  • Coool….
    Though it will fall..by 10-15crore..of 3Idiots nett collection in India..
    I just dont want to see 3Idiots standing at top..I mean..it released on 1750 screens..half of ETT approx..still..202cr..
    I think following will happen..
    Dabangg2 may break..record..of ETT
    then..Chennai Express (Not YRF next..) will break the record..
    then krissh 3
    then Dhoom 3..[thanks to franchise name]
    then SRK or Salman film again..

    and..within 3 years..I see a 60-80cr Day1 at BoxOffice..or may be more..seeing the growth..

  • if released in pakistan 10 crore more wil be added….hatsoff salman even after much negativity film grossed this much amount…….hope dabangg 2 better thn previous….

  • wow massive achievemnt as compared to don 2 movie because it ranks in action thriller movie.. and not like other salman masala or akshay type movie but still it will became 2nd may be 1st lifetime grosser..

  • @ayan ahmad its his 5th all time blockbuster 1. maine pyar kia, 2 HAHK, 3 dabangg, 4 bodyguard, 5 ek tha tiger.
    @indicine thanks for the news but wanted to ask you couple of questions is that i saw your review on ek tha tiger which is 2.5 and then I saw you review on kites you gave 3 or 3.5 which is very surprising and now you are going to say they lot of effort was put in kites. so did salman in ek tha tiger. please be biased. even you gave don 2 four stars and masterpiece 3idiots you gave only 3 stars. now you tell me which movie is better don 2 or 3 idiots. comparing farhan with raju is like compiring one story house with world trade center

  • 1.Maine Pyaar Kiya.
    2.Hum Aapke Hai Kaun!
    5.Ek Tha Tiger.

    These are 5 All Time Blockbusters of Salman Khan(Solo).

    And if you count adjusted figures then HAHK is the highest grosser of all times.

  • Hahaha guys.. Thatz Salman khan !! Who dont need a good script or story to make a film Blockbuster !!
    Salute to the biggest superstar of da planet..

  • @ahmed, don2 and 3idiots are both different genres.
    3idiots, about finding rancho and then they start showing thier past how they spend time with rancho and blah blah.
    Both are totally different in their own ways, u can’t compare both of them.

  • @Indicine Team

    You can check it on BOI or just check Taran Adarsh latest tweet its Salman’s 5th ATBB(solo) & if you take KHH then its 6th.

  • Accrding to BOI, Boxofficeday.com and other box office sites. ETT’s has collected 163.22 crores in nett 12 days (India)
    First Week(9 days)-143.22 crores.
    2nd weekend(Fri-Sun)- 20 crores.
    Monday- 3 crore approx.

  • @marz I am not taking anything away from don 2 it was a preatty good movie and i liked it but movies like 3 idoits are made once inlife time. my only problem is with indicine reviews not don 2 and you tell me honestly despite of not a strong content but which movies is better kites or ek tha tiger give me honest answer

    • @Ahmed, every individual is different and opinions differ. Even the best of films are not liked by all. As for 3 Idiots, I had immense expectations from the film and immediately after watching it, I thought it wasn’t as good as Munnabhai MBBS or Lage Raho Munnabhai. I didn’t like a couple of scenes, as mentioned in the review. BUT, on repeat watch I really liked it a lot and have now watched it several times on TV and DVD. Today I would rate it 4. :)

  • @indicine Srk’s movies release in other languages in different contries why others actors don’t release bcoz they r not capable and srk can do it so why u r not including this is not fair

  • @Nishad,we have seen the real power of Salman with Yuvraaj in 2009,even A.R Rahman music,well acclaimed director Subhash Ghai & good form of Katrina who was coming from hits like Singh is Kinng, Newyork & Ajab Prem Ghazab Kahaani could not stop the film from becoming disaster.

  • Every big website and big trade analyst of film is saying that Ek Tha Tiger has collected around 178 crores nett in India in 13 days except Box office india which shows 166 cr nett. What is happenning with BOI.

  • @tdpunks boi is biased it is tryin bring down ett…so far boi not evn givin teritorial breakdown of each day lik for othr films….producer claim official becoz thy r goin to pay tax for tht…

  • @Emperor bhai boi is tryin brin down ett if taran,komal says ett gon past 3 idiots boi wil lif tim is only 190 crore

  • #Chota don dear I total agreed with you and in coming days Tiger will mark 200 crores. Just 22 crores is left for this club.

  • @chota don

    Yes you are right mate.t
    Figures shown by Indicine,Taran & Komal are official figures from Yashraj’s distributors.
    Even the news channels also showing the news of 175crs in India in 12 days.
    Who cares poor BOI.
