Baby Boxoffice Collections Thread

Baby Baby Opens To Below The Mark Response
Friday 23 January 2015 12.00 IST
Box Office India Trade Network

Baby opened below the mark with collections around 20-25% on average. The opening is lower than Akshay Kumar’s last two films Holiday – A Soldier Is Off Duty and Entertainment.

If compared with Entertainment the opening is similar at multiplexes but lower at single screens. The film has just not opened in places like UP, Rajasthan and CI where most Akshay Kumar films start very well irrespective of their final fate. The best start is in the Delhi/NCR belt.

Normally when a big film opens at these numbers it is tough to survive but here reports are decent as fas the multiplex crowd is concerned and there is a big holiday on Monday which will prove to be big advantage if the reports can translate into collections over the weekend. Holiday – A Soldier Is Never Off Duty had started at around 30% but was doing 50-55% in evening and closed on a 11.50 crore nett plus day one. Here the task will be to pick up from mid afternoon and somehow get around the 10 crore nett mark as the Holiday number seems a stiff task.

    i think it will get a 9-10 cr day 1 which is par for the course. this is what akshay can get on day 1 as a star. not the ones he got in HF or RR.

    • yakuza 5 years ago

      Its more to do with weird title and no popular music. With a dry look and feel like this movie, no star can open better ..

    • yakuza 5 years ago

      Can u believe .. some female colleague after seeing Baby poster on street thought its some Akshay old movie re-releasing with new name (Like happened with many movies during 90’s)

      Frankly hardly anyone from my friends aware about “Baby” .. and i realized this yesterday

    Baby Struggles On Day One
    Friday 23 January 2015 23.00 IST
    Box Office India Trade Network

    Baby has struggled at the box office on day one with collections likely to come in at around the 7.50 crore nett mark. The film has come out a bit better than what it looked like in the morning but there has not been that major leap in business that could have taken it to the 9-10 crore nett range.

    The mass circuits have performed very badly with Rajasthan collecting only 38 lakhs nett which is less than what Tevar collected a two weeks back and one of the lowest openings of an Akshay Kumar starrer in Rajasthan. Its a similar story in UP, CPCI and Bihar.

    The multiplexes of Mumbai, Delhi, Punjab and Bangalore are better as these areas have seen growth. This sort of opening number for a 75 crore plus film would normally mean curtains but Baby has that big holiday on Monday. So big 30% plus growth on Saturday and Sunday and then a repeat of Sunday on Monday will give the film a chance despite this low start.

    Baby First Day Business
    Saturday 24 January 2015 13.30 IST
    Box Office India Trade Network

    Baby grossed 7.75 crore nett on day one which is a low total. The film opened slowly at 20-25% and went to around 50% in the evening but the jump was limited to metros like Mumbai, Delhi, Pune and Bangalore .

    The film will have to show major growth on Saturday and Sunday and then the big holiday on Monday can also help. A minimum 50 crore nett total of the extended weekend was a must but here it looks like that is out of range unless the growth is phenomenal.

    The promos gave it a niche feel especially considering the film is an action/thriller type and that has done the damage. Holiday was a similar type of film but the growth of business there was at multiplexes across the board and single screens started at a much higher level. Here key cities like Jaipur, Lucknow, Ludhiana, Indore, etc have just not performed. The best business has come in Mumbai, NCR and South.

    I have doubts about its BO. its not a film everyone can stomach. female audience definitely wont take to it as they are pansies. some soft males too. no romance angle and songs. madras cafe like BO is what baby should look at. i hope it makes 70 cr and breaks even

    Baby Second Day Business
    Sunday 25 January 2015 14.00 IST
    Box Office India Trade Network

    Baby grossed 9 crore nett on its second day. The growth was around 16-17% on Saturday but the film needed minimum 30% growth and 10 crore nett plus figure on Saturday. The two day business of Baby is as follows.

    Friday – 7,75,00,000
    Saturday – 9,00,00,000

    TOTAL – 16,75,00,000

    The film now needs a big Sunday and areas like UP, Rajasthan, CI etc which have been dull to date to show big improvement. A plus for Sunday is that evening and night collections in metro multiplexes will not fall as they normally do due to the holiday on the next day.

    Baby Heading For Decent Sunday
    Sunday 25 January 2015 23.00 IST
    Box Office India Trade Network

    Baby is heading for a decent Sunday of around 11.75 crore nett but it means a sub 30 crore nett weekend for the film. Despite the decent figures on Sunday, the requirement was this sort of number on day one. It basically means the film can get now where near the 50 crore nett mark for the extended weekend. For that it needed a bigger jump on Sunday.

    The collections on Sunday were still low in many areas and its pretty certain now that its fate is dependent on whether the big cities can hold after Monday and for how long.

    The film is not going anywhere in UP, Rajasthan, CI, Nizam etc. It leaves a circuit like Delhi/UP also struggling as UP is so weak. The best business is coming from Mumbai and East Punjab followed by Mysore. The weekend figures of 1.25 crore nett in Rajasthan and 1 crore nett in CI tell the story. The figures are like Kill Dil and Tevar which were smaller films and did not feature a star like Akshay Kumar.

    btw , anyone expected this kind of turn around in akshays career? i had given up hope on him. i thought his career will have only craps like hey baby and hf with only some memories of his khiladi days. since last 3 years he has added some really good films to his filmography. brothers will be good and it be big at the BO too. airlift will again be a low grosser like baby but a success nonetheless whic should motivate him to do more films

    Baby Low Weekend Trend Decent
    Monday 26 January 2015 12.30 IST
    Box Office India Trade Network

    Baby had a decent Sunday as it grossed 12.50 crore nett taking its weekend total to 29 crore nett. The trend over the weekend is decent but the weekend total is low especially for film with a high cost. The weekend collections are as follows.

    Friday – 7,75,00,000
    Saturday – 9,00,00,000
    Sunday – 12,50,00,000

    TOTAL – 29,00,00,000

    The best business has come in Mumbai and East Punjab circuits while Rajasthan, CP Berar, CI and Bihar are dull. The collections will be good on Monday due to a holiday for Republic Day but the film will have to hols very strong thereafter if it is to decent or beeter business.

    Baby Heads For 40 Crore Extended Weekend
    Monday 26 January 2015 23.30 IST
    Box Office India Trade Network

    Baby is looking at a 40 crore nett extended weekend total as its Republic Day holiday collections seen in the 11 crore nett range as per early estimates. The film has not really performed at the box office. There was a good jump from Sunday at some single screens but it was due to the big national holiday and the will go back to normal tomorrow.

    The multiplex business was on par with Sunday until the late evening shows as collections dropped as the next day is a working day. This is will probably be the case with night shows as well.

    A 40 crore nett total over four days when one day is huge national holiday is a pretty poor performance. The trend has been the only saving grace from that low start but even the trend is fair not phenomenal which had had to be from a 7.75 crore nett day one.

    Baby First Monday Collections
    Tuesday 27 January 2015 12.00 IST
    Box Office India Trade Network

    Baby grossed 11.50 crore nett on Monday which was a holiday for Republic Day holiday. The total so far is 40.50 crore nett. The film held best in Delhi/UP on Monday with collections same as Sunday. The first four day collections are as follows.

    Friday – 7,75,00,000

    Saturday – 9,00,00,000

    Sunday – 12,50,00,000

    Monday – 11,50,00,000

    TOTAL – 40,50,00,000

    The film has not really performed till now and needs a big Tuesday of around 7 crore nett for a decent 60 crore nett first week. If this happens then the second week can also be good but basically the damage has been done with the low figures till date.

    Baby Collections On Tuesday
    Wednesday 28 January 2015 11.30 IST
    Box Office India Trade Network

    Baby grossed 4.75 crore nett on Tuesday which is okay considering Friday was 7.75 crore nett but basically the film had to hold stronger. Also the hold is coming mainly from Mumbai and Mysore while most other circuits are down which is not that good for long term. The five day business is 45.25 crore nett.

    The film had decent word of mouth but only in the metros and these areas showed good growth in the holiday period. The other areas with weak word of mouth started low and just did not perform. The surprise is Gujarat which is the only mass area to perform and has grossed around 6 crore nett in five days.

    Mumbai city, Thane and Pune are decent and that added to Gujarat means Mumbai circuit has done okay. Mysore is also good. East Punjab was decent over the weekend but fell on Tuesday. The rest are all pretty dull. The first week business will be around 53 crore nett which is should have been its extended four day weekend business if it was to have a chance of emerging a hit.

    Khamoshiyan And Hawaizaada First Day Business
    Saturday 31 January 2015 11.30 IST
    Box Office India Trade Network

    Khamoshiyan grossed a poor 1.50-1.75 crore nett on day one. The figures are much lower than a similar film Alone released a couple of weeks back which grossed over 3 crore nett. Alone did not do well so there is little chance of Khamoshiyan doing better as it can’t catch it with almost half the start. Also the revenue for this type of genre is practically zero from the satellite market today which means it has to cover from theatrical which is impossible.

    Hawaizaada was even worse than Khamoshiyaan with collections in the 50 lakhs nett range. The film was tax free in UP but collections were like a thousand or two per show.

    Rahasya and Chal Guru Ho Ja Shuru were total washouts both collecting a few lakhs each on the opening day.

    Baby Day Eight Business
    Saturday 31 January 2015 12.30 IST
    Box Office India Trade Network

    Baby grossed 2 crore nett approx on its eighth day which is a poor collection. The drop is around 75% from day one which is pretty decent in terms of business trends. The problem with Baby being the start was low so that sort of fall from its start is not the result it needed.

    There will be a good jump as the new releases have proved to be duds and are unlikely to make any headway at the box office which leave Baby to make the best out of Saturday and Sunday.

    The weekend can to 8 crore nett or even a little higher due to the likely growth it will see but its still a low figure for the second weekend.

    Khan fans seem concerned about baby being hit.They just couldn’t believe a film which shows muslims as terrorists doing well
    They are concerned about the changing tastes of Indian audiences.They are used to films showing muslims as terrorists flopping,they just cant believe that this kind of a film is hit.

    Superstar Akshay Kumar in Baby is looking very good, fit and young, even younger than some young heroes. Very different from the new old man avatar he is sporting now a days.He should not be seen in public with the salt and pepper beard and grey hair. He thinks it is a fashion statement like stars abroad like George Clooney etc. sameerWell he even looks good even as an old man, but that will ruin his fan following. As in India the fans will only worship a young hero. The slight hint of age and you start loosing the fan following.
    The Khans Salman, Aamir and Sharukh are 3-4 years older than him but will never be seen in public in grey hair or beard. They groom themselves to look younger. Now Akki is better and younger looking than some of the youngest heroes so why is he hell bent on sporting the salt and pepper beard and grey hair. He is going to drive away all his fans His films will flop as no fans will go to see a hero who is old and he will be left playing character roles. The opening of his movies have already been affected due to this. If he does not pull up his socks and revert back to looking young he will go down. Please Akki we love you too much to go down like that. You are the best youth icon Indian youth can follow what with your humility after all that achievement, disciplined and right fitness policies. Please don’t snatch away that opportunity from our Indian youth .
    Akshay, I think partly the blame for Baby a modern day classic and a remarkable movie, the best in its genre, getting a low opening is because you were running around doing promotion with the salt and pepper beard and grey hair. No one will go to see an old man perform stunts. The sight of grey hair is a turn off for most Indians. And I think you are to be blamed if your Superstar status is harmed.
    We the fans have requested you to not make public appearances looking old but you still continue to do so and see the outcome. A fantastic film like Baby missed out on a great opening and has average collections.

  28. Baba 5 years ago

    when was the last time an akshay kumar film trended this well? hats off to neeraj pandey!

    ” The power of good word of mouth has helped the Akshay Kumar starrer not just sail through but also ensure that collections have held fort quite strongly right through the second week.

    With over 20 crore coming in, this action flick has collected more than 84 crores and is now just 16 crore away from the century mark.”
