Which film can beat Dhoom 3 collections?

Question: In the coming days, which film has the best chance of beating Dhoom 3 worldwide collections of 520 crore? – Shahab

Answer: Only films that are released during festive periods can cross the 283-crore lifetime business of Dhoom 3, as the contribution from India is much higher than overseas markets. Aamir Khan’s upcoming film PK probably has the best chance, as it will open well not just in the overseas markets but also back here in India. If PK is as good as any of Rajkumar Hirani’s last three films, every record will be history.

But if PK falls below expectations, then it could be Bajrangi Bhaijaan, Fan or Prem Ratan Dhan Payo. Too early to predict anything on those films. Bajrangi Bhaijaan will be an out-an-out Salman Khan film, perfect Eid release. Not much is known about Fan, but Shahrukh Khan recently said that the film is “very intense yet commercial viable”. As for Prem Ratan Dhan Payo, the family audience will come out in numbers to watch Sooraj Barjatya’s feel-good romance, family values and tradition, but the difference will be the youth – if they don’t take a liking to the film, it may not be a huge grosser.

  • Due to this number game we really missing content driven movies….all are going for masala movies for breaking records…..hope fan will not disappoint……

  • HNY= SRK+Deepika+Diwali+5000 screens but cannot beat ETT forget Kick.
    SRK’s next Fan and Raess will chase Ready’s lifetime due to their non commercial nature.

  • eagerly waiting for bajrangi bhaijaan on eid 2015, prem ratan dhan payo on diwali 2015, sultan on eid 2016, shuddhi on diwali 2016.. salman khan show all the way.. blockbusters coming soon!

  • Pk! All the way

    From teaser it is clear that either it will be masterpiece or a disaster . Hoping for a masterpiece!!!!!!

  • A spoof —
    chameleon is thinking what do comment on pk article. Okk,, i should comment — pk is better than hny. I give pk 9.5 stars out of 10.
    Ohh no,, srk fans will bcum angry then !!
    Okk,, srk n aamir are 2 legends !!
    Fixed! This comment will give me more likes to support flop youngistan.

  • Am i the only non-emran fan who loved ghanchakkar ?
    Managed to watched ghanchakkar somehow…
    Loved it! An unorthodox,unconventional, ”hatke”, out of the box movie.
    Honest performance by emran-vidya!

  • iam not joking but mark my words brothers will be huge, first of all the film darma production.everyone nows karan johar’s marketing skills, plus the film has two lady actors one is one of the brightest tallent in india current hartbrob of youth the other has great fans following (not as good as the 3khans and hr).The original movie was criticality aclaimed and had great content iam not saying this will break d3 but it will suprise many people like yjhd.forgive my bad English and please reply whether this film has a chance to cross 200 cr.

  • Frankly, this year, no film can beat the records set by Dhoom 3. Maybe next year, Bajrangi Bhaijaan, PRDP or any big star’s films release during festive season!!

    PK may end up at around 250 Crores because it might not take a big opening due to its genre!!
    This year top grossers of the year will be:
    1) PK/Kick
    3) HNY (Lifetime business will be 212 Crores)
    4) Bang Bang
    5) SR

  • hard to predict only listening movie name it all depends upon story line perfect holiday non clashing and screenings along with better promotion and songs……if dhoom3 was in clash peroid u can imagine the result

  • definately bajrangi bhijaan will beat hindi version of dhoom3’s 261 crore collection cuz it will not be pre eid release. but prdp will earn more than it cuz u forgot family entertainer always brings whole family into theater and if family movie has salman then u just have to watch his previous record. srk already loosing his fans so 100 crore will be primary target for fan.

  • So chameleon has changed its colour srk fans… Arjun kapur trolled srk’s ce by saying talash more enjoyable than ce.

  • Haters barking on HNY’s weekday collections should know that HNY’s Monday collections were actually equal to Bhai’s opening day collection of Jai Ho, Akki’s Holiday’s opening day collections, ditto with Chotu’s Talaash.
    Infact the worldwide business of HNY’s 1st day was more than Talaash’s Lifetime domestic collection, & more than the combined lifetime business of Main aur Mrs. Khanna, Dhobi Ghat, London Dreams, God Tussi Great Ho & Marigold.

  • Bajrangi bhaijaan and Fan will be chasing Happy new year as far opening is concerned and PK regarding lifetime collections

  • Next year In sha Allah Fan will collect 300+ crs coz maneesh sharma is a director to look for.
    I think prdp wil b huge too… though um lil skeptical regarding bajrangi bhaijan… but kabir khan is a vgood director

  • Lol HNY can break records of D3 with manipulator calculator from Lal Mirchi or Paglarpur.
    Coming on topic, PK will be break. If PK not break D3 records then Salman’s BB sure break records of D3.

  • @champa leone no matter hw much u ppl try nothing cn stop hny from becoming a blockbuster.look at its trending.Rock solid.public hv given thumbs up to the movie.better luck next time,champa leone

  • Hrithik’s next films #Mohenjodaro and #RakeshJi next has max chances crossing 300-350 cr India and 500-600 cr worldwide !!

    Don’t underestimate power of Greek God ;)
