Race 2 Boxoffice Collections Thread

Race 2 Has Good Opening

Race 2 had a good opening with collections around the 65% mark on average at multiplexes. The opening was excellent in Delhi, Punjab and Rajasthan with the film opening to a housefull response at many theatres. Delhi city, Noida, Chandigarh, Ludhiana, Jalandhar, Jaipur all saw very strong opening figures at multiplexes. In other circuits the opening was lower than the North but still fairly good.

The opening of the film is much better than the early reports of the film which are mixed. The reports of the film are a bit of a downer as tomorrow is a big holiday but with mixed reports the film may not get full advantage of that holiday. The film is set to put up big numbers over the first two days with the key being how big is the jump on Saturday and what can it do on Sunday.

    Solid Opening For Race 2 At Multiplexes And Single Screens

    Race 2 has had a solid opening all over with collections in the 60-70% range all at multiplexes and single screens. It is best in the North with the lowest results coming in the East.

    Till date the biggest opening for a Saif Ali Khan starrer is the 11 crore nett of Cocktail and for John Abraham it is 12.75 crore nett of Housefull 2 but that film was driven more by the face value of a bigger star like Akshay Kumar.

    The way Race 2 is going it certain to beat the figures of Cocktail and with the evenings likely to be strong at multiplexes due to next day being a big national holiday it could also surpass the figures of Housefull 2.

    It must be noted that the release of Race 2 is bigger than the films mentioned above at around 3200 screens and the film is the third biggest release ever for a Hindi film.

    Race 2 Has Very Good Opening Day

    Saturday 26th January 2013 11.00 IST

    Boxofficeindia.Com Trade Network

    Race 2 had a very good opening day collecting 13.75 crore nett as per early estimates on its opening day. The first day collections are the 8th highest of all time. The film collected well all across India with each circuit having good or very good collections.

    The opening is the biggest ever for all the actors in the film from Saif Ali Khan to John Abraham to Deepika Padukone.

    The film will have a jump in business today as it is a holiday for Republic Day which assures it a huge weekend. A 45 crore weekend looks almost certain and the film can even go towards 50 crore if the film jumps 30-40% on Saturday which may be tough but possible as these big holidays have seen huge collections over the last year or so.


    • Baba Ji 11 years ago

      very good day one number. boi was saying it has ‘mixed’ reports and a downer yday. seems they changed their views later like ap ๐Ÿ˜‰

  6. Baba Ji 11 years ago

    I am expecting 45cr+ weekend and 65 cr week 1. a race like trending will take it over 100 cr.

  7. Baba Ji 11 years ago

    almost 15 cr day one

    first day of race 2 in the range of don2,RR,dabang, ra1 and far more than jthj

  9. syed imran 11 years ago

    The film is doing some amazing collections all over india despite negative review from some so called critics and some stupid bollywood sites. The collections are a big slap on those critics and sites who are trying to spread negative vibes about the movie. They even mentioned yesterday on their sites that the movie will not see any significant rise in collections on Saturday. Seems they did not recv any big booty from abbas muston duo. And yes all the khans and kumars fans are jealous of the movie collections and are not coming in open in appreciation of the movie…

    Race 2 Has Growth On Republic Day Holiday

    Sunday 27th January 2013 12.00 IST
    Boxofficeindia.Com Trade Network

    Race 2 showed a 25% jump in collections on Saturday due to the Republic Day holiday. The film collected around 18 crore nett on Saturday taking the two day collection to a little over 32 crore nett

    The growth on Saturday was very strong in places like Delhi/UP, East Punjab and Mysore but less in circuits like Rajasthan, CI and Bihar. The film will show a drop today (Sunday) as the case after a big holiday but it should cross 45 crore nett for the weekend.

    The weekend business is set to be good with the holiday giving the filman extra boost of 3-4 crore nett while the weekday business of the film likely to tell where the film is going.

  11. Baba Ji 11 years ago

    sunday should be 15 cr. so 15+18+15 = 48 cr weekend

  12. Baba Ji 11 years ago

    Highest Opening 3 day weekends:

    Dabangg – 48.5 cr
    Rowdy Rathore – 48 cr
    Don 2, Talaash – 47 cr
    Housefull 2 – 42.5 cr
    Bol Bachchan – 41 cr
    Ready – 40.5 cr
    3 Idiots – 40 cr

    Race 2 Has Good First Weekend

    Monday 27th January 2013 10.30 IST

    Boxofficeindia.Com Trade Network

    Race 2 did well on its first weekend by collecting around 46.25 crore nett. The breakdown for the weekend was 14.25 crore nett on Friday, 17.50 crore nett on Saturday and 14.50 crore nett on Sunday.

    The weekend total is good but the weekend trend is not so good as some centres had less collections on Sunday than Friday. Also the jump on Saturday was not as big as it should have been considering it was one of the biggest holidays of the year. On a national holiday which comes in the first three days, a big film like Race should be 20 crore nett plus.

    The performance of the film is best in the North with places like Bihar and CPCI underperforming. Monday is the all important day for the film and if can pull out a 7 crore or higher Monday it is likely to go on and be the first hit of 2013.

    Race 2 Monday Business

    Tuesday 29th January 2013 10.00 IST

    Boxofficeindia.Com Trade Network

    Race 2 dropped on Monday as it collected around 6 crore nett. The drop from Friday is around 55% plus. The total for four days is 52.50 crore nett.

    The film dropped all over with North India holding best but even in North the drop was 50% plus. The first week total of the film will still go to around 65-66 crore nett which is pretty good but the trend is not there for it to sustain well from second weekend onwards.

    There are no big releases on Friday which could help the film a bit but probably not to the extent that the film needs.


    • Baba Ji 11 years ago

      Monday of films with similar weekend:

      Talaash – 6.25

      Don 2 – 6.25

      Dabangg – 10.95

      Rowdy Rathore – 9

  18. Baba Ji 11 years ago

    race 2 is going don 2 /talaash way of trending. may finish around or in between talaash and don 2 final nett. 90 to 105 cr.

    • narad_muni 11 years ago

      wonder wot happens to your self-proclaimed razor sharp mathematical and analytical skills sometimes.

      First of all, DON2 did 106crores and Talaash did 90 crores after similar opening. (Also, Don 2 was released a year back).
      DON2 was a clean hit whereas Talaash was an average/semi hit.
      By painting both of them with the same brush, you are trying to comfort yourself about the under-performance of Talaash and pull down the success of DON 2.
      Baba Ji, you try so hard to project your pseudo-neutral image but your actual intentions become so obvious through comments like this ๐Ÿ˜‰

      Now coming to Race 2, it is going the Talaash way and NOT Don2 way

      • Baba Ji 11 years ago

        wonder what happens to your common sense when it comes to srk. was talaash and don 2 equally BO friendly? anyway i am not defending talaash.you may have seen my review of the film.i almost mocked it.
        both talaash and don 2 didnt trend well. ready with 40 cr weekend did 120cr+ in early 2011. so your desperate attempt to make don2 trending look good will not work.

        • narad_muni 11 years ago

          DON 2 was not a BO friendly genre..
          it didn’t have any songs except one, no heroine as such, no sentimantel melodrama etc etc which the Indian audiences love. Also, it came after the debacle and extreme negative WOM of RA1

          Talaash was not a BO friendly genre either.

          When 2 movies have similar opening weekends. but one does 15 crores more than the other, u can’t call it similar trending.

          Ready trended excellently. DOn2 trended decently. Talaash trended badly and so is Race 2.

  19. Serenzy 11 years ago

    With Such a Good Opening, Race2 ought to have Crossed 120cr Nett but the WOM was Mixed on the Negative Side.

    With a 46.20cr Weekend[Cud have done 48/50+ at Full Potential], doing a Nett of ~95cr is Totally Underwhelming and Dissapointing.

    I Also don’t Understand Why it got Rejected at Rajasthan, CPCI, Bihar as Race2 is as Good as BG, Ready, ETT and the Likes.

    Also with 3rd Largest Number of Prints doing 95/100 wrt 150/190 of Salman proves many a point


    As far as “Top Opening Weekends” is concerned :-

    Dabangg2 – 58.20[Doing that in a Normal Weekend.. Absolutely Humongous!!]

    Dabangg – 49(140)

    Don2 – 46.50(110)

    Rowdy Rathore – 46.20(132)

    Agneepath – 45.70(120)

    Talaash – 44(92)

    Ready – 42.20(122)

    HF2 – 41.50(113.50)

    JTHJ – 40.50(104)

    Bol Bachchan – 38(100)

    – Aamir’s Goodwill made those kind of Nos. for Talaash

    – RR, AP, Don2 shows where Race2 must have ended to be a SUCCESS.

    – Not doing 20cr Day and Dropping on Sunday/Monday proved Fatal for Race-2.

    • Baba Ji 11 years ago

      you are praising race as if it had memento type twists. I dont think it was any smarter than the race 2 twists.and race opening weekend in the range of don2,talaash and rr puts a question mark on the stardom of srk,aamir and akshay,not on saif or john!

      • Reddemon 11 years ago

        Race2 had 3 holidays and also race is a big brand

        • Baba Ji 11 years ago

          25th jan was not all india holiday and sunday was there for all the films, 26th jan was not the first day of release so full impact was not possible. anyway, i didnt know the only difference between the stardom of top stars and saif/john is a holiday. glad to know it ๐Ÿ˜‰

          • Reddemon 11 years ago

            So a movie benefit from a holiday only if it is a national holiday. Ok. Also if the national holiday is on 2nd day of its release than it doesnt matter much.
            Thanx for the valuable knowledge baba ji.

          • ank_16n 11 years ago

            25th jan was a national holiday…. i.e pan india just like other eid ..!!

  20. DABANGG_NIINJA 11 years ago

    don2 7.25C tha aur plz ab yeh mat kehna ki mai apne estimate bta raha hu jb collection samne he to estimate kaisa

    • Baba Ji 11 years ago

      10 different sites have 10 different figures. even boi first had 6.25 cr ,then increased it to 7.5 cr.

  21. Serenzy 11 years ago


    Argue NOT with Baba!

    “i didnt know the only difference between the
    stardom of top stars and saif/ john is a holiday”

    Good One Babaji.

  22. Bored 11 years ago

    Don 2 did 105 cr total after spending 80-90 cr in making and marketing it – actually Taran had it at 100 cr cost including 3D – dont think it made any more money for Reliance than Reliance did with Talaash!

    Both were kind of bare minimum hit due to high budget and high cost respectively.

    • Baba Ji 11 years ago

      agreed. also atleast talaash has a “off-beat/dark” excuse to it ,don 2 to dhobi ka kutta hai ๐Ÿ˜‰ made for just BO and stil could not nail it

    • Bored 11 years ago

      And Farhan seemed very defensive when asked about making Don 3 in a recent interview – had it fetched the expected returns for the investors – then it would had been a different story.
      @Baba – Are you online now?

  23. Serenzy 11 years ago

    Don’t Want to Make it a Sound like a Reason/Explanation here but READY Came After Dabangg with Blockbuster Songs Post-IPL.

    Don2 came after RA.One in Christmas with NO Songs!

    • ank_16n 11 years ago

      sir ji movie release se phele maine 4 song videos dekhi thi Don 2 ki…..
      agree it had negative effect of Ra.one…
      but Don 2 made 75-76 cr in Week one..
      and 27 cr in 2nd week…but after that it did just 3 cr Rest..!!

      same for Talaash collected 64 cr 1st week and will do around 16 cr 2nd week….then a lifetime of 90 cr..!!

      so bottom line is Don 2 won the battle in first 2 weeks while Talaash won a small fight in Rest of weeks..!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Vishwaroop And David First Day Business

    Saturday 2nd February 2013 12.00 IST

    Boxofficeindia.Com Trade Network

    Vishwaroop improved in the evening slightly after a low start to collect 1.75-2 crore nett region with Mumbai circuit giving a major contribution of around 70 lakhs. The collections of the film are just a bit lower than Robot which was is the highest collecting film from the South in the Hindi market. Vishwaroop was released on 1000 screens approx in the Hindi market.

    David collected a poor 50-60 lakhs nett on its first day. Again it was Mumbai circuit which gave a contribution of around 50%.

    The other films released this week like Deewana Main Deewana, Mai And Listen Amaya all had very dull collections and shows were cancelled at many places due to lack of audience.

    Boxofficeindia.Com Trade Network

    Race 2 did pretty well on its second Friday collecting around 3.25 crore nett. The collections were down 75% from day one but were not much lower than Thursday. The film had dropped through the weekdays but did not drop much on the 8th day especially in the North where collections were very close to Thursday figures.

    The film should show a good pick up on Saturday and go to weekend figures of 13-14 crore nett. The film was helped by the new releases providing little competition leaving Race 2 as the first choice in its second week also.

    Vishwaroop Decent Weekend David Dull

    Monday 4th February 2013 10.30 IST

    Boxofficeindia.Com Trade Network

    Vishwaroop managed decent collections over the weekend by collecting in the 7.75 crore nett range. The film had solid growth on each day of 30-35%. The film has managed better collections than well promoted outright Hindi films like Table No.21 and Inkaar. The collections are also a bit higher than Robot which is the highest opener for a film which is from the South and features a South Indian star as main lead. Robot had opened in the 7.25-7.50 crore nett range.

    David another bilingual film did not make any mark at the box office as it collected around 2.25 crore nett. the film showed growth over the weekend but was limited growth on top of a low starting point.

    Deeewana Main Deewana, Listen Amaya and Mai were all total disasters at the box office.

    Race 2 On Course To Be First 100 Crore Film Of 2013

    Wednesday 6th February 2013 10.30 IST
    Boxofficeindia.Com Trade Network

    Race 2 is looking to be on course to be the first 100 crore film of the year as it records steady collections in the second week. Last week the film had dropping collections on the weekdays and a 20 crore second week looked a tough ask but the film has been rock steady since its second Friday. The weekdays in the second week are also very steady.

    The film is likely to gross 20-21 crore nett in week two which will take the film to 90-91 crore nett and then the third week becomes the key. There are new releases this week (Special Chabbis and ABCD) but none of them are your bumper openers which just totally wipe out the business of the films playing.

    One of the new releases having appreciation and a upward trend at the box office may affect Race 2 on Saturday and Sunday.
