Barfi Saturday Business

Barfi! saw huge growth on Saturday as collections were around 35% up from Friday. The Saturday collections were around 11.50 crore nett taking the two day figures to 20 crore nett for the film. The jump was across the board with most circuits jumping in the 30-50% range. This sort of Saturday growth is a first for the year for films that opened well on day one.

The Saturday approx figures from some circuits are below with Friday numbers in brackets.

Mumbai 435 (320)

    The BO of Barfi has stunned me. It will have close to 33-35 cr weekend which is great.If it can hold,chances are good to cross the gross of RS.And we have some aamir fans who are satisified with 100 cr for talaash because – “hello its a “dark” film”.Bullshit.

      Saw elsewhere that people have negative things to say but where I saw, hall was 50% but people were enjoying. I think it would trend better.

      True and Well Said !!!

      Talaash has to double Kahaani to be considered a performance else its big disappointment.

        I am pretty sure Aamir wouldn’t act in completely dark thriller (He couldn’t get momento). Kahaani is a happy thriller. Where audience sees thrills/suspense and satisfied with end result. They could have made it dark by say Vidya character getting killed Or vidya killing a wrong guy or even darker if the villain survives and keep on doing same thing. If Talaash is normal straight forward thriller it would do good and if you put some good songs it might cross 3 idiots even. But most people are predicting based on unknown. Let the movie come and then do the nitpicking!

          100 cr scenario for talaash looks possible in only one case if its an extremely poor film in its genre and is outrightly rejected like kites or tmk.Those films made 50 cr and 60 cr way back in 2010 which is like 3 years gap till talaash releases (30 Nov ,2012).
          The reason for the unhinged 100 cr excuse could be the handicap of expectations after the BO fate of DG even though it wasnt really an aamir film.Talaash is a proper aamir film with big star cast and production house.

          Question, I think here, and what baba raised is not about content or how good or bad Talaash will be but Can Aamir take talaash to one determined net ???, say 150+ crs. Its basically question of real Star( BO) power, Yes, if Movie and content is great than movie is gonna get huge gross. Having said that, One has to give Aamir credit for Script selections, which again should be part of Super stardom(?).

          But No one can escape from ‘Law of Averages’ 😀

          Well Aamir said during Memento that he needs to know what happened at the end but then went on to do Dhobhi Ghat.

          From the trailers Talaash does look to me like a dark thriller. The ending will be some big twist – could be split/multiple personality or some supernatural stuff.

          I don’t think there will be any lip sync songs in Talaash coz it would look stupid. I think there might be one or two songs in the background.

          Even Don 2 with SRK (majority of his fans prefer him only romantic movies) and only one song and not being a regular Bollywood masla movies (movie was more like Hollywood heist thriller) went on to do 100 Cr.

          So Talaash with Aamir (whose fans are much more open to diverse movies from him) should easily do 100 Cr unless it is boring for many (like DG) or has a WTF ending.

    I find it funny that some people are bringing in genre now. Where was genre when they expected MNIK to beat Ghajini and 3 Idiots?

    • Baba Ji 7 years ago

      agreed.

    • hithere 7 years ago

      There is a genre and there is treatment 🙂 If KJO is at helm he even makes serious movie in his K3G mode. He needed to make MNIK in CDI mode and results would have been far better.
