  • rk beshram 0pening 21 cr
    roy due to negativity and filure of beshram opening day 10.1cr
    BV due to negativity and failure of roy…opening is 5 cr
    aur rk ki upcoming movie will not 20 cr unless it get huge positivity and a solo and holiday release…
    srk before ce he is not getting huge opening but after ce he got positivity which helped and result into opening of hny to 45 cr it not touched ce 227 cr lifetime …..and thats why srk will not break his own opening record …dilwale 1st day will under 20 -30…if it will clash BM than open will be under 15-20 cr..thats gonna happen than fan will suffer if it get negative response than rees…….
    same thing happens with akki …hosefull opening is 12.something cr.. his nest RR benefitted from it and mint upto 15.1 cr but again joker got huge negativity …omg suffers on its opening day ……….same thing happens again and take holiday which collected 12.5 but he relesed gis entertainment b/w to kick and SR ..jiski opening 11.75 thi …
    by the way if brothers get positivity reposnse than it will definetly help SIB …..if SIB get postive reponse than akki bring back his multipex audience but pravhudeva is there to bhai positivity ke chance kam hai……….
    psitive responce means public reponse ……which brothers is enjoying except some die hard akki hater …but kuch bhi ho I enjoying it ..
    eagerly waiting for SIB and Dilwale tamasha

  • Indicine u r spot on with ur 1st day predictions , u had predicted a 15 crore opener but some akki fans went bonkers at u mocking ur prediction skills Lol :D, I even remember one genius who happens to have similar name like me ‘BVS’ predicting 25+ crores on 1st day & 250+ crores lifetime, everyone on indicine laughed like anything, it was an innocent , harmless joke from a 7 year old boy :D

    Come on akki sir …..come on….u can do it , u can STOP ‘brothers’ from doing 100 crores, 90 crores baas hei na sir 100 crores tho distant dream ho jayega bahut he zyada hojayega aapke liye, i know that inspite of u being money minded & ever-greedy u r not OVER AMBITIOUS, ur limit is 80-90 crores & u always stay within ur limits sir u never cross ur limits sir , that’s why we all love u, we are all happy & satisfied with the 4-5 crap movies that u release every year sir.

    we want u to keep on signing more & more films sir ,we want u to release a movie every month or rather a movie every week or rather why not release a movie every single day sir , we love u sir , we want u to do 365 movies a year sir , let each one of them take 2 crore opening & each one of them collect 2 crore in their lifetime, still u would be earning 300 crores a year & ur movies would do 730 crores a year sir, we love u so much sir, please remake as many movies as possible & please do as many craps as possible we are willing to watch ur crap movie every single day sir, love u sir, u r a great comedian sir , u r the superstar version of the comedian ‘vijay raaz’ sir , we know that u try to imitate, act & mimic like vijay raaz sir as he is ur role model & inspiration , u look like healthier version of him sir, both of ur acting style are same sir but he is a better comedian than u sir, we love u sir , we want to kiss u sir , we want to……….. oh sorry can’t tell it publicly.

    ‘Brothers’ tho gaya now we are ready for ur next release sir , we are dreaming about u giving 20 crores opening sir , u have failed to give a 20 crores opening sir till now sir & ur arch rival nautanki queen has failed to give a 20 crores opening on a non-holiday sir , so sir why don’t u take each others help as u both any way need multi star cast to give hit movies , we want u & nautanki overacting queen srk in a movie so that u both can give a 20 crores opening on a non-holiday sir , all the best sir, we love u sir, we want to touch u sir , we want to kiss ur …………….oh oops sorry can’t post it publicly sir :D :D

  • @ultron
    Go and bark somewhere else …you guys (sallu fans ) are talking about self made stars?Forget how salman was launched ?By one of oldest production house of India which periodically came back and made movies to keep salman in bollywood.And sometimes big heriones,directers ,promotions,budgets could not save salman(Yuuvrag)……Success hazam karna btata ha ke bande ki aukat kia ha aur salman fans k bhonkne se pata chalta ha k success hazam karna un k bas ki baat nai ha….lagta ha sallu need another JHAKTA like he had in early 2000

  • Too much negativity around Brothers but the film isn’t that bad.Give it a try if you’re a fan of MMA and Akshay’s brilliant act.

  • Its an average movie.. a bit disappointed.. but 1 time watch jus like other movies akki this year.. the other two were cash on sentiments movies without being very good on script and screenplay like spl 26 or holiday.. n so they dint do gr8 business.. this 1 again is average.. but might collect more coz of the action genre and hype and holiday weekend!! Movie rating 2.5 mostly for akki!!.. anywhere between 95 to 120 crs!! Above average on box office!!

  • to all those insecure haters praising sid and criticizing akki…. let me tell u that throughout the movie akki has been praised for his performance and has overshadowed that kid sid in this film… its akki who has carried this film throughout…. so full credit goes to akki. Sid still has to give back to back hits as a main lead actor like his fellow mate varun…. sid last film ek villain was blockbuster that due to ritesh and sharradha and his another film hasee toh phasee (sid’s main lead film) was below average and student of the year was just a hit… so stop calling that sid a super-star koi bhi 3 movies dene ke badh super-star nahi banta… akki’s last 2 film baby and gabbar were boxoffice success

  • Dissappointing I was expecting 18-22 to be honest. 13.5 is really strange oh I mean 15.2 (lol)..Am sure @indicine will correct d actual figures in days to come. Using 15.5 now Akshay got his promotion = highest opener😀
    Jacqueline DEmotion = 2nd highest opener😔
    Sidharth DEmotion = 2nd highest opener😞😞
    Challo,,,Akshay @least broke a his 2012 record just SAD Sid n Jaq suffered a set back from their *already established*,bumper openings in 2014…………….??

  • @NVS 4.07
    Am sure it will do good business today. Sad 1st time I made a huge prediction for akshay but I was wrong. As @Navin once said,never bet a huge budget movie with akshay. Saach kaarva hota hai but once some thing keeps on repeating and repeating over n over again you just put your own bet elsewhere….Good actor but just dosent exhibit that X factor that can pull crowds…hopes he discovers it soon cos his already aging. Av not watched d movie yet d review is pretty average so will go to our nearby cinema after work to watch again Jurrasic world with my 3D lens!!!

  • @sheheer jakey apne srk ko bol ke non-holiday mein apni film release karke dekhe… phir akey baat karna… he should at least learn from his fellow mate sallu bhai who has guts to release his films during non-holiday…

  • @Asish beta kitna jhut bolega mere laal….. movie release kal hui air tune AAJ DVD kharid liya…. isise pata chalta h tu kitna samjhdar h….

  • according to boi srgay ki crappy new year 36 crore thi tab tum log toh 44 crore ka Nara lava rahe the….. tab bol rahe the boi is bakwaas n now boi ke reports par bahot yakin h…
    .. m jus thinking akki haters kitna jaloge…. apne pant me jhak kr dekho piche se dhua nikal raha hoga… its jus a opening day …… critics ki negetive review ke bawjood movie…. itni achi kr rahi h….bt atleast crappy new year, bike ki #KICK or do i say scooter ki #KICK…. D3 se thousand tyms betr h….. aur is movie me Jo action h woh tmhare khan apni Jaan de de tab v ni kr payenge amir khan ko chor kr dono khans ke lallu fans hmesha khud ko smart smjhte srgay ki capsule body par itna mat uchlo ….aur u r comparing ranbir to akshay u r forgetting his back to back 3 disasters uski ek movie ne kuch business kya kr liya …….. akshay sir movie jab jab chalti h .. haters ki gandi wali jalti h…..

  • akshay sir will repeat d history by giving 4 back to back hits In single year ……. lyk 2007…. 2012 …and now 2015….. only he can do dis….. selfmad superstar…..
    SRgay: mujhe Diwali chahiye…
    lallu : mujhe EID chahiye….
    Aamir: I want Christmas holiday ….
    akshay sir: pura saal mera h jab chahu tab aunga…. faad ke jaaunga

  • @Swanand who the hell are you to blabber about king aamir khan’s dangal? He is baap of all superstars n stardom and popularity and fan following. Dangal will be ATHG and be first movie to cross 400 crores in India itself.

  • Heyy update!!
    Many Indian family here in Johannesburg are tropping in to watch brothers. Seems d mixed reviews have some advantages towards brothers. People say the movie is good. Soo…I think I will change my mind and watch it 2mrw. If really it’s good I will post my review. For the mean time akki fans fingers cross anything can happen! A Times these reviews really could be deceptive. Wishing d movie 👍 have a nice weekends guy’s n babes!!

  • @A Khan look I am still here. Now where are you hiding? Come on face it. Despite multistarrer, young superstar Sid, commercial genre and 3500 screens it hs taken only 15 Cr opening. Now come out here to face me. I am waiting for you.

  • @Ultron
    First time i like your comments but i know you said all this for insulting SRK.
    Stop insulting & start loving if u also find BB is about Humanity then show ur humanity to everyone.

  • @aisha iqbal Its quite rare that a female is taking part in the comment section of indicine.
    There were few like fathima and one stupid srk fan-megha i guess

  • He can only beat his old movies with just a slim margin! While, Salman SRK Aamir beat one another’s movie.
    Joker is Bling!!

  • @Akki is king
    Thats why Baby+GIB+bROTHERS+SIB=WW collection of BB
    compare him with Varunwaale and Aamir
    Not with megastar like Bhai. Even Ajay is way ahead of Akshay(Reason Singham returns)

  • Indicine why r ma comments under moderation for so long…are u trying to avoid positive comments for brothers..come on indicine even a person who posted a negative comment 5 hrs later than me u hv posted it…yyyy??????

  • Hollywood biggest problem in BO analysis is each site giving different numbers!.
    In movies like krishh3 and happy new year never crossed 200 cr. !
