Gabbar Is Back vs Holiday: Box Office Collection Comparison

‘Gabbar Is Back’ and ‘Holiday: A Soldier Is Never Off Duty’, both Akshay Kumar films, were released about an year apart. While ‘Gabbar Is Back’ released on a holiday, ‘Holiday’ did not release on a holiday!

In 4 days, both films have collected about the same – ‘Gabbar Is Back’ has collected Rs 46.55 crore and ‘Holiday’ had collected Rs 48.44 crore. Not much to choose between the two films, but ‘Holiday’ managed to sustain much better on Monday and was outstanding on Tuesday too.

Released during the ‘Post-IPL’ period last year, the A.R. Murugadoss film went on to collect Rs 113 crore at the domestic box office. If ‘Gabbar Is Back’ has to match or beat the lifetime business of ‘Holiday’, it has to collect as much as the latter over the next few days.

A couple of other points:

  • Holiday was outstanding in Week 2, showing excellent growth in business on 2nd Saturday and Sunday. The reason was the multiplex business of the film at metros was excellent after a slow start. It will be tough for ‘Gabbar Is Back’ to match up, because Akshay’s latest film is more massy and should fare better at single-screens.
  • In Week 2, Holiday was competing against a small film like ‘Fugly’. ‘Piku’ takes on ‘Gabbar Is Back’ next week.

Will the collections of ‘Gabbar Is Back’ hold up? Will the film go on to cross the 100 crore mark, thereby becoming the biggest grosser of 2015.. bookmark this page for daily updates!

  • can anyone tell me when akki will stop the masala average movies plz try to make some differentiation in your movies and do only two movies in a year plz provide us quality of cinema like Aamir or go to jail like sanju. or plz quit the Bollywood and go to tollywood.

  • Holiday was a much better film minus the unecessary songs killing its pace!
    BO wise GIB will find it tough to even cross 100cr as it will not hold for the next days due to it lacking repeat value and also due to competition over next couple of weeks, Piku and Tanu Weds Manu Returns will easily dominate multiplexes wheras Kuch Kuch Locha Hai may affect single screens business a bit. Bombay Velvet despite not getting positive feeling and reactions, will take most screens from GIB just like OUATIMD, MADRAS CAFE and SATYAGRAHA did to CE in 2013!

  • still I think 100 crore is out of reach now,and if this movie can’t earn 100cr+ then akki should be blamed,bcuz he had lost his stardom.

  • easy 100 cr!!! PIKU is not a mass entertainer….fate will b similar to finding fanny. irffan khan has no mass appeal nor fans!!!

  • Saw some shitheads comparing akshay and hrithik…. u guys are really sick… both have nothing common despite the fact that
    both(and amir) are most versatile today..
    Now let us talk about BANG BANG….. the film had only one flaw that it had no story line….. it was wholesome entertainer…
    Can u mention the last film of salman khan which had good script….SRK last good film was chak de..8 yrs back..
    Amir’s last gr8 film was 3 idiots(pk only first half) 6 yrs back… remember ajay devgn’s last good film…?
    Only hithik is one in bollywood who did class fims in last 6 yrs … Guzarish , Zindagi…., agneepath , K3, and somewhat BANG BANG tooo..
    So please shut up…

  • @nipun, grow up dude, don’t act like you are some cinematic genius to trash some film. Give respect and take respect. You are becoming just like one of those critics who are too full of themselves and live in their own fantasy world thinking they are some superior beings.

    Also, what is the point in posting the same stuff in every article of Gabbar. Are you so hungry for recognition or are you just another attention seeking freak?

  • @sss

    Thanks Sherlock!

    BTW, Aamir Khan production has produced gems like Lagaan, TZP, and Peepli live which illiterate filthy cockroaches like you won’t ever understand in a lifetime! Go and learn basic English and don’t you dare to mess with me again!

  • 110 cr i feel it will reach. This is a good sum at the box office

    verdict: hit
