Shakeela could not do anything substantial at the box-office in the first week. It started extremely slow and did not show improvement as the week progressed.
Tute Kanch bombed miserably in the first week wherever it was released.
WW84, in its original and Hindi and other dubbed versions, fared the best among the post-lockdown releases. It netted around Rs. 0.80 crore in paid previews on Wednesday. The total for Thursday was Rs. 1.40 crore. Collections picked up by 50% on Friday so that the day ended at Rs. 2.10 crore. Saturday and Sunday saw the film closing at Rs. 1.70 crore and Rs. 1.75 crore respectively. In this way, the first weekend closed at Rs. 7.75 crore. Collections on the weekdays were as follows: Monday – Rs. 0.75 crore, Tuesday – Rs. 0.60 crore, Wednesday – Rs. 0.55 crore, Thursday – Rs. 0.50 crore. With a weekdays’ total of Rs. 2.40 crore, the first week’s grand total went up to Rs. 10.15 crore. Warner Bros.’ earlier cinema release, Tenet, had netted Rs. 6.75 crore in the first week, and another Rs. 1.80 crore in 2nd week. As compared to Rs. 8.55 crore of Tenet in the first 2 weeks, WW84 netted Rs. 10.15 crore in the first week.
Indoo Ki Jawani fared poorly in the first week. It took a dismal start and also failed to improve as the week progressed. The first week ended at less than even Rs. 1.5 crore! Yes, the entire week could not even amass a crore-and-a-half from all-India.
Tenet (English and Hindi dubbed) netted around Rs. 1.80 crore in 2nd week. Collections maintained mainly in the IMAX screens and the premium multiplexes of the big cities. Adding the first week’s net of Rs. 6.75 crore, the two-week total went up to Rs. 8.55 crore.
Tenet (English and Hindi dubbed) did well in the first week in the IMAX screens and the high-end multiplexes of the big cities. Its performance was dull, as expected, in most single-screen cinemas and lesser multiplexes as also in the smaller cities and towns. The original and all dubbed versions together collected Rs. 1.4 crore on the first day. Collections increased a bit on day 2 which closed at Rs. 1.5 crore. Sunday recorded a figure of Rs. 1.6 crore. After a first weekend total of Rs. 4.5 crore, the film managed to net Rs. 2.25 crore in the weekdays. Its total of Rs. 6.75 crore is quite alright, considering that cinemas are running at 50% capacities, and people are still not coming to the cinemas in large numbers for fear of contracting the coronavirus.
Suraj Pe Mangal Bhari found appreciation but since people have still not started visiting cinemas in large numbers, it did not manage to garner even average collections, leave alone impressive collections in the first week. The public is still not sure about the safety and security of enclosed spaces like cinema halls and is, therefore, not coming to the cinemas in substantial numbers. This was the main reason why a comedy entertainer like Suraj Pe Mangal Bhari could not deliver in monetary terms despite delivering in terms of content. The film netted Rs. 65 lakh on the first day (Sunday, New Year holiday), Rs. 51 lakh on day 2, Rs. 36 lakh on the third day, Rs. 27 lakh on the fourth day, and Rs. 15 lakh on day 5. The first week’s (5 days) total, therefore, was only Rs. 1.94 crore.
Since cinemas were ordered to be shut down from different dates in different states, collections are available only for the first three days of the week….. Collections of all films are terribly adversely affected due to the coronavirus scare.
Angrezi Medium did not find much appreciation. It netted Rs. 4 crore on the first day. Collections plummeted to Rs. 2.85 crore on Saturday as more states ordered closure of cinemas from Saturday. Collections declined to Rs. 2.25 crore on Sunday because more and more cinemas downed shutters with each passing day. The first weekend, therefore, closed at Rs. 9.10 crore.
Bloodshot (dubbed) and the original English version of the same name did very ordinary in 1st week.
Baaghi 3 netted Rs. 2.10 crore on the first day of the second weekend. Collections went down to Rs. 1.70 crore on Saturday, and to Rs. 1.60 crore on Sunday. The total for the second weekend was, therefore, Rs. 5.40 crore. Grand total for 10 days: Rs. 92.90 crore.
Thappad could collect only Rs. 0.41 crore in the third weekend, taking its total for 17 days to Rs. 29.56 crore.
Vijeta (Marathi) could not find appreciation in the first week in Bombay, Thane district and other centres of Maharashtra.
AB Aani CD (Marathi) did not do well in the first week in Bombay, Thane district and the rest of Maharashtra.
Ibhrat (Marathi) faced rejection in 1st week in Bombay, Thane district and other stations of Maharashtra.
Despite mixed reports, Baaghi 3 has done very well in the first week. The Covid-19 scare adversely affected collections by 3-5% but with cinemas in Delhi, Bombay and many other parts of the country shutting down from yesterday/today (13th/14th March), collections all over will, of course, take a hit. In its first week, the film had to also contend with the dull examination days and the equally dull pre-Holi days (6th to 9th March). The film may not have taken a flying start in the morning shows on the first day but collections picked up as the day progressed, and Friday ultimately closed at a handsome Rs. 17 crore. Collections dropped by a little less than 10% on Saturday, as often happens in the case of action films which open well. After collecting Rs. 15.50 crore on Saturday, collections increased to Rs. 20 crore on Sunday. The first weekend, therefore, closed at Rs. 52.50 crore. Collection on Monday was Rs. 9 crore but Tuesday closed at a fantastic Rs. 13.50 crore owing to Holi holiday. Collections on Wednesday and Thursday were Rs. 7.50 crore and Rs. 5 crore respectively. Hence the total for the weekdays was Rs. 35 crore. In this way, the first week closed at Rs. 87.50 crore. The film would’ve easily netted Rs. 120 crore-plus in its lifetime but with the dynamics changing due to cinemas in different parts of India shutting down because of the coronavirus fear, the business henceforth will be adversely affected.
Kaamyaab could not manage to do much in the first week as it found patronage mainly from the elite audience only.
Thappad dropped around 60% in 2nd week. The second weekend started with a take of Rs. 0.85 crore. Collections on Saturday almost doubled to Rs. 1.65 crore. The collection of Rs. 2.15 crore on Sunday took the second weekend’s total to Rs. 4.65 crore. Collections on the weekdays were as follows: Monday – Rs. 1.05 crore, Tuesday – Rs. 1.35 crore (Holi), Wednesday – Rs. 0.65 crore, Thursday – Rs. 0.50 crore. By netting Rs. 3.55 crore in the weekdays, the film took its total for the second week to Rs. 8.20 crore. Grand total for 2 weeks: Rs. 29.15 crore.
Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan managed to net Rs. 2.10 crore in the third weekend, and Rs. 1.70 crore in the weekdays so that its total for 3rd week was Rs. 3.80 crore. Grand total for 3 weeks: Rs. 58.50 crore.
Bhoot Part One – The Haunted Ship collected only Rs. 0.90 crore in the third weekend, and Rs. 0.70 crore in the weekdays. By adding just Rs. 1.60 crore to its kitty in the third week, it took its grand total for 3 weeks to Rs. 32.48 crore.
