PK vs Dhoom 3: PK showing much better trends

PK is showing much better trends than Dhoom 3, which indicates that the film will not only cross the 300 crore mark, but could go on to be a much bigger grosser.  The second week collection comparison suggests that PK is likely to be ahead by around 20-30% and could sustain even better during the weekdays.

Comparing the word-of-mouth, the Rajkumar Hirani film is easily the better liked film of the two. While Dhoom 3 also did well, it wasn’t carrying that ‘must watch’ tag – which could be a key factor, especially with the New Year holiday and a open week before the release of Tevar.

  • Some fools may dismiss D3 as a crap masala movie like CE, HNY, K3, Kick but the fact is that it grossed close to a 100 cr after its first week….AWESOME trending for a masala movie

    This is something which no other movie of anyone other than Aamir has achieved.

  • So two x factors going aamirs way – When there is negative to mixed wom then there is brand and when there is no brand then there is strong wom…hmmmm…so now as because there will be no best director and brand as they need to create excitement as par of DHOOM 3 and PK…AAMIR will take his time off.

  • Pk is showing much better trend than dhoom3 agreed but ranbir is better actor. Actors like amir,srk,salman,ajay,akki,hrithik,emran,ranveer and all ham , ham and ham a lot. While ranbir is just excellent out of the world actor.
    Aamir,srk,salman,ajay-akki,hr,emran,ranvir n all needs to learn a lot from ranbir. Box office wise, fan,raees,prdp,bb are going to collect much less than tamasha,jagga.

  • everyone comparing PK with D3(collection wise)and with 3IDIOTS (content wise)so its proved again only Aamir khan can compete with Aamir khan

  • PK might collect 50 cr in the 2nd weekend which is greater than the 2nd week collections of all movies except 3I and D3

    ALL the way Aamir khan

  • WORLDWIDE – 215crore
    OVERSIES – 15 million (USA – 10 million) record… previous record 8.2 million #dhoom 3… Aamir Khan is the real king of bollywood…

  • @aman – CE grossed 63 crs after first week despite clash with OUATIMD after 6 days…it trended much better than D3.

  • Pk has been more loved film amongst the two,so it deserves to be ahead.I wish film cross 300cr as per trade figure not from producers alone.

  • @ranbir fan you are trolling ranbir more than the top 6 stars Khans,akki,ajay and HR.Please stop to create hatredness against Ranbir on this site

  • Aamir khan has delivered a strong message to SRK.

    content is always the king. SUPERSTARDOM can always get you to 100 crores in 3 days but getting to 300 crores require visionary director (hirani) and creative entertaining script.

    While SRK has wasted his 48th year chasing garbage like FARAH KHAN & ROHIT SHITTY, Aamir stuck to his Ace who gave him BO 1st 200+ crores with excellent content.

    4 years later, duo will comfortably cross 300+ crores.

    SRK’s 49th year has to deliver now. If FAN and RAEES are low on entertainment quotient despite being high on content, they may not cross 225 crores.

  • I’ll be very happy if PK will surpass D3, because if content is concerned then PK is waaaayyyy ahead than D3. In fact, PK deserves much more collections. It should cross 300 Cr comfortably.

  • @kingshuk srk Christmas release Don 2 lifetime in overseas was 11.3 million dollar,while pk 6 days in overseas was same as lifetime of Don 2 there and because Christmas fall at 7th day the first week collection of pk is 13.5 million dollar.Stop talking about rubbish man, try to accept defeat rather than creating excuses,without ghajini still Aamir collected 63cr with tzp despite clash with welcome in 2007 that time he was director,producer and actor in the film.if it was solo release who knows tzp could topple oso in 2007,after with if and buts can do unthinkable as per your theory.

  • sky I completely agree with ur list and yes this @ranbir fan is a ranbir hater whose sole purpose is to create hatred against rk.plz ignore him.he is none other than @element in disguise

  • 350cr is definitely a realistic target…

    Im gonna go one step further and be the first to say 400cr as PK will get a 4th open werk as Tevar will flop- it will never take off…

  • @khan forget 225 crores for fan i even doubt weather it will break singham returns’s record or not. LOL. that’s king without deepika, rohit shetty, multistarrer, and big holidays.

  • @khan sorry but working with Rohit wasn’t a bad idea,because if srk required to do masala movie than Rohit shetty is definitely master in this generation and not to forget CE was the film who break 3i record first time in 4 years,and the way CE trended after first week shows it was a film which appreciated by people, while other hand doing hny is always the bad decision from srk,hny was the film which I heard since main noon naa released but it never went into production till 2013 but don’t know what made srk to do the film after 9 Yeats that too with 3 hours length.Very high hopes from fan now and we wish fan film bring old srk back.

  • The collection of PK is showing that audience are eagerly waiting for a good entertaining movie. RIP for crap movies like HNY.

  • @sky – Don 2 was not a brand like dhoom nir it generated wom like pk….Its just an Hollywood style flick which is directed to a class of audience and also I think on limited screens….and who said you that tzp was all because of aamir….amol gupta played a huge part in it….and talking about clash OSO too released with SAWARIYA andSRKs CDI was not released in multiplex or not on any holiday or festival and faced clash with KAFILA

  • @sky – Also Read boi….xmas has already started in overseas and BOI clearly stated that a film can only be judged after xmas….

  • top director of bollywood in my opinion whi csn guarantee box office success or great critical acclaim:
    rajkumar hirani
    aditya chopra
    karan johar
    sanjay leela bhansali
    rohit shetty
    rakesh roshan
    ashutosh gowarikar
    mohit suri
    subhash ghai(nw not a big name)

    srk has worked wid all of them except mohit n rajkumar hirani bt aamir has not worked wid any of them except proves srk always got d company of great directors from d start of his career n aamir always worked wid flop directors or new directors.his movies after 2000 are
    lagaan wid ashutosh gowarikar:all previous movies flop
    dil chahta hai wid farhan akhtar:debut director
    mangal pandey wid ketan mehta:flop director
    fanaa wid kunal kohli:flop director
    rang de basanti wid rakesh mehra:flop director
    taare zamin par:self directed
    ghajini wid murugadoss:debut director
    3idiots wid hirani:great director
    talaash wid reema kagti:flop director
    dhoom3 wid victor:flop director
    pk wid hirani:great director

    dis clearly proves aamir has worked wid newcomers or those directors whose previous movies were flop except hirani.he gave those directors hit in their credit.
