Thugs of Hindostan Box-Office: YRF film continues to bomb consistently

Thugs of Hindostan Box-Office: YRF film continues to bomb consistently

The biggest debacle of 2018 which was touted as the highest grosser before its release, is not even crawling now! Thugs of Hindostan is finding it difficult to collect any further money at the box-office currently. The movie has spent 11 days so far and overall the total collection, in India, stands at just Rs.145.95 crore, till Sunday.

Failing heavily on the expectations of the audiences who were thinking that the duo of Amitabh Bachchan and Amir Khan (who paired with each other for the first ever time) will knock-it-out-of-the-park, were left dejected, disappointed, and cheated (as per the reactions from across the country).

The direction, performances, story, and treatment to the characters, everything has been criticized—harshly by anyone who’s watched the film.

The official box-office report from trade analyst Taran Adarsh says the movie could only earn around Rs.2.46 crore on Sunday.

He took to Twitter to show the overall collection and performance of Thugs of Hindostan in India. In the 2nd week, the Hindi version of the movie earned Rs.1.30 crore on Friday, Rs.1.70 crore on Saturday, and Rs.2.46 crore on Sunday. While the Tamil + Telugu version earned around Rs.4 lakhs on Friday, Rs.5 lakhs on Saturday, and Rs. 6 lakhs on Sunday.

So, the overall total of all the versions after adding 2nd week’s collections comes to Rs.145.95 crore till now. It can’t be called even an underperformer, because an underperformer also doesn’t earn so less.

Overseas too, the disaster movie is doing no good at all. After week 1, the collections abroad were around $7.80 million (Rs.56.11 crore), which included USA + Canada ($1.76 million), UAE + GCC ($2.72 million), and UK ($810k). In the rest of the world, it managed to earn around $2.51 million, according to the report of Taran Adarsh.

Reports also came a few days back that actor Amir Khan will not be getting any earnings from Thugs of Hindostan since he only takes the profit share from any film he does. But since TOH is a big-big flop now, so there’s no profit all. It’s his biggest, official, first flop in around 18 years. Till now he was riding on a success train that saw films like Lagaan, Rang De Basanti, Ghajini, 3 Idiots, Dhoom 3, PK, and the all-time hit movie, Dangal, creating new box-office benchmarks.

Directed by Vijay Krishna Acharya, Thugs of Hindostan also stars Katrina Kaif and Fatima Sana Sheikh and is produced by Yash Raj Films. It was released on November 8th, 2018.

Box-Office: Simmba earns Rs.20 crore on first day!

Box-Office: Simmba earns Rs.20 crore on first day!

Rohit Shetty’s latest masala-action directorial Simmba has made a roaring impact on box-office and has managed to earn around Rs.20 crore on its first day itself, in India. It’s also Ranveer Singh’s highest opening among any of his films, in his career.

Simmba, which also stars actress Sara Ali Khan, is being received positively by the audiences in theaters and fans are cheering for the action and style of the film. The exact amount of the film’s first-day collection is around Rs.20.72 crore.

The movie has also become the sixth best highest earning film as far as the opening day is concerned. It beat the likes of 2.0 (Rs.20.45 cr), Zero (Rs.20.14 cr), Satyamev Jayate (Rs.19.50 cr), Padmaavat (Rs.19 cr), Veere Di Wedding (Rs.10.70 cr), and Padman (Rs.10.26 cr).

But it got left out behind some mighty grossers like Thugs of Hindostan (Rs.52.25 cr), Sanju (34.75 cr), Race 3 (Rs.28.50 cr), Gold (Rs.25.25 cr), and Baaghi 2 (Rs.25.10 cr).

Talking of its overseas business then Simmba earned about Australian $188,253 from Australia, which is also more than Rohit Shetty’s previous directorial Golmaal Again which collected about Australia $66,990 in Australia, back in 2017.

Simmba was released on around 4,020 screens across India and the budget of the film is about Rs.85 crore. It was also released on 963 screens in overseas markets.

The film is about a corrupt cop whose only motive is to earn endless money in his life but one tragic incident in his life transforms him completely, for the good. And then he becomes an honest and good-hearted, fearless police inspector.

Simmba is an official remake of southern Telugu language film, Temper, and upon its trailer’s release, a month ago, it got mixed to good reactions with many fans calling it just a copy-paste of Temper’s scenes.

But now that the film has been released and even though it’s a remake, still many moviegoers are going to watch it. The only reason is the treatment given to the story and how it’s been presented by Rohit Shetty. Since he is known for his own style when it comes to masala movies, so Simmba also gained an advantage from this.

The movie is currently running successfully in theaters.

Rajnikant’s 2.0 enters 700 Crore club to create records, surpasses Prabhas’ Bahubali 2

Rajnikant’s 2.0 enters 700 Crore club to create records, surpasses Prabhas' Bahubali 2

No no don’t get too serious about the second part of my head line! It is not that true what you think!

Talking about 2.0, the Rajnikant and Akshay Kumar starrer dynamic flick is still continuing its record breaking spree since it released. The film hit the silver screens on November 26 this year, releasing in over 10,500 screens all over the world. It has broken several records since its release.

It has been 24 days since it has been released, and the film has still sustained its income. Though it took a dip in income in the domestic and international market because of the Hollywood movie Aquaman. Yet another milestone has been added to its list. The film has crossed ₹ 700 Crore mark on 17th December as calculated by experts.

As calculated, the income figure is said to be around ₹ 710.98 Crores. With this, 2.0 has become the first Kollywood film of 2018 to income ₹ 700 crores. And, it has beaten Rajkumar Hirani’s Sanju and Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmavat to become the first Indian movie to cross ₹ 700 Crore mark in the calendar year 2018. The income of Sanju and Padmavat were ₹ 542 Cr and ₹ 560 Cr respectively.

According to reports, it is also the first ever Kollywood film to have ₹700 Cr income worldwide. The income reports as calculated till now are – Week 1 – ₹ 526.86 Cr, Week 2: Day 1 – ₹ 27.31 Cr, Day 2 – ₹ 32.57 Cr, Day 3 – ₹ 36.45 Cr, Day 4 – ₹ 39.20 Cr, Day 5 – ₹ 17.13 Cr, Day 6 – ₹ 14.66 Cr, Day 7 – ₹ 16.80cCr, Total – ₹ 710.98 Cr. According to critics, only the Hindi dubbed version of the film has ₹ 222.65 Crores gross on its name. And, it has managed to top the Chennai film market for consecutive three weeks, with the collection from Chennai in the third week being around ₹ 17 crores.

Some stills from 2.0

Those who are saying that 2.0 is already the biggest Indian film, I have some facts for them. I accept it is true that it is the biggest 3D Indian film, but when it comes to be biggest in income, it is still behind four other films, two out of which are of Amir Khan. It is still behind Amir Khan’s Dangal which is on No. 1 (₹ 1957 Cr) and Secret Superstar which is on No. 4 (₹ 834 Cr), Salman Khan’s Bajrangi Bhaijan which is on No. 3 with ₹ 873 Cr and Prabhas’ Bahubali: The Conclusion with ₹ 1807 Cr. So, it has a lot of work to do to be the biggest hit of all time. But no one can say that it will be impossible. Because, 2.0 is gearing up for its big China release. According to its makers, the film will get around 56,000 screens in China, thus the income is expected to take a big leap after that.

Film is inching towards 800 Crore

Many of you don’t know that 2.0 had just run into controversy just before three days of its release. The cellular network operators have filed a complaint against the movie for promoting “obscurantist and anti-scientific attitudes against mobile phones, towers and mobile services”. According to Cellular Association of India, the movie was against “public interest,” and that it was “defamatory” of its members and violates their constitutional rights. The complaint was filed on 23rd November to the Central Board of Film Certification and the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting.

And coming to the second part of my headline, 2.0 has not crossed Bahubali: The Conclusion in any income means. It is ahead in the number of screens it has been given to release, which is 10,500 globally, where as Bahubali: The Conclusion had 9000 screens on its name.

Box-Office: Rohit Shetty’s Simmba witnesses good occupancy on the first day

Box-Office: Rohit Shetty’s Simmba witnesses good occupancy on the first day

Ranveer Singh-Sara Ali Khan starrer Simmba had an impressively great opening, courtesy the huge advance-bookings even before the official release date. The movie is an official remake of south action Telugu flick, Temper.

As per the reports of BoxofficeIndia.com, Simmba generated the ninth-best opening of 2018, taking about 35% occupancy, which is also slightly better than last week’s another mega-budgeted release, Shah Rukh Khan’s Zero.

Simmba also collected around Rs.8 crore in advance bookings, which is also this year’s sixth-best collection in terms of advance grossing.

And because Zero’s magic has already begun to fade unexpectedly early than previously thought, it’s certain now that Simmba will end this year on a high with its own box-office impact. It looks like it will end up being one of the most successful masala-action entertainers of Bollywood, after past flicks like Singham, Singham Returns, Dabangg, and Dabangg 2.

Ranveer Singh will also end the year on a high just like he started it, with a bang in Padmaavat, which was also a huge blockbuster in terms of box-office collections.

Well generally speaking, then this year was a disaster for big-budget and star-studded films like Race 3, Thugs of Hindostan, Kedarnath, and Zero, which failed to create an impact in the theaters. But Simmba seems to be an exception as far as the current reactions from audiences and many trade analysts are concerned. It will turn out to be a great profit-making flick for the Bollywood.

The film tells the story of a corrupt cop who only has one goal in life, of earning endless money and making his name. But due to a tragic incident, his life takes a turn for the good, transforming him into an honest police inspector and also a good human being.

The masala movie also stars actress Sara Ali Khan, Sonu Sood as the main antagonist, and also Ashutosh Rana. There’s also the cameo of Ajay Devgan in the film, as Singham.

Directed by Rohit Shetty and his team, Simmba is now running in theaters.

Zero Movie Box-Office: The big budget film earns around Rs.60 crore in its first weekend

Published

on

Zero Movie Box-Office: The big budget film earns around Rs.60 crore in its first weekend

Zero, directed by Anand L. Rai, and starring actor Shah Rukh Khan, Katrina Kaif, and Anushka Sharma, has made about Rs.59.07 crore in the opening weekend on the Indian box-office. The performance has been stable, if not very great, as of now. On Friday, the film earned about Rs.20.14 crore, but on Saturday it declined by about Rs.2 crore, taking in around Rs.18.22 crore. But on Sunday the collection was quite good, as it accumulated about Rs.20.71 crore.

Trade analyst Taran Adarsh also posted the box-office collections of Zero via his Twitter account, which you can see below.

The big-budgeted movie was also the most anticipated film of 2018’s end, but upon its release, the reactions were generally mixed to average and negative, as far as the critics are concerned. General audiences have also given mixed responses only.

This year itself has been hugely unlucky for the three big superstars of Bollywood namely, Salman Khan, Amir Khan, and Shah Rukh Khan, whose films have been poorly received at the box-office, as well as on the critical level too. ‘Zero’ was released in the country on around 4,380 screens (which is a huge number per the shows are concerned), but despite that, it hasn’t been received very well on the box-office registers.

The one main reason can be that the public now has become more intelligent in knowing that which movie is great when it comes to content and fresh storyline, and plot. Because each big-budgeted film of 2018 has been repeatedly the same as far as the story and plot are concerned, so the audiences have also ceased to be fooled by them consistently. Because these films just don’t have the much required great performances, good direction, and relevance either. Examples of these types of films, in 2018, include Race 3, Thugs of Hindostan, Kedarnath, and now Zero.

As compared to the ‘big’ movies of this year, the small-budgeted yet brilliant, content-driven films have in fact been successful, among the audiences and also with the critics too, like Andhadhun, Badhaai Ho, and Stree.

And this Friday, another big-budgeted, action flick is arriving in the cinemas, which is Rohit Shetty’s directorial Simmba, starring actor Ranveer Singh and actress Sara Ali Khan in the lead roles. So it looks obviously certain that ‘Zero’ will be facing very tough competition from Simmba, this Friday. Thus, it also looks unlikely that the Shah Rukh Khan starrer will continue to garner more money going through this week, till the end of the year.

Actress Dia Mirza criticizes PM Narendra Modi and Akshay Kumar for ‘no women’ in the Bollywood meet

Actress Dia Mirza criticizes PM Narendra Modi and Akshay Kumar for 'no women' in the Bollywood meet

Bollywood actress Dia Mirza has criticized PM Narendra Modi and actor Akshay Kumar over a Bollywood meeting, in which there were ‘no women’ included.

On Tuesday, December 18, the Prime Minister had a meeting with Bollywood actors and producers at Raj Bhawan in Mumbai. And in that meeting, the issues regarding the film industry were discussed.

But the meeting didn’t go down well with the public as the PM and actor Akshay Kumar were slammed for not inviting a single woman, whether it be an actress, director or producer, in the meeting.

But lately, the wrath got even bigger when actress Dia Mirza also took to Twitter, sharing her dissatisfaction towards the meeting and the PM.

Quoting actor Akshay Kumar’s tweet, she wrote, “This is wonderful! Is there a reason why there were no women in this room? @akshaykumar (sic).”

You can see the post below.

As per the reports of PTI, the people present in the meeting included director/producer Karan Johar, Ritesh Sidhwani, Rakesh Roshan, Ronnie Screwwala, CBFC chairman Prasoon Joshi, Siddharth Roy Kapoor (the president of Film Producers Guild), and also actors Akshay Kumar and Ajay Devgan. There were all men there.

PM Narendra Modi tweeted after the meeting and wrote that he had an ‘extensive and fruitful interaction’ with a delegation from the film and entertainment industry.

He also wrote that the delegation spoke about the strides being made by the film and entertainment industry, and gave valuable inputs relating to GST for their sector.

Twitter was full of hate towards PM Modi with people asking him why there was no woman invited for this important meeting.

PM was also criticized because of the fact that he has made ‘woman power’ a slogan for the country’s development also. But having no woman representative at all, and that too in a Bollywood meeting was seen as a big discrimination by the public on social media.

Rajinikanth-Akshay Kumar’s 2.0 earns record breaking Rs.120 crore in its advance booking only!

Rajinikanth-Akshay Kumar’s 2.0 earns record breaking Rs.120 crore in its advance booking only!

Director Shankar’s magnum opus 2.0 starring actors Rajinikanth and Akshay Kumar, is already a definite blockbuster at the box-office. The costliest ever film in India has made a record of earning Rs.120 crore in just its advance booking. That’s insanely high compared to any other movie in the past. It has also become the first ever Tamil film to cross the mark of 100 crore in advance booking.

While there were two contenders seen as box-office champs in Amir Khan-Amitabh Bachchan’s Thugs of Hindostan and Rajinikanth-Akshay Kumar’s 2.0, now there’s only one. Because everyone knows what just happened with Thugs of Hindostan, as it’s turned out to be the biggest ever disasters at the box-office, in many years! It was a big disappointment for not only fans but critics too.

However, people are expecting very high from 2Point0 movie as its predecessor, Robot (or Enthiran in Tamil) was also a mega-hit, back in 2010. That film starred Rajinikanth opposite actress Aishwarya Rai Bachchan.

Some rumors are even hinting that the upcoming sequel to Robot, may even break Baahubali 2: The Conclusion’s records also—well, that’s too early to say. But looking at the figures of its advance booking collection, then it may happen, only when the entire country falls for it as it did for Baahubali and then Baahubali 2 as well.

Ramesh Bala tweeted about 2.0’s record earnings even before its release next week in the country.

It will be interesting to see how 2.0 plays out till the time Shah Rukh Khan’s Zero comes out in late December. Zero has also attracted a lot of buzz while its trailer generated record views after being released on YouTube. Zero will also be the last big flick of 2018, and thus anticipations will be high too, especially from die-hard fans of Shah Rukh Khan. So, 2.0 will have a task of not only creating box-office magic but also set a new benchmark for future films too.

Distributed by Lyca Productions, AA Productions, and Dharma Productions, and also starring Amy Jackson, 2.0 will be releasing next week on November 29th, 2018.

Paradox: Thugs of Hindostan Breaks box-office record

Paradox: Thugs of Hindostan Breaks box-office record

Thugs of Hindostan is probably the ‘best contender’ for trolls and memes on social media this year, after Race 3, thanks to the insanely negative reviews it’s received after releasing on Thursday. But the ultimate paradox is that despite heavy criticism from audiences and critics alike, this Yash Raj Film has become the biggest grosser in a single and opening day of release itself!

Official reports have confirmed that the Amitabh Bachchan-Amir Khan starrer flick earned around Rs.52.25 crore on day 1 only, that is November 8th, 2018! Yes, you read that right. The movie also stars Fatima Sana Sheikh and Katrina Kaif.

But as it had to happen, the movie is getting a lot of attention from the social media, especially the Twitterati who have now started trolling the film even more (they are doing this since the trailer of Thugs of Hindostan released more than a month ago).

Whether it’s the visual effects, the songs, the story, the performances of the cast, or the direction, everything related to this movie is getting mocked and insulted, if we say in a more specific manner. And its not some made-up thing to project the film in a bad way, but actually the audiences have shunned the flick. And yes, they again called it a shameless copy of Pirates of the Caribbean also. Why? Because they have watched it now, so finding similarities became much simpler.

Before its release too, it was called a Pirates of the Caribbean copy, with social media comparing many scenes, characters and action sequences, in detail.

Some people after coming out of theater were asked about their reviews and feedback, and they literally called out to director of this movie, Vijay Krishna Acharya, to give their money back which they spent in buying the tickets for watching Thugs of Hindostan! And after all this, Twitter users also began to make fun of the film, while also expressing their anger for the filmmakers and the movie itself.

Twitter is now flooded with lots of memes about people’s reactions after watching Thugs of Hindostan. You won’t be able to contain your laugh, seriously. Scroll below to see for yourself.

Thugs of Hindostan becomes the new Race 3! Social Media Endlessly Mocks Trailer

Ever since the official trailer for Thugs of Hindostan released on YouTube on September 27th, 2018, there has been a flood of memes by many social media users, not only mocking the trailer in every way possible but also calling it a ‘copy-paste’ of Hollywood film franchise, Pirates of the Caribbean!

From the get-go, the film’s trailer, though getting praises from the Bollywood industry, is also getting a negative response, thanks to the huge similarities between the movie and Pirates of the Caribbean.

Especially, Amir Khan-who is called Mr. Perfectionist of Bollywood-is being trolled heavily due to his character’s near-similar looks with that of Johnny Depp’s Jack Sparrow in Pirates of the Caribbean films. Also, other members of the cast like Katrina Kaif and Fatima Sana Sheikh have also become the subject of viral memes. Some users trolled Katrina Kaif for having no dialogue, and just dancing throughout the duration of the trailer. Same goes Fatima Sana Sheikh’s character as well who also doesn’t speak a single word and is seen only performing action stunts.

In the film, there is Amitabh Bachchan (in the role of Khudabaksh Azaad), Amir Khan as Firangi Mallah, Fatima Sana Sheikh as Zafira and Katrina Kaif as Suraiyya. There is also Mohammed Zeeshan Ayyub.

Apart from the cast and scenes, the VFX in the trailer has come under fire too. As per the fans on social media, the special effects are appearing to be overly scattered and looking less real, considering the humongous budget of Thugs of Hindostan which is about Rs.210 crores!

See for yourself below how much love the film is getting from the trollers, meme-makers and most of the Twitter users combined, even before its release, which is still a month away. You will definitely try to resist your laugh, though it’s not guaranteed.

Thugs of Hindostan is directed by Vijay Krishna Acharya (Dhoom 3) and produced by Yash Raj Films. The film will be releasing on the eve of Diwali, on November 8th, 2018.

Movie Review: Batti Gul Meter Chalu starts low at Box-Office

Movie Review: Batti Gul Meter Chalu starts low at Box-Office

Directed by Shri Narayan Singh (Toilet Ek Prem Katha fame), and starring actor Shahid Kapoor, Shraddha Kapoor and Divyendu Sharma in lead roles, along with Yami Gautam, the recent flick Batti Gul Meter Chalu has started low at the Indian domestic box-office. The film released on Friday 22nd and managed to earn only Rs.6.76 crore, which is really below expectations.

Set in Uttarakhand and dealing with the issue of overcharged electricity bills, the social drama was also received in a mixed manner by critics too, which may have prevented many moviegoers from theaters and watch it.

Movie Review: Batti Gul Meter Chalu starts low at Box-Office With Mixed Reactions

The reactions have been mostly mixed to lukewarm. After Padmaavat, one of the biggest blockbusters of this year, this is Shahid Kapoor’s second film; while basking in the success of Stree, which was released last month, Shraddha Kapoor is back in a small town girl avatar.

Performances of the film have been good, but according to many, it’s the length of this film that bothers, at 2hours and 43minutes.

Batti Gul Meter Chalu has been made with a budget of around Rs.95 crore. Now, looking at the current opening on the first day itself, it seems critical that it will be able to even surpass its cost of production.

Nonetheless, it’s just the first week itself and the film may attract a larger audience in the next week. But that also seems uncertain, because of the tough competition not from the upcoming Bollywood movies, but Hollywood flicks too!

Sony/Marvel’s Venom, starring Tom Hardy is releasing next Friday in India and considering the fact that Indians are also superhero fans, it’s obvious to say that Venom too, will be able to lure many moviegoers.
