Box Office Collections – April 2013
- Apr 5: No star value, David Dhawan’s first outing after the ‘Rascals debacle’ – yet Chashme Baddoor opened well at the box office and collected 5 crores on it’s opening day. The reports are MUCH better than last week’s release Himmatwala.
- Apr 12: Both Commando and Nautanki Saala opened slow, but picked up as the day progressed. Commando opened well at single-screens, while Ayushman Khurana’s Nautanki took a decent opening at multiplexes. Both films have been made on a low budget.
- April 19: Solo-release this week – Ek Thi Daayan which didn’t open well at the box office. While the critics have the film a thumbs up, the film didn’t fare well at places where Emraan Hashmi films open well. To give credit where it’s due, the film wasn’t really a typical Bollywood horror film. The promos clearly didn’t have any mass appeal and the film was below-the-mark at plexes. Overall, the producers will recover their investment. AVERAGE.
- April 26: One Hindi release (Aashiqui 2) and one major Hollywood film (Iron Man 3). The latter opened better, but Aashiqui 2 exceeded expectations on it’s opening day collecting 5.75 crore.
Box Office Collections – March 2013
- Mar 1: The two major movies a week trend continues with the release of Ram Gopal Varma’s ‘The Attacks Of 26/11′ and ’s I Me Aur Main. Both open poorly and have little or no growth over the weekend. As expected, both movies ‘FLOP’ at the box office.
- Mar 8: Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster Returns and Saare Jahaan Se Mehnga released this week. While the former opened well the box office collecting a healthy Rs 3.25 crore net, the later was a non-starter. Bookmark this page for all Box Office updates.
- Mar 15: Three releases this week – Jolly LLB, Mere Dad Ki Maruti and 3G. All three movies opened to a poor response on Friday morning. Jolly LLB though picked up and managed to put up good collections over the weekend. Mere Dad Ki Maruti too showed good growth in business. 3G was a disappointment, although it did decent business in smaller centres where sex and horror sells. Last week’s release Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster Returns crashed in it’s second weekend. Kai Po Che steady at select cinemas. All eyes on Himmatwala now, which releases in theatres on March 29.
- Mar 22: The trend of multiple releases continues. Aatma, Rangrez and Sona Spa released in theatres this weekend and all three opened to poor houses. Aatma was decent at mass-centres, Rangrez was poor, while Sona Spa is a washout. Last week’s release Jolly LLB was the first choice this weekend.
- Mar 29: The last release of the month, the box office biggie Himmatwala, didn’t open to packed houses as expected. Released on 3100-3200 screens, the Sajid Khan film took a 40-50% All India opening. The response was extremely poor at Urban multiplexes, while screen screens at mass-dominated centres witnessed a decent turnout. Saturday, being a working day, is crucial for the Ajay Devgn starrer. Update: Crashed on Saturday, Sunday business was lower than Friday. Weekdays were poor too. FLOP. Biggest disappointment of the year so far.
Box Office Collections – February 2013
- Feb 1: The first two releases of February – David and Vishwaroop – opened to a poor response. David was a box office disaster, while the Hindi version of Vishwaroop (backed by Balaji) did well at the ticket window.
- Feb 8: This week also witnessed two new releases – ’s Special 26 and Prabhu Deva’s ABCD – Anybody Can Dance. The trade was in for a surprise as ABCD opened to a better response than Special 26. As the day progressed, Special 26 came into it’s own collecting 5.75 crore on it’s opening day. For a film without stars, ABCD did well to collect 4.25 crore. The word-of-mouth for Special 26 was good which helped the film cross the 60 crore mark. ABCD is likely to end it’s run with 40 crores net.
- Feb 15: Valentine’s day weekend saw two more hindi movies hit screens – Murder 3 and Jayantabhai Ki Luv Story. The former, without Emraan Hashmi, was riding on brand value. The later was a box office disaster from it’s opening day.
- Feb 22: It looks like every week has two new releases this year as the much-delayed Zila Ghaziabad and Rock On!! director’s Kai Po Che released in cinemas. Zila did well on single screens in mass-centres, while Kai Po Che rocked the big-city multiplexes. KPC, based on Chetan Bhagat’s ‘The 3 Mistakes Of My Life’ is carrying fantastic word-of-mouth. It’s like to collect 45 crore+ at the domestic box office. The film, released by UTV Motion Pictures, was a surprise hit at the overseas box office too. The film has fared very well in US, UK and Australia.
Week 4 Box Office Collections – January 2013
- Jan 25: Race 2 opened to a good response. The film proved to be the biggest hit of Saif Ali Khan and Deepika Padukone’s career. First major success of 2013.
Week 3 Box Office Collections – January 2013
- Jan 18: Two releases this week – Inkaar and Mumbai Mirror, both opened to a poor response. Inkaar, with a bigger star cast, got a slightly better opening but the occupancy was less than 20% for noon shows. All eyes on Race 2 now!
- Jan 18: Day 1 – Inkaar 1.5 crore (poor), Mumbai Mirror 0.25 crore (disaster), Bandook 0.16 crore (washout).
Upcoming box office biggies: Race 2 (25th January), Special 26 (8th February), Murder 3 (15th February).
Week 2 Box Office Collections – January 2013
- Jan 11: Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola: The makers spent a lot of money on marketing the film and released it on 1850 screens. But the box office opening on Friday was way below expectations. Thursday (Preview shows) + Friday – 6.5 crore.
- Jan 12: Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola: Didn’t show enough growth, huge chunk of business was generated from premium multiplexes. Saturday: 6.65 crore.
- Jan 13: Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola: Given the high costs, MKBKM looks almost certain to be Vishal Bhardwaj’s second failure in a row after Saat Khoon Maaf. The growth in business from Saturday was less than 10%. Sunday – 7.3 crore. First Weekend – 20.45 crore.
- Jan 14: Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola: Managed to put up good numbers on Monday, as it was a holiday for ‘Makara Sankaranti’ in certain parts of the country. Monday – 3.5 crore.
- Jan 17: Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola: The film collected Rs 2.3 cr on Tuesday, Rs 2.05 cr on Wednesday and Rs 1.9 cr on Thursday. Week 1 Total – 30.2 crore
Notes: The trade had huge expectations from MKBKM as Imran Khan was enjoying a good run, Anushka Sharma has a strong fan following of her own and Vishal Bhardwaj films are known for it’s quality. Matru also looked promising from the trailers, music was a decent success too, but the opening day and first week collections were lower than Imran’s last clean-hit Mere Brother Ki Dulhan. Last week’s release Table No 21 crashed at the box office.
Week 1 Box Office Collections – January 2013
- Jan 6: Table No 21: Friday – 1.5 cr, Saturday – 2 cr, Sunday – 2.25 cr. First weekend – 5.75 crore.
- Jan 10: Table No 21: Monday – 1 cr, Tuesday – 0.95 cr, Wednesday – 0.9 cr, Thursday – 0.9 cr. First week total – Rs 9.5 crore.
Notes: Table No 21 made on a budget of Rs 9 crores, with no major stars (Paresh Rawal, Rajeev Khandewal, Tena Desae) was the first release of 2013. The film took a slow start on it’s opening day, but managed a healthy total in it’s first weekend and continued it’s steady run over the weekdays. With competition in Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola, it remains to be seen if the film can sustain in theatres after it’s first week.
