Holiday First Day Collections, comparison with other films

Akshay Kumar’s Holiday took a slow start at Cinepark Valsad (multiplex) on Friday, but managed to pick up towards the end of the day. The film has taken the 3rd highest opening for 2014, behind Jai Ho and Gunday.

Film exhibitor Prashant Solanki says “Holiday opened with average occupancy in the morning as compared to what is expected out of an Akshay Kumar film. But with positive word-of-mouth thefilm picked up forthe noon/evening shows and a huge jump in the night to end the day on a high”

“Holidaywill do wellover theweekend and will be steady on weekdays as well as IPL and vacations are over.Holiday could have taken a much better start if the first promo was cut better. It didn’t create any excitement, which meant that the film relied on word-of-mouth publicity. The audience is liking the film, so it still has a chance of crossing the 100 crore mark”

Note: The above collections are from a single multiplex where Holiday – A Soldier Is Never Off Duty released on 3 screens and 12 shows.

Update: With collections from other centres pouring in, Holiday looks set to post a total of around 10-11 crore on its opening day. Saturday will be crucial if the film has to recover its costs.



  • Weekend should be 35 to 40cr, weekdays are very crucial. Jai Ho weekend was 60cr but it couldnt sustain

  • 10-11 crores is just not good enough. will struggle to cross 100 crores. at max it will do a business of 90 crores. though i predict it to be around 80 crores. below average or flop.

  • top 3- JAI HO: 17.60
    GUNDAY: 15.86
    2 STATES: 12.28
    let’s see if HOLIDAY comes in the top 3 or on the 4th position!

  • Imraan khan & Akshay lost some audience due to OUATIMD. People started disliking them and now Imraan is lost. Only Ajay & Emraan can suit that kind of role. Biggest mistake by Akshay to do OUATIMD.

  • No Matter what I Guarantee you Holiday Will definitely collection more than JAI HO at the end of its Run

  • Gunday 15 crore !
    What the hell this worst film I have ever seen
    Jai ho 17 crore!
    For me
    Jai ho1/2 star
    Gunday 1/4 star
    And holiday 35 star

  • Indicine Tum pagal ho kya… Holiday Collected 22cr Worldwide on day 1 and excellent start in IND too.. Tum ye Report kahan se publish kr rhe ho…

  • Gunday has more footfalls than jai ho… Where is dinda25 who was talking about footfalls n stardom even ranveer Singh is a bigger star than salman

  • Lets see wot happens.. Fingers crossed.
    Hope it wil do 40 crores in the weekend.
    @indicine wats the budget of holiday.??

  • Holiday is currently rated 8.5 on IMDB,which means audience has liked it…

    Weekend:40crs above

  • After Raja Natwarlal, Ungli, MR X & Hamari Adhuri Kahani
    Emraan Hashmi will be sitting in the top league beating Ajay & Akshay

  • i think this movie cross 100 cr.
    because this movie story is different of this movie.
    everyone like to see akshay kumar but not see a sonakshi singha ………………………..
    HIT HAI BOSS…………………………………

  • Wow now it has a good chance to cross 70 cr that will be a great achievement for congress to all akki fans its celebration time for all of you…

  • It looks very tough for holiday to enter into 100 crores movie club….i think now i t would collect around 80 crores….so another just an average film collection wise from akki.

  • Now my pridiction for highest earning movies of 2014 are sequence wise.
    2.bang bang.
    3.kick (eid release factor).
    5.singham2/bombay velvet/phantom.(may be some other surprise movies).

  • I think it did extremely good for an Akshay Kumar film. It should easily cross the 60 crore barrier and may even go as high as 80 crores. Congrats King Kumar..

  • @ Indicine : Wheres the news about Kick trailer production team consist of 9 foreign technician working to give finishing touch with VFX effects ??? you post Srk news even when he leaves Mumbai & return but no news about Salman Kick !!!!!!!! It sounds biased !!!!!!!

  • Holiday First Day – 5th For Akshay Kumar – 4th In 2014

    Box Office India Trade Network

    Holiday – A Soldier Is Never Off Duty grossed 11.34 crore nett on day one as the evenings showed better collections but still the first day is not as high as it should be for its costs.

    The opening day is the fourth best of 2014 after Jai Ho, Gunday and 2 States and is fifth best for an Akshay Kumar starrer after Rowdy Rathore, Housefull 2, Tees Maar Khan and Boss though Boss was a holiday release so in actual terms its better than Boss.

    Holiday – A Soldier Is Never Off Duty will have to show good growth over the weekend to get to that 40 crore nett mark or above for the weekend which would be a good total. The film performed best in Rajasthan and also Gujarat which helped Mumbai circuit to a first day total around 4 crore nett.

    Below is the first day territorial breakdown of Holiday – A Soldier Is Never Off Duty.
