I think it's even simpler.
I think HIT music sorta guarantees a good opening. Regardless of who's in the film. That's enough of a boost that if a film had a decent enough storyline, it'll be successful.

Films like OMG, Kahaani normally get weak openings but then grow due to word of mouth. And since their budgets are normally controlled, they are able to profit and be successful.

Lots of movies fare very well without charbusting music nowadays. Most of Vidya's movies.. Paa, Kahani, Ishquiya hardly has any music to speak of. Things are changing from the movies of the 80's and 90's. Good scripts, strong acting, good WOM can overcome poor music scores.

Music helps but nothing beats a great script. Films like Kahaani, EV, OMG, Jolly LLB, Fukrey, Special 26 are all successes without a hit music album. There have been cases of successful music but unsuccessful films.

Clarification - Hit music doesnt ensure a hit film (there is so much anyone can do if the film itself is atrocious), but hit films seem to have hit music (with a few exceptions - Vidya)

I guess what I"m trying to say, is that music seems like a pretty crucial aspect in films that take off with strong openings. And I'm starting to think that its as big a USP as having a superstar or franchise label attached. 

I remember Agent Vinod's buzz doubled after Pungi's trailer (I was tracking the buzz since...you know, I sold my soul to that film).

Films like Ashiqui 2 and SOTY had new faces, yet took off like wildfire on opening weekends without any superstar. 
I feel music directors are terribly underrated. 

Pritam should SO be paid more LOL

Films work because everything comes together well. The better everything matches, the more they work.

Good music is probably the best promotional tool there is...it increases buzz. But it cannot make a film work big time. There has to be something in the film itself.

Agreed hit music makes a buzz for the movie but the movie has to be substantial to be a "HIT". A2's tum hi ho generated a lot of buzz, there was over 1 million views in just few days. I went to see the movie in theatre partially because of music but was actually blown away by performances and story. However, movies like Khiladi 786 have hit music too but that does not equal hit movie.
