Despite the fact that Friday is a National Holiday, DUM MAARO DUM opened to dull houses at major centres of the country. Of course, the opening trends of DUM MAARO DUM were better than Abhishek Bachchan’s last release GAME, but that’s no compliment.
The occupancy at multiplexes was slightly better, especially at metros, but the average occupancy was in 30% to 35% range [although a few venues reported better occupancy], while single screens were between 10% – 15% – 20%. The average opening, thus, stands at 25% – 30%. Meanwhile, the paid previews on Thursday recorded dull figures at most venues and one of the reasons could be the number of shows that were held. DUM MAARO DUM had screenings from 6 pm onwards and as many as 5 to 6 shows were held at some venues. The business, therefore, got divided.
In view of the fact that it’s a National Holiday, the morning and noon shows of DUM MAARO DUM should’ve started on 50% – 60% note at least. The terrific promotions as well as no major opposition to contend with are two factors that go in its favor. But Punjabi film DHARTI, starring Jimmy Sheirgill [in North India] and Telugu film MR. PERFECT, starring Prabhas [in South India], besides the IPL matches in Kolkata and Mumbai, respectively are likely to prove tough opponents.
Let’s hope the evening and night shows of DUM MAARO DUM show a major jump. Fingers crossed!

TEEN THAY BHAI had a disastrous weekend. It collected approx. Rs. 2.30 cr nett in its opening weekend. Breakup [rough estimates]:- Fri 60 lacs, Sat 80 lacs, Sun 90 lacs. Below the mark!
THANK YOU meanwhile collected approx. Rs. 7.5 cr in its second weekend. Breakup:- Fri 1.75 cr, Sat 2.5 cr, Sun 3.25 cr. Total so far: approx. Rs. 37 cr nett. The dull response to ‘Teen Thay Bhai’ helped ‘Thank You’ marginally, but the overall figures are below the mark. While the single screens contributed to the revenue, the multiplexes remained dull.

Akshay’s release PATIALA HOUSE collected approx. Rs. 22.5 to Rs. 23 cr nett in Week 1. The business picked up over the weekend [although it was still below expectations], but didn’t show any upswing on weekdays. The break up is as follows: Fri 4.05 cr, Sat 5.05 cr, Sun 6.05 cr, Mon 2.75 cr, Tue 1.75 cr, Wed 1.5 cr, Thurs 1.35 cr. Till last year, Akshay starrers would fetch Rs. 35 cr + in Week 1, so the first week figure of PH seems really low.
The total cost of PATIALA HOUSE stands at Rs. 45 cr [includes Rs 9 cr incurred on P & A]. The producers have already recovered their investment by selling India theatrical rights [Rs. 23 cr], Overseas [Rs. 7 cr], Satellite [Rs. 15 cr] and Music + Home Video combined [Rs. 4.5 cr]. The onus falls on the distributors, who acquired the film at reasonable prices. The film has to sustain in its second weekend, so that the respective distributors can recover their investment.
Yeh Saali Zindagi had a decent second week of around 3.25 crore nett taking its two week total to 10.75 crore nett. BELOW AVERAGE

Last Friday’s release NO ONE KILLED JESSICA has done excellent business everywhere. Multiplexes of major centres have contributed the maximum. It collected approx. Rs. 20.70 cr nett in its opening week. The breakup:- Fri to Sun Rs 13.40 cr, Mon Rs 2.10 cr, Tue Rs 1.9 cr, Wed Rs 1.7 cr, Thu 1.6 cr. Thus, the flick will ensure healthy profits to UTV.
BAND BAAJA BAARAAT added another 1.75 crore nett in week five which is similar to its third week collection. The film has grossed 21.50 crore nett in five weeks.
Faruk Kabir is livid about signing a contract worth Rs 2.5 crore with Percept Pictures and Ravi Walia for promoting Allah Ke Banday
Sonal Chawla (MUMBAI MIRROR; November 29, 2010)
His directorial debut received a mixed response, but director Faruk Kabir is in no mood to forgive Percept Picture Company for their attitude towards his film.
Percept Picture, he alleges, did not honour the contract Kabir had signed with them for promoting Allah Ke Banday and for this, they had taken a sum of Rs 2.5 crore. Kabir said, “I am very upset, as my promos were not on air, which in turn gave zero awareness to the audience about my film. Why that happened I don’t know. There was a deal with producer Ravi Walia and Percept about promotions, which disappeared after the first half of promotional work was done.”A still from Allah Ke Banday
However, Sanjay Ahire, Chief Operating Officer at Percept, said, “We were involved in the distributor capacity and had to spend some amount in marketing. From our side, we did our bit of spending 1.75 crore in marketing and 75 lakh on distribution. The producer Ravi Walia had to pay money for the release of this film.
He had huge chunks to pay to the lab that he did not. We did the initial marketing and now that the film hasn’t opened to its expectations, all these accusations have surfaced.”
When contacted, Ravi Walia said, “We had started promotions a long time ago but the movie kept getting delayed. Post More >
