Action Jackson Opens Below The Mark

The opening of Action Jackson is below the mark all over. The response at mass centres is better but even there it cant be called good. The opening in multiplexes of Mumbai and Delhi is poor and even multiplexes in other big centres are low be it Jaipor, Indore or Lucknow.

The single screens in above mentioned cities have opened to an average response but for this type of film they should have opened at 90-100%. The opening is better than the releases of the last few weeks due to single screens but that is not saying much as the releases in November did not open well. The opening on average is 15-20% at multiplexes and around 50-55% at single screens.

The same time last year R… Rajkumar had a 9.50 crore nett approx first day and looking at the morning collections of Action Jackson it won’t get to that number unless there is a rapid improvement in collections. The release is wider than R… Rajkumar but occupancies are much lower.

    Action Jackson Looking At Low First Day
    Friday 05 December 2014 23.00 IST
    Box Office India Trade Network

    Action Jackson has not collected well on day one though collections in mass centres especially in the single screens has meant its not as bad as the releases of the past few weeks. The first day is heading for a total of around 8.50 crore nett as per early estimates. A film like Action Jackson should be recording higher figures on day one because its not the type of film than show much growth on day.

    The film has managed to do better in Mumbai, Rajasthan, CP Berar, CI, Nizam and Bihar while North India has recorded poor collections. Even the collections in UP are pretty low.

    The collections could go up on Saturday as multiplexes are dull but as mentioned above its not the sort of film which can show major growth like of over 30%.

    Action Jackson First Day Business
    Saturday 06 December 2014 12.30 IST

    Action Jackson grossed 9.25 crore nett approx on day one as it had decent collections in mass circuits but was poor in North India. The better collections came in places like CPCI, Rajasthan and Gujarat.

    The first day total is not bad if looked at the point of view of what has happened in the past month or so but looking at the cost and a 3200 screen release the film should be collecting much better numbers. The collections are similar to R… Rajkumar released at the same time last year and the break up is also similar with the same circuits doing better.

    This sort of opening makes the film dependent on growth which should not be the case for a mass film as the growth is likely to be limited if there is any. The multiplex business in North India has dented business badly. The opening day is the tenth highest of the year.

    Action Jackson Set For Drop On Saturday
    Saturday 06 December 2014 22.30 IST
    Box Office India Trade Network

    Action Jackson is set for a drop in collections on Saturday. The film has seen a noticeable drop in collections where the collections on day one were decent. Gujarat, CP Berar and CI are all down. Some centres are down to the tune of 20-25%.

    The other areas that did not not open well like Delhi and East Punjab have not managed to show any growth. The theatres in these areas are similar or slightly down. A drop in collections would not be much of a problem if the film had taken a strong opening but with collections on day one being less than 10 crore nett and a drop on Saturday leaves the film with little hope of success.

    The second day business will come in at around 8 crore nett mark which means even a 30 crore nett weekend is looking an impossible task for Action Jackson.

    Action Jackson Weekend Business – Does Well At Single Screens On Sunday
    Monday 08 December 2014 11.30 IST
    Box Office India Trade Network

    Action Jackson has grossed around 28-28.50 crore nett in its first weekend which is the the 13th highest weekend of the year and well short of what it should have done. The business in single screens was decent on Friday, dropped on Saturday but was good to very good on Sunday. Multiplexes are dull.

    The film has cost 90 crore plus to release and promote so you really need to recover at least 50 crore as share from the domestic market and for that a 40 crore nett plus weekend is a must and Action Jackson is well below that. The good business on Sunday at single screens gives it a chance to sustain in single screens over the next two weeks but that wont be enough..

    The plus is probably that the film did find an initial audience in some parts as Ajay Devgn is a mass star which mad sure the film did not have the low figures that the other releases of November saw.

    no one posted the trailer of this movie for some reason. it has over 2 mil views in 2 days. same as baby

      Yeah I am surprised that @aryan did not post the trailer. I did not bother posting it as I found out about the trailer quite late. I think some celebrities including SRK tweeted about the trailer.

      As for the trailer its a bit long but it has some spooky moments. And Bipasha has become the go to actress for horror movies.

      I think its a official remake of the Thai movie Alone as they have used the same name. It has already been made as Chaarulatha in Kannada and Tamil.

      One more horror movie Khamoshiyan directed by Vikram Bhatt starring Ali Fazal, Gurmeet Choudhary, Sapna Pabbi
