42 Crore Weekend For Housefull 2 – BOI

Monday 9th April 2012 12.00 IST
Boxofficeindia.Com Trade Network

Housefull 2 has collected around 42 crore nett over its first weekend. The approx breakdown for the weekend is 13.25 crore nett on Friday, 12.75 crore nett on Saturday and 16 crore nett on Sunday. The collections have been been affected by IPL matches and regional films which makes the 42 crore figure even more impressive.

On Friday Maharashtra region was hit by IPL and then on Saturday the West Bengal and Mysore region which always shows Saturday growth was hit as collections came in lower in both circuits.

The box office is being hit depending on what team plays, if its a Mumbai match then that circuit gets hit and if its Kolkata match then that circuit drops.

In Punjab the collections took a huge hit due to a Punjabi film as the weekend came out just 3.40 crore nett approx in the circuit. Despite the IPL and regional film factors against the film, it has still emerged with a very good weekend and by far the biggest for an Akshay Kumar starrer beating the 36.50 crore nett figure of Tees Maar Khan.

    42-43 cr it will be BY Boi and 45-46 by Komal and Taran… Now thats HUGEEE

    No Eid,Diwali,Xmas, 26 jan or 4-5 day wknd

    No katrina kaif item number

    5 oppositions

    1. Titanic 3d Biggest hollywood film on 400 prints

    2. IPL 2 matches on each day with jam packed crowds and high interest level

    3.Mirza biggest punjabi film with record collections

    4.Racha another regional film which has broken records

    5. CRITICS &EXAMS DETRACTORS:)

    Lets suppose at a mininum the film lost 2/2.5 cr each day thats makes a total loss of 6/8 cr

    So had it been a normal release it wud have done 50 cr+ which no april release has ever done but as i said clashing with IPL and these other hurdles was a risk but thankfully the risk has paid off, 42 or 45 whatever the final wknd maybe there is no doubt its a HUGE wknd

    Now lets hope monday sustains well as there is a Mumbai match tonight…if HF2 manages 6 cr today then with 2 open wks its set for a good run…

    i hope for akshays sake that H2 does more than 150crs, but to say that IPL dents the collection of movies is baseless, Imran Hashmi proved this last year when IPL was still relatively exciting, this year even the tv ratings of IPL are poor, and to say IPL has packed houses is a lie, when i saw the match on tv a couple of days back there was an extremely poor crowd gathered in the stadium, IPL can run 1 more season max because it’s all downhill from here.

  6. Tashan said:

    @alpha thanks and i hope joker surprises in a good way @champ lol i am calling it huge then why wud i crib? offcourse i am happy for Ak and dnt worry monday is going good so far…and i will watch it tonite

  7. Tashan said:

    @alligator Ipl dents big budget films not smaller films i know jannat was a hit but it wasnt a huge grosser it did less than tashan…try to get the point

  8. Serenzy said:

    @tashan

    Me,sanket,fenil,rj,yakuza,tango,doga,wallD,milind and of coz all d akki fans on ng loved it.

    taran Tweet…..

    Monday is akin to an exam for all films. Either the film crashes, or sustains. #Housefull2 is sustaining well.

  10. Alfa.one said:

    @tashan – U hv disappointed me. Why did u not watch the film till now? I thought u have already seen it. GO BRO GO……….. you will love it. It will bring u smile and I am sure u will like Akki more than ever !

  11. Sahil19 said:

    happy enough with the result, the main thing is akki is back. @alligator, dude You can’t compare a small budget film like Jannat which just required 20 crs to get a superhit status to a higher cost film. housefull had to do huge to get a hit status unlike jannat.

  12. Alfa.one said:

    @tashan – Crowd was going wild during the trailer of RR which is rare thing in mplex in Mumbai. Though there were other trailers also but response to RR was different, just fantastic. As it is it was good on TV but in theater just mind boggling with the crowd after it. Go man go…. watch it nowwwwwww !

  13. AwesomeAkshay said:

    congo for HF2 but i am scared for Rowdy Rathore . Its the real test for akki , hope RR does well and joker will be a hit dont worry . PRAY FOR RowdyRathore

  14. Alfa.one said:

    @tashan – The story of hb was better than hf2 but if u want to have entertainment and enjoy akki then this is the best from all the previous movies of sajid khan (hb and hf). I must add here for u that it is much better than the blockbusters of 2011 !

  15. Kunal said:

    @aligator

    which ipl have u been watching? till now all the matches have had 95-100% occupancy… even yesterday afternoon match was full in jaipur..even eden garden was full with 75000 plus occupancy… nd tv rating have nt come till nw fr ths year… so what r u talking about do u even know urself??

  16. deadmanwalking said:

    Good number but below the expectation .All people and trade expect at least 45cr but the film collect only 42cr but its still good and for me the opening can go to the hell the final result is what we should looking for it so hope for the best

  17. Action said:

    Great.
    Har raat ke baad subah hoti hai,AKKI ka bhi subah aa gaya.Aasha karta hu ki aur15 saal tak raat ho hi nahi.
    RR-Akki will set the box office on fire I m sure.
    I will have a mini party for myself to celebrate Akki’s comeback.

    • Jasp the Wasp said:

      Then all Akki fans would be drunk as they were the ones saying “anything less than 45 cr would be not so good” :D

      But yes, 42 cr is a very good number on its own. The presence of regional films came as a surprise to me, so good to know that despite regional biggies, HF2 still managed a great total.

  18. Rockyy said:

    Yesterday i predicted 42 cr weekend atleast n 44 cr at max… So figures r out n my prediction is sureshot true… Mvie wnt cross 100 crs..

  19. Dino said:

    I predicted 42 crore yesterday and 42 it is. Assuming average of 5 crore for remaining week it should have 62 crore first week atleast. With such positive WOM I bet it will cross 100 crore.

  20. Fasel said:

    LOL at what Jasp said. He is right about fans saying “anything less than 45 would be not so good”.

    But I must applaud the commendable weekend HF2 has put up, you must acknowledge where credit is due.

  21. Serenzy said:

    -Is the weekend 42 or 43cr??

    @awesomeakki
    RR will be huge, no doubt…Its Joker u need to pray for bcz dats a Disaster.
    ..

    ..

    @Sahil
    i think v shudnt rest as yet…No doubt akki is bak and has got great goodwill but only weekend is over and nobody gives a damn.
    Its d Final Nett dat counts.
    ..

    @alfa.One
    nice to read ur comments…U frm mumbai??

    @tashan
    hf2 is bettr den hb and same as hf for me.

    But hf2 is surely bettr den ty,desi boyz,ra1,bg,ready,golmaal3,double dhamaal,partner,nl,ypd,tmk,oso,golmaal returns,rascals etc.

  22. AwesomeAkshay said:

    @serenzy i can gurantee you joker won’t be a disaster, it will be a hit atleast. There are huge expectations from RR hope it lives upto it and weekend of HF2 is 43.5

  23. Superstar SAM said:

    Its too early to predict abt joker.. But looking @ past record of shirish it wl be big surprise even it is avg with huge budget & if it clash with raaz 3 then it wl surely disaster…
    RR wil surely big, hw much big time wil tell…

    Watched HF2 – The best ever comedy film i have seen from the time i was born. Its better than the best. All i can say is wht Pasta would say – I am jooooookingggg…

    On serious note – Film was very good and for me pasta and john are the ones who stole the show. Some funny moments were so hillarious that i couldn’t stop laughing. Climax was the weakest point but it was all expected. Should give credit to Sajid for giving equivalent role for both john and Aksay and i was impressed with many different expressions he (john) made. It was Akki’s best film after ddd. I loved his act in HF2.

    last but not the least – I didn’t had any faith or respect for Sajid after HF though i liked his Hey baby but after HF2 i would say he understands audience and really connects with them.

    Ritesh, boman, rishi and randhir were all good as well.

    It should easily cross 100cr and i wish best of luck to Akki, sajid and john for their future projects.

  26. Serenzy said:

    @fs

    my opinions r d same as urs…
    Even johnny,mithun,ritesh,rishi wer nice.

    Akki was good as expectd but john was total suprise package.

    Where wud u place hf2 in comparison to ready,g3???

    Glad to know u too liked it…Means ppl on ng r generally liking hf2 a lot…Wom is positive…Finally, a hit for akki aftr 2 long years.

  27. Serenzy said:

    A looong list of ‘neutral’ ppl have likd hf2 and hardly anyone has bashed it(except worthless reviewrs and idiots like Gan*u Jaju)…

    Where r d haters now??

  28. lamps01 said:

    100 crores are given but ques is how much more than that….Films like Ready and Golmal 3 have trended very well and collected more that 30 crores in second week…Will housefull 2 do the same…Housefull 2 is a very solid product and akki desrves a 125 cr movie….

  29. Serenzy said:

    @all and espc. Akki fans/fanatics

    “DON-2 1st WEEKEND WAS 47cr(incl. reg) AND FROM THERE IT WENT TO 110cr LIFETIME”
    THAT’S A TRENDING SCORE OF 2.35

    NOW, HOUSEFULL-2 LIKE DON-2 IS A BRAND,COMING AFTR MANY CRAP AKKI MOVIES AND STILL IT HAS DONE 42cr WHICH IS GOOD…NOW IF IT TRENDS LIKE DON2 IT WILL REACH 98cr…

    LIKE DON2, HF2 ALSO HAS OPEN WEEKS AND GOOD WOM…FROM HERE IT NEEDS TO CROSS 90+ BUT ITS INTERESTING TO C WETHR IT CAN CROSS SINGHAM,GOLMAAL3,RAJNEETI AND THAN DON2 ITSELF”

  30. fearlesssoul said:

    @serezy – ready second half was good, golmal 3 was total laugh riot except last 40 mins of the film where they went overboard. HF2 was hillarious in parts and good overall except climax. So i will put HF2 above ready and equal or below golmal3

  31. lamps01 said:

    First of all Don2 collections are 106 not 110…and trending is 2.25 acc to which HF2 needs 94 cr which should be a cakewalk…..(Small details matter)…I guess Hf2 is a better liked movie than Don2…may be critics reviews were better for DOn2 but the buisness of Don2 was driven mainly by Multiplexes whereas Hf2 is being liked both by Single screens as well as Multiplexes….
    Ready had a trending of 2.8 from 42 cr to 121 crs and G3 had trending of 3.1 from 35 cr to 107….So we are expecting similar figures from Hf2…which should take it to 110 crs if trends at around 2.60……..

  32. Serenzy said:

    @lamp

    u seem new here..
    Don2 nett was 110cr incl. Regional as ra1 was 118cr.

    Don2 1st weeknd was 47cr incl reg and trending was
    2.35(small details matter :P )

    hf2 at 42cr shud do abt 95-100cr.

    Don2 was a Success whereas ra.One was a failure.

  33. lamps01 said:

    yes im a new member….whatever…but i expect a better trending for Hf2….it is being loved by SS and generally movies doing well at SS have more legs….like BG ,AP and Dabanng….

  34. shubham07 said:

    time for celebration…
    akki will surely enter in the 100 crores club…..
    btw monday is about 7.25 nett (aprox)………….

    Aeeeeeee…………..Jay bhadrakaali……….

    @serenzy – Yes I am from Mumbai. No, I am not salman fan, for that matter I am no one’s fan but like them as characters in good movies. Like, I like salman in movies like Garv, Wanted etc. Off late because of few fanatics here on NG who praise salaman as their GOD and abuse others stars, forced me to dislike him in addition to the movies like Ready and Bodyguard which were nothing more than craps !
