Shudh Desi Romance Opens Better Than Zanjeer

Thursday 6th September 2013 10.30 IST

Boxofficeindia.Com Trade Network

Shudh Desi Romance has taken a better opening than Zanjeer across multiplexes practically all over India despite the latter being a bigger film. Shudh Desi Romance opened to around 35-40% collections while Zanjeer was around 15-20% at multiplexes. The early single screen occupancies were 25-30% for Zanjeer and 15-20% for Shudh Desi Romance.

In the North it was a big lead for Shudh Desi Romance with multiplexes being much better and single screens being on the same lines. Zanjeer opened better in single screens of Maharashtra. Overall the opening was average for Shudh Desi Romance and poor for Zanjeer.

It will be interesting to seen which film has the higher first day figure as Shudh Desi Romance has better occupancies but Zanjeer has the wider release. At the moment it seems that Shudh Desi Romance has a big enough gap at multiplexes to more than cover the lower screen count.

    B.O. update: ‘Shuddh Desi Romance’ takes a big lead over ‘Zanjeer’!
    By Taran Adarsh, September 6, 2013 – 15:55 IST

    SHUDDH DESI ROMANCE embarked on a superb better start, much bigger than ZANJEER at plexes of major centres. Targeted at the youth, SHUDDH DESI ROMANCE attracted its target audience — the youth — in hordes, thus sidelining ZANJEER at several stations. However, ZANJEER has had a wide release and caters to the single screen audience and in the mass-dominated belt specially, the response was better.

    I am happy at this. The z grade carbon copy of madhuri is getting what she deserves. Hopefully priyanka will get tolerable as she matures up after 10 years.

    Shudh Desi Romance Outscores Zanjeer Easily

    Thursday 6th September 2013 13.00 IST

    Boxofficeindia.Com Trade Network

    Shudh Desi Romance has outscored Zanjeer easily as it opened better and the gap is wider in the afternoon shows as Shudh Desi Romance improves at multiplexes where opening collections were low and holds where it started better.

    Zanjeer started lower than Shudh Desi Romance and the gap is widening. It could be that Shudh Desi Romance has double the collections of Zanjeer on day one despite showing on less screens.

    The Telugu version of Zanjeer named Thoofan has opened better in Nizam/Andhra but the way it is going there will no circuit where Zanjeer will be ahead at the end of they day. Even a mass circuit like Bihar should see Shudh Desi Romance getting the upper hand by the end of they day.

    If Zanjeer fails it will hurt Teja’s chances in Bollywood – for Priyanka it doesnt matter, she will have a biggie in Krrish anyways. What will matter for her is that Mary Kom biopic.
    And seriously does the likes of deepika, anushka, katrina, kareena act any better?
    Balan took her years to mature – but then became so bloated that she is out of the picture. Its only male stars like Devgn, Akshay and even Aamir who has the years to get matured. A male gets the time to even mature and then go back to square one like Abhishek Bachchan.

    Shudh Desi Romance Does Well On Day One

    Saturday 7th September 2013 11.30 IST
    Boxofficeindia.Com Trade Network

    Shudh Desi Romance did well on day one collecting around 6-6.25 crore nett. The film did very well in Delhi/UP, East Punjab and Rajasthan while other areas were lower comparatively when compared with these circuits but still good overall.

    The opening day number is a very good number for such a film which has a medium budget and a cast which does not have much face value. The film has mainly a multiplex release with around 1100 screens in total.

    Shudh Desi Romance will show Saturday growth though remains to be seen how much and then come out with a healthy weekend which is sure to go over 20 crore nett.

    Zanjeer First Day Business

    Saturday 7th September 2013 11.30 IST
    Boxofficeindia.Com Trade Network

    Zanjeer did poorly on day one as it collected around 3 crore nett on day one not including the business from its Telugu version Thoofan.

    The film was dull all over with collections in Delhi and Punjab being just awful. Maharashtra fared best for the film but was still very low.

    The Hindi version of the film has no chance and is a disaster as it can’t go anywhere from such a low starting point. It will be up to its Telugu version Thoofan to give it the makers some returns though considering how bad the Hindi version it will be a surprise if the Telugu version sustains in long run.

    Shuddh Desi Romance Has Strong Monday

    Tuesday 10th September 2013 11.00 IST

    Boxofficeindia.Com Trade Network

    Shuddh Desi Romance had a strong Monday as it collected around the 4.25-4.50 crore nett mark taking the four day business to 27 crore nett. The film was aided by Ganesh Chaturthi which meant it was a holiday in some parts of the country.

    A circuit like Punjab where the film was doing well saw a 45-50% drop from Friday as there is no Ganesh Chaturthi affect there. The film will be a plus film but remains to be seen how well it sustains from here on.

    There are big releases over the next two weeks and to have any chance of collecting well against them it will be important for Shudh Desi Romance to hold up well over the next three days.

    now SDR has chance of collecting 50cr if it remains steady from now on……
    if it falls then 45cr is still a done deal..!!

  18. ank_16n 9 years ago

    if the cost of zanzeer/Thofan is 60cr incl. P & A then it will suffer a loss of 10cr..!!

    The trend of the film is similar to Madras Cafe with the difference being that Shuddh Desi Romance has lower costs. Both films did well on the weekend and got advantage of one holiday on the weekdays and Madras Cafe went down heavily in week two and that could be the case for Shuddh Desi Romance as well.
