It was just a matter of time. Rocky Bhai arrived at 9:29 pm on January 7th, and it took him very few minutes to displace almost all the existing YouTube records within that period. Indeed, it is a proud moment that the distinction is held by a Kannada movie.
KGF Chapter 2 Teaser In 24 Hours
In just 24 hours, the teaser of KGF Chapter 2 garnered close to 70 million views on YouTube. Apart from this, the teaser has been liked by 4.2 million users on the platform. The ‘likes-stat’ still stands below the trailer of Sushant Singh Rajput’s last film Dil Bechara, which had acquired close to 5.5 million likes within a day but KGF Chapter 2’s trailer is yet to come. Nevertheless, KGF Chapter 2 has displaced records held by films such as Avengers: Infinity War and Master.
Likes V/s Dislikes Ratio (24 Hours)
The ratio is negligible. While the likes stand at close to 4.2 million, the dislikes are only 15000. The ratio would therefore be only 280:1 in favor of the likes. That shows the impact that the teaser has had on the movie fanatics. If even half of this love is reciprocated at the theaters, the Indian Movie Industry will be back on its feet after the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Records That Were Put To Bed
1.3 million views in 10 minutes, 5 million views in 49 minutes, 10 million views in 112 minutes…
Well, that must tell you the story. The KGF Chapter 2 Teaser has played havoc as almost every other record on YouTube was shattered. While all the Kannada movie YouTube records were put to rest, the clip also started to compete on the international level. The teaser was the World’s first movie teaser that received 2 million likes, and all of it happened within just eleven hours. And, all of this has occurred after the teaser was leaked!
After all this, we’ve only one thing to say ‘Salaam Rocky Bhai and Take A Bow Prashanth Neel.
