Shattered Dreams of Aladin – Monday Update

London Dreams holds steady on Monday with 4 Crore Nett. Evening shows were below expectations and Punjab/UP/Delhi affected badly. Now London dreams stands at approx. 19.25 Crore in Four days. First week should finish under 25 Crore.

Aladin remains on lower end with 5.5 Crore in Four days. Disaster.

  1. Well, the lower collection seems to be as a result of India VS Australia … anyways LD is an awesome movie … deserves to be a blockbuster 🙂

    Yakuza, what are the total collections of Wanted?

  2. Its very unfortunate. I expected atleast 6 CRORES yesterday. Match costed 2 CRORES to LD 😦 Hopefully it improves and sustains like ATB, otherwise it should settle Average to Above average I guess.

    • Yeah .. LD collections are letdown on Monday .. I was expecting 5 Crore looking at morning shows response.

  3. Is wanted still in top 5 this week. Considering MAMK is out, Blue is also near exit if not out and Aladin disaster

  4. @yakuja-can u tell about how is the trending of LD today…wat numbers u expect today??????plz answer…..

  5. How is LD faring at overseas???If it is doing well can it be compared with the biggies???

  6. YAKUJA,
    i think LD k producers and director ko LD k promos main public revie dikhana chahiye just like as showing by all the best promos……….
    aur LD KI AUR PUBLICITY KARNI CHAHIYE BY MEDIA TO YE COMING DAYS MAIN ACHCHI CHALEGI…….

  7. YAKUJA,
    PUBLIC REVIEWS VERY GOOD HAIN ,
    THTS Y PROMOS K SAATH DIKHANA CHAHIYE JAISE ALL THE BEST MAIN DIKHATEY HAIN

  8. Going by box office updates, LD should fare as above average. Could have been hit if there were no competion in 2nd week.

  9. It is a BIG Budget Film. Costing around 50 Crores. It will be difficult for it to Recover money. Its life would be upto 35 crores. It will be a Flop unfortunately looking at the trends.

    Personally i felt movie is One of the Best

  10. Mr Paracha you always said negative about LD. LD budget is around 45-47.
    please Dont say negative .

  11. ld monday ko 6 crore tak ja sakti thi par ind aus ke match aisa hone nai diya ,,,its okkk tuesday ko acha bussiness kare gi me sure

  12. guyz dont worry. LD could ort maybe should trend well. da Mon collections were hampered by da India-Aus match.
    lets just wait and see wat happens. WANTED ALSO HAD A AVERAGE START DEN IT JUST SHOT UP AND UP.

  13. ive just checked Boxofficeindia.com.
    @ Yakuza, Masterpraz and Topaz or any1 else.
    can u plz tell me da correct figures of LD in India and overseas.
    i fully expect da film to earn minimum of 15 crores in its total run overseas. Da film should rock in Engalnd and Pakistan mainly.
    da reason i say dat coz people r likein it here in England and da WANTED collections in Pakistan should have a bearing on LD.

    from completely a neautral point of view, IF dis film does fail den its sad to know dat good films dont get wat dey deserve.

  14. anyone knw abt tdy collections…..?

    • WELL FOLKS THE WRITING IS ON THE WALL SALMAN KHAN IS FINISHED AT THE BOX OFFICE
      Reasons:

      1. When things were on his side he took things too lightly?now when he is finally acting nobody wants to see him !!! Now that is irony…..
      2. When he gives interview though he tries to be funny he is big turn off… because of his attitude towards other stars and his body language..he acts as if he is a king…and all are there waiting for him to listen….
      4. His tendency to do work only with his chamchas..who must be boosting his egoo round the clock (let’ face it every star has one). GET RID OF SAJID WAJID…when was the last time SALMAN HAD a popular song which was sung across entire audience on the chart??? I can’t remember since PARTNER AND SALAME ISQQ.. AND ALSO his brother …they want to produce let them produce..I don’t understand why the HELL THEY WANT to act?…Look at VEER and Dabang..both Idiots are there..they want money and free fame..enough is enough…

      3. His personal life also has a bearing on his movies if u want to believe it or not..An actress he is dating/or not milks the fact every time her movie is about to release with her steamy affairs with co star……

      NOTHING IS LOST..good acting will win him back his audience and his dues..though to be fair enough age is not on his side…..but he needs to get his house in order..

  15. well Disapper. as a Salman fan i agree wid a few points u have made. if dis film doesnt do too well den i really dont know wat to say. His popularity is still immense. WANTED

  16. WANTED tells us dat. his show DKD haz done well for 2 seasons. BUT i agree dat SAJID WAJID r good but Salman should experiment more wid oder music directors. am not Pritam biggest fan but I want him to do Salman movie. (i know contradictory). IMO i want HR to do hiz music again. dem 2 have given some chartbusters.

    BUT to say Salman is finished at da box office is very hasty. LETS JUST WAIT AND SEE.

    an actor/superstar who haz been dere for 20 years cant just fizzle out dat quick.

  17. PLUS, u r 100% Disapper and i know a lot ov people think dis dat he should stop actin wid his bros. ENOUGH IZ ENOUGH NOW.
    am sure VEER will work for many reasons which i will share wen da time iz rite. DABBANG has an interesting story so hopeful wid dat 1 azwell.

    • SALMAN—THE STAR GONE WRONG

      Well he should also stop DKD..if he wants to be back at the box-office..it kills his enigma….

      I will watch Veer ..i like his antics on screen..but alas it will fail..for the reason he has lost his star power…and definately if it comes in Jan and Feb….SRK and Mr. Roshan has no release for nearly 2yrs..what do u expect even if their movie is weak which will not be it will run for weeks…

      No producer fears his movie any more ..even small time look to make a killing of the goliath….by having 2 movies in a year 6 months apart and making no appearance in news..also his love affairs and jail scenes not making news will make sure a big opening..take that in writing..

      London dreams his acting was fantasitc..even that seems an understatement..but his looks ..he looked tired..even Ajay was looking fresh.now that is not a good standard to compare for star who is known for his looks.clearly reflects guy has serious health problem…maybe of lack of sleep which he accepts in interviews..need to get that checked else…he is going to crash land….

  18. Somewhere i am disappointed why Salman is doing London dreams type of movies. He should do wanted type of raw roles.

    • Well there was time when i hated Salman of doing Heroine oriented or family oriented stuff in 90’s just like Dharamendra in 60’s. He had great potential to do action roles (See Karan Arjun) just like Amitabh in his 70’s and 80’s (though i am criminally putting him in same shoes as Amitabh, but let me be liberal here) but he almost wasted his time doing all those crappy stuff(i don’t bother if they were hits .. HAHK, Biwi no 1, HSSH, Bandhan etc can be done by any one, nothing special for Salman to do here). Through out 90’s .. its only two times Salman did roles i wanted him to do .. Veergati and Karan Arjun. But for rest of decade he just wasted his talent. In this decade i was very excited about Garv .. but that movie itself was average stuff. Still i was happy that atleast Salman attempted something worth. But my thrust quench finally with Wanted .. right after 14 years of Karan Arjun. This is what me(And i am sure every one) wanted him to do .. raw action. But now this MAMK and LD again irking me .. his next step should be Deewar type of serious solid action performance oriented movie.

      I have started liking Salman again (liked him always but his nonsense family and comedy stuff in 90’s just irritated me because i always knew where his potential lies) .. just hope he will not start doing such craps again.Any day i would prefer him doing “Hit” Wanted rather than “ATBB” Madhuri dominated HAHK or HSSH.

  19. Gita!!!
    Get a life all the business so far is from Salman fans..who still have gone for a movie even when three have released in a span of 6 weeks…
    Vipul Shah has let down the Khan badly..he gave his his best but the director wanted to experiment!!! since Akshay was not there what is there to loose..very poor direction..and he must accept that..had the script been sharp it would have been an average gross!!!…
    First half minus the Khan antics is a drag….

    Ajay comes to life in the second half..first half he is confused on how to play his role ..and he is not comfortable on stage ..it comes across clearly….

  20. disapper has made some valid points.. Its really sad to see salman khan who was once regarded as 1 of the biggest crowdpuller to thetres along with srk n aamir has started to lose his hold at the box office. He still enjoys iconic status n has enormous fan follwing but its really a pitty to see his films not taking good opening at the box office. I wish he really turns the table with ld… (all is not lost yet) it can still do good business if it can hold a steady run at the box office for 2 weeks(tough ask but not impossible). It ‘ll be a shame if salman’s best performance till date (according to most critics) doesn’t get its true recognition at the box office.

  21. Disapper!!!!!
    I Think u didn’t Like Salman.
    Salman is a Biggest Star in india, All we know.

  22. salman khan is a star and will be a star. MAMK did not work because it has salman khan as a special appearance just for 11 minute. Wanted is still doing great. London dreams buisness is also going great. So hit movies are the proof of stardom.

  23. IM A SALMAN FAN LIKE U ALL,BUT I THINK ONLY FANS CANT MAKE A MOVIE HIT.AMIR KHAN DOESNOT HAVE HUGE FAN FOLLOWING BUT HE RULES BOX OFFICE,BECAUSE POPLE THINK HE ACTS ONLY IN GOOD MOVIES,ND DAT PEOPLE DONT THINK ABT SALMAN DATS Y ONLY WE FANS CONTRIBUTE TO HIS OPENINGS.I THINK HES BECOMINGSERIOUS NOW THANKS 2 HIS FIGHT WID SRK,WHICH WILL TAKE D BEST OF HIM IN RDER 2 BEAT SRK.ND FINALLY SALMAN WILL CLEAR D PEOPLES MISCONCEPTIONS ND ROCK IN D FUTURE.COZ HES D MOST TALENTED ACTOR AS SAID BY SANJAY BHANSALI.HE WILL RULE D BOLLYWOOD

  24. Every year a lot of movies released some are hit mostly are flop due to their big budget, and other factors also effect. Mostly salman khan movies which did not work on box office are those having him as a special appearance but ppl count them as also salman’ movies. Like in previous years yuuvraj having anil kapoor and zayed khan in equal appearnace, similary god tussi graet ho amitab bachan was sharing equal appearance. Even in heros very short appearance and same case was with hello. So these are not salman khan solo movies. In london dreams he is sharing screen with ajay but he did a superb job and best performance.

  25. Guys why did WANTED became wanted at the box-office?
    it did not have anything apart from Salman and to make him look good the two main bad guys mahesh manjrekar and Ganni (i forget the guys name..sorry but brilliant actor.

    THIS WAS SALMAN’s fist movie after 8-9 months..then we have 2 more in a month..not even AAMIR can make them work???? even if they are good…

    LD lost out 4-5 cr because of cricket matches…that’s true but still…how can u expect 3 movies in 6-weeks and all to have excellent openings..look at Akshay…he has a movie comming after a month and he has vanished himself totaly from media so they forget BLUE and he can generate the same hype for the next one!!!

    On top of tis he is doing DKD…which exposes him even more..and why should he say someone idot and other stuff? good he is open about it but there will some fans for that star for the other star we can’t count..why u want to upset people..the more people buy your ticket the better..all actors fight look at AAMIR and SRK they have more enemity than Salman has with SRK but they are smart people and that is what show business is.. even Salman’s near and dear one hugh his enemy because they are not sure of Salman future and need some bread and butter

  26. @ disappear – salman doesnt decide when to bring his movies …he’s just an actor not the producer and he cannot decide on the release dates ……so stop accussing him for things which he doesnt control or doesnt have a say in …Dus ka dum as far as i know has won him more fans …and has not affected him negatively in any way …..

  27. Good Morning Guys,
    Iam new to this forum and am a Die Hard Salman fan
    Its very sad to start the day off with a SAD news. LD Has been declared a flop in Oveseas Market. Grossing around 1.5 Crs in UK, A mere 98 lacks in USA and 18 lacs in Australia.

    Even in India the collections have surprisingly dropped by 60% on Tuesday with collections figuring between 2 to 2.5 crs. The total of five days comes up to around 22 crs.

    With the cost of LD being 50 Crs, Unfortunately it can be safely said that London Dreams has failed miserabley.

    Its very unfortunate and shamefull as the movie was superb.

    What a Shame!!! Very Disappointed

  28. plz dont say dat Unnati. lets just wait and see wat happens.
    if dis film fails den ive lost faith in box office performances. am not just sayin coz am a Salman fan but dis film waz immense. how can good films not perform well and poor films exceed at da box office.
    btw welcome to bollybusiness Unnati.

  29. If LD first week under 25 crore and if 8-10 crore for 2nd weekend means 33-35 crore and then mon to thu gross 6 crore means 39-41 crore it means LD will be safe zone.
    what u think guys???

  30. The cost of the film is between 50 to 60 crs. So even with a collection of 35 crs the film would flop as distributors share has to be around 25cr to 30 crs for a film with 50 cr Budget to be hailed safe.

    LD is finding it difficult to recover even 40 crs in India. Overseas it is a non-starter.

    I really dont know what went wrong??? Peoplw who have seen this movie are very happy, but the BO Numbers are not there to show it.

    Really i have lost faith in BO. A movie which is good is brought down by negative publicity in News Channels and Paied Reviews by some critics

    Ver Sad state of Affairs.

    With APKGK and Jail releasing, Highly unlikely that LD will even recover 40crs.

    Iam Very Sad and Sorry

  31. LD budget is under 48 crore its confirm because salman and ajay cut there cost.

  32. LD budget is under 48 crore its confirm because salman and ajay cut there cost.

  33. i think LD should be average/above average.

  34. Hi Naveed,

    Thanks for your support. I totally agree that LD is a very good film. But what shames me is that substandard movies like OSO, KI, Blue get BO Verdict which they dont deserve,

    Exteremly Bad state of BO affairs.

    Sorry to say, If LD fails, then i promise i will never watch a Bollywood film in Cinema Halls.

  35. Hi Lucky,

    Hope you are correct. Even in that case, LD Will have to do business of 50 crs to be Average grosser.

  36. we have to wait for clear picture. All depends on 2nd week .

  37. how much hype of VEER any idea coz its a big budget movie.

    please answer Yakuza.

  38. Thanks Yakuza
    any idea of LD collection of yesterday and today?

  39. @ Lucky and Unnati
    lets just wait and see. i genuinely think dat da film will make bout 45 crores.
    25 crores- first week.
    10 crores- second week
    in total run in India 38-40 crores.
    hopefully overseas it will make bout 5-7 crores.
    i also feel like u Unnati dat if LD fails den wats da point.
    however no matter what i am definitely gonna watch Veer wen it comes out.
