Ever since the first theatrical promo of ‘Shaadi Ke Side Effects‘ went on air four months back, there has been good curiosity to check out the film. First and foremost there is good recall value due to the franchise factor. Secondly, both Farhan Akhtar and Vidya Balan carry good reputation for their off as well as on screen persona. Thirdly, the film has a good light hearted feel to it which should keep the urban audience engaged. Fourthly, Pritam’s music has caught on well too. Fifth, Balaji has marketed and promoted the film quite well. Sixth, it is a solo release of the week and there is no competition from earlier weeks either.

All of this means that the stage is set for ‘Shaadi Ke Side Effects‘ to make merry, provided second time director Saket Chowdhary has made an entertaining film, just as was the case with his debut flick ‘Pyaar Ke Side Effects’. Of course the film has its target audience at multiplexes but that should be good enough for this Balaji-PNC flick to earn some good moolah as even at single screens it would have decent visibility.
The film should take an opening in the upwards of 50% and then show growth over the weekend on the basis of word of mouth. If the film is well made and in the process liked by the audience, ‘Shaadi Ke Side Effects‘ can expect a bountiful at the box office as it has a lot going in its favor. Continue reading
Dhoom 3 is having a dream run at the box office. Considering that Yashraj are the Producer as well as Distributor of the movie, profit estimation exercise would be interesting. The low key promotion has kept the overall costs low considering the grandness of the movie.
Production Budget ———- 80 cr.
Print and Advertising ——- 20 cr. Continue reading
1 JAN 2013 to 31 DEC 2013 (AS PE RELEASING DATE)
Welcome to Bollywood Boxoffice 2013. The year brought a lot of twists and suspenses in the form of Blockbusters and Flop Masters that gave a slight different and intresting posture to Star ranking at Boxoffice 2013. Lets see what is new this year compared to the previous few years. Last years no.1 stars Akshay Kumar and Salman Khan are absent from the list while the former had a rough patch the later seemed to be just like a sleeping lion ready to roar in 2014. However the No.1 spot this year is still a tangle of vines and it would be intresting to see that who would make his way through it, the most expected one Ranbir just missed the bull eye with failure of Besharam but Shahrukh hopes are still alive to become No.1 at yearly Bo after 9 years of timeframe which might get even more extended if Aamir’s Dhoom realy does some extraordinary Dhoom. Hrithik became the another strong contentender to do it after 2006 would get 3rd spot though. What else ??? John Abraham fisrt time in his career has made it to Top 5 with Hits like Race, Shoot Out and a success as MC. Anil Kapoor played quality with onlt Hits and no flop while Farhan Akhtar just smashed it to prove his ability as a solo-star.
After a massive last year Ajay Devgn had to go through rough patch, Emran Hashmi too struggled. Luckily, Vivek oberoi made it to top 10 though its Grand Masti for him but thanks to Rajesh Roshan. Well, Abhishek Bachchan should get his share of D3. Last but surely not be the least the new talents Aditya Roy Kapoor and Sushant Singh Rajput who just have a smashing year. With Blockbusters and hits they have shown how hard they can hit but how consistently is yet to be seen.
See how it goes like

Dhoom 3 (Hindi) is challenging for the opening day record despite releasing on a non holiday. Only two films have got to 30 crore nett on day one and they are Ek The Tiger and Chennai express. Krissh 3 managed a 31 crore nett on its fourth day but all these figures were recorded on national holidays be it Independence Day, Eid or Diwali.
The film can top the 30 crore nett mark or stay below a by a couple od crore depending how the evening shapes. There will be a drop at some multiplexes in cities where it is cold and the last show at single screens will be lower as is always the case in December in parts of UP, Haryana and Punjab.
It is a bit irrelevant whether the record comes or not as just to be up there with films which broke records on holidays is outstanding. No film has yet crossed 20 crore nett on a non holiday and Dhoom 3 is on target for 30 crore nett. Factoring in the holiday factor, the growth in ticket rates and growth in screen counts it is probably the biggest opening in recent times.
The advance bookings for one of the year’s biggest releases – Dhoom 3 has already begun and kicked off to a bombastic start. Going by the early trends, there is little doubt that the year will not end with a Dhoom! The film’s advance booking has got a massive response unanimously.

Circuit-wise, the advance booking results have been the best in Delhi and Mumbai with both cities already seeing a nearly 85% occupancies on its first day. In Pune, the advance booking reports stand in the range between 70% to 75%. Continue reading

Krrish 3 has gone the Dabangg 2 way as collections have come down rapidly after the holiday period. It was a similar story with Dabangg 2 when its collections came down fast after the Christmas and New Year period was over.
Like Dabangg 2, Krrish 3 has proved to be a blockbuster due to the initial and holiday period but the film has not really gone on to consolidate after the holiday period. The film looked a 200 crore nett grosser after the first 5-6 days but each week the expectations have come down as collections dropped fast.
The film has grossed just a little under 174 crore nett in three weeks and the fourth week saw very limited business and the film will add just about 2-3 crore nett more taking the final total 177 crore nett. Continue reading
Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram Leela is nearing the 100 crore nett mark with collections of 89 crore nett approx in ten days. The second weekend collected around 15 crore nett with a huge 7.5 crore nett coming in Mumbai circuit. The film was ahead of Gori Tere Pyaar Mein in all circuits across India and ahead of Singh Saab The Great In Mumbai, West Bengal and South. The film was taken off screens in UP on Friday due to a ban though now it has started to be screened again.
The film will hit the 100 crore nett mark in its third weekend and should probably go and finish in the 105-110 crore nett range and although the profits may not be huge due to the high buddget it is still a huge number since the director has many big flops only one major hit which had the presence of Shahrukh Khan and the male lead has had no major hit before.
It will be the fifth 100 crore nett grosser of the year after Chennai Express, Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani, Krrish 3 and Bhaag Milkha Bhaag.
