Housefull 2 is likely to get a 2700 screen approx release which will be amongst the biggest of all times and the biggest release this year. Only Bodyguard and Ra.One have had bigger releases as far as Hindi films are concerned. Don 2 had a similar release though went to around 3000 screens if its Tamil and Telugu versions are included.

Agneepath released earlier this year was on around 2650 screens and although that film like Housefull 2 also had a running time of 150 minutes plus it lost out in screens in West Bengal due to the release of a major Bengali film on the same day.

The Mumbai circuit will see the film hit 900 screens on close to 600 theatres.

    good now there is lesser burden and haters can stay quiet cos many were already irked without knowing that actually a bigger release requires higher share for verdicts by boi

    I m sure taran adarsh wil surely bash hf 2, neither he is updating any news related to hf2 nor he looks intrestd in hf 2 & also his review has came yet..
    I thnk he didnt get paid by hf 2 team…

    Just checked BMS in Noida and pretty surprised that the advance booking for Housefull 2 is very low! And Noida is a major advance booking centre.

    @Sam hmm but he said opening will be mind boggling in the end of first quarter article and i dnt think he has ever been paid for the review of an akki film and@shalu advance is good

      Tashan, I live in Noida and here the morning shows are cheaper and hence get sold out very fast for big movies. For Housefull the morning shows are not even half full till now and the afternoon shows’ advance is about 5%. I think this film will have a bigger opening in single screens than multiplexes.

    tat mind boggling response at the end of article was just 4 formality(by seeing the hype of h2) & we knw hw he went crazy for ready, singham, bg and ra.one,av etc he was blabering even b4 ond week of its releasng, nw he is thanda…

    Okay, I guess Dogaji was right after all :P Still, a very big release. Hopefully it will capitalize. Though advance booking in cities seems pretty slow at the moment, it does have some chances of picking up. And current booking is always the factor that decides everything.

    And good that BOI clarified that Don 2 was around 2,700 screens. 3,000 including dubbed versions (which collected 1-2 crores :P)

  7. Tashan said:

    so isnt the hype similar or even better at present? why wld he change the track? neither the advance is low nor the early wom is bad unless hes upset that they dint take him to singapore:D

    Why people tweet wrong info on twitter if they don’t know or are not confirmed .still the release is good and the extra- pressure is gone .Advance is good and hope HF2 is going to rock!! I am going to see first or second or third show …if all goes well

    NOW ITS THE TIME TO SHOW ALL AKKI HATERS THAT WHAT AKKI MEANS TO BOX OFFICE..TO PROVE THAT WE ARE TRUE AKKI FANS…

    • Jasp the Wasp said:

      You said the same thing during Desi Boyz. It was right after release that you disappeared – for a long time :P

      Personally, I am in neutral mode towards HF2. I want Akki to stop his spate of flops and disasters, but I hated HF and its director. Also to note, even if opening is not as per expectations, it is wise to remember that the lifetime is what counts. Opening can only get you so far. Remember Tees Maar Khan.

    and i really wantd @Doga to post a detaild HF2 economics post,…

  13. Tashan said:

    btw no preview for the critics and media so now they will have to buy the tickets tomorrow if they want to see the film, same thing happened at hf time as well…GREATTT apne paise lagao phir bash karo

  14. Aayush said:

    I agree with Serenzy. Want to know the economics of HF2. @Doga bhai please come up with the post, eagerly waiting for it.

    i would have supported akki if sajid khan wasnt the director. i hate that brother-sister combo.

    i’ll wait for rowdy. rowdy is the only good film akki has singed after namaste london.

    i consider namaste london a classic.
