Talaash Boxoffice Collections Thread

Talaash First Day Business

Talaash grossed a good 12.25-12.50 crore nett approx on day one due to strong business at multiplexes. Basically most circuits had strong areas and weak areas be it big circuits or smaller circuits.

A Rajasthan was good in Jaipur and Kota but rest were average, Delhi/UP was strong in Delhi city, Noida and Lucknow but other cities were not as good. Similarly in Mumbai circuit, Mumbai city recorded good collections but in Gujarat only a few cities contributed well. The South Indian circuits of Mysore, Nizam and Tamil Nadu were all strong comparatively.

It’s a good start for the film and now the key will be what sort of improvement can come on Saturday as a 12 crore first day on this release leaves room for plenty of growth on Saturday if the audience takes to the film.

    @mate,

    I think we posted the same article around the same time. I had tweeted this link and posted it on FB. So I deleted your post. Don’t mind.

    It’s Ok Sputnik ji. The main thing is the article not who post that article. 😀

    @narad_muni
    you did it again, hatsoff to you. 😀

    • narad_muni 7 years ago

      Thanks mate…but I am not getting much time for analyzing Talaash BO.
      But I will contribute to it whenever possible.
      Will try to put the estimates for every day in the night before going to bed. 🙂

  5. sauravjha 7 years ago

    I think this will be around 90-95 crore mark. Just went through The Telegraph newspaper of Kolkata it had ppl’s view on it and generally it was negative so I think at best its receiving limited appreciation so being a multiplex oriented movie i see it collecting 90 crores to 95 maximum.

  6. rajesh 7 years ago

    12.5 is not bad, I was thinking of around 10 going by few of yestarday’s commentory. Even in Komal’s show on ETC, the BO response was shown as lukewarm.

  7. sanket porwal 7 years ago

    So I was right. The figures are exactly same as that I predicted – 12.25cr 😀

  8. mate 7 years ago

    Here are 1st day O/S collection of Talaash from main markets getting from Taran tweets. I also mention JTHJ figures of respective days for comparison.

    Talaash
    UK: Fri £ 107,379. 14 locations yet to report.
    JTHJ
    UK: Tue (1st day) £ 161,000, 1st Fri £ 123,000
    Talaash
    UAE + GCC: Thu + Fri $ 750,000
    JTHJ
    UAE + GCC: Thu + Fri $ 10,40,000

    I mention Taran here, as for O/S he can’t manipulate numbers.

  9. Reddemon 7 years ago

    I have a question for those expecting talaash to do less because of its genre.

    As we all know kahani was of a similar genre and it went on to became a blockbuster at box office that too with leading character being an actress. So why cant talaash do good business if it is a good movie??
    If talaash fails to collect that the only reason will be its quality and not the genre.

    We have not seen from a long time a romantic movie succeding at box office but still we expected JTHJ to collect big despite of competition so why so low expectation from talaash??

    • narad_muni 7 years ago

      You are 100% correct. If Talaash is good, it should so 120 crores at least.
      JTHJ at least did 120 as per Taran ..LOL 🙂

      • Reddemon 7 years ago

        Lol. Taran is saying todayz fig may be 16cr. So even talash can do 100 acc to taran.
        BOI reduced 9 crs of jthj otherwise it cud have done sumthng around 115 which was good for the movie it was.

      Talaash Movie Review by Taran Adarsh

      • Author
        sputnik 7 years ago

        @Ritz,

        “The answer lies within…” does not make any sense at all after watching the movie. It should have been “The answer lies beyond” 😉

        • Bored 7 years ago

          LOL

        • Ritz 7 years ago

          Lol…true.

          My earlier guess was that all the mystery is solved within the water – when lead actors are within the water and find out something there itself….and hence the tagline.

          But yes, the tagline was kind of stupid. If they meant that “within” means inner peace with oneself etc – they should not have promoted the movie the way they did.

          I agree with what Tango posted on NG – the promos created different expectations in Indian audience. Not that they were entirely wrong in promoting – just that they had to keep Indian audience mentality in mind….Aamir here failed to set the right expectations.

          • Author
            sputnik 7 years ago

            Yes Aamir promoted the movie wrongly. He should have said its supernatural genre. He made it sound like it was a psychological thriller like there is some serial killer or aamir/rani being killer angle.

            I think they did use the same accident at the same spot in the trailers. They should have use the dog scene too and may be Rani and that shernaz Patel scene – would have set the right expectations for our Indian audience.

          • Baba Ji 7 years ago

            yes this philosophy of finding peace within oneself is what talaash endorses. But in doing so, it conforms to the world of superstitions/black magic.

    • mate 7 years ago

      @Reddemon

      No one amongst the fans expect less from Talaash I can show you many of Aamir’s fans in different forums who predict 150 cr minimum from domestic only, It’s only after watching the final product that they immediately change there priorities, they know how bad the movie is and what’s it’s fate at BO, now they move on to quality cinema, off beat genre, BO is not important for such a genre, Aamir’s daring to choose such dicey subject that make him unique among the current stars and what not… such hypocrites they are. They have different parameters for judging movies of different stars. I bet you If SRK would be in Talaash, they literally would have raped it taking it’s silly plot and thousands of jokes will surround all over regarding the bhootia angle as they did with several Srk movies including JTHJ. But now the same thing is considered as Quality coz their favourite star worked in it. The fact is that a movie of any mainstream star coming after a period of 3 years should break every single record no matter what the genre is, especially for a star like Aamir who has no particular genre associated with him.

      On a rather brief note, one of these shameless guys worshiped IMDB before JTHJ getting good rating from the same source, now the same guy don’t even bother to talk about that source which he used as reference regularly earlier in his comments.

      And yes you are true about JTHJ success. To pull an outdated genre merely on one’s star power in itself is a big achievement. JTHJ releasing on Diwali puja (the worst day for BO collection), an outdated genre, have a competition with a masala flick of another big star, facing lot of controversies/ mishappenings during it’s release; On the other hand, Talaash a solo release of a highly ‘esteemed’ star actor (who can pull any genre as per his fans’ claims) coming after a 3 years gap in a full fledge commercial after the biggest blockbuster of the decade; Firstly the comparison is totally unfair due to obvious reasons, yet it can’t manage to cross the 1st day of former is a real shame. Yet these shameless people come everytime with their agenda driven posts, ridiculed others but actually mocked themselves. Such a loosers they are.

      • Ritz 7 years ago

        @Mate

        Pardon me for my earlier comment. I thought u deleted what u r saying.

        I would like to hear your views about Talaash the movie – sans all the fans-vs-fans view. Are you going to see it or have seen it already?

        • mate 7 years ago

          Yes Ritz bro, I have watched it but liked it only in parts. I find Kahaani more engaging and much better in execution than Talaash. And it’s irrelevant to say whether the plot is silly or how is that possible, it’s illogical so that’s why I did’nt like it, as everyone can use it in either way. I liked Kareena’s act the most, Rani don’t have much to do though both of them have equal supporting role but it’s Kareena who wins me hands down. I think such a movie should have been fast paced, that’s the reason I felt boring at times. Overall 6/10 after 2nd view, 1st time in theatre and 2nd time with pirated version.
          😀

          • Ritz 7 years ago

            ok Mate. What is your rating for Don (srk’s don) ?

            I liked it more than Amitabh’s don for its direction and the slow pace which builds the suspense. But then people didnt like it – contrary I being fan of Amitabh preferred SRK’s don more because of its direction and slow pace….which builds up the atmosphere.

    • Reddemon 7 years ago

      Ritz
      i think the audience are sensible enough to choose their type of movies which i concluded from the fact that single screens and mass centres r not participating enough.
      I totally disagree on ua comment that aamir makes off-beat movies. The only movie that i can recall as little offbeat was TZP (Which was not really an aamir khan muvi). In last decade SRK did more offbeat movies than aamir but that hardly matters to aamir fans as they see what they want to.

      Mate
      agreed. If srk or salman would have been in talaash than they would have bashed it like anything.
      Also, if i say that MNIK was an offbeat movie and so it collected low will they agree? No.

      • Ritz 7 years ago

        @Reddemon

        I would like to hear your views on Talaash – its strenghts and weaknesses as a movie.

    • Ritz 7 years ago

      And what do u have to say abt Don’s slow pace?

      I think it was apt in its pace,

      Kahaani was having some major loopholes. Talaash doesnt have it. It just has one loose ending…

    Talaash Second Day Business

    Sunday 2nd December 2012 11.00 IST
    Boxofficeindia.Com Trade Network
    Talaash had growth on day two as it collected around 14.50 crore nett adding to the 12.50 crore nett it collected on day one. The two day total is around 27 crore nett.

    The film showed huge growth in the North as day one was not too strong. Both Delhi/UP and East Punjab showed 25% growth. Mysore was also fantastic.

    The mass market held collections similar to the day before. If Sunday shows the same growth again the film will come out with a very good weekend.

    • Baba Ji 7 years ago

      looks like it will have a 35 cr weekend . The film will have to trend really well to go past 100 cr.

      • narad_muni 7 years ago

        Baba Ji..what happened to your maths?
        It collectd 27 crores in 2 days..weekend likely to be 42-44.
        It needs decent trending to cross 100, nothing exceptional!

        Good trending should take it past 120.

        • Baba Ji 7 years ago

          haha. sorry i meant 45 cr weeeknd . 😀 ( 12+15+ 18).
          yes it has to do 120 cr lifetime given the expectations from aamir after 3 years since 3i.

          • narad_muni 7 years ago

            Baba JI,
            I think the Sunday jump will be less.
            And, which numbers to take?

            Komal is now giving different (less) numbers than Taran and BOI is obviously even less

  12. Ritz 7 years ago

    “Komal is now giving different (less) numbers than Taran ”

    Is it? Then I guess Excel is not feeding numbers to one of them.

    • Ritz 7 years ago

      I am waiting for Komal’s economics on Talaash.

      If JTHJ was Emotional blockbuster – Talaash is emotional flop.

    • hithere 7 years ago

      Komal 13.5 (initial estimate 14.5) and 15.5.

      I saw on twitter feed that Excel gave 13.5 for friday.

      Taran – Fri Rs 14.52 cr, Sat Rs 16.37 cr. Total: Rs 30.89 cr nett.

      • Baba Ji 7 years ago

        LOL! so taran is giving higher figures than producer numbers? 😀

        • mate 7 years ago

          Yeh to Aamir k pyaar main bawla ho gaya re. Ishq mein to log jaan de dete hain, ye to phir BO number hain. 😀

    “If JTHJ was Emotional blockbuster”

    Emotional Blockbuster ??? Ha Ha .. Ye kaun sa verdict hai ?

  14. Aditya007 7 years ago

    wtH Taran Numbers always Very high ,now we have seen More higher even More Producer’s Numbers. btw BOI’s Commentry seems very bad ,even verdict of Last Srk’s Underperformer JTHJ ,they gave Superhit Tag ,while Movie seems wrap around 103cr.
    About talaash ,movie will earn In week 1 mainly.

    • Baba Ji 7 years ago

      Bullshit nonsensical crap. what is the difference between this and shalus trending thoery for judging wom? she uses the lifetime/weekend ratio and it shud be above 2.5 or something and shailesh uses this 6.6 number.
      He has not given how he adjusts day 1 of films released on holiday. :rofl:

    Talaash Has Very Good Weekend

    Monday 3rd December 2011 11.00 IST
    Boxofficeindia.Com Trade Network

    Talaash had a very good weekend of around 43.50 crore nett. The film had a good start though not great but consolidated over the weekend. The approx business was 12.50 crore nett on Friday, 14.25 crore nett on Saturday and 16.50-17 crore nett on Sunday.

    The film on Sunday also showed good numbers in mass belts as business in areas like Rajasthan, CI and Gujarat showed big jumps. The stand out is Mysore with 3.75 crore nett approx business as Aamir Khan is the biggest star in the circuit by a distance. The under performance has come in Bihar and the Maharashtra areas of CP Berar and Nizam. The film should hold on Monday looking at the weekend trend.

  16. Ritz 7 years ago

    “Komal Nahta ‏@KomalNahta
    North America delivers a stunning US$ 700,000 on Saturday. All time record for a Hindi film ever on a single day.”

    As per Boxofficemojo it is :

    $735,000 for saturday
    and
    $765,000 for Sunday (estimate).

    3 days in US are $1,983,000

    • Ritz 7 years ago

      I havent seen a jump on sunday so far for other movie in US compared to saturday. Btw bomojo is not opening here.
      Are the numbers really record breaking? What was MNIK record? – I know 3I lifetime around 6 million but I think MNIK broke only the opening weekend record.

  17. mate 7 years ago

    @Ritz
    This is Taran’s tweet about highest one day record.
    #MINIK holds the record for highest collections in a single day in USA. Sat $ $733,416, Sun $ $763,966
    First he give $700,000 saturday, and immediately declared it the highest one day grosser, in his over-enthusiasm and love for his fav star.
    Now Talaash looks almost equal considering the estimate figures. THe interesting thing is that Talaash release 50% more screens than MNIK yet hardly equalize/cross it’s 3 years old record.

    • Ritz 7 years ago

      One doesnt need to take Komal or Taran numbers for overseas when there is Bomojo.

      MNIK released on 120 screens while Talaash was 171 screens. Agree that it just about matches 3 years old record but interesting thing is it has done more than many other films off late which were overseas friendly – like JTHJ (161 screens)

      • mate 7 years ago

        Ritz, I just give Taran O/S numbers as reference as BOmojo have some server problem, otherwise no foolish can give priority to Taran numbers over BOmojo, I think now it’s alright. And we are here discussing US market not the whole O/S. Because US market behave differently for different genres unlike other O/S territories. Here people lap up those movies that are intended to make for niche audience, they are not as friendly to romantic genre as say UK audience. A movie with an off-beat theme find a paradise in US market, and having a big star increases its value to many fold. That’s why a certain Guru worked only in this market, and fails elsewhere. I remember how a domestically rejected movie Paheli did a tremendous business in US even higher than many of the hit commercial movies released that year. IMO there, audience are more inclined to the Indian roots, that’s why many South flicks done tremendously well only in this market. That’s the reason, why a south remake Ghajini did great business there, while the same was a washout in UK. JA is another example of finding it’s target audience to a great extent, while failed in others. So Talaash is no exception, there are some other factors like Aamir good-will that he created after 3I, so US audience were waiting anxiously for Talaash than any of other BW release, and the record collection is not surprising at all.
        Note: I am not saying that Talaash is an off-beat movie, that’s is only a misconception that is created in the mind of US audience. Otherwise a movie, shamefully copied from several hw/bw flicks don’t deserve to be called as an off-beat.

  18. Shinji 7 years ago

    Talaash is the 8th highest opening of all time. The film is Aamir Khan’s biggest opening, it may not be his biggest opening day but a day depends on holiday while three days even things out so is a better judge of opening numbers The top fifteen opening weekends in the history of Hindi film industry in terms of nett collections are listed below.

    1. Ek Tha Tiger – 56.11 crore

    2. Ra.One (2011) – 52.93 crore

    3. Bodyguard (2011) – 52.62 crore

    4. Dabangg (2010) – 48.82 crore

    5. Rowdy Rathore (2012) – 46.40 crore

    6. Don 2 (2011) – 46.33 crore

    7. Agneepath (2012) – 45.66 crore

    8. Talaash (2012) – 43.50 crore approx

    http://www.boxofficeindia.com/boxnewsdetail.php?page=shownews&articleid=5165&nCat=

    • Shinji 7 years ago

      I guess star power in today’s day is all about weekend opening a star can give. And imo above if taken at face value shows aamir is clearly no. 1.

      1) All other seven movies are mass movies.
      2) All other movies are holiday release maybe with exception of Rowdy Rathore.
      3) Difference between Rowdy and Talaash = 2.5-3 cr.
      4) All other movies were heavily promoted.

      Enuf Said!

      • Reddemon 7 years ago

        1. Good excuse. Yes Don 2 is a mass movie with 3 item songs and OTT actions attracting masses.
        2. It released on a national holiday
        3. Difference b/w don 2 and talaash is only 3 cr despite the fact that leading star of Don 2 had good will of Ra.one.
        4. Don 2 was heavily promoted and the release date of talaash was not even told to public.

        Huh!

    Talaash predictions

    Guyz,
    I have not been able to provide regular updates…but what I gather is Talaash is not going to sustain.
    Monday looks like 6.5 crores…but I expect weekdays to drop …may be 6.5,5.5,4.5,4/….something like a 20-22 croes weekend. First week 65 crores..lifetime 95 crores with an outside chance of touching 100.

    I am hoping BOI will reduce 10 crores from Talash’s collections as well which will make some Aamir fans who are busy worshipping BOI after they reduced JTHJ by 10-12 crores ) feel the pinch 😉
    If that is the case, Talaash might not cross 90 LOL 🙂

    • Shinji 7 years ago

      lol let’s see, how movie fares, @narad (shilac,if m not wrong) i have got quite a mix wom from net, and positive from public!

      did BOI reduce 10-12 of JTHJ ?

    • mate 7 years ago

      @narad_muni

      I don’t think they will do the same with Talaash. I never believe in Taran/ Komal numbers any time, as I find BOI the most reliable. But I don’t know what the hell is going on with BOI in JTHJ case. They are always 7-8 cr less than Taran/ Komal, but here’s an exception. A difference of 20 cr is undigestable for me as Taran/ Komal are 117.83 cr and BOI gave 98 cr at the end of 2nd week. I think they will definitely revise their figures some time in future. And I totally agree with you on Talaash, I also expect 6-6.5 cr Monday as per BOI, and 90 cr lifetime looks more realistic.

      • Shinji 7 years ago

        Has it ever happened that BOI once reduce the nos from original and again increased? after some time?

        I understood like this from above comments and other reading

        1) They had bigger figure
        2) they reduced
        3) now are u saying they will increase again?

        It wont give much confidence!

        • narad_muni 7 years ago

          Yes, they can change it again..LOL
          BOI is losing confidence by doing this..1-2 crores adjustment is fine.

          Initially they said 92 cr first week, which was anyway 6-7 crores less than Taran.
          Then they reduced it by 10 crores.

          For 2nd week, they said 17.5 crores, which is 1.5 cores less than 19 cr by Taran. Again they reduced by 2 crores.

          Now, Taran/Komal/all other sources are at 118 crores after 2 weeks and BOI is at 98 crores..LOL 🙂

          Imagine if they do this for Talaash, it will struggle to cross 85 crores..And no matter what Aamir fans say now, if the same thing happens for Talaash, they will curse BOI and dump it.

    Talaash: This is serious business
    December 3, 2012

    Talaash demands big efforts from the cast and they deliver. PHOTO: PUBLICITY
    Talaash, as the name suggests, is a film in which people are looking for answers. It has some obvious searches like why did the car end up in water? Who is the killer?

    And then there are the subtly and beautifully embedded intrinsic quests of a father in search of reconciliation with himself, not really by self-flagellation but by being silent. Or a wife in search of her husband whom she lost to a tragic accident in their lives.

    I am disappointed in myself, because it took me over an hour to realise where I had seen Talaash before.

    I hadn’t seen it before, I had read it.

    Talaash is very heavily inspired by, one of my all-time favourite books called, ‘The Fallen’ by T Jefferson Parker. I am disappointed because it took me that long to visualise scenes from my favourite book.

    On my Twitter query to her, director of Talaash, Reema Kagti has denied having read the book which effectively means it’s a mere coincidence, albeit a huge one that almost two thirds of the story and some scenes are a straight lift from the aforementioned book. Nonetheless, while I am in talaash of this answer, there is nothing wrong even if it is heavily inspired from the book.

    Talaash is an almost epic mastery of storytelling.

    Almost because in the end it leaves you with your mouth open and mind confused about whether to love the climax or not. It leaves you questioning your beliefs. If you can believe the twist in the climax, then you will leave the theatre thinking that you have seen one of the best films ever.

    If not, like I did not, then you will struggle to consider Talaash an all-time great, instead, it will become an almost classic for you too. If you put the belief factor aside, you will realise that throughout the film there were cues for you to understand what was happening, but you did not because you were involved in the side tracks too much.

    @mate – Looks like the fall from Friday is 50%. There is no way this movie is going to sustain. 100 crores looks very very difficult. 6.25-6.5 Monday likely and I guess it will keep falling in the weekdays as I said earlier

    Talaash Has Decent Monday

    Tuesday 4th December 2012 10.30 IST
    Boxofficeindia.Com Trade Network

    Talaash had decent collections of around 6.25 crore nett on Monday. Its the normal Monday, the film has not held up really well but nor has it seen a big drop.

    The total after four days is 50 crore nett plus. The film will now depend on how well the multiplexes hold up over the weekdays and single screens will show big drops and Khiladi 786 will dominate single screens from Friday onwards.

    The drops are around 50% in most circuits though Gujarat has seen a bigger drop and Mysore is also likely to be a bigger drop due to the huge start on day one.

    ‘Talaash’ takes smashing start, collects Rs 27.57 cr!
    By Taran Adarsh,(For Reported Centres only)
    TALAASH has fetched one of the biggest starts in the international arena. Although not an ‘Overseas friendly’ genre, the suspense thriller has packed a solid weekend in all major markets, thereby amassing a big, fat total at the end of its opening weekend — $ 5.034 million [Rs 27.57 crores] from 43 countries … Telugu film KRISHNAM VANDE JAGADGURUM has also embarked on a superb start in U.S.A. … JAB TAK HAI JAAN is a Blockbuster in Overseas. The total stands at $ 12.37 million [Rs 67.75 crores] after its third weekend.

    “I havent seen a jump on sunday so far for other movie in US compared to saturday.”

    Agreed Ritz, it not only take a jump of -43% from Saturday, but a jump of -14% from Friday as well. 😛

    • Ritz 7 years ago

      Yes mate. I had put them as estimates. I was suspicious of tose numbers.
      In US usually a movie is lesser on Sunday – than say a saturday.

      Btw 5Million+ opening weekend is good. Taran has corrected his numbers according to Bomojo

  29. narad_muni 7 years ago

    taran – #Talaash Mon 6.3 cr. Total: Rs 53.4 cr nett. Holding well at multiplexes of urban centres.
    BOI says 6.25.
    —————
    So, BOI and Taran numbers matching!!!!! hmmmmmmmm.
    Hope BOI reduces some 10-15 crores later.

    Looks like Talaash might not cross 100 even as per Taran/Komal .. 😀

      Aap bade kush lagte hai Muni ji 🙂

      btw, seen Talaash?

      Abt Taran,komal – On aamir’s films everyone is always consistent. 😉

      • narad_muni 7 years ago

        ha ha ha..
        I will be real happy if BOI reduces Talaash’s collections by 10-15 crores.

        Then your prediction might come true.

        I think the lowest it could do is 90 as I had said in my predictions thread

        • Ritz 7 years ago

          90cr is highest for it now.

          What went wrong is economics.

          If you go by producer profit – excel sold it to reliance only theatrical rights for 90cr against 45cr budget – so 45cr profit + satellite+music = Excel +AKP pocketed around 80cr profit- without Aamir fees as he is producer.

          But distributors will make huge losses – around 30cr+.

          Cant believe Aamir sold it for so high price to Reliance. Where did his honesty go? He had not sold satellite rights of DG even when he was getting high price and insisted on waiting for its theatrical performance – now when from interviews he seemed to know the BO output of Talaash – why did he sell for high price? Or was it Ritesh / Excel who were having more say in the deal?

          • Milind 7 years ago

            Ra.;One was sold to distributors at 77 crores.Komal had its budget at 125 crores.Tab kaha gaya tha economics…Talash is more than an Epic Flop–it is a shame on a genre called Suspense thriller.Even Ra.oNE SANS CLIMAX WAS A DECENT ONE FOR SUPERHERO STUFF!

      sputnik 7 years ago

      Taran has increased it.

      #Talaash *revised* Mon 6.74 cr. Total: Rs 53.84 cr nett.

  30. Ritz 7 years ago

    As I had predicted on 30th after seeing the film, it will not do more than 70-75cr.
    Overseas will wind up at around 8-10million == 40-50Cr

    Distributor share will be 35India + 20-25 Overseas == 55 to 60cr worldwide.

    Reliance has bought it for 90cr – so huge loss of 30cr+ for reliance.

    Just when everyone was saying none of the Khans can give a flop due to weekend era and huge prints etc – aamir is the first one who gives a disaster.

    Economics went wrong here due to selling price. But it is what it is.

  31. Baba Ji 7 years ago

    i had predicted 5.5 cr. a 55% drop. acc to boi ,monday is 6.25 cr so a drop is 50% from fri. the film might make losses now as it has slight chance to reach 100 cr. it is not going to trend .it is going to go further down next fri as k786 releases.

  32. Ritz 7 years ago

    Economics of Talaash by Komal

    So as per him Excel gave it to Reliance on advance basis of 60cr.

    • Ritz 7 years ago

      41cr satellite is an exaggeration – it always is for every film. It will be around 30cr after deducting taxes – or maybe even 25cr as the deal is always negotiable as per BO performance of the film.

      So Talaash from producer pov will make around

      (minimum figures)
      35cr India distributor share
      15Cr Overseas distributor share
      30Cr satellite
      5cr – music +dvd

      Total 85cr against an investment of 45cr.

      Out of the 40cr profit – Excel + Akp may have to return 10cr to Reliance (if Talaash does 75Cr India theatrical nett) as it was advance basis. Plus some profits – say 10Cr. Still the movie will be in plus by this.

      Yes, Aamir will make less but its not a flop by this calculation. Makes me feel good 🙂

      • Baba Ji 7 years ago

        ritz – ” Excel + Akp may have to return 10cr to Reliance ”

        it seems you are trying to convince yourself that talaash is not a flop bcos excel is reimbursing the money to reliance for it to breakeven as talaash has underperformed. will you then accept ra1 was also a recovery bcos srk did the same? hrithik had returned 10 cr to utv from his 15 cr fees in guzaarish. these things dont matter in BO verdicts.

        • Ritz 7 years ago

          I dont know about Guzaarish – never followed its BO. But I did follow Ra.One and at the end I came to know its not a failure in entirity. Same thing happened with another film which I endorsed – Endhiran/Robot.

  33. mate 7 years ago

    Ritz bhaiyaa,
    Ap ne to apne sath mera bhi emotional attayachar kar diya.
    Anyway, Talaash is a gone case, now forget about it. Aamir will find other opportunities as he has the best lineup amongst all the Khans. Now we should concentrate on Dabangg 2, that will be a turning point in Salman’s career, mark my words. 😉

    • Ritz 7 years ago

        Yeah, you are correct, JTHJ collects 120 cr domestic and 68 cr O/S till now. So It’s a Blockbuster worldwide. 🙂

  34. hello 7 years ago

    Its a underperformer if it dosent do atleast 100 cr but not a flop at all that will make some ppl disappointed as they were already started celebrating and now if someone says he dosent believe Komal , Taran and BOI they should stop being Hypocrites and stop using their numbers too . Aamir is a very wise businessman and he would never sell a film like Talaash for a huge price as he himself said before the release that this is no dabangg and we are not expecting huge boxoffice numbers and he also didnt promote the film much except for the last week before the release

    • Baba Ji 7 years ago

  35. Ritz 7 years ago

    Movies I liked this year in following order

    1) Vikky Donar
    2) Talaash
    3) Agent Vinod
    4) Rowdy Rathore
    5) OMG
    6) Kahaani

    Havent seen others. Saw only Talaash without reading reviews but others I saw kind of late – maybe with exception of Agent Vinod. Havent seen many acclaimed movies like English Vinglish or Paan Tomar singh. But I may not see it unless it is on TV. I wish to see Aiyya though and I even tried booking it couple of times and cudnt book due to some internet / Tata sky issues – and it was out of theater next week. But I will definitely see it as it looks interesting.

    Agent Vinod was the only film in above list of mine which was panned by critics and rejected on BO. But I really liked it.

    LOL Guzarish was a FLOP that was accepted by the whole trade as for Raone the budget was 175 cr as per BOI so need to compare those 2 films to Talaash.

    • Baba Ji 7 years ago

      Both guz and ra1 are flops. Talaash may well be on its way. everyone remembers how blatantly you celebrated the failure of ra1 even tho it was a hit by taran,komal and boi. you discarded their BO analysis and verdict. now the commentaries of those 3 seems to have become the commandments of God for you all of a sudden ?

  39. Ritz 7 years ago

    @Baba – are you kind of disappointed with 60cr advance selling to reliance quoted by Komal? (vis-a-vis 90cr figure reported earlier)

    I was kind of expecting this kind of deal from aamir – knowing Aamir as businessman – he never oversells.

Do you even have a one reliable source that says Talaash is or will be a flop or Reliance will make losses ? BTW baba before the release of Talaash we had a deal that we will go with BOI , taran and komal . i am keeping my word u should keep urs and wait for taran and boi to comment on talaash’s verdict and btw u are not some flag bearer of verdicts, economics, profit/loss of a movie so really dont care what you think just came here to remind you about the deal we had .

    • Milind 7 years ago

      Where did BOI say it was 175 crores?Even if it said..SRK sold it to EROS..principal distributors at 77 crores and arranged for other resources like tie-ups to the tune of 51 crores to compensate.Why not understand all this?Good that Talaash flopped thats making you fight for all of it.

      Quote BOI/Taran/Komal calling Ra.One a flop..dont fool around!!

    • Baba Ji 7 years ago

      hello – the bet was about going ahead with BOI numbers. We both are doing that. I am not a fool to make bets on BOI verdicts whom i have laughed at since its inception. you are lying on the verdict thing.I will accept the cost figure given by BOI too. But I have also given you enuff links of talaaash acquisiton costs from authentic links. anyway dont be lead to think that I have an agenda against talaash.

    During MNIK it was all about the distributor and how much it was sold for. During RaOne the distributor and how much it was not sold for did not matter at all. It was all about the budget then.

    Anyways here is Komal Nahta article saying RaOne recovered its cost in Week 1.

    “Ra.One, easily the most publicised film of recent times, did not live up to the crazy hype generated for it. Although it has collected impressively in the first 9-day week, the grand collections are a result of the 5-day weekend after which collections dropped pretty fast. The first week ended at around Rs. 100 crore (all-India net collection). If the dubbed Tamil and dubbed Telugu versions are also taken into account, the net all-India collection figure is approximately Rs. 108-110 crore. It’s the same story in the Overseas circuit where also the drop was alarming after the weekend. In the Overseas territory, the film collected an equivalent of Rs. 37 crore during the 9-day week.
    Ra.One: Outlook For 2nd Week

    The second week started on dull collections. Although it is a long weekend (Bakr Eid holiday on Monday, November 7), the revenues may not be enviable due to a sizeable section of the audience not approving of the film and, thereby, contributing to negative mouth publicity.
    Ra.One: Economics

    Nevertheless, the high-budgeted film has recovered its entire cost at the end of week 1 after taking into account the first week’s India and Overseas theatrical shares (Rs. 70 crore), revenues from satellite, audio and other ancillary rights (Rs. 40 crore) and subsidy receivable from the UK government (Rs. 28 crore). What comes in now from Indian and Overseas theatres would go towards commission for the film. Exhibitors of small centres would lose part of their MGs (minimum guarantees) and FHs (fixed hires).”

    baba boi verdicts are a joke i am not talking about that i am asking u to wait for boi to comment on Talaash cost also i am going with boxoffice numbers and not taran/komal eventhough their number are 2-3 cr higher compared to BOI as for spin baba u too knows that happens with srk films if u dont believe me then check the numbers of JTHJ the difference between BOI and Taran/komal numbers are 17 cr nobody is pumping Talaash nos dfference between BOI and Taran/komal is 2-3 cr thats happens with almost all films . Monday numbers of talaash are 6.25 as per both Komal and BOI so where is the spin ? btw i know the links you gave me earlier but not once Reliance confirmed they got Talaash for 90 cr i kept telling u the same thing back then too but u didnt believe me . Media says all sorts of things u believe everything ? sometime back i read Dhoom 3 budget is 200 cr and Dabangg is sold for 150 cr which Arbaaz denied next day and milind u can check with baba that boi did say cost of Raone was 175 cr if u dont believe me.

    • Baba Ji 7 years ago

      ritz is mentioning about reimbursing money back to reliance. i was refering to that when i said spin. when did distributors of ra1 confirmed the cost of ra1? no one does. even when boi had not given the cost, we always beleieved 175-180 was the cost bcos thats what toi/HT said.

          They are saying “The landing cost will probably be around the 175 crore plus by the time it is releases everywhere..”

            Besides, there is no mention of whether its a budget or selling price. Its too vague and too early before the release.

          ritz – when i said “even when boi had not given the cost” i meant at that point of time ,boi had not given the cost of ra1 but we knew it was in the 175-180 range going by media articles. I knew BOI gave that 175 cr number later. infact i have many times quoted that link 😀

      When did Fox confirm that it bought MNIK for 100 Cr? When did Eros confirm that they bought RaOne for 175 Cr? And SRK said on video a couple of days before release that it cost him only 125 Cr.

      Its always the same. People want to take the highest number for cost/sold number and take the lowest number for collections for other stars but take the lowest cost/sold number and take the highest collections for their favorite star.

    There are no secrets regarding Talaash economics, very much as Komal ji says.

    The film has a total worldwide release cost of 45 crore (sans Amir’s fee, as he is a partner in production, like SRK for JTHJ). And very much like JTHJ, the makers (Reliance) are also the worldwide distributors, so the equations becomes easier.

    They have already pre-sold the satellite rights for 40 crore.

    • Author
      sputnik 7 years ago

      Well Tango is a Komal fan and he usually goes by whatever Komal says.

      The point is one cannot pick and choose. One cannot say I will believe in Komal for Talaash but I wont believe him for RaOne/JTHJ or vice versa. Either Komal is honest and believe his economics thing for Talaash, JTHJ, RaOne or he is dishonest and dont believe him on Talaash, JTHJ, RaOne.

      • Ritz 7 years ago

        JTHJ was a clean case as YRF distribute themselves.

        The ambiguity was mainly over MNIK with Komal – (as far as I am concerned) – he kind of backtracked.

  50. hello 7 years ago

    was talking about SOS being a 80 cr film but declared a HIT here is one more comment of Tango : The diff between JTHJ & Talaash (as I have said above) is that SOS makers are not the distributors.

    EROS bought the worldwide rights of SOS from Viacom 18 & Ajay for 80-85 crore, so they have to recover/make profit on their investment, from the worldwide theatrical run.

    Had Viacom 18 released the SOS themselves, or thru Devgan’s distribution netwerk, based on the 40-45 crore budget, it would have been termed a hit plus by now.

    The final outcome (as rating is from distributors point of view, not producers) will depend on how much profit EROS make over their 80-85 crore investment in SOS.

  51. hello 7 years ago

    Talaash Has Dropping Collections On Weekdays

    Wednesday 6th December 2012 10.00 IST
    Boxofficeindia.Com Trade Network

    Talaash has seen dropping collections over the weekdays. Monday had fair collections of 6 crore nett plus but as has been seen in the past 6-8 months the key today has become the daily falls over the Mon-Thurs period. A film needs at least to hold or consolidate on one day but Talaash is going down 15-20% every day.

    The collections on Monday were 6 crore nett plus, Tuesday was around 5 crore nett and Wednesday was 4 crore nett while Thursday will be another 15-20% drop. The first week business of the film is looking to be 63 crore nett. The second week is will see bulk of the business coming from metro multiplexes.

    • narad_muni 7 years ago

      The way it is dropping even 90 crores looks to be difficult..more like 85 (as per BOI).
      taran will have 90-95 odd

      Imagine this – Talaash first Thursday collection(Day 7) will be same as JTHJ first Thursday collection (Day 10)….terrible trending and clearly shows that the WOM is even worse than JTHJ

    Talaash Down On Second Friday

    Talaash dropped on its second Friday collecting around 2.25 crore nett. The drop is more than 80% from day one. The drops is across all circuits of India. There should be a pick up on Saturday and Sunday but still the second weekend will show a big drop.

    The lifetime business of the film is looking to be around 85 crore nett which is not that good but with a poor showing by another big film Khiladi 786 this week it makes the total look more respectable.

    The poor fate of Khiladi 786 at multiplexes actually helped Talaash on it’s second Friday, if Khiladi 786 had scored then Talaash would of showed an even bigger drop.

      WTF! boy this is a shocker. 3 years after 3i with 2500 prints and the most prestigous bw star who is perhaps beyond BO rankings might not cross even OMG. big big blow. both talaash and jthj are rejected films like k786 is going to be. daabng will do better than these jokers for sure.

      • Tulmul 7 years ago

        So another khan bited the Dust :D. i was the 1st one on SB to say it will flop…

        No one can Escape from the law of Averages…

        No doubt they are rejected films as per as neutrals are concerned.. fans never dislike movie 😛

        Don’t worry LOA will catch up with Sallu also…

      • sneha 7 years ago

        @Baba – All of a sudden u hav become a dabang fan 😛

      • Ritz 7 years ago

        Talaash is not rejected in that sense. The audience for the movie is exhausted probably as because of its limited reach/appeal.
        I have always said When a movie is really rejected in true sense it does not grow over weekend fri-sat-sun. We saw that happening with Kites and maybe now with K786. Collections start dropping from next day onwards or same day evening of release.

        Now one can take this as a excuse/frustration or genuine observation 😛
        (and pls dont forget to thank me if this comment entertains you to do a lol)

        PS: Above is my observation about normal weekends. Diwali pooja and Ramadan releases may have different pattern due to the nature of festivities; and even the other Holiday releases.

          i was about to comment abt ra.one as u commented abt talaash but alas that p.s. Destroyed it. So i will just LOL and move on

    • Ritz 7 years ago

      BOI is again overestimating it to reach 85cr. How come with such drops it can go there? Should wind up 75cr+

  60. sneha 7 years ago

    why so surprised that Talaash ll be a Flop ??? wch movies are u looking fwd nw ??

  61. sneha 7 years ago

    Like AA said no can escape Law of Avg… Lets nw see wot can Dabangg2 do with double the prints Of Dabangg, the genre being the flavour of the season and after ETT the second Biggest Hit in the history wch collected 186cr and salman at its peak like no one before( 4 Back to back BB )…. So hw mch you want it to Earn to not qualify it as a perception FLOP ??

  62. hello 7 years ago

    AA and sneha does not seem to know the difference between an undeperformer and a fop . i dont know nor i care how much they expected Talaash to do before the release couz Verdicts of films dont rely on your expectations . Whether the movie is a HIT or a FLOP is based on Cost Vs revenues as simple as that so dont try to confuse others .AA i know u were the first one on SB to say Talaash will be a flop is that why u are so desperate to label Talaash as a flop ? Talaash dosent need a stamp of approval from any wanna be self-proclaimed trade analysts and as for dabangg even if it ends up matching Dabangg 1 it will be a HIT/SuperHIT.

    • Baba Ji 7 years ago

      “couz Verdicts of films dont rely on your expectations .Whether the movie is a HIT or a FLOP is based on Cost Vs revenues ”

      so you are a ROI theory propagandist. but ROI theory is critised by trending theory propagandists as not showing the true picture. Personally i prefer ROI to trending.What do you think of EVA method? it takes into account both ROI factor and expectations factor.

  63. hello 7 years ago

    Baba personally i am not a fan of trending theory this method worked till 2006-08 when films were releasing with 700 – 1000 prints a film doing a 35 cr week was a big deal then now films are challenging the 30 cr number on first day itself so things have changed quiet a lot now . ETT is a 2nd highest grosser all of All time made huge profits too but still some ppl call it an underperformer couz it trended poorly and thats why its quiet tough for me to support this trending theory but yes one factor i take into account a commerical film from any of the top stars needs to have atleast have a decent to good theatrical run irrespective of the cost of the film. i will always give some leeway to stars like Aamir/HR and Ranbir couz they try to do different films from time to time so chances of failure are more compared to Srk and specially salman who only stick to one kind of films.

    • Reddemon 7 years ago

      Hello
      tell me a genre that aamir did and srk didnt do dat and i will tell u genres which srk did and aamir didnt do and lets check who tries diff things

  64. Ritz 7 years ago

    If Talaash,Ra.One,Don2 are hits then Khatta Meetha, DDD, Kambakth Ishq are also hits.

    Talaash Grosses 75 Crore In Ten Days

    Saturday 9th December 2012 11.30 IST
    Boxofficeindia.Com Trade Network

    Talaash has grossed 75 crore nett approx ten days as it grossed around 10.50 crore nett in its second weekend. The film had a good jump of 60-65% on Saturday.

    The film has dropped in most markets but cities with high concentration of premium multiplexes like Mumbai, Pune, Delhi, Gurgaon, Kolkata and Bangalore are doing pretty well. These areas all have high ticket rates so therefore the film has managed fair collections in second weekend despite limited appreciation.

    The film had heavy drops in places like CPCI and Rajasthan where Khiladi 786 has done its best business. There is no release next week and if the premium multiplexes can give good performance next weekend, Talaash can go towards 90 crore nett and a share of around 45 crore.

    http://www.boxofficeindia.com/boxnewsdetail.php?page=shownews&articleid=5187&nCat=

  67. sauravjha 7 years ago

    Yes the way its going Talaash has good chance to cross 90 maybe 95 cos there are no releases till 21st n also Khiladi’s limited appreciation has also helped the cause. Overall not a bad result for this kind of a film.

  68. Ritz 7 years ago

    Talaash Is Third Biggest Grosser Overseas Of 2012

    United Kingdom – £715,000
    North America – $2,400,000
    UAE – $1,900,000
    Australia – $565,000

    • Ritz 7 years ago

      BOI said DS will be around 45cr. Overseas DS is already around 20.

      It has surpassed the expectations which Komal had predicted (40+15) . The movie is in plus for reliance.

  69. Vikas 7 years ago

    GUYS..FIRST GET THE FACTS RIGHT…THE ONLY MOVIE THAT “TALAASH’ CAN BE COMPARED TO IN RECENT TIMES IS “KAHAANI” AND “DUM MARO DUM” THESE MOVIES ARE OF THE SAME GENRE AND NO OTHER MOVIE.. WHILE KAHAANI WAS AN OUT AND OUT REAL SUSPENSE MOVIE, TALAASH WAS A SUPERNATURAL SUSPENSE MOVIE. THE COMMERCIAL AND CRITICAL RISK INVOLVED FOR A MOVIE LIKE “TALAASH” FROM THE SCRIPT STAGE ITSELF WAS 10 TIMES MORE THAN THAT OF KAHAANI. AGREED KAHAANI WAS A BETTER MOVIE IN THE SUSPENSE GENRE. BUT IT TAKE LOT OF GUTS TO MAKE A MOVIE LIKE TALAASH AND MAKE IT A PROFITABLE VENTURE.

    PLUS TALAASH IS 17TH ON THE ALL TIME MOST POPULAR THRILLERS ON IMDB. DONT BELIEVE ME, THEN CLICK ON
    http://www.imdb.com/genre/thriller BE PROUD OF THE FACT THAT AN INDIAN MOVIE IS IN THE TOP 20 IN THE ALL TIME LIST ON IMDB. ITS RATED BETTER THAN PULP FICTION AND MOVIES LIKE EXPENDABLES 2. SO RESPECT AND LEARN TO APPRECIATE THIS MOVIE.

    NOW COMING TO THE BUSINESS TALAASH WAS MADE AT A BUDGET OF 40 CR, ALTHOUGH IT WAS UNDER PROMOTED 5 CR WAS SPEND ON PRINT AND MARKETING OF THE MOVIE SO 45 CR. THE MOVIE WAS SOLD TO RELIANCE FOR 90 CR. FETCHED 40 CR FOR SATELLITE RIGHTS AND 5 CR FOR MUSIC AND HOME VIDEO RIGHTS SO THATS 135 CR IN TOTAL. PLUS THE MOVIE WILL END UP MAKING 90 CR NETT FROM DOMESTIC AND 45 CR NET FROM OVERSEAS AT THE END OF IT S RUN. SO THAT IS 135 CR NETT BOXOFFICE COLLECTIONS. NOW FOR A 45 CR MOVIE THE REVENUE GENERATED IS NOT BAD AINT IT????? NOW SOMEONE WITH LITTLE BRAINS DO THE MATH AN SEE WHO IS LAUUGHING TO THE BANK…ITS AAMIR AND EXCEL PRODUCTIONS. THEY ARE TAKING HOME MINIMUM 90 CR CLEAN PROFIT. AND RELIANCE MINIMUM 40 CR. EVEN WITH THE MOST CONSERVATIVE FIGURES THAT IS. ( I CORRECTED THE FIGURES FROM MY EARLIER COMMENT, THIS WOULD A APPROX GENUINE FIGURE)

    SO TO CONCLUDE TALAASH IS JUST ABOUT A “HIT” IN INDIA AND “SUPER HIT” IN OVERSEAS. BUT KUDOS TO AAMIR FOR ATLEAST PUTTING ONE INDIAN MOVIE IN THE IMDB ALL TIME TOP 20 LIST FOR THRILLERS.

    FOR AAMIR HATERS, SOME OF THE “HIT” MOVIES INCLUDE “KABHI ALVIDA NA KEHNA”, “MY NAME IS KHAN”, “RAONE”, THESE MOVIES LIKE TALAASH WERE ALSO JUST DECLARED “HIT” MOVIES IN INDIA DOMESTICALLY. THE TAG OF HIT OR SUPERHIT OR BLOCKBUSTER IS NOT GIVEN ON HOW MUCH THE MOVIE COLLECTED, BUT BASED ON THE BUDGET AND OVERALL ECONOMICS OF THE MOVIE.

    PLUS IN THE WORLD OF SOCIAL NETWORKING, FACEBOOK AND TWITTER AND EMAILS AND SKYPE AND PRINT MEDIA, TELEVISION, CREATES A BIG HURDLE COMMERCIALLY FOR SUSPENSE MOVIES GENRE. OTHERWISE IF THESE MOVIES CAME BEFORE 2000 THEN MOVIES LIKE KAHAANI, DUM MARO DUM AND TALAASH MAY HAVE COLLECTED TWICE AS MORE AS THIS, INFLATION ADJUSTED THAT IS. JUST A FOOD FOR THOUGHT. SO INSTEAD OF PULLING THIS MOVIE DOWN WITH ALL YOUR MIGHT, APPRECIATE THE RISK TAKERS INVOLVED IN THIS PROJECT THAT IS AAMIR AND EXCEL.

    PLUS IF YOU WANT TO COMPARE AAMIR, SRK AND SALMAN MOVIES THEN COMPARE BOXOFFICE COLLECTIONS OF,

    GHAJINI AND 3 IDIOTS WITH DON2 AND JTHJ OR WITH BODYGUARD AND EK THA TIGER

    IF YOU WANT TO COMPARE TALAASH THEN COMPARE

    TALAASH WITH SWADES /PAHELI OR WITH KYON KI / TERE NAAM OF SALMAN (DIFFERENT GENRE’S)

    THATS CALLED COMPARING APPLES WITH APPLES, FAIR COMPARISONS.

      First of all what’s with the CAPS. Don’t you know that typing in CAPS is considered screaming?

      If you are going to use IMDB ratings then JTHJ (7.6) has a higher rating than Talaash (7.5) and with more votes.

      http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1787988/

      http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2176013/

      Ghajini was masala movie 3 Idiots was comedy. So how is Don 2 a Hollywood styled heist thriller with no OTT action and only one song same as those two movies?

      JTHJ is a romantic movie with no action scenes so how is it similar to Bodyguard a masala movie or ETT which is a action thriller?

      • Vikas 7 years ago

        Caps on means screaming eh… 🙂 … precisely..needed to do that for foks like you..good you read everything i wrote. Nice 🙂

        As far as IMDB is concerned “Main hoon na”, “Don 2” , “Om shanti OM” “Kabhi Khushi Kabhi gham” were all 10 times better than the crappy “Jab tak hai jaan” still “JTHJ” HAS HIGHER RATING THAN THE ABOVE MENTIONED SRK MOVIES” …so that doesnt make JTHJ a better movie than these ones. Do you get it. or you need more explanation Mr.

        Plus ratings and All time most popular thriller list is not the same, cant you use common sense, oops you dont have it sorry 🙂

        As far as your other question is concerned, Ghajini, Fanaa, 3 idiots are out and out commercial movies like JTHJ, DON 2, Ra one, also like Bodyguard, Ready, Dabangg

        whereas TZP, Rang de basanti, Talaash are different movies with less commercial potential, they are risky attempts same like Swades, Paheli etc or for Salmans movie like Kyonki, Terenaam (Sadly these are the closest risky movies Salman has attempted) . And the WORLD knows Aamir excels when it comes to such genre. And come on guys please..use your logic Aamir’s Dhoom 3 or P.K. will cross 100CR’s in 6-8 days…as those are again out and out commercial movies..so please use logic and stop thinking box office numbers make a movie good or bad. Don 2 / Rang de basanti / Zindagi milegi na dobara were a better movie than JTHJ or Bodyguard or Ready..but the collections are less than these movies, that doesnt make Don 2 / RDB / ZMND bad movies. So be fair and square. AND COMPARE BOXOFFICE COLLECTIONS GENRE WISE AND NOT ACTOR OR STAR WISE ..DUH… I know Ignorance is bliss but still, grow up.

        Did you get it now mr?? Come to terms with reality bro. Best of luck.

    • Ankur 7 years ago

      @Vikas

      Even if compared with Kahani Talaash is an underperformer! Kahani had no big banners behind it, no recognisable male superstar, not much marketing, just a deglamourised Vidya Balan, released in exam period month (March) in India & its release size was not even comparable to Talaash. Still it got more acclaim & was clear cut super hit! Barfi was an offbeat film, released in non holiday period, young star Ranbir & leads playing disabled characters, no big banner – yet it crossed 100 crore nett!

      Aamir is hyped as some Midas touch man so what did he manage for Talaash?! Its acclaim is way behind Kahani, Barfi. Wasn’t Aamir the one to get top ratings on IMDb & Rotten Tomatoes? RT rating of Talaash is lower than Dhobi Ghat!

      You talked of Most popular thrillers? Any recent release makes it to that Most popular list on IMDb! It is not an all time list! Talaash is nowhere in all time lists on IMDb & will soon come down in recent popular list too.

      For how long will Aamir fans keep using Ghajini & 3 Idiots eh? How’s Talaash a risk? It is not a Dhobi Ghat! It had two big banners coming together, biggest stars & its story is not so radical that no one can understand it! A ghost avenging her death is a done to death theme in Indian cinema! What’s risky or radically different about it?

      Other stars’ rejected films made 100 crore domestically & 200 crore worldwide. Whereas Aamir’s film will stop at just about 90 crore with mixed WOM! It’s collecting less than what Raajneeti collected 2 years ago! Is this the pull of Midas touch Aamir?

      Low budget & economics argument is also used by Aamir fans to call Dhobi Ghat a super hit! They are first ones to spam social networks with jokes on other stars but make excuses themselves in case of Aamir films!

    Off topic but related to Box office:- MNIK has surpassed 3 Idiots record in overseas and is now highest grosser ever abroad albit difference is not much and 3I makers if they release it in new markets they might achieve it again! according to the following link, they are new on twitter but so far whatever collections they have posted others have been quite similar later hence am giving the link here:-

      No Sauravjha…dont go by bogus report, atleast go by some reputed websites, like indiafm, or boxofficeindia or koimoi.com which are well known and recognized websites. Cehck anywhere else also, MNIK is still easily 2 million dollars behind 3 idiots. and keep on dreaming that it will cross 3 idiots.

        @vikas I said they are new on twitter, its your choice if you want to believe them or not. Many people consider BOI or KOIMOI as bogus all go by their own convenience. They said JTHJ crossed 200 a day before n said it will be officialy announced soon and next day it was confirmed by Red chillies.

        And its not my dream that MNIK outgross 3I it has already done tremendously well for itself despite being low on entertainment quotient n wid some flaws whereas 3I is a universal hit so it deserves to be at the top !

  71. sauravjha 7 years ago

    Also according to the same source JTHJ has now crossed 200 crore mark after releasing in 2nd phase and the source claims that YRF and Taran/Komal will soon announce it.

    Talaash Collects 80 Crore In Two Weeks

    Friday 14th December 2012 10.30 IST

    Boxofficeindia.Com Trade Network

    Talaash collected 15.50 crore nett in week two to take its two week total to 80 crore nett. the film fell 76% in week two.

    The film should hold better this week as it is an open week and the big multiplexes have the same number of shows as week two. The two best circuits for the film will be Mumbai where it will cross 32 crore nett and Mysore where it will cross 8 crore nett.

    The film may get to 90 crore nett depending on what happens over the third weekend. As the film is a multiplex film the business on weekends is stronger than the film on weekdays.
