  • I bought a Brothers DVD and watched it…… I became bored watching only 30 mins and fast forwarded to the last fight scene to know who will win the match………..kahani khatam, wasted my 20 rupees…

  • Jacqueline is the biggest star in this film with a 25cr opening

    then sid and at last gobar bhaiyya

  • Box Office King..
    1.Salman Khan
    2.Aamir Khan
    3.Shahrukh Khan
    4.Hrithik Roshan
    5.Ajay Devgan
    6.Ranbir Kapoor…
    Kaha Gaya AKKI !!!!!!

  • SINGH IS BLING will be the first movie Of akshay kumar jo 30cr+ ka OpeninG karegi…

  • With four films every year u wil not get record breaking openings. Only salman can break records even with 2 or 3 films in a year

  • As per someone most trustworthy website BOI….Brothers has not collected more than that of ABCD2….so i dnt know what now they will say!! Bt i trust Indicine….15.2 is for me!! Bt still it is disappointing Collection as there were so many favourable factors like Good release dage,big cast,biggest banner….high production value,item song from a famous actress,wide release,high ticket price…everything!! Still it has just beaten RR which released back in 2012!!! Very disappointing….let’s see where it reaches finally!!

  • Well watched BRothers today,
    The film started off well but after that it gets slow a bit
    And after sometime it gets dragged and u feel what is going on…but it is tolerable( not that bad).
    The second half takes the film to another level .
    It has some terrific action scenes.
    Great performances.
    Good pace and u feel like WOW…
    Akki rocks here , sid is ok-ok.
    Overall My Rating- 3.25/5
    First half- 2/5
    Second half- 4.5/5

  • 1)Brothers was not a mass masala movie.
    2)Genre was quiet violent,which meant sid’s factor was negated as girls don’t like to watch such movies.
    3) People do not have much awareness about the MMA sports and all. Plus boxing is not so popular in India.
    4) combined with some sort of online negativity were the factors which led to the collections which were a bit below expectations.

  • Disappointing !!! Brothers needs 30-32 Cr. nett today which looks impossible at the moment. Anything less than 30 Cr. nett will be a really bad result for the movie.

  • Lololololol ABCD had 14.5Crs In Ramadan and Heavy Mumbai rains with 2500 screens and Brothers Makes Just 15Crs?? Are Bhai HNY ne negative WOM ke saath 15Crs Monday Ko Diya Tha!! Ek Villain ne 16.8Crs diya tha!! Akki Ki Star Power Itna hi hai?? 3500Screens?? Chennai Express Also Released In 3500 Screens only!! YJHD Also 3200 Screens!! Ab batao Akki Bhai kya hai ye??

  • Not good ! It is a big film maybe the biggest of AK but numbers are vry avg !
    It needs 2 grow huge 2day unless it will be a nother dissapointment frm AK!

  • Brothers will surely cross 400 crores in India nett. Even with mixed review akki can break PK’s record in India alone. And then akki will open 500 Cr club in 2 months after Singh Is Bling release. Mark my words. Because I say so. Narayan narayan narayan. :-D
