Udta Punjab Box Office Collection Update

Abhishek Chaubey’s Udta Punjab has shown a big drop in business on its 8th day at the box office. This was expected because the film was performing in North India and that was due to two reasons – Diljit Dosanjh’s presence and the fact that the film was about Punjab.

But ‘Udta Punjab’ had major competition in North India this week, from Diljit Dosanjh’s Punjabi film Sardaarji 2, which took a record-breaking opening on Friday.

The Shahid Kapoor starrer will now struggle to recover its costs through theatrical business. It might just about break-even when other revenue sources are included, but such films have little or no satellite value. The music has fetched a good price.

Overall, ‘Udta Punjab’ is heading towards domestic lifetime collections of around 60 crore. The verdict of the film is likely to be ‘Above Average’.

  • Thanks to censor board that it will do arnd 60 crs lifetime collection else it would have been 35-40 crs..!!

  • Budget is 40-45 cr, if music has fetched a good price then how come 60 cr is only “above average” and not “semi-hit” ? Please answer me indicine :)

  • Done business above , what it deserves, anywz sometime this type of publicity is more effective than marketing.

  • Udta Punjab lifetime could have been in 70-75Cr Range had Sardaar Ji2 not released this week,but now it will end its run Under 60Cr….. Diljit Dosanjh own movie killed business of its own UP….but Diljit cannot be blamed for this,he was not happy with this…he said that it was Sardaar Ji2 movie Producers decision n he could not do anything abt it

  • @indicine it is heard that censor board passed SULTAN with U/A certificate and told that they loved the film, it has exceeded all the expectation….is it true??

    • @Pratik, yes, it exceeded all their expectations just like the standing ovation that they gave for PRDP, FAN, Dilwale and many more.

      On a serious note, let’s stop believing these stupid reports and wait for the film.

  • Shahid kapoor will never cross 100 cr mark in his life-time. He is talented but nobody wants to watch his movies.

  • It is disappointing to see Udta Punjab struggling to become a Hit . It is one of the Best Movies of 2016 . It takes guts to make a movie on such a subject and Abhishek Chaubey, Anurag Kashyap, Shahid Kapoor, Alia Bhatt, Diljit and Kareena all of them should be applauded for making something which can trigger a change in the youngsters . Honestly the Online Leak has affected it big time . It was available online 2 days before the release and most of the people downloaded the movie instead of watching in Cinema . Those people who watch movies via downloading will never watch that movie in Cinema even if it is a masterpiece . The business has been affected by 20 to 25 % . Anyways it will be successful and it should go on to be Semi Hit . Drugs Di Maa Di !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • @indicine Infact these reports in past have tended to suggest that movie isn’t that great. Did any hear anything like this about a TWMR, or a Bajrangi Bhaijaan or Chennai express ??? No

  • Sultan has been passed by the CBFC with zero cuts. The board also said they loved the film and it will surpass expectations.

  • Even if Sardaarji 2 wouldn’t have released,it wouldn’t have crossed 70crs.

    WOM was mixed.

    Even Tamasha with a similar start did 68-69crs.

  • @Pratik well its a false news,SRK said during FAN promotion on NDTV that news of CBFC giving Standing Ovation was false n it was PR work…he said that CBFC never tells u whether they liked the movie or not…… So all these news saying CBFC gave Standing Ovations,said brilliant Movie,etc r all PR work n nothing else

  • Shahid kapoor back to his ’60cr club’.his next film rangoon is directed by vishal bhardwaj whose films are watched and liked by so called intellectuals only.

  • Peolpe reject good films like udta punjab and go and watch crappy masala movies of non actors, shame .

  • 60 lifetime

    Anyways i didnt liked it much. The movie was completely ruined by shahid kapur character for me . It was Very Unrealistic And Bogus 4 such a realistic Approach movie.

    Shahid was good in parts And if this you call awesome acting than There r many friends of mine who can do this type of joker Chutiyapa .

    Just on the basis of Real plot & language you can’t call Udta punjab a realistic movie.

    And watte ending..A Rockstar Falling for A 2rs bihari girl in minutes …How realistic is that .

    2 stars as a realistic movie.
    3 stars as a modern age masala movie.

  • Tis time censor board wont dissappoint…Super Sultan will b a solid entertainer …wil xceed all xpectations

  • Those who are talking about it is getting advantage of censor controversy. Then what about piracy? Piracy has damage more collection than censor controversy advantage.

  • sultan’s 2 batsman bowled on successive delieveries in 1st over.
    1.run time 2 hr 50 m
    2. CB gave standing ovation matlab gayle aur deviler out,only kohli remaining

  • Daljit was only option to lift the movie now he’s own movie performing well in recent times

  • Thanks to the controvercy it may touch 55cr,otherwise it would have been another Disaster from Anurag,but RAMAN RAGHAV looks like another flop from him.

  • The problem with shahid is he is not a commercial star…..He can’t pull an average masala film with his star power. ..like salman did with kick …or srk with hny ….or hrithik with bang bang… or akki does with his masala flicks. ….He is good actor with niche directors and niche films….which has very limited appeal…..that’s why he has not crossed even 70 cr. ..forget about 100 cr. …
