Buddha Hoga Tera Baap Box Office: A Disaster?

The pre-release curiosity was good and the film was all over the internet – it was trending on twitter, almost everyone seemed to have LOVED the film, the reviews were exceptionally good – but all this matters for very little or nothing – atleast that’s what the box office opening of Amitabh Bachchan’s Buddha Hoga Tera Baap has just proved.

The film has opened to dismal numbers, the opening was low (occupancy was less then 20% for the morning and afternoon show) and the film never really picked up. People from the trade were expecting this weekend to be the second best weekend of the year (after Ready) and unfortunately both Delhi Belly and Buddha Hoga Tera Baap combined are unlikely to beat the opening of Double Dhamaal!

We predicted (at worst) a 9 crore weekend for Buddha Hoga Tera Baap and sadly that figure might not be achieved during its entire first week at the box office as the film collected just Rs 1.1 crore on Friday! These numbers are sure to be heart-breaking for the Bachchan’s.

They will be hopeful though as the last film produced by AB Corp, Paa also opened similarly with Day 1 collections of around 2 crores. But the film picked up on Saturday and Sunday to end the weekend at approx 10.5 crores.

The word of mouth is good and we do hope that Buddha Hoga Tera Baap picks up like Paa did over the weekend. Follow us on Facebook or Twitter and we will keep you updated.

I do not understand how the stupid hired media and chutiya public of India predicted better box office result for Buddha hoga type cheap film. After how long this Old Mad Man will make the indians fool with his chutiyapana. It should be pure disaster at box office. Good result.

I was laughing with the pre-release self promotion of Buddha by Bachchan Buddha the mad man. In spite of his all self promotion strategy it has been declared a great disaster at box office just like Tin Patti, Paa and Raan etc. etc. Good very good, Lambu should take retriement and let the money be earned by his robot son and naked model bahu. Shame to this money making machine….

Mr. Sanju-- Seems you are one of the FRONT BENCHERS OF LAMBU’S HIRED LOBBY. Bastard how dare you say Buddha as good film; it is a pure and pure Amitabh type Cheap Masala films just like Tin patti, jadugar, sarabi, kalia, mard etc. etc. type innumerable Amitabh’s cheapest films meant for front benchers……Do argue with stupid mentality,,,,

It is just a shame that bachchan would even attempt to act in todays modern era of film making people have matured and will not buy those stupid cheap films that bachchan is popular for doing those cheap thrill films where he has always had to copy mannerism of the DON’S of those days(which he has in an interviews accepted himself) so purely we were more attracted to the excellent story provided by salim saab javed saab and kaderkhan saab the dialogues written by them the characters created by them and not the actor in this case bieng bachchan thus as we have grown up and are not kids in school we realise that bachchan’s acting talents are ZERO his dialogue delivery ZERO but the words written were the real hero the story was real hero so if those roles were played by anyone those movies that bachchan boasts would be HIT even if they were played by anyone, so bachchan infact both sr and jr the verdict is you cannot act you can be a voice over in films but ACTING is not for you.And for the latest movie budah hoga tera baap it was a last desperate attempt of bachchan to encash on the yesteryear hit dialogues and bachchan clearly knows its THE END for him and his son.As for as sucess of pa it was the medical condition that people were seeing and the makeup that bachchan was given if that role was done by any other star the movie would have done good.

Lolz..loving the couple of haters on thsi forum spamming all over the message board with their frustration:

BHTBaap picked up quickly and now about to recover its cost of production (10 crores) from indian and overseas market during weekend…wom is very positive and it has full week to go…

I respect BIGB that he has guts to release his movie against an Amir Khan production and Hollywood giant Transformers and still picking up and doing well along with those two…..I don’t think any other so called star in bollywood would ever dare to do that

Bbuddah Hoga Terra Baap Has Low Monday

This is for all Lambu’s Kuttas who are barking in this forum, which shows Buddha Mar Gaya at Box Office

Tuesday 5th July 2011 12.00 IST

Boxofficeindia.Com Trade Network

Bbuddah Hoga Terra Baap had low collections on Monday of around 90 lakhs. The collections were steady but too low and the film will wrap its first week around the 9.25-9.50 crore nett mark.

This year films that have not opened well have tended to trend well on weekdays but on the lower side and Bbuddah Hoga Terra Baap is another addition to this list.

well.. I am not against AB. Nodoubt he is a superstar. I’m against those media persons who just rate this movie 5 stars. Don’t know how they rated it so high. This years big hit READY was rated with just 1.5 stars.
