ABCD Opens Better Than Special Chabbis

Friday 8th February 2013 10.30 IST

Boxofficeindia.Com Trade Network

ABCD opened better than Special Chabbis all across India. The opening at places was much stronger despite Special Chabbis having star value in the form of Akshay Kumar although the film is not really the type expected from mass star like Akshay Kumar. On average the collections of Special Chabbis were around 30% while ABCD opened at around 60%. ABCD had no star cast but nut the youth across India has come for it in a big way.

ABCD is 3-D film which would have helped the film in terms of initial collections. Special Chabbis may pick up as the day goes along as its not an initial film. Normally these types have better collections after 6pm. It will be interesting to see which film comes out on top at the end of the day but it seems that ABCD will have the edge on day one at least.

    Can’t believe this. I did not like any promos of ABCD. Surprising.

    ~PS~ ‏@soulucky
    ABCD takes fantastic opening… youth flocking to plexes whereas Special26 is lackluster, need good WOM to boost collections.

    someone tweeted this and I agree with him.
    Akshay kumar Starpower is
    questionable. Special26 has taken
    low opening of only 25 % in spite
    of excellent reviews!

    S26 is an outstanding movie wit a perfect blend of entertainment nd substance.. Watchd da movie ystrday in UAE..ppl we’re just amazed after watching it.. Akshay’s career best performance nd dnt b surprised if he bags a national award fr it.. Anupam kher is awsum nd manoj bajpayee takes acting to a higher level.. One of the best movies to cum out of Bollywood in recent tyms.. After barfi this is a movie worth watching nd spending ur hard earnd money.. Muvie vl deftly pick up wit strong wom..go ahead and watch this flick in theaters nd have a blast this wknd..

  9. Syed imran 7 years ago

    Dude Akki indeed is a superstar.. Due to its genre film has taken a lower opening.. Bt I hope it vl deftly pick up in da coming days..any other khan/roshan/kapoor wit the same genre vl also take a similar opening.. Ppl in India still need da same maar dhaad promos to garner interest in them..

  10. mate 7 years ago

    WoW a non-starrer film having an offbeat theme opens much better than a mainstream bollywood movie of a so-called superstar. No doubt Special 26 is not a mindless masala entertainer but it’s neither an issue-based movie that targetted to certain section of audience. It’s a heist drama much on the lines of DON 2 but unlike Don 2, Neeraj put every thing from colorful romantic songs to bhangra with typical bollywood dances to grab the mass attention. Ironically ABCD lead star is the director of Rowdy Rathore, and as ABCD opening is much better than Special 26, it clearly indicates that the success of Rowdy Rathore was mainly due to Prabhu and not Joker Kumar. A real shame.

    Special Chabbis Improves ABCD Solid

    Special Chabbis has seen an improvement in collections in the late afternoon but still first day will not be as strong especially for a film of its size. The best collections are in the South Delhi and Gurgaon area.

    ABCD opened very well at most places and is keeping the pace. The film opened very well in Mumbai which is rare for a non star cast film.

    Both films should collect in the same range which should be 5 crore nett plus but Special Chabbis is playing on 500 screens more which makes its opening below par going by screens and cost while ABCD has done very well to get better occupancies and even match first day collections with a star cast film despite 30-35% less screens.

      Special Chabbis Strong In Evening ABCD Drops

      Friday 8th February 2013 20.30 IST
      Boxofficeindia.Com Trade Network

      Special Chabbis came into its own in the shows after 6pm recording good collections while it was the opposite for ABCD which went down. Special Chabbis recorded 50-60% collections in the evening where as it started at 30-35%.

      ABCD went the other way as it started at 50-60% but was down to 30% in the evening. The film just flattered to deceive and the dropping collections means negative reports. Both films have similar occupancies of around 40% for the day but with Special Chabbis having the wider release it should comfortably collect more which did not look the case in the morning.

      The trend ensures the weekend will belong to Special Chabbis but it has a lot of work to do cover its big price. ABCD will still get a decent first day for such a film due to initial but its unlikley to go anywhere.

    • Reddemon 7 years ago

      WTF BOI have removed this article and now they they are saying occupancy was only 30% in evening for ABCD but here they say ABCD is Rock solid.
      They said in this Article that both movie will collect in same range and now they are saying S26 will lead easily.
      Agree with baba
      “akshay PR paid them?”

    Special 26 First Day Business

    Saturday 9th February 2013 10.30 IST
    Boxofficeindia.Com Trade Network

    Special Chabbis grossed around 5.50-5.75 crore nett as per early estimates thanks to good collections in the evening as even a 4 crore total looked tough on the morning collections. The film has been released on 1575 screens and sold for hefty prices in many circuits so the despite the turnaround collections are still below the mark.

    The film should show a jump on Saturday and Sunday but it needs a good run to score at the box office. The best collections were in the Delhi and Gurgaon area while West Bengal and Bihar fared very poorly.

    In Mumbai the film has been sold for around 12 crore and the first weekend share will be around 4 crore if the film gets the normal 20% growth over the weekend making recovery a very task, it will need 50% growth on Saturday and Sunday to get close to recovery.

    INDIA: #ABCD Fri Rs 5.5 cr [400 3D screens, 350 2D screens, total 750 screens]. Slight dip in evening shows. V good for non-star cast film

  19. Reddemon 7 years ago

    Frankly speaking i was expecting ABCD to collect 5cr in week 1 and 7-8cr lifetime because of the dull promos, only one known face and releasing with a Neeraj-akki film.

    Expecting it to cross 30cr now.

    Feeling happy 🙂

    Special 26 First Weekend Business

    Monday 11th February 2013 10.30 IST

    Boxofficeindia.Com Trade Network

    Special 26 had a decent weekend of 23 crore nett approx and showed excellent growth over the weekend with business on Sunday going to around 9.50 crore nett but still the weekend is just about decent due to the low starting point.

    The trend over the weekend means its almost certain the film will hold well on Monday but the film has a lot of work to do over the next couple of weeks if it is to come out a major winner. The film has done best in North and Mysore with business in West Bengal and Bihar being lower comparatively.

    The producers will recover the 50 crore investment as the film has fetched around 35 crore from sale of the territory rights across India but that low starting point has meant that distributors outside a couple of circuits will struggle.


  22. DABANGG_NIINJA 7 years ago

    acha weekend he dono ka .,pr maine to abcd ka lifetime 10C hi socha tha pr yeh to weekend me hi 16C ho gya ,.. ,.

  23. hello 7 years ago

    This is a below average weekend for an Akki starrer never thought it would face competetion from a dance film like like ABCD with no face value. Now noone expected this to open like RR but it still could have done 8-9cr on opening day and then some growth over the weekend would have taken this to 33-35cr weekend which would have been alright given the high cost. This may still trend very well and eventually put up a respectable lifetime number but the real question is Where is Akshay’s Starpower ? or can he not open a film big unless its masala ?

    Special 26 Has Decent Collections On Monday
    Tuesday 12th February 2013 10.00 IST
    Boxofficeindia.Com Trade Network

    Special 26 held strong as expected on Monday and collected in the 3.75-4 crore nett range. The drop is just 35% on Monday from Friday but Friday had low collections. The trend from Friday is very strong but the overall collections of 3.75-4 crore nett is just a fair total for Monday.

    The film will get the help on Valentine’s Day on Thursday and the week should go to around 38 crore nett. The collections will be slightly better than OMG! Oh My God over the first week but that film really came into its own from the second week onwards and that is what Special 26 will be hoping to do.

    The second week will be the key for the film and if it can really hold strong it may come out with a 30 crore plus lifetime share which would be a decent result.

    Special 26 And ABCD Hold Well On Tuesday

    Wednesday 13th February 2013 10.00 IST

    Boxofficeindia.Com Trade Network

    Special 26 and ABCD – Any Body Can Dance both held up well on Tuesday showing just 10% drops from the previous day. The totals after five days is a 30.75 crore nett total for Special 26 and a 20.50 crore nett total for ABCD – Any Bod Can Dance.

    Both films should show an upturn of around 15-25% on Valentines Day on Thursday as over the last few years Valentines Day has seen collections go up despite it not being a holiday.

    The key for both film is the second weekend business, more so for Special 26 due to the costs involved.

    Special 26 Day Eight Business

    Saturday 16th February 2013 11.00 IST

    Boxofficeindia.Com Trade Network

    Special 26 grossed around 2-2.25 crore nett on its 8th day. The drop is 60-65% from day one which is reasonable. The total after eight days is around the 40 crore nett mark for the film.

    The poor performance of Murder 3 and Jayantabhai Ki Love Story will ensure the film shows huge growth on Saturday. The film should comfortably cross 10 crore nett for its second weekend. The film is doing best in delhi NCR and Mysore.

    The lifetime business of the film should cross 60 crore nett with an outside chance of 65 crore nett if it can hold in the third and fourth weeks of its run.


    • Baba Ji 7 years ago

      65 cr nett is quite an underperformance. it wasnt an out and out art film. it was not even barfi where characters are physically challenged. The low opening of the film did hurt and i think the film is not universally liked especially outside metros. but akshay should not lose hope and keep doing one such movie every year. There is no point in being a wannabe salman and always doing remakes of south. one salman is enough for the industry.

    Murder 3 First Day Business

    Saturday 16th February 2013 11.00 IST

    Boxofficeindia.Com Trade Network

    Murder 3 had a low first day of 3.50-3.75 crore nett which is almost 50% less than the previous Murder film Murder 2 which grossed nearly 7 crore nett on day one when released in 2011.

    Murder 3 did not pick up from the start it had in the morning and therefore will struggle for much growth over the weekend. The film has collected low figures all across the country.

    Jayantabhai Ki Love Story is a very dull performer at the box office with collections around the 50 lakhs mark. Another Vivek Oberoi starrer released a few months Kismet Paisa Love Delhi had similar figures on day one.

    Murder 3 Drops On Second Day

    Sunday 17th February 2013 14.00 IST

    Boxofficeindia.Com Trade Network

    Murder 3 dropped on day two as it collected in the 3.25-3.50 crore nett range. On Friday it had collected closr to 3.75 crore nett. The two day collections are around 7 crore nett plus.

    The film failed to show growth at multiplexes on Saturday as collections came in the same range while single screens which were slightly better on Friday dropped.

    The film should show a jump on Sunday but its likely to be limited. It may turn out that the lifetime business of Murder 3 is less than the weekend business of Murder 2.

    Special 26 Grosses 48 Crore In Ten Days

    Monday 18th February 2013 10.30 IST

    Boxofficeindia.Com Trade Network

    Special 26 has grossed around 48 crore nett in ten days as it added around 9.25 crore nett in its second weekend. The film had better weekend collections than the new release Murder 3 in a couple of circuits. On Sunday it was ahead of Murder 3 at most places as it grossed 4.25-4.50 crore nett compared to the 4 crore nett of Murder 3.

    The film has done decent business in all circuits apart from from Nizam/Andhra with Delhi/UP, East Punjab and Mysore being top performers.

    The film should gross around 53-54 crore nett in two weeks and go to 60 plus for its lifetime business. Basically the lifetime business of the film will be in the same range as Khiladi 786 while the distributor share will be around the 30 crore mark.
