‘Toilet Ek Prem Katha’ has done what many films have failed to do this year i.e show big growth on the all-important Saturday at the box office. The extreme drought like situation at theatres has ended, and it’s Akshay Kumar once again who has turned out to be the saviour of sorts for the industry.
The superstar has always been one of the few stars who the exhibitors love. A few years ago, it was only because of his constant flow of film releases and his dedicated fanbase who would increase the footfalls in theatres. Now, the multiplexes are also filling up and the trade is rejoicing for the first time after ‘Bahubali 2’ in April / May this year. Tubelight did fairly well in its first 3 days, but the expectations from a Salman Khan Eid release are always much higher.
On Saturday, evening onwards, business at multiplexes peaked with NCR, Punjab, Mumbai, Pune, Bangalore just to name a few, were running at 70-80% occupancy. The smaller centres were also performing. The all-India collections of the film on Saturday is Rs 17.10 crore, with the two day total crossing the 30 crore mark in the domestic markets.
In comparison, a bigger film with a much bigger budget – last week’s release, Jab Harry Met Sejal, never managed to cross the 16 crore mark on any day, even though it took a better start of more than 15 crore on Friday. It also goes to show that a strong trend is more important than a good opening day because ‘Toilet Ek Prem Katha’ now has a chance of surpassing the lifetime business of ‘Jab Harry Met Sejal’ in just 5 days.
On Sunday, the film is recording better collections than Saturday and shows until 2PM suggest the film could cross the 20 crore mark by the end of the day. There’s a partial holiday for Krishna Janmastami on Monday, so multiplex business for the late night shows could hold better than normal Sundays.
Tuesday is a big holiday for ‘Independence Day’, a major weekend that the film got for itself when SRK decided to avert the clash. ‘Toilet Ek Prem Katha’ is now looking at 5-day weekend business in the 70-75 crore range, which would make it a big winner at the box office.
Toilet Ek Prem Katha Box Office Collections:
- Friday – 13.1 crore
- Saturday – 17.1 crore
- Total – 30.2 crore
Indian Theatrical Rights for Toilet: Ek Prem Katha has been sold at 67 Crores ( 53 Crores + GST) to Viacom by KriArj . This is said to be a record for Akshay Kumar Movie with the previous highest being Rustom at 42 Crores
Recovery For Viacom will be if Toilet Ek Prem Katha crosses 140 Crore All India nett. Now if u assume Sunday 21 Crore Monday 10 Crore Independence day 19 Crore still it can max accumulate 125 Crore. THat is below Raees and akshay higest grosser Rowdy. Distributor is gonna loss any how
KriArj are themselves distributing the film. Anyways, now even the sky is limit. The film will trend really well – just wait and watch now :)
Jealousy at its peak
abe @maria srk ka fan…….. 100 cr pa hit hai 150 cr pa super hit……………tera srk to iske half bhi nahi kar saka… pagal
Jealousy at its peak.
India Theatrical Right for JhMs has been sold at 90 crores(75 15 crore GST)
tha means it need 200 crore for recovry (if 67 crore need 140 crore for recovry)
that means JHMS is a EPic Epic Disaster of the Century
TEPK only needs 105 crore for recovry becoz viacom 18(producers of TEPK) is distributing it.
Lol.. get your figures right. Toilet will already be a hit after 65 crores at box office. Budget 25 cr + Prints & Distribution approx 15 to 20 cr.
And what about after tuesday.?? Movie will remove from theatre ???.lol after that movie will do some decent business ,minimim 6-7 crore till friday. After Friday ,weekend will come ..and movie will earn minimum 20 crore in that weekend…and after that movie will still run in single screen and multiplex too due to positive word of mouth..so lifetime income will be above 140 crore at domestic box office…that will be higher than raees…?
What r u talking about? Do u even have a sense of cinema business??
If you dont know how to apriciate so plz yaar dont comment like this man..kuch to achha araha he tumko kya jata he ..
When v talk of Net collections then comparable price is 53. GST will b adjusted with GST on collections.
#indicine when will u post article on final lbo prediction of TEPK.
Usually u post it on sunday morning . Nd now its evening
Please answer my question.
Indicine is a biased. It is a fake and is run by paikhans
Nice movie akki
Now this is Akshay Kumaaaaar … Hats off to him
3rd day is 20+
4th day is 15
5th day is 18 CR
Five day weekend is 83 CR+
@indicine , the movie is going to gross more than 82+cr for sure. I think u have written 70-75 by mistake. Correct it.
BEST MOVIE AFTER BAHUBALI 2 IN THIS YEAR
Still 20 cr per day is missing,Akhay should try at 25 cr per day with welly promoted big budget movie which help him to cross 200 cr net,because with the start the max lifetime collection ranges upto 150 cr,Toilet will have same lifetime collection like Rustom
The ticket prices for his movies are very less as compare to Khan’s films…. Khan’s movie tickets increase by 20% in single screens and 30% in multiplexes. Hence it becomes difficult for Akshay to go past 150 cr. Also his movie comes after every 4 months and releases on around 2800 to 3000 screens.
Akki is in his own lane. He works hard to release a movie every 3-4 months. He is lifeline of exhibitors. Even Akki can spend 12 months on 1 movie but then exhibitors will be ruined.
Akshay Kumar deserves success for the variety of roles he is offering to the audience… Socially relevant films with entertainment & slice of life films are much better than silly rom-coms… All the best Akshay…
Only superstar that not need big actress , not big director, not holidays , not good songs , unknown director , only one man army Akshay …
A true srk fan
Superb Collection. Akshay has overtaken SRK by his good content films. I don’t remember any good movie of SRK after Don 2. Akshay line up is terrific. He is becoming the new face of Bollywood. Hats off
Well what to do? SRK haven’t learn from his mistakes and continue doing bakwas films. His stardom is going to end if he continue giving flops.
Wow…great news..I am jumping with joice.. Before the release i scared that this film might be a lecture type film and maybe a flop. But this film is a family masala entertainer. After a long time we saw a film with desi feel..
Watched the movie yesterday, it’s decent but nothing great. Akshay Kumar is once again in Full form. Anupam Kher & Divyendu Sharma are very funny. But the problem with the movie is that it drags too much. The Climax is predictable and is somewhat bullshit. But the movie can be enjoyed with Family.
Overall Rating: 3/5!!
Film Lifetime Prediction: 150cr
150 crores is still good naa ?
revenge is best served cold, remember OUATIMD vs Chennai Express, SRK had not kept his word and back stabbed jeetandra after begging for a solo release, this is the beauty of karma, what you sow you will definitely reap that, SRK is finished now and mark my words Anand Rais film with Saruk will be an epic disaster
I second your opinion
The extreme drought like situation at theatres has ended, and it’s Akshay Kumar once again who has turned out to be the saviour of sorts for the industry.
You nailed it, Team… You describe Akki so nicely…
Akshay Kumar proves here once again that why the world call him KHILADI… Go Akki Go…
Best movie of akshay kumar After ‘holiday’ in terms of repeat value and wider reach…!
It will challenge RR Biz, needs tax free in 3-4 States…!
I have just one word for Akshay Kumar-WOW…..
1st Day – 13.10 Crores
2nd Day – 17.10 Crores
Total for 2 days – 30.20 Crores…
In 2 days, it is already more than half of the lifetime of JHMS… ROFL…
And some jerks SRKians were barking JHMS will cross 175+ Crores…
Trust me, Today and Next 3 days are huge for this film… The film, that is off beat, not a masala entertainer, no popular song and released on the dull phase of Bollywood…
5th 100 grosser in a row for Akki, His hardwork is unmatchable… His way of choosing scripts is unmatchable… Go Akki Go…
Will cross Jab Hijra Met Sissy lifetime in 4 days flat.
JAN 2016 – AIRLIFT
JUN 2016 – HOUSEFULL3
AUG 2016 – RUSTOM
FEB 2017 – JOLLY LLB2
AUG 2017 – ToiletEkPremKatha..
Darling of exhibitors. Inox, PVR etc. would shut their shops if Akki does not release films every 4 months
add to that baby, gabbar, singh is bling, holiday
It will cross Raees lifetime soon
with holiday of Independence Day and pateti – Parsi New Year (in Gujarat and Maharastra) film have chance to do 130 cr+ lifetime..
Akshay kumar’s performance in TEPK is his most complete peformance , Even better thn his recent movies…!
IF TEPK would hve took this much jump with clash to JHMS, INdicine would be like ‘ poor reports of JHMS helps TEPK’
Now Indicine is tired of posting ‘ another hit by akshay kumar’
I think 5 day weekend will easily be 70 crores. How much more it can go is to be seen now. But first week will easily cross 80-82 crores now. Monstrous hit
All hell akki..the one man industry who always have come to rescue without any top actress, director and production house. Now we want Mogul on christmas 2018
That would be amazing
Only Akshay kumar Movies Takes this much jump despite opening double digit figure…!
Even a crap like H3 (according to public) did 22CR on sunday from a 15Cr opening …!
Akki is going to go above 150 crores with Robo 2 (Hindi version)…
No 225 +
Even Krk who destroyed all major films, failed with Akki and has to admit :
I really salute @akshaykumar who took big risk n accepted original Desi stories like Airlift, JollyLLB2, Rustom, TEPK, Padman, GOLD, Moghul!
Power of Akki
