Weekly Box Office Report: February 24 to March 2

It was a disastrous week at the box office (February 24 to March 2). The best performing film was Akshay Kumar’s 3-week old, Jolly LLB 2, followed by The Ghazi Attack.

Rangoon: The industry wasn’t surprised at the way ‘Rangoon’ opened, but the trend over the weekend and the massive crash during the weekdays has left the trade in a state of shock. The collections are scary because ‘Rangoon’ will finish with less than half the collections of Vishal Bhardwaj and Shahid Kapoor’s first film together ‘Kaminey’ which released in 2009 and went on to collect Rs 43 crore. A film that had landing costs of 80 crore plus, will finish with lifetime business of less than 20 crore. Disaster.

The Ghazi Attack: It was a film that released both in Hindi and regionally. The Hindi version was expected to sustain and perform at the box office, as the word-of-mouth was good at metro cities. However, the collections and the trend is very similar to ‘The LunchBox’ which also collected Rs 12 crore in the first week. While that film finished with lifetime collections of 22 crore, the Hindi version of The Ghazi Attack will finish with around 18 crore. Overall, the film is an ‘Average’ grosser.

Jolly LLB 2: The Akshay Kumar starrer managed to collect about half of what ‘Rangoon’ did, even though it was in the 3rd week of its run and had already collected more than 100 crore. Occupancy-wise Jolly LLB 2 managed to beat ‘Rangoon’ at multiplexes on some days. The film will end its run with the release of ‘Badrinath Ki Dulhania’ next week. It has collected Rs 113 crore in 3 weeks and should add around 3 crore more, to finish with lifetime business of Rs 116 crore. Hit.

Running Shaadi: In the first week, the Shoojit Sircar produced film was released on around 750 screens. It was poor in the first week, with collections of 98 lakhs. The film ends its run with net collections of 1.05 crore. Flop.

Irada: The film was released on fewer screens than Running Shaadi, the collections and occupancy of both films was similar. The film ends with net collections of 85-90 lakhs. Flop.

  • I think you should constantly post the lifetime collections and verdicts of movies . The Ghazi Attack is still running in the 3rd week and has performed well considering exams, negligible star value and no promotions . @ Indicine You should add the Tamil and Telugu collections of TGA and then post the final verdict next week . Jolly LLB 2 has done well and by next week it will be out of theatres . !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • The ghazi attack- brilliant movie.
    There was very few movies which brought tears in my eyes. TGA is one of them. When those 3 Missiles missed INS vikrant i was smiling & tears was rolling down my eyes.
    Waiting for the day when we will stop running behind stars & start liking movies which are made from hearts.

  • @3:53pm A’woman’ Tapori

    Abey idiot both films that you mentioned had an actual physical audience buying tickets on those days not like when Jadoo 3 released where the only ppl inside theatres after 5 days when the film was tanking were the theatre staff scratching their heads wondering where all the kindergarteners had gone…!
