Q. Can Jab Tak Hai Jaan beat all the records overseas?

A. It’s the biggest release ever in Overseas of around 600 screens so opening records should be broken. Lifetime only time can tell.

Q. How many screens will Jab Tak Hai Jaan And Son Of Sardaar Release On?

A. Its looking 2600 screens for Jab Tab Hai Jaan and 1500 for Son Of Sardaar. Final counts are only known on release day but it will be in these ranges

Q. There are so many single screens in India, maybe over 5000 so why is there a big deal about Son Of Sardar and Jab Tak Hai Jaan screen fight because both films can have 1000 multiplex screens and 2000 single screens and and that would be 3000 screens each which is more than 99% of film releases?
A. It does not work that way. There are not 5000 single screens for Hindi films. India has a lot more than 5000 screens but a lot of these are in South where Hindi films don’t release. Basically there are 1700-1800 odd single screens for Hindi films that collect well and its a must for a big film to release on these theatres, if not all of them then at least a big chunk of them. You can easily release on screens but what’s the point of releasing on screens which can’t collect well so the fight is for the important single screens which are limited and makes it tough when 2 big films release together.

Q. How would you put the releases of the last month or so like OMG, English Vinglish, Student Of The Year and 1920 in order of success in India?
A. OMG! Oh My God is clear leader. Then 1920 (if it manages a 11-12 cr share which look it looks like doing at the moment) then Student Of The Year and then English Vinglish.

    So, it seems conformed now, seems one sided battle now considering the fact that SOS will be getting much lesser single screens where it can work more.
    Any ways, best of luck to both JTHJ and SOS.

  2. iitianWay

    why are u giving every best to JTHJ …kuch to exclusive sos ke liye “chhod” do

  3. Khan.1

    Son of dukandaar will flop badly….

  4. rockie_EK THA TIGER

    SOS 1500
    Jthj 2600

    So Jthj is having almost 75% more screen space than SOS.
    That’s a huge margin. That too booked for 2 weeks so WOM will not change number of screens for SOS.

    Only saving grace for SOS is holiday period and extended first week.

  5. Khan.1

    If Barfi can do good business with 1300 screes and no holiday than 1500 is enuff for SOS to do 90-100 cr

    1. rockie_EK THA TIGER

      Barfi did not have to compete with any other movie.

      1300 screens – no competition
      1500 screens – competition from Jthj and then Talaash / K786

      But still if WOM is extraordinary then yes it can do 100cr. But if it would have got a better screen space even with avg WOM it would have touched 100.

    2. Dhamaka

      by this logic i think 2600 are enough for jthj to do 180 crore business

    JTHJ’s shows will be too less at multiplexes than what other biggies had in past. Even Agneepath was hit by its lomg length, but there was no competition for the film and hence it managed decent number of shows. But JTHJ will manage only 50-60% of shows of what ETT, Don2, Ra.One, Bodyguard had got at multiplexes. This will be affecting the collections.

    SOS, on other hand will be proportionately affected and will not manage what Bol Bachchan managed at multiplexes.

    RETT
    Two things
    – barfi had competiton with Raaz 3, Heroine(due to which it lost screens), English vinglish, Omg. And the thing is all the movies except heroine collected good and affected barfi’s collectn

    – the screens for SOS is more than barfi and it is also releasing during Diwali period.

    At least for single screen, it’s not only about number of screens but quality of screen also matters. Now since, YRF have already booked majority of better quality screens, SOS will only get relatively inferior screens.

    HERE IS THE FILM FEDERATION STATEWISE LIST

    http://www.filmfed.org/singlescreen.html

    Any doubts still abt bastards of india? srk’s G asslickers are just trying to underplay it becoz they suspect a public backlash.

    the fact is YRF-SRK deliberately planned an ‘uneven’ release blocking SOS even in the areas where it was stronger.

    jthj wil rock….baadshah se panga loge to yahi hoga na…
    SON OF DUKAANDAR ko koi DUKAAN hi nhi mila ki apna saaman(salman spcl apprnc) baich sake…lol

  11. danish

    @anganwadi-dropout-at-16 – read carefully. he is talking abt prime screenswhich is wat we are all talking abt. yashraj has blocked prime screens even at the risk of losses to themselves. i will simplify it for u point by point as u r 16.

    1. there are 11000-12000 screens.

    2. boi says 5000 to make it look like a genuine paucity of screens to give YRF-SRK benefit of doubt.

    3. wat has happened is that YRF-SRK have let go off their share of non prime screens to block SOS’s share of prime screens.

    4. the above was not required. for example no film needs to play in 6 theaters in dadar, ignoring sin SS. ITS A DIRTY DESIGN. south delhi students can understand this very easily. rest take time.

  12. Khan.1

    Lol over smart danish BOI never said there are 5000 screens. They clearly said a lot more than 5000.

  13. danish

    khan sahab dhyaan se padho. they are saying good screens are just 1700-1800 which is not the truth. yrf has deliberately booked prime screens (as opposed to good screens) and planned an uneven release.

    the actual number od screens is 11000-12000. but they want to make it look like there is a paucity of good screens. and yashraj had no way but to block sos.

    also many single screen play two shows each of both films in the case of a simultaneous releases. that aspect is being totally ignored by everyone.

    its a deliberate, malicious, vicious sabotage of a film of a very non controversial actor like ajay devgan. iska jawaab srg ko public hi de sakti hai.

  14. Khan.1

    Ua taking there lines and adding ua own masala to it. Twisting things is a hobby huh?
    They are very much closed to truth. They have said that there are only 1700 ss which collect big which is pretty much true.
