Box office Prediction: De Dana Dan

With the opening weekend being most crucial for almost every biggie that releases in Bollywood, De Dana Dan opens this weekend worldwide, amidst big expectations.

Akshay Kumar is yet to score a HIT this year after Chandni Chowk To China (Flop), 8 x 10 Tasveer (Flop), Kambakht Ishq (Average) and Blue (Average) all grossing way below expectations.

De Dana Dan though, with a medium budget and the return of the Hera Pheri team, seems most likely to be Akshay’s first commercial success of the year. Not to forget Katrina Kaif, who is on a dream run off late.

Here’s our box office prediction for De Dana Dan.

  • Opening weekend –  22 crores nett gross
  • Week 1 Total (IF BAD)  28 – 30 crores
  • Week 1 (IF GOOD) 32 – 35 crores
  • Overall (IF BAD) 40 – 42 crores
  • Overall (IF GOOD) – 60 – 65 crores

Verdict – HIT, irrespective of how the film turns out to be. If good, possibility of BLOCKBUSTER status.

    please ban this guys Amish, he thowrs the comments to tow some kind of agenda and if you do research, you will find from his posts that he thows comments totally against the reviews of Indicine team , which is acceptable if once in a while it happens , but he does all the time which is very clear that, he is om some kind of agenda to degrade this website , he does plagerism by picking comments from other websites and alter them and post here and on the basis of my rigours research , I found that this “self declared critic” “AMISH” got the comments from the web site they have reviews against and he trys to mention comments from the critics who have biased opinion about Indicine team and their wesite , I feel that “Amish” is the fake ID from some competetor’s website of Indicine team to damage Indicine reputation and also there were previous postings where another user “Bristi” was praising “AMISH” crazily, by posting “Amish, where are you? your reviews was so ggod and authentic about that film, you are the best, which movie should we watch?” like “Amish is some kind of best trade analyst about bollywood trade and box office, and I am 100 % sure “Bristi” was the same person as “Amish” to promote “Amish credibility”, because most of the time “Amish” was giving his reviews against Indicine analysis and reviews but “Amish” was doing so quietly about I was monitoring this culprit and informing you this “Amish” is fake and on some agenda of aome other bollywood website,


  • Indicine..yu suk a55..who gives a F bout yur review..people’s review matters the most.. and it is already out. im in OZ n i watched it yesterday as well.. its the third bollywood movie this year.. its def def.. 3.5 outta 5.

    n yea.. AK is a AK47..unstoppable, firin comic one liners like bullets and not missin the spot, he hits his target with a ease and walk away leavin you holdin yor tummy and jaw dropped on the floor. loved his wrk. Johny is excellent, hez talented and this is his best work EVER. Paresh and suniel come second in the race after AK n JOhny. confusion is handled well by director well, direction and story is not confused at all but the situation in the movie is. it riddles and riddles and climax is literally a blast (of water). im not big bollywood fan but hardly miss priya+akki combo..

    btw.. Akki, yur home boi. feel safe, cuz this movie’s gonna hit the jackpot. can easily beat the business of previous blockbusters this year….

    ciao everyone!

  • indicine team

    what was the total budget of the film, i.e. how much needs to be recovered ?

    and why do you say it should be a sure shot hit if it only does 25 crore in the first week ?

  • hey people

    have you all realised katrina kaif has given more hits than any other actress ? and not just hits but HUGE hits.

    her last two films were big hits i.e. new york – big hit, ajab prem ki ghazab kahani – blockbuster. and of course prior to this singh is kinng and welcome both creating box office records.

    katrina appears to be thesingle most successful heroine in bollywood at the moment with an almost 100% success record ! her films seem to gurantee success.

    surely she must then be considered the no.1 heroine in bollywood ? surely. she has given more hits than anyone else. so why is she not no.1 ? and less successful heroines like kareena kapoor and priyanka ”fat lips” chopra are considered no1 ? their films have not even earned half the money katrinas films have earned.

    this is extreme prejudice against katrina probably because she is a foreigner.

  • Q. Which film is the biggest hit of the year so far?

    A. Wanted is the biggest hit of 2009 till date from all Hindi films followed by Love Aaj Kal although Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani may cross the business of Love Aaj Kal. 2012 is the biggest hit of all films released this year in the All India market.

  • Agar ye flop b hue to koi baat nahi.

    Tasveer- 22
    KI- 104
