It is going to be one of the most entertaining weekends at the box office this year. And we have Akshay Kumar, Vidya Balan, Taapsee Pannu, Sonakshi Sinha, Nithya Menen, Kirti Kulhari, and John Abraham to thank it for. Two Bollywood movies are set to release this Independence Day: Mission Mangal and Batla House. Both movies have a unique element of patriotism. While Akshay, along with his team of women, reaches for Mars in Mission Mangal, John attempts to tell the tale of the encounter of Batla House. Together, both the movies are expected to bring in a box office collection of Rs 35 to 40 crores this Independence Day. 

Trade analyst Girish Johar tells Pinkvilla, "Independence Day is a big holiday and it is coinciding with the Rakhi holiday up north, it takes the additional partial holiday away. But no doubt the families will be available to watch both the films and I believe anywhere between Rs 35 to 40 crores at the box office is up for grabs." 

Speaking about Batla House, Girish said, "It is a John Abraham film, he is back in his element. He is on a very good curve and people are enjoying what he is presenting. It is a nerve hitting, drama film. Everyone has been talking about it. It is a realistic thriller drama. The promotional material is intriguing and exciting. It is not a film like Satyamav Jayete, massy, hardcore action. It is in the action, thriller, drama zone." He predicts that the movie would collect a box office collection of Rs 13 to 15 crores on Day 1. "Depending on the box office feedback and audience expectations being met, it can further build upon," he added. 

Talking about Mission Mangal, Girish explained, "Akshay Kumar as always is toplining a film which this time has not one message but many messages. Its an Independence Day release, it has Mission Mangal, it talks about women empowerment, it is catering to the female audiences, it is catering to a family audience. Akshay has his own knack of putting things lightly and comical way but in a smart manner. Mission Mangal is something new being offered to the audience. A sci-fi movie hasn't been attempted in the Hindi industry before." 

He predicts that Mission Mangal will open with a box office collection of Rs 23 to 25 crores. "It should be one of the top of Day 1 earners for Akshay Kumar," he added. Mission Mangal is expected to release in over 2700 screens whereas Batla House is expected to release on 1500 screens. Which movie are you going to watch this weekend?
