Can PK break the opening records of Dhoom 3 and Happy New Year?

Question: Can Aamir Khan’s PK break the opening records of his own film Dhoom 3 and Shahrukh Khan’s Happy New Year? – Sohail (Kanpur)

Answer: Because PK releases on a working day, the opening day collections of Happy New Year is out of reach. Breaking the records of Dhoom 3, which released on a working day, would be tough too.

We spoke to a few exhibitors and distributors about the same. Most believe the collections will be somewhere between 25-28 crore on Day 1, which is excellent for a working day.†At best, the 30 crore mark would be surpassed, is what they say. The reason is, PK has limited appeal towards the masses and at smaller centres would rely on word-of-mouth.

At multiplexes the film will be huge, but release on a working day will mean that the chances of 35 cr+ is very less.

Question: Will the release of Rajnikanth’s Lingaa this week (12th December) affect the business of PK? – Gaurav

Answer: If Lingaa does affect PK, the impact would only be felt in South Indian states like Tamilnadu, Kerala, Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh. Even in these centres, PK has huge pre-release buzz. ‘Class movies’ like these tend to perform well in Tamilnadu and Mysore circuit, so unless PK disappoints, Lingaa won’t affect the Aamir Khan starrer.

    Congratulations @Team Indicine. More than 1 Lakh shares for Shenaz post. Incredible achievement!

    Since you have stopped the comment section on that post, I had to congratulate you on this page. Anyways, keep up the good work. The registration feature is also good. Hope the speed of uploading comments increases after this addition :)

    • @Gauravv, the Shenaz post went viral on the internet. More than 2 million views for the page, more than a lakh shares, it was covered on sites like BBC UK and other news websites around the world. Crazy. Our server crashed, we couldn’t post anything for 2 full days!

  • HNY has zero records except opening day and weekend. All other records belong to Dhoom 3. And biggest hit of the year so far is Kick not HNY.

  • PK is not here to break opening day/weekends records…but sure has fair chance to break lifetime record collections…or atmost highest grosser of year….

  • SRK ‘s record of highest first day collection and highest weekend collection will be out of reach for all other stars.

    IT CAN BE BROKEN ONLY BY ‘THE KING’ himself.

  • haha looks like even suchit agrees now that PK can’t get an opening weekend of 108cr. he was barking too much before. now he’ll chant about lifetime collections which depends on content and not stardom as he is very well aware of

  • Even though if it collects less than 50% of HNY on its opening day, I am pretty sure it will surpass HNY’s lifetime collections in India.

    Having said that, I think 30 crore opening is still on, 25+ crore looks certain. We can’t compare its buzz to Dhoom 3’s buzz despite of Raju – Aamir reunion, I had said it earlier this year in most awaited movies article that it won’t be able to beat Dhoom 3’s records in overseas, and I still stand behind it. But, it has very good chance to collect 300 crore in India should the content is as good as 3 Idiots.

  • pk is the movie to win heart and make us proud of bollywood.no one care about so called record breaking crape movies which does not remain in mind or heart after one week of release.

  • @Goutam

    Why RDB or TZP? Why not like Lage Raho Munna Bhai? It was blockbuster from day 1 but it also garnered great amount of acclaim. RDB and TZP were intense stories. Humor was very less in both these movies.

    While RH’s all 3 movies were comedies. Comedies are generally better received than intense movies. I think Pk will go more like Munna Bhai 2 than TZP.

  • WOW!

    Aamir Khan tweets,”My family says, PK is my best film till date!”

    This comes from a man who has Sarfarosh, Lagaan, DCH, RDB, TZP and 3 idiots to his name. Even if he is 1% true, we are gonna get the best commercial film of 2014.

  • Whatever the opening collection of PK doesn’t matter, the film will gradually grow money and end up beating Dhoom 3 record

  • @indicine h! yeah you are thinking the probablity ofPK breaking some records..but i eality its gonna be a disaster

  • PK’s first day collection will be 20-25 cr cos its releasing on a working day.
    @Indicine, Dolly Ki Doli trailer is out. please post it.
    thanks.

  • indicine please publish a article abour forbes india list where salman top the list with earning and fame amtiabh take the second postion anf srk on 3rd postion
    indicine please publish this article with full details

  • Yes opening day and opening weekend is tough..But it will get 2,3 holidays in its 2nd,3rd weeks so collection will be boasted …..For me Lingaa will definitely affect opening weekend of PK remaining depends on content

  • It’s a cup of tea for a megastar aamir to smash the records of a small Starcast multistarrer movie like crappy $hit year’s record. Lifetime of pk will surely be more than 350 crores. Saroooook will keep chasing it for next 7-8 years, and will probably break it when he will play a father’s role in some young superstar’s film in future. Lol.

  • it may break 300cr or loose 150 cr…..beware ti has religion….and whts hpnnig in india dharm yudh ….this film will make the matter worse …politics will b on this………………iit has seen where man dressed in shinva driving riksha and two muslim women sitting in riksha….
    ………if this releases pak is going to b disaster ……imyself is going to take arm and I say to all come out with arms …..its respect for shiva parmatma greatest of all…….my soul my body devoted to shiva…….I m not afraid of jailing aur itna bada danga hoga …..if situation cant handled..

    …….
    respect for hindism …….ah nai to kabi nai

  • look at the frustrated half actor’s fan @suchit.lol 9 hits in entire career couldn’t be called even super star leave megastar.while KING KHAN gave 11HITS in a row.now tame this and insert it in your shit mind you nut.

    half actor’s pk will do maximum of 15-18cr and lifetimr collection will little more or less than jai ho.but talash’s collection seems to be in danger,lol.

    @imthewasteuniverse,kick didn’t create even a single record whether in lifetime collection/opening day.however HNY smashed d3’s single day and opening day record.

    ONLY KING KHAN WILL break d3 that also with out a biggest brand dhoom,because this is not the job of any south remake artist/half actor,lol.

  • @trooper, oh poor cry baby u r still her? I am very much worried dear for paheli returns which will release sometimes next year and will fail to come anywhere close to the opening day record of PK. Keep crying poor baby, your Star is nothing in front of aamir and salman in stardom. PK will smash Crappy $hit year like a hell and rape it very badly and will leave it far behind. Bhool Gaya last year kaise dhoom 3 ne CE ko kutte ki mot Mara tha? Tera star ki to izzat fir se lut jayegi, pk ke baad.

  • @sss lol. Oh dear quarter actor fan, u r still crying. Looks like you will keep crying till entire life. Yr brain is so tiny to judge the stardom of megastar king aamir, that you can only see your quarter actor’s stardom. Aamir has done only 40 movies u jerk. And he has 16 clean hits you moron.

  • @Suchit srk- (2006-2014) >11 Hits @aamir_khan- (1984-2014) > only 8 hits(as per BOI). After Reading this Alientards decide to go back to the #Marsagain

  • @suchit,ha ha now you added not only averages even below average movies also added into amir’s hit,lol.

    dhkmn,ghulam-averages
    Dch-below average
    talash-semi hit
    tzp-special appearance

    So my mistake he has 11 or hardly have 12 hits in his entire career.so why you r lieng,everybody is seeing THE TRUTH.

    if you will consider your favourite boi,then amir has 8-9 hits in entire career.actually I can’t stop my laugh when I saw talash in that list,below hit movies are considering flop for SRKIANS.WE only believe in HITS or above that not flops you half actor’s fan.WE r not talking about 1/2 movie in which KING KHAN worked as multiactor but HIS BIGGEST HITS are of HIS alone with out any south copies/big brand multiactors,lol.put this into your ghajini mind,lol

  • @Romance expiry what a joke? If aamir has 8 hits since 1984, than SRK has only 6 hits since 1992. Don’t be so immature and childish. I already posted the list. Hope you get it. Aamir has done less movies as compared to flop king srk. So better get that.

  • @suchit,ha ha now you added not only averages even below average movies also added into amirís hit,lol.
