ADHM records 6th highest opening day, Shivaay 10th

Karan Johar’s Ae Dil Hai Mushkil has recorded the 6th highest opening day collections of 2016. The opening has been marked as ‘excellent’ because not only was it competing against a bigger film, but also released during the ‘pre-diwali’ period. The level of opening is same as Akshay Kumar’s Rustom.

The other release of the week, Ajay Devgn’s Shivaay, has made it to the Top 10. The fate on Day 1 was similar to Mohenjo Daro, but the word-of-mouth for Shivaay seems to be better.

Sultan remains the film to beat this year. Unless Dangal springs a big surprise, Sultan should retain the top spot.

  • And actually Shivaay is in 12th position after Udta Punjab(taking 9.15cr Shivaay first day).
    Manipulation is not good, As Salman will bear the responsibility of bringing manipulation with his ETT back in 2012 when he did 14 cr manipulation(199 cr manipulated fig, but actual was 185 cr). But the team who took it to the sky level was Rakesh Roshan and Hrithik with a humongous 68 cr for Krrish 3.( manipulated fig 244 cr, actual 176 cr).

  • Watched shivaay !! seriously it was not upto the mark. I dont like ajay devgn as a person but he is a good actor. I was expecting a good movie but eventually it disappoints.
    Wish that it recover costs for ajay devgn as lots of money is on stake.
    Will watch #adhm tomorrow. Having huge expectations from adhm too.

  • I dont know why ajay took risk on this multiplex dumb audience as they do not understand the meaning of cinema….how many times you must have seen romantic rom com type of movie…..plz i request all the producers and directors do not waste your money for this dumb audience….have better sense of cinema art, can’t u multiplex audience get bored by this stupid rom com triangle movies, nahi bhai ham toh mission impossible dekhe ge nahi nahi hm toh spider man dekhe ge nahi nahi nahi ham toh FF8-9-10-15-100 dekhe ge kyon ki hm c….he na, we kno where ur IQ level stands u multiplex audience ur on same level as Alia Bhattt, which u stupid audience will prefer as next supr heroin…hahahahaha

  • Why well known trade analyst Taran Adarsh hasn’t posted Adhm overseas collections ????
    So much hypocrisy, so much jealousy …
    Let it remain unsaid that 13 crores of Adhm is very good & I’m very happy that the movie has retained sixth spot here.

    /* but Seriously nobody is gonna believe in figures of Shivaay which should have been honest but not. Now seriously Shivaay will find it tough to cross 70 crores in its entire run unless Ajay devgaan’s calculator creates the same magic which Rakesh Roshan’s calculator did during Diwali 2013.

  • Where is @ darkasht @ ajay rocks hiding their faces they said only big star get festivals what happened struggle to cross 12 crore even akki limited appeal movie Rustom & airlift crossed 12 & 14 respectively now Ajay is nothing without Rohit Shetty . Waiting Golmaal return only sequel will save his carrier .

  • @indicine.. Any particular reason for categorizing FAN opening as only Good? I mean with no songs, no heroine a total of 19cr should be categorized as Excellent.

  • Watched both ADHM & Shivaay today. Since I don’t have much time these days, I am gonna just leave some brief comments on my experiences of both films.

    An entertaining and fun riding 1st half! Certainly, enjoyable!
    But it has nothing new but mash up of his earlier films with some concept of friendship of girls and boys.
    Ranbir rocked. Anuska rocked. Fawad excelled.
    Aish looked smoking hot in every frame but she is in the film only to do lusty scenes. She made entry only in the second half.

    It is not suitable for the family audiences at all. Not even for the married couple. There is so much betrayals and stuffs of extramarital affairs.

    My rating: 2/5*****


    Shivaay starts on ordinary node. Shivaay is a mountain hiker and hiking guide in Himalya. He and Olga fell in love and had a girl child. She is a mute by birth, her mom left them.

    As she grew up, when she came to know her mom is alive, she desperately wants to her. Her gather took her to Bulgaria to make her meet her mom.

    She gets kidnapped. The real story starts.
    Although, it was advertised as an action film, it tackled some hard hitting issues like human trafficking and flesh trade.

    It is a must watch although sometimes the pace of the film slows down. In short, it is Ajay Devgn’s Bajrangi Bhaijaan.
    Well shot, well directed, well after… Suitable for all sections of audiences.

    My rating: 3.5/5*****

  • Srk – The coward

    Look whose fan base are vomiting shit all the time in Ajay article. Ajay knew he is going to fight against Kjo who is one of the most powerful person in the industry backed by 2 powerful artist 1.Anushka the leading lady of two 300 cr grosser & the most powerful artist of the movie. 2. Aishwarya rai who is the darling of masses. Still Ajay is fighting who is the sole crowd puller of his movie

    I am surprised to see plutorian barking about CLASH. They forgot the SURGICAL STRIKE Sultan team did with them. Sultan team was all set to fight & win the battle but they didn’t knew the lead of the opponent was a coward just watching a 50s teaser they packed & ran away 1000 miles (from June to January) relentlessly like a coward & made sure they are safe.

    Dear Maya memsab fans never ever take part in the clash articles it is for the brave actor fans not for coward fans

    If srk is a man enough to claim himself duniya ka sabse bada superstar than Salman is giving him 2 more chances Salman booked EID as well as CHRISTMAS for next year, Ask ur srk if he has the balls to face Salman. Open challenge from a SALMANIAC

  • @aashish
    Agree! I wanted to puke when SRK appeared on screen.
    Ranbir, Aishwarya, Anushka, Fawad – all beautiful actors…. and then came the disgusting SRK.

  • Don’t know why they put SRK in such a young and beautiful actors film…
    All were so beautiful and young. And then we have to bear the torture of looking at SRK’s face in a cameo.

  • ADHM is super bakwas movie same old movie a heroine died in the end due to cancer, what society Karan is showing this is India respect the culture Ashwaria what she is doing in the movie?? Promos mai promote kiya Ash ko bug movie mai she has less then 30minutes role in the movie.

  • Ranbir with clash gonna bit global queen solo festival release fan which got the backing of 2 partial holiday & 1 national holiday in first weekend itself. Admit it or not Ranbir is a bigger star than MAYA.

  • @javed.., you srk already take Rakesh’s ji calculator when HNY release time.. after srk didn’t pay back to Rakesh ji. So, How can Ajay take that calculator?
    Wait and watch Shivaay sure cross FAN LT collection.

  • Top 10 superstar of India today according to their box office stamina

  • saw shivaay today I liked expect climax scene between Ajay and her daughter.. should have trimed atlest by 20 mins.. ending little boring otherswise it’s good movie..
