Half Girlfriend Box Office Prediction: Will It Join the 100 Crore club?

Half Girlfriend Box Office Prediction: The Arjun Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor starrer romantic movie will hit the theatres tomorrow.

All Shraddha Kapoor and Arjun Kapoor fans have been eagerly waiting for Half Girlfriend to release on the big screen and the day has finally arrived. The trailer was impressive enough and the songs have been doing quite well too. The big question is- How will the movie fare at the box-office? Here’s our Half Girlfriend box Office prediction-

The movie is based on Chetan Bhagat’s novel and the last time Arjun Kapoor worked on an adaptation of Bhagat’s novel (2 States), the movie turned out to be a hit one. On the other hand, Shraddha Kapoor has worked with Mohit Suri in Aashiqui 2, Ek Villain and we all know that these movies are still considered amongst the all-time favourite of lovers all over the country. Will Half Girlfriend be able to recreate that magic?

Half Girlfriend Box Office Prediction: Hype & Buzz

The plotline of Half Girlfriend has already touched the hearts of the youth and Bhagat’s novel was a bestseller at a point of time. Plus, the music of the film is already enjoying quite a successful run especially Phir Bhi Tumko Chahunga and Baarish. This is the first time Arjun Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor are working together and their pair looks quite refreshing. They seem to share a good chemistry and this is another reason why the movie has been in the news all this time.

Half Girlfriend Box Office Prediction: Positives & Negatives

Positives

  • Impressive trailer: The trailer of Half Girlfriend received a lot of appreciation and it was able to strike a chord with the general public.
  • Chetan Bhagat is quite popular among the youth and his involvement with the movie will be a huge plus for the movie’s business.
  • IPL season is coming to an end and the public is likely to look for other options to keep themselves entertained. Looking back, almost all the movie that had a post-IPL release were able to join 100 crore club like Rowdy Rathore,  Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani, Holiday. So, we expect Half Girlfriend to enter that club too.
  • No big competition: The only other move releasing with Half Girlfriend is Irrfan Khan-Saba Qamar’s Hindi Medium and the movie is not a major threat for Half Girlfriend.
  • The leads Arjun Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor are widely popular and they have a huge fan-following which will be quite beneficial for the film.

Negatives

  • Even though Arjun Kapoor has tried hard to look perfect in the role of a Bihari boy, he has been receiving a lot of flak for not looking suitable for the role.
  • The novel did not go down well with the critics and this may happen with movie critics as well.
  • Mohit Suri’s last release Hamari Adhuri Kahani bombed at the box-office and if the movie is not able to a good Word of Mouth review from the public, it may just as well have the same fate.
  • The craze for Bahubali 2 is still high among the viewers and this may affect the total collection of Half Girlfriend to an extent.

Half Girlfriend Opening And Lifetime Collection Box Office Prediction

Half Girlfriend will release on around 2700 screens all over the country and we expect the movie to open with an occupancy of around 40 to 45%. Considering this, Half Girlfriend will be able to earn 9 to 10 crores on the first day itself.

After a decent opening, it will boil down to the content. While the opening weekend collection should cross 35 crores mark, the box office fate of the movie will depend on the WOM. Considering the fact that Mohit Suri’s last film was not so successful, the fate of Half Girlfriend will be depending a lot on Word of Mouth publicity. With positive WOM, Half Girlfriend has a good chance to enter 100 crore club.

Half Girlfriend First Day Collection Prediction: 9 to 10 crores 
Half Girlfriend Lifetime Collection Prediction: 85 to 90 crores
