Happy New Year vs KICK: Box Office Comparison

We have received tons of requests for this very comparison, between two of the biggest releases of 2014 – Salman Khan’s Kick which was released during Eid and Shahrukh Khan’s Happy New Year released during Diwali.

Both films opened well at the box office. Kick released on a working day during the Ramadan period, while Happy New Year released on a holiday after Diwali. Kick had one additional national holiday for Eid-ul-fitr on its first Tuesday and the following day (Wednesday) was also a holiday in several parts of the country.

Kick collected Rs 164.21 crore in its first week, while Happy New Year was around 7 crore short of the highest opening week of 2014. However, the Salman Khan starrer showed tremendous growth in its second weekend, with net business of Rs 34.01 cr, Happy New Year fell well short with just Rs 22.24 cr.

Happy New Year is likely to finish with lifetime business of around 210 crore.

  • hmm talash/jai ho are much much better than a ra.one I guess.Moreover SRK simply doesn’t have the guts to release a movie with Aamir/Salman.He is well aware of the outcome(Each release will produce a ra.one).And as far as boxoffice collections are considered doing extensive promotions in KBC,comedy nites ,some show off dance shows etc there by creating superficial hype for utterly boring movies can only ride his movies.But as we all know the ultimate result will be a crawling HNY after strong start.For becoming the best one has to challenge the best(Salman/Aamir).Hmm he(SRK)not the best star but the best hypocrat for sure…..

  • Sallu the king of bollywood already u also know it ! Hny atter flop in 2nd week
    This shows salmans best
    Chul bul pandey
    Jai ho
    Sher khan
    Bad boy
    Is the best

  • HNY is a multicast movie it has v famouse other stars like, Deepika Padukone, Abhishek Bachchan, Sonu Sood, Boman Irani, Vivaan Shah and Jackie Shroff. and plus Farah Khan direction. so its unfair to give all credit to SRK . but KICK its only salman khan.

  • @hrithik,I know again you’re a playing because it’s your habit to hide THE TRUTH.very good,play in this way you’ll go very long in your life,I mean bahat lamba jayega,LOL.

  • @SSS: Entire Indicine n its visitors know what is you & whats me !!!!!! After all yoy are ‘king’ of most Deleted Comments !!!!!!! Lol

  • How many of these sallu fans can say they were true sallu fans for years. Many of them became fans since three or four years, when sallu came back with hits. And surely they will leave Salman after two or three years when Salman’s golden years will be over.

    Salman doing maximum movies, Inaugurations in these days as he know this is the best time to earn maximum money and this stardom is not permanent and this time will never come back..

    So lets see what will happen in the coming years….

  • U guys can say anything about srk but I don’t care wat u think of him . Srk is the best actor in Bollywood and Salman khan knows that he can never beat .

    Only one film Salman khan beat srk , but all the rest of srk film has beat Salman khan

    And Salman Khan film might have the money but people say happy new year story is better than kick .

    Srk the best x
