    Tanu Weds Manu Returns Opens Very Well In North India
    Friday 22 May 2015 12.00 IST
    Box Office India Trade Network

    Tanu Weds Manu Returns had a very good opening in North and was good in most other places. Overall the initial is strong. North India multiplexes had the best opening of the year ahead of Gabbar Is Back. The Delhi NCR area is excellent as theatres in places like Gurgaon which don’t open normally record strong occupancies till later in the day were 50% plus for morning shows.

    Despite on lesser screens than Gabbar Is Back it could record the top first day figures in the North. East Punjab will be best bet as the Delhi/UP total may be let down by figures in UP where opening was much less than Gabbar Is Back. Mumbai, Rajasthan and CI also opened well.

    The opening is average in a couple of circuits like Nizam / Andhra and West Bengal but the film is not the sort that has to score universally to succeed. The film should record the highest initial for a heroine orientated film though being a sequel it had an upper hand compared to other heroine orientated films which got solid day one numbers like a Mary Kom and Heroine.

    Tanu Weds Manu Returns Collects Well On Day One
    Friday 22 May 2015 23.30 IST
    Box Office India Trade Network

    Tanu Weds Manu Returns has done well on day one. The collections in North India are very good. Rajasthan and CI have also done well but collections in Mumbai, South India and East India are average. The first day should come in around the 7.75 crore nett mark.

    This is a strong number even though some circuits are not optimum. This is is because the collections are super strong in North. The collections in Delhi/UP and East Punjab are at a similar level to Gabbar Is Back which is fantastic for a film like this.

    Normally for films with a cast like this it would be about growth on Saturday but here even if it holds its a solid winner. Any Major growth will be a bonus and just add to the film.

      Tanu Weds Manu Returns Day One Business
      Saturday 23 May 2015 12.30 IST
      Box Office India Trade Network

      Tanu Weds Manu Returns had a good first day grossing around 8.50-8.75 crore nett. The business was lopsided towards North India which grossed excellent numbers while others were good to decent. The opening of the film is higher than Baby which was a much bigger film.

      The film is a huge hit in the North and remains to be seen how the rest of the country performs. Markets like Rajasthan and CI will be okay but the crunch will be Mumbai circuit and if that picks up and goes on a run the film could emerge the first super hit film of 2015.

      The potential for growth on Saturday is mainly outside North India. Mumbai and South have huge potential for growth though even if the film holds at first day levels it would have done very well.

    So this is exactly what I was predicting πŸ˜‰

    Anyways, Its a terrific start and I think it has good WOM too. Lets see how far it goes!

  4. Tall Pike 7 years ago

    People say that no big star is willing to work with Kangana, that she is a nobody.

    People sat Deepika is perhaps Vollywood’s # 1 star.

    Yet Kangana by her self has opened a movie better than Deepika (even with an International Star, Irrfan’s Khan). If a star is responsible for the movie’s initial (opening) than Kangana is a star alright.

    • sputnik 7 years ago

      The same Kangana’s Revolver Rani opened with 1.75 crore. So its not just Kangana’s name that opened TWMR. Tanu Weds Manu Returns is a sequel of a well liked movie. The trailer was good and the movie is entertaining and hilarious for the most part. Audiences can sense which movie will be entertaining from the trailer itself.

      Piku also opened well because the trailer was liked and the movie is entertaining for the most part. Its not as hilarious as TWMR but it does not also drag as much as TWMR.

      Irfan is a great actor but unfortunately the opening in India was at least not due to him. Some were trying to credit the opening all to Deepika and discredit Amitabh and others were trying to credit the opening all to Amitabh and discredit Deepika. But the opening was apt for the movie of its type. And so is the opening for TWMR which has an advantage of being a sequel of a well liked movie.

      • Tall Pike 7 years ago

        Just like men typically don’t tune into The Oprah show, women (more so in India), don’t go for gore & violence. RR had no appeal for its core audience. In recent times, NH-10 is a good example, of a decent movie with no appeal to its natural demographics.

        This is not to say that RR itself was not with flaws.

        If you say Irrfan does not command much fan following then that is OK. Let’s agree that PIKU basically was anchored by Deepika, while TWMR is anchored by Kangana. Now, Day 1 is mainly about star power.

        The opening day for TWMR is almost twice as much as PIKU.

        After Day 1, the content takes over. Hence seeing the results of TMWR, one needs to be very disingenous to think Kangana is a nobody. Time and again, she has delivered.

        • sputnik 7 years ago

          What about Queen which also did only 1.75 Cr on first day last year? It had Kangana and it had no gore or violence.

          Opening day depends on lot of factors like trailer, genre, star power, sequel and so on.

          Yes both Piku and TWMR are female oriented movies but there are some differences. TWMR is a sequel. TWMR is more entertaining or hilarious than Piku but it is more contrived than Piku.

    Tanu Weds Manu Returns To Be First SUPER HIT Of 2015
    Saturday 23 May 2015 22.00 IST
    Box Office India Trade Network

    Tanu Weds Manu Returns is set to emerge the first big hit of the year. The collections have jumped across the board including places like Maharashta and Nizam which was important. The second day collections should be around 11.50-12 crore nett and could even go a little higher depending on Mumbai growth.

    The film is set to be the first SUPER HIT film of 2015 which is a ray of rope considering what has happened so far this year including the disastrous Bombay Velvet last week.

    North India has gone crazy for the film where it will be a blockbuster as Delhi/UP and East Punjab hit figures on Saturday which are normally associated with event films.

    Tanu Weds Manu Returns Day Two Business
    Sunday 24 May 2015 11.00 IST
    Box Office India Trade Network

    Tanu Weds Manu Returns had a huge 50% plus jump on Saturday. The film showed growth all over India including Mumbai circuit which was on lower side on day one. The first two day business of Tanu Weds Manu Returns is as follows.

    Friday – 8,50,00,000

    Saturday- 13,00,00,000 apprx

    TOTAL – 21,50,00,000

    The difference between Tanu Weds Manu Returns and the other releases like Baby, Piku, NH 10 etc which have jumped on Saturday is mass circuits. This film has shown extraordinary growth on in mass circuits which is rare. Even single screens are up which hardly ever happens. This film is the biggest hit of the year so far.

  7. Tall Pike 7 years ago

    I hope and pray that TWMR will help to finally place Kangana in the top bracket of Bollywood heroines.

    If talent alone is the criteria, then she is the BEST. Her voice has the warmth of Meena Kumari. Her Dance has the insanity of Dharmendra. Her acting right from Gangster has been pitch perfect.

    TWMR does not have half the material as PIKU. TWMR does not have half the star wattage as PIKU. But TWMR has Kangana. If only Bhaskor could be half as convincing as Kusum (both side characters). If only Amitabh could emote like Kangana. PIKU as I have always said, deserved better. It got the Bronze at THE SPECIAL OLYMPICS, but it could have been Marlon Brando ON THE WATERFRONT, all it is missing is a third actor who could go toe to toe with Deepika and Irrfan. Sadly the other two walk all over him as if Amitabh was some but bit player from Bhojpuri movies. A real actor would have lifted PIKU to the lofty heights it deserves, just like Kangana has demonstrated that a small movie can also pack a punch. Much like Deepika and Irrfan, all the other actors in TWMR are also at the top of their game, but Kangana amps up her act and surpasses them like some hurricane. PIKU could have been TWMR, but for Amitabh.

    When I left the theatre, I was happy for Tanu and sad (but proud) for Kusum, this is how mesmerizing Kangana was in TWMR. Rarely have I seen two characters played by the same actor (actoress) as different and distinct as Tanu and Kusum.

  8. Tall Pike 7 years ago

    Hearing that on Sunday (Day 3), TWMR made 15+Cr in India. This means that on Day 3 TWMR made more than what PIKU made in its first two days combined.

    Also hearing that just as the failure of Bombay Velvet helped PIKU (beyond its natural ability), the success of TWMR is sadly sucking away all the Oxygen from the air. Multiplexes are switching over the screens to TWMR ( Digital prints makes this possible).

    TWMR Cruising to 100 Crore – Superb Hold On Monday
    Monday 25 May 2015 14.30 IST
    Box Office India Trade Network

    Tanu Weds Manu Returns has a superb hold on Monday morning and is cruising to a 100 crore nett total. Although its hard to put a number on Monday this early its safe to say the drop will not be much more than 20% from Friday. It could even get close to the Friday total depending on the evening though lower ticket rates at multiplexes do play a part.

    The film has found appreciation across the country and that is what has set it apart from the rest of the films this year.

    There are centres in Gujarat and Rajasthan which are on par or even better than Friday. They may have been on the lower side on Friday but are a key for big success especially for a film like this which does not have a big cast.

  11. Tall Pike 7 years ago

    Lessons from recent movies.

    TWMR shows that when a movie works, the only difference between a big budget movie and a small budget movie is theatre count.

    PIKU shows that Amirabh Bachchan needs to go back to his Sholay and Roti Kapda Makkan roots and just play character roles only. 30+ years of non stop flops have proven without a shadow of doubt that audience does not want him in lead or larger than like roles. PIKU shows us that when Amitabh screws up as a character actor the movie can still be salvaged by the lead actors.

    Bombay Velvet shows us that you cannot expect to sell something which conflicts with people’s sensibilities or experience.

    Tanu Weds Manu Returns Heads For BLOCKBUSTER Status
    Monday 25 May 2015 23.30 IST
    Box Office India Trade Network

    Tanu Weds Manu Returns has had a phenomenal Monday as collections may come in at around the 8 crore nett which is not far off what it collected on day one. Multiplexes nearly always drop on Monday due to to the ticket rate drop so even if footfalls match Friday the collections drop but here the collections are actually up at places.

    There has been a slight drop in the North where collections were excellent on day one but the rest of the country which opened lower is hardly showing a drop and some places are even better. Some circuits may show an increase from Friday and if somehow Mumbai increases the final total cane be very close the Friday number.

    It will be interesting to see the drop on Monday when final collections come in the morning as it could be in single digits. The film is set to emerge a BLOCKBUSTER and words like Super Hit and Blockbuster had become a dream as far as Hindi films were concerned over the last five months.

  13. Tall Pike 7 years ago

    There are many differences between TWMR and PIKU (please free to add to the list):

    TWMR has earned at the BO on its own strength. PIKU was helped by the misfortune of Bombay Velvet.

    TWMR is sort of a solo Kangana movie. PIKU was helped by able support of the incredible Irrfan Khan, and the content, to its lead, Deepika.

    TWMR has no albatross around its neck. PIKU is handicapped by the absence of the required performance from Amitabh Bachchan, and the stigma of Bachchan’s non stop 30+ years of flops.

    Tanu Weds Manu Returns had a phenomenal Monday as collections were similar to day one. The film only really dropped in North where the opening was strong. Elsewhere collections were as good as Friday or better. The first four day business of Tanu Weds Manu Returns is as follows.

    Friday – 8,50,00,000

    TOTAL – 46,00,00,000

    The film is heading for a week of 63-65 crore and Blockbuster success. The film will record the highest first week collections of 2015.

  15. Tall Pike 7 years ago

    TWMR’s Tuesday collection is approx 7.5 Cr

  16. Tall Pike 7 years ago

    Sorry guys that number was 8 Cr. it now appears that TWMR might even finish the week 1 with 70 Cr.

    Am I surprised ? No not at all. One just has to compare the quality & consistency of Kangana’s Haryanvi Vs Amitabh’s poor & inconsistent Bangali (as Bhaskor in PIKU) to recognize that TWMR is no ordinary film.

    TWMR is a hit. No matter how you slice it, this movie is a hit. Then what about those that just “hate it” ? Now I can understand and appreciate those that don’t like it. But what about those that don’t see any merit, any justification for TWMR’s success, what about those that still deny its success, ? Well perhaps those guy are so delusional that they think they are NASA. We can discuss movies but we cannot cure delusions, can we ?

    Classifucations 2015 – Tanu Weds Manu Returns Tops
    Thursday 28 May 2015 11.00 IST
    Box Office India Trade Network

    After 85 releases, may finally gave that big hit with Tanu Weds Manu Returns with its domestic revenue heading for te 60 crore mark. The month also saw Piku and Gabbar Is Back do well but the combined profits from all three are not enough to cover the losses of Bombay Velvet.

    So despite one big success and two other successes the month still does not end up in the black and its not very often that a month has three successes.

    Since Diwali last year only big films like Happy New Year and PK have had footfalls and its heartening that a film with limited face value like Tanu Weds Manu Returns scores all over. It also proves if the content is there then even non cast films can score in mass circuits. In a circuit like Rajasthan the film could put up a figure challenging films like Bang Bang and Singham Returns which is huge for a film like this. The classifications of films in 2015 are as follows with their apprx distributor shares in brackets.

    All Time Blockbuster


    1. Tanu Weds Manu Returns (Will cross 60 crore)

    Super Hit


    2. Piku – (Expected – 34 crore)

    3. Badlapur (23.50 crore)

    4. Dum Laga Ke Haisha (12.75 crore)

    Semi Hit

    5. Gabbar Is Back – (Expected – 45 crore)

    6. NH 10 (14.75 crore)


    7 Baby (38.50 crore)

    Below Average

    8. Hunterrr (6 crore)

  19. Tall Pike 7 years ago

    TWMR will win many fans and awards. It truly is exceptional. It deserves the success it has achieved, but I predict that for some, it will also join, Shatki (The Dilip Kumar one), and Mohabbatein ((With Bhai’s Bhai) as the most hated movie.

    Let me explain.

    Deepika and Irrfan adequately expose Amitabh’s inability to act/emote in Piku. They both walk all over him as if he was some junior artist from a Bhojpuri movie. Piku teaches us that if Amitabh is a character actor in the third lead (side show off Broadway), then when he screws up, the movie can still be salvaged by the lead actors. BUT, the bronze medal that PIKU has received at the SPECIAL OLYMPICS (it deserves more), swept Amitabh’s flaws and incompetence under the carpet.

    In this relative celebratory environment, along comes TWMR. It shows us what true success for a small movie looks like. Moreover it proves the incompetence of Amitabh (Checks Bhadkhor Vs Kusum), suddenly for some it is SHAKTI and MOHABBATEIN, all over again. Just like Kangana has done in TWMR, Dilip Kumar and Salman’s Bhai have previously exposed Amitabh’s vulnarabilities. Hence for some, TWMR will join SHAKTI and MOHABBATEIN from now onwards.

    Tanu Weds Manu Returns had a very strong first week grossing around 68.75 crore nett. It is the highest first week collection of 2015. The film added around 31 crore nett on the weekdays which is huge giving it a 45% ration on the weekdays when the norm is 30-35%.

    The film is a blockbuster and just remains to be seen where the final business settles. It is assured to finish amongst the top twenty grossers ever and may even make it into the top fifteen. The film will be the highest grosser ever for a film costing less than 50 crore. The best at the moment are 2 States, Ek Villain and Grand Masti.

    The key for the film has been business in mass circuits. Rajasthan has clocked 4 crore nett and Ci is at 2.50 crore nett. These figures are the difference between this and a film like 2 States which caters more to urban audience. It will mass centres where the extra business will come from, Mumbai city, Bangalore may well end up less than 2 States but the difference in smaller cities will be huge in the favour of Tanu Weds Manu returns.
