A Gentleman Day 1 Box Office Collections

Sidharth Malhotra’s ‘A Gentleman’ has flopped at the domestic box office, as the dismal opening of Rs 4.04 crore has sealed its fate on the first day itself. It would require a miraculous turnaround from here for the film to have any chance, but even that may not be good enough because the starting point is too low.

Business was affected by Ganesha Chaturthi celebrations and violence at places in North India.  South was affected by the release of Ajith’s Vivegam. But the collections even at places where it was a holiday was dismal. Night shows were running to less than 25% occupancy in major cities and even the one-week-old ‘Bareilly Ki Barfi’ was running at higher occupancy on fewer shows.

The opening day is the lowest ever for a Sidharth Malhotra film, lower than even a small film like ‘Hasee Toh Phasee’ which collected Rs 4.3 crore on Day 1.

Growth for the morning shows on Saturday would’ve been a positive sign for the film, but occupancy is about the same as Friday, at places it’s lower. The film should grow evening onwards, but given the costs and the disastrous opening, it needs to double its Friday business.

IndicineLBO‘ (lifetime prediction) was down to Rs 25 crore yesterday. When the final prediction is published tomorrow, it could go down even further.



    • Movie is good man. Once people use to call akshay as expression less and bad voice. So don’t become Judgmental. Watch the movie with your friends sure U gonna enjoy Thanks

  • Saw BareillyKiBarfi with family. It’s a very good entertaining film. Few scenes are hilarious. Every actor is awesome. I loved Kriti Sanon & Rajkumar Rao in particular. Amazing father daughter relationship is shown. Everyone should watch BareillyKiBarfi with family. It’s really a mazedar film.

  • The word of mouth is extremely mixed With Most taking negative About the Film Sadly it will flop The Word of mouth is not like Mubarakan Which started around same point 5.25cr But showed Extremely good growth in it’s weekend But the situation is not looking good for A gentelman

  • Sid malhotra is not even a star ,it was an Action Movie and trailer was excellent. Songs were also good still such a low opening and people compare him with Varun. Are you Serious ?? Varun in the same genre in dishoom with average trailer opened with 11Cr and Judwaa2 will open 15cr + Even dark film Badlapur opened better than Gentleman I think.
    No Comparison at all. Even Arjun kapoor acts better than him and take better initial. Young Actors according to me :
    And for god sake don’t call them superstars ,they r not even close. Only 6 superstars r there acc to me:

  • Sid is go John way…Looks good but has zero acting ability…expressionless ! Hence he might get few endorsement deals like John but difficult for him to make movies run as main lead…In long run, acting is must to survive in Bollywood…All the major stars Akki, Ajay, Hrithik, Aamir, Srk are great actors…Salman is phenomenon so he is the only one who does not need those acting chops (though he can act as well but people prefer him playing Salman rather)…Even Amitji was a great actor…The problem with likes of Sid will be they can’t pull different kind of roles

  • Even some were comparing the film with hrithik bang bang…..
    Bang bang earned mammoth in box office even with clash and after critics bashing the film…
    Thats d power of Hrithik….
    Just wait d storm is coming….

  • @indicine
    Has aashiqui 3 been confirmed starring sid & alia ??.
    If not then whats the status of that film ?.
    what are your expectations from Aiyaari & when is it releasing ?

  • BC every tom dick n Harry are actors in Bollywood. Sid doesn’t even luk lyk hero..who are these morons who sign him as actor..Sid is fit for TV serial only. Jacqueline is good for expressionless acting where scope of exposure is good..I don’t have more hope than this from duo.
