Bollywood box-office report of the week

By Abid, Glamsham Editorial

After the EK THA TIGER tsunami (still on in many circuits!), this Friday will see the release of Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Boman-Farah starrer, SHIRIN FARHAD KI TOH NIKAL PADI. While ETT will still be quite strong in its second weekend, and SHIRIN FARHAD KI TOH NIKAL PADI will not exactly take a big start, but still, the good promotion will ensure a decent run for the film, more so at the high end multiplexes.

Coming to Yash Raj Films EK THA TIGER, almost everything has been said and discussed about the record breaking run of the film. And it continues! After a mammoth first day, in excess of 31 crores, the film saw a big fall on Thursday followed by a big surge in collections (Sunday onwards), crossing the 100 crore mark in 5-6 days! In fact, the film will end the 9-day run netting more than the entire run of Salman Khan's two blockbusters, DABANGG and BODYGUARD. In the overseas too EK THA TIGER has rocked the box-office grossing and#163;543,000 from UK and $1,484,500 from the US during the 5-day weekend (15-19 August).

After a decent weekend, Anurag Kashyap's GANGS OF WASSEYPUR II saw a big fall during the weekdays collecting 2 crore from Bombay (collections from other cinemas unreceived), 35 lakhs from Ahmedabad, 8 lakhs from Surat, 7.65 lakhs from Baroda, 6 lakhs from Rajkot, 25 lakhs from Pune, 7 lakhs from Nasik, 3 lakhs from Goa, 1.50 lakhs from Belgaum, 2.15 crore from Delhi city, 33 lakhs from Noida, 22.25 lakhs from Ghaziabad, 13 lakhs from Kanpur, 30 lakhs from Lucknow, 3.65 lakhs from Agra, 2.55 lakhs from Allahabad, 45 lakhs from Gurgaon, 6 lakhs from Faridabad, 1 lakh from Kurukshetra, 2.60 lakhs from Panipat, 6.35 lakhs from Chandigarh, 4.50 lakhs from Jalandhar, 30 lakhs from Calcutta, 2.60 lakhs from Siliguri, 2 lakhs from Guwahati, 15 lakhs from Nagpur, 11.15 lakhs from Raipur, 8.15 lakhs from Indore, 3 lakhs from Gwalior (collections from 3 cinemas unreceived), 7.65 lakhs from Bhopal (collections from 3 cinemas unreceived), 20 lakhs from Jaipur (collections from 5 cinemas unreceived), 2.60 lakhs from Ajmer, 1 lakh from Bikaner, 3.65 lakhs from Kota, 2.15 lakhs from Udaipur, 25 lakhs from Hyderabad, 2 lakhs from Aurangabad, 35 lakhs from Bangalore, 1.65 lakhs from Visakhapatnam , 2.50 lakhs from Madras (collections from other cinemas unreceived) and 1 lakh from Kochi. Netting nearly 19 crore during the opening week GANGS OF WASSEYPUR II will end up as an average fare and would have done much better, had it not met a premature death due to EK THA TIGER, Independence Day onwards.

The other two releases of the week, OVERTIME and SECOND MARRIGE DOT COM, are washouts!

Meanwhile Pooja Bhatt's JISM 2 crashed badly in the second week as it collected 50 lakhs from Bombay (collections from other cinemas unreceived), 18.65 lakhs from Ahmedabad, 11.55 lakhs from Surat, 5 lakhs from Baroda, 11 lakhs from Rajkot, 10.75 lakhs from Pune, 3 lakhs from Nasik, 3 lakhs from Goa, 1.10 lakhs from Belgaum, 50 lakhs from Delhi city, 7.50 lakhs from Noida, 7 lakhs from Ghaziabad, 6.15 lakhs from Kanpur, 9.75 lakhs from Lucknow, 4 lakhs from Agra, 6.65 lakhs from Gurgaon, 1.50 lakhs from Faridabad, 1 lakh from Kurukshetra, 3.75 lakhs from Chandigarh, 4 lakhs from Jalandhar, 1 lakh from Amritsar, 1 lakh from Bhatinda, 16 lakhs from Calcutta, 2.50 lakhs from Siliguri, 1.20 lakhs from Guwahati, 7 lakhs from Nagpur, 4 lakhs from Raipur, 2.50 lakhs from Indore (collections from 4 cinemas unreceived), 4 lakhs from Bhopal, 7.50 lakhs from Jaipur (collections from 4 cinemas unreceived), 1 lakh from Ajmer, 1.75 lakhs from Kota, 3.50 lakhs from Hyderabad, 1.50 lakhs from Aurangabad, 5 lakhs from Bangalore and 1 lakh from Madras (collections from other cinemas unreceived). Adding another 4.50 crore. JISM 2 has netted 32 crores in two weeks from India. While the producers of the Sunny Leone starrer have made a good profit, the all-India distributor (Ponty Chaddha) will also make profits, but at the cost of various territorial distributors who stand to lose. In the Overseas JISM 2 has been rejected.

Concluding with Balaji Telefilms' Riteish Tusshar starrer, KYAA SUPER KOOL HAIN HUM, during the week the film collected 20 lakhs from Bombay (collections from other cinemas unreceived), 18.35 lakhs from Ahmedabad, 4.15 lakhs from Surat, 2.20 lakhs from Pune, 1.25 lakhs from Nasik, 1 lakh from Goa, 20 lakhs from Delhi city, 3.50 lakhs from Noida, 3.25 lakhs from Ghaziabad, 2.15 lakhs from Kanpur, 2.65 lakhs from Lucknow, 1.10 lakhs from Agra, 2.15 lakhs from Gurgaon, 1.55 lakhs from Chandigarh, 1.25 lakhs from Jalandhar, 2.50 lakhs from Calcutta, 3 lakhs from Nagpur, 2.65 lakhs from Raipur, 2.20 lakhs from Indore (collections from 4 cinemas unreceived), 2 lakhs from Bhopal, 7.50 lakhs from Jaipur (collections from 2 cinemas unreceived), 1 lakh from Ajmer, l.25 lakhs from Kota, 1.25 lakhs from Hyderabad and 1 lakh from Bangalore. Adding another 2.50 crores, KYAA SUPER KOOL HAIN HUM has netted 45.50 crores in three weeks from India and is a hit.

The film though has not done well in the Overseas.
