Love Games8 AprilFlop1.

Wazir: The first big release of 2016 didn’t open well at the box office, but remained steady for 2 weeks. The film found appreciation in 5-10 cities, which eventually helped it become an average grosser. Average.

Airlift: Akshay Kumar’s first release of 2016 wasn’t ‘hot’ in the trade prior to release and domestic theatrical rights did not fetch a big price either, but Airlift was one of those films that got its economics right, which helped the film become the first ‘Super Hit’ of the year. Pre-release expectations as 70-75 crore range, but Airlift should finish with lifetime business of 125 crore and become the highest January grosser of all time. It’s also Akshay’s second highest career grosser. The contribution of Airlift for the month of January was more than 50%. Super Hit.

Kya Kool Hain Hum 3: A section of the trade expected Kya Kool Hain Hum to outgross Airlift, but the end result was outright rejection from the audience. KKHH3 was the biggest disappointment of January. Flop.

Mastizaade: The Sunny Leone starrer opened to a reasonably good response and sustained fairly well too. The official figures suggest the film has just about recovered costs. Average.

Saala Khadoos: Rajkumar Hirani’s name was expected to help generate interest around Saala Khadoos, but the audience did not turn up at theatres to watch the R. Madhavan starrer. It didn’t get the kind of critical acclaim that such films need to grow on word-of-mouth, which sealed its fate by the end of its first weekend. Flop.

Fitoor: Opened to disastrous response and tanked without a trace. Katrina Kaif’s career hit an all-time low with Fitoor.

Neerja: Opened slow, but gained momentum over the weekend. Was fantastic in Week 1 and eventually went on to become the 2nd highest grosser of 2016 after Airlift. Yet another film that was based on a true event.

Jai Gangaajal: Priyanka Chopra didn’t promote the film as much as she should have. The film didn’t open well, the word-of-mouth wasn’t good either. Flop.

Kapoor & Sons: The Sidharth Malhotra, Alia Bhatt and Fawad Khan starrer open fairly well at the box office and showed good growth over the weekend – even though the Saturday collections of the film was affected by the India vs Pakistan World Cup match. During the weekdays, the film came into its own, recording fantastic collections for nearly 2 weeks.

The Jungle Book: The biggest surprise of the year came in the form of ‘The Jungle Book’. In the next few days, the film will go on to be biggest grosser of 2016 ahead of Akshay Kumar’s Airlift. It has also severely affected the business of Shah Rukh Khan’s FAN.

FAN: The biggest release of the year featured Shah Rukh Khan in the lead. It was expected to open well, it did. It was expected to grow further on word-of-mouth, but that didn’t happen as the business of the film began to falter on Day 2 itself. The crash on Monday has sealed its fate. First Shah Rukh Khan flop after 2005’s Paheli, that in itself is the most shocking trade news of 2016.
