Ajay Devgn and Ileana D’Cruz‘s Raid is one of the most anticipated and interesting films of the month. Chronicling the story of an income tax officer, who is on a mission to expose the most corrupt and powerful guy in the city, the film will be a massy entertainer with a lot of action. Obviously, it will do well at the box office. But how much will Raid rake in at the ticket window? And what factors will help the movie become a success? We rung up our trade expert, Amul Vikas Mohan (Editor of Super Cinema), to know more about this and here’s what he had to say.
Talking about the buzz and factors that will give the film a boost, Amul revealed to us exclusively, “Raid looks decent and the buzz is really good. It is in that Drishyam zone and the content and story looks really interesting. All this along with the fact that Ajay Devgn recently delivered his biggest hit – Golmaal Again will surely help the movie. I personally love Raj Kumar Gupta’s work too, so am sure he will present the film in a way that will engage the crowd. So surely, it seems like an ideal scenario for Raid.”
Releasing in 2000 plus screens, Raid will have a fantastic run over the first weekend. While predicting the opening weekend collections for the movie, Amul mentioned to us exclusively, “I feel Raid will take a decent opening in the range of Rs 9-10 crore on day one. Considering that it is a working Friday, I feel it will be fantastic. From there on, if the situation is favourable then it should grow and rake in Rs 38-40 crore over the first weekend.”
