Box Office is the most unpredictable game. A small budget and risky film sometimes give the best profits to producers while a film with guaranteed Hit formula added with high budget becomes the nightmare of producers. If somebody knew the results earlier, they would never invest big in a wrong film, but this experience comes with the wrong choices only.
