Box Office Predictions of ABCD2

ABCD2 The first part that released in February 2013, went on to do good business of close to 40crs. That film, without any face value, showed that there is enough love that people are ready to shower on dance films, if they are decently made. ABCD2 now is expected to have a huge start especially because of the star-heavy presence in form of Varun Dhawan and Shraddha Kapoor.

First day – 13crs

If word of mouth is Good,
Weekend – 44crs
First Week – 72crs
Lifetime – 122crs

If Word of mouth is Mixed,
Weekend – 42crs
First Week – 65crs
Lifetime – 93crs

If word of mouth is Bad,
Weekend – 41crs
First Week – 60crs
Lifetime – 75crs

Note – The lifetime business can be higher or lower than the predicted numbers if the WOM is excellent or disastrous, which this predictions doesn’t take into consideration.

    Box Office India Trade Network

    ABCD 2 has taken the biggest opening of the year by beating Gabbar Is Back by a quite a distance. Below are the average occupancies in morning shows.

    1. ABCD 2 – 50%
    2. Gabbar – 40%
    3. Tanu Weds Manu Returns – 35%
    4. Roy – 32.5 %
    5. Dil Dhadakne Do – 30%
    6. Badlapur – 27.5%
    7. Baby – 25%
    -. Tevar – 25%
    8. Ek Thi Leela – 22.5%

    There is a difference in the number of screens with ABCD 2 at 2550 screens and Gabbar Is Back at 3300 but the occupancies do favour ABCD 2 which should be enough for it to record the biggest opening day of the year. Of course it does depend on how the rest of the day goes but it is looking very good for ABCD 2 at the moment.

    ABCD 2 Records Highest Opening Day Of 2015
    Friday 19 June 2014 23.30 IST
    Box Office India Trade Network

    ABCD 2 has recorded the biggest opening day of the year with collections set to come in at around the 14 crore nett mark. The collections have crossed the 12.75 crore nett figure of Gabbar Is Back which was till now the highest opening day.

    The film has been a hit a bit by the heavy rain in Mumbai but North has scored very well for this type of film which is testimony to the emergence of Varun Dhawan as a major star. The collections in the North are mainly due to his following among the youth.

    Mumbai circuit despite the rain in Mumbai city will clock a 5 crore nett figure due to excellent business in Gujarat / Saurashtra. The film will emerge a winner with just normal holds over the weekend which should take it to over 45 crore nett for the weekend.

    ABCD 2 Has Very Good Opening Day
    Saturday 20 June 2015 11.30 IST
    Box Office India Trade Network

    ABCD 2 had the best opening of the year with first day collections of 14.25 crore nett apprx. The film was excellent in Mumbai circuit despite heavy rain as it grossed 5.25 crore in the circuit. The business was excellent in Maharashtra which also reflected in CP Berar which grossed a huge 89 lakhs nett. Despite the rain it is still Mumbai circuit which has performed best.

    North India managed to do well also despite the subject. Obviously the film won’t go like Tanu Weds Manu Returns in North but opening is similar to that film with Delhi/UP being slightly ahead and East Punjab at the same level.

    North may not be number one but Mumbai surely will be as opening far exceeds anything else this year. The film will just have to hold at these levels to emerge a hit. A slight drop is normal on day two for a bug release but recently this trend us changing with Saturday growth coming for most of the releases. It remains to be seen if ABCD 2 manages to grow on Saturday or not.

    ABCD 2 Set To Emerge Second Big Hit Of The Year
    Saturday 20 June 2015 23.30 IST
    Box Office India Trade Network

    ABCD 2 is set to emerge the second big hit of the year after Tanu Weds Manu Returns. The film has held firm on Saturday with collections likely to be over 14 crore nett again and may even go to 14.50 crore nett. The film has shown solid growth on Saturday especially in Delhi and Kolkatta while some centers have dropped but that is normal as opening was very good.

    The film has advantage of 3D prints which are notching up very high occupancies all over. These screening are also practically full for Sunday barring the weak evening and night shows.

    ABCD 2 will easily be going over 45 crore nett for the weekend and has an good window in front of it with the next big release four weeks away. The main reason that it probably wont be able to chase down the Tanu Weds Manu Returns total despite the window is because that film was patronized by the family audience while this is more for the youth. Films for family audiences tend to sustain better than films aimed for the youth audience.

    ABCD 2 Has Very Good First Weekend
    Monday 22 June 2015 11.30 IST
    Box Office India Trade Network

    ABCD 2 had a very good first weekend with business if 46 crore nett apprx. It is the highest first weekend of the year beating the 39 crore nett apprx of Gabbar Is Back. The film has done extraordinary business in Mumbai and CP Berar is also huge as a lot of its centers fall in Maharashtra.

    The Mumbai circuit business of the film is around 17.50 crore nett in the first weekend. Tanu Weds Manu Returns had grossed 18.50 crore in the first week while Gabbar Is Back was 19.50 crore nett apprx for the week. It is almost touching the week figures of these films in the weekend.

    But the key for ABCD 2 has not been Mumbai but North as Mumbai has a ready market for dance films but North. North India and Rajasthan is not great or anything but it is good and for a dance film these markets can be called very good. Also the start of Ramadan means that many stations on UP have a dip in collections. The weekend business ensures a HIT and remains to be seen how higher it goes.
