Hindostan's funerals are great editions of Wonderful Years and can boast of huge stars, including Aamir Khan, Amitabh Bachchan, Katrina Kaif and Fatima Sana Shaikh, each with the big supporters who followed. Film analysts have no doubt that the film will get fiscal cash registers to ring this Divali. Manufacturers, however, have decided to raise the price of tickets to justify the massive budget of a film that has been made to a great extent.
The anticipated movie reservation, which opened on Saturday, was already hinting at home theaters with about 2 lakh tickets sold on the first day, as Bokofficeindia.com released. The report also states that the film has already surpassed Tiger Zinda Hai, Sanja and Avengers – Infiniti Var, although still lagging behind Baahubali – booking advance bookings.
Film Exhibitor Akshaie Rathi claims that the film will break 100 kilograms of brand within three days of release. He says: "First, the day after Divali is always considered the best day of the year for the release of the movie. Second, look at the elements that met in this film: Aamir, Amitabh Bachchan, Katrina, IRF, spectacle – an exciting package for people coming and watching in cinemas. "
"Thirdly, the price of the film to be taken will be among the highest levels ever for any Hindi movie, which will eventually give the film a jump in the numbers that come in. By Saturday, it will easily pass by 100 steps," he adds.
But will Aamir be able to interrupt the clip he made with his latest film Dangal? Rathi explains: "The elements that met for the Thugs of Hindostan, they have the full opportunity to get out of Dangala, but ultimately it depends on how the audience reacts to the content. If the story is unpleasant and fun enough and people are well spent, I certainly think that it can go beyond Dangal. God does not allow the film to suffer at the level of the story and script, then it can become a difficult task. "
For the snapshot, filmmakers have increased the prices of tickets that come as a rough shock for cinemas. Rathi explains the reason for such a decision: "The question is what is the value of the money you give to the audience. If you show me a movie like Stree for Rs 600, maybe I do not want to watch or watch it in a movie with a lower price card or it can be when it works about the TV or online portal, but if you show me a powerful movie at 800 Rs, I know it's an experience that has bought money. If it's the second type of movie, different prices of tickets are justified, so in the end it becomes the content that the movie offers more than price card. "
"If you are a fan of Aamir and Amitabha and Katrina, I think the premium is pretty well-off. It's not about how much people are paying, but about whether people have more experience more than paying money," he added.
Aamir also talked with PTI in an interview on the increase in compensation: "I can understand that it's a set of movie set. Personally, I'm always on the charts as cheaper. I think we should have theaters that are economical and people should go and watch a movie in the theater. My dream is that in India you need to have theaters that are economical, medium-sized and cheerful. Everyone should have the opportunity to access the film and I hope it happens. "
Rathi stands in support of Aamir and says: "In principle, I fully agree that the price of tickets should decrease, it should become a low-lying tree for the average Indians, it should become a sector that is affordable for an ordinary man, the government should also make an effort in this because it also charges a lot of taxes on the price of tickets.
