    1. Jasp the Wasp

      Have you seen Gurgaon (multiplex major center)? HF2 is behind Dabangg, and needless to say quite behind Don 2 :P

  3. AwesomeAkshay

    so HF2 beats Don 2 and now its the third biggest . If it was really 4000 screens than it would have been at top

  4. Fasel

    Wasn’t Don 2’s opening Friday a working day? So we’re comparing a working day to a holiday? Right?

  5. Rockyy

  8. Rockyy

    Post heading says Hf2 opened better den d2.. N figures give us a clear indication.. Btw an article says Hf2 opened at similar level as d2 … This article is providing a bit of relief 4 akki fans ( by sayin at similar level wich is nt true n i hpe ppl ova here understands basic mathematics) bt sum of d akki fans think dat hf2 has really crossed d2 in kanpur… Ppl dreaming big can also get a nightmare…

  9. Jasp the Wasp

    LOL so after a week of saying “Hf2 has holiday benefit, will surely open big” these sadak-chaap Akki fans are claiming Good Friday is not holiday. Talk about a bunch of trashy kameenas!

  10. Ank

    Lol at good friday is a holiday in india….!
    Dhondu just chill abhi toh rowdy bhi baki hai.

  11. Tashan

    Kanpur gaya tail lene kal baat karengay with all india figures

  12. Tashan

    @ank aur Rowdy ke baad punjabi KHILADI

  13. Fasel

    I read somewhere the opening day is around 14 to 14.25 ( exact figures out tomorrow).

  14. Fasel

    Yup thats where I saw it. Thanks for posting.

  15. Fasel

    I’m confused. I thought Friday was a holiday in India, that’s whats been I’ve reading on NG for the past few weeks. Right?

    1. Jasp the Wasp

      Yes, it is a perfectly proper holiday. Akki fans will blabber any nonsense to say it isn’t :P

  16. Kunal

    Good Friday is a legitimate holiday in india… atleast don’t be ignorant on facts people..

  17. Doga

    Fasel, Good Friday is a “Govt” Holiday in India, that means Govt Jobs and Govt Schools and Colleges will be shut down.

    But Private companies keep working.

    So Compared to National holidays like EID, Republic Day or Diwali, you can say its like 50%-60% holiday.

    But yes its distributed all over India, not just few states.

  18. Kunal

    But good to see akki movie beatng tht gandu srk movie

  19. Tango

    Fasel yeah Good Friday is aprim and proper holiday in India.

    BTW- Hows the little one doing?

  20. Fasel

    Thanks Doga & Tango.

    Tango – little one is alhamdolillah doing great. You’re barely on FB these days.

  21. Doga

    # HF2 Early Estimates : Raj 78, CP : 55 CI – 45 EP- 114 DUP – 255 Bihar – 30 Assam- Orissai 15 Nizam-Andhra – 64 Mysore 47.

  22. Fasel

    13.50 is really low. I am finding this hard to believe. HF2 had everything going for a 15+ opening.

  23. Fasel

    But wasn’t Akki fan yelling HF2 will open between 17 to 20.

  24. Sahil19

    Good friday in india is not much of a national holiday, same here in UK, government jobs are given holiday, its not a national, if it achieves a good return or manages to gross 100 crores its in between IPL, poor reviews, than its great. I seen it, the film is highly entertaining, it has good comedy, some great action secenes, and drama.

  25. Fasel

    But *weren’t* Akki fans yelling HF2 will open between 17 to 20.

  26. Sahil19

    a lot of srk fans were yelling MNIK< ra 1 and don 2 will break 3 idiot records, so calm down man. Most fans do it. also if it had a big holiday release it would of been record breaking.

  27. AwesomeAkshay

    IPL affected HF2 thats why it lost around 10 lakh in Rajasthan

  28. Serenzy

    *10 lakh in Rajasthan*

    Hahahaha…!!

    ……..

    Anyways its a good opening but its d final nett dat counts…!!

    Though opening cud have been bettr but anyways its a relief for akki supporters like me nontheless.

    It looks set to cross my preds.
    Watching it today.

    ……,

    @tashan

    kabhi to fair and unbiased bana karo.

    -don2 1st day was working day….Christmas collided on Sunday.
    And India is no Christian country to have big weekend holidays unlike overseas.

    -IPL dint affect hf2 one bit…Instead d neutral audience was waiting for d WOM to come in…Now dat its on d good side so sat/sun will be huge…Hope it trends well and doesnt crash on monday.

    Sahil and Tashan,
    stop whining dat ipl is affecting hf2…I hv given a clear cut reason above.
    Dont behave like TY and DB days…Grow up!!

  29. Rockyy

    @serenzy: completely agree… N sum ppl r changing their minds.. Pehle bolte hai Ipl is a nt a threat n nw ipl is affecting hf2 collections…

  30. Serenzy

    Yes even many trade guys & even BOI have declard dat IPL is no threat frm dis year onwards.

    Going for d movie wid 8 frnds…Hope it betters Housfull and Heyy Babyy.

  31. Fasel

    Sahil, Im calm, Im not the one posting negative reviews. I was just asking.

  32. AwesomeAkshay

    @serenzy 10 lakh in rajasthan only ,total india loss is around 1-2 cr .ab samajh me aaya dubara mat HAHA karna

  33. Serenzy

    c,om AA….talk sensibly dude

    a film doesnt lose 1-2cr bcz of a FUCKING IPL match!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    kuych bhi paka mat…..ask doga,sanket or even tashan

  34. AwesomeAkshay

    so u think it didn’t lose about 1 cr coz of ipl ? aur doga sanket aur tashan se tu puch ke bata mere pas unka number nahi hai :-)

  35. Suraj

    Good Friday is not much of a holiday in India! Christmas and Diwali always have holidays. But not Good Friday! We never got holiday on Good Friday both in school and college! It’s no ”proper” or ”’full fledged” holiday in any way.

    @Serenzy

    ”Anyways its a good opening but its d final nett dat counts…!!”

    – Indeed? The final nett counts? I thought people used to argue here that final nett is determined by content or depends on audience. director, blah blah blah – everything else except the star! Star power only shows in openings! :D Suddenly main focus on final nett now?

    -”don2 1st day was working day….Christmas collided on Sunday.
    And India is no Christian country to have big weekend holidays unlike overseas.”

    – Whatever, but at that time generally there are 4-5 holidays due to winter vacations in schools and colleges. And since it is end of the year, many working people also take leave. That time of the year is anyday more profitable for releasing movies than April. In April, schools re-open, and most universities have final exams, there are also college entrance exams. It’s not just ”threat” of IPL that can affect a film.

    -”IPL dint affect hf2 one bit…”

    – IPL did not affect HF-2 but working days or Diwali celebrations or Bhau Beej etc. did affect Ra One! :D
    IPL does have effect and so do other factors like exams etc. – since April is not a festive period like months in last quarter of the year.

    I think HF-2 has done pretty well considering its time of release. And I believe it could have done way better had it released at a more opportune time (even if its content is nothing much to boast of).

  36. Sahil19

    haha thnx for the clear up. I’ve been saying that comparing good friday is silly, some government workers get holiday but it is no all india national holiday like diwali, eid, christmas, its the same in UK also. some people are naive really.

  37. Serenzy

    @suraj

    – i swear to God i am one of dose persons for whom the “final nett”, “trending” and “BO verdict” is the ultimate joy and dont give one fuck to opening days,weekends and such trivial stuff.

    dats why i was dancing wid abandon wen Tanu Weds Manu,kahaani, PST, LSD,DevD, A wednesday where declared clean hits while
    RA.One and Blue werent.

    First know abt me to cmment on my thoughts like dese.

    Don2 is universally accepted as a Hit(not by some haters) christmas or not as RA.One is acceptd as a Failed venture(not by some fanatics).

    I have been an avid supprter of hf2 but dont know y u r feeling m opposing it.

    Last of all, i dont knw y ppl always try and compare to chide d users by satirically cmmenting on their fav stars.
    Frm ur cmments its clear u have taken on SRK’s films as a base only bcz u r replyìn to me.
    So kiddish.

    Go beyond dese fan wars and lets have a usefull debate.

  38. Suraj

    @Serenzy

    I am being ”kiddish”? Yeah right! ;)

    It was not just about you or your SRK. I commented because in past people used to trash Aamir saying, final nett does not matter or trending is no big deal, only opening matters. Or star power is measured only on basis of opening and not final nett.

    So what if Don 2 has been declared a hit? Some sources even declared Ra One as a hit!

    And I was only pointing at hypocrisy of fans, who are now taking digs at an Akshay Kumar film and bringing stuff like inflation etc., but ignored same factors in discussions of their star’s film.

    A film beating 3 year old Ghajini by a small margin despite inflation, festival release period, wider release, dubbed versions, 3D versions and whatnot – is nothing to brag about.

    You are saying that Ra One was accepted as failed venture, but most other fans defend it as a clean hit and some even call it a BB (I am not only referring to comments on this particular site).

    I hope you also apply same yardstick to yourself – ”go beyond fan wars” while discussing other stars’ films. Thank you for the free advice to me though. :)

  39. Serenzy

    @suraj

    i agree wid d ‘hypocrisy of some ppl’ part and dat final nett is of utmost importance den just a large opening.
    Eg: Agent Vinod.

    yeah,ppl and fans must bcm more sensible and realistic.

    Claiming non sensical things isnt a worthy option in d long run.

    I truly treat every film i watch wid a fair view irrespective of d starcast,director,music etc.

    Yes, i do try and go beyond dis kinda ‘mindless fan wars’ by not commenting just to ignite a user by bashing his fav.

    Waiting for a worthwhile discussn on NG on movies and ppl’s view on it since a long time.
