Gabbar Is Back Box Office Opening

Gabbar Is Back has opened well at the box office, even though the occupancy should have been higher since today is a holiday in most parts of the country. Single-screens have taken the best opening of 2015, but the occupancy at multiplexes was lower than Roy, Furious 7 and Avengers: Age of Ultron.

The Akshay Kumar starrer is competing with big regional releases today. Kamal Haasan’s ‘Uttama Villain’ has released in the South and Marathi film ‘Time Pass 2’ has taken a record breaking start in Maharastra – where the occupancy is significantly higher than ‘Gabbar Is Back’.

Compared to Akshay Kumar films, Gabbar Is Back is easily his best opening in a long time. The movie has taken a better start than Baby, Holiday, Entertainment and Boss — but that could also be because of the holiday factor.

Overall, the opening suggests that the film should collect around 12.5 – 13 crore on its opening day, but if the film picks up towards the end of the day, then it could get closer to the 14-15 crore mark.

  • 15 crore should be done..the film is picking up well in my area so I expect a good turnout in the evening and night shows as well.. Finally,good times of Bollywood is going to start from today

  • The Box Office Opening is good . Koimoi has given 3 Stars to GIB . Most of the critics have praised the performance of Akshay and many have said it is the Best thing about this movie . I will watch it today . Anything above 15 CR is a good sign . Expecting a good weekend ahead . Naam Se Villain Kaam Se Hero !!!!!

  • is too low numbers for mr.akki..
    Bang Bang-27.5 cr in 3300-3400 screens..
    GIB-13-14 cr in 3250 screens..Both released in partial holiday..
    A big slap to hr haters..who says akki is a superstar..haha..

  • I’m from Maharashtra so I know that timepass 2 taking record breaking opening..
    1st movie was highest grossing Marathi movie around 33 cr later that reitesh deshmukh debut film LaI bhaari broke record of timepass… LaI bhaari collected around 40 cr
    I’m 100% sure that timepass 2 Will definitely collect 35 cr lifetime…
    that’s why it affect gabbar collection too…

  • decent opening as i predicted 13 to 14cr opening is on the card holidays help the movie big time so expecting hit movie of bollywood.

  • Ohh atlast after years i am seeing akki film taking a good start..hope it does 15crs.

  • Akki fans 15 crore soch kar khush ho rhe h..?
    Where srk and salman fans are talking about 250 and 300 crores..akki fans are happy if it collects 135 crores..
    No taunts.. It’s reality..

  • The Box Office Opening is poor considering holiday and heavy price tag for distributors which required atleast 90 Crore life time to recover costs and become average . Opening day of only 13.5 CR (as expected from the opening) will at max result in life time business of 88 Crore even with a decent trend.So i see another average grosser like baby for akki at best…sad for akki fans

  • akki fans like me do not care about box office. We just want to see our superstar continuing to entertain us

  • @dilwala: tell ur srk to release his film without a festive date,normal ticket prices,3200 screens,without big actress and then talk!!!

  • @dilwala ya salman fans were expecting at least 200 cr from jai ho and what it did……fusssss………bcoz of non holiday period
    and 1st ask your bheegi billi oh sorry… bheegi bakri to release his films on non holiday then talk about 250 cr and 300 cr.

  • @dilwale,we see akshay on non holiday so we consider 135 crore is a great collection.rowdy rathore collection is higher than all 3 khans and hrithiks non holiday relises.

  • opening day should be 15 cr
    fingers crossed
    but the movie is outstanding
    akshay Kumar steals the show with thunderous performance

  • I am really happy film is getting good reviews . Akki sir really good performance in gabbar film .

  • @Babaji ka thullu, don’t compare the stardom of SRK with Akshay…it does not suit well. Days are fine when akshay feels he is a bigger super star during hey babby and singh is king movies….now her already accepted the defeat and doing 70_80 crore lifetime collection movies. The only actor who stood by time is only SRK!! He is a brand! BTW if big actresses wants to work with SRK and not with Akshay ..what’s hurting you???. You talk about asking srk to release his movie on a non holiday??? You fail to realize that the 3 khans are only pumping money to Indian film industry…entire Indians want to watch only these actors movies…..look what happens with tees maar khan when it got solo release during Christmas??.

    BTW gabbar is bank was released in 2003! In Tamil and Telugu….look how backward akshay Kumar is!!!And the ways he chose to get atleast a good hit!!! A TRUE Super star don’t think like that!!

  • C’mon indicine don’t call it holiday ! Delhi / U.p / Rajasthan / Gujarat / Punjab r biggest circuits nd there is no holiday there nd also in many cities !! Mumbai is the biggest circuit bt time pass 2 getting gud shøws nd screens there nd opened Housefull so holiday in Mumbai also goes in vain .

  • I m too unhappy with indicine by calling it even partial holiday !!

    B.t.w Dilwala
    Jitne log single screens m dekhne aaye h gabb ko aggr same log multiplex m jte toh collections 20 hote !! Nd Akki have 4 releases every year ! still ppl come to watch him in large numbers in many parts of India !! Akshay really Deserves the Word > megastar for this !!

  • @thullu
    Why don’t you tell your akki to release his movie on eid diwali or Christmas.. Can’t he have a big actress in his movie.. And talking about screens it is all because of srk’s star power that he gets more screens..
    You akki fans are talk so idiotic and give the worst reasons..
    If srk promotes his movies well and akki does not then it does not prove that akki is better.. It just proves that akki is lacking creativity..
