Jab Tak Hai Jaan vs Son Of Sardar: Detailed Final Comparison

Okay, the final box office comparison between the two Diwali releases Jab Tak Hai Jaan and Son Of Sardar, before we begin our extensive coverage of Aamir Khan’s Talaash.

The topic of debate over the last week on social networking websites and in the comments section here  – Which film won the Diwali battle? Well, there is no clear winner. Here’s why.

Jab Tak Hai Jaan was expected to beat 3 Idiots. But let’s be realistic, the film would never have crossed 200 crores, even if the word-of-mouth was as strong as Chopra’s last film Veer Zaara. But despite the clash, not-so-popular music and 3 hour runtime – JTHJ has done reasonably well at the box office. Yes, business in India hasn’t been record-breaking, but how many romantic films in recent times have managed to collect half as much as JTHJ has?

The trade was confident Son Of Sardar would do well, and it has. On paper, JTHJ had almost everything in it’s favour – massive star cast, legendary director, oscar-winning music composer and a much wider release. Yet, SOS is likely to end it’s run just 10-15% short of JTHJ’s total.

As expected, the SRK – Katrina Kaif starrer quite easily won the first extended weekend with a lead of Rs 15 crores. Since then, both films have done similar business with SOS putting up better numbers in the second weekend.

  • TRUTH OF THE MILLENNIUM AND CENTURY AND EVERY YEAR

    IN HIS SO CALLED BAD PHASE KING SRK S GIVES 100 CRORES plus MOVIES.

    WHERE AS OTHER BOLLYWOOD STARS IN THEIR BAD PHASE GIVE

    BOLLYWOOD DUDS

    KING SRK RULES.

  • @sahir FYI… Aamir also done QSQT, DIL, Dil Hai Ki Manta Nahin which were wonderful. Dhobi Ghat was never promoted and everybody knew it will not collect much but was appreciated in film festivals.

  • @Late yash chopra….first i am feeling sorry for yash ji…as a cheap like u has spoiled his name….
    anyway…u salaman fans always show ur class to which u guys belong…
    i mean when u feel that u r not capable for a fresh debate…then u start barking….
    grow up man…..
    i am here for a fresh conversation and so i am expecting from u…
    god bless u…!!!!!!!!

  • SRK has lost very badly…JTHJ has struggled to collect 100 crores and despite carrying the SRK – yash chopra combo brand, the movie was an average fare…It talks about the fading popularity of SRK…He is no longer among the top 5 actors in the country…Salman, Aamir, Hrithik, Akshay and Ranbir are far ahead of him….Both in terms of acting as well as popularity…..SRK’s carrer will be over in next 2-3 years

  • @zahid.

  • The biigest hit of Yash Raj Film is ETT. First 100 crores film of Yash Raj Production ETT. Salman gave YRF its long deserving due in 2012.

  • jab tak hain jaan, picture mein jaan hi nahi hai toh kaun ja ke dekhe ga jab tak hain jan………………………………………………..

  • @late yash chopra…ok man…u r using the name of this legend for such a great cause….
    fine…but kindly will u tell me…..??? …that what kind of non-sense comments i made…
    .
    .
    but i don’t think that ur reaction is due to my non-sense comments….
    it’s very tough for u guys to engulf the truth….

  • @naom haan mein bhi dekh raha hu kaise yr’f ne tere king ki film bechi hai ek tha tiger ke naam pe

    moral of the story is – yr’f sold out jthj by using ett.

  • @ King : bro they will net…. eg morning there was article on Indicene about Chennai Express, If u open it there will b more of Sallu fans commenting on it (mind u all negativity) with just one pic of SRK they will tell u the whole story what the movie is all about…
    We know the fact that Salman is ruling at the Box office (india) but still all of them are jealous of SRK dont understand why? may be fear?? what say … now in coming two days they will say Talaash is great movie…and if by any chance it comes close to ETT… they will start spreading negativity…

  • @noam and other SRK Fans my Humble request Please when u feel childish and when ur inner child tease u to watch some crap n imagenary things. Please please please dont waste money just stay at home switch on ur TV and watch Cartoon Network or Pogoo. In that kind of stuff u can watch better imagenary Action n Fights.

    Whenever u want to watch Logical Epic classics go to the theater and watch the Movies of The Great KING of All Time The One & The Only SRK.

  • @ Sopy, SRK is jealous of Aamir, Akshay, Ajay and Salman. What you give you get back, we are giving back what you preached – masal fare is poor.

  • hate rs r more interested in commenting on this page rather on their so called remake star s page and

    ha ha ha ha

    MORAL. THAT SHOWS OUR KING KHAN S SRK S POPULARITY AND CLASS
    THEY R FED UP OF THEIR COPY STAR
    HA HA. KEEP COMMENTING FOLKS. HA HA HA

    SRKIAN S LOOK AT THE STATISTICS

    SALMAN S PAGE 8 COMMENTS ON 3 DAYS

    WHERE AS OUR KING HAS GOT MORE THAN 70 COMMENTS IN HALF A DAY. THAT’S THE POPULARITY. HA HA HE HA

  • @naom
    its not a popularity..:D :D

    please check your comments on 1st page.and tell me how many likes you have got? forget about dislikes .they are plenty :D

  • JTJH could have been better if some other actor had played the younger SRK. The storyline was rather simplistic and juvenile for such a “classic” YRF? SOS on the other hand was a remake of a Hollywood silent movie “Our Hospitality” It had a more realistic storyline

  • @noam Well Said. Our King is after all Real King

    Haters r interested in SRK pages more then their own so called Superstars.

    Also see their So called Superstar has not got their own name and tags and honours. They always use and feel proud to use the Tag of KING with their Stupid stars.

    Hahahahahahahaha

    Thats what the Crisma of The Real KING – SRK u Rocksssssssssssssssssssss

  • @sahir according to you sharuk is the king. Then why did yrf distributed jthj prints by using ett’s name?????

  • @late yash chopra…i am still waiting for ur reply…ans me or admit ..that u salman fans are feeling insecure just after only listening the name of SRK…
    learn to accept the truth bro…
