Dhoom 3 Boxoffice Collections Thread

dhoom-3-3aDhoom 3 Takes Bumper Initial

Friday 20th December 2013 11.00 IST

Boxofficeindia.Com Trade Network

Dhoom 3 has taken bumper initial all over. The opening is the best of the year with multiplexes opening to housefull collections and a similar story at single screens which have opened as yet. The plus for the film is that it has recorded fantastic collections at multiplexes which tend to open slowly and hardly ever record high occupancies.

The fog in parts of North India has affected but even here the trend is excellent as the theatres located in the city centre of the affected cities are housefull where as the ones which are a bit of town have opened less.

The film has opened on a non holiday so there will be a bit of cooling down of collections in the afternoon period or at least that has been the trend on non holidays. Even taking this into account it will record a huge first day and despite it being a non holiday the film can put up a very big opening day number.

      Man. Dhoom 3 is frikkin stupid, ridiculously OTT, unbelievably hammy and so terrible it’s non stop fun.

    • narad_muni 8 years ago

      Why dont you post your review?
      And how does it compare with the prequels?

      Obviously, going by the pedigree, we should not expect some masterpiece from the Dhoom franchise

  3. dwnpiyush 8 years ago

    I will watch it tonight. Kaise bhi kar ke. Chaahe black mein ticket leni pade!!

  4. yakuza 8 years ago

    As per early feedback from @bobbytalkcinema .. Dhoom3 plot is exactly same as Akayla(1991).

    • alfa.one 8 years ago

      No its not akayla. Its revange against bank of Chicago. All the four heroes are equally bad pr goood. Heroine has nothing to do except dancing like item girl and shedding clothes
      there is one suspense till interval bur very ordinary.

      • sputnik 8 years ago

        hmm… four heroes? Are you counting Jackie as hero or have you very subtly given away the spoiler ๐Ÿ˜‰

        CilemaSnob tweeted this

        “Ok, got the spoiler of Dhoom3. all of you anyway know it. As i keep saying 99% of the bollywood rumour is always true ;)”

        “Abeyaar. Nolan”

        So I think I already know the spoiler.

        That revenge against InsuranceCompany/Bank is from Now You See Me which was obvious from trailers.

        • dwnpiyush 8 years ago

          Revenge against bank employees was also done in an old Dharmendra film- Jeevan Mrityu-of course it would not at all be similar. But it just struck me.

      So Its time to miss an Aamir Khan Film ?

      Was the Serial Kisser (Taking a leaf out of Baba’s book ) comfortable while kissing Katrina and how did the scene looked?

      • alfa.one 8 years ago

        No you should not miss the films. Opinions and liking or disliking depends upon what you expect. Not nesessory that if some one do not like a film, it is bad.

        There is nothing like what was projected in the media about kiss. It is a very short and simple kiss (unlike emran hashmi’s films)

    BO update: ‘Dhoom-3’ takes a historic start!
    By Taran Adarsh, December 20, 2013 – 13:15 IST

    Every once in a while there comes a film that defies conventional laws of audience reaction, becoming one of the biggest films ever to have released. This is exactly the case with DHOOM-3. In fact, the film, which is the third instalment in the DHOOM franchise, starring Aamir Khan, Abhishek Bachchan, Katrina Kaif and Uday Chopra, has got off to a fabulous start with morning shows featuring 95-100% occupancy across the country.

    While some other successful films too have had a great start this year, reports suggest that DHOOM-3 has managed a never seen before advance booking rate in almost all territories, with even Sunday shows being sold to a 90% occupancy. If all goes well for the film, as suggested by reports that DHOOM-3 is expected to reach the Rs. 100 crore mark over the weekend, the film might just be able to break the records established earlier this year by CHENNAI EXPRESS and KRRISH-3.

    Released across approximately 4500 plus screens (inclusive of Tamil and Telugu versions), it’s safe to say that the hurricane called DHOOM-3 has finally arrived.


  9. rajesh 8 years ago

    Responce of a coulleague who has seen it in jampacked house,”Utter boring, maha bakwas, didnt expect this from Aamir.”

  10. Anjanpur685Miles 8 years ago

    The WOM Is fantastic, people are dancing in aisle, parking lot and restrooms, Black ticketing going on everywhere for almost double/triple the price of tkt. People are queuing up outside cinema halls to book ticket again – after watching it. Cinema halls are calling in police for security for controlling crowds!!! It looks like another Sholay to me.

    • Reddemon 8 years ago


      • alfa.one 8 years ago

        Let’s hope it proves to be another Sholey and not upscale version of K786 !!!!

    Dhoom 3 takes near-house full opening

    Closing the year with a big bang is Aamir Khanโ€™s Dhoom 3, which has taken an outstanding opening of 95 to 100 per cent, all-India. The film, which also features Abhishek Bachchan, Uday Chopra and Katrina Kaif and is directed by Vijay Krishna Acharya, has already sold 80 per cent tickets via advance booking for the entire weekend. Releasing on a non-holiday and getting such a gigantic opening, Dhoom 3 is all set to break and make records. The movie has released at more than 4,000 screens across India.

    Rajesh Thadani, Multimedia Combines, Mumbai

    Dhoom 3 has taken a mind-blowing opening. The buzz around the film was so strong that even though today is not a holiday, the film opened to 95 per cent all over India and 90 per cent in Mumbai. Shows are already seeing 100-per cent occupancy from the second show onwards. The film has released in more than 4,000 screens in India. During the weekend, the film will net Rs 100 crore all-India.

    Brijesh Tandon, H K Tandon and Company, Delhi-UP

    As expected, the film has taken an outstanding opening in Delhi-UP. The morning shows opened with 90 per cent but from the second show, occupancy is almost 100 per cent. The film has got maximum screens, and despite the rumor about ticket rates, itโ€™s no different from any other big film. Expect a huge day one today from the makers of Dhoom 3.

    Jaspal Dhingra, Nanaksar Enterprises, East Punjab

    The film took an opening of 90 per cent for the morning show and 100 per cent for the noon show. The film could have easily had a 100 per cent opening but the cold weather here has played spoilsport. We have high expectations from Dhoom 3 as its first day and weekend numbers will be record-breaking.

    Debashish Dey, Aum Moviez, West Bengal

    Aamir Khan has proved once again that whatever he touches turns to gold. Dhoom 3 has taken an outstanding opening and is 100-per cent packed from the very first show. The film is getting mind-blowing reviews from the audience. The weekend shows are already booked.

    Ravi Machhar, Sahyog Films, Nizam

    The film is a super-duper blockbuster and, mark my words, no other film will be able to break its record for the next few years. The response to the first show itself is mind-blowing. In the history of Aurangabad, I have never seen such advance booking, where 4,000 tickets were sold. The opening was 100 per cent in the Nizam circuit.

    B H Basha, Basha Enterprises, Mysore

    Down South, Dhoom 3 has taken an outstanding opening. The first show witnessed 90-per cent occupancy in all cinemas including multiplexes and single-screens. Over the weekend, the film will grow further. Once again, Aamir Khan has proved that he the real king of Bollywood!

    Vijay Kher, NR Multimedia, CP

    In CP, the film opened at 90 per cent and has been allotted maximum shows and maximum screens. So expect a big number by the end of the day. In CP, the film has been assigned 240 screens.

    Jeetu Khandelwal, Pioneer Movies, Orissa

    Dhoom 3 took a bumper opening as was expected as it is an Aamir Khan film. Tuesday is a holiday so expect a long weekend for this film.

    Movie review: Dhoom 3 is a visual treat
    Rohit Khilnani December 20, 2013 | UPDATED 14:45 IST

    Dhoom 3

    Director: Vijay Krishna Acharya

    Cast: Aamir Khan, Katrina Kaif, Abhishek Bachchan, Uday Chopra

    Rating: 4 Star Rating: Recommended4 Star Rating: Recommended

    Welcome to the flying world of YRF’s Dhoom 3. I say so because here a motorbike can fly efficiently and if the need arises then it can also become a speed boat and if you push it further it can also function underwater. Well it’s not just cool bikes even an auto rickshaw can fly here!

    Vijay Kirshna Acharya’s Dhoom 3 is another visual treat where you get to see a fancy foreign city, cool bikes, police cars and good stunts but that’s about it. The Dhoom series theme music when clubbed with the action stunts in the latest installment provides some entertainment because what you end up watching is not all that bad. But if you are looking for any logic, you are watching the wrong film.

    Sahir (Aamir Khan) loses his father because a Chicago bank doesn’t allow him to continue his circus and asks him to shut shop. Since then his mission is to shut the bank down, he wouldn’t settle for anything lesser! A talented circus boy grows up and continues to run the circus and rob the same bank living in the same city, but of course he is never caught because he is no less than a magician. Robberies are well planned and executed by him. In the United States no security agency has managed to catch him and no camera has captured his face while he is on the move. Post the robbery he returns to the circus as if nothing ever happened.

    Since he leaves a message in Hindi each time he robs a bank the management calls for some help from India. ACP Jai Dixit (Abhishek Bachchan) and Ali Akbar (Uday Chopra) take charge of the case in Chicago and the local police take a back seat. As one would only guess, each time Sahir is one step ahead but what’s surprising is how useless the entire security system is made to look. When Sahir hears of Jai’s arrival, he immediately plans to meet him and take him into confidence which will help him understand his game-plan. Although what’s questionable here is the very fact that why would a cop who is just handed over an important case come to trust an unknown person in an unknown country. It is far from my understanding at least.

    As always you can make out Aamir Khan has worked hard for this particular role and it shows in many parts but it doesn’t match to what Hrithik Roshan did in Dhoom 2. Neither does Aamir pull off the action very well nor the dance steps. Katrina Kaif plays Aaliya, Sahir’s love interest; she has a very short role in the film. She puts a great show together in her opening scene and then she has very little to do. Abhishek Bachchan and Uday Chopra’s famous chemistry from the previous films does show in some portions. Music by Pritam and Julius Packiam is below average.

    Dhoom 3 is full of loop holes, over-the-top acting and an overdose of action that doesn’t fit well all the time. The timing is right so the film will run to packed houses but it’s surely not a film that I would recommend as your last outing for 2013!

    Dhoom 3 Challenges For Opening Day Record

    Friday 20th December 2013 16.30 IST

    Boxofficeindia.Com Trade Network

    Dhoom 3 (Hindi) is challenging for the opening day record despite releasing on a non holiday. Only two films have got to 30 crore nett on day one and they are Ek The Tiger and Chennai express. Krissh 3 managed a 31 crore nett on its fourth day but all these figures were recorded on national holidays be it Independence Day, Eid or Diwali.

    The film can top the 30 crore nett mark or stay below a by a couple od crore depending how the evening shapes. There will be a drop at some multiplexes in cities where it is cold and the last show at single screens will be lower as is always the case in December in parts of UP, Haryana and Punjab.

    It is a bit irrelevant whether the record comes or not as just to be up there with films which broke records on holidays is outstanding. No film has yet crossed 20 crore nett on a non holiday and Dhoom 3 is on target for 30 crore nett. Factoring in the holiday factor, the growth in ticket rates and growth in screen counts it is probably the biggest opening in recent times.


    • Anjanpur685Miles 8 years ago

      Again, BOI will ignore collection from 850 prints of non-hindi release this time.

      • Anjanpur685Miles 8 years ago

    Dhoom 3 Has Outstanding Day One

    Dhoom 3 (Hindi) had an outstanding day one collecting around 30 crore nett on day one as per early estimates. The film set opening day records in some circuits while in others it was below either Chennai Express or Ek That Tiger. It has to be noted these films released on Eid and Independence Day respectively while Dhoom 3 released on a normal working day. The film smashed the non holiday opening record by a distance.

    The film set new highs in Delhi/UP and East Punjab despite the cold weather though the collections were lower than Chennai Express in the southern markets due to that film having more local appeal for that region. The film also had a release in Tamil and Telugu and that version would have added around 3.25-3.50 crore nett with the Telugu version doing well.

    The film should record the highest opening weekend collection ever by beating the 87 crore nett three day figure of Chennai Express.

  26. narad_muni 8 years ago

    Huge Day one…gr8 start.
    Now, 250 should be minimum if the film is liked by audience.

    If WOM is negative, there should be significant drop today in the single screen dominated centers…But, clear picture we can get only on Monday/Tuesday.

    • Anjanpur685Miles 8 years ago

      Maine bola tha na 20-25cr karegi. See first day itself is 3.5cr as per boi.

  27. Aman 8 years ago

    Dhoom 3 had an extraordinary opening all over. The film recorded 75% plus occupancies at multiplexes on day one and single screens were 90-100%. The multiplex figures were outstanding for a non holiday. It is the first time that a film managed such high occupancies on high volume when its not a national holiday.

  28. Aman 8 years ago

    Even if Dhoom 3 does 250 cr that’s an under acheievement in my books. For it to be an ATBB it should cross 300 cr.Period.

  29. Anjanpur685Miles 8 years ago

    Ab shuru hi kiya hai to – let me waste some more computer ink.

    Day1 – 34Cr (close to my prediction of 35cr)
    Day2 – 40Cr
    Day3 – 42Cr
    Day4 – 17Cr
    Day5 – 22Cr
    Day6 – 10Cr
    Day7 – 8Cr
    Day8 – 7Cr
    Day9 – 10Cr
    Day10 -12Cr
    Day11 – 8Cr
    Day12 – 10Cr
    Day13 – 7Cr
    Day14 – 4Cr

    So week1 173Cr
    Week2 is 58Cr

    above is worst case scenario.

    • narad_muni 8 years ago

      lo…u forgot the christmas holiday?
      first week 200 worst case scenario

          christmas is day 6..

    KARACHI: In an unexpected revelation at the Box Office, Dhoom 3 featuring Aamir Khan and Katrina Kaif has beaten the first day box office collection record of Waar by Rs8 million.

    Waar had gathered a total first day box office collection of 11.4 millions rupees whereas Dhoom 3 made a total of a little more than 19 million rupees in Pakistan on its opening day on Thursday.

    Waar was released on 53 screens on Eid-ul-Azha whereas Dhoom 3 was released on 56 screens and made the record on a weekday which indicates its success in the coming weeks. It is still too early to say that Dhoom 3 will will beat the overall business of Waar but it will most likely become the highest-grossing Indian film in Pakistan by beating Chennai Expressโ€™s total business of approximately Rs100 million.

    Mumbai – 75-80% (Morning shows). 80%+ (Afternoon/Evening shows).
    Pune – 90% (Morning shows). 85-90% (Afternoon/Evening shows).
    Hyderabad – 98-100% (Morning shows). 98-100% (Afternoon/Evening shows).

    Thus, from early trend looks like Dhoom 3 should easily cross 30 crore nett mark for Saturday and collections may come on same level as on Friday.

    Dhoom 3 Set For Huge Saturday

    Saturday 22nd December 2013 20.00 IST

    Boxofficeindia.Com Trade Network

    Dhoom 2 is set for another huge day on Saturday with fantastic collections all over. There will be a drop as the first day collections were so high that inevitably Saturday morning could not compare to Friday morning but thereafter collections have been on par with Friday. The big multiplexes held collections very strongly on Saturday.

    The drop on Saturday will be around 10-15% so the collections should come in at around the 27-28 crore nett region which is a huge number.

    The trends on Saturday suggest the film is looking set for a fantastic run with the weekend set to close at record levels for all India collections and with a big midweek holiday on Wednesday the film will close the week with all records totally shattered

    Dhoom 3 Sets Boxoffice On Fire

    Saturday 22nd December 2013 10.00 IST
    Boxofficeindia.Com Trade Network

    Dhoom 3 is set emerge a huge blockbuster as it showed a phenomenal trend on Saturday. The second day today has become the key as business is now just about the first 20-25 days even for the films which sustain. The film is now sure to have extraordinary collections over the weekdays.

    Dhoom 3 has hardly dropped on Saturday with early estimates in the 29.50 crore nett range. The trend is phenomenal as multiplexes had collections matching Friday with some places even better. After such a bumper start a 15-20% drop would have been a good trend but the drop here is much less.

    North India has seen phenomenal collections despite the weather which is leaving morning and night shows lower at places but still the film is putting up never seen before numbers.

    The film is easily the biggest hit of the year and its all about where does it end now.


  47. mate 8 years ago

    LOL 27-28 cr was estimate now 29.50 cr also an estimate, after 3-4 hrs another estimate will be given in the range of 30 cr, then territorial breakdown. And after 1-2 years, when they re-adjust the figures of all the movies, then that territorial breakdown also become an estimate. Then what’s the need of mentioning it as territorial breakdown if that is also an estimate.
    I always applaud BOI.com for their effort for collecting figures from various centres and distributors, and of-course their figures are lot more trust worthy than the likes of Taran/Komal who simply put the producers’ figures. But If they also start indulging with such manipulation or BO forgeries then it’s an utter disappointment for those who want to know the real BO collection rather than those who change BO sources every time, that gave maximum for their favourite star’s movie. I think it’s the need of the hour to introduce a source (like boxofficemojo) that could work independently.

    • narad_muni 8 years ago

      BOI.co.in have 29.75 crores for day one.
      AS per Girish Johar’s tweets, the drop was more like 15-20% but BOI says only 5% drop

      Anyways, BOI is highly biased for Aamir’s movies. Their numbers will be very close to producer numbers.

      Also, they already declared it to be the biggest blockbuster of the year in 2 days

    Next year, the record will be broken unless it does 275-300 crores

  55. mate 8 years ago

    totally agreed with your previous comment. And I’m not here supporting BOI.co.in as I don’t consider it a BO source but the question raises when some exception is made for a particular movie or star. I trust BOI.com figures here too, as I always did, and I will continue doing this until they throw themselves to the level of those two gutter-Chaap ‘trade experts’ who still consider themselves the biggest trade experts, atleast one of them certainly think so. My question is why they gave 27-28 cr estimate then another estimate, when they can give ‘actual’ as estimates need not to be accurate. The drop is 15-20 % in some major centres then why should we assume that it would be in 5% range or negligible in others. There is always a difference of 8-10 % collection between BOI and Taran’s (producer’s) collection, then why an exception for one particular star. And ofcourse, it is not the star but a producers’ films so these are the same producers who gave manipulated JTHJ figures, but now suddenly they become fair that their figures matches with distributor’s. If ETT producers’ figure is 199 cr and distributors’ figure is 186 cr, If JTHJ producers’ figure is 120 cr and distributors’ figure is 102 cr, If YJHD had 190 cr and 178 cr respectively, then why they had the same for 3I and why there is minimal difference for D:3.

    • FS 8 years ago

      What BOI did during JTHJ after publishing week one numbers and then reducing 12-15% is unprecedented …ppl will always question such acts.

      Also, JTHJ was also from YRF. Now, if D3 BOI and YRF totals are close, thats surprising..isnt it? Thts y I raised the question.

      I will be happy to be proved wrong. I want to have one trustworthy source for Indian BO.

      All said and done, BOI is the best we have and I will go with their numbers (biased or not). Hope it clarifies.

    While that is a huge total indeed that would take some time to be surpassed, for Katrina the first milestone is for Dhoom 3 to cross the Rs. 200 crore mark so that she enters the elite exclusive club which currently has members like Chennai Express and 3 Idiots.

    Dhoom 3 is No 9 in US Top 10 for Friday collections with $1,075,000 from 236 screens.



    Dhoom 3, the action thriller that is also playing like gangbusters in India, is tallying up records in North America this weekend. The opening day estimate on the Bollywood film in 236 theaters is $1.075M and it is on track for a $3.5M three-day weekend. That marks the biggest opening ever for a Bollywood title in North America. Dhoom 3 now has the distinction of being the first Bollywood movie to do over $1M on its opening day. It also scored the highest opening gross for any Indian movie, surpassing the previous record holder, Disneyโ€˜s UTV love story Chennai Express (which grossed an estimated $745K for its Friday). On Dhoomโ€˜s opening day, it had a per screen average of about $4,500 versus Chennaiโ€˜s roughly $3,800. This has been a strong year for Bollywood in North America. Before Chennai Express was released, romcom Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani broke into the Top 10 on its June opening with a $1.3M first weekend take. It must be noted that Yash Raj Filmsโ€˜ Dhoom 3 has the widest release also to date. Dhoom 3, written and directed by Vijay Krishna Acharya and produced by Aditya Chopra, is considered to be one of the most expensive Indian films of all time and its running time is almost three hours. The high-tech heist actioner shot with Chicago as its backdrop is about a circus star out for revenge when his father dies who goes after the Chicago banker that led to his demise. The franchise is also playing in India to phenom numbers โ€“ translating to $6.1M in U.S. dollars. It is also setting records as the highest opener in Australia, more than doubling the previous Indian film, Jab Tak Hai Jaan and also in the UAE. Dhoom 3 stars Aamir Khan, Abhishek Bachchan, Uday Chopra, and Katrina Kaif.

    “At just 236 locations, Dhoom 3 set a new Bollywood record with $3.3 million. While Bollywood movies tend to be very front-loaded, there’s a chance that the holidays help Dhoom 3 ultimately get past $10 million.”

    Boxofficemojo is expecting 10 Million from US, seems little bit high, still achievable considering the start. Imax format perhaps helped in getting such a high no. apart from the craze for the movie. One more thing is Aamir is as popular as SRK in US.

    Box Office: ‘Dhoom 3’ Early Global Hit, Eyeing $25 Million-Plus Opening

    Ex-pats in Indian communities around the globe are flocking to see the film, which scored the top opening of all time in the U.S. for a Bollywood title.

    Bollywood’s Dhoom 3 has quickly transformed into a potent player at the global box office, where its opening could approach $25 million or more, including north of $16 million in India alone, according to early numbers.

    In North America, the movie debuted to a record-breaking $3.3 million from 236 theaters for distributor Yash Raj Films, making it the biggest opening of all time for a Bollywood title and coming in No. 9 for the weekend.

    Dhoom 3 is also doing strong business in other countries where there is a notable Indian population, including Dubai, Malaysia, Kenya and the U.K.

    FILM REVIEW: Dhoom 3

    Director Vijay Krishna Acharyaโ€™s story follows the exploits of a pair of Indian buddy cops (Abhishek Bachchan, Uday Chopra), although the main spotlight falls on superstar Aamir Khan (Lagaan, Talaash) in a flashy turn as Sahir, a modern acrobat and illusionist working in Chicago.

    The third outing in the Dhoom (Blast) franchise is the first Indian film to be released in IMAX theaters, including in India. As of Sunday, the movie is playing in 40 Imax locations in 14 territories, including a handful of sites in India and 12 locations in the U.S., where it is splitting screens with The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug.

    IMAX Entertainment CEO Greg Foster said it is the widest release in Imax history for a non-Hollywood title. He expects more theaters to be added based on the film’s initial performance, noting that each showing is averaging $25,000 per screen.

    “This was a fantastic movie by very skilled filmmakers and we’re thrilled that this is our first venture into the Bollywood world. Given its success, we’ll be doing more,” Foster said.

    In North America, this summer’s Chennai Express was the previous record-holder for biggest Bollywood opening ($2.2 million).

    Dhoom 3 is produced by Aditya Chopra, whose family runs one of the oldest studios in India. Aashish Singh executive produced, with Acharya directing from a script by Vijay Krishna Acharya.

    Dhoom 3 Shatters All Records

    Monday 23rd December 2013 10.00 IST
    Boxofficeindia.Com Trade Network

    Dhoom 3 has shattered all previous box office records to record a 95 crore nett approx weekend. The previous record holder Chennai express had grossed 87 crore nett over three days and 93.50 crore nett if paid previews are included.

    Dhoom 3 has grossed a further 7 crore nett approx in Tamil and Telugu which takes the all language figure to 102 crore. Every circuit in India with exception of Nizam/Andhra and Tamil Nadu/Kerala has seen records fall. These two circuits are short of Chennai Express with the Hindi versions but had regional versions also playing.

    Mumbai and Mysore had collections in the same range as Chennai Express. It is mainly South India where the weekend records have not come but the first week records should come in South.

    East Punjab has emerged the out performer beating the previous weekend record by 35-40% and this is despite the fog. Bihar has seen previous weekend record beaten by 30%.

    The first day and Sunday and Dhoom 3 (Hindi) are now the highest single days in history while collections on Saturday were the sixth highest of all time.


    • cr7 8 years ago

      Great numbers . But I thought Sunday would be more.It didn’t show any real growth over the weekend . Still its fantastic. But looking at the WOM don’t think it will break CE records by huge margin . I guess 220 is the max it can get now .

  64. narad_muni 8 years ago

    So, BOI was 95 cr weekend but they don’t provide any breakup of daily collections. Let’s wait for Taran’s numbers. I am sure it will be pretty close. So, that will show whether BOI is biased or not.
    The India numbers are excellent but not much higher than CE..Also,Dhoom 3 had 10% more screens than CE.
    Monday should be around 14-15 crores I feel. Lets c

    Btw, wots the lifetime predictions for the movie?
    I think it ll do 225-230 as per BOI, thanks to the hype and holiday period. But, 250 will be difficult

    Dhoom 3 Crosses 200 CRORE Worldwide In Three Days

    Monday 23rd December 2013 11.00 IST

    Boxofficeindia.Com Trade Network

    Dhoom 3 has set a new benchmark as it has crossed the 200 crore mark for weekend collections worldwide. It is the first film to cross the enviable 200 crore mark. Chennai Express had grossed 160 crore approx in its first three days.

    The gross collections in India are around 130 crore and Sunday figures for some markets in overseas are not available yet it is sure to be over 70 crore and could even go over 75 crore. The total should come in the range of $12 million.

    The out performance in overseas is even bigger than in India. The India collections are just 9-10% bigger than Chennai Express but overseas collections are 60-65% higher with the film seeing records smashed by huge margins wherever released.

    To have box office receipts of 200 crore plus across the world is just extraordinary. The feat is difficult to explain in words but the fact that Dabangg 2 which released exactly one year ago was the first film to hit 100 crore wordwide tells the story as Dhoom 3 has doubled that figure in just 12 months and that too with a holiday in the domestic market.

    The unparalleled mark of 500 CRORE worldwide is on for Dhoom 3.

      @ Ritz,

      What would have been D3’s collection, had it starred any other A lister in place of Aamir.

      • Anjanpur685Miles 8 years ago


        What would have been CE collections if it starred any other actress in place of Deepika? (I am discounting Rohit SHetty audience connect here)

        It is always about male lead taking credit in every case. Sad, but true.
        SRK put Deepika’s name in credits first and published PR articles about it – but when CE became hit – all posters were having just SRK on it showing the BO figures.

        I would be able to answer on D3 without Aamir only after seeing the movie. But that is irrelevant in Bollywood.

        • rajesh 8 years ago

          Hmm, are you equating Aamir with Deepika? She is much ahead, gave 5 big hits in one year without working in India’s biggest franchise.

          I read an Aamir fan’s tweet. He is hoping that only Aamir will break his D3 record (as if this success is because of Aamir only) with PK.

          • Anjanpur685Miles 8 years ago

    Official overseas numbers from Taran Adarsh –

    ‘Dhoom-3’ sets international markets on fire! By Taran Adarsh

    Records are meant to be shattered and DHOOM-3 is doing precisely that! The much-awaited biggie has emerged the biggest opener [opening weekend; Hindi films] in U.S.A.-Canada, U.A.E.-G.C.C., Australia, New Zealand and Pakistan. Also, the film has emerged the biggest opener of 2013, overtaking the *opening weekend total* of CHENNAI EXPRESS [$ 8.5 million]. The *opening weekend total* of DHOOM-3 is approx $ 10.17 million [Rs 62.95 crores]. Historic!

    Weekend: 20 – 22 December, 2013


    So, it has overtaken CE by 1.7 Million or 20%.

    BOI should be ashamed of themselves saying 12M opening and beating CE by 60-70% and what not.


    Shame on BOI – any more proof needed? They have become PR for Aamir

  69. mate 8 years ago

    It’s nice to see after many debacles in the last 4 years, Aamir taste some success infact a record-breaking success thanks to Bollywood’s biggest franchise ever. Personally I loved Aamir’s act in D:3, so don’t want to use harsh words against him. But this is also a fact that put any mainstream hero in Dhoom franchise and the result will be more or less the same. By the way, he didn’t start any club here as the weekend is 95 cr (130 cr gross) and overseas is 63 cr, so the total is 193 cr not 200cr. The figure 200 cr given by BOI is an estimate, not actual, but it’s very near to 200 cr. But in that sense, CE already started 100cr weekend club (94 cr) and also 400 cr club (390 cr) worldwide lifetime collection.

    • Anjanpur685Miles 8 years ago

      You guys first decide on who has to be ashamed and who not. Once you say BOI once you say Taran should be ashamed.

      You take BOI domestic number (95) and then Taran Overseas.

      Be consistent

      By taran: domestic 107 Nett + 62 overseas = 170 nett +33 taxes = above 200

      By BOI 130 cr gross + 70+ overseas = 200cr

      And looks like muni has dumped Girish Johar too now, after so much faith in his 20%/10% drop – as Johar has his number higher than BOI now.

      I mean I have seen people changing sides frequently but you guys are just jumping like kids here and there.

  70. mate 8 years ago

    Thanks narad_muni for reminding CE overseas, I forgot about CE 1st weekend collection, and I wondered how it becomes 60-70% more than CE weekend. It’s 20% more than CE 1st weekend at maximum.

    Dhoom 3 is running riot at the box office on Monday. The collections on Monday are simply unparalleled with huge unseen before numbers. The early collections coming in suggest an 18 crore nett figure and it could even go a little higher.

    The film on Monday is competing with the highest non holiday first day totals ever on its fourth day. Whatever the final number comes in at it will be phenomenal.

    The previous highest non holiday Monday’s ever were set this year with Chennai Express and Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani both at 12.50 crore nett approx and this figure will be smashed by a distance. There have been huge huge Monday totals like Krrish 3 and Ek Tha Tiger but these films had benefit of huge national holidays.

      250 is on . Incredible business .

      • FS 8 years ago

        Yes Incredible business. Imagine if it had released on a Holiday. 40-45 Cr could have been a possibility.

    • narad_muni 8 years ago

      I am not able to understand the paradox here…
      people seem to be loving the movie. The numbers are unimaginable

      But whomever I have spoken to – feedback is negative or average

  75. mate 8 years ago

    From here it looks like even 275 cr is possible with an outside chance of touching 300 cr. According to my calculation, the scenario will be like this.
    Week 1 = 160-165 cr
    Week 2 = 65-70 cr
    Week 3 = 22-25 cr
    Week 4 = 8-10 cr
    Rest = 6-8 cr
    Lifetime Total = 260-275 cr

  76. rajesh 8 years ago

    This seems somewhat confusing to me also, whatever feedback I have received so far is negative but movie is throwing insane numbers. Maybe, general public is liking it or may be imapct will be seen after first week. Whatever be tha reason, initial business is enough to take it to 250+.

    And then be ready for Dhoom 4.

    Dhoom 3 Has Extraordinary Monday

    Tuesday 23rd December 2013 22.00 IST
    Boxofficeindia.Com Trade Network

    There is no letting up in the collections of Dhoom 3 as it has collected around 19.50 crore as per early estimates taking the four day total to nearly 115 crore for its Hindi version.

    The film was rock steady all over with CI showing the lowest fall on Monday but that circuit had under performed the rest of India over the weekend. The collections on Tuesday should be higher than Monday as it will get benefit in evening as next day is a holiday.

    Its hard to put a exact number on how much the week can gross as Tuesday should be up and Wednesday cab even go towards the 30 crore nett mark though with such huge business the growth on the national holiday may not be the regular 50%. The range for the week should be 170-180 crore nett which is phenomenal

    • Anjanpur685Miles 8 years ago

      Lol, so BOI did over-report much higher than producers number. (around 2 million over-reporting)

      Btw, North America is much lesser as per bomojo – earlier was an estimate. (approx 1.7cr less)

      • Anjanpur685Miles 8 years ago

        “Sunday figures for some markets in overseas are not available yet it is sure to be over 70 crore and could even go over 75 crore. The total should come in the range of $12 million.”

        BOI I think estimated this based on INdia trend – thinking overseas Sunday will be higher than other 2 days like INdia. But Overseas Sunday is always lower than Saturday.

  79. rajesh 8 years ago

    So, SRK had for the first time highest grosser on his name but could not last even for 6 months:-).
    And, Aamir has biggest grosser on his name since Gajani (well practically, CE’s brief duration may be left.). I dont see any movie surpassing D3 in 2014, PK is much less BO friendly genre, Only Kick has an outside chance. SRK has HNY but I dont have faith in Farah Khan.

    • Anjanpur685Miles 8 years ago

      What is the genre of PK? It will be typical Hirani rona-dhona/overmelodrama (with some valid social points in it ofcourse) …and that is highly audience friendly genre. It may not break weekend record but will have fantastic WOM.

    • narad_muni 8 years ago

      Salman has no chance either – Kick or Jai ho.
      PK – u cant rule out. Hirani knows pulse of the audience plus it comes after the huge success of Dhoom3. It is the only movie which can break Dhoom 3 record in 2014

      What do you mean by SRK highest grosser for the first time?
      SRk had many highest grossers for the year

      • rajesh 8 years ago

        Highest grosser of all time, before CE it was never with SRK. And, by no means I am raising doubts on SRK’s star power.

  80. raj 8 years ago

    @rajesh – thats still 2 years less than the undisputed 7 years of salman’s highest grosser (hahk from 1994-2001)

    and dhoom 3 isnt even a 3 idiots kind of record that will last 4 years. its a record merely by market expansion and inflation adjustment. take for instance the fact that 2012’s highest grosser ETT had done 35% above 2011’s highest grosser ‘bodyguard’ after a period of just 12 months’ dhoom 3 looks set to do only 20% higher than ETT even after an inflation of 16 months.

  81. narad_muni 8 years ago

    Ritz – Aamir is the undisputed No.1 in India I agree.
    Also, in overseas, he has an edge over SRK in USA and some other countries. Overall, he is at par with SRK overseas or may be slightly more

  82. Anjanpur685Miles 8 years ago

    Well IMO its like this…

    Before 2000, almost everybody loved their favorite stars and there was hardly a comparison in BO figures – even if there was – all believed whatever tabloid they preferred – there was no reliable source so all fans were happy.

    Post 2000-2003, post Gadar, things started changing and BOI gained more prominance – people thought that it is most reliable source out there.

    Then the comparison started fights. For every 0.50 cr to 1 cr there were huge fights

    ..till 2008

    When the barrier of 100cr was crossed – the fights were not for meagre 1cr or so ..they became more on recovery vs budget – producer number vs xyz number

    Now the thing is even if there is gap of 5-10cr there are no severe fights as we have crossed that 200cr barrier.

    If next month, lets say JaiHo makes 200Cr then all this BO madness will mean nothing to everyone – as Krrish3 has almost reduced the madness to the half. BO figures dont mean much now IMO.

    After few years as films make more money and markets expand, as hindi movies start making 700, 1000, 2000 cr – these fights will cease to exist. It all will boil down to whether u like a film or not.

    I think in west it is same – do they compare – if Transformers2/3 did more than HarryPotter4/5? I dont think so – most of these are/were crap movies and still have their own fan bases.

    • rajesh 8 years ago

      Agree completely. Why there is so much fuss for numbers, fans of respective stars are loosing their sleep over these numbers. And, this situation arised some 4-5 years back, before that I have not seen fights over these numbers.

      • Anjanpur685Miles 8 years ago

        (along with other things) I think it is side-effect of nonsensical corporate competitive world at work place also (and work pressure associated with it) – especially in India – where there is hardly a work-life balance. Its all about number game then from top level mgmt.

    • Baba 8 years ago

      great comment ritz. fully agreed with your observations on the anxiety over BO by ppl over the years.

      I am surprised why ppl are suddenly thinking that the negative reviews from critics or comments from ppl they met, will result in the BO disaster. BO and the merit of a movie are not a mirror image!did the bad reviews ever affect any of the salman films or for that matter any big hit film that came? ofc the quality of each of them including d3 is highly questionable. thats a different debate. when aamir became a part of dhoom, it was expected that the film will be intelligent at script level compared to the last two but that didnt happen. it is same old cheesy masala script for which salman/akshay get bashed.

    • I.One 8 years ago

      Very good comment Ritz. My interest in BO took a beating after Krrish 3 BO fiasco. Yes, I am loosing interest in box office numbers. Manipulation of numbers have been impliedly mentioned in last 3-4 years, but recently the manipulation is expressed.

      More important role is that of media. Earlier box office numbers din’t mattered much. It was always the movies which RAN more and liked by paying public. But with media and consequently fans getting deeply involved with numbers, the fight on BO has reached to altogether different level. Due to which, normal movie going audience who do not cared till now about numbers, started taking interest in it. Evidently, the film fraternity too have got obsessed about the numbers to be published in press releases. This resulted into inflated numbers being published by producers and followed blindly by likes of Taran, consequently media. But then sometime it is so evident that the numbers released by producers do not make any sense which resulted into TOI mentioning clearly that producers just want their movies to break record and nothing else (Krrish 3).

      To get over with the obsession of numbers, media need to first let it go. May be than we will have more discussion towards movies rather than numbers.

      • Baba 8 years ago

        i thought you lost interest in BO after the ra1 fiasco ๐Ÿ˜‰ you stopped writing about BO.infact blogging

        • I.One 8 years ago

    Dhoom 3 is Phenomenal Overseas

    Wednesday 24th December 2013 09.00 IST
    Boxofficeindia.Com Trade Network

    Dhoom 3 collected a huge $10 million over its first weekend. The figure could have been more as the parts of The Gulf had a Fri-Sun weekend rather than the normal Thu-Sat and Sunday hardly collected in that part of the world. the Gulf could have been $1 million approx higher.

    Elsewhere the film had record three day collections in practically every market. The IMAX release helped in many territories. The Christmas period is very good in UK and US and the film has a shot at probably one of the hardest records to achieve which is UK lifetime. The opening weekend figures from major markets are as follows.

    United Kingdom – ยฃ907,000

    North America – $3,150,000

    UAE – $2,800,000

    Australia – $700,000

    Top Ten Highest Monday Collections All Time DHOOM 3 Second

    Tuesday 24th December 2013 22.00 IST

    Boxofficeindia.Com Trade Network

    Dhoom 3 had the second biggest Monday of all time and the biggest non holiday Monday ever by a distance. The top all time highest grossers on the first Monday are as follows.

    1. Krrish 3 – 30.94 crore (Holiday)

    2. Dhoom 3 – 20 crore approx

    3. Ek Tha Tiger – 18.93 crore (Holiday)

    4. Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani – 12.91 crore

    5. Chennai Express – 12.78 crore

    6. Dabangg 2 – 11.43 crore

    7. Dabangg – 10.68 crore

    8. 3 Idiots – 10.51 crore

    9. Rowdy Rathore – 9.22 crore

    10. Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram – Leela – 8.17 crore


  85. Aman 8 years ago

    And as we speak, Dhoom 3 is poised for a 24-25 cr tuesday.
    This is 3 Idiots-part 2 for Aamir as I remember even that movie was showing similar trending

  86. Aman 8 years ago


    Nice analysis of the BO situation prevalent here.
    But my question is what if a certain star fails repeatedly to make some record. Will his fans stop fighting?

  87. Bored 8 years ago

    Unless a movie gets extreme bad reaction (Ra. One, Besharam in recent past), negative or mixed wom does not mean a BO tank or crash. Most high grossers in recent past have been mediocre movies which were liked by certain sections and disliked by other sections of the audience – be is OSO, RNBDJ, Ghajini, CE, Krrish, D2, D3 etc etc.

    Some of Aamir’s movies have been good movies, so he has an extra respect factor which helps his otherwise regular stuff like Ghajini/D3. D3 with any other major star may not get such BO numbers. And that has nothing to do with how bad or good the movie is – was Ghajini any better than D3 as a movie?

    Also WOM depends on which section of the audience u are referring to, even if u cut out the ‘i prefer X/Y/Z star’ factor.

    D3 BO numbers so far has been phenomenal – reinstating that Aamir is the most popular star of India and overseas at present (as it was shown by Ghajini and 3I).

    Salman may be doing more work and getting more number of hit films, but he does not have as widespread popularity as Aamir. D3 will leave ETT numbers far behind. SRK, Hrithik have not been getting too many superhits anyways in the last few years.

    And PK will leave D3 numbers behind – its the return of 3I team.

    Dhoom 3 Tuesday Business

    Wednesday 25th December 2013 10.30 IST
    Boxofficeindia.Com Trade Network

    Dhoom 3 had another huge day as it collected in the 20-21 crore nett range as per warly estimates taking its total to around 136 crore nett. The collections on Tursday edged up a little in the metros and other multiplex dominated cities while others stayed the same or dropped a little. The multiplex areas benefited in the evening due to next day being a holiday.

    The film is likely to add another 40-45 crore nett over the next two days to have a first week total in the range of 175-180 crore nett which is 25% more than anything else before.

    Dhoom 3 is also on course to break the long standing second week records of 3 Idiots. It is these records which have remain unchallenged over the past 4 years although first week records have been broken many times.

  90. narad_muni 8 years ago

    Absolutely stunning numbers. The weekend numbers were good but not great.
    Monday and Tuesday numbers are absolutely out of the world and has taken the movie into a different orbit.

    250 crores is the absolute minimum here but chances of 275 crores is also there.


    I don’t know how the movie can do so well without very good or excellent WOM. But WOM is at best average as per my knowledge. What do you think is the reason for such amazing performance of the movie?

    • Anjanpur685Miles 8 years ago

    The reviews for Dhoom 3 range from average to bad. But the paying public is crazy about it and we are seeing new records created everyday. People give a damn to the reviews of these armchair critics.

    The weekdays are showing the real meaning of the term trending, something last seen with 3 Idiots.

    That’s the starpower of AAMIR!!!!
    The biggest star in India!!!
    The greatest actor-megastar in India!!!

    And before people bring in lame arguments like “If my star would have been in place of Aamir then movie Avatar ke record ko bhi tod deti ๐Ÿ˜› ” let me say to them ki bhaiyya khayali duniya se bahar niklo aur reality mein aa jao!! Hum bhi keh sakte hain ki agar Aamir tumhare star ke highest grosser mein hota to movie aur badi hit saabit hoti!!!

    Dhoom 3 To Be Highest All Time Grosser In Ten Days

    Thursday 25th December 2013 10.30 IST
    Boxofficeindia.Com Trade Network

    Dhoom 3 will become the highest grossing Hindi film ever in just ten days. The highest grossing Hindi film till date is Chennai Express at 208 crore nett and the way Dhoom 3 is going this figure will be breached at the end of business on Sunday.

    The film has already grossed around 160 crore nett in six days and next four days should see business of at least 50 crore nett even in worst case scenario.

    Chennai Express took 21 days to become the highest grosser ever while the earlier highest all time grossers 3 Idiots and Ghajini managed the feat in a similar time to Dhoom 3. Both films took around 10-11 days. The distributor share of the film will be second or third highest ever in just seven days.

      “Chennai Express took 21 days to become the highest grosser ever while the earlier highest all time grossers 3 Idiots and Ghajini managed the feat in a similar time to Dhoom 3. Both films took around 10-11 days.”

      This is only because of holidays and the craze for franchisee, without Aamir also it would have done so much. What say guys? ๐Ÿ˜‰

      Oh I forgot there were 3 Christmas and 3 Diwalis and 3 Eids in between ….and that TMK and Don2 also released during Christmas …and that Don2 was part of a franchisee…

    • Baba 8 years ago

      i opened boi to check the wed collection and instead of giving the wed figure it has given the cumulative total of 6 days. reason? the national holiday chritsmas day collection total is 24 cr which is 6 cr lower than friday, which was a working day.

      another thing to notice is boi after being so orgasmic over the first 5 days is now suddenly talking about the “worst case scenario” for d3. it is due to the drop on national holiday

  99. Anjanpur685Miles 8 years ago

    I think there is only one Indian film which can be compared with Dhoom3 in terms of screenplay, melodrama, emotions and the grandeur – Enthiran.

    Both are landmark in last few years.

          Well, I would say it is not 80s masala but much older than that – 40s,50s to be specific. The confrontation scenes between Sahir and Samar ; the way the scenes are taken – the theatrics, the dialogues – it belongs to that school. Thats the main reason I loved it the most.

    Dhoom 3 Goes Above Holiday Factor
    Friday 27th December 2013 10.00 IST
    Boxofficeindia.Com Trade Network

    There was a time that it made little difference whether a film came on a holiday or non holiday. Ten years ago, a big film that was going to work would put up 95-100% occupancies on opening day irrespective of holiday or non holiday and hold similar collections through the weekend. A film that was not going to work did get benefit of holiday with collections coming down the next day.

    This all changed as the releases got wider and the importance of holidays grew year by year but after a long time a film has gone above that holiday factor. Dhoom 3 proved that if a film has a craze amongst the audience then even still a holiday or non holiday release makes little difference. This is probably a rare occurrence as not many films will have the craze of Dhoom 3.

    Despite Dhoom 3 going above 30 crore without a holiday does not mean this is the norm and other biggies will repeat this, a 30 crore number is still more realistic for a holiday while a 20 crore type figure for a non holiday but what is encouraging is that it shows if the product is right then there is no need for a holiday. The holiday benefit to Dhoom 3 will be at best around 12 crore nett with the first week getting a boost by around 7 crore nett and around 5 crore nett will come in second week due to the New Year period. This 12 crore benefit is a paltry sum considering the huge business it will do in the final count.

    There is a scene in Dhoom3 where Sahir confronts Samar in front of a mirror – the way the scene is shot , the dialogues and the acting. If this is not greatness – then nothing in Hindi cinema is.

    Dhoom 3 Second Friday Business

    Saturday 28th December 2013 11.30 IST

    Boxofficeindia.Com Trade Network

    Dhoom 3 continues its dream run as it collected around 10 crore nett as per early estimates on day eight. The collections are little lower than the eighth day of 3 Idiots but that is because it was a national holiday for 3 Idiots on day eight. It is the second highest day eight collections of all time.

    The weekend should go on to do record business as there will be a jump in weekend business for Dhoom 3 which was not there for 3 Idiots. The second weekend record is 33 crore approx for 3 Idiots and Dhoom 3 has chances to get near the 40 crore nett mark or even go over depending on Saturday and Sunday growth.

    Dhoom 3 has grossed 184 crore nett approx in eight days in its hindi version which is close to the lifetime business of the third highest grosser ever Ek Tha Tiger. The top two are Chennai Express and 3 Idiots.

      First, BOI has very less difference with official numbers (<5 crores)
      2nd, they go totally orgasmic and rules out any advantages due to holiday factor (Christmas, year end holidays etc etc). and other factors like no compeition whatsover ( 5 open weeks).

    Dhoom 3 Second Saturday Business
    Sunday 29th December 2013 14.00 IST
    Boxofficeindia.Com Trade Network

    Dhoom 3 grossed around 11.50 crore nett on Saturday taking its second weekend business to 21.50 crore nett. The growth on Saturday of 15% was lower than what blockbuster films show on the second Saturday but this is probably due to the fact the collections at the start of the second week of Dhoom 3 are 30-40% higher than the other other blockbusters of the last few years.

    The film should still beat the 33 crore nett weekend record of Three idiots though will not get to 40 crore nett for the second weeeknd. This second weekend record has stood for four years and nothing has even come close to beating as no film has even managed a 25 crore nett second weeeknd since 3 Idiots.

      Truly mate, they continue to amaze me with their commentary.

      They conveniently forgot that Dhoom3 has no competition at all – CE lost more than half of its screens due to OUATIMD in 2nd week (in fact from day 7 itself)

  115. mate 8 years ago

    Anyway for the first time, BOI and Taran have the same figures for a big film like D:3. They have 5 cr difference after 1st weekend, but monday onward, they have literally same figures throughout the week till now. Taran’s 9-day collection is 200.44 cr (Hindi), and that of BOI is 195.50 If we assume their ‘estimates’ as actuals. By the way, Aamir’s fans start loving him even more after giving ‘actual’ figures by Yashraj on request of Aamir. ๐Ÿ˜€

  116. narad_muni 8 years ago

    BOI says – “This second weekend record has stood for four years and nothing has even come close to beating as no film has even managed a 25 crore nett second weeeknd since 3 Idiots.”

    Now YJHD did 28.5 and K3 did 27..wht abt that? (thanks to Sanket for the information)
    Infact CE wud hv also done close to 30 at least if OUATIMD wudn’t hv taken away more than half of the screens…anymore proof required that BOI is biased towards Aamir n acting as his PR?

On Sunday one of my friend went for the movie and more than 70 % of theater was empty in the evening show in Mumbai. From where these nos. are coming ? there were many in TQ who were looking for 2nd time watch, have they gone for it? have they seen the %ge filling of any M’plex or SS ?

      agreed. and note that boi reported even higher number than producers on some days. anyway bo in india is totally corrupt.its a waste of time to analyse it beyond a point.the film should recover its cost thats enough. beyond that, no one remembers any films BO gross after 5 years.

    Dhoom 3 collected around 3 crore nett on its third Friday. The third week will not see any records as Three idiots collected a huge 33 crore nett in its third week but still the collections will be excellent for Dhoom 3.

    The second highest total for the third week is a little over 19 crore nett by yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani and Dhoom 3 should be able to beat that figure. The film has had an extraordinary run over the first two weeks so it is inevitable that the film will slow a bit.

    The film will beat the previous all time high grosser Chennai express by more than 30%. Surprisingly the out performance has come in East Punjab where it will set a new high by around 50% and this is despite the cold weather.

    Box Office: Aamir Khanโ€™s multiplier theory

    The recently released Aamir Khan starrer Dhoom 3 generated massive collections at the box-office breaking multiple records. While we at Bollywood Hungama take a look at how each film fares at the box-office in comparison to the previous release, Aamir Khan threw open yet another comparative metric.

    According to Aamir, โ€œTo measure a filmโ€™s success, you need to see the weekend figures and compare it with the total collection. Like 3 idiots did Rs. 40 crores on the weekend and the total business was Rs. 202 crores, so the weekend multiplied by 5, is the behavior of the film which is very good. That shows people have gone again and again to see the film. Jo film teen din mein 100 crore karein aur total mein 200 crore karein, then that film is not good.โ€

    In this report while comparing the quality of movies, we introduce a Metric โ€“ Weekend to Lifetime Multiple for the 100 crore club. According to this comparison, a higher multiple indicates strong content and therefore longevity at cinemas, which in turn signifies footfalls being attracted in subsequent weeks.

    From this analysis, Shah Rukh Khanโ€™s two films Ra.One and Jab Tak Hai Jaan rank at the bottom of the list while his recent hit Chennai Express comes in at number 17.

    Rank Movie Name Opening Weekend (Cr.) Lifetime (Cr.) Weekend to Lifetime Multiple
    1 3 Idiots 40.65 202.47 4.98
    2 Bhaag Milkha Bhaag 32.3 108.93 3.37

    4 Barfi! 34.60 112.15 3.24
    5 Singham 30.98 100.30 3.24
    6 Golmaal 3 33.58 106.34 3.17
    7 Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani 62.11 188.57 3.04
    8 Ready 40.65 119.78 2.95
    9 Ghajini 39.02 114.00 2.92
    10 Dabangg 48.50 138.88 2.86

    hahahahahaha………!! ab ye bhi nos. ki baat karne laga.

  141. Anjanpur685Miles 8 years ago

    Aamir puts another myth to rest with DHoom3 BO and its trending.

    ..that his movies need critics support.

  142. alfa.one 8 years ago

    Aamir has also maintained the fact with Dhoom 3 that he needs festival with 3 clear weeks for good nos. at BO in addition to have talented directors, big production house, very good cinematographers and technicians…!

  143. narad_muni 8 years ago

    I accept that D3 may have been liked by many though I can’t seem to find them around me.
    But, this was a dream release for Aamir –
    Extended holiday period, highest budget, huge hype, biggest release ever, franchise value, no competition for 3 weeks, no big film for 5 weeks.
    I don’t think Aamir or anyone else will see such a dream release soon.

    So, for a movie to be breaking D3’s record, it has to be loved by the audience. With D3 kind of WOM, it cant cross this number at least not in an year or 2.

    • alfa.one 8 years ago

      @narad_muni – it was more for its technicality and visual excellence rather than Aamir starter and Aamir also must be knowing this or else what can one say about Talaash which was far far superior product to this crap where the acting from him was top notch and the story also, except climax.

      • narad_muni 8 years ago

        yeah, kinda agree. I think lot of ppl enjoyed the OTT action scenes along with top quality production values

    • Ipman 8 years ago

      but as per aamirs own parameters, d3 has grossly underperformed on trending. what about all those movies which were front loaded like d3 and had big initials? are they successfu now by trending theory propagandists ๐Ÿ˜€

      • Anjanpur685Miles 8 years ago

        as per aamir’s own words: weekend x 2 lifetime is bad
        weekend x 3 is good. And D3 is doing weekend x 3

        • Ipman 8 years ago

          can you give the link where he said what you quoted above?

          “The actor continued saying, โ€œThe best yardstick to see how your film has fared is to check how many weekends has the film run. A film that is heavily performed will earn for multiple weekends. In my opinion it shows how consistently the film has earned.โ€”


          • Anjanpur685Miles 8 years ago

            He said it somewhere on some interview before release of D3. I dont recall who was the host – but clearly remember the line – weekend x 3 is good, weekend x 4 is very good and weekend x 5 is out of the world. Ask mate – he keeps track of these things more than me.
