SON OF SARDAAR and JAB TAK HAI JAAN
The much awaited clash between Ajay Devgn’s SON OF SARDAAR and Shah Rukh Khan’s JAB TAK HAI JAAN went the expected and predicted way! Both the films embarked on a good start with SON OF SARDAAR leading in Bihar, Rajasthan, CP Berar and East Punjab and JAB TAK HAI JAAN dominating Mumbai circuit, Delhi–UP, Mysore, West Bengal, Hyderabad–Nizam and TNK. After three days, SON OF SARDAAR has netted 35-36 crore and JAB TAK HAI JAAN 47-48 crore from India. What must be kept in mind is the fact SOS has a total cost of 80-85 crore (all inclusive) and JTHJ 60 crore (all inclusive, sans SRK’s fee), and so both the films have to last more than the extended 6-day weekend, to be declared a hit. In the overseas JAB TAK HAI JAAN is the clear winner, having grossed $ 3.50m in just three days (having released in some markets on the third day!), and is expected to reset many old records!
Moving on Anurag Kashyap’s LUV SHUV TEY CHICKEN KHURANA could not make a mark despite good critical acclaim and collected 70 lakhs from Bombay (collections from other cinemas unreceived), 8.50 lakhs from Ahmedabad, 3.65 lakhs from Surat, 3.25 lakhs from Baroda (collections from 2 cinemas unreceived), 13 lakhs from Pune, 2 lakhs from Nasik, 1.10 crore from Delhi city, 15 lakhs from Noida, 8.75 lakhs from Ghaziabad, 2.50 lakhs from Kanpur, 6 lakhs from Lucknow, 1.25 lakhs from Agra, 26 lakhs from Gurgaon, 2.55 lakhs from Faridabad, 1.50 lakhs from Panipat, 5.65 lakhs from Chandigarh, 8.15 lakhs from Jalandhar, 1.50 lakhs from Amritsar, 1 lakh from Ludhiana, 1 lakh from Bhatinda, 1.50 lakhs from Ambala, 15 lakhs from Calcutta, 1.15 lakhs from Siliguri, 3.65 lakhs from Nagpur, 1.50 lakhs from Jabalpur, 3 lakhs from Raipur, 3.55 lakhs from Indore, 1 lakh from Gwalior, 2 lakhs from Bhopal, 6 lakhs from Jaipur (collections from 3 cinemas unreceived), 2 lakhs from Kota, 10 lakhs from Hyderabad, 3.50 lakhs from Aurangabad, 15 lakhs from Bangalore, 1 lakh from Visakhapatnam and 1.15 lakhs from Madras. Netting 7 crore during the opening week LUV SHUV TEY CHICKEN KHURANA can at best be termed as a below average fare.

Netting 19 crore during the opening week, the Aftab-Tia starrer is a hit, taking into account the impressive second weekend!
The other two releases of the week, ATA PATA LAPATA and LE GAYA SADDAM, are trade debacles.
Meanwhile all the three older releases, CHAKRAVYUH, RUSH and AJAB GAZABB LOVE, saw minimal collections in the second week and are big failures. Just for stats, it was Prakash Jha’s CHAKRAVYUH which fared the best, comparatively.
In the meantime Karan Johar’s STUDENT OF THE YEAR is still managing to earn for the makers as it collected 65 lakhs from Bombay (collections from other cinemas unreceived), 11 lakhs from Ahmedabad, 6 lakhs from Surat, 4.50 lakhs from Baroda (collections from 4 cinemas unreceived), 3 lakhs from Rajkot, 10 lakhs from Pune, 3.20 lakhs from Nasik, 1.50 lakhs from Belgaum, 40.65 lakhs from Delhi city, 4.55 lakhs from Noida, 3 lakhs from Ghaziabad, 4 lakhs from Kanpur, 7 lakhs from Lucknow, 3 lakhs from Agra, 3.50 lakhs from Gurgaon, 1 lakh from Panipat, 3 lakhs from Chandigarh, 4 lakhs from Jalandhar, 20 lakhs from Calcutta, 2.25 lakhs from Siliguri, 7.65 lakhs from Nagpur, 2.50 lakhs from Jabalpur, 4.55 lakhs from Raipur, 7.25 lakhs from Indore, 1.25 lakhs from Gwalior (collections from 2 cinemas unreceived), 4.20 lakhs from Bhopal, 23 lakhs from Jaipur, 1.50 lakhs from Ajmer, 2 lakhs from Kota, 20 lakhs from Hyderabad, 20 lakhs from Bangalore, 2 lakhs from Visakhapatnam and 1.50 lakhs from Vijayawada. Adding another 4.50 crore, STUDENT OF THE YEAR has netted 64 crore in three weeks from India, and is a hit. The film has also done well in the overseas (better in US) grossing £321,200 in UK and $ 670,000 from the US till the fourth weekend (9-11 November).
