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 […]

Box Office: ‘Raanjhanaa’ sees good response, ‘Shortcut Romeo’ and ‘Enemmy’ don’t get a chance

Written by on June 24th, 2013

Last week’s prediction pretty much came true as between the three releases, it was ‘Raanjhanaa’ that came trumps. It was said in this column that the film’s opening won’t really hit the roof but would see gradual rise of the content turns out to be a winner. This was indeed the case as this Aanand […]

Fukrey is another success story of 2013

Written by on June 21st, 2013

In a year of surprises where Aashiqui 2 has turned out to be a Blockbuster after a very good start and Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani has proven to be a smash Blockbuster after an exceptional opening, Fukrey too has managed to have its own share of the pie, though in smaller measures. After a rather ordinary beginning (which […]

‘Raanjhanaa’ to lead at multiplexes, ‘Shortcut Romeo’, ‘Enemmy’ for single screens

Written by on June 20th, 2013

As many as three films release this weekend – Raanjhanaa, Shortcut Romeo and Enemmy. Out of these, Raanjhanaa has been the most heavily promoted while Shortcut Romeo and Enemmy have seen some decent visibility around them. Though this is leading to a crowded box office, Raanjhanaa is all set to get the best shows at the multiplexes due to backing […]

Box Office: YJHD leads over ‘Fukrey’, ‘Ankur Arora Murder Case’

Written by on June 17th, 2013

It was stated in this column last week that neither ‘Fukrey’ nor ‘Ankur Arora Murder Case’ would set the box office on fire, former would take a better opening than latter and ‘Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani’ would continue to register best footfalls. This is exactly what happened as it was the Karan Johar-Ayan Mukerji-Ranbir Kapoor-Deepika […]

Box Office: ‘Yamla Pagla Deewana 2’ is a coverage affair

Written by on June 14th, 2013

With the opening weekend of ‘Yamla Pagla Deewana 2′ not really setting the box office on fire, there was a scare factor around the film nose-diving in the weekdays. Fortunately for the makers, the results weren’t as bad as it seemed back then as the days to follow were reasonably okay. Yes, it was ‘Yeh […]

Yamla Pagla Deewana 2 disappoints

Written by on June 10th, 2013

It was largely felt that post the success of Yamla Pagla Deewana and the kind of recall value that the film enjoyed, the sequel would take a good start for itself. Unfortunately though, while one part of the prediction (an average beginning of 50%) was met, the apprehensions [as stated in last week's column] around ‘comedy […]

BOX OFFICE: Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani marches towards the 150 crore mark

Written by on June 7th, 2013

It is time to stop compiling collections and just enjoy the show. If the weekend collections of ‘Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani’ promised a Superhit status for the Karan Johar production, the weekdays have set the stage for the film to enter the Blockbuster arena. The unbelievable has happened, what with the over 40 crores coming […]

Box Office – ‘Yamla Pagla Deewana 2’ to open well

Written by on June 6th, 2013

Bollywood Summer has begun. If Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani continues to create and break records, the Deols too can expect a record start for a film of theirs with Yamla Pagla Deewana 2 arriving this weekend. The buzz is good, the hype has been just right, the songs are reasonably popular and the look is […]

Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani hits the roof, is a bumper success

Written by on June 3rd, 2013

The prediction pretty much come true to the T as Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani embarked on a winning start from the word Go. It was always on the cards that the film would open huge and once the film took an opening in the range of 60%-70% with premium multiplexes in upwards of 80% (which […]

Box Office: Miserable week for Bollywood as IIP, HHRCK go down

Written by on May 31st, 2013

Preity Zinta’s ‘Ishkq In Paris’ has turned out to be a colossal disaster. If the opening was extremely poor and there was no escalation over the weekend, what shocked further was to see further slide in (already) low collections over the weekdays. With rapid decline in footfalls, this is one of those rare films with […]

Box Office: ‘Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani’ all set for a bumper opening

Written by on May 30th, 2013

The day has arrived. Bollywood, which had pretty much got used to seeing successive 100 crore earners last year, is seeing quite a draught this year, what with only ‘Race 2′ managing this feat and that too just about. Oh yes, there has been a massive surprise like a blockbuster ‘Aashiqui 2′ (which incidentally is […]

Six months to go for Deepika and Ranveer’s ‘Ram Leela’

Written by on May 29th, 2013

It may still be a little early to say that the countdown has begin. Still, given the fact that in today’s time marketing and promotion of films have taken gigantic proportions and all milestones are pretty much celebrated en route to an eventual arrival of a biggie, it has just been revealed that Ram Leela […]

Box Office: ‘Ishkq In Paris’ and ‘Hum Hai Raahi CAR Ke’ bring gloom at box office

Written by on May 27th, 2013

It was always on the cards that both ‘Ishkq In Paris’ and ‘Hum Hai Raahi CAR Ke’ would have to rely entirely on the word of mouth publicity since it was a given that opening of any sort was going to be a challenge. However, despite limited expectations, one didn’t expect empty houses greeting these […]
