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.

  • @Brother Babaji.. that’s not SRK’s fault my friend.. Blame Farah for it.

    Biggest responsibility for an actor is opening and Akshay sir has failed each and every time. Holiday 20 crore.. Baby 15 crore.. Gabbar 20 crore.. Brothers 25 crore.. What happened?

    SRK’s rejected film in 2011 did more than what Akki films are doing in 2015. Don’t even get into that comparison.

    Remember.. Akshay fans complain that his movies don’t get good release dates.. but this time.. big banner, big release, high ticket prices.. still opening hasn’t crossed 15.

    Only SRK, Aamir, Salman and Hrithik are superstars.. noone else can do 20 crore opening.

  • Lol and so many people here comparing akshay with khans. .i know akki is a very good actor Bt he’s NT croud puller like khans…if Salman had done tees maar khan then it will become blockbuster as well .just like hppy new year…i hve request for akkis fans ..instead of commenting here u guys shoul go theaters and buy tickets will make some difference and film will pass 100 Cr…

  • Hahaha Brothers has underperformed and this cartoon creature @Tiger is acting as if he is GOD!!
    Beta chuhe,marigold itne jaldi mat bhool.

    This same Akki has beaten your tapori bhaijaan twice in head on clash!!

    Garam Masala vs KyuKi

    Blue vs Mrs Khanna

  • @babaji yes akki should change his policy of 4 films per year to be very honest.
    Releasing tung tung song of singh is bliing before the release of another movie is plain stupidity

  • @Mohit, don’t chant about others comments. better you should worry about how people will mock your, sss, javed and iamAKN’s quotes after the under performance of upcoming crapfest Varunwaale. be prepared. and yeah, what happened to the “Charlie-300 crores storm”?????? :) :D

  • It may cross 100 Crores I feel!
    Yet, our joker boy’s fans will cry that he doesn’t get good release dates.

    @Cunning Thulla, The reason behind Bhojpuri Brothers not working well is the fans of Akki like you. I personally, maybe a few others here too, didnt go to watch the movie because your irritating behaviour and jealousy towards some superstars.
    critics’ reviews don’t matter much if the actor in the film is a superstar/megastar. For instances, Ready and Bodyguard were thrashed by one and all. But they were blockbusters. Now, stop crying, Budde, with a depreciating brain!
    Chameleon budda, joker boy is not simply made for big movies. He should do 7-8 small movies per year.

  • @babaji lol u really think main aur mrs khanna was made for hit i think it was just for fun so as kyuki that same blue of ur star failed to cross wanted when salman has done 1 good movie remember when salman is in form no one csn beat him now.forget about past.

  • this shows that ajay is way ahead of akshay in stardom
    My favourites

  • Cant cross 15cr n yet some funny fanny chachi was predicting 25cr opening n some bhojpori buddha chanting 175cr first week…!

  • Karan had got the casting completely wrong for Brothers. Jackie n Sid should have played warring siblings n that joker boy should have been their drunk father…! Would have been more realistic…!

  • 3 flops already this yr n another dud is on its way with Joker is Sardar…!

    Only joker boy can show such consistency in underperformance….!

  • The reason behind brothers failure is bhai
    And angoor khan fans !!!
    they started spreading negativity since
    the trailer came out !!!!
    I am srk fan but I always supported brothers to become a big hit but becoz of
    aamir and bhai fans it failed to meet our
    expectations !!!
    Akki fans should not forget bhai’s fans hatred towards akki !!
    especially, this new scum Rew 1 .

  • @babaji ka thullu HNY still collected 204 cr inspite of bad reviews while floppy kumar is struggling for 100 cr lifetime. Lol. Someone rightly said Akki should beg on streets.

  • Hahaha this is the aukaat of akshay kumar,his idiot fans keep on chanting that akki’s film doesnot perform bcoz he doesnot get holiday release.Now what’s the excuse idiot akki fans.And u were comparing this joker with khans.LOL

  • @indicine. You guys should know a basic fact. Is there any need to compare independence day recent releases with brothers release? I mean come on let’s face fact you people named ek tha tiger,chennai express and singham returns right? Do remember that the 3 movies u named has 1. Salman Khan 2. Shah rukh khan 3.Ajay Devgn. Pls note akshay kumar has his on league competitors with Varun Sid Saif Arjun Farhan akther!! Period!! You don’t expect these league B actors to attain 20 crores talkless of 30 crores plus+?? Just allow them to be competing against themselves while you exclude league A crowd puller even if it’s once in their lifetime who gave 30 crores above. Am telling you even if Akshay does a movie with Kabir khan Rohit shetty or Hirani he has his own limited star power!! The earlier it is for their fans to realise the better. It’s not fair putting akshays fans in a dreamland or fantasy world. That’s just the bitter truth.
    My condolence to all Akshay fans. Sorry guys just wait for next generation not in this world Akshay can give a 25 crores opener. Hope the movie will recover its cost that’s what akkians should be thinking of despite all the advantages Brothers had to give a higher grosser.

  • Saw last night. Baby & Gobar was better than this shit. My rating is 1.5/5 for Sid & Jac. Akshay gobar Kumar should get National award for combined (Baby, Gobar & this floped remake) shits.

  • Hey salman fans why every time you spreading negativity.?
    Don’t you think after watching Baby,Gabbar akshay sir deserve success.?
    It is third time in a single year when akshay sir performance is praised by everyone.
    Be honest and think about akshay sir & his dedication towards his work recently he injured himself while performing stunts for SIB.
    Sitting & commenting bad about anyone is very easy

  • @sunny talkative, from 25 crores to 22 crores to 17 crores opener before the movie released just summarizes lunatics like you. What do you mean by “looked like giving a bumper” you called over 10 movies you said their trailer looked as if akki movies would generate???
    DIFFERENCE BETWEEN HAASS fans vs JOKER fans is that there is a bridge of gap hence fact is
    HAASS fans never uses the words LOOKED LIKE and HAASS fans watch their superstars movies in house packed cinema halls!, while JOKERS fans watch his movies ONLINE and on PIRATED DVDS. this has been happening for years now!
    Next time while senior guys are talking you just stay quite and listen rather than going from one fan blog to another critizing their superstars and
    Overhyping Maaki. Do you understand? Good boy!
    **meaning of HAASS — HRITIK AAMIR AJAY SHAH SALMAN. *** no more entry till they retire from acting. HAASS gave joker enough time, excellent directors ,cool release dates,enough time to improve his star power and crowd pull effect but no way! Joker never ever bothered about his fans except money while you his fans keep on worshipping an Unknown entinty not aware of you fans existence!!
    STATUTORY ADVICE—–time is really moving fast so better let go of your undue idol while youbecome a new fan of one of the YOUNGISTAN sorry yaar koi bhi option bakhi nehi hai. 😟😟😟😟😟

  • Independence August 15 Gurus
    Salman opening day > joker + villain+ jaq
    Shah rukh opening > joker + villain + jaq
    Ajay Devgan opening > joker + villain+ jaq

  • Remember the moment when srk’s fan prediction about BB was 150 cr & now the movie collection are double… remember the moment when they predicted 400 crs for HNY & collected only half of it

  • Feeling bad for Akshay as I was expecting BROTHERS to be successful both critically and commercially.The film was looking very interesting from the trailer.It was the first Akki film in recent years that excited me.I was planning to watch it on very first day but could not watch because of personal reasons.Akki should do a classic comedy (Unlike Entertainment but like hera pheri)to get break through.I just love Akki in comedy movies.

  • @2:07 am: yes, the reason is simple. it’s akki’s greed for doing multiple films and paying less attention to the script. his only passion is for money money and money. he has no dedication for which a true actor requires for a film which has substance as well as quality. some morons like you consider it as stamina or hard work but in sensible people’s book, it’s considered “greed”. now understand the difference.

  • Current Top 5 male stars of Bollywood

  • Want to support akshay bcoz he is very very good actor but can’t it is matter of shame for aamir fan to support akki bcoz his three film collection is less than D3 Forget PK

  • Akshay destroyed his Career by doing 4 movies in a year.
    Akshay can get 90% opening by releasing his film only in SS.
