Kurbaan Box office updates

Thrillers haven’t really set the box office on fire in Bollywood and its no different with Kurbaan. The movie has opened to a lower than expected opening at the Indian box office on Friday. Much like Kaminey and Ghajini, Kurbaan released at most major cities on Thursday evening (7PM and 10PM shows IST). The occupancy for the paid previews was around 75% and collections exceeded 1 crore net, which is second only to Aamir Khan’s Ghajini last year which recorded close to 2 crores a day before its actual release.

Friday – But the real test for this Dharma Production film, starring Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor was Friday and Kurbaan despite huge pre-release hype and controversy, opened to average numbers. But with a wide release (more than 1000 screens), Friday should still be around 6 – 7 crores nett.

Audience response – Pretty positive from the youngsters, but mixed with the mid-aged older generation. The glaring flaws in the storyline has received severe criticism from both the public and the readers of our website.

**********************

Paid Previews – 1 crore
Friday – 4 crores
Saturday – 3.75 crores
Sunday (expected) – 5 crores

Weekend (including paid previews) – 13.75 crores.

**********************

Kurbaan has received, what could be termed as a ‘lukewarm’ response at the box office. There was a slight dip in collections on Saturday and business on Sunday, while higher than Satuday, fell way below expectations.

Future looks bleak for the film with terror as its backdrop. With enough star value and backing from a huge production house, Kurbaan has under-performed by a good 6 – 8 crore during its initial weekend.

Yet another potential blockbuster this year, goes down the drain. Very disappointing.

Box office verdict (most likely) – FLOP.

  • ^ oye wen i told paid preview was next to ghajini u told no.. nw u r tellin d same thing..;) movie may make 5cr on friday bcoz of its huge release.. shud settle for average to above average i guess…

  • Hit status is likely. I guess it should nt suffer due to ddd . I expect ddd to b another slapstick comedy like mere baap pehle aap. The promos were hilarious but the gross office crashed. Same is expected 4 ddd. Even critics including indicine team won’t recommend the movie

    So chances 4 kurbaan r bright

  • ^mere baap pehle aap??? oye.. compare karna hai to kisi ache movie se karo yaar…;)

    next week its eid n ppl `ll like to go for some funny movie rather than a serious ‘A’ rated movie rt…;) take any festive week, ppl lik to forget worries n laugh so comedy movies work… chal no arguements.. lets hope for d best..:)

  • Hey let me know in which world you live you idiots(indicine).first day 6 cr . go and check BOI first day collections are even lower than that of london dreams at each and every theatre

  • taran adarsh says first days business below average . this film gets mix response from audience . this films story is very predictable .

  • The movie is good. I think it’s a must watch movie. Very good performances, Good plot, good story line, good music. What else do we want in a movie to enjoy????? It’s surely going to beg some awards this year.

  • I did’nt found dis movie intresting except 4 d classroom debate scene of VO.Kirron kher was excellent throughout d movie.

  • salman fan good news Main aurr mrs khanna finally managed to rake moolh and emerge hit.it has mad 21cr on direct to home

  • This movie will tank like anything Monday onwards.. Friday is just abt 4 cr..I dont think it will gross more than 16 cr for the weekend & shud be arnd 22-24 cr for the first week.

    Note it guys. this will mark the first flop for KJo’s production house. There’s no escaping from DDD next week.

  • for all salman fans according to glamsham.com main aur mrs khanna has emerged as hit it has got a record viewership in DTH with 22 crs till now

  • Can anyone give me tickets of kurbaan for free. I don’t have money. I am below poverty line. It hurts. I am weeping while i am writing.

  • Kurbaan spells negativity from first day itself, refuse to pick up on Saturday and heading for 10-11 Crore NETT weekend. Business dips on Saturday, however Sunday is better occupied and should fare better. But weekdays steep fall is inevitable and first week should finish at 15 Crore range.

    2012 saw another spellbinding weekend(Approx. 5 Crore [ excluding sunday]) and no wonder if this movie find its place over biggest hits of 2009.

    Ajab prem Ki Gazab Kahani is rock steady with quite lesser screenings. Third weekend should be in 3-4 Crore range.

  • Bravo! You’re one of the few Indian producers trying to make movies with more content rather than overdose us with musical numbers that have little to do with the story. I love Hindi films but the dance numbers are waaaaay too much for today’s times. You know what you’re doing Karan, don’t get side lined by single minded critisisims.I hope this a blockbuster for you.Although I am an American still sensitive to terrorist films, I trust yours to be politically correct and I can’t wait for MNIK.

  • but amish indicine already pridect 23 cr for weekend . and i think it wont reach till 23 cr in its 1st week.
    so is it complete flop aur avg status ???
    i dont think so it will work. coz this movies life is only 4 more days cant pickup in 2nd week it is impossible ,
    akki uthne nahi de ga .

  • ^ han yaar… if 1st week s 15cr den 2nd wk surely 5-6cr. shud finish below 25cr., budget as stated is above 35cr for sure, so another flop.

  • Kurban is an epic disaster..2star.now no body on earth can stop ddd to become atbb,.50cr opening 90cr total..paa ll be crushed by ddd left right nd centre..

  • Kurbaan Makes No Impact At The Box Office

    Kurbaan has made no impact at the box office over its first weekend. The film opened to an average response and did not show a pick up on Saturday and Sunday.
    The collections on Saturday were similar to Friday and Sunday did not show a big jump as collections were just a bit higher than Saturday. Business is best in premium multiplexes in metroes with other multiplexes being well below the mark. Business in single screens is poor.
    Kurbaan grossed around 14 crore nett including 1 crore plus business from paid previews. The weekdays are likely to show a big drop going by Sunday figures and the week should close in the 18-19 crore nett region.
    look at my prediction above i said that if report good then wekeend 25 cr and if report not good then only 15 cr se movie got 14 cr . u guys can see my prediction is batter then indicine coz i was thinking as a nutral person and indicine were favouring saifi.
    i am 100 % sure about my prediction of DDD.
    lets see

  • Well done nauman..kurbaan ll wrap under 20cr total.,but i cant agree wid ur ddd prediction it ll cross 80 if it is gud.
