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.

  • Akshay destroyed his Career by doing 4 movies in a year.
    Akshay can get 90% opening by releasing his film only in SS.
    For multiplex audience 3-4 trailer & 1 movie is more than sufficient.
    Don’t you think akkians

  • Story of Prem Ratan Dhan Payo

    Salman Khan is in double role of King Ratan and his lookalike Prem who is a common man.
    1 introduction song each for Ratan n Prem.

    Ratan has a doting sister played by Swara Bhaskar. 1 song with the sister.

    Ratan is engaged to a girl, played by Sonam Kapoor.
    2 songs with Sonam Kapoor.

    Ratan also has evil brothers played by Neil Nitin Mukesh and Armaan Kohli.
    They envy Ratan’s popularity within his kingdom and also his power.

    Neil and Armaan come across Prem and they hatch a plan of abducting Ratan and replacing him with Prem so that they can grab all the property of their royal family.
    But Prem, being the hero of the film reunites Ratan with his family.
    Lots of talks about brotherly love and family values.
    Ratan saves Neil n Armaan from getting jailed.
    Happy Ending.
    Now Enjoy.

  • brothers can’t earn money as expected because the story was very poor so in 2nd day on the eve of independence day it could earn about 16 crore that means it can earn like holiday about 110 crore.

  • Akkians don’t go for brothers bcoz they are waiting for SIB trailer.
    At the time of SIB they will be waiting for Airlift.

  • Ago interval films is so boring….bt after interval very good movie…jabardast..jakas…awasome…
    Very nice real actors Akki & sid…

  • Just can’t believe it….
    Varun dhawan didn’t take a 14cr opening
    It was a sequel factor+Shradha.
    Akki is one of the finest actors all his performance have been praised this year.I still think brothers has taken a bigger opening.

  • Disappointing.. At least 17-18 crore should have been done if not 20..seems like Akshay Kumar has completely lost his pull at multiplexes..also,single screens were not bumper..if single screens would have been bumper then 17-18 crore might be a possibility..As far as lifetime business is concerned it will fail to beat the reasonable expectations..might finish around Houseful 2 and Holiday lifetime collections but these figures were expected to come in First week itself..May be time has come to admit it that Akshay Kumar has lost his superstardom. But he will be considered a star though because not every actor manages a 11-14 crore opening day consistently and that too a couple of times every year. .And i won’t be surprised if Singh is Bling opens below Gabbar is Back although having a much bigger holiday than the former on its first day..

  • if the fan of akki want that akki’s movie should also earn a huge amount of of money like salman sir and amir sir than he should have to make only 1 one movie in a year than only akshay sir movie can earn about 200 crore

    # he should sign a good story film
    # he should give time to promote the movie
    # he should go with good banner
    #and main thing he should only make one film in a year

  • all the actors in this movie act well specially akki sir bur story canbe more better so here problem was not with actors the main reason dueto which public not liked this movie was story but also this movie was average

  • @thullu… Hahahhahahahahaha…srk n salman ka comparison samaj aata h but akki n salman ka comparison hahahhahahah too much fun…..dekh bhai critics to bhai ki film ko bhi bhao nahi dete but all blockbuster….isliye u akki fans yaha comment karne ki jagah jaakar movie dekho…..akki ka bhai ka comparison akki se hahahahahahaha rofl….too much….

  • Not bad…considerin dat music was’nt good..opening is pretty decent..hoping for a good day today..fingers crossed

  • @Rew1 — Its an average Fhara Khan film which did 200 crs in india and 100 crs overseas. ..:-D…At least SRK has guts to do films with failed directors unlike Aamir…and first make up your mind about Dilwale…at first you are saying the entire responsibility lies on superstar Varun…it will be varuns film and big hit…and then saying it will underperform…lol…:-D

  • when i saw the trailer of bajrangi and brothers then i liked brothers trailer very much but…. when i watched bajrangi in hall then i feel very happy to see that movie and when i go to watch brothers in hall then i feel that trailer was only better than bajrangi but if we compare this movie with bajrangi bahijaan then salman was better than akkii this shows that akki will never be capable to make movies and earn like salman khan.Akki sir should have to work hard

  • “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

    this comment wins the internet

  • AKSHAY we r with u always and all the ways thru thick and thin….u r my favorite and u will b my favorite till my last breath….keep doing good work….give ur best as u r doing…one day all ur hard work will definitely b paid…

  • I am really disappointed with its collection. Somehow Akki is getting better as an actor but Akki the superstar loosing its sheen. One word for Akki fans no need to loose heart he just need one right movie with right promo and content just like Salman with Dabangg. For me Akki is still superstar alongwith KHANs and Hrithik.

  • @Anand_The Original…..u said it right that Akshay is not made for big movies..actually he makes every movie so big that everyone be it trade or public starts expecting huge opening/collection….

  • N idnicine I already sent u an email about this so u have ans. My question on this.. N published one article about the highest grossing movie bahubali, bajarangi bhaijaan, n pk…..

  • independence day means 30cr.but it will in the 25-27cr bcoz low promotion,buzz n awareness.but it will surely cross 60cr in weekend.and 110cr lyftime.

  • Some time back akshay was ahead of Salman but ab waqt badal gya hai he is no where near Salman.Us time Salman did bad movie for freindship but Akshay is doing it for money.he is after money.and his next bling singh also will not work.he shd do quality movies like holiday.

  • if the fan of akki want that akki’s movie should also earn a huge amount of of money like salman sir and amir sir than he should have to make only 1 one movie in a year than only akshay sir movie can earn about 200 crore# he should sign a good story film# he should give time to promote the movie# he should go with good banner#and main thing he should only make one film
