‘Jailer’ was massively hyped crosswise South India, with offices in Tamil Nadu even giving philanthropic a day off to their employees to watch the film on August 10 upon its release. Rajinikanth’s façade in the movie is that of an old jailer hunting down a dishonorable gang lord and mercilessly eliminating his gang associates.

Regarding the magic of ‘Jailer’ at the box office, skill expert Ramesh Bala said: “Rajinikanth is a Superstar. The ‘Superstar’ tag alone can garner all the attention it needs. And then, he also benefits since worldwide recognition.”

Current his analysis, Bala said: “Apart from Rajinikanth, the flick has good content, it is different, and has other famous faces since the South, notably Malayalam superstar Mohanlal and Ramya Krishnan. But when you indicate Rajinikanth, words such as swag, cool, and attitude come to mind. In addition, his 50-year-plus career and humble nature also help.”

Bala expects the aera collection of ‘Jailer’ to touch Rs 600 crore, which income will surpass last year’s ‘Ponniyin Selvan 1’ and ‘Vikram,’ in addition to standing just behind Rajini’s ‘2.0’.

‘Gadar 2’ is unlikely to cross Rs 450-500 crore, but its makers, having bent the film reportedly for Rs 75 crore, are already laughing all the method to the bank.
