The trade and industry are gearing up for the release of Yash-starrer ‘KGF 2’ next week, along with Shahid Kapoor-starrer ‘Jersey’ and Thalapathy Vijay’s Tamil film, ‘Raw (Beast)’. Due to the clash of these films and also because of the start of Ramzan, this week would not see the release of any major Hindi film.

The major film hitting cinemas is ‘Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets Of Dumbledore’. This is the third Fantastic Beasts franchise and it is a part of the Harry Potter universe. The first part opened at Rs. 1.50 crore and had lifetime collections of Rs. 15 crore approx. The sequel opened at Rs. 2.75 crore and ended its run by collecting around Rs. 22 crore.

‘Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets Of Dumbledore’ would not collect so much as the second part. An opening of Rs. 1-1.75 crore would be ideal. For exhibitors, it’ll be an apt film this week to fill cinemas before the big films release on April 13.

The other release is ‘The Lost City’. The awareness and hype are minimal though it can get some audiences due to its star cast (Channing Tatum, Sandra Bullock, Daniel Radcliffe and Brad Pitt). Chris Pine-starrer ‘The Contractor’, meanwhile, would suffer due to zero awareness.

Speaking of Bollywood, ‘Hurdang’ starring Sunny Kaushal, Nushrratt Bharuccha and Vijay Verma would arrive in cinemas. The awareness is there but the hype is negligible. It has got a very limited release and hence, its collections would be disastrous.

On Netflix and Jio Cinema, ‘Dasvi’ was released today. It stars Abhishek Bachchan, Yami Gautam and Nimrat Kaur. It tells a hilarious story of a chief minister who goes to jail and who then decides to complete his education. It looks like a clean family film and hence, it might get decent viewership.
