‘A Gentleman’ fails to make it to Top 20 opening day in 2017

‘A Gentleman’ did the unthinkable at the box office on Friday. The film collected just 4 crore, which falls at the level of much smaller films like ‘Phillauri’ and ‘Begum Jaan’. Even disasters like ‘Rangoon’ and ‘Raabta’ opened better.

The collections are in the same range as ‘Ok Jaanu’ which finished with lifetime business of 23 crore. The reports of ‘A Gentleman’ is better, so the film should show decent growth over the weekend. But when the start is so low, even getting to a 20-crore weekend looks extremely difficult, unless the movie nearly doubles its business today and rises further on Sunday.

  • If the same numbers would be given by an Arjun Kapoor film – you wouldn’t be making multiple articles to show how badly it performed – rather would be justifying it since it clashed with 2 smaller bollywood releases and a big Tamil movie along with the issues in the North Indian circuit.

    I understand that the movie hasn’t done well nor are the reviews and WOM highly promising but its quite annoying when you declare a film a flop in a day itself – yes you know the maths – but you don’t realize that by spreading such negativity after Day 1ns collections – you are further dampening chances of the movie’s future – coz a lot of readers following your website may cancel their plans foe Saturday and Sunday after reading such depressing articles of yours.

    Hence, I kindly request you to not to declare a movie a flop on Day 1 itself.

    • u idiot first let arjun give such nos.. his last 2 films did 55cr at d bo & none of them were flops. they were avg grossers & way better than flying jatt munna bbd gentleman raabta.. arjun will definitely make a comeback. he is the 4th biggest youth star after ranbir ranveer varun

      • @arjun youngistaan fan..
        U idiot mubarakan did almost this same number on its first day.. it literally collected 5 crore on first day..

    • i don’t think an article can stop people going to theatres . They gv 4 stars to fan and so mny other critics still it dipped from 2nd day onwards! This iz nt even review..grow up

  • Saturday is also flat ,WOM is Mixed as expected. Young actors should not do big budget movie ,bcoz if the reports r bad movie become disaster on 1st Day itself. Stars like Salman ,Aamir ,SRK or Hrithik can carry even bad movie if they r action or masala movie
    For eg – PRPD (Crap movie ,still Hit) ,Dilwale (Crap movie clash with great movie ,still did 135 cr+ and ATBB in OS) , D3 ( Crap movie but still ATG due to Brand Dhoom and brand Aamir) ,Bang Bang (Crap movie ,clash with great movie but did 145 cr and BB in OS)
    That’s why they r superstars and some people compare them in bad phase with Young stars, even in last decade Salman fan following was more than double of these young stars ,he did not make millions of fans by only one Dabbang.

    • Dumbass!!
      how bang bang ws crap??? Jst bcoz it will nt be remembered doesn’t mean it ws crap. It was worth the money! From where u ppl get ur mind??

    • You are calling these movies crap acc to ur own choice but the truth is a lot of people liked these movies!!!

  • indicine buzz of gentleman was 3 and it did 4 cr. indicine buzz of baadshaho is 4 now. any oneunderstand how indicine is calling baadshaho buzz is 4

  • You have Fast and Furious and Baahubali 2 on the list, but not xXx 3 and Annabelle: Creation? They opened at 7 and 4.50 crores respectively.

  • You will be shocked for Judwaa2 talking about your earliet prediction. Brsides A gentlaman collection is 3.5-3.75 not 4.

  • Till now there is only 1 excellent opening that is Raees (from Bollywood ). SRK’s worst is better than many actor’s best.

  • Where is ur Top 15 list of Actors…As soon as Akshay enters top 3 u loose interest in the article shows u r a biased site and will never be credible…

  • Arjun Kapoor + badly received trailer of Mubarakan = 5 cr +
    Sushant + negative response to trailer of Raabta = 5 cr +
    Sid + trailer with positive report = Barely 4 cr
    And still according to TEAM Indicine Sid is more popular than Sushant and Arjun ?

  • Relied on looks and casting couch to get roles (both of them), no wonder the film flops. Time to let real actors shine instead of these non-actors from the modelling world.
