Box Office – ‘B.A. Pass’ gets entry in second week

Written by on August 10th, 2013

Bollywood earned a bonus last week with an unsuspecting success in the form of ‘B.A. Pass’. Though the film was pretty much unheard of for the longest time, it did manage to make a decent impression at the box office. The very fact that it managed to cover it’s costs must be a reason for […]

Box Office: No respite for Bollywood

Written by on August 3rd, 2013

It was a very poor week for Bollywood at the box office with not even a single new release managing to make any dent. Out of 8-9 Hindi films that were in the pipeline, only four could boast of some semblance of release – Bajatey Raho, Nasha, Issaq or Luv U Soniyo. However none of these […]

Mayhem at the Box Office

Written by on August 2nd, 2013

If new releases of the week gone by hardly threw any impressive numbers, nothing better is expected in days to come. In fact, it is only going to get worse with as many as seven Hindi releases arriving this weekend. Astonishing, but true! These films are ‘Rabba Main Kya Karoon’, ‘B.A. Pass’, ‘Calapor’, ‘Chor Chor […]

No fireworks at the box office

Written by on July 29th, 2013

It was a largely unimpressive weekend at the box office for Bollywood films with none of the four new releases managing to do find much of an audience. Though one didn’t really expect terrific opening numbers from Bajatey Raho, Nasha, Issaq or Luv U Soniyo, it was expected that at least a couple of these would […]

Bajatey Raho, Issaq, Nasha to lead this week

Written by on July 25th, 2013

An avalanche of movies is arriving on screens this weekend, what with as many as four notable releases in the anvil. Primarily word of mouth films, one expects a better start in the multiplexes for Bajatey Raho whereas Nasha should open better in the single screens. As for Issaq, it does look like an interesting film and […]

Girish starts well with Ramaiya Vastavaiya, Nikhil returns with D-Day

Written by on July 22nd, 2013

As mentioned in the column last week, both Ramaiya Vastavaiya and D-Day were meant to be word of mouth affairs. This is how both the film found an audience in theatres. Though it wasn’t a flying start for either of the two films, they did settle down as the day progressed with good escalation coming in. Of […]

Box Office – ‘Bhaag Milkha Bhaag’ aims for ‘Zindagi Naa Milegi Dobara’ record

Written by on July 19th, 2013

Bhaag Milkha Bhaag has exceeded expectations at the box office. After enjoying a very good opening weekend, this Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra directed film managed to sustain really well in weekdays. Due to very good word of mouth, there was limited fall post a healthy weekend. All of this meant that the film indeed was ‘running’ […]

Action and romance for audience with ‘D-Day’ and ‘Ramaiya Vastavaiya’

Written by on July 18th, 2013

Bollywood is smiling again. After ‘Fukrey’ and ‘Raanjhanaa’, ‘Bhaag Milkha Bhaag’ is doing quite well too. Now ‘D-Day’ and ‘Ramaiya Vastavaiya’, two altogether distinct movies, are releasing this weekend and it is expected that the good run would continue. Inside reports around ‘D-Day’ have been very solid and is a realistic action drama with a […]

ROMP and Farhan earn a success with Bhaag Milkha Bhaag

Written by on July 15th, 2013

Prediction came true to the T as Bhaag Milkha Bhaag indeed had an average occupancy of 60% by the time Friday came to a close. It was Paid Previews for the ‘aam junta’ that gave a good indication of what would unfold in days to come as 1.5 crores came in from the evening/night shows on Thursday itself. Soon after, […]

Lootera hangs on during weekdays

Written by on July 13th, 2013

When Lootera did show good escalation over the weekend, it was expected that weekdays would stay on to be stable. Well, they did stay stable, but on the lower side, as a result of which the film collected 27 crores at the end of first week. That may have still seemed okay had the weekend not […]

Box Office – Rakeysh Mehra and Farhan promise good start for ‘Bhaag Milkha Bhaag’

Written by on July 12th, 2013

Farhan Akhtar has managed to build a good branding around himself. With class attached to his name, there is a loyal urban audience which is expected to step in for ‘Bhaag Milkha Bhaag’. The film arrives three years after his last solo release ‘Karthik Calling Karthik’ which was a psychological affair and didn’t really do […]

A director’s actor, Girish ‘surrendered’ to Prabhudheva

Written by on July 11th, 2013

Girish Kumar is just starting his career and making his debut as an actor with Ramaiya Vastavaiya. However one realisation that he has quickly managed to gain in his very first outing is the fact that he is a director’s actor. “Though he has been trained as an actor, both in overseas as well as […]

Lootera shows escalation, Policegiri has sparse release

Written by on July 8th, 2013

It was always expected that Lootera would primarily find audience in premium multiplexes of the country. Given the glowing pre-release reviews and insiders testimonials, the film had seemed to set for an opening around the 50% mark. While footfalls were a tad lesser than that to begin with, there was good escalation over the weekend owing […]

Ghanchakkar may touch 40 crore mark

Written by on July 5th, 2013

It was mentioned in this column last week that for Ghanchakkar to eventually come up trumps, a lot would depend on the weekday collections. Well, as it happened, the film didn’t quite cover much distance after a decent weekend and collected around 10 crores more. The film did stay stable but that was on the lower […]

Lootera all set to grow on word of mouth, Policegiri counts on Sanju power

Written by on July 4th, 2013

Sonakshi Sinha is in for some real interesting weekend ahead. After working in five back to back hero-centric films (Dabangg, Rowdy Rathore, Joker, Son of Sardaar, Dabangg 2), four of which crossed the 100 crore mark, she would now be seen in her first ever outing which has both her and hero in equal measures. […]

Ghanchakkar survives average reviews, finds multiplex audience

Written by on July 1st, 2013

Last week’s prediction of Ghanchakkar came true on two counts. First and foremost, it opened much better in multiplexes when compared to single screens. Secondly, the average footfalls for this widely released film were in 40%-50% range. However, it was also predicted that the film would see some good rise in collections over the weekend. Well, […]

Box Office: ‘Raanjhanaa’ is a winner for Dhanush, Soman, Aanand, Krishika

Written by on June 28th, 2013

‘Raanjhanaa’ has defied all odds and turned triumphant at the box office. If the opening day was good and the weekend resulted in added momentum, the weekdays brought with them further good news. They were ultra stable right through and added collections of over 3 crores on each of the days. This resulted in a […]

Box Office: Emraan & Vidya ‘jodi’ to ensure good footfalls for ‘Ghanchakkar’

Written by on June 27th, 2013

With ‘Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani’, ‘Fukrey’ and ‘Raanjhanaa’ doing well, industry is in a buoyant mood. This should be further aided by the arrival of ‘Ghanchakkar’ which is carrying positive vibes. Talkie promos of the film have managed to garner some very good response. These should also ensure that at multiplexes, the film opens well […]
