Can Holiday beat Jai Ho to be the highest grosser of 2014?

Q. Can Holiday beat the lifetime collections of Jai Ho (112 crore) and go on to be the highest grosser of 2014? – Suniel (New Jersey)

A. Certainly, it has more than a decent chance of going on to be the biggest grosser so far this year. The word-of-mouth that the film is carrying, growth over the weekend after a slow start on Friday and the way Holiday has sustained on Monday – all suggest that the Akshay Kumar – Sonakshi Sinha starrer could be set for a long run at the box office.

If the film can manage to collect 6.5 crore or more on Monday, it should collect 60-65 crore in its first weekend and then pick up once again this weekend (second weekend of the film) as there are no big releases – apart from Akshay Kumar’s home-production Fugly.

2 States, which took a similar opening to Holiday, collected 60 crore in its first week, 15.5 crore in its second weekend and 24 crore in its second week. Assuming Holiday collects about 20% more than 2 States, as it’s likely to retain more screens, it should amass around 27-29 crore in week 2 taking its total above the 90 crore mark in 2 weeks.

Again, these are assumptions based on how ‘good word-of-mouth’ films have fared this year. Holiday could fare better or worse depending on how well it manages to sustain in the next 3 days and the growth that it shows this weekend.

The next big release is Humshakals which is scheduled to release on June 20.

Opinions differ and looking at some of our Twitter mentions and the comments section here.. almost everyone is a trade analyst today. So go ahead and drop in your comments below. Tell us if Holiday can be the biggest grosser of 2014 – a record (if it does achieve) that it should hold for less than 2 months as films like Kick, Bang Bang, Happy New Year and P.K would be targeting 150 crore in Week 1!

  • Open challenge to salman. Cmon if you have guts clash with SRK when fan releases… N another challenge to salman fans give SRK 4 back to back eid like saullu… Then he’ll show what is mass superstar,class superstar(both which he already is) ,350 cr+ collection in india alone.800 cr worldwide… Then give aamir or salman biggest brand ever.. Super hiked ticket prices 2000 more screens even then they won’t be able to break SRK’s records… If he can give collection of 230 cr with just 6 days free run… Think what will happen if he is given two weeks solo run… U know the answer n that’s superstardom

  • A lot of people under estimate the potential of bang bang. Hritik will be back in his dhoom 2 avtar and katrina would be at her glamorous best. Dont be surprised if bang bang is amongst top 2-3 grosses of the year. as for competition, mary kom has already been preponed by a week and possibly haider will also move

  • I don’t think so, but if it can break the record, it will be good as the response of the movie is quite good, so at the end a good film should succeed. Though 100cr is on the cards as the trend suggest. @vikram why you behaving like a moron, we all have witness at the end of the year who has what capablities, i think you don’t know HNY will be srk 12th release on diwali. So he has used most of holiday period. Aamir has created cristmas as big period and except him none of the films which was capable enough but failed to do the needful, don2,tmk,dabangg2 etc. Salman has made EID a most profitable period that’s why you beloved king who used to release film on diwali went to jeetu sir to make him to release solo on eid, you said once your dog refuse to call himself aamir, he should be i suggest you to call him srk, he will surely think you Aamir and will show lungi dance. Pathetic loser, aaya h screen size,brand,holiday release ke excuse dene.

  • Someone called holiday better than k3! Well,now i would watch holiday. But in critics rating,holiday is way behind k3. .
    @romance crap:u are an example of blind hater.

  • @indicine, it is not trending that well.. Even jai ho trended better than holiday in its first weekend.. Jai ho had a huge growth on its sunday of more than 60% from saturday and collected a huge 26 crs on sunday as compared to 16 cr saturday. So relax wait for atleast couple of days to comment about the trending.. And for your info jai ho had done close to 10 crs on monday which i don’t see holiday can match or even get close to that.. So forget about jai ho, it cant even crs 100 crs.. My prediction is 95 crs with good trending..

  • may be or may not but very low chances… I dont think so its happen, i feel self salman beat his jai ho record of dis year

  • Jai ho doesn,t deserve to be on top 5.Holiday is better than jai ho.PK will break each & every record set by Dhoom3. Waiting for Raja Natwarlal & PK

  • Let’s see what happens! I will not be sad if Holiday crosses the lifetime business of Jai Ho. After all, Jai Ho was released in the beginning of this year. And its record is still unbroken. Very excited for KICK!

    Anand @ (June 9, 2014 at 9:35 pm) is not me. Someone else has used my ID to make Akki Fans and Salman fans fight. As Akki fans know, I am not against Akki.

  • Sky or ground- u idiot… We all know what is the capabilities of whom… I think you forgot talaash… Aamir needs 3 weeks solo run, biggest brand,hiked ticket price at almost every theatre,1000 more screens than Chennai Express just to collect 35 cr more than ce … So every properly working minded ppl know who ruled 2013 , the mental patients like their idol in dhoom 3 are the ones with the help of hr,salman,akki,ajay,ranbir break SRK’s record and become happy

  • @VIKRAM,although you said ETERNAL TRUTH,but our multiactor successful film’s hero’s fan complan boy couldn’t accept THAT TRUTH.after all I couldn’t underestimate power of Raju Hirani who sadly has a clash with anees bazmi,similarly I couldn’t underestimate THE SUPERSTARDOM OF KING OF BOLLWOOD who with lesser screen not only kicked 3didiots but also 3big superstar’s big release.now where could WE see such stardom again oh I forget NEXT YEARS’EID—– CLASH between BIGGEST MEGASTAR/KING OF BOLLYWOOD and biggest south remake artist of bollywood.now everybody knows what happened to many year’s before such release during DON vs jaaneman,when our biggest south remake artist and 2nd biggest remake artist/60cr club actor unitedly combo get kicked by KING KHAN. still I need to explain who’ll be the no.1 highest grosser even kid could say that 3WORD with out any doubt and It’s HNY.

  • the worst film of last year was chennai express. each and every review was bad. critics bashed the movie & very rightly so. it just got the benefit of so many holidays. if u take deepika out from the movie then it was zero.she infact saved the movie. srk was most irritating in the movie with so much of overacting. he has also started looking so old and haggard.thank god for deepika that she saved the movie. even srk knows this that is why he has again taken her in his next. i think the younger lot of actors have so much potential.AND HAVE A BRIGHT FUTURE AHEAD. Holiday will be down from next week. will not possibly touch the figure of 100. its first target is gunday, then 2 states and then Jai ho. even if it reaches 100 which looks difficult,it cannot beat jaiho as margin is quite a bit. it has 40 cr weekend & jai ho had 60 cr weekend.

  • @Vikram: Srk is the only superstar who has been releasing all his movies on holidays for more than half a decade now.
    Also your talk about Salman being scared to clash. Here is the truth… Srk announced that CE will release on Eid only after being 100% sure that no Salman movie was releasing that time. Also Srk has a good chance to clash with Salman in 2015 as Salman has 2 movies coming up. (Eid-Kabir Khan next, Diwali- Prem Ratan Dhan Payo). Lets see if Srk has guts to clash with PRDP as Srk likes to release his movies in Diwali. My guess is Srk will now release his movie in Christmas as there will be no Aamir khan movie 2015 Christmas. LMFAO.

  • @tina u are a high class psuedo intellectual idiot! CE was a full on family comedy and the entire movie hinged on SRK comic timing, if it was off the movie wud have tanked! His performance was just awesome as it had me and entire audience rolling with laughter, yes deepika was good but by no means did she saved the movie, SRK carried that entire movie and did relly good comedic performance, if CE was trash then how come in spite of only 6 open days with clashes with 3-4 movies every week like QUATIMD, John Nargis Movie, Big B Ajay Karenna Movie, it still was FIRST film to beat 3 idiots and gross 208 cr(where are all those holidays u speak off with so much clashes?), that is no joke for a non franchise, non brand name film, if it was crap, then audience wud have rejected and it wud have tanked like Ra One, come on admit critics hate masala films, good masala flims are CE, K3, D3, RR, Singham, Dabanng 1 and Wanted………………………doesnt matter what U or critics say, these movies were good masalas and audiences loved them and their box office results were gr8………………………………… U are relly a hater and moron, who will be burning when HNY releases to great box office results then……………I wait patiently to see what u will say then……………………and fyi the worst movie last yr was NOT CE, it was Himmatwala…………………….

  • @tina:worst film ce? ? Ce and jai ho are on par as far as quality is concerned. And coming to critics,they both got same kinda ratings.

  • @vikram don’t worry dude, we know what talaash did on non holiday time, yes it underperformed but eventually we know 3i,ghajini and d3, but i think you forget mnik,ra1,don2 and jthj, while later 3 are holiday releases. Don’t say worldwide gross as Talaash did 175cr overseas only on the name of Aamir-kareena. Non festive period and except MNIK even srk films not did the business which was expected from his in overseas till ce. @sss how can we see eternal,external,internal truth as our iq level is less compared to you, that’s why you hold the record of highest deleted comments, perhaps due to this in arguments you mention this line “please indicine post this comments as its urgent to show truth to someone”, i think you are advocate who used to show truth. Lol. First learn how to approve comment kiddo oh sorry complan boy. Stay blessed.

  • @tina,every puny SRK Haters says like that but the world around them couldn’t believe upon them because haters could only see CE/mm but couldn’t see CDI/MNIK and our younger generation didn’t have such potential even they didn’t have potential to act like KING SRK in the climax of CE and don’t forget CE is the most popular film of last year and one of among most searched movies in google,lol.

  • @sss : shut your bakwaas !!!!!! the so called stardom could not cross Ready with 3 holiday releases before Eid, Deepika & Rohit saved your fake king !!!!!!! Keep dreaming about Jaaneman vs Don (Thanks to Big B classic Don remake still it did only 50 cr & a Hit) !!!!!!!!!!!!

  • @bikram You buffoon- Don in 2011 in a similar scenario to Dhoom 3 withsimilar factors like brand, director, release etc etc could not even beat Ratoon Point One but when Dhoom 3 beat Lungi Express hands down you use those very same factors to bash Aamir…! Lungi King couldnt beat 3 idiots record during Christmas but he did with an Eid release (how I will never understand as it was a KRAPPY film) but Aamir beat that krappy record again with a Christmas release- to prove yet again that Christmas period is the baap of all holidays ONLY when Aamir is present bcoz for previous 3 yrs 3 superstars came n couldnt get past 150 cr…!

  • @sss khan Seems like the moderation team either felt bored reading your badeless n nonsense comment hence it got accidentally approved twice or they thought approving it TWICE may help the readership make sense out of it by subjecting ourselves to that torturous dribble- eitherway Indicine Im saying in future delete 90% of the words ‘sss khan’ jots down n maybe just maybe then it may make some sense… !

  • its gonna be like this////
    first week 63 cr
    second week 22 cr
    other week 15 cr

    100 cr not more then it

  • its already 62 crores guyss..2 open weeks. question: will it touch 200 crores??? dont want to debate anything else…200 crores or not??/ as audience increasing..word of mouth spreads like forest fire. i want to see the face of floppy now!!!haaaahaaaaa

  • I don’t think so.Even if holiday earn 100 cr it will be more than enough.if it earn 95 cr then it will be tagged as hit.
