office. The film’s momentum hasn’t slowed down, with the makers officially announcing that it has surpassed a gross of $17 million and counting. This translates to a current gross of $17,031,645, with decent collections expected for the upcoming weekend as well.

“Kalki 2898 AD” has etched its name in history by becoming the first South Indian film (excluding “Baahubali 2”) to achieve such a remarkable feat in North America. “Baahubali 2” is a special case due to the significant collections garnered by its Hindi version. This “Non-Baahubali 2” record has sent Prabhas’s fans into a frenzy, eagerly anticipating the sequel.

The film leaves the audience wanting more, as it hints at a grander sequel. Part 2 will see Prabhas reprise his role as Bhairava, while Amitabh Bachchan returns as the enigmatic Ashwatthama. Kamal Haasan’s villainous Supreme Yashkin is expected to play a pivotal role once again, with Deepika Padukone likely reprising her role as Sumathi. Director Nag Ashwin has revealed that the second part will delve deeper into the unexplored 60% of the story, promising an even more action-packed and dramatic experience.

With a reported budget exceeding 600 crores, courtesy of producer Ashwini Dutt, “Kalki 2898 AD” represents a significant financial investment. However, the film’s robust performance, particularly in the North American market, suggests that it is well on its way to becoming a resounding commercial success. As the film continues its theatrical run, all eyes are on whether it can achieve the coveted 1 billion rupee mark and solidify its position as a landmark achievement in Indian cinema.

Where Does Akshay Kumar Go From Here?

Posted : July 15, 2024 at 12:27 pm IST by ManaTeluguMovies

Akshay Kumar, a titan of Hindi cinema for over three decades and fondly nicknamed “Khiladi” (Player), has consistently captivated audiences with his comedic flair and action prowess. He has skillfully balanced these genres, establishing a dedicated fanbase across both. Prior to the COVID-19 lockdown, Kumar enjoyed a golden period with critically acclaimed message-driven films and patriotic narratives, including “Airlift,” “Padman,” and “Kesari.” These projects resonated deeply with viewers, solidifying his position as a bankable star.

However, the post-lockdown landscape appears to have presented a challenge for Kumar. While “Sooryavanshi” achieved significant success, a string of subsequent releases failed to replicate that achievement. This has sparked a conversation around a potential decline in his box office performance.

Kumar’s reputation for completing films swiftly and delivering a high volume of projects (often 3-4 per year) may have inadvertently contributed to a saturation effect. Films like “Bell Bottom,” “Bachchan Pandey,” “Samrat Prithviraj,” and “Raksha Bandhan” all underperformed commercially. This trend continued with recent releases like “Cutputli,” “Ram Setu,” and “Selfie,” further jeopardizing his box office dominance.

His latest offering, “Sarfira,” opened with a meager 4 crore collection, a stark contrast to his past success delivering 100 crore grossing films with apparent ease. These box office numbers paint a concerning picture for an actor who has consistently commanded high box office value.

Even “Mission Raniganj” and “Selfie,” with opening days of 3.8 crores and 4.2 crores respectively, failed to meet commercial expectations. “Bade Miyan Chote Miyan,” while grossing 31 crores, benefitted significantly from its multi-starrer format, featuring Tiger Shroff as a co-lead.

With “Sarfira” joining the list of underperforming films, the industry ponders Akshay Kumar’s next move. While his project pipeline remains full, a course correction appears necessary. The nature of this change and its potential impact on his career trajectory remain to be seen.
