Bollywood Box Office Report Of The Week: 22 Jjuly 2019

It?s an almost open week as there are no prominent new Hindi films releasing. In fact the prominent release of the week is Hollywood?s animated The Angry Birds Movie 2 (dubbed) which too will find limited patronage as the audience will prefer the Independence Day releases.

The ?I Day (Rakshabandhan as well) clash between Mission Mangal and Batla House turned out to be a one sided affair, with the Akshay Kumar starrer dominating John Abraham?s film comprehensively.

In fact, the opening day (29 crore) and weekend (3-day and extended) are the best ever for an Akshay Kumar starrer.

At the end of 4-days Mission Mangal has netted 97 crore and is all set to be at least a super hit, given the very reasonable production cost (below 35 crore)! Mission Mangal has also impressed in the overseas grossing $3.50m with ?220,000 from UK and $1,525,000 ?from the Us during the opening week(16-18 August).

Bollywood Box Office Report Of The Week: 16 August 2019

The much touted Independence Day (Rakshabandhan as well) clash between Mission Mangal and Batla House turned out to be a tame affair, with the Akshay Kumar starrer dominating John Abraham?s film comprehensively.

In fact, the opening day numbers will be the best ever for an Akshay Kumar starrer, as we await the final numbers. Having said that, Batla House has garnered immense critical acclaim and the outcome will not be as one sided as the opening day indicates and things will become clear once the festivities end.

Checking out last week?s premier release, ?Siddharth-Parineeti?s Jabariya Jodi and ?Seven Hillss Cine Creations Productions? Chicken Curry Law, after an ordinary start for JJ and a poor opening for Ccl, things went from bad to worse and both the films have failed to entice the audience.

Bollywood Box Office Report Of The Week: 9th Aug 2019

The premier release of the week is Siddharth-Parineeti?s Jabariya Jodi and should dominate the proceedings, thanks to some crisp teasers and good promotion. The other new releases include Seven Hillss Cine Creations Productions? Chicken Curry Law as well as a couple of smaller projects, which will have to play second fiddle to Jabariya Jodi.

Checking out last week?s ?T-Series venture Sonakshi Sinha?s Khandaani Shafakhana, the film could not make mark despite being an open release, netting just 3 crore during the inaugural weekend. In fact the winner was expectedly Hollywood?s Fast and Furious : Hobbs and Shaw (dubbed) which netted almost 38 crore during the opening weekend, though it fell short of expectations, coming off a very successful brand.

Fast but not so Furious, Shafakhana is slow, Judgementall dominates Arjun!

The prominent new domestic release of the week, T-Series? Sonakshi Sinha?s Khandaani Shafakhana, could not quite make a mark at the box-office with an occupancy of around 10 percent. In fact expectedly it was Hollywood?s Fast and Furious : Hobbs and Shaw (dubbed) which dominated the show with an occupancy of around 35 percent, but a much better performance was expected as F and F is a very popular franchise. It is thus obvious that Hollywood will comprehensively dominate Bollywood yet again, as we await the final outcome.

Meanwhile the two major releases of last week, Balaji Motion Pictures? Kangana Ranaut-Rajkummar Rao starrer ?Judgementall Hai Kya and ?T-Series? Diljit Dosanjh-Kriti Sanon spoof Arjun Patiala, did not find much favour from the audience.
