Atlee is one of the famous Indian film directors who is known for directing Telugu-language movies. He shot up to fame with his directorial debut Raja Rani in 2013 and tried to explore more genres. Currently he decided to venture the action drama genre with the movie called Bigil, starring Vijay, Nayanthara, Vivek, Yogi Babu and Jackie Shroff. The movie received a lot of hype as it was Vijay’s much awaited movie and the public also wanted to witness Atlee-Vijay duo.
But the stars weren’t lucky for the duo, as a bad news awaits for them. It is reported that the movie “Bigil” is already leaked in one of the leading torrent websites, called Tamilrockers, for full download.
Affect on Box Office Collections
Since Bigil was one of the most awaited movies in the Telugu film industry, and the amount of expectations that the fans had from the director as well as the actors, it is clear that the collections will have a great impact due to the free torrent download. In the present-day scenario, a lot of source of income of a movie depends on its first week earnings and the movie being leaked in such torrent websites will make a huge impact on the movie and the filmmakers will face a lot of problems in dealing with the situation.
However, on the brighter side, Bigil was so hyped within the fans that they are more likely to witness the movie in the theatres rather than in low quality torrent download. Also, for any promising action thriller, a lower definition would anyway not suffice.
First hand reactions of the movie are promising and the fans are waiting for more reviews and analysis of the movie but its leak in the torrent websites will still have a negative impact on the long run success of the movie. It is also seen in the recent past that almost all the Tamil and Telugu movies are being leaked on Tamilrockers and similar websites on the day of release.
Hit or Flop?
A very generic and common question. What do the experts say about the movie being a hit or a flop in the box office? Well there are a lot of expectations from the movie and the expected figures on the release day also look promising. The first day collection for Bigil is predicted to be a whopping 28 Crore Rupees. The first day overseas collection is expected to be 6 crore Rupees in all languages. The total worldwide gross of the movie is expected to be 200 Crore Rupees.
Even though the critic reviews have been mixed throughout, the festival holidays are predicted to boost up the audience in the theatres.
