So Much For Don Trending

the film that had a 27 cr 2nd week after a 70 cr 1st week (65% drop)  is ending up with a 6 cr 3rd week. and ppl said don is being appreciated. ready 3rd week was 18 cr, 3 times of don, without any holiday, with 50 cr budget and in the month of scorching june heat.

 

obviously the so called ‘trending’ in second week was partially those who were ‘bound to watch’ (fans) who did not watch it within the 1st week as it was notan extended weekend. and partially it was the christmas holiday factor. aided by the fact that it had an open week two.

 

and imagine who does don in. players, a disaster in itself of gigantic proportions.

 

yaani abhishek khud to dooba hi, srk ko bhi le dooba.

    No commercial cinema is realistic. There is always some element of exaggeration. But they can probably happen. Like heroine’s duppatta getting blown away by the wind and falling right over the hero (may be, even half a kilometer away).

    But there are some scenes that are out-right unbelievable. Like the hero killing 100 people with his bare hands. 1 punch from hero sending the villain 30 feets away, making a dent into the irn wall. Hero jumping from ground floor to 1st floor, that too, without any run-up, etc.

    @aryan

    I clearly referred to the entire brigade of haters. Just proves that you’re brain isn’t dead, its there but fully fried and melting in your head.

    @manish

    bechara. Can’t handle the truth eh? Now go around NG attempting to convince the people that Don 2 was all-time disaster, that DDLJ was scene-by-scene copy of HAHK, etc. At least my brain wasn’t completely evaporated, unlike yours after seeing Ready and Bodyguard back-to-back multiple times. It ha sthe same effect on people as Tashan (the film, not the editor) – making your mind go blank and numb.

    @ Danish – “and christmas to new year is major holidays, atleast more holidays than an october eid. new year to 8th jan all schools, atleast in the north were closed, and many school reiamn closed till 15th jan but that hardly matters as players jhas already bashed don 2 in.”

    You will agree one thing. There is difference between Eid (Ramzaan Eid) holidays and other holidays like Diwali or Christmas. For whole month no film get released and hence there is much more crowd once the film is released. Also, since for 30 days people (those who observe roza) do not go for any movie since they strictly follow the prayers and other things. Even the members of the family who do not observe fasts, avoid films because of prayers and other things. Soooo, once the ramazaan month is over, the only entertainment, beside celebrations, is movie. And this is not only for people observing roza but also for other movie goers who did not get any movie released during RAMADAN. Additionally, this year Ganesh Chaturthi also faalen with Ramadan Eid and hence the holidays were more as compared to previous years. Since u have lived for around 5 years in Mumbai, u must be knowing the importance and mood of the people of Maharashtra. And if Bhai gets his movie released at this point of time then it becomes SONE PE SUHAGA” for all.

    @Aryan – “So SRK fan trying hard to be FUNNY by making sarcastic comments on Salman which is not working because.Neither Salman nor his fans had ever claimed to make an so called intelligent or smart CINEMA” –

    Keep singing Dhinka chika, dhinka chika ……… with pocket dance of Bhai…. SALLU IS THE BEST, BHAI IS THE BEST..

    The truth that danish cannot accepted is that BG had a run at theatres only because of Eid. I repeat, only because of Eid. Now if people think that with a MBKD, which left BG more or less untouched in mass circuits (its main territory) left BG dropping by 80%, then only God can humour you. Fact is fact, and the fact is Don 2 is more liked and has trended way better than BG. Now wonder what next our danish is gonna say. hmm. To point it out before he raves again ;-

    * Christmas, New Year fell on Sundays; reduced holiday factor hugely (esp. in comparisin to 3 Idiots for which Christmas fell on its first day).

    * Ticket prices were not raised anywhere. Rant as much as you wish, and get dubious “facts” from Delight, but everyone who has gone to the theatres know exactly that Don 2 prices were same as any usual multiplex film like ZNMD. So that’s one excuse less.

    * Don 2 was low on pomotions. Now next comment will be that i’m lying; ask anyone on the streets and they will answer you. Now hat next? Compare promotion to Ra.One or Hollywood films? You have to find a better excuse.

    In short, there is no need to have this thread. Ideally, this thread should be:-

    “So much for the haters’ rantings and predictions”.

    @Danish u hv agreed at least to part of it. As far as Christmas and New year season is concerned not all colleges and schools are closed for this long. These days hardly there are 2 to 3 days holidays and in Mumbai CBSC and ICSC (schools) have stopped that also. The competition is so high these days that students use their holidays in coaching classes or studies and very few are interested in movies. This is the time when they go for movies on week end. Corporates’ have made a rule that the leaves should be evenly staggered and not every one can avail at the end of the year and that also not in bulk. Yes NRIs’ can do that coz they are forced to, specially western countries and Dubai as these countries are virtually closed from 24th to 6th of Jan.

    SRK is so selfish ,
    SRK deliberately raised the Multiplex ticket rates by 25-30% as both movies DON 2 and Ra.One were crap to supercrap products.

    He knew that movies will show “Niagra falls” from weekdays onwards [or at best week 1 onwards] , so the only way to recover money was to hike the ticket rates which he did.

    Instead of apologising to his fans and furious neutral audience , he decided to hike the ticket rates,

    And now everyone knows the result: Ra.One is disaster and DON 2 a flop.

    @danish – This is very normal. The ticket rates increases with every new release and then gradually comes down after 2 to three days. You will find variation in rates even during the day. In the morning shows these are lower as compared to evening shows. Some mplex chains give very low ticket rates on a particular day of the week like Cinemax on Tuesday 3-6 show. These things are very common and normal nothing very special wrt some specific release. Price difference between 2d and 3d will always be there with every film which are in 2d and 3d as well.

And brillaint assumption by you that SRK Fans have money and they can afford and Salman Fans are poor so they can’t. Did you did diploma in this? Don’y make yourself look like a fool.

    @Danish – I dont know about delhi which u know better. I can talk only about Mumbai where I live and observe the things. 10 persons cannot go on 30 days leave at a time, that’s what i wanted to say. Through out the year the malls are crowded only during weekends and during festival seasons during the week days as well but not much difference when compared to normal week days during the day time.

    Not all students are going for IIT, JET,IIM, CAT or MBA coaching. But the competition and burden is so much that even the students from commerce or Arts try to do some additional courses in their evening time which gets converted into day classes during these holidays (count sunday also).

    Anyways, I do not have data bank like u have so giving figures are not possible for me.
