  • Tamasha will do more biz than salman’s prdp which is releasing 2 weeks after it……..!!…

    N tamasha’s final figure will be more than srk’s dilwaale…..!!..
    Wait for biggest storm tamasha of 2015…..!!….

  • heyy….. i suggested this artical…. n here u go…..
    indicine ur fab yt … home of bollywood lovers … too gud…

  • @indicine.

    plz post articles on big movies budget of 2015:-
    bajrangi bhaijaan

  • quite confident that Bajrangi bhaijaan will b 1 of d most worst films of 2015.bajrangi bhaijaan will not run in multiplex at all and will b biggest disaster of 2015 beating bv.

  • baby 2 is coming…..
    we r waiting…. for me baby is most liked action film in recent times…problm is it gt distributed on mobile aot… still its hit fr me

  • can any 1 tell me why hawaizaada is 3cr n ab tak chappn 7 cr…. wen hawaizaada trailer was quite gud

  • Gabbar is back has budget of 70 cr and collected 84 cr then it is a hit then why baby having budget 73 cr and collecting 96 cr is above avg….strange..!!
    give the reson…..!!!

  • Akshay Kumar Baby + Gabbar is back = 180 crore …. He is a parallel industry.
    I am glad that Indicine declared Gabbar is back a HIT!!
    I think following reasons affected Gabbar is Back
    1. Marathi superhit movie Time pass 2.
    2. IPL season.
    3. Nepal earthquake ( northern India slightly affected)
    4.Competiton from Piku ( very good word of mouth)
    5. Bombay Velvet ( took away a lot of screens)
    6. Now Tanu Weds Manu Returns ( carrying super word of mouth)

  • ohhh…. sambuddha….. nw this time whope ur back baby..
    i knw ur mental condition is terrible after BV…thts why u thnk BB will be disaster… dnt wry morning shows of bajrangi bhaaijan will earn more than lifetime of bombey velvet ….n u still dnt cry salman will help arjun to get his plastic surgery so he will look less like MONKEY…. if surgery nt successful,.. bhai will help him to get lead monkey roal in planet of apes ….then he can feel gud with his pollard like lips…

  • Biggest Flop should be PREM RATAN DHAN PAYO… Nothing interesting to offer.. Age old looking film… Also clash with GHAYAL ONCE AGAIN..

  • @indicine:

    1. Piku is a Superhit as its lifetime figure should be around 75-78 crores!

    2. One question!
    According to your post, the budget of Gabbar (70 crores) is nearly equal to that of Baby (73 crores). So if Baby is an “above average” with around 97 crores, then how can Gabbar be a Hit with just 85 crores? Either change Gabbar’s verdict to average/above average or change Baby to Hit..

    • @Nipun, India rights of Gabbar Is Back was sold for 41 crore. Baby was distributed by A.A. Films on commission basis. Theatrical business was just about decent. Also, Gabbar Is Back Satellite rights has fetched excellent price, because the film is much more massy. Film like Baby doesn’t have much value, as far as satellite rights is concerned.

      Overall, Gabbar Is Back is a much more profitable film.

  • My prediction for the rest of the films this year:

    Dil dhadakne do: 70crs


    ABCD2: 60crs


    Bajrangi bhaijaan:230crs





    Singh is bling:85crs




  • Brothers will be blockbuster film for akki & will collect more than his previous highest grossing film rowdy rathore

  • Wht is Dat Indicine
    how can u Give biggest opening by calculating screen size
    too ?
    wht is wrong With u ?
    it’s simple gabbar is biggest opener ! disappointed Article .
    gabbar 13.5
    tnwr 8.75…
    if twmr had done 10 then maybe u can call it biggest opener bt now no chance….
    TWMR is best WOM movie not biggest opener…
    also Y u have not told biggest Grosser nd biggest opener in terms of collection only…? bcos boht categories will go to Akshay Kumar movies ?
    nd yaah baby collected 97 cr so it cannot be called unprofitable !!

  • Wait for bajrangi bhaijaan for biggest opening ,biggest weekend and gross collection both overseas and domestic and biggest chartbuster songs.
    And also wait for the third class lungiwale FAN to break the record of worst film ,worst opening and worst collection.

  • Movies I m looking forward to:

    Hamari Adhuri kahaani
    MSD Biopic

  • just tell me how can u call TWMR biggest opener ..

    just tell me how TWMR is biggest opener . first of all ur logic is questionable bt Ok .
    lets see here .
    gabbar 13 Cr in 3050 Screens.
    TWMR 8.7 in 2200 screens .
    if we Do it half Then TWMR has collect 4.35 cr in 1100 screens…nd if we multiply 1100 into 3 means 3300 screens nd if we multiply 4.35 into 3 then total collection comes exact 13.5 ..equal to gabbar bt 250 screens R extra of TWMR …
    so logically its also proved gabbar is biggest opener .
    this is little Rayta failaana logic :P bt I just want to prove dat indicine is little biased against Akki .

  • why is there a different verdicts on baby and gabbar? both of the films have similar budget and both earned just a little bit more than the budget.

  • Piku and Tanu weds manu collections are super ! it also tells the story that in Bollywood khans n hritik roshan are the only superstars ! Others doesn’t have the power to generate initial revenues for makers !

  • Gabbar would ended something above 100cr if piku was failed. Gabaar was a good film having great script (though over the top) and fantastic performance of Akshay.
    TWMR is undoubtly the best opener this year, though GIB is ahead in terms of collection but you can see on second day it collected more than GIB which is huge.
    Biggest hit so far is TWMR followed by piku.
    Biggest hit which having young actor in lead- Badlapur
    Surprise success- Dum laga k heisha
    Underperformer- Baby,GIB (either of one should be 100cr grosser)
    Most Profitable actor- Akki with two film success
    Most Disappointed actor- Ranbir with Roy and BV

  • @sky please include srk,sallu,aamir as disappointing actors as they don’t have guts to release film on non-holiday like youngistaan.

  • Every time u predicted 65 – 72 cr for akshay kumar movie but u completely fail every time in case of baby and GabbarIsBack again ur predict will fail and singh is bling will do biz more than 90 cr and brothers will do 160 cr but my question is why this unfair prediction for akshay movie every time please reply

  • Dear Indicine…Plz explain

    Gabbar – 70 – 85 plus is Hit and why
    Baby – 73 – 96 plus is above average
