More Screenings For Paa In Third Week.

Looking at exceptional performance of Paa over second week, Exhibitors has decided to increase the screenings of Paa in third week. This type of occasions is rarely seen in bollywood when any movie gets more screen space than previous week. And this is not the case in one or two multiplexes, Every multiplex across the nation is either retaining the same shows or increasing the volume. Almost 20% screenings/shows will be increased in multiplexes and even some single screen cinemas are showing upward trend. 

 Second Week of Paa has seen excellent weekend (7.25 Crore) and Exceptional Weekdays (Approx. 4 Crore). 4 Crore weekdays collections (44% drop) is dream collections even for big budget multi-starrer ventures. De Dana Dan second weekdays collections was merely 2.5 Crore on 800 screens. While Paa has collected 4 Crore from mere 300+ Screens.  

If Third weekend of Paa will remain steady at 20% more screens, then we can expect similar collections in third week too. Paa is now heading for higher achievements to go beyond 40 Crores in 3 weeks itself.

  1. seems like Yakuza got so frightned by Satyam the shit or the Shot that his is accelerating his proceess of adding virtual crores to fulfill the falses virtual hopes and dreams of Satyam (the collaborator of IBOF) to make Paa reach the 45-50 cr

    not Bene : this 45-50 cr was annouced by Satyam after the first week as his feeling about how much Paa can reach

    Satyam was not bilieving the 18-19 cr Yakuza estimated for the first week of Paa and was saying it’s 20+cr and Bingo after 4-5 days IBOF annouces 20.5 cr first week for PAA and prediction for 50cr in the long run ( the numbers propagated by Satyam and Co)

    • @sam, more number of shows in 3rd week itself is evident of excellent second week .. what proof you want else ???

      Please either growup or see MNIK promo .. 🙂

  2. sam what happened???

    ur worst nightmare has come true….PAA is on its way to superhit status. lol

  3. Heading for blockbuster status … Wowwwww greattttttt

  4. Increase in number of shows clearly indicates agenda of BOI .. second week is clearly excellent .. otherwise how can number of shows be increased by 20% in third week ????

    Paa is clear winner and 3rd week screenings is slap at the face of boxoffice india poor agenda … 🙂

    • boi agenda or yakuza agenda?

      • definitely BOI agenda … BOI is well known anti-bachchans

        • because they dont give dream-numbers that bachchan fans want for his films 🙂

          • actually BOI do not give any number. Only some crap.
            they reported some fishy collection of 480 screens and claimed it as weeks collection!!! thought 700 prints were there in week 1

        • @Anuj, why you are pretending, you know it ny heart that BOI is so much against bachchans … How can they give only 5 crore second weekend .. if this number would have been true then third week screenings could never get increase .. Can you explain any reason for more number of shows of any movie which drop by 60% in second week as par BOI ????

      • And yakuza is most consistant guy giving most accurate numbers way before others .. if you check his BO reports since KI days, he is always first one to report … and most accurate reports .. FYI .. his boxoffice site is under constructiona and will be up by April,2010 (With most detailed reporting ever on net)… So wait for big bang … 😀

        • I have asked him Paa first week numbers from big centres long back. he has still not given for even one centre. why?

        • Anuj, first he is very busy these days (as he himself written to satyam) in construction of his site and other works, you can see he also come rarely for comments reply nowdays … He never put center wise collections from very first report and this is his policy for this blog, so Paa is no exception here (why are you screaming about it ?) , Let’s wait for his site where we will get not only center wise but also cinema wise details .. 🙂

        • @ Jeevan yes is very consistent except for this Paa

  5. Yakuza, where are the first week numbers from big cities? You are claiming big totals for all India but you got no numbers to defend such totals.
    I wish you show us your numbers from Mumbai, delhi, Hyderabad Ahmedabad etc.

  6. seriously I wish bachchan family sticks small budget films only. they are not suited for big budgeted films like rgv ki aag, aladdin etc.

  7. sam you think iboos and satyam are same? I know both are bachchan fanatics but they are different guys. Its a tragedy that this site’s numbers for paa are very close to those at ibos.

  8. boi sucks. Thanks to good box office sources like yakuza. Paa is a big hit and deserves to be. Everybody in india knows it except for boi type bottomfeeders.

    • I also love sites like ibos who throw inflated totals for bachchan films without any real centre-wise numbers to defend.

      • ….@Anuj, why you are pretending, you know it ny heart that BOI is so much against bachchans … How can they give only 5 crore second weekend .. if this number would have been true then third week screenings could never get increase .. Can you explain any reason for more number of shows of any movie which drop by 60% in second week as par BOI ????

  9. Welldone PAA.still rocking in cinemas.PAA will be bigger in thrid week then 2nd week.Now PAA is superhit but Sir If will above 40 crore then Can we say then PAA blockbuster.

  10. http://www.thefilmstreetjournal.com/category/latest-box-office/
    Paa first weekend collection RS 13,03,68,877.

  11. Where r u sleeping man.PAA did above 35 crore and declared super now going to blockbuster.so a wake from sleep.

  12. I(d)I(o)T says in NaachGanaa:

    Some plex in somewhere increased 1 show! Huh. Hardly an indication of trend. The buzz has died down now and it will make at the max 27-28. Even media perception in India is just an average/above average movie and BO performer.

    • @ sam if it reaches 30 cr nett it can be called hit(because of many factors as claimed by yakuza.. like the distributors are the producers etc.. although I think 35 cr would be a clean hit anad yakuza agreed to that also in previous posts)..but 40 cr nett won’t be superhit for sure. 40 cr nett means 5 cr DS increase and income from other souraces remains fixed how can the ROI increase from 200% to 300%?

  13. Thanks Yakuza for the unbiased reporting for Paa as well as for other movies in Bollywood. I’m happy that Paa is continuing to do very well at the boxoffice. Paa is indeed a success for the Bachchans!

  14. avatar will overshadow paa easily. rocket singh heading for disastrous second week.

  15. PAA IS ON ITS WAY TO A SUPER HIT STATUS BUT…..watch out for the biggest blockbuster of 2010…..”AVATAR”.

  16. @ yakuza isn’t Paa a multistarer venture? Only thing is its budget is low (that too becuase the actors are the producers) but the promotions and hype was the same as any other multistarer.

  17. i dont understand y the actors play with there careers by charging huge fees. this not only makes directors hesitant in casting them but also increases the movie to b flop big time. example – akshay kumar

    • @ rohit don’t forget it is because of Akshay Kumar that a movie like KI and Blue has got such a big opening( if they had signed a non-supertar and made those movies the toal collection of those movies won’t cross 15 cr nett), and if you analyse carefully the producers always made prifit..its the distributors who loose money and in case of DDD the producers and the distributors both made a substantial profit.

  18. Idiot on Naachgaana:
    Some plex in somewhere increased 1 show! Huh. Hardly an indication of trend. The buzz has died down now and it will make at the max 27-28. Even media perception in India is just an average/above average movie and BO performer.

  19. Reply of Yakuza on Naach gaana:

    @IdIoT, As i have clearly stated in report,

    “this is not the case in one or two multiplexes, Every multiplex across the nation is either retaining the same shows or increasing the volume”

    And FYI, Movie has already made 30 crores in two weeks itself, Second week collections are 11.25 Crore (7.25 Crore weekend and 4 Crore Weekdays).

    Increase in volume of Screenings is result of this exceptional business over second week.

  20. Angels and Beld response to Yakuza on Naachgaana:

  21. Sorry this is the reply of Angel and belds:

    LOL ritz. Just a week or so ago – I commended Yakuza on his site and then Paa happened 🙂

    Yaks – no offense – but you are making a mockery of yourself now with this ridiculous reporting on Paa. But chalo more power to you – u had a choice and u chose to go the IBOS way. So live with that stigma..

  22. Yakuza defending himself:

    “but you are making a mockery of yourself now with this ridiculous reporting on Paa”

    Dear angels, If movie is doing really good and third week screen volume happen to be better than second week, should i not report this rare incident??

    Last time it happened to All the best and even in that instance i report this news instantly, check this:

    http://bollybusiness.wordpress…..next-week/

    Paa is not first instance for this case!! What’s the problem you find here if you get to know about good trending of paa which is clearly evident??

  23. Angels and Belds reply to Yakuza:

    Yaks – BO reporting in India isnt an exact science. To that extent – anyone and everyone can come up with data and numbers. Is there a scientific way of proving someone’s nos. wrong – unfortunately no. So yes – can i 100% prove that you are wrong – nope I cant.

    I am sorry but most of us cannot accept that you and IBOS are the only ones to get it right – while the rest of Bollywood journalisticdom have got it wrong. Especially since we know how bad IBOS is. But go ahead and keep up your stuff. I am just saying that with Paa – rightly or wrongly – you have lost significant credibility imo. Is there a one in a million chance that you are right and we all are wrong – sure – and do accept my apologies if that is the case. But my bet is currently on you fudging the numbers – willingly or unwillingly – which is damn unfortunate.

  24. Angels and Belds again :

    >>Yakuza, if a bachchan movie is doing well dont expect any positivity here!

    trust bachchan crazies to make everything personal. maybe these folks should be given 3D glasses to read the comments here – nobody has been negative about Paa or Bachchans – people have just questioned the false reporting on BO.

  25. Sandy reply to Yakuza false reporting on NaachGaana:

    Yakuza: Maybe BOI are underreporting, but don’t expect me to buy a report (IBOS) that says “Paa is the biggest success of this era!” or that it will easily touch 50 crore or some such nonsense.
    It is a well-accepted film, but why this desperation to push it to the level of TZP-CDI when it is not!

    Also, even Taran is quoting figures close to BOI, and he was very positive about Paa in his review and first week reporting. What agenda could he have?

    I may not take BOI at face value, and they may be reporting a few crores less, but IBOS is a joke. And to be honest Yakusa, I am not really following your reports anymore either – though a boxoffice site is always welcome. So good luck.

  26. Sandy again:

    Paa is a charming enough film, just not a buzz film or a hugely popular one the way some people want to make it out to be. The film itself is good, but no classic. But beyond that, the Bachchans simply do not have that sort of BO clout (neither Abhi nor Big B) to expand on the core viewership.

    As for the number of shows, Yakuza might be right that theatre owners are retaining the number of shows from last week – though this is by no means a ‘rare occarance’. I think many multiplexes are going with 4-6 shows of Paa, which is good. Rocket Singh
    is at 6 shows, which shows a drop!

    This indicates a coupe of things

    1) the film is being liked enough (though most of these audis given for Paa screenings are now the 200 seaters, which is why theatres are retaining the shows. So it a definite success. I’m only debating the quantum of its success and I do not believe IBOS on that.

    2) The fact that Rocket Singh has plummeted and there are no otehr Hindi releases has given Paa an additional week.

  27. as you see now almost everyone is aware that when it comes to Bachchan movie Yakuza and Bollybusiness are on the same line as IBO(F) and the Biasdness of Yakuza in favor of Bachchan could not be proven before but thanks to Paa
    every body is relating bollybusiness to the silliness of IBO(F) the only to Biased sites that are in Hurry to declare Paa a Blockbuster if not an all time Blockbuster movie to Project it in the same Piedestal as TZP and CDI.

    Poor Bachchans Bakhts are desesparate as a bachchan movie doing well is rarety occasion these days (once in 2 years or so) so they jump to the occasion (Hype, Lies Propaganda, False reporting)… hahahaaaa

    • Are you crazy, Mad or what ?? You can do better sam, Please stop imitating and posting comments from another blog. Ha .. 🙂

  28. poor sam who is repeating himself again and again with no evidence. Sam i feel sorry for you. Your worst nightmare has come true. PAA is heading for superhit status.

    poor sam!!

    lol

  29. NOT MANY PEOPLE KNOW THAT BOTH SRK AND AJAY DEVGANS DEBUT FILM WERE ALL REMAKES OF MALAYALAM FILMS…srk’s first film deewana was a remake of INNALEY 1989 STARRING SURESH GOPI AND SHOBANA,WHILE AJAY DEVGANS PHOOL AUR KAANTEY was a remake of PARAMBARA 1989 STARRING SOUTH SUPERSTAR MAMOOTY…A LESSER KNOW FACTS!

  30. NOW IT LOOK LIKE my name is khan IS A DIRECT RIP OFF OF HOLLYWOOD FILM RENDITION with a 9/11 background and a bit of hurricane katrina that wiped out louisina in 2005.

  31. sam i knw ur felling you r tired now/ next time you can support bachchan movies we wont mind it 😛

  32. poor sam!!

  33. Now dont say threater wallas are Bachchan supporters.
    They increased shows because Paa is doing extremely well and inspite of Avatar releasing Paa is getting more shows.
    Paa is heading to become 2nd film after Wanted to cross 50 days.

  34. I dont know if Paa is going to cross the 40 crore mark or not but i think it will definitely be played in the theaters for at least 40 days.It is that kind of a film which will be a hit after it passes 1 month threshold like Black. This film IMO deserves to be a hit because of Big B’s performance and i think it will. BOI and the other sites will declare it a hit after 1 month. Best of luck to Paa. 🙂

  35. Box Office: Paa and De Dana Dan theater collections from Kolkata
    Wednesday, December 16, 2009

    The following are some theater collections being reported in distribution circles for Amitabh-Abhishek Bachchan-Vidya Balan starrer Paa in Kolkatta during its opening week 1 there.

  36. Great reporting Yakuza, Thanks for being always first among entire media .. Paa looks like having great legs to sustain in next one month atleast .. i am expecting 50+ crore atleast .. It will go Baghbaan Way .. continues 10-12 weeks number one .. thanks once again ..

  37. I know this .. this is going to happen again .. BOI fucked up big time in past while eporting for B&8, Guru and black(and many more bachchan movies) .. Paa will again going to fuck them up big time .. Paa is showing his strength week after week .. and BOI will not have any other option at last but to accept the HIT tag of paa (which actually is going to Super hit) .. 🙂

    • Paa is surely going on baghbaan way .. Movie is not only doing well in Multiplexes but also at single screens .. At my place (Chandigarh) …. Fun cinemas, fame and Big cinemas are retaining shows and DT cinema has increased show from Two to three .. All others are showing 4 shows in third week .. This is remarkable ..

      Exhibitors are no fool who are increasing volume of shows .. Movie must have done really exceptionally well in second week .. And results are visible from Third week screenings ….

      Thanks Yakuza .. for insrant reporting …….. 😀

  38. Yakuza .. i have seen your reply at NG .. I can only say “EK Maara But SOLID Maara” … KUDOS .. 😀

  39. PAA is superhit and SAM is going to hospital because of too much crying since PAA is released.POOR SAM.he is very dishearted with success of PAA.well done PAA.

  40. Are yaaro..bus bhi karo ye PAA ne kitna mara. Ye pucho ke usni tere MAA ko to nahin maara..Tab to tikh hai..Lets just say that PAA is the biggest blockbuster and we change the subject. LEts talk about 3 Idiots and Avatar cause PAA is getting on everyones nerves. No one is going to win their arguments.

  41. […] Read the rest from HERE […]

  42. Finally i am very close on 2nd weekdays prediction for Paa(4 crore), This is best trending among all movies in 2009, Friday (15th day) is again stable despite Avatar mania, Paa is unaffected and attracting sizeable audience to plexes, I am expecting 1.5+ Crore even today.

    Meanwhile Avatar opened to good response but not as good as expected, there are packed houses at high end multiplexes, and Hindi version is comparatively dull, Overall opening is good but collections will surely be less than 2012 opening day figure.

  43. Arrey Yaar Paa has a smooth way to become an all time blockbuster only here an in IBO(F.

    “In other words, you can say Avatar opening is very good but not monster as expected before release”.

    this comment of yours about AVATAR is just a way to justify the manipulating (ading other virtual crores) of Paa in the third consecutive week to finish it at 40 cr in order to please you master Guru (Satyam the Shit).

    after diminishing the virtual crores added, the real all time runing of Paa will be at 30-32 cr at best. a semi hit considering all the bachchan family staring in this movie or small hit if you are equating BigB+aby to the likes of emran hashmi or ranbir kapoor (Paa is in the league of Wake Up Sid).

    • get well soon sam .. i do have sympathy with you … 😀

    • haaaaaaaaa

      sam bhai .. i really pitty on you .. Now even taran has declared Paa a hit … Ha .. 🙂

    • Sam, don’t make mockery and personal comments for any person linked to this blog (weather member or mod). You can criticize movie/article/star as much as you like, but stop making personal comments. You should take it as my first and last warning.

  44. SAM are you back again from hosptial???

    poor you. how u feeling??

  45. Sam so what if PAA is a superhit. you do not have to be sad about it. there is more to life than hoping a film to flop!

  46. Poor sam!! my heart bleeds for you.

  47. Taran has declared Paa HIT :

    http://www.bollywoodhungama.com/trade/top5/index.html

  48. Poor SAM.PAA is emarging Blockbuster.And soon You will go to hospital again but this time u will go to Mental hospital because PAA is superhit.And soon will be declare best script of 2009.

  49. Taran adarsh called Paa a hit already:
    http://www.bollywoodhungama.com/trade/top5/index.html

    cnn-ibn reported paa already a big sucess
    http://ibnlive.in.com/videos/107106/rocket-below-the-mark-paa-a-big-hit.html

    IBOS already declared PAA a hit…

    but idiots like Sam and fake boxoffice BIO are hellbent to declare Paa just an average fare….no wonder why they r frustrated from day one since paa released…….I never trusted BIO and i never will

  50. just saw paa and is amazing film,becharra SAM and Anuj having a second hart attack….grow up the film is fantastic and get real you srk fanatics jelousy creeping in for srk fans…

  51. Paa was rock steady in week three with around 4.75 crore nett taking its three week total to nearly 29 crore nett. SEMI HIT
