Hamari Adhuri Kahani Box Office Prediction

It would be an understatement to say Emraan Hashmi is going through the worst phase of his career. The actor’s last clean-hit was way back in 2012 when Raaz 3D released in theatres. Since then, films like Rush, Ek Thi Daayan, Ghanchakkar, Raja Natwarlal, Ungli and Mr X have tanked without a trace at the box office.

The big worry is that the opening day collections of his films is getting poorer with each new release. Will Hamari Adhuri Kahani turn things around for him? Unlikely, because the pre-release buzz is clearly missing. The trailer was received well and the first song had also gained popularity, but the way the film has been marketed by Fox Star Studios has left a lot to be desired. Also, there is hardly any interest amongst the audience, especially those in the cities. Compare this to Mohit Suri’s last film ‘Ek Villain’ and the difference is HUGE.

To add to the woes at multiplexes (where nearly 80-85% of the collections come from), films like ‘Dil Dhadakne Do’ and Tanu Weds Manu Returns’ are still going strong. Hollywood film ‘Jurassic World’, which released in theatres today, will also be competing. This leaves the fate of ‘Hamari Adhuri Kahani’ on the single-screen audience and eventually word-of-mouth, as single-screen business alone wouldn’t be good enough.

Hamari Adhuri Kahani Box Office Predictions

IF VERY GOOD (excellent word-of-mouth)

  • Day 1 – 6 cr
  • Day 2 - 7.5 cr
  • Day 3 - 9.5 cr
  • Weekend - 23 cr
  • Final - 65 crore +

IF AVERAGE (mixed response)

  • Day 1 - 5.75 cr
  • Day 2 - 6.5 cr
  • Day 3 - 7.25 cr
  • Weekend - 19.5 cr
  • Final - 45 crore

IF BAD (worst case scenario)

  • Day 1 – 5.5 cr
  • Day 2 - 5 cr
  • Day 3 - 6 cr
  • Weekend - 16.5 cr
  • Final - 30 crore


  • ABCD 2 will be the Biggest Grosser of the month and DDD will remain as the most critically acclaimed film of the year as both HAK and ABCD2 will get decent reviews like EV,AS2 and ABCD!

    HAK needs to do more than 60 crs to become a hit. I guess it will be an average grosser.

  • Most unlucky actor of all time i must say is emraan hashmi…

    There is nothing wrong in his films.
    His films Ek thi dayan,raja natwarla, ghanchakkar are still better than 90 percent of bad films we are subjected each year ..

    But the main setback of his films are Marketing and promotion quotient…

    Hak would have opened 13cr but Fox star hindi has been bankrupt due to bombay velvet and without clash…

    Young actors get good heroine in there films.. Like shraddha.,alia ..etc..

    Even of hak does not do well, he will have tigers which will do gud at multiplex which is around the corner..

    Also azhar buzz is great.. It will be universal appeal movie.. Hope balaji make it grand.. Emraan is better actor and good human being star than ranbir,ranveer,varun-sid, etc…

  • Poor actors like aditya roy kapoor getting katrina .
    Non-actors like arjun kapoor ranveer singh who are good for nothing jokers get anushka, priyanka etc…

    Also big banner yrf dharma movies.. They deliver bad films there also…

  • All the very best emran hashmi
    Have faith in mohit suri..will catch this one in theatre dis weekend irrespective of the response
    Hope critics recieve it well..

  • Budget of movie is very less.. So no problem of getting huge loss making film like bombay velvet..

    @indicine although ghanchakkar, etd , rn did not so well . His performance was not criticised. But the script, execution and direction was criticsed.. And u should not rush,ungli was delayed..

    Hak , i must be honest , is missing on a good heroine , and good picturisation of songs ..

    Although songs are good and Humnava etc r masterpieces..
    But u need good picturisation of songs promos ..

    I hope it turn classic..
    As 95 percent films are failing in bollywood and are losing big amount… There is no reason to worry..

    Not a joke to give hits with new heroines..

    See ranbir,ranveer also ging flops..

    Not ranbir will run behind deepika n become his servant to give hit..
    Deepika will have 2 servants now.

  • @nipun…

    Except rajeev masand (zoya Fanatic..)… All reviews have been average to mixed…..!!…

    Do u even know critically acclaimed movie of the year???…..

    Baby, piku r most critically acclaimed by critics…..!!…

  • I completely agree with Indicine that the 1st day collections of HAK would be low . 2 years back Aashiqui 2 also started with low opening but because of Fabulous music, Word of Mouth and Open weeks A2 became a Blockbuster . I am damn sure this movie will be better than A2 but whether it will get the same Box Office Response i doubt . I really want this movie to be successful because i like both Vidya and Emraan . Emraan has given 6 back to back flops so this movie is really important for him and Vidya has also given 3 back to back flops so it also important for her . Another problem is it will face tough competition from JW because Hollywood movies are doing great business this year in India . I really hope HAK turns out to be a brilliant romantic movie and audiences and critics appreciate the movie . I am not sure whether i will watch the movie or not but i will give support to Emraan, Vidya, Rajkumar and Emraan fans . Best of Luck to the entire team of HAK and i hope this movie deserves to be successful . All The Best from Saksham Duggal !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • DDD is not the most critically acclaimed film of the year. It got mixed reviews. TWMR and Piku got better reviews than it.

  • I will be watch hak to witness Brothers trailer at multiplex….!!…

    Single screen will already go mad after watching akshay in brothers trailer……!!…

    Just want to witness multiplex audience response of brothers trailer… So going for hak probably tomorrow…..!!….

  • why are emraan and akki films under marketed always I feel sorry for him and hope hak turns out to be hit.
    emraan is better actor than most young actors who are enjoying currently, at least akshay has strong fanbase which makes his films gain some profit. emraan, akki and ajay are the most undervalued actors in bollywood industry.

  • Goin to take a trip to the crazy world jurassic world no chance for hamari serial type kahani a glycerine fest

  • I hve said it before that HAK Cannot even cross half of MohIt suri’s lastEk Villain .
    Actually I was so disappointed With the starcast of this movie because I luved Mohit Suris A2 & Ek villain nd I was waiting for his nxt release nd hoping that he will come up With Another Good young starcast like aditya nd Siddharth sradha bt both emran & vidya r outdated actors nd have the same boring look in their all movieZ nd this will be the main reason of the failure of this movie ….!
    Flop/Average…Dats it….!

  • hak’s first day will be 7crore and lifetime will be 60 crore. it will be hit and emraan get releif from recent flops.

  • @Arjun Floppistan Fan
    read @indicine article carefully.. They have clearly mentioned Fox Star Hindi has not promoted..
    And the reason is ‘superstar’ Ranbir’s ‘all time disaster ‘ make them bankrupt…

    Akshays movies has nvr been undermarketed . his all movies carries brilliant buzz .
    Kaunsi duniya m h ?
    cc2c , blue , kmbhkt ishq , TMK , Housefull , h2 , rowdy , k786 , desi boyz , boss , ouatimd , Holiday etc etc….these r the some best marketed nd buzz making movies Of Akshay Kumar ….!
    don’t even try to compare emran with Akki ….! Akshay iz the most popular superstar of Bollywood which only can ne compared With khans . he is almost neck to neck with SRK & salman in every department ..only his movies r under performing at boxoffice….!

  • Though I loved the trailer but the film is not able to create excitement, loved the title track but its not become chartbuster. And as the trend continues no fresh film of Emraan can be a success if it had not 1 or 2 chartbuster songs.

  • HAK … is a sureshot hit .. arjun fatty is the worst actor of bollywood … most of the spoon fed star kids are talentless

  • Well expect d movie to collect 9+ crore on vert first date nd lifetime according to me looks around 75+ …….yeah agree on one thing that the marketing of HAK was not impressive but still it will be hit….and surprised to see some emraan fans here saying that they like emraan but not sure ki they will go to watch or not……well i like emraan and i m going to agra to watch dis movie which is 85 km away from my town as here thereis no good multiplexes nd as emrsan movie u need quality sound screen

  • i literally want dis to b hit.
    huge fan of emmi bhai n its not his fault in failures of his movie.
    marketing plays a key role in that which is really missing from this one too.
    as ol know his recent movies were really good as ungli, etd, ghanchakkar ol were really appriciable n far far better than craps sallu bhai use to do
    hope he will make a strong come back..
    gud luck emmi bhai..

    Well! I am not ignorant about critics reviews and ratings. That was a typo in my first comment. Even I had posted about my typo in that comment later. But @indicine didn’t post that.

    I was trying to say that DDD will remain as the most critically acclaimed film OF THE MONTH!

    And who said that Baby is the most critically acclaimed film of the year? ? The most acclaimed ones are TWMR and Piku and then, Badlapur and DLKH.

    Check indicine critics meter. DDD rating is 64 where as Baby rating is 66! But we all know that that meter contains biased ratings of indicine and Bollywood Hungama too.
    Here is the proof that shows DDD ratings are similar to /better than Baby’s ratings.

    Rajeev Masand:
    DDD: 3/5
    Baby: 3/5

    Anupama Chopra:
    DDD: 3.5/5
    Baby: 3.5/5

    Shubhra Gupta:
    DDD: 2.5/5
    Baby: 2/5

    Saibal Chatterjee:
    DDD: 2.5/5
    Baby: 2/5

    and, Ajinkya got his reply!

  • Reviews on Gulf sites are not good. It seems lot of Rona Dhona thing and Vidya has been completely wasted, Emraan is so-so and only bright spot in HAK is Rajkumar Yadav but he has his role only after interval. An average grosser to the max. Expected more from Mohit Suri after EK Villain and most importantly I want Emraan to get a hit which looks difficult !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Jurassic World will dominate this weekend followed by a strong TWMR then DDD… HAK looks like a tired dated film… Flop
