Last Friday, when Don 2 released worldwide in 41 countries – film critics thrashed the film, the trade pundits predicted doom after the euphoric initial weekend – but, it’s Shahrukh Khan and Farhan Akhtar who are laughing all the way to the bank.
Not only has Don 2 done fantastic business over it’s 3 day weekend, the film has continued it’s good run during the weekdays. On Monday, with a drop of less than 50% compared to Friday, the verdict is clear – Don 2 has received tremendous appreciation from the classes (multiplex audience) and is set for a long run at the box-office.
Unlike SRK’s last release Ra One, the strong word-of-mouth has resulted in good collections on Tuesday and Wednesday. The total so far is around 67 crores including revenue earned from dubbed regional versions. With one day remaining (Thursday), Don 2 is likely to end it’s first week with a 72 crore all India nett.
Like we have always been saying, we expect the trending to be similar to Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara. The drops are likely to be a little higher with Don 2, as both the release (print-count) and the number of people who watched it in the first weekend, were much higher than ZNMD.
Don 2 verdict – HIT. Should cross 100 crores in 12 days and end with lifetime collections of 115 crores. Could have been more without Players, which belongs to a similar genre.
I love this film and I can’t wait for Players to release!
Superhit hai …
superhit movie hai …achi movie hai
very Good amazing movie, first week 73 2nd week 30cr 3rd week 10cr lifetime: 116-125 verdict- SUPERHIT
It wil be a not a blockbuster 4 sure
I am big fan of sallu dabangg style and shahrukh d0n style b0th r bl0ckbuster waiting f0r d0n3&dabangg2.this is coming from amir fan :p
its an average……………….
BO said 115 crs looking impossibe for hindi version.
I think adding regionals it may touch 110 to 115 crs.
Indicine also saying 115 cr lifetime.
Means unable to reach Ready.
BG & Dabangg are far away.
Salman fans going to win the bate.
Srk rocks yaar, srk haters: SHUTTTTTTT UUUUUUUUPPPP!!!!
I Love it.
NO Romance Angle. NO item Numbers. NO cheap loud physical comedy. NO scene-2-scene remake of already Blockbuster. NO College campus light comic atmosphere to “help” movie get to 100+ crore mark.
DON-2 is pure thrill ride. Told with simplistic direction. Backed by SRK’s steller wicked, anti-hero performance.
DON-2 is a Blockbuster the day it crosses 100 crores.
The King is Back.
Your comments are supid.
Salman needs “item numbers” “item girls” “chartbuster music” & “scene -2-scene blockbuster remakes of South” to get to 100 crores.
He is the KING. Original Product making 100 crores with one-of-a-kind thriller is 1000x better than garbage like READY, BODYGUARD, WANTED.
Give credit where its due.
its a bakswas movie …. Salman is the star …..

Some 3rd grade critics are convert the word ‘critics’ in to ‘creatures’. We know some ‘critics(creatures)’ are working for ‘Aamir Khan’, b’coz they are biased over Aamir Khan, so they intentionally try to pull down SRK, by giving their negative review over this kind of ‘ever greatest indian action movie(Don 2)’. I am sure these creatures will give much and more ‘positive review’ over ‘Taalash’ and ‘Dhoom 3’ for Aamir Khan. Either this is the fact, or these ‘creatures’ know nothing about movies & acting. Why not these ‘creatures’ comes to make movie and to act? So don’t go with these creatures, otherwise you can miss something bigger. It’s a great Movie….super cool & compact, very fast pace, high octane & high tech, high voltage & hard core action thriller (never seen before on any Indian action movie)….ever greatest Indian action movie…..and SRK ? there is only answer that: Aamir & Salman both have to born more than fifty(50) times to act and achieve this kind of DON like super cool, dashing, smart action hero(also villain)role. SRK’s performance is so brilliant, so awesome, so cool, so smart, so stylish, so dashing & mind blowing and so memorable……The ‘King’ is really back…..
don 2 1st week collection all india 75c….and overseas 55-60c….if don 2 2nd week collection 35-40c then blockbluster in india…and overseas don 2 all time blockbluster…..
ok man i can understand you feelings.
Lekin kuch Srk fans ne kaha tha aur Salman fans se bate lagai thi ki ‘Don 2 will break BG & Dabangg’s record’.
Aur ab tum log kuch reasons lekar aaye ho.
Pahale hi keh dete ki there is no item song & don 2 is not a remake like don (don uhhh wo bhi kaha hit hui thi!) so it can cross 100 cr mark.
Itna ucha bolne kya jarurat thi?
heard salman was not happy with the way ek tha tiger turned out, so salman suggested aditya chopra to make a remake of a south movie but aditya didnt agreed, when angry salman tried to back out from the film katrina kai who is a heroine of the movie threteaned salman that she will disclose the secret about him
well said ……….. U and SRK are rockingggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggg
can any one guess what is the secret
salman act only masala movie and item song so single screen audience grow up as like as imran hasmi……srk act different style move not only masala…chack de india,mnik,don2,veer zara….next year srk act in masala movie and again single screen audience grow up….srk only comparible aamir not salman..cz aamir act different style movie….at now salman movie hit require remake+masala…..salman already a gross mistake ek tha tiger and sher khan and 2 movie must be flop as like as veer,yuvraj..cz flim is no remake…………..original script salman is finish 7 years ago….now remake khan…..srk,aamir is real actor….
Dont fi8 bro don2 vil be a superhit and in six days it cross 85 crore in india and there is friday sataday and sunday
rahan ja ke chor khan srk se puchle
good script hakla marke bhi das baar janam lega toh aamir jaisi act nahi ker payega
next movie mein aamir ki act copy karega tumhara hakla chor khan
salman nahi sallu are sorry sorry sallu nahi lallu kaho ha ab thik hai lallu khan
Don 2 is unreal in UK, even on weekdays evening shows are 70-80% full, very impressive
SRK is truly king in overseas
I think film got slightly more +ve reviews..it wasnt thrashed as such..
Btw how much Don2 needs to be super hit..and BB..??
I guess 115cr is good to term it as hit..though worldwide it is nothing less than super hit
yeh sab bewakoofi ki baat hai trade business analysis wagairah mujhe don2 bahut acchi lagi wakai mein king khan is back with a bang no matter don2 kitna bhi business kare srk best actor hai teeno khans mein aur usne yeh prove kar diya hai fir se .he is the king khan aur rahi baat business ki toh kabhi kabhi ashwin bhi 100 maar deta hai aur usi match mein sachin 94 par out ho jata hai toh iska matlab yeh nai hai ki ashwin tendulkar se bada batsman hai similarly agar bodyguard ya dabanng ke collectons agar don2 se zaada bhi hue toh koi fark nai padta king khan shahrukh khan hi hai
Aakihr haar manani padi.
WTH indicine….Cost of Ghajini was 57 Crores and cost of Don 2 is 62 crores.
Ghajini net collection:114 crores ( Blockbuster)
If Don 2 ner collection :115+ crores then super hit that is not fair u should answer this question..
I happy to see Don is back..I want Don 3 in 2013. Aamir and Shahrukh is much better than salman remake khan, his 3 films make him superstar now does not mean he is above of them.
Shahrukh ne acha hi ti kiya Me aur mrs khanna me role na kar k film kaise peet gaye box office per….Shahrukh is King and most Consistent Khan nd Aamir is genius and Ace Khan. Salman is only lallu and remake khan
@Don – It is not about the cost, but the price it was sold for! The distribution rights of Don 2 was sold for 110 crores.
What a movie What a Performance. THE KING IS BACK.
