Dangal Box Office Collections: Emerges a Blockbuster

Dangal is yet another blockbuster for Aamir Khan. His third consecutive blockbuster or better after Dhoom 3 and PK. It’s also his fifth consecutive blockbuster during Christmas which includes films like Ghajini, 3 Idiots, Dhoom 3 and PK.

The trend of the film is extraordinary, even better than an universally acclaimed blockbuster like ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’ last year.

Dangal has collected 23.07 crore (including collections from Tamil and Telugu versions) on Tuesday, to take its 5-day total to Rs 155.50 crore net.

Looking at the trend, the film will collect around Rs 196 crore in its first week. Thereafter, the film has 2 open weeks before the release of ‘Ok Jaanu’ on January 13 – including the big weekend for New Year, which will help bring more audience to theatres to watch Aamir Khan’s latest classic.

With 300 crore almost a certainty, the ‘PK’ record of Rs 341 crore is well within reach for Dangal. The level of collections in the second weekend will decide if the film will fall short of ‘PK’ or go on to be a much bigger grosser.

  • In the movie, Mahavir Phogat is taken to a room and locked up by a person sent by the Indian wrestling team coach just before the gold medal match. As a result, he misses the entire final.In reality, Mahavir Singh Phogat was in the stands during Geeta’s match and saw his daughter win the Commonwealth Games gold medal.

  • . Was Geeta’s real Commonwealth Games Gold Medal Match the Cliffhanger that is shown in the film?In the movie, Geeta Phogat struggles to win the gold medal match in the Commonwealth Games in 2010. She scores a five-pointer in the nail-biting final round of the match and clinches the gold medal with a scoreline of 5-1,4-6, 6-5.However, in reality, Geeta Phogat completely dominated her opponent and won the match in just two rounds,unlike the one shown in the movie that went on to three rounds. Her score was 1-0, 7-0. Also, Geeta Phogat has long hair in the real match, while her reel counterpart in the movie has a really short hairstyle.

  • In the movie, Geeta Phogat doesn’t win a single tournament before the Commonwealth Games in 2010. She also receives a lot of flak from the coach in the movie for not excelling on the international stage.However, in reality, Geeta had earlier won the gold medal at the Commonwealth Wrestling Championship in 2009, where she competed in the 55kg freestyle wrestling category. Interestingly, Geeta’s 2010 CWG gold was followed by another gold medal at the Commonwealth Wrestling Championship in Melbourne in 2011!

  • Since 3 Idiots, its will be Aamir 3rd atbb in a row but Dangal success is most satisfying for me as an Aamir fan compare to D3 and PK.
    D3 was the movie which many didn’t liked.
    PK was classic but it definitely hurts religious sentiment of many hindus.
    Dangal is above both of them. Right from the trailer launch to today, its in destruction mode.
    Highest watched trailer on YouTube belong to Dangal.
    Most Critically acclaimed movie of the year- Dangal (beaten Pink and Neerja)
    Highest Single Day collection ever- 42.3cr
    Highest Weekend Ever- 106.9cr
    Highest Non holiday Monday & Tuesday- Dangal

    All above that Team Dangal made a masterpiece which completely justified the efforts Aamir did for the movie, he also left big movie 2.0 for this movie. The movie liked by almost 99% of the audience who watched the film. The major chunk of Dangal success goes to Aamir, but as Aamir always said that A film is a team effort and it’s success belong to everyone associated with this movie.
    Dangal is definitely become HGOTY but we want it break PK collections because it is better movie.
    All hail Aamir Khan
    3 ATBB back to back.

    He was the number star of last decade too, whether anyone accept it or not. Remember his ATHG cum ATBB Ghajini & 3 idiots.

  • Aamir Khan proves again that he is the ultimate superstar of Bollywood today. He should be added to the league of Amitabh Bachaan and Rajnikanth in terms of stardom. Dangal is far by the best movie of Aamir Khan.

  • Salute the Blockbuster Supremo Aamir Khan. He’s someone who doesn’t worry about numbers at box office collection, don’t believe in competition with his coworker , don’t even care about film critics, doesn’t believe in awards. Hope Bollywood artists will learn from this Most Respected Bollywood Star.

  • Dangal has the advantage of winter vocation.so everyday is holiday or partial holiday.
    Schools and colleges are closed during this period
    Due to which kids and families are coming in huge
    And Xmas is the most productive period for any film to release..just wait for the tiger zinda hair to release
    And we’ll see the scenario then..
