After the success of Heropanti and Baaghi, Tiger Shroff has teamed up for the third time with director Sabbir Khan on Munna Michael. The theatrical trailer of the film was well received by the masses. However, the songs, except Ding Dang and Swag couldn’t quite carry forward the buzz. The movie produced by Eros International will get a wide release across the country and is expected to embark on a good start at the Box Office.
The film’s run-time is approximately two hours 20 minutes which would result in higher number of shows at the multiplexes. While the screen booking is still in progress, the film is expected to release on over 2400 screens in India.
Tiger Shroff has managed to carve his own niche among the masses over the last two years and all his films, including A Flying Jatt, managed to record a good opening at the ticket window. Nawazuddin Siddiqui is a cherry on top as after films like Kick, Raees and Bajrangi Bhaijaan, the masses have started to recognize and relate to his characters.
The movie should start off well at places like Mumbai, Pune, UP, Bihar, Rajasthan, and Gujarat whereas others would be dependent on the audience word of mouth. Critic reviews shall be insignificant for a film like Munna Michael as it is meant for a section of the audience who believe in unabashed entertainers.
The film might challenge the opening day number of Jagga Jasoos (Rs 8.57 crore), however, a lot would depend on how the film opens at the multiplexes across the country. The budget of Munna Michael is on the lower side, which means that the film would emerge a ‘clean hit’ at collections above Rs 60 crore. However, that number isn’t easy to achieve and the film needs to command a fairly positive word of mouth for the same.
