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.

  • @champa leone,thank u bro for making me feel special.i always dreqmt of having someone who will dedicate his entire life for me.u follow all my comments on indicine and fb make such hilarious spoof of them.thank u bhai.keep it up

  • #Krrish4 will be the first film entering 500 cr club India during 2017 !! Rakesh ROSHAN already said that it will have global appeal n vfx of Hollywood company !!

  • 1.PK
    2.Prem Ratan Dhan paayo
    these are the three films who can cross D3’s collection at domestic market. PK may cross worldwide too.
    I feel the WOM will be positive for these 3 films. Also,they are releasing at the time of festivals.

  • @chameleon
    hny is trending towards hit. Stop doing chamchagiri.
    Ranbir not gud actor. Did shit movies like barfi,rockstar,yjhd.
    Create fake publicity by affair hype with co-stars. Publicity hungry ranbir.

  • HNY got good chance to cross dhoom 3 but now it will fail so now we will say fan and if fan will fail then we will say raees but by that time any other aamir or salman movie should not cross dhoom 3 collection

  • I think it would be difficult for the 2015 releases to match dhoom 3’s collection. only possible if prdp has great content

  • Dhoom 3 collection is a big challenge for not only our king but also to other actors.In dhoom 3 there was double role means 2 aamir and we know that but till death we will say that dhoom worked coz of brand and yrf

  • I think this year no film will come close to D3….Bt i think only masala movie staring 3khan have challenge that.bt i dont think salman can challenge d3 with baseless masala movie only srk can open 300 club with his acting ability and class movie….even i dont think amir can achieve that without hirani or again Dhoom brand…..i think it will safe for 2 years…

  • Simple answer—- Dhoom 4!!!

    I think Dhoom brand is too big than any other superstar…Salman tried his best with KICK..it was his best chance..SRK failed with HNY…Remember Fan is’nt a holiday release,so forget D3 records…

  • I have learnt that YRF’s Fan is an unofficial remake of Kunal Khemu’s Superstar!! Is it true? No malice intended! I am waiting for a SRK film. That is Raees!!

  • Bollywood is losing its magic…there was where all kinds of movies were released horror comedy romance action drama but now a days only masala flims..collections are going high but content is going down…how can we challenge Hollywood.???

  • This is quite a partial comment, but for me its clearly PK. For multiple reasons. Christmas is the best season to release a movie in the overseas. Aamir’s unique marketing and star-power should ensure powerful weekend collections. Rajkumar Hirani would ensure a strong content which wont let the collections drop in first week.

    The real trump card is Christmas and new year holidays. While Salman with Eid gets only 2 or 3 free days Srk with Diwali gets 3 or 4 free days but Aamir with Christmas gets 2 holidays in 2 successive weeks. Happy New Year could have crossed 230 mark comfortably had it got 2 more holidays this week.

    Hands down. Pk has got almost every thing. A star director. A star actor. A strong ensemble cast and a holiday season. Word of mouth is still the most important factor. The teaser looks unique so i do feel WOM might be as good as 3 idiots. I don’t think any other film stands a chance at the moment.

  • @champa last yr rk gave all khan,hro,akki fans a shock of their life as he almost did the untinkable of crossing 3idiots lifetime from just 2800 screens.so dont underestimate the power of rk.rk and srk will b the two most successful stars of nxt yr.marl my words and bookmark my page

  • i want that all these movies only cross 100 crores mark, but become cult movies for srk as well as salman like their last cult chak de india and tere naam.

  • after flop hny I’m looking forward to PK only.
    and hunger games too.
    yes dhoom 3 will not safe now I think pk or prdp will chase. fan will be flop.

  • Pk, Bajarangi Bhaijan or PRDP has a pottential to break dhoom 3 collection mainly depending upon content and word of mouth to sustain well in the long run to break such a huge collection.

  • @ Shaggy.
    i heard many times that ppl says dhoom 3 worked because of brand but pardon me all u says that SRK itself is a brand then why HNY drops so badly

    Brands work i agree but its the star itself who pulled the audience in thtre with his unique marketing strategy plus his working style and his different roles

  • If not PK then Bajrangi bhaijaan has 50/50 chance but my bet on PRDP which will definately collect more than dhoom3.

  • I don’t trust on Ashutosh Gwarikar but if has created intense love story for his next movie Mohenjo Daro, then who knows there is a chance for this film to break records unless it’s to grumpy like Jodha Akbar and Swades. Grumpy movies don’t work well at Box office but if the film has a commercial test with awesome love story combined with heavey action scenes as it is going to be, then there is a good possibility to break records by Mohenjo Daro since Hrithik has taken such a huge amount of money from this movie only which no actor in recent time can ever imagine to take!!

  • @zeeshan, jai ho opening day-17.5cr.
    Hny monday- 15cr. But according to u 15cr is more than 17.5cr….ANDHE KI DUKAN.

    Don’t forget kick’s tuesday collection were more than double of jthj, ra one, don2’s opening day collections.
