Brothers Friday (Day 1) Box Office Collections

Brothers has done reasonably well on its opening day at the box office. The film has collected Rs 15.2 crore net on Day 1, which has made it the second highest opening day grosser of 2015.

However, considering the budget, star-cast and banner, Brothers should have taken a bigger opening both at single-screens and multiplexes. The occupancy at metro cities was on the lower side throughout the day, even though the film did pick up at multiplexes evening onwards.

Brothers is yet another Akshay Kumar film that has fallen below trade expectations on Day 1. His last film that opened well was ‘Rowdy Rathore’ back in 2012. ‘Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai Dobaara’ also took a good start, but couldn’t sustain because of negative word-of-mouth publicity and competition from ‘Chennai Express’.

Reports from theatres is mixed, so it remains to be seen how well the film does on Independence Day holiday today (Saturday). In the last 3 years, film business has crossed the 30 crore mark on August 15th, making it one of the biggest days for the industry.

In 2012, Ek Tha Tiger shattered box office records by collecting Rs 32.92 crore on Aug 15. In 2013, the combined business of Chennai Express (Day 7) and Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai Dobaara was Rs 30.6 crore. In 2014, Singham Returns collected Rs 32.09 crore.

With two big holidays in its first weekend, Brothers has got one of the best release dates this year. The ticket prices are also on the higher side as compared to normal releases. The big question is if Brothers can take advantage of the big holiday weekend – during which the box office fate of the film will also be decided.

Check out the full list of highest opening day collections of films released in 2015. Note: Actual figures of Brothers will be updated in the noon.

  • Disappointing!! 14-15crs is really disappointing…

    Multiplex audience just does’nt trust akki anymore and Sid definitely has’nt made any difference!!
    Hope it shows growth on Saturday n Sunday.

    Also I would consider Akki unlucky here,his big films always get negativity!!

    Farah made 2 decent films with Srk but made TMK with akki.

    Milan luthria made a fantastic OUATIM with ajay,emraan but ruined the sequel.

    Now,Brothers was under a big production house,with a director who had a successful superhit behind him and a remake of a cult Hollywood film but still despite Akki’s tremendous efforts the film has been bashed by the critics.

  • Feeling really sad for sid.if brothers fails to bcm a hit then v have to accept that so far this year has been underwhelming for bollywood and can b called decent to good bcz of extraordinary performance of 2films-bb and twmr

    hopefully it will pick up in the remaining months.after an excellent 2011-2014 bo wise this year has been somewhat disappointing

  • Khans are competing for 40 cr on Day 1 and 300 cr lifetime, meanwhile our Khiladi Kumar is busy with less than 15 cr opening day collections and less than 100 cr lifetime business. Respect.

  • Watched Brothers. Good production values, good action scenes.Akshay is brilliant. He’s the best part of the film and he fights like a pro.Sid looks good in the action scenes but his acting is disappointing.The emotional quotient failed big time but it isn’t that bad like the critics are saying. I personally enjoyed the second half because I’m a huge fan of MMA and wrestling. It is a one time watch for it’s action (first ever MMA fights in Bollywood) and because of Akki’s performance.

  • “Akshay release 4 films every year. Lets join the first day figures of all 4 films and show it as 1 figure and compare it with a Khan film opening day collection of 1 film” – Akki Fans Logic

  • @indicine::What could be the reason for Brothers below expected opening? Only Akki is responsible??

  • Brothers may not cross 55cr on its weekned n 100cr looks difficult best of luck Sid for kapoor n sons.. sidlia will rock

  • Khans movie are crossing 150 crores in overseas and akshay movie’s are not been able to cross 150 crores in domestic markey….
    Too much fun

  • Saw brothers late nite shw. All those planning to watch.. ! Only Akshay is good. overall movie is nt much intresting n sid really sucks. Watch only if u r akshay fan.

  • Every time a trailer of an Akki film is released, I get so excited and think this would surely cross Rowdy opening but don’t what’s happening,I thought Brothers had everything going its way but still when D Day comes I am told my Mr Indicine that the occupancy is lower than ABCD2.
    Feeling really disappointed today and I won’t be having any expectations in future from an akki film as far as box office is concerned but yes I will definitely have expectations from Akki The Actor coz he is really in top form as an ACTOR these days be it holiday,Baby,Gabbar or Brothers,his performance has been unanimously loved by critics.

  • Below expectations 👎
    The collections are equal to abcd which released during ramzan with 2600 screens and brothers has a wide release with 3500 screens and higher ticket price . Dissapointed 👎

  • Brothers

    () Everybody complaining about 1st half BT I really liked it . it’s quite well shot , little slow BT not bad at all . story telling in detail was necessary ..!

    ()it’s 2nd half which dissapointed me not because it was bad BT because I was expecting much more .. Director should hve cut down those unnecessary slow scenes which made the audience irritated .. Too slow nd just after a high energy fight ,he suddenly slowed down the audience by putting emotional scenes. Audience ka josh thanda phir garam phir thanda phir garam, dat was the problem .He should hve made the whole 2nd half energetic nd dramatic in a crispy way .The fighting scenes should hve been little more Engaging BT still there was some good moments in 2nd half & Action scenes were still top notch

    ()Akshay Kumar was brilliant , he looked so good on screen nd not just his fighting scenes BT his acting nd body language ws also amazing. He salvaged The Film ..!

    ()Another problem iz that The Director gave all the dialogues to Jacky shroff. He should hve gave more dialogues to akki nd sid too .

    ()The climax iz the best part of the movie nd sid was also equally good in the climax nd it’s emotionaly as well as visually fantastic ..! Big plus point ..!
    () Ashutosh Rana surprise package SUPERB

    Overall I m not dissapointed nd as a die hard Akshay Kumar fan ,i loved it ..!
    If u can survive those slow scenes then its a must watch , u will like it guranteed..!

  • @Babaji yes same point I was trying to mention

    Kmbht ishq -→ Looked like a clear superhit, took housefull opening all over BT critics thrashed it nd became flop

    Blue -→ Looked like a clear superhit, took housefull start BT critics thrashed it nd became flop

    TMK -→ Looked like a clear superhit, took housefull opening BT critics thrashed it nd became flop

    Ouatimd -→ Looked like a clear superhit, took housefull opening BT critics thrashed it nd became flop

    Now brothers -→ looking like a clear superhit, hasn’t took housefull opening BT tomorrow will be housefull nd critics r already thrashing it. ..verdict – pending …suspense

    This is a sad part of Akshays career …!
    Unlucky Akshay kumar

  • I have the maximum amount of fun by reading the old comments of Indicine readers.. Yesterday when Indicine predicted 15.5 crore on first day.. here’s what Akki fans said

    Sunny Chechi – It will do around 17-18 on first dAy.. 2nd day can touch 30 CR’s

    SSK – indicine this time u wrong kyuki is bar boxoffice pe tufan aa rha hai

    BVS – Now indicine will definitely get outnumbered… 255+ confirmed.. 25cr on day 1 confirmed..

    Lunatic fringe – Brothers will be Blockbuster does not matter if song did not got a good response from audiences i am sure will make a strom with 17-18 crore opening and lifetime 160-170 crore + Brothers will be Blockbuster mark my words.

    Bipin – My prediction for sat,sun 24cr,25cr

    Babaji Ka Thullu – My prediction will be 17.5crs first day!! Second day will be huge..

    Element – 1st day= 20cr. 2nd day= 30cr. 3rd day= 28cr.

    Vikyat Roy – Totally wrong.. Advanced report&other sites show-55% occupancy on day 1 are compulsory. In 3700 (expected) So 1st day will be huge (19 cr.


  • Varun’s ABCD2 collected over 15cr on 1st day.

    Akki’s brothers have failed to achieve that even with multistarcast.

    Very sad day for akkians.

  • feeling sad for kid sid after ek villn opening its one step down

    at best case
    lifetime-below 120

  • Akkians are punished due to the negativities they did for Bajrangi Bhaijaan. Hope, they will remember this punishment and keep their mouth close for PRDP.

  • Buddhaji:
    Aren’t you the same guy who have barked too much on critics at noon???? Now you started praising critics for loving akki’s performances….. Chameleonism on its peak…!!!

    @sunny chachi:
    Watch Akki movies on theatres rather posting Bullshits here. Warna wo din door nahi jab akki aur tushar kapur ka naam ek saath liye jayenge….LOL.

  • So sad for Akshay and Sid. I watched it in Dubai yesterday and the cinema was full and we enjoyed it with my cousins. Truely critics are very harsh on some films but Brothers ia a good film with emotional quotient. Enjoy it and forget critics

  • Rawdy Rathod was a Prabu Deva’s film and Singh Is Bling is also being made by him, so SIB is that Akki movie that can cross 150cr mark in my opinion, as far as Brothers is concerned i have never felt excited about it since its launch and even the promos didn’t appeal to me, and what is worst is that the film’s content itself is below average as per feed-back. I am sure the film will struggle to beat Baby’s collections, the story of OUATIMD is repeating itself. It is really sad to say that only Aamir and Salman are doing films that are exciting and commercialy viable!

  • @Mohit’: Want even more fun??? Go and read comments on happy new year articles where your companions were not talking of anything less than 300-400crs!!!

  • @Babaji
    dnt worry akki wil b back at box office
    nadiawala is thinking abt making MSK 2 with salman n akshay

    i am joking… housefull 3 is coming baby with housefull boards
