Dabangg 2 First Day Business-BOI
Aditya007 | December 22, 2012, 12:09 PM | 42 comments | 2 views


Dabangg 2 has collected 19.50 crore nett approx on day one as per early estimates. It is the highest non holiday opening day beating the 14.75 crore nett of Don 2 released in the same period last year but it has also released on 600-700 more screens than that film. As has been seen in the last two years it is really tough to collect really big at multiplexes without a national holiday and the trend continued with Dabangg 2. There is just not enough of a multiplex audience on a working day to pack out 25 or 30 shows daily at a multiplex. Some shows go house full but odd timing shows have very low occupancies. The first day is still fantastic and there should be growth on Saturday and Sunday as huge number of shows multiplexes give the film potential to get much higher collections as long as the public takes to it.

    Dabangg 2 Has Excellent Opening

    Saturday 8th December 2012 09.00 IST

    Boxofficeindia.Com Trade Network

    Dabangg 2 had an excellent opening and will have a strong first day collection. The occupancies were not that high at multiplexes for the day due to the huge number of shows as business got shared amongst the shows. The single screens were extraordinary with collections near record levels. The film should easily set a new record for weekend.

    yr screen dekho n best relese tym h skool m to almost holidy strt ho gye h n exam almost over …evening shows slow casue of wom

    1. sanjeev-dabangg2-beats-ETT

      big release size toh K786 ka bhi tha with a potential to beat RR. kya hua?
      Big release size toh Don 2 ka bhi tha last christmas..usne kyon si record break kiya and by how much?

  5. sanjeev-dabangg2-beats-ETT

    Beat all holiday n non holiday releases except agneepath which was a holiday release. Way to go sallu.
    now 60 crores weekend is guaranteed.
    K786 is 4 days, Talaash in 5 days and JTHJ is 6 days. Question is how many days for ETT and three idiots?

  6. RJ

    Should ve crossed 20 but i think people are taking it easy… You will see a huge turnout on Sunday and any holiday… A number that will surprise many claiming it has bad wom… Cos i believe as a general entertainment hungry audience will love it… Nothing in it to dislike honestly… So bad wom is out of the question Vikram be-taal! This is definitely making 200+

    Dabangg 2 has collected 19.50 crore nett approx on day one as per early estimates. It is the highest non holiday opening day beating the 14.75 crore nett of Don 2 released in the same period last year but it has also released on 600-700 more screens than that film.

    Ab toh had ho gayi yaar……poori duniya jaanti hai ki rowdy rathor biggest non holiday opener thhi….boi ne apne khud ke diye hue figure se fisalte hue rowdy rathor ke collection ko 15cr se 14.47cr kar diye aur don2 ke 14.40cr se 14.75cr kar diye…yaha tak ki recently v boi ne don2 ke 14.40cr figure dikhaye thhe ab ye 14.75cr kaise hui ab koi mujhe bataye.

    Ab sab log boi ko follow karna chhoro aur taran adarsh ko follow karo kyunki ye banda apne words,collections aur verdicts kabhi change nahi karta….aur boi hamesha apne words,collection aur verdicts change karta rahta hai.

  8. filmycrazy

    as per as dabangg2 concerned BOI commentry totally sucks.I dont understand why they were so pumping and over redicting its collection.2-3 crore deviation is considerable but 6-10 crore deviation in one day is shocking. not only this before waiting its first week collection they are predicting it may cross 3idiot second week collection.it is very bad erformance by no.1 boxoffice site.their commentry also sucked in the case of jthj by early superhit verdict.if in this way they comments people will not trust them. Any way 19.5 crore in working day is excellent.Salman again showed that he is current no.1.

  9. filmycrazy

    Now they are giving excuse of north indias multiplex collection.but affect of multiplex collection in north india can reduce only 1-2 crore from its total all india collection.actually non holiday/holiday is big factor.but why BOI forgot this factor i dont understand.they should wait before any verdict.if they do in this way then there will be no difference between BOI and boxoffice capsule.

  10. jealous hater of srk

    so i was bang on my prediction abt film its total paisa vasool film it gives wat it promises entertainment bt no story bt far far far better than ETT

  11. ank_16n

    Salman the biggest superstar in Bollywood ever……
    Salman craze is just unprecedented …..
    He is a phenomenon …..

    and still just 19 cr that to a Sequel of Dabang(the craze)
    only 4 cr Higher than Rowdy Rathore a non-Sequel released 6 months back with less ticket rates than now with 2600 Screens as compared to 3500 screens of D2..

    Yes this is the so-called Phenomenon ..!!

    1. sanjeev-dabangg2-beats-ETT

      It is for us. May be not for you. (4 crores is only: it’s 50% of what your megastar’s K786 collected in first day)
      Still it collected 30% more than Rowdy Rathore. By how much percent did RR beat the previous best non holiday release Don2? (wait wait wait wait wait…BOI has just said that RR didn’t even break don 2’s opening day record)

      I hope you are expecting 40 crores day one from your megastar Akki next year. Lets see what happens in February.

    2. sanjeev-dabangg2-beats-ETT

      Plz don’t forget that if 5 crores is removed from Dabangg 2, it will become RR, but if 5 crores is removed from K786, khiladi will become JOKER.
      LMFAO

      1. ank_16n

        urself doing if and buts and saying we Akki fans do it……
        hahahaha
        keep doing if and buts :)

  12. TopShot_Now Its Dabangg2

    Funny to see akki fans commenting bad here.. how can some fans b so pathetic? They went hyper when rr did 14+ cr… went gaga over akki’s stardom… n they think 20cr non holiday is less… wat a pitty…
    on the topic.. my very optimistic prediction was 25cr but 20cr is also fabulous… go dabangg…

  13. TopShot_Now Its Dabangg2

    Well said sanjeev… ank do u remember by hw big margine rr broke ready’s opening day record which was released 12 months earlier n was not masala genre???
    Before commenting bad about dabangg2 collection try to remember dat…

    1. ank_16n

      see what bad i have said did i said opening is poor….
      did i said Salman is not a superstar …..

      I just said u guys saying he has craze which no-one else have….which is not right as any star with Holiday cud give huge opening(Record Breaking)

      If he was such an phenomenon than why not Achieve 25 cr non-Holiday.
      I know that opening is huge huge but this 19 cr proves that he is not a phenomenon …..but a Superstar who is on par with other or may be little bit ahead of other stars that’s it..!!

      but i suppose its now the tendency of salman fans just to Bash other without understanding others point of view……
      If one says Salman is phenomenon that u guys are happy while if some one says he is on par or little ahead of other Actors than u guys start bashing others….

      so there is no point of Arguing with u :)

      1. TopShot_Now Its Dabangg2

        Dude salman did not just break records on holiday but he broke records on non-holiday as well ready and Dabangg 2….
        And yes Salman is head and shoulders above ALL other actors currently.(in this decade/last 3-4 years) Everyone knows and would second that. Only few blind fans like you would deny that and try to put akki in same league with Salman(in this decade). Hell! even one of u claimed akki is ‘slightly’ ahead in this decade than salman. (I will not take his name here, but u must know who I am talking about!) Now thats what you call “beyond arguments” or “Insane” as we call it.

      2. TopShot_Now Its Dabangg2

        And by following ur comments since last 6-7 months I observed that u r such biased fan when it comes to box office collections that even if Dabangg2 had taken 25 cr openiong you would have asked why could it not make 31+ crore if salamn is such big star and bla bla bla…. I am sure of it… (Though other than that I think you r good guy and I like your comments on other general discussion threads)

    2. ank_16n

      u really need to understand if i wanted to bash salman and his movies then i wud have posted some bad reviews of D2 but i suppose every body can’t be a Danish and others.

      Just because i believe that Salman is not a phenomenon but is on par or little ahead of other Actors that u guys are bashing..!!

      1. TopShot_Now Its Dabangg2

        I don’t remember Danish posting any bad reviews from outside sources. That’s Wall-D’s specialty.

        And tell me one thing- By ur logic-
        If Dabangg2 not getting 25cr opening as per our very optimistic hopes (but still breaking record by distance.) makes him ‘not-a-phenomenon’ THEN did K786 not getting 50cr opening weekend as per your hope (and getting lowest weekend this year for big film) makes him smaller star than even Ajay , Ranbir and Hashmi????

    19.5 is huge but still underwhelming because of the hype that was created by media over past two days on the advance booking.

    The point to be noted is Dabangg 2 first day collection on a non- holiday is greater than Akshay biggest single day collection on his first sunday.

    frankly speaking i didnot witness that much pre occupancy for Dabangg 2 in bookmyshow when compared to ETT but still BOI was unnecessarily hyping the movie.

  15. sanket porwal

    So Salman hasn’t let me down this time. I predicted 19.5 in my prediction thread, and it has done exactly that :)

    19.5cr is outstanding!

  16. FS

    I had already written in one of my previous comments tht media is hyping this film so much tht even if it collects 20C which is HUGE for non holiday will make it sound underwhelming n thts what is happenning right nw… Have u observed taran n komal retweeting tweets of fans who liked D2 which is an indication tht they are being paid to hype it as much as they can…

    Though i n few others i knw didnt liked it but many others have liked it n enjoyed it… Wom is positive in a way but sat numbers will give exact trend…

  17. Tippu Sultan

    Considering there is no opposition Dabaang 2 has already flopped by failing in its opening day. Business started falling at multiplexes and as at the time of this posting, business has seen significant drops in other theatres.This will be the biggest disappointment for Sallu fans ever!

  18. dr.nick

    dabangg2 will reach 100cr in 5-6 days which is same as ETT.so it can surpass ETT and close to 190cr which is huge

  19. akash

    jst back frm dabangg 2 and surprisingly i liked the mvi also i completely agree with RJ as there wasn’t anything to dislike but what was even more surprising was the ss in kolkata where i saw it was 50% full 4 evening show.

  20. assmasala

    a much less audience friendly film don 2 made around 15 cr with screens as much as 600 screens less than dabanng2 is a shame for D2 , with it being the most hyped film of the year!!

    i guess ETT wudnt have touched even 14 cr if released on a non holiday..

    there goes down the drain all the calculations of being salman the 1-10 of stars of 2012..

    JTJH .. with much less hype, prints and also with comepetition did 14 cr which is much bigger than any non masala film everr!!

    Shah still ruless!!

    Btw saturday has been pathetic for Dabangg 2

    the figures are less than atleast 30-40% than friday!!

  21. akash

    I think plex audience hasn’t like the film. D2 is going Don 2 way…where inspite of being a better film don2 did less business than ra1 .Same thing is going to happen with dabangg 2 . I personally feel Dabangg 2 is way better than ETT but still receiving underwhelming response compare to ETT….aajkal audience ko kya pasand ata hai kuch pata nahin lagta.

  22. Roy

    A Big LOL at delusions that SRK fans suffer from. But then they need to be delusional to like him

    “JTJH .. with much less hype, prints and also with comepetition did 14 cr which is much bigger than any non masala film everr!!

    Shah still ruless!!”

    Abhi kis duniya mein 12.5 cr becomes 14 cr …? haha. And Shah rules what? if so his toilet is his throne then.

      bachche phir bhi seekh jaate hain :)

      1. TopShot_Now Its Dabangg2

        @Roy…. yaar jiska naam assmasala hai usko tu kaise seriously le sakta hai… ;) He hasn’t come out of disappointment of SRK’s recent under performances… So plz be gentle on him… :D

  23. Serenzy

    Rowdy Rathor[Why is the 'E' Missing?],

    “Don2 ke 14.40cr figure dikhaye the.. Ab ye 14.75cr kaise hui ab koi mujhe bataye”

    I Think BOI is Suddenly Talking abt Don2’s First Day of 14.75 which Includes Regional Release[Tamil/Telugu].

    ……

    “D2 is going Don 2
    way where inspite of being a Better Film, Don2 did less
    business than RA.One
    Same thing is going to happen with dabangg 2″

    Good Point Akash. :)

    Let’s See What Happens!

  24. Rowdyraj

    Saw Dabaang2…….kamal karte ho Pandeyji….chutia si story…boring songs…kuch khas one liner bhi nehin…direction ka pata nehin….action maja nehin ayan…lekin aap cha gaye. first half was bit slow…just routine masala……10 minutes prior to interval was dhansu…post interval till climax it was too good. Climax though felt should have been bit better…mainly the fight sequence…felt like they were in a hurry to complete the movie….songs were the weakest here….baring favicol…man..kareena was looking damn hot…could not stop myself from joining the crowd to dance during this song…though my GF took me for a nice class after that. .. :) over all i like it for Salman…way better then the chutiatic ETT…dabang1 was better no comparison whats ever….But guys watch it for Salman….he is in roaring form….i dont mind if they come up with dabang3….4…5..till the time Salman is in this kind of form….

    Was not Rwody Rathore biggest Non holiday opener ??

    Rowdy Rathore First Day Business

    Saturday 2nd June 2012 11.00 IST
    Boxofficeindia.Com Trade Network

    Rowdy Rathore has collected around 14.50 crore nett on its first day as per early estimates. The film recorded phenomenal collections in many circuits but under performed in Delhi city and Punjab especially for an Akshay Kumar film.

    It is the biggest non holiday opening of all time and amongst the top 5 to 6 opening days of all time. Agneepath and Bodyguard lead by a distance with Rowdy Rathore collecting in the same range as films like Don 2, Ra.One and Dabangg.

    It also the highest opening day for an Akshay Kumar starrer beating housefull 2 by around 1.50 crore nett.

    The distributor share on day one is easily the third biggest ever on day one due to the extraordinary business in single screens. At some centres the share on day one was as much as the whole week share of films like Don 2 and Ra.One.

  26. wall-D

    As srk lover, they r just doing their duty. DON2 business from south versions is also included. But, i think don2 did total 3 cr lifetime from south versions. Then, how come they reach at 14.75 is surprising.

  27. sanjeev-dabangg2-beats-ETT

    Just watched dabangg 2 and talaash (talaash with the same ticket of dabangg 2 that cost me 7.5 dollars). I don’t know why the ticket was cheaper for d2… Even the ticket of dabangg 2 years ago was 8 dollars. Maybe Christmas sale?
    I looked at the shows for d2 online and saw that they were also playing talaash and JTHJ (Jthj still playing. I was surprised) while k786 was already out of the theatre.
    Only 10 people to watch d2. Is it a big flop in US?
    In the interval I went to check how many people were watching jthj n talaash. Jthj was not playing cuz no one was there to watch it. 6 people were watching talaash (impressive for talaash as it is almost a month old)
    Then after finishing d2 I went to see talaash (ha to wait for 20 mins). This time there were 12 people watching talaash. ( more than d2. For a while I was ashamed as a salman fan) trailer of d2 was shown right before talaash started. One lady in the back said, “acting kaab sikega” I felt like standing up and giving a slap to her.

  28. sanjeev-dabangg2-beats-ETT

    Talaash. What a movie yaar. Easily best movie of the year for me. Even ahead of ishaqzade, omg, Vicky donor and kahaani. 4.5 stars could have been 5 if there were no songs.
    What was wrong with talaash? Why people didn’t like it? I don’t understand. I m very surprised that it didn’t even cross 100 crores.
    It has made me believe that the script of dhoom 3 could be good

  29. sanjeev-dabangg2-beats-ETT

    Dabangg 2 was a pure masala entertainer. Salman Show all the way. one notch higher than dabange.. lots of humor in the movie…10 people present in the theater were constantly laughing.
    script deserves not more than 1 star.
    All performances are superb. 4.5 stars for performances of all characters.
    Songs were awesome but looked like they were forced into the movie. The small song that salman performed in baccha bhai’s party was brilliant.
    Overall movie I will give 3 stars.
    If u want good story in movies don’t even dare to watch it. But if u want to be entertained for 2 hours it is a very good film for you.
    This movie will work huge in single screens but it has nothing to offer to multiplex audience. ( what ever it collects in multiplexes will be only due to the star power of salman khan)
