The major releases of this Friday are Prabhu Dheva’s Shahid Kapoor-Sonakshi Sinha starrer R…RAJKUMAR and Farooque Shaikh’s CLUB 60. As far as the outcome is concerned, it is obvious that the front runner will be R…RAJKUMAR with CLUB 60 getting select patronage (due to almost zero promotions). However with a dull phase at the box office, one can only wish luck to the industry, more so to the two new releases.
Last week’s major release, Tigmanshu Dhulia’s Saif Ali Khan and Sonakshi Sinha starrer, BULLETT RAJA, managed a decent show in the hinterland especially at the single screens but the regional flavor (Uttar Pradesh) took its toll in circuits like Mumbai and South as is the norm. After a decent first day (Friday), the film did see an improvement in collections over the next two days of the weekend, but a clear upsurge in numbers was missing. BULLETT RAJA has not been appreciated in the overseas as it did not have the usual ingredients that are favoured by the expatriates particularly in US and UK. The film has grossed £82,500 from UK and $176,000 from the US during the opening weekend (29 November – December 1).
As always macho man Sunny Deol’s superlative performance worked for the Anil Sharma directed SINGH SAAB THE GREAT in the Hindi belt. Unfortunately the same cannot be said about the multiplexes (from where the maximum revenues are generated), as the preferences of the actual cinema going audience has changed from the days of GADAR. During the week, SINGH SAAB THE GREAT collected 1.25 crore from Bombay, 45 lakhs from Ahmedabad, 8.15 lakhs from Surat, 4.25 lakhs from Baroda (collections from 7 cinemas unreceived), 4.50 lakhs from Rajkot, 20 lakhs from Pune, 5 lakhs from Nasik, 1.75 crore from Delhi city, 31 lakhs from Ghaziabad, 15 lakhs from Kanpur, 21 lakhs from Lucknow, 4.50 lakhs from Agra, 7 lakhs from Allahabad, 4 lakhs from Aligarh, 20 lakhs from Gurgaon, 5.50 lakhs from Faridabad, 5.20 lakhs from Panipat, 21.55 lakhs from Chandigarh, 15 lakhs from Jalandhar, 14 lakhs from Amritsar, 13.75 lakhs from Ludhiana, 5.50 lakhs from Bhatinda, 2.50 lakhs from Ambala, 4 lakhs from Jammu, 10 lakhs from Calcutta, 1.50 lakhs from Siliguri, 1.75 lakhs from Dhanbad, 1 lakh from Ranchi, 1.15 lakhs from Bhubhaneshwar, 15 lakhs from Nagpur, 8.50 lakhs from Jabalpur, 7.50 lakhs from Raipur, 35 lakhs from Indore (collections from 2 cinemas unreceived), 3.15 lakhs from Gwalior (collections from 4 cinemas unreceived), 20 lakhs from Bhopal (collections from 2 cinemas unreceived), 65 lakhs from Jaipur, 6.50 lakhs from Ajmer, 3.50 lakhs from Bikaner, 12 lakhs from Kota, 5.15 lakhs from Udaipur, 30 lakhs from Hyderabad, 4 lakhs from Aurangabad and 10 lakhs from Bangalore.
