Badrinath Ki Dulhania emerges a winner

Dharma Productions’ Badrinath Ki Dulhania is well on course to be a big winner at the box office. The film has collected Rs 27 crore in 2 days and looking at the jump in occupancy in the morning, the Varun-Alia starrer should end its first weekend with net box office collections of 43-44 crore.

The trend over the weekend suggests the film is finding appreciation and even centres that did not take a good initial on Friday, showed growth on Saturday. Multiplexes at metro cities were packed on Saturday night and that should be the case today too because tomorrow is a holiday for Holi.

The other positive for Badrinath Ki Dulhania is the lack of competition in the next few weeks. Machine is not carrying any pre-release buzz, Phillauri appeals to a different section of the audience so the impact should be minimal. Even Naam Shabana isn’t a big film either, so Badrinath Ki Dulhania could have a open run until the release of Sarkar 3 in the first week of April.

Cost-wise, the film is safe already and should recover almost all of its investment by the time the holi festivities end.

Badrinath Ki Dulhania Box Office Collections

  • Friday – 12.25 crore
  • Saturday – 14.75 crore
  • Total – 27 crore

IndicineLBO: We are going with 115 crore as our final IndicineLBO prediction for Badrinath Ki Dulhania. The film should get advantage of Holi celebrations on Sunday, Monday and probably even on Tuesday. A better trend than Jolly LLB 2 could even take the film above the 120 crore mark. The level of collections on Tuesday will decide for certain if the film will cross 100.

  • BKD has done superb business in the first 2 days . Today the collections will be in the range of 15+ and tomorrow it will get advantage of Holi . The level of drop on Tuesday will determine the lifetime collections . 115 CR prediction means you are expecting BKD to trend very well at the Box office . So Varun Dhawan maintains his 100 % success record and I don’t expect Judwaa 2 to fail even it turns out to be a bad film . Alia Bhatt is just bigger with each film . Although her performance has not been appreciated on the level of Highway, UP and DZ but still get popularity among the audience is increasing . !!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Watched BKD yesterday. The multiplex was 70% full with every kind of audience but majority are youth specially girls came in groups. Coming to the movie its a full fledged entertainer with social message too. The first half is full fun while second half has drama with humor. Dialogues and comic element are well executed. Direction was superb. Shashank made a complete family entertainer without kiss/sex scenes and double meaning jokes.
    Coming to performance, all the actors were brilliantly casted. Alia was outstanding with her role, right from the first scenes to the climax. Equally good in comedy,dramatic scenes. Yash sinha,Sweta basu,Apart shakti khurana and the girl who played Alia’s sister are good. Sahir vaid is brilliant, he made you smile whenever he is on screen. All the supporting cast were good too. But the Star of the movie is Badri itself. Varun Dhawan is brilliant in the movie,he is superb as badri, He put all his acting ability in badri whether it is comedy,innocence, drama or angry man moments. He connected with various kind of audience right from the first scene. Audience connected with him the most. It is his best performance though he still need to work on emotion scenes.
    Music is superb but they should put the title track in start. All song are well placed.
    Overall BKD is good entertainer. A perfect family movie with good social input. this film should cross 100cr as audience loves the movie.

  • Young stars like sid,ranbir,arjun are making films for classes which in a family of 5 only 2 people will watch only if it is good
    While varun is making family entertainers for the whole family and is quickly decimating his competition even tiger is making films for masses who are loyal and watch a film no matter how good or bad it is.
    All the children in India love varun and even families watch films like main Tera hero,dishoom,dulhania over Adhm,befikre.

  • Wow.115 CR’s lbo means it would collect as much as jolly llb 2.that’s what a movie targeted at pan India audience can do.akki should seriously do a movie which would get his core fan following at single screens back to theatres as multiplexes audiences are however coming in big numbers.then only he can break rowdy n get into 150 CR’s club..

  • My bet is on Ranbir kapoor and Varun Dhawan.. I feel The hero looking actors won’t come and won’t fade away easily.. And then they promote herogiri too..

  • Indicine: it wud b nice if u do comparison between jolly n badri day wise collections as both are having similar trends though jolly is better on Saturday with 17 CR’s but badri has a big holiday on the comparison makes sense!

  • Its finding appreciation in both single screens and multiplexes means Best WOM of 2017 .

    I was hoping 17CR from Saturday same as jolly 2 dis, but only 14.75 with little manipulation ..
    A bigger star in such good universal movie would HV insure better collections .!
