Meghna Gulzar, who previously directed Talwar, Raazi, and Chhapaak, is now prepared for adapted Field Marshal Sam Manekshaw’s life story for the big screen in Sam Bahadur, starring Vicky Kaushal. The movie’s teaser and trailer generated buzz and increased interest before to its December 1 release. The Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) certified Sam Bahadur as U/A, with a permitted runtime of two hours and thirty minutes (150 minutes).

In India, Sam Bahadur will be available on 1800 screens

The Vicky Kaushal film is being released in about 1300 Indian theaters, or 1800–2000 screens, despite an opposition with the Ranbir Kapoor–led Animal. The producers have chosen to go forward with a targeted release, with a metro-focused showcase. On Saturday, Sam Bahadur’s advances opened, and the reaction to the ticket sales has also been respectable. As of Thursday morning at 10.30 am, Sam Bahadur has already sold almost 25,000 tickets in the top three national chains, PVRInox and Cinepolis.

Bigger than movies like Bhediya, Cirkus, and Shehzada, the Meghna Gulzar-directed picture is expected to have a total pre-sale of 45,000 tickets in the major chains, placing it in the same category as Samrat Prithviraj and Shamshera, among others. The disadvantage for Sam Bahadur would be the contribution from single screens, though, as the multiplexes are anticipated to have a biased business ratio.

Sam Bahadur hopes to debut at a Rs 5 crore opening

According to the improvements, Sam Bahadur could have an opportunity worth roughly Rs 5 crore. After that, word-of-mouth marketing will be the main driver of the the business. The movie needs strong weekend box office numbers on Saturday and Sunday, followed by a strong Monday, and this should occur with the target demographic talking positively. Although many see Sam Bahadur’s clash with Animal as a poor business decision, the film’s Rs 5 crore opening is actually creating the foundation for it to flourish and follow a strong trend.

Due to the clash, there was an increase in interest in and discussion topics around the movie. Even on the day of release, Sam will profit from the excess crowd from Animal, meaning that those who were unable to attend Animal may decide to purchase tickets for Sam Bahadur instead. Although it’s a losing strategy for Animal, team Sam Bahadur made this calculated decision. While there may be some spillover during the weekend, the movie will stand on its own during the week and begin its quest to win over viewers.
