Jab tak Hai Jaan and Son of Sardaar Box office collections thread

Sputnik,

Request you to make it sticky for a few days. Would like everyone to post all box office numbers, discussions, predictions, estimates in this thread.

The story so far – Day 1 domestic business .
Jab Tak hai Jaan opened to 2500 screens while Son of Sardar got 2000 screens.

According to official numbers, Jab tak hai jaan did 15.23 corers and Son of Sardar did 10.73 croores.
Please note that these are official numbers and hence should be taken with a pinch of salt.

According to BOXOFFICEINDIA , the most trusted box office site of India, Jab tak Hai Jaan did 12.5 – 12.75 crores while Son of Sardar did 8.5 crores. These are only estimates from BOXOFFICEINDIA and the final numbers are still awaited which could be different, may be a bit higher than the estimates.

It is clear that Jab Tak hai Jaan is doing great in multiplexes of major cities while Son of Sardar is doing well in Single screens of mass areas, particular north and west.

Territory-wise, Jab Tak Hai Jaan leads in Mumbai, CP, Delhi/UP, Bengal, Nizam, South while Son of Sardar leads in Punjab, Rajasthan and CI.

Day 1 Overseas business
Jab tak hai jaan did a huge business of $1.3 million on its first day in overseas.
UK – ยฃ158,000
US -$330,000
UAE – $414,000
ROW – $300,000
TOTAL – $1,300,000

Considering it is a mid-week release, the numbers are fabulous. The weekend business will be humongous and I am sure it will challenge My Name is Khan and 3 Idiots in overseas (considering their release in 1st phase only). I am expecting $15million or 75-80 crores from overseas.
Son of Sardar got swept by the Jab Tak Hai Jaan wave in overseas. It managed record numbers in Pakistan of $42000 but that is because Jab Tak Hai Jaan did not open there. Jab Tak hai Jaan opens in Pakistan on Thursday. Overall, Son of Sardar’s prospect overseas looks bleak and I don’t think it will do more than $5-6 million.

Day 2 domestic numbers update
Today, as expected, both films are on rocking and huge jump is expected. The total business is likely to cross 40 crores as predicted in my earlier thread LINK TO MY PREDICTIONS THREAD
Early expectation is 22-25 crores for Jab Tak Hai Jaan and 15-16 crores for Son of Sardar.

A word on the lifetime business
I had earlier predicted around 150 crores for Jab Tak Hai Jaan and 95-100 crores for Son of Sardar, considering decent Word-of-mouth. Right now, the WOM seems to be mixed and is difficult to understand. It will become clear by Thursday-Friday and then I will revise the predictions, if required. For now, it looks like Jab Tak hai Jaan won;t cross 150 crores and Son of Sardar won’t cross 100 crores. Let’s see!

Cheers
~Narad! ๐Ÿ™‚

    My OG Preds were,

    JTHJ – 120cr
    SOS – 95/100cr

    I would have Liked too Add a lot to this Post of Whatever Little I Know but Just Not in the Right Frame of Mind ATM.
    ๐Ÿ™

    I will try and be a Behind the Scenes Spectator now to JTHJ’s BO.

    The ‘Content’ Failure of JTHJ has been a Huge Blow!

    p.s – Might Try and See SOS in 2nd Week if WOM is Good and If I can Save Around Rs.100/-

      ‘Jab Tak Hai Jaan’ is Shah Rukh Khan’s biggest opener ever
      New Delhi: Early trends suggest that ‘Jab Tak Hai Jaan’ has become Shah Rukh Khan’s biggest opener. Trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweets, “#JTHJ India biz [15.23 cr nett] is *highest ever* for any film released on Laxmi puja day. It is also @iamsrk ‘s biggest opener so far.”

      The film has done excellent business on the first day despite getting mixed reviews

  2. Shinji 7 years ago

    I dont understand box office. Never been my cup of tea.

    But i feel

    JTHJ = 150 cr India.
    SOS= 100 cr India.

  3. Baba Ji 7 years ago

    someone who rejects tarans BO numbers wants us to believe his screen numbers.

    This is the BOI link (the “most trusted” site as you called it)

    JTHJ – 2600

    SOS – 1500

    now i am sure you can do all the calculations about the screen difference % and the collection differnce %. I leave that to you ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • Shinji 7 years ago

      so suppose it was more close than there is a good possibility SOS would have ended with equal or more numbers at box office.

      • Baba Ji 7 years ago

        well yrf knew it probably.hence the “ett deal” with the exhibitors for jthj.

        • Shinji 7 years ago

          and baba it is interesting that no one is taking on Salman say on EID, or Christmas… but everyone’s ready to take on SRK…

          that says a lot about the fact how vulnerable he is at BO right now.

          • Baba Ji 7 years ago

            yes i think sputnik made this point in some thread months ago. you wouldnt normally expect someone like ajay to dare clash with srk-yrf on diwali. may be ajay’s recent spree of hits gave him the confidence to have a go at him.

    • mate 7 years ago

      Baba Ji, I think that is old article (6th Nov) about screen count. At that time, even Taran said the same, as none of them knew about APL’s tactics. Once BOI give their weekend or weekly figures, the screen count will be clear.

      • Baba Ji 7 years ago

        BOI said the range will be similar even during release. it has been same for JTHJ (2500). you think it is practically possible for a straight increase of 500 screens for SOS especially when their plea also got rejected?

        • mate 7 years ago

          I did’nt mean that, my point is that SOS was always intended to release on 2000+ screen. And all that issue created just to get equal or even more space than JTHJ. That’s all. Anyway, the time is not far away, every thing will be crystal clear.

          • Baba Ji 7 years ago

            i agree that sos is just a distraction. ultimately ,jthj is an srk film and it has to compete with itself and the expectations that were set before release.

    • Author
      narad_muni 7 years ago

      Baba ji,

      I belive u r trying to act naive..
      Anyways, earlier Taran also said the same numbers as BOI but later revised it after release. Expect BOI to do that very soon.
      And yes, SOS actually managed to release the movie is quite a few theatres which play regional movies and that’s why the screen count increased.

      Happy Diwali!

      • Baba Ji 7 years ago

        You may keep changing your parameters . anycase day 2 figure of jthj is out. 19 cr. Its clear which way the film is going.

  4. Sneha 7 years ago

    I think JTHJ max 125cr
    SOS 85-95cr

  5. cr7 7 years ago

    Jab Tak Hai Jaan Day Two Figures

    Jab Tak Hai Jaan collected around 19-19.50 crore nett on its second day as per early estimates taking its two day figure to around 32 crore nett. The film showed big growth all over apart from the circuits which were strong on day one.

    The growth on day two is around 50% which is good but mass circuits did not show the growth they should have. Going by the trends on Wednesday, the film is likely to fair best in the big cities like Mumbai, Delhi, Kolkata and Bangalore.

    Basically the clash has split the market Jab Tak Hai Jaan set to do better in some pockets and Son Of Sardaar set to do better in other pockets.

  6. cr7 7 years ago

    Son Of Sardaar Day Two Figures

    Son Of Sardaar did very well on its second day showing a 70% jump on day two as it collected around 14-14.50 crore nett as per early estimates taking its two day total to 23 crore nett approx.

    The film is doing very well in East Punjab, Rajasthan, Bihar, CI and Rajasthan. The collections in Delhi/UP are also super strong in terms of occupancies though the figures are not huge due to the chain of theatres being low collecting theatres. It will have a good run in Delhi/UP.

    The business is not so strong in West Bengal, Mysore and Tamil Nadu/Kerala but being a North film that is expected.

    • Baba Ji 7 years ago

      I bet if SOS had an equal release as JTHJ, it may have grossed the same collections.look at the difference in even the day 2 figures. and its a below avg film i heard. It needed rohit shetty. I dont think the difference in lifetime between both the films will be very significant.

      • sputnik 7 years ago

        People said Ajay was not a star without Rohit Shetty and nothing compared to SRK but seems like Son of Sardaar is giving a good fight despite less number of screens and less collecting screens (admitted by even BOI). Since there was no Rohit Shetty involved this time all credit goes to Ajay. It also proves one more thing – masala is in and it is in big time.

    Xclusiv: ‘Jab Tak Hai Jaan’ leads by a huge margin in Overseas
    By Taran Adarsh
    In the clash of the two biggies, JAB TAK HAI JAAN and SON OF SARDAAR, JAB TAK HAI JAAN has raced ahead by a massive margin. JAB TAK HAI JAAN is faring exceptionally well in U.K., U.S.A., U.A.E. and Australia. In New Zealand, where the film opened on Wednesday, the film has created History by being the first Hindi film to open at No 1 position, overtaking the business of Hollywood biggies on *that particular day*.

    SON OF SARDAAR is better than the Ajay Devgn starrers released in the past, but the clash with Shah Rukh Khan in Overseas has hit the film hard. Tamil film THUPPAKKI is shining in Overseas, despite the overpowering competition posed by JAB TAK HAI JAAN and SON OF SARDAAR. Excellent!

    Cr7,
    Thanks for posting the Day 2 figures from BOI.

    Just to summarize –
    Day 2 domestic numbers
    Estimates from BOXOFFICEINDIA.com
    Jab tak hai jaan = 19-19.5 cores,
    Son of Sardar – 14-14.5 crores.

    2-day total (Estimates from Boxofficeindia)
    Jab tak hai jaan = 31.5 – 32.5 crores.
    Son of Sardar = 22.5-23.5 croes

    As I said before, these are estimated and the final numbers could be different

  9. mate 7 years ago

    It’s regretful that APL using all the cheap tactics to reduce JTHJ importance, by deceiving the media/audience showing less number of screens, It had all the advantage being a masala movie that is a hot cake at BO these days, the dream run of it’s leading star at BO (according to his standard), yet come with 30% lower collection than it’s rival at domestic market. On the other hand, JTHJ being a romantic movie, the least trended genre these days, the worst phase of it’s leading star at BO (according to his standard), yet came as a winner by a margin, while in overseas, it’s totally one-sided war. Just look at the UK collection for both movies, the key market of overseas, JTHJ totally washout SOS by earning more than 4 times of its collection.

    • Baba Ji 7 years ago

      none of the “tactics” of sos would have mattered if jthj had merit in itself. did jaaneman matter to don? ultimately a film competes only with itself and its own expectations.

      • mate 7 years ago

        Yeah sure Sir, It really effects JTHJ collection as far as opening is concerned. That Jaaneman-Don comparison is totally out of place. And that merit thing have nothing to do with BO collection, otherwise Swades, Maqbool, Dharm kind of movies should have been blockbuster. And the craps like Ghajini, ETT and Bodyguard, HF should have been disasters. One more thing, JTHJ is not a routine love story that appeals only to a certain class of audience even within genre core audience, this competition is very much like OSO and Saawariya, the difference is, OSO is SOS and Saawariya is JTHJ. So infact it’s OSO starring Ajay, versus Saawariya starring SRK. Btw though many consider Saawariya a crapfest, but IMO Saawariya was a brilliant movie so as JTHJ.

        narad_muni 7 years ago

        Baba Ji,
        I agree,,,As I said ealier, it JTHJ does less than 140 in India, it is an underperformer.

        And it doesnt look like doing so

        • Ritz 7 years ago

          For the kind of film JTHJ looked from trailer to me, these numbers are really good.

          Mr Yash Chopra’s death will add some 10-20cr more to the collections.

  10. Aditya007 7 years ago

    Agree with @Sneha JTHJ max 125+cr & SoS 90+cr
    And according to My frnd, really Movie is Too Long & Boring . rated 2/5 & about SOS isn’t verygood also,but its definatly One time watch 3/5

  11. Reddemon 7 years ago

    Went to watch SOS and came out aftr 1 hr. Waste of Rs. 65
    JTHJ 2nd day collection is very good.
    Sos collectn are also not bad and the reason why it is collecting so much is
    – masala genre and local flavour
    – all the salman/akki/aamir fans are busy supporting/watching Sos just because it clashed with a Srk movie.
    the difference b/w the screen space of SOS and JTHJ is not much but the diff in collection is big.

    • Ritz 7 years ago

      “Went to watch SOS and came out aftr 1 hr. Waste of Rs. 65”

      You only are responsible for it. Why didnt u watch rest of the movie?

  13. Ritz 7 years ago

    On twitter Taran Adrash is thanking his followers of appreciating his “efforts” – i.e. sitting doing nothing waiting for Producer numbers.

    And then he says …”Diwali festivities still on, hence taking time to compile data.” as if he is doing something

    • mate 7 years ago

      Ritz, Taran is always waiting for producers’ numbers especially for big releases. It happened at the time of ETT release, and it happens now, so it’s not surprising. Most of Srk fans including me, always go by BOI numbers because their numbers are the most dependable, no matter If it comes low from other sources or our expectations, unlike other stars’ fans, who manipulates figures, alter the source every time that suits to their priorities.

  14. FS 7 years ago

    Now I doubt the combined total of both films would exceed 186cr ๐Ÿ˜› One more thing to notice is that Sos is catching up with JTHJ collections with half its screen counts in areas that are not given much importance as premium single screens are occupied by jthj. Any ways in some areas like gurgaon Sos is doing better business in Multiplex than jthj.

  15. mate 7 years ago

    SOS is catching up with JTHJ collection in areas only where It has been given more screen space. All this screen counts discussion is useless and started by the ‘great’ APL to deceive people. Whether a movie get A class centres or C class centres, multiplex or single screens, does’nt have any importance and nobody cares about that until the clash happens. The important thing is what are the total screen counts, and the fact is that APL continuosly make the audience foolish by giving wrong picture about screen counts. Now it’s clear that there is not much a differnce in total screen counts i-e around 15%. On the other hand, difference in collection is around 35%. And as per reliable sources, JTHJ is on its way to find repeat audience, so looks like it’s Lambi Race ka Ghoda hopefully.

    • FS 7 years ago

      Mate – Don’t get over excited and stop blaming APL, wait till this week and you will know kitni lambi race ka ghoda hai ๐Ÿ˜›

      • mate 7 years ago

        @FS I am not over-excited, why are you assuming things based on you pre- mindset. ๐Ÿ˜›
        I like the movie immensely and that’s enough for me. I am here just to point out the people who manipulates facts and figures. ๐Ÿ˜‰
        Ofcourse I pray for the movie’s success as It really deserve that IMO, and the positive WOM all over clearly indicate that. But did every time it happen when deserving movies gets gold and undeserving gets nothing, I don’t think so. But I am quite happy that Srk did JTHJ, I am quite happy that he kept himself away from the craps like TIgers, Rathores, Bodyguards and Dabanggs. On the other day, a certain Tiger earn 186 cr and JTHJ might fell under 100 cr, I still prefer him doing 10 more JTHJs and alikes and rejects, even 100 Tigers being offered to him.

        • Shinji 7 years ago

          i guess SRK is not that far from Tigers, singhams etc… his next movie is

          CHENNAI EXPRESS WITH ROHIT SHETTY

          • FS 7 years ago

            mate – JTHJ is worse than Tiger, Bodyguards, dhobi ghats, singhams, rathores etc… and if you like Srk to do such movies and pray for its success then you are asking too much. Anyways respect your opinion but your opinion is limited to yourself ๐Ÿ˜‰

  16. Shinji 7 years ago

    What is the prediction for thursday guys ?

    I feel with every passing moment SOS is catching up with JTHJ… so this da might be more close

    • Baba Ji 7 years ago

      Its rumoured that Bal Thackeray died today at 4 am in the morning. so most offices and shops are shut down. expect a drop in collections in atleast mumbai area.

      • Ritz 7 years ago

        @Baba – is it a rumor or real thing?

        If he dies and they declare it openly then it will surely affect MumbaI Circuit business for the day and next day also.

        Not interested in both these movies and also BO of them but if Bala Saheb dies, it will be a loss for Marathi pride. But thankfully Raj is there who can stand up against bhaiyyas gundagiri – I think that MNS and SS will unite.

        • TopShot 7 years ago

          No babaji as per reports that was just a rumor… hope Bala saheb recovers fast..

  17. mate 7 years ago

    Taran tweets 19.54 cr Wed and 15.25 cr Tues, Total: 34.75 cr (Two days) for JTHJ.
    I think BOI will revise it’s Tues figures later as they also have the same thursday as of Taran.
    Same for SOS, i-e 14cr Wed and 10 cr Tues, Total: 24 cr.

    Day 3 update
    SOS is rocking today and collections are going to be huge, much more than Day 1. I think it will come at 11-12 crores.
    It looks like from Friday onwards, SOS collections will be more than JTHJ which is a shame for SRK and YRF.
    I will not be surprised if today’s collections of SOS match JTHJ or even cross it.

    • durvasha rishi 7 years ago

    SOS is having decent WOM, nothing great but problem is JTHJ is having bad WOM ๐Ÿ™

    I feel the WOM for JTHJ may be similar to RA.ONE the way collections are falling. RA.ONE did whatever it did due to solo release during holiday but JTHJ does not have that advantage. People have the option of watching SOS, which is a timepass entertainer

    Seriously, today is a close race between JTHJ and SOS as to which film comes on top.
    But from tomorrow onwards, SOS will race ahead and outgross JTHJ in the long run.

    A real shame for SRK! How the mighty has fallen

    • mate 7 years ago

    • sauravjha 7 years ago

      “A real shame for SRK! How the mighty has fallen” ??? Unbelievably naive statement from u sir! I mean is it that difficult to understand that every film has its own life and hence its own audience n collections! SOS is just cashing up on wats the recent trend in bollywood its mistake on ur part to expect srk to make jthj a huge box office blockbuster! Which was the last romantic movie which had this kind of opening and will end up making around 120-130 collectionS?? Around `130 was always the realistic margin for jthj and around 100 for sos has srk failed in it??

      Has he failed to even open a movie ala Yuvraj/Patiala house? NO then how has he fallen? I bet that, That day will never come when he will fail to open a movie which our many superstars failed to do and that is the criteria of a superstar! Opening a movie!

      Regarding Wom another naive statement is comparing its wom to Ra.one! Dont go by networking sites sir go according to ground reality and reality is everybody and everyone is saying its a good one time watch and NOT a single person has had to say a bad coment abt srk’s acting in it! Yday my family went to see it and as expected ladies loved it my brother didnt like it much which is expected since its length is long for today’s youth but that never really is target audience of srk romantic starrer and girls and ladies have loved it! That’s it mission accomplished.

      PS:- i know u r srk fan but my suggestion to u wud be to stop going by social networking sites and go by ground reality cos u r making it sound as if it has already crashed n bombed which is a dream away from reality.

    JTHJ overseas update: Record-breaking numbers

    The only saving grace for JTHJ are the overseas numbers which are simply outstanding. It has done $2.5 million in 2 days with a mid-week limited release.It might do $9-10 million by this Sunday itself.

    Tell me, where do you get the figures? The last shows of both films has not started and yet you insist on mouthing nonsense.

    Its alright to hope for SOS outgrossing JTHJ but to spew it as fact is shocking.

  24. Jasper 7 years ago

    ” sau sunaar ki ek sardaar ki”

  26. Reddemon 7 years ago

    Those expecting SOS to outgross JTHJ will be highly disappointed. My advance condolences to them.
    And who said that JTHJ is carrying bad WOM??
    It has a decent-good WOM and only prblm is length OTOH Sos has bad WOM.

  27. Jasper 7 years ago

    No, SOS is not carrying bad WOM. Both films are carrying decent WOM.

    And this despite having 4 more shows.

    Narad_muni, its high time you give up your useless ranting. And sputnik, I expected far better from you.

    • sputnik 7 years ago

      You need to relax. I just commented what Ajay Devgn tweeted.

      From your link itself –

      First day JTHJ was 18 to 13 of SOS (approx)
      Second day JTHJ is 27 to 28 of SOS (approx)

      Yeah it has 4 more shows but look at the jump from day 1 to day 2. So SOS overtook JTHJ on second day and this proves that if SOS had equal shows in high paying screens then it may have grossed the same collections.

      • mate 7 years ago

        Sputnik ji, this is not JTHJ fault that SOS did’nt open well on 1st day, so big jump was inevitable for SOS. ANd both movies were having 95-100% collection on its 2nd day, so you can’t expect JTHJ to collect more than its screen space.

    @Jasper,
    Why are you getting so hyper? LOL!
    I am a SRK fan..if you dont belive ask FS or Sputnik, ๐Ÿ™‚

    The prediction is based on early trends. I still think those are accurate. But may not be. We have to wait for the actuals tomorrow. That’s why they are predictions ๐Ÿ™‚

    Today being holiday in North India, where SOS is strong, it has very strong collections and might overtake JTHJ or be very close.

    Friday will give a clear picture as it is a proper working day.
    And personally, I do not want SOS to outgross JTHJ at any cost.

    Now chill ๐Ÿ™‚

    • mate 7 years ago

      Muni ji, ap aisa mazaaq na kiya kare, kisi ka dil itna solid nahi bhi hota. ๐Ÿ˜€
      Anyway, go by the prediction, Tango (NG) predict 14.5-15.5 cr Thursday for JTHJ and 9.5-11.5 cr for SOS. One two other sources also predict 15 cr figure for JTHJ. However, they said the real drop will be seen on Friday.

    • sputnik 7 years ago

      This is stereotyping and may be politically incorrect – In India there are a lot of middle class and lower middle class people who go to a movie for only entertainment. They dont care about the aesthetics or some Oscar winning screenplay. All they want is entertainment or time pass and these includes seeti maar dialogues, item numbers, comedy and OTT action. They will not like a slow paced movie or a boring movie even if it is good.

      Overseas audiences on the other hand are usually well to do money wise and they are more discerning and wait for the reviews.

      Mysore is in India but doesn’t it behave just like overseas?

          Aamir owns Mysore territory.

          ๐Ÿ˜€

          And this is the territory where most experimental films earn their most. (small to medium budget to non-star films). Dont compare it with regressive/mass territory like Kolkatta.

          • Baba Ji 7 years ago

            ritz – you are a true MNS fan ๐Ÿ˜€ .keeps making regionalistic comments. in another thread,you made some comment on bhaiyyas being gundas ๐Ÿ˜‰

            But I was not talking in hawa for experimental/small films business in Mysore. Thats a fact.

      • Baba Ji 7 years ago

        gimme a break.the biggest hit in overseas arent really the greatest films made in bw! a pst doesnt do as well in overseas as in India. same for kahaani, OMG and other films.

        Alos, what i think is the overseas audience ,especially those who havent visited India in ages have a sort of “primitive” idea about how things happen here.Many there think a dch/znmd/WUS has unreal issues and does not represent India. on the other hand , something as cliched as Ishaqzaade seems “earthy” to them.

        • sputnik 7 years ago

          Smaller movies like PST and Kahaani don’t release much overseas. GOW did not even release here properly. Its usually the big star’s movies that release overseas.

          Overseas audience also can be divided into people who left India long time ago and people who left India recently.

          The older โ€œprimitiveโ€ ones prefer the Yash Chopra and KJo movies while the new ones like dch/znmd and 3 Idiots.

          • Baba Ji 7 years ago

            so one can assume its the overseas public that is less informed and more “desperate” sort of , to see any hindi film releasing on big screens.

    Day 3 estimates – updated
    It seems JTHJ has been able to hold on to the lead. Estimates are 13-14 crores for JTHJ and 11-12 croes for SOS.
    The trend is becoming clear – In Mysore, Bengal, Nizam JTHJ is leading by a huge margin. Also, in other big cities like Delhi and Mumbai it hs having a clear lead.
    In tier 2 cities like Jaiput, Indore, Nagpur, Lucknow JTHJ and SOS are going neck-neck.
    But as you move to the smaller cities particularly in mass belts like CI, Rajasthan, Gujarat, UP, SOS is having a clear lead.
    As I said, Friday will give a clear picture. But I feel JTHJ will be able to maintain its lead over SOS on Friday and Saturday because of the weekend business in multiplexes whereas SOS will show a big jump on Sunday and challenge JTHJ for the top honors.

    Friday will see a fall in business as it is a working day all over India and the business in North will see a big fall as it was a holiday there yesterday due to Bhai Dooj

    Son Of Sardaar Third Day Business

    Son Of Sardaar collected around 11.50 crore nett on its third day as per early estimates. The three day total for the film is around 34.50 crore nett. The film is super strong in Delhi/UP, East Punjab, Bihar, CP Berar, CI and Rajasthan.

    In Delhi/UP, East Punjab, CI and Rajasthan the film will emerge the biggest hit of Ajay Devgn’s career. Bihar may also make the list. The day figures in the above circuits ensure the film will sustain in these circuits for the next two weeks.

    Out of the other circuits, Mumbai is pretty good as Gujarat is strong and business in Nizam is also fair while Mysore, West Bengal and Tamil/Nadu are weak.

    The three day territorial breakdown will be published on the website at around 16.00 IST.

      • sauravjha 7 years ago

        Really? I dnt think so test for masala movies begin on weekdays and it will be interesting to see if its target audience come to watch sos whereas jthj is being liked by its target audience hows it inevitable? plss keeping aside kya hota etc etc.

      • sauravjha 7 years ago

        kyunki its like asking sos ek masala movie na hokar romantic movie hoti to kya hota? srk vs ajay 2007 me hota to kya hota? levae that aside and see how both movies are doin for themselves and then find inevitability.

    Jab Tak Hai Jaan Third Day Business

    Jab Tak Hai Jaan grossed around 13.50 crore nett on its third day as per early estimates which takes the three day business of the film to around 45 crore nett.

    The film has done good to very good business all over initially apart from Bihar. CI is also on the lower side. The best business for the film has come in South India and West Bengal as these markets have been a one horse race.

    The South and West Bengal do tend to drop faster than the traditional Hindi markets so how well it can sustain in Mumbai, Delhi/UP, east Punjab and Central markets over the next three days will hugely important for its long term business.

    The three day territorial breakdown will be published on the website at around 16.00 IST.

      • sauravjha 7 years ago

        collection down from 19.5 to 13.5 is bad wom and sos from 16 se 11 hua to good wom? good job on boi if they r trying to hide both wom’s..

        • Baba Ji 7 years ago

          see the commentaries of BOI on sos and jthj. it is using words like “super strong” (present tense) and “will ensure ” (future tense) for it and has predicted to sustain in many circuits.

          compare this to JTHJ commentary, they are not sure if this would sustain .There is usage of words like “has done” (present tense) but no comment on the future.

    Shilac,
    We can Add Punjab, Bihar and CP as SOS Strongholds.

    Ritz,
    I Agree with you what you Said abt the Mysore Crkt but Don’t Forget that Post the 2006 Phase, Delhi-NCR-Punjab too have played a Very Important Part in the Success of Many Small Films and it’s Common Knowledge.

    From RDB in ’06 to VD, TWM, PKP etc. in 2011/12.

    Kolkatta and Gujarat help more in Comedies.

    Mumbai Accomodates all Genres and Any Movie.

    I strongly belive that if One Makes a Fantastically Scripted Movie with Controlled Budget and Decent Promotion than One can get an Easy Success of 45cr+ on the Strength of 6-8 Cities irrespective of Stars and Chartbuster Songs.

  41. mate 7 years ago

    So according to BOI estimates, JTHJ collects 13.50 cr and SOS collects 11.50 on 3rd day.
    JTHJ 3 days collection (estimate) = 12.75+19.50+13.50 = 45.75 cr
    SOS 3 days collection (estimate) = 8.5+14.50+11.50 = 34.50 cr

    So the 3-days territorial breakdown of each movie will be updated at 16:00 IST. That’s good.

A BOG NO is the answer and dats wat i was saying to narad how can he say dat mighty have fallen? Has he failed to open any of his movies ala Salman in HIS struggling days?? or Akshay for Patiala House?? NO he will never fail to do so where he is lacking is a universaly like movie ala rnbdj! Which he is almost sure of wid CE and HNY those two r already blockbusters!

      Can u explain to me why salman was struggling to even open movies in 2000- 2010?? if u can then u will clearly know the difference. Answer is simple he is doing rite movies at rite time as simple as that.

    Guyz,
    I was bang on with my predictions for Thursday (13-14 for JTHJ and 11-12 for SOS). Pt on my back ๐Ÿ˜€

    It is clear that both films are having decent WOM with SOS having a better WOM but even JTHJ is avergae-to-decent WOM.
    Fridday will make it very clear.

    WOM update form OrmaxMedia/ShaileshKapoor
    Shailesh Kapoor โ€@shaileshkapoor

    Better than RaOne, similar levels as Don 2 RT @igknightor: @shaileshkapoor sir WOM of JTHJ better than ra1/don2 ??

    Based on these early WOM trends, both films should end up at roughly the same domestic BO number, given the headstart

    WOM (Word of Mouth) scores from the first two days of JTHJ and SOS are out. SOS right up there with the best of the year, JTHJ above average

    JTHJ is ATM with AP, HF2, RR…Let’s See if it Touches 125-130+

    It culdn’t Even Break Don2’s Weekend.

    • mate 7 years ago

      @ Serenzy bro, totally agree upon the comparison you made. But don’t you think it’s an achievement for an outdated genre to go neck to neck with the mass-appealing genre i-e masala genre. I think It’s a big achievement, and the whole credit goes to none other than Srk, that’s the power of a real superstar. Do any other star of his generation have guts to work in a romantic movie today and moreover release it with a crowd-pleasing masala flick having a big star. I challenge these stars, whose fans boast about 185cr, 130 cr and blah blah… figures, that is less their star power and more the power of the genre and weekend era, ask any of them to work in some JTHJ and pull it off on their star power. I know they don’t dare to do that, because they already failed miserably by doing Yuvraajs, London Dreams and Jaanemans, and now they play in a much easier and safer zone.

      I think and hope the success of JTHJ will revive the romance genre once again to some extent if not thoroughly, and reduce the effect of mindless masala in the name of garbage.

      • rajesh 7 years ago

        And that mass appealing film has been released on lesser screens, does not release on most of the collecting SS where it would have done much better business.
        Wow, what an achievement for SRK-Yash Chopra-A R Rehman combo.

          The only place where SOS has suffered is UP and to some extent in Mumbai area.
          In various places, the release size is similar.
          Also, it got more shows because of shorter duration even in multiplexes of metro cities.

          Just check out the collections in Nagpur …SOS has more theatres than Jthj.

    Early trends for Friday

    First, a disclaimer. These predictions are based on early trends…no accuracy claimed.
    These are just for fun and for the extra curious netizens out there, which are a plenty ๐Ÿ˜€

    Today, both films are going to drop for sure as it is a working day.
    But given that Friday evening and night shows picks up in multiplexes, JTHJ should do well.
    I do not expect SOS to close the gap any further from Thursday numbers .
    Remember, SOS has been closing the gap consistently over the last 3 days but I expect the trend to stop today.

    So, early predictions –
    JTHJ – 9-10 cr
    SOS – 7-8 Cr.

    As always, I will be updating the predictions and giving the actual numbers whenever available.

    Thanks to cr7 for posting the BOI links. This thread is a blockbuster, Indians love Box office ๐Ÿ™‚

    • mate 7 years ago

      narad_muni, what’s you first weekend and week prediction for both. I think JTHJ first weekend (6 days) will be in the range 80-85 cr, and SOS will be 65-70 cr. Do JTHJ have any chance to reach 140-150 cr. Because If JTHJ earn 105-110 cr in 1st week (10 days) then It should do at least 140 cr Lifetime. By the way, I really applaud your ‘prediction sense’ except you earlier prediction for 3rd day. ๐Ÿ˜‰

      • Author
        narad_muni 7 years ago

        Yes, the early prediction was incorrect…as it was based on a few mass circuits where SOS is crating havoc. That’s why I updated.

        Things will become clear after Friday collections.
        I expect JTHJ to do like 35-37 crores from Friday-Sunday.
        SOS can do 32-33 cores over Friday -Sunday

        So, weekend for JTJH should be 80-83 crores odd and 67-70 crores for SOS.

        From Monday, difficult to predict ..It will be easier to predict once Friday numbers are out.
        But I expect lifetime to be 125-130 crores and SOS to be 115-120 crores.

  47. Serenzy 7 years ago

    BTW, ATM, There are Only “40Movies” in B’Wood History that have Netted above 60cr and “15Movies” out of them are 100cr+.

  48. Serenzy 7 years ago

    Saurav,

    I don’t Belive in the Opening Funda for Stardom.

    For Me, Success Rate, Lifetime Nett and Audience Perception are More Imprtant and that’s what Makes Asin, Sonakshi, Katrina, Vidya Bigger Stars than Deepika, PC, Anushka,Kareena etc.

    Balan Not Making it to Top10 in Some Ormax List is the Biggest Joke of the Decade…Ash,Madhuri,Kajol above Balan.

    Guess they Missed Juhi, Raveena, Mahima, Shilpa, Sonali and Manisha Koirala.

    Diffrnce is, SRK has Less Releases.

      I agree wid ur belief on lifetime and rest of the things bro but if u r talking abt stardom or diminishing stardom then clearly u gotta see how one opens a movie cos that clearly shows how excited exactly paying audience are to see that star and in that context i dnt see anything wrong in srk (which many perdicted and are waiting for that to happen post ra.one but it didnt happen) wat he is lacking is universaly liked movie.

    jthj 13.5 sos 11.5
    gap is closing fast..

    • sauravjha 7 years ago

      IMO it is the closest it could have come to jthj, now litmus test begins today! According to reports there have been drop for both the movies today in morning shows since its working day.

  52. Serenzy 7 years ago

    Saurav Jha,

    Barfi! did 108cr, Rajneeti did 94cr, OMG! did 83cr.

    Potentially, JTHJ shud Hit the 140+ Mark than.

    Don’t Say WOM is Not Good Reason…That’s Not the Audience Fault.

    and tbh, JTHJ is Crappier than Wanted,Dabangg, Ghajini, RR, BB, OSO, RA.One, Don2, Singham, BG, ETT.

    Ready and G3 were as Bad as JTHJ.

    RA.One had a Stronger Script than JTHJ.

    • sauravjha 7 years ago

      IMO and in my little circle ppl have LIKED jthj which was not the case in RA1 and DON 2 so dnt think its crappier than
      them(wont comment on other stars films) . As for potential i dnt knw in which context u r talking about, if u r talking purely on star power thing then yes 140 + shud be target of jthj but for me i always had 130 as its target cos of the very fact that its a pure romantic movie idk after how long and also cos of competition frm sos which is masala in genre so i wont be disappointed if it does 130.

    Son Of Sardaar Fourth Day Business

    Saturday 17th November 2012 12.30 IST
    Boxofficeindia.Com Trade Network

    Son Of Sardaar collected around 8 crore nett on its fourth day. The total for four days is 42 crore nett approx.

    The film had a fall in multiplex areas as it was a working day but areas like UP, Rajasthan and CI help up strongly. The film is doing its best business in Rajasthan, the desert state is even better than East Punjab comparatively as Jab Tak Hai Jaan is doing better in some parts of East Punjab circuit.

    Gujarat is still a holiday so the film is holding up strong there enabling Mumbai circuit to put strong numbers. Rajasthan has comfortably crossed 3 crore nett while CI is at 2.25 crore which are fantastic numbers for four days and a big Sunday still to come.

    Jab Tak Hai Jaan Fourth Day Business – 10.25 crores – my prediction was damn correct ๐Ÿ™‚

    Jab Tak Hai Jaan collected around 10.25 crore nett on its fourth day. The total for four days is 55 crore nett plus

    The film held up better at multiplexes of all the big cities as compared to Son of Sardaar. Gujarat is a holiday so that circuit is holding up best. The best business is in Mumbai circuit where the film has grossed over 21.50 crore and Mysore where it has crossed 3.50 crore nett.

    Jab Tak Hai Jaan should show a healthy jump on Saturday as its stronger circuits like Mysore tend to show huge jumps on Saturday though being a Tuesday release could curtail the jump. The film at the moment is on course to hit a century over its extended ten day first week.

    • Baba Ji 7 years ago

      “The film held up better at multiplexes of all the big cities as compared to Son of Sardaar. ”

      LOL! First BOI says SOS is not holding well in plexes and then taking it as a std to show jthj is doing well at plexes. ๐Ÿ˜€
      BOI is always fun to read.

      The gap between SOS and jthj is closening day by day. What happens in coming days will be very interesting to watch.

      Shilac – :applause: for your predictions. you have been excellent .good work.

        SOS did close the gap for the first 3 days but JTHJ increased the gap again on Friday as it dropped less than SOS.
        And I repeat – Saturday will see the gap getting widened further

        • Baba Ji 7 years ago

          the gap is of 2 cr on both thursday and friday for both films. Calculating fractional decrease per day and then consoling oneself is not something I am interested in when the screen count itself is 1000 apart.

    Jab Tak Hai Jaan Takes Highest Ever Opening In Pakistan

    Saturday 17th November 2012 11.30 IST
    Boxofficeindia.Com Trade Network

    Jab Tak Hai Jaan took the highest ever opening in Pakistan collecting around $100,000 on Friday and Thursday paid previews.

    The film beat records of such films as Don and Bodyguard which were previosuly the highest openers in Pakistan.

    This Pakistan market is growing for Hindi films as it was 2008 when Singh is Kinng set a record by collecting over $100,000 in a week and now we have a film collecting almost $100,000 in one day.

  76. Jasper 7 years ago

    Thursday-to-Friday comparison :-

    Drops – JTHJ = ((13.5-10.25)/13.5)*100 = 24%; SOS = ((11.5-8)/11.5)*100 = 30%

    The first time that SOS has shown worse trending than JTHJ (though not by too big a margin). Also, the gap between the films has increased slightly.

    Now comes the asli mazaa!

      I had predicted the trend reversal y’day ๐Ÿ˜€

    Saturday: early estimates

    Today, JTHJ is doing great at multiplexes and the bookings are strong in the evening and night shows.
    I am expecting 25-30% jump at least.

    SOS on the other hand might show some jump but not as much.

    Early estimates are as follows –

    JTHJ: 13+ Cr (BOI) 14+Cr (official/Taran)
    SOS: 9.5+ Cr (BOI) 11 Cr (official/Taran)

    • Jasper 7 years ago

      Truly this Diwali has been a mega-blockbuster one!

        Ritz,
        wow what an explanation?

        And its not just JTHJ SOS will also lose but impact will be more on JTHj as Mumbai was a huge earning circuit for it.

        And you forgot the clash? If the clash would not have been there, then both movies would have earned much much more.

        • Ritz 7 years ago

          Dear muni, I dont owe u an “explanation” ๐Ÿ™‚

          I dont get ur angle abt the clash. I just said whatever JTHJ will lose , it has already gained. Did I talk abt SOS? I know you are very concerned about SOS collections getting affected due to bandh – but I am not.

          Also, I think u unnecessarily added the word “fcking” for Chadda. I think you wanted to add it for Mr Bal Thackray – but u thought it will create bad atmosphere/controversy.

            Waise muni ji, I think JTHJ is a sureshot superhit on BO. But dont think it will add anything significant to SRK’s career. He should do more of Baadhshah / RNBDJ/ Paheli type of roles than these types or even the pretentious ones like mnik/cdi/swades types.

            Just my two cents

  87. mate 7 years ago

    @narad_muni
    I think you should revise your saturday/sunday prediction. ๐Ÿ˜€
    I think if the JTHJ would be expected to earn 28-30 cr earlier, I expect a loss of 10 cr for these two days. what’s your opinion.

    • Author
      narad_muni 7 years ago

      yeah.. i cant come up with revised numbers as I dont know the impact.
      But, I guess the loss to JTHJ will be in the range of 6-7 crores.
      Earlier, I was expecting a lifetime to 130-133 crores.
      Now, I will scale it down to 122-125 crores.

      Also, Mumbai was one of the strongest circuits for JTHJ and it will be impacted more than SOS.

Samar (Shah Rukh Khan), a classic loner, is not with the others of his bomb-defusing team, one of whom struggles to make sense of the tangle of wires in an explosive device at a Leh marketplace. Samar rides in on his motorbike alone, a little later, and when he gets to work, an onlooker remarks that he will not wear a bomb suit. After all, he hasnโ€™t worn one while defusing close to 100 bombs thus far โ€“ a record, which fetches him the title The Man who Cannot Die. More remarks follow that build Samar up, in our eyes, as some sort of outrageous superhero. The onlooker says, โ€œIski aankhon mein aaj tak maut ka dar nahin dekha,โ€ that heโ€™s never seen in Samarโ€™s eyes the fear of death, and he adds that Samar walks up to explosive devices as if walking into a girlfriendโ€™s arms. It all seems to be little but empty hero-giri, the kind of image-stoking, ego-massaging scenario that every big star writes into his contract.

    But slowly we see that Samar is no reckless hero, that he has a death wish, that heโ€™s really The Man who Wants to Die. For love, naturally. Yash Chopraโ€™s Jab Tak Hai Jaan (co-written by Aditya Chopra) is something of a companion piece to Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi (which the younger Chopra directed). Here too, weโ€™re treated to two flavours of Shah Rukh Khan โ€“ one silent and withdrawn, one the exuberant embodiment of life itself. Here too, we have Anushka Sharma, playing a Discovery Channel filmmaker named Akira, torn between these two personas โ€“ except that, this time, she falls for the introvert. And here too, the big guy up in the sky plays a pivotal part. This time, though, itโ€™s a different god, one who hangs on a crucifix and whom Samar refers to as Sir Jesus. In other words, weโ€™re watching Christ Ne Bana Di Jodi, which could be the title of the translation of Graham Greeneโ€™s novel The End of the Affair.

    Ritz,
    You are right…SRK needs to move on!
    He had lot of BO success and theres nothing more to prove.

    I think he is a fabulous actor as long as you have a good and strong director, he can deliver superlative performances.
    Yes, I want him to do more of Badshah, Kabhi haan Kabhi Naa, Chak De,Swades kinda roles which are not sterotypical.

    I want him to take some risks, though keeping the script in consideration, with young talented diectors .. I want him to create the middle-age hero in Bollywood…

    I am not happy with his choice of films..Chennai Express with Rohit Shetty and Happy New Year with farah Khan. most probably these movies will be box ofice monsters as those are of the audience pleasing genre…But what new they will offer? will it add anything to SRK’s reportoire? NO in capital ๐Ÿ˜€

    • Ritz 7 years ago

      Agree Muni, but if you expect all of that — u will keep on waiting forever, Better change ur fav hero. SRK will never do all of the above and behave like that.

      • mate 7 years ago

        “…Better change ur fav hero. SRK will never do all of the above and behave like that.”

        Ritz, this is the speciality of SRK fans that they are the most loyal fans amongst all. Lekin ye baat non-Srkians ko samajh nahi aa sakti, kyun k unki samajh ki limit jahan par khatam hoti he, wahan se hamari fandom aur chahat ki limit start hoti he.Bhaiyaa ye emotions ka chakkar he, aur jab baat emotions par aa jaye, to phir sub kuch un-intentionally hota hai. Srk fans Srk ki mohabbat main itne aagey badh chuke hain k wapsi k tamam raastey band ho chuke hai.

    Jab Tak Hai Jaan And Son Of Sardaar Day Five Business

    Sundday 18th November 2012 12.30 IST
    Boxofficeindia.Com Trade Network
    Jab Tak Hai Jaan and Son Of Sardaar continued to well in most areas and Saturday saw growth from Friday at many places. The all India collections of the film look in the same range as Friday as many areas in Maharashtra area were shut in the evening due to the death of Balasaheb Thackerey.

    If things were normal the films would have managed decent 10% plus growth on an all India basis but now collections look like coming in the same range or even lower depending on the affect in Maharashtra. Sunday will also be hit as Maharashtra will be shut all day. North India added a good 10% plus for both films on Saturday.

      shilac – the gap hasnt widened on saturday as you had predicted. by BOI’s numbers the gap is still 2 cr. If you check taran numbers,he had just 1 cr differnce in sos-jthj on friday. Boxofficecapsule,an srk fansite, has same 11 cr figure for both sos-jthj on saturday.

        Lets wait for the final numbers.
        Gap might not have widened as Mumbai was one of the strongest circuits for JTHJ which got badly affected y’day.

        I trust BOI…Taran’s numbers can be taken for reference but box office capsule is a joke.
        first tell me, which source u want to believe Taran or BOI?

          narad_muni, my initial expectation were 13-14 cr saturday and 16-17 cr sunday. So I think Sunday will not be more than 12 cr in the current scanario. So a loss of 7 cr for JTHJ, as you rightly said before. Don’t know whether it can recover this loss or not, what’s your take on this.

  96. Author
    narad_muni 7 years ago

    The Saturay numbers got affected badly by Maharasthra bandh.

    But as I had predicted before, JTHJ did better than SOS on Saturday.
    In multiplex heavy center like Gurgaon, it has a bigger jump than SOS
    and in mass centers like CI where it is underperforming, it had a less fall than SOS.

    From now on, predictions are difficult to make due to the situation in the Mumbai-Mashrashtra area.
    Hope the weekdays are strong for both movies and they can make up part of the loss

          narad_muni 7 years ago

          Show me where I predicted 175….I was always at 140-150 with decent-to-good WOM,
          Since the WOM is not that good, I had scaled down to 130-135. But now with all this shit, I said 125.

          I said 175 is the max potential is WOM is excellent and SOS has real bad WOM – neither of which is true.

          I dont know if you remember – but I told u clearly on FB that if this movie does less than 140, it is an underperformer. But with this unfortunate incidents happening, that bar will be closer to 130.

          Weekdays will make it clear…but I think going by the trending so far that the movie will have a good week and 2nd weekend.

          Without competition, 150 was definitely possible

        Thursday and Friday are holidays in UAE. Saturday is a working day so that could be the reason for the dip.

    Jab Tak Hai Jaan Collects 75 Crore Nett Over Its Extended Weekend

    Jab Tak Hai Jaan has collected 75 crore nett approx over its extended six day weekend. The all India collections on Sunday were lower than Saturday as Maharashtra was shut at many places due to the funeral of Shiv Sena leader Balasaheb Thackeray. The film collected around 9.25 crore nett on Sunday.

    The film suffered more in Maharashtra than Son Of Sardaar as the film was recording higher collections before the shutdown. The film collected 45 core nett in the first three days and 30 crore nett in the next three days and suffered to the tune of 3.75 crore in Maharashtra.

    The territorial figures of the extended weekend will be published in the evening.

    Even in other circuits there was not the normal growth associated with a Sunday as the film had released on Tuesday. Still the film got closest to Jab Tak Hai Jaan on Sunday as that film had higher collections in the Maharashtra area so lost more than Son Of Sardaar. The film collected 34 core nett in the first three days and 25 crore nett in the next three days and suffered to the tune of 2.50 crore in Maharashtra.

    The territorial figures of the extended weekend will be published in the evening.

    Saw JTHJ. Felt bored whenever Kat use to appear on screen. First I disliked the movie, but when you think about it again, you will continue to think (I would have loved this movie may be 10 years back). So in that sense JTHJ may enjoy a low but steady repeat value. Need to watch it again to know how the 2nd viewing paves off. Secondly, I felt it was whole and sole SRK movie. He was the best part of the movie. He was convincing in almost every scene. Made to sit through the entire movie. I will not be surprised if the movie trends well.

      I have never doubted talent of SRK, he is indeed good, but the problem is he has selected some of the most ridiculous scripts in last 5-6 movies.

    the bal thackeray incident on sunday costed 3.75 cr to jthj and 2.5 cr to sos as per BOI.sunday collections of jthj and sos are 9 cr 8.5 cr respectively.even if you add it,that makes a total of 13 cr for jthj and 11 cr for sos. these are pedestrian colections for sunday in anycase but nonetheless the so-called losses are negligible. There is no loss. both films have below avg wom. sos seems to have the better wom.

  110. FS 7 years ago

  111. mate 7 years ago

    “mate โ€“ lets throw a party on jthj โ€˜s sweeping victory over sos.”

    Baba ji, I know you intentionally put this 70-75% screen difference every time, now even God knows there is not more than 20% difference in both number of screens and even less. So what If SOS missed โ€˜bestโ€™ single screens, JTHJ also missed even more number of multiplexes that could fetch huge numbers for it. I am sure If JTHJ would have released in those multiplexes where SOS released eventually, JTHJ could have occupied much higher occupancy than what SOS had (If SOS was 60%, JTHJ should have been 90-95%). On the contrary, If SOS would have released in those โ€˜bestโ€™ single screens, that are pre-booked by JTHJ producers, it would make no difference for exhibitors at least for the weekend. So ultimately, itโ€™s JTHJ and ofcourse Srk who have to suffer maximum, and moreover all the recent controversies and โ€˜mis-happeningsโ€™ make it more difficult for JTHJ to get even a respectable total, but still it manage to do a โ€˜sweepingโ€™ victory over SOS thatโ€™s a big achievement. Yes it is, to earn more than 25 cr in domestic and 60 cr more in overseas (minimum) is infact a sweeping victory, so save your sarcasm for some other time. ๐Ÿ˜›
    You can say it Srkโ€™s hard luck or some bad decisions over the last 2-3 years though he has no discretion over it, but as the people see apparently and go by the final result, that create a misperception that Srk has the least BO pull amongst the current superstars. Ra.one was a bad product going by the word of mouth, it was a washout case and it hurts Srk image a lot. Though many disagree but I believe Don 2, if released before Ra.one or inplace of Ra.one, it could earn 150+ cr easily, and there is no exaggeration in it. Similarly JTHJ that has equally good wom as Don 2, can get much better results if released solo without any controversy. Fortune is not kind to the King these days, but the time is not far away when fortune smile on him again. ๐Ÿ˜€
    Wo kehte he na k har kutte ka din aata he, Lekin in k liye char din ki chandi aur phir andheri raat he. Ultimately itโ€™s the King who rule all over and forever. ๐Ÿ˜‰

      narad_muni 7 years ago

      yeah…but those are producer numbers and ADF can have different calculations than YRF ๐Ÿ˜€
      Lets wait for BOI numbers.
      Actually, according to producer numbers, SOS was ahead of JTHJ on MOnday itself but acc to BOI, the story was different.

      But to be frank the trending of both movies are horrible to say the least – JTHJ
      is relatively worse but SOS is not trending well.
      This way JTHJ might finish at 110 crores while SOS at 90 odd.

      The movie will be highly profitable for YRF..but that’s it. It is neither liked by the audience nor it is a huge hit at BO in terms of Indian BO collections. It doesn’t do SRK any good nor does it harm him the way RA.1 did. The only saving grace is the huge overseas collections

      Let;s see when SRK finally does a movie with a good script.

        I think this harms him more than the Ra.One – as it was his territory and all things were in his side. Ra.one was not his usual masala.

        ” The only saving grace is the huge overseas collections”

        How much do u think Overseas will end at? I think it crashed overseas also and will end up at 65Cr – something which ETT did. Considering the genre its not much.

        • Baba Ji 7 years ago

          I think shilac meant the general public. ra1 hurted him more in that sense. But in the eyes of those who have followed his career closely and those interested in stardom narratives , this is a sign of a fading star ,atleast in his favourite genre. One thing is for sure ,from now srk will not bank on a romantic film to get that huge blockbuster. He will look to gross in masala or wholesome films like HNY and CE.

    This is the end
    Hold your BOI and count Overseas till when
    Feel the Box Office move and then
    Hear the BOI’s Silence again or “Witness the Stardom in Cocain”

    For this is the end
    King of Romance is drowned and dies in this moment
    So overdue, He owed them

    Let the Superstar fall, when it crumbles
    We will stand tall

    Jab Tak Hai Jaan And Son Of Sardaar Neck To Neck On Wednesday

    Jab Tak Hai Jaan are now collecting neck to neck with both films collecting in the 3.75- 4 crore nett region on Wednesday.

    Jab Tak Hai Jaan started with a 4 crore approx lead on day one and on day nine that lead has been totally cut by Son Of Sardaar. Although Son Of Sardaar will not get close in terms of overall business it may cut the the 16 crore nett gap between them by a crore or two over the next few weeks.

    Both films are maintaining most of the screen space in week two with multiplexes just cutting a couple of shows and single screens practically same as week one.

    Two markets have seen a turnaround, Gujarat and CP Berar, in both these markets Jab Tak Hai Jaan was stronger on day one but now Son Of Sardaar has edged ahead.

    Both films have underperformed in some circuits. Jab Tak Hai Jaan is poor in Bihar and average in CP Berar, CI and Rajasthan while Son Of Sardaar is poor in West Bengal and Mysore and average in CP Berar and Nizam.

    The key major markets of Mumbai and North have scored well for both films. Its the first time since Dil and Ghayal in 1990 that two films released on the same day have both succeeded and the gap in business is small (will be around 15% here). Normally in clashes, one film has run away with the box office be it only one film succeeding or two films succeeding.

  118. I.One 7 years ago

    It is ridiculous to write-off SRK. I never doubted even Akki’s stardom during his bad phase of 2009-2010. I even mentioned somewhere in 2011 that Akki will rule 2012 and he already has 3 big grossers of the year. Writing-off SRK is a mistake. Though this is not the 1st time when people have written him off ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Jasper 7 years ago

      We can look above and see some nonsense lyrics which chronicle the supposed fall of a superstar.

      People on Tanqeed (somewhat) and NG (mostly) have been dying to see SRK fall but it hasn’t happened, much to their chagrin – Don 2 was a major blow to their incessant chants of the “Goodbye SRKs”. JTHJ has just turned out to be a coin which landed vertically – and that is enough for write-offs.

      I now await an IBN or TOI article which says “Goodbye SRK, thanks for the memories”.

      • Shinji 7 years ago

        @jasper.. hye buddy chill, apologies, if ur sensitive heart couldnt take some humour and fun over a supposed ly crap film and its box office, and fall of romance.

        Its for fun, just to laugh… and forget.

        Seriously Speaking, i believe script is the most important variable for any movie.

        SRK + Write Script will def be in top bracket with ETT, 3I etc.

        @sachin

        1) I dont think i am writing SRK off.
        2) Yes i am writing off in Romance genre that to at box office no were else.
        3) if u feel at romance he is still good and can break records, one only has to see barfi eg.
        4) it is criticism of BOI’s silence, and holding of overseas no.

        I guess u and i know perfectly well, its not superstar, its script and genre that decided things, As a genre in todays day

        Masala >>>>>>>> Love story.

  119. Shinji 7 years ago

    and on that note lemme say again…

    “Let the Superstar fall, when it crumbles
    We will stand tall
    And laugh it all together
    At Super Fall
    Thatโ€™s a Superstarโ€™s Fall!!”

    Just for fun… it’s life stranger things happen… but life goes on…

    i am sure Chennai Express, one of the impact of this would, that movie will have more masala sequence then planned as Love stories no longer with srk without srk cant reach 200 cr.

  120. Shinji 7 years ago

    between obituary of the great star is written on NG by DJ.

    1) i feel he underestimates rohit shetty
    2) srk just needs a strong film like OMG or TZP, to get neutral viewers.

  121. Tulmul 7 years ago

    Its easy to write Obitury when someone is going downhill. We all do it as human fraility. But we never know about the future. So never say NEVER.

    I don’t know which way srk’s career will go, either complete sun set or twilight or noon( ??) but no one can deny his cultural significance in BW.

    IMHO, he makes bad choice of movies and is more to please his Ego, living up2 those Epithets given by media and fans alike that hurts him… and tinsel glory is always transatitory, no matter who.

    With time, every good star/actor has to die to his old image and recast as new one, who does it lasts long, a natural law.

    • Baba Ji 7 years ago

      fully agreed tulmul . especially with this ” living up2 those Epithets given by media and fans alike that hurts him”

      he has become like that character played by hrithik in lbc. a victim of his own screen image.

    Jab Tak Hai Jaan Grosses 91 Crore Nett In Ten Days

    Friday 23rd November 2012 10.00 IST
    Boxofficeindia.Com Trade Network

    Jab Tak Hai Jaan has grossed 91 crore nett in ten days. The business at mass centres fell from Monday onwards while the premium multiplexes have held up better. The film performed best in cities like Mumbai, Delhi, Kolkata and Bangalore. The film lost around 4 crore nett due to Maharashtra being shut for some time over the weekend.

    Overall the film will do around 115 crore nett lifetime business. The approx ten day business in some circuits was as follows.

    Delhi/UP – 18 crore

    East Punjab – 7 crore

    CI – 2.90 crore

    Rajasthan – 4.75 crore

    • Baba Ji 7 years ago

      I had predicted don2 range for jthj. seems it will make 5 cr more.so same as ra1.The trending is disastrous if it does end at 115 cr.The film has been rejected. so srk seems the first khan to be fading away.

      Shilac has stopped giving us BO updates since some days. Some fans are writing farewell to his career. Haters already have him out of top bracket while the neutrals dont care about his forthcoming films.An end of an era.

            @jasper:

            u can go and read my views in archives i prefer rnbdj to ghajini! but i am sure having fun and laugh is not in u…

            it happens when one takes some star and his fandom seriously…

            Life is all about loving and laughing and heaving healthy debate… but using words like hate is so simple jaspu ?

      • sauravjha 7 years ago

        Well I can definitely speak for fans and trust me when i say this fans will never ever write him off they didnt after Anjaam never after Dil se not even after Ra.one and most certainly not after JTHJ ! Fans his hardcore fan base have loved this film and are as usually looking 4wd to his next.

        For haters i dnt understand why would they have him in top bracket in first place?? Sounds ironical so yeah they would have written him off after Anjaam definitely after Dil se and most ever so certainly after Ra,one! Why were haters waiting for this long to kick him off ?? !! Haha..

        For neutrals i dnt find any neutrals nowadays everybody has biases so cant speak abt them.!

        Lastly if you have already written him off thats gr8 if not then also its gr8! Its last 5-6 yrs of their stardom and as far as i can see True fans never ever leave their star and they havent. Whether it be 5 crores more or less than somebody’s expectations.

        • Shinji 7 years ago

          What are fans?

          I have asked this question often when i speak to football supporters.

          – there is a kind who are blind to everything wrong with ur club!
          – there is a kind who always thinks positvely and question their club and their affairs
          – there is a kind who accept their club has played bad and dont deserve wins..
          – there is a kind who are always pessimistic and think their club is underperforming.

          I feel it can be equated to fans of stars, most people think first kind is most important kind of fans, while i feel the mixture of first along with intelligence of second kinds plays important role.

          • sauravjha 7 years ago

            Cudn’t agree wid u more sir ! From my little observation i have found that more than the “STAR” or “CELEBRITY” whom fans claim to be fan of they actually are fan of their “fanship” ! I will give u an example here consider ETT has defeated JTHJ and now if i feel like “oh dear salman fans have defeated me now how shud i rply to them? ” that’s whr problem starts! Its when u start feeling the victory or loss of ur respective favs as ur own then wat u get is ruthless and petty wars on networking sites or for that matter anywhere. Being fan is being in love with somebody”s work , being able to identify wid somebody’s work. So if you are that then chances are that you will end up being under control and as u mentioned fulfilling first two criterias.

            And hence i said “true” fans will never ever leave their respective Idol for a simple reason that u will keep on identifying wid their works. But those fans whom Baba is claiming here to bid their fairwells, i cant see that happening wid Srk’s true fans.

            I hope i have made some sense ๐Ÿ™‚

    Son Of Sardaar Grosses 75 Crore Nett In Ten Days

    Friday 23rd November 2012 10.00 IST
    Boxofficeindia.Com Trade Network

    Son Of Sardaar has grossed 75 crore nett in ten days. The business at multiplexes in the big cities did start to drop towards the end of the week while single screens are holding well. The out performance has surprisingly come in Rajasthan and CI and not Delhi or East Punjab where the last sardaar film Singh is Kinng out performed. The film lost around 3 crore nett due to the Maharashtra being shut for some time over the weekend.

    Overall the film will do around 100 crore nett lifetime business. The approx ten day business in some circuits was as follows.

    Delhi/UP – 16 crore

    East Punjab – 7.75 crore

    CI – 4 crore

    Rajasthan – 6 crore

  125. sauravjha 7 years ago

    So its almost clear now dat JTHJ will end up somewhere near 115-120 and SOS around 100 overall fair result for both. Especially considering JTHJ got hurt more in Maharashtra and 5 crores was there for taking. But in the end it wont have mattered much cos perception n verdict wud have remained the same. For fans of both stars their films are hit and for haters/dislikers both slightly under performed. I for one always had 130 as target for JTHJ so m not too disappointed and as his fan and i can speak for some fellow srk fans that they havent been disappointed as such if at all they r its more about that supremacy at box office which is currently being enjoyed by Salman BLOCKBUSTER khan and Akki. ๐Ÿ™‚

    It will be interesting how Talaash does now cos it is one genre(thriller/suspense) at d moment like Romantic movies ala jthj which cant be expected to rule the roost and do record business. So how it goes will tell us a lot about box office scenarios.

    As per me cos there have been lots of talk abt “fading stardom” and rising stardom i have my ranking currently and here it goes:-

    1)Salman ( for very obvious reasons)
    2)Akshay (had gr8 comeback this year)
    3)SRK/Aamir (both looks like will have 1 hit each this year)
    4)Hrihtik/Ajay ( hrithik does far too less movies to affect ranking much maybe and hopefully he will break into it next year with his huge releases. Ajay managed to hold his own vs might of SRK and that speaks a lot).

    PS:- i feel next year all Salman, SRK, Akki, Hrithik and Aamir looks like giving one and two easy blockbusters each and how big it will be will change perceptions and rankings !

  126. sauravjha 7 years ago

    I would like to say something here to some of my fellow srk fans like Mate ( i hope u r one ๐Ÿ™‚ ) that we dnt need to bother obsessively about Box office currently lets just enjoy what we can say is last 5-6 years of supreme stardom of our fav (includes aamir amnd salman too) ! Also we have enjoyed single handed dominance of SRK at box office both domestically and overseas for 10 years at least if not more so let other’s enjoy it too ๐Ÿ˜› But seriously one more thing is this is an age of Masala movies which everyone would agree that its not SRK’s strength so even if he is holding his own in storm called masala dat shud be good enuf i guess. Cause we saw how miserably ( with all due respect ) other stars were failing when Romance was in and nobody was even able to compete with srk.

    So my two cents would be this year we had one hit/superhit whatever we will like to call it and next year seems “SAFE” considering two masala movies from srk and both shud be huge grossers so ya just chill ๐Ÿ™‚

  128. Baba Ji 7 years ago

    saurav – I never said any fan to leave his star. I said they are writing farewell to his romantic career which is a fact.
    But I also said that blind support to any star is not good, even if he is your fav. If you critise his poor work,he wont repeat the same thing again. Always remember this doha of Kabeer

    “NINDAK NIYARE RAKHIYE, ANGAN KUTI CHHAWAY, BIN PANI SABUN BINA, NIRMAL KARAI SUBHAY.”

    Keep your critic(Tanqeed ๐Ÿ˜‰ ) close to you. Give him a cottage near your house because he purifies you without soap and water.

    • sauravjha 7 years ago

      Yes baba agree wid that i mistook it for bidding farewell to SRK completely ! Yes as far as pure romantic movie goes this should be SRK’s last even though Chennai Express is also based on romance but its completely different type and more in sync wid today’s cinema, so yes and even SRK has said and i quote him “I Don’t think I would be able to do romance again ” he said that after Yashji’s demise.

      As for being true critic in fan case i think barring few everyone criticised Srk for Ra.one act nobody liked his performance in it but what is also true is he was “liked” in Don 2 and also to some extent in JTHJ by his core fan group. Fans are strange lot baba how much ever so they back their stars if movie isn’t good they won’t go ! As was found by Salman in 2000’s n now SRK.

      But i agree completely wid ur views of not being blind fan n i hope ppl listen to u more ( i also wish u put it in more subtle ways sometimes ๐Ÿ™‚ ) as u knw most srkians r “emotional” lot ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Shinji 7 years ago

      btw, even you are off with your predictions, i had predicted it to make around don 2 number , looks like it will finish there . it is not going to make 120 cr.

      SOS is a crap film as well but masala is in and ppl are ready to overlook the faults in such films. It has few funny scenes and that was enuff to have a better wom than jthj.

      This might be the first time that BOI reduced 10 cr for an srk film . I am impressed ๐Ÿ˜‰
      Since when did boi start giving verdicts on ROI? wasnt it on share/print? They keep changing their parameters for verdict like a prostitute changes her customer. On share/print , sos is clear winner and should get a better verdict. on ROI,jthj is the better performing film.

      Finally, this film does nothing for srk except regressing him few steps backward from where he was in don2. Time has come for srk to leave his friend group and stop trying to prove his might at the BO. Time to do some low budget non-extravagant films.

    Jab Tak Hai Jaan Second Weeeknd Business

    Jab Tak Hai Jaan grossed 9.50 crore nett over its second weekend. Due to the extended first week the film did not show the second weekend Saturday and Sunday growth like some of the other big films of the year. The film has held up better in the bigger cities and the total for the film after its second weekend is 92 crore nett approx.

    The film has turned the tables on Son Of Sardaar in East Punjab as it had lower collections in the first ten days but managed better collections in the next three days although by just a couple of lakhs.

    The collections have come off heavily in places like West Bengal, Nizam and Mysore where it opened to very strong collections.

    —————————-

    Jab Tak Hai Jaan Week One Territorial Breakdown

    Jab Tak Hai Jaan collected 82.25 approx in its extended ten day first week. The first week distributor share is 46 crore approx. Below is the first week territorial breakdown.

    TOTAL – 82.24 crore

    Note – The actual collections have come in 9-10% lower than estimates given throughout the first week.

    Son Of Sardaar collected 69.75 nett approx in its extended ten day first week. The first week distributor share is 40.50 crore approx. Below is the first week territorial breakdown.

    TOTAL – 69.65 crore

    Note – The actual collections have come in 7-8% lower than estimates given throughout the first week.

  134. sputnik 7 years ago

    Son Of Sardaar Second Weekend Business

    Son Of Sardaar collected around 9.5-10 crore nett over its second weekend. The film like Jab Tak Hai Jaan did not show the second weekend Saturday and Sunday growth like some big films of the year due to extended first week.

    The film has very done well in Rajasthan, CI and the Gujarat/Saurashtra belt while business in North and Bihar is good and the total after its second weekend is around 80 crore nett.

    The performance of the film is very dull in Kolkata, Hyderabad and Bangalore. The Nizam circuit managed decent collections as collections in the Marathwada belt were pretty good but business in West Bengal and Mysore has been dull from day one and second weekend fell further.

    ————–

    So Boxofficeindia.com has brought down collections of both JTHJ and SOS. JTHJ did 82.25 in the first ten days instead of the 91 they said earlier. And SOS did only 69.75 in the first ten days instead of the 75 they said earlier.
