Talaash Has Solid Advance At Multiplexes
aman | November 28, 2012, 2:34 PM | 25 comments | 0 views


Talaash had a solid advance at multiplexes which opened advance sales over the weekend especially for a film which has has not had huge hype and heavy promotion. The advance was similar or better than some heavily promoted big films. The brisk pace of advance ticket sales at multiplexes like E Square UR, Pune and Cinemax Central, Bangalore actually beats all 2012 releases apart from Ek Tha Tiger.

Obviously the power and goodwill of brand Aamir Khan amongst the multiplex audience is the reason as this audience awaits his film like no one else’s promotion or no promotion.

The first day collections at multiplexes of Mumbai, Pune, Delhi and Bangalore are set to be huge going by early advance indications. The advance at the big single screens of Delhi is more muted which suggests opening outside metros will be lower.

The metro multiplex business will ensure a big first day and how big it becomes will depend on how business outside the metros goes through the day. Aamir Khan’s last big release Three Idiots released three years ago netted close to 13 crore and was released on a national holiday.

    I can’t say much as Advance booking in Delhi-NCR is very weak can’t say about Other cities Advance booking…!!

    TALAASH BOOKINGS IN PUNE- Its mind boggling. Trust me guys, its mind boggling! When I was booking tickets in Esquare UR, I got to know first three show are sold out! Fourth show is 50% full and only front 4-5 rows are available! That’s absolutely outstanding!

    City Pride Kothrud, 9am show is 80% full. And even here only front 6-7 rows are available :(g

    The opening at mass centers will be a worry. But anyways, even a 12-13cr opening will be satisfactory for this film which is releasing on a normal Friday, with flop music and not much hype “created”.

    # Similarly in Multiplex Advance Booking is Extraordinary. Multiplex adding more shows post response on Advance Booking :)

    Suniel Wadhwa ?@sunielwadhwa
    # Advance Booking for Talaash is very good. In Delhi – Delite Cinema Advance Sales already is more than 5.50 Lacs which is Outstanding:)

    I think corporate block bookings are helping Aamir movies more than any other hero.

    lol aamir after 3 yers …opening shoud be 20 cr @ least reelseing wid 2500 screens ..3 saal m ek mvi banai h usne …less screen presense increas demand of star easily …15-17 cr is lyk bolbachan ,cooktail,rowdy kind opening n akki comes 4-5 tyms in a year …holidy pe to ett bhi kamaal kar jaati h non holidy pe dhamaka karo ..anything less than 20 is disapoinment

  9. ank_16n

    Wud be Damn Happy if it Crosses 45/46cr Weekend Opening.

    :D

    Sadly, I will Only be Able to See it in the 2nd Week Only.

    But, Come what May, Will Never Miss an Aamir/SRK Movie on the Big Screen.

  11. ank_16n

    Serenzy–
    Just curious to know did u saw Dhobi ghat, Billu, paheli and Dhula mill gaya at big screen.
    koi aur matlab mat nikalna as I didn’t saw Joker at Theatre so wanted to ask you.!!

  12. amin786

    Wow this is fantastic without much promotion its bookings have been superb will be very happy if it does 15-20 for a non holiday release anything less than that would be disappointing for me.

    But first i await the film will be watching it FDLS just 2 days to go for the truth to emerge :)

  13. Serenzy

    Yeah Ank… Have Watched those in Theatres except DMG, Paheli.

    I End Up Watching Almost 18-20 Bollywood Movies/Year in Theatres and I Strictly Belive that Others too Should Compulsarily Watch all the “Deserving” Movies at Theatres Only espc. the Small Ones as it Helps the BO Collections of Movies like OMG!, Kahaani, VD, PST, Ishaqzaade, EV etc.

    As for SRK/Aamir, I haven’t Missed Any of their Movies in Cinemas Post2006[The Year of Major Multiplex Revolution].
    So, Haven’t Seen Paheli[2005] and for DMG, I thot SRK had 5/10Minute Role so didn’t Go.

    Baaki from KANK,Don to JTHJ and RDB,Fanaa to DG all in Theatres.

    Infact for Aamir, I go the Extra Mile and have watched JTYJN, PL, Delhi Belly,DG too
    ;)

  14. ank_16n

    Serenzy—that’s good…I also Try to go for as much movies as i can
    I have seen OSO and RNBDJ in Theatre…
    Couldn’t watched Don 2 in Theatre because had to see MI 4 so missed Don 2.

    Waise toh i see all Akshay movies at theatre from last 5 yrs..
    Except Joker , Tasveer , thank you and De Dhana dhan…..

    and have seen only Aamir’s 3 Idiots TZP and RDB at theatres….

    It becomes difficult to watch Movies of all Actors Except Akshay as I also have to watch some Hollywood movies too…!!

    Serenzy- Until you watch Talaash, please don’t visit on these internet forums much. Some members might reveal the suspense of the film. Just an advise.

    Even I am afraid of that so will watch the film in first weekend itself :D

    1. iitianWay

      one story for this revealing suspense thing…in old days when “gupt” was released ..one extra enthu guy posted climax on bulletin board that killer is kajol ..and junta got pissed off… then it started war of sort of revealing climaxes…some one told oh no it bobby who himslef is killer…some one told..where did u see this movie when i saw this in that theater it was this/that…some one wrote .. u must have seen in SS in my MP it was this killer…some told..in my city this was the killer..one told no one was killed in Gupt…it was so much fun for seeing so many climxes for one movie…

    I havent seen any srk movie since swades..fotget in the theatre..not even on tv or dvd:p

Before you folks ask..lemme tell you..my fav actor is ajay… And even his tezz i havent seen dis year…bb and sos seen… I hardly find any of big actor’s movie nowadays worth watching forget in theatre except ajay and thtas because he is my fav.. Small movies i do watch quite often… Interesting ones..

  17. Serenzy

    I request all our members not to do so. If our esteemed members do feel that that their post may spoil the suspense, but are still keen to post, please add aspoiler warning.

    I also plan to watch the film this Friday/Saturday.

  19. sanjeev-dabangg2-beats-ETT

    People think k786 won’t affect talaash but it will have a huge effect. No more than 30 crores second week for talaash no matter how good the movie is.
