Mubarakan Day 1 Box Office Collections

Arjun Kapoor’s Mubarakan has taken a shockingly low opening on Friday, with the film collecting around 5.25 crore on its opening day at the box office. The Anees Bazmee comedy now needs nothing less than a miraculous jump in business over the weekend and then a strong ‘Friday-level’ Monday – to have absolutely any chance of doing well.

‘Mubarakan’ joins the growing list of films that have opened well below expectations on the opening day. ‘Raabta’, ‘Tubelight’, ‘Jagga Jasoos’, ‘Munna Michael’ – just to name a few – have all failed to take starts.

The opening day business of ‘Mubarakan’ is the lowest for an Arjun Kapoor starrer since ‘Aurangzeb’ in 2013. But even that film, with less than half the costs, opened at 4 crore. His last two films like ‘Ki & Ka’ (7.4 crore) and Half Girlfriend (10 crore) opened very well, but ‘Mubarakan’ has shockingly fallen about 30% short of a niche film like ‘Ki & Ka’.

Compared to other films in 2017, the opening of ‘Mubarakan’ is only a few lakhs higher than films like ‘Naam Shabana’, ‘Commando 2’ and ‘Rangoon’. Two of those films were cheaper and didn’t have a star, while ‘Rangoon’ was dark and unexciting.

The film itself is better than the collections, but multiplex business didn’t show a major upward trend Friday evening onwards. With ‘Jab Harry Met Sejal’ scheduled to release next weekend, ‘Mubarakan’ needs 50-60% growth on Saturday and double digit collections on Sunday.

  • Overall feeeback regarding the movie is positive. So it should have good growth over the weekend.

    Wishing it to be a hit as that is something the industry badly needs now.

  • Lolz….wat were u xpctng fr a arjun kapoor movie to open at 10 cr…
    Hez nt a star nd cnt wrk in big budget films..nepotism doesnt help in big opening.
    Wake up bollywood

  • The only one to save Arjun Kapoor is Chetan Bhagat. Blockbuster Film like Half Friend can bring Arjun back. Half Girlfriend defeated Bahubali in week 3.

  • Word of Mouth is on positive side Will show growth today and tomorrow Anyways going for it with family today

  • Not very good times for the industry. JHMS and TEPK will eat into each other’s collections stopping either to be a huge hit. Exactly what Kaabil and Raees did to each other.

    What biggies are we then left? TZH, having a solo release, should be a blockbuster. Then we have Golmaal Again. That should bring joy for the industry too. Should be a huge hit. Baadshaho and Judwaa 2 should do well also.

    So overall this year have been a dis-appointment. Next year should be better with Aamir taking Diwali, Salman on Eid and SRK on Christmas. Hrithik, Ajay and Akshay will have big releases too.

  • Audience is hungry for good movies.
    But looks like filmmakers are making films just to prove a point, they are making for themselves. They are not obliging to the demand of audience.
    I remember enjoying HNY , KICk, CE , sultan in full PACKED theatre but when I see social media, these films are labeled as Craps sadly some actors also believe this perception made by small social media folks.
    I am not saying these movies were brilliant. No they weren’t.
    Mai 50rs de k jhula jhulne jata hu, sirf isliye ki Maza aa jaye, bas waise hi h, COMMERCIAL PAISA VASOOL film.
    Sadly TEPK also looks very simple, and JHMS also not looking very good, commercially.

    • Could not agree more,big star should make movie for audience not critics.the main theatre going audience is out side the social media.

  • Boss ..don’t be shocked with the lower collection audience has saved their money for JHMS releasing next weekend …simple analysis

  • the trailer was disastrous and music was also ordinary. . it’s easy to get youtube views and likes using IT solutions bt real buzz is some else. ..meanwhile lipstick 2nd Friday – 90 lacs & massy munna 30lacs😂😂😂
    audience clearly prefering content over stars & genre. .only thing common btwn all d successful films of this year is wom.. only raees did well bcz of big opening bt that had fab promos. . so basically if u need good opening trailer MUST BE solid. . & if u need ‘hit’ bo more than trailer, star, eid diwali wom has to be solid.


  • No alia..
    No shraddha.
    No kareena..
    No yrf.
    No dharma…

    No rom com…

    And this is what happens to so called a star who is highly rated by @indicine..

    And this @indicine hasnt shared BAADSHAHO song .. piya more.. becoz it has emraan whose films atleast open better than Mubarakan without Alia, shradha, DP, kjo, yrf , rom com, dharma , etc… !!!!!!

    Shame on @indicine and @arjunkapoor

  • Ki & Ka was hit due to kareen kapoor Presence and unique content
    Half Girlfriend is average
    Seriously This is the worst year for Bollywood
    Bahuballi 2 is not bollywood film

  • Its not shocking, audience were uninterested. Though I support the film for being family oriented, it has to have a big star too..
    The problem is bollywood industry is stupid and confused, they are experimenting with marketing with mini trailers and with poor editing.
    I don’t understand where the economics come from.
    If you take 7 years old Dabang,
    Each and every piece of that movie worked and how?
    From Salman Khan
    To Kickass trailer
    A song like “Tere Mast Mast do Nain” was written chartbuster
    Each and every marketing clicked masses and classes like I have never seen in any Salman Khan movie too forget others
    The Dabang craze and era is underrated now and though the film was not great but the film was blockbuster before it released.
    Bollywood lost marketing sense and then a rare case like well Executed Mubarakan Also likely to failed.
    Also the commercial film from big stars like Salman, Srk, Hrithik, Akshay also missing in big commercial movies , the top 4 stars didn’t bring movies for all audience, Salman only in this year, Aamir is eid ka chand.

  • Not xpected this from a 70cr budget movie with good reviews.
    I think people have lost faith in normal masala films, they wait for something worth their ticket price.

    • 70 crore budget! Like seriously? Can’t believe this. What where the producers smoking to rope in Arjun Kapoor for a 70 crore budgeted movie?
