Bombay Velvet Opens To Dull Collections
Friday 15 May 2015 12.00 IST
Box Office India Trade Network

Bombay Velvet had a dull opening all over as it opened to collections of 15-20%. For such a big film the opening is a disaster. The only thing going for the film was Ranbir Kapoor but it has not worked as the audience gas just not come. It is probably due to the presentation as the opening is less than Roy where he had an extended guest role.

The film should improve collections irrespective of content as they can’t go any lower but it’s unlikely the film can survive a setback like this.

The film has opened to poor figures in metros as well. You can’t really make an urban niche film costing over 100 crore as this sort of investment needs a 20 crore nett day one or at least 15 crore nett at worst but here the film has not even opened at 10 crore pace.

    Bombay Velvet Heads For Disaster
    Friday 15 May 2015 23.30 IST
    Box Office India Trade Network

    Bombay Velvet is heading for disaster as first day collections look to be around 6 crore nett. The film opened to dull houses and has not improved much. There will be a jump in cities on Saturday but this is a 2500 screen release and not a 1000-1500 screen release like a NH10 or Piku where the screens are mainly those which grow on Saturday. There will be screens that fall here as well meaning limited growth..

    Leaving that aside it needs multi fold growth of the like which is unlikely as it has never happened before. Basically the first day has sealed its fate.

    The year saw a mega disaster earlier in Broken Horses which had practically zero collections with a fair budget, here the collections are not exactly zero but the budget is big. Both films are by directors who have a history of disasters but this year they both have delivered the sort of disasters that make their other flops look reasonable..

    Bombay Velvet First Day Business
    Saturday 16 May 2015 11.30 IST
    Box Office India Trade Network

    Bombay Velvet grossed a disastrous 5.25-5.50 crore nett on day one. It can’t really be put into words how bad the collections are. It’s hard to describe how good a 25 crore day one is for Kick pre Eid and here its hard to describe how bad 5.25-5.50 crore nett is with 2500 plus screens and a huge cost.

    The story was same all over barring Mysore which at least had some sort of collections. The film suffer huge losses, in terms of the amount lost it will be the highest ever. In terms of percentage of the investment loss it will be 75%.

    The film had lower collections than last week’s Piku in some circuits. Even a big curcuit like Mumbai had similar collections of around 1.80 crore nett.

    Bombay Velvet Budget Sixth Highest Ever – Collections 118th
    Saturday 16 May 2015 12.00 IST
    Box Office India Trade Network

    Bombay Velvet is the sixth most expensive film on landing behind Dhoom 3, Bang Bang, Happy New Year, Kick and Ra.One.

    So with this layout it has to record a top ten opening day, or at least top twenty but this 120 crore plus magnum opus ranks a disastrous 118th in terms of highest days. Ranbir Kapoor’s lowest opener ever in terms of collections is Saawariya (2007) at 3 crore nett, that film was also a big flop but a 3 crore opening day against an SRK blockbuster like Om Shanti Om is good judging by what Bombay Velvet has done eight years later.

    It is the worst opening for Ranbir Kapoor in real terms but for the director Anurag Kashyap it’s par for the course. His top opening day figures as director prior to Bombay Velvet were 2.87 crore nett for Gangs Of Wasseypur (2012), 2.72 crore nett for Gangs Of Wasseypur 2 (2012), 1.34 crore nett for Dev D (2009) and 75 lakhs nett for Gulal (2009).

    Bombay Velvet Is Flat On Day Two
    Saturday 16 May 2015 23.30 IST
    Box Office India Trade Network

    Bombay Velvet showed no growth on day two with collections again set to be around 5.25 crore nett. If some growth does come it will be to the tune of 25 lakhs nett at best. Even a 100% jump would not have altered its fate.

    The collections of Piku edged part it at some multiplexes on Saturday while Gabbar Is Back had better collections at single screens in some cities despite being in third week. Infact collections of Gabbar Is Back at single screens were better even on the first day. The only circuit where any decent growth has come in is Mysore where collections look set to be 15% plus higher.

    The film will have around 10.50 crore nett with a weekend having no chance of the first day collections of films like Besharam and Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani which collected in the 19.50 crore nett range on day one.

    Bombay Velvet Is Flat Again On Sunday
    Sunday 17 May 2015 23.30 IST
    Box Office India Trade Network

    Bombay Velvet remained pretty flat on Sunday again with growth likley to be less than 10%. The collections will be around 5.75 crore nett which will give it a weekend of around 16.25 crore nett apprx. The initial was a disaster and so is the trend as the film has not even seen the normal growth that happens with an urban film for metros..

    The weekend collections will be less than films like Badlapur and Tevar and quite a bit less as these films crossed 20 crore nett. The film is a total mess and will record losses which are double of any previous Hindi film

    The business in the two big circuits will be 5.50 crore nett apprx in Mumbai and 3.75 crore nett apprx in Delhi/UP.

    Bombay Velvet To Set Benchmark In Terms Of Losses
    Monday 18 May 2015 11.00 IST
    Box Office India Trade Network

    Bombay Velvet grossed around 16.25 crore nett in its first weekend. The film opened to dull collections and remained there. It even failed to jump much on Sunday. The losses on the film will be of the magnitude never seen before for a Hindi film.

    The recovery of the film from all revenues will struggle to hit 25 crore with the domestic theatrical share looking to settle at 11-12 crore. Overseas is looking 4 crore and though the satellite rights are on the books on the distributors sister company at a high rate the actual revenue will hardly touch 5 crore. Its is similar case for music. Its a similar case with music which will hardly fetch revenue. All this on a 120 crore plus cost which means a near 100 crore loss between the holders of the main rights (theatrical, television and music)

    There have been huge losses before be it Drona, Khelein Hum Jee Jaan Se and Guzaarish amongst others but nothing like this. It will be easier to beat the box office records of PK then to beat the record losses of Bombay Velvet going forward.

    Bombay Velvet Has Just One Week Run
    Friday 22 May 2015 10.30 IST
    Box Office India Trade Network

    Bombay Velvet is a huge disaster as it grossed 22 crore nett in week one. the film has a very low weekend and collections kept on dropping badly from Monday onwards. The film could not even show any sort of hold at sub 2 crore nett days. The film faced total rejection.

    The film will struggle to hit 25 crore nett as most multiplexes reduce the screenings to one show a day. Its the same picture abroad as well as India and its Worldwide Gross will hardly be 45 crore.

    This puts its Worldwide figures less than low grossing flops of last year like Shaadi Ke Side Effects and Finding Fanny. Every circuit was a disaster with best performance coming in Mysore comparatively.
