  • Boxoffice Collection Update
    I.One | August 30, 2014, 9:07 PM | one comment | 0 views

    Raja Natwarlal had poor collections on day one as it collected around 5 crore nett on day one. Mumbai circuit was a bit better as Gujarat and Saurashtra fared better and by far the best collections across India. It was a holiday in Maharashtra and Gujarat and that helped Mumbai circuit compared to rest of India but even with holiday Mumbai can not be called good.

    The rest of the country was poor with North and Central recording dull collections and also not showing that major jump in the evening shows which was needed.




  • Box Office Prediction : ‘Shaadi Ke Side Effects’ Will Woo Multiplexes
    I.One | February 27, 2014, 2:49 PM | one comment | 0 views

    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. (more…)




  • Economics of Dhoom 3
    I.One | December 25, 2013, 4:00 AM | 3 comments | 0 views

    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.

    Cost

    Production Budget ———- 80 cr.

    Print and Advertising ——- 20 cr. (more…)




  • Box Office Ranking Bollywood 2013 ?

    YEARLY BOXOFFICE
    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 Box Office
    I.One | December 21, 2013, 11:52 AM | 8 comments | 0 views

    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.

  • Krrish 3 Goes The Dabangg 2 Way

    Krrish 3 Goes The Dabangg 2 Way

    Tuesday 26th November 2013 11.00 IST
    Boxofficeindia.Com Trade Network

    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. (more…)




  • Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram Leela Nearing 100 Crore
    I.One | November 26, 2013, 1:37 AM | 2 comments | 0 views

    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.

  • Controversial box office collections of Krrish 3 – Our take!
    TanqeedNigaar | November 13, 2013, 1:18 AM | no comments | 0 views

    link: http://www.indicine.com/movies/bollywood/controversial-box-office-collections-of-krrish-3-our-take/

    Ever since Krrish 3 released in theatres, the comments section on our website and Twitter timeline have been flooded with questions related to the box office collections of the film — Why is there such a huge difference between numbers released by independent trackers like Box Office India (BOI) and the producers of the film? Is BOI trust-worthy? Since quoting a record-breaking figure for the opening day and weekend, results in free-publicity across all news channels and social media, how can figures released by a production house be trusted – after all, with millions at stake with a film like Krrish 3, the producers can quote any figure that they want to!
    Below is a quick comparison between the 10 day collections of Krrish 3 released by 3 different sources.
    Box Office India website: Rs 153 cr in 10 days (excluding collections from Telugu and Tamil versions)
    Box Office India Magazine: Rs 171.47 cr in 10 days (excluding collections from Telugu and Tamil versions)
    Filmkraft Productions: Rs 194 cr in 10 days from Hindi, Rs 206.35 including Telugu and Tamil.
    Here’s how, we think, each source tracks their figures
    1. BoxofficeIndia.com were the first to release All-India figures, which is probably why they are considered to be a trust-worthy source within the industry and by fans. In fact, a lot of well-known trade analysts use figures released by BOI and claim those numbers to be their own! The 202 crore lifetime figure of 3 Idiots was first released by the trade website, which was universally accepted as ‘actuals’ of the 2009 Rajkumar Hirani blockbuster.
    BOI releases daily figures based on collections from a few theatres in various circuits, which is then compared to other films with a similar release size. For example, sample figures of Krrish 3 will be compared to Chennai Express, as both films released on approximately 3700 screens across India. Since they probably have contacts with top distributors, they are also well-aware if a film is under-performing or record-breaking in one or more circuits. In short, around 20-25% of collections are tracked on a daily basis for bigger films, the final total is just a guess estimate which isn’t always very accurate.
    Have their figures always been reliable? No, not really. When Hrithik Roshan’s Jodhaa Akbar released, they declared the film a ‘Super-Hit’ with All-India collections of around 63.5 crore net. But on the new version of their website, they’ve reduced the total to Rs 59 crore and also changed the verdict to ‘Semi Hit’. The difference between the two verdicts is huge.
    Screen captures from 2008 and 2013 below.

    Jodhaa Akbar is not the only film though. They declared Om Shanti Om as the biggest grosser of all-time at Rs 85.79 crore net. A couple of years later, they deducted more than Rs 6 crore from its total, making it the second highest grosser after Dhoom 2 (Screen captures below). Even the figures of Jab Tak Hai Jaan were reduced by more than 15% when the film was in its third week.

    Current site has OSO at 79.42 cr below Dhoom 2
    Current site has OSO at 79.42 cr below Dhoom 2 which released in 2006
    2. Box Office India Trade Magazine: These guys have plenty of sources and usually fetch figures directly from the distributors. They also provide circuit-wise figures on a daily basis. Their figures from a few circuits are at times way off the mark. Very rarely do they make comparisons or give early estimates. In short, they play it safe.
    3. Figures from the production house: Exhibitors (theatre owners) report to distributors, who report directly to the producers. So only the producers accurately know how much a film has collected. But in today’s times its all about opening day / weekend records and films that are fastest to 100 / 200 crore clubs get nation-wide free publicity across all news channels and social media websites. That results in higher ticket sales, because a film that is record-breaking is considered to be good content-wise too.
    For example, industry insiders are well-aware of the fact that Chennai Express did not break the opening day record of Ek Tha Tiger. But, UTV released a figure that was a mere Rs 0.12 crore higher than the previous record held by Salman Khan’s 2012 blockbuster. Result? ‘Shahrukh Khan beats Salman Khan at the box office’ was breaking news. It also became the fastest to the 100 crore club by collecting 100.45 crore in 3 days, another big record, more publicity. The film went on a historic run and eventually became the highest grosser of all time. While Chennai Express was a well-made film and thoroughly entertained every section of the audience, the fact that it broke the opening record helped it break more records in the long run.
    When years of hard work and crores of rupees go into the making of every film, we can’t really blame the makers for not being 100% honest, can we? But the big problem is, this game of manipulating figures could get dirtier. The difference between various trade sources will get bigger with every major release. Those who love discussing figures, may no longer be thrilled by a record-breaking opening from their favourite superstar. In short, it could get way too predictable. Every commercial holiday release featuring Salman, SRK, Aamir and Hrithik, that is even close to the previous record, will be pushed over the line to break records .
    At the same time, BoxofficeIndia could also be playing a smart game here. In recent times, every media channel has started quoting figures released from production houses and leading trade analysts. Since every fan would want their favourite star’s film to break records, BOI figures were no longer being quoted or trusted. But now, the difference between their figures and producers is so huge that a section of the media has already started quoting figures from BOI. Could well be a publicity stunt from them too!
    Indicine too has grown tremendously over the last few years, we now have our own set of reliable sources. We publish our own figures for small / medium releases, but currently we do not have enough sources in the trade to track wide releases like Krrish 3, Chennai Express or Ek Tha Tiger. To give you an example, Yash Raj Films produce and distribute their films themselves. How can any one even know where they release their films? How can BOI or any other website, get collections from a fixed rental screen in a small town in Uttar Pradesh? It’s impossible, no matter how many sources you have in the trade! That doesn’t mean their figures are unreliable, it’s just inaccurate!
    Coming back to the controversy around Krrish 3. We have spoken to a lot of exhibitors and distributors in the last few days, we also have theatre-wise figures from a few centres for the first week. According to our estimates, the Hindi version of the film has collected around Rs 138 crore in its first week and 170 crore net in the first 10 days. The Telugu and Tamil version has contributed around 12-13 crore, taking the lifetime collections of the film to around 182-183 crore. Again, these figures are not 100% accurate, just estimates.
    Any source, any figure you take.. Krrish 3 is still one the biggest blockbusters of the year. It’s a hugely profitable film for all its investors.
    Finally, a word of advice. Take your pick and trust the source that you think is most reliable. But stick to ONE source, don’t change it according to your convenience or liking towards your favourite star!
