Ammy Virk has had an impressive track record at the box office. All his movies have been widely accepted by audiences of all age. The talented actor’s latest release Saab Bahadar, that came out in May this year was a semi-hit, but Ammy was lauded for trying something different. With Nikka Zaildar 2 releasing on 22nd September, hopes are sky high from Ammy as well as the entire team behind the movie.
Making a sequel can be tricky. You get recognized easily, but it’s the burden of performing yet again that puts even the best in business under pressure. The sequel to last year’s blockbuster Nikka Zaildar, Nikka Zaildar 2 undoubtedly has bright prospects as far as box office predictions are concerned. Let’s analyze:
What could help the movie?
- The Prequel was a Blockbuster – Nikka Zaildar was a laugh riot. One of the best movies to have come out of the Punjabi film industry, Nikka Zaildar brought the house down with its dialogues, acting by lead actors, fresh story and flawless direction.
- Super-impressive Trailer – When launched, the trailer of Nikka Zaildar 2 created the same impact that the prequel had made. From the looks of it, the movie seems like another romantic comedy with loads of drama. With over 4 million views on Youtube, the trailer has indeed managed to make an impact.
- The charm of Ammy Virk – The blue eyed boy of Pollywood, Ammy Virk has had 5 releases in 2 years, and all 5 have managed to make an impact at the box office. The star power of Ammy Virk will be a major factor behind a bumper opening for the movie.
- Sonam Bajwa and Wamiqa Gabbi – While the earlier part was an out an out love story of Sonam Bajwa and Ammy Virk, this one seems to be a love triangle. Sonam Bajwa will be back on the big screen, fresh from the accolades she received for Super Singh. Wamiqa Gabbi would be seen in a Punjabi movie after a long time. The beautiful actress would surely be making her presence felt in Nikka Zaildar 2..
- Simerjit Singh, the Director – One of the most blessed directors of Pollywood, Simerjit Singh is yet again the captain of the ship here. He glorified his talent in Angrej and Nikka Zaildar, and viewers have high hopes from him.
- The Team behind Nikka Zaildar – If you are making a sequel, then its important to keep intact the essence of the prior part. The makers have made an intelligent move to repeat almost the same team that had delivered Nikka Zaildar. Besides the lead actors Ammy Virk, Sonam Bajwa, Nirmal Rishi, director Simerjit Singh, the makers have showed confidence in Jagdeep Sidhu who had written the story, screenplay and dialogues of the first part and has yet again worked on similar roles.
- Fresh Story with added characters –Nikka Zaildar 2 is nowhere related to the prequel. The ambience, setting, characters and story is all fresh. The makers have added new characters like Sardar Sohi, Wamiqa Gabbi etc. according to the need of the script.
- Music – Gurmeet Singh has another winner in his hands. With Kali Jota, Gaani and now Jatti Mili Jatt Nu already topping the charts, the music will definitely help the movie in getting off to a flyer.
- Backing by Omjee Group – Its very important to have a wide release for your movie. With Mr. Munish Sahni of Omjee Group distributing the movie, the makers can be at ease as far as the reach of the movie is concerned.
What could go wrong?
- Expectations are sky high – Viewers will be continuously comparing Nikka Zaildar 2 with Nikka Zaildar. Although the story and setting of both movies is in complete contrast to each other, the onus of the makers would be to present similar or better cinema. Often the sequels loose fizz if they are not a similar product like the earlier version. Thus, the aspect which lures the viewers to hit the theatre can sometimes backfire.
- Karamjit Anmol is missing from the trailer – One of the mainstays of the prequel, Karamjit Anmol is missing from the trailer of the movie. The supremely talented actor had done a fine job earlier and audience would have loved to see him perform again with Ammy and Nirmal Rishi.
Box Office Prediction:
The movie is expected to get off to a flying start worldwide. The star power of Ammy Virk , Sonam Bajwa, Wamiqa Gabbi and Simerjit Singh will ensure a good weekend business for the movie. If the movie is impressive and manages to connect with the audience, it has the potential to become the next blockbuster of 2017.
Nikka Zaildar 2 releases on 22nd September, 2017.
