Ghajini – economics of this movie

leave a comment »

Saw this movie yesterday; finally.

Different storyline and good but slight overacting from all the stars. Some missing links in this film and surprised at that – given Aamir Khan’s attention to detail. I have a feeling that they decided to hurry with the release during the holiday season to catch the wave so they can gross multiples of the revenue they would if they release it in the beginning of the new year!

What is more interesting is the economics surrounding this movie.

The Surya starrer with the same name was the Tamil version released some years ago. By all counts, this Hindi version has grossed more revenue. The film was promoted by Anil Amabani’s Big Pictures entertainment.

The Hindi version has grossed Rs. 600 crores already and counting! It was the first Hindi film to cross Rs. 200 crores earlier!

At the end of the day, it is Anil Ambani and Aamir Khan laughing their way all the way to the bank due to the huge commercial success of this movie!
