MNIK – 58 Crore In Two Weeks

As expected, MNIK will close near 58 Crore by end of day. From here on, Movie is expected to add another couple of Crores and should likely to wrap between 67-70 Crore.  Verdict : Above average

Two new releases “Teen Patti” and “Karthik calling karthik” will open tomorrow. Teen Patti will see 400+ Screens and KCK will see 500+ . Both movies should get critical acclaim. Opening of both movies is all set to below average with KCK some edge over TP. Early reviews of both movies are in range of 3-4 Stars, critically Teen Patti seem to be having an edge over KCK. With WOM, Teen Patti can do wonders at box-office.

  7. its 56 cr dear not 58 and its flop

  8. Boss !! .. thats why I love BB .. still Thursday evening, and week’s figures are already in.

    Based on week 1 figures, 2 week preddiction was 55 cr, so MNIk managed to sustain with 58 cr. Either that, or actual week 1 was higher than 41 cr and it showed expected fall.

    MNIK might add max 6-7 cr in week 3 bringing total to less than 65 cr. Total lifetime will be less than 70 cr.

    Thats better than my earlier prediction of 65 based on BB’s week 1 figure, but equal to an even earlier prediction of 70 cr after 1st weekend

  9. so Veer = MNIK

    both above avg 😉

    • I think both film did just well at the boxoffice. With the large amount of Budget both films had, it was always difficult to get the hit tag. Above average means to me some kind of success for both Salman and Srk. At least there movies did not flopped. Happy for them.

  10. Complete Post release analysis of MNIK by KOmal Nahata

    The whole of the week gone by has had the trade people talk about just one thing – whether Shah Rukh Khan’s My Name Is Khan is a hit or a flop and whether its box-office collections have been bigger than those of Aamir Khan’s 3 Idiots.

    Although comparisons are not fair and are, in fact, odious, it is necessary to talk of the two films in the same breath simply because Fox, the worldwide distributor of MNIK, has been doling out figures to the media, claiming that its film has surpassed all previous records. By implication, it means MNIK has collected more than 3 Idiots. Surprisingly, most of the media people have been buying the Fox story without so much as verifying the same. Actually, not so surprisingly. The way the television news channels had gone on and on about the historic opening of MNIK on the day it released (12th February), one was actually prepared for the continuation of the media circus. After all, the news channels had been misreporting from day one about how MNIK was running to packed houses in Bombay in spite of the Shiv Sena boycott threat when actually it was running to poor houses in several cinemas. And the weak houses of MNIK were in no way a reflection of the film’s merits. Rather, it was the fear factor at play as people did not want to risk their lives after the Sena threatened to force closure of cinemas by means fair or foul.

    However, the TV channels seemed to have taken it upon themselves to blow the trumpet of My Name Is Khan, Shah Rukh Khan and Karan Johar even if that meant speaking white lies. It is just not clear why the news channels were so ashamed of the near-empty houses which, given the circumstances prevailing on that day, were perfectly understandable, that they chose to ‘turn’ poor attendance at cinemas into “unprecedented rush for the film”. Good for the people behind MNIK. And great for Fox, which had paid Rs. 85 crore for acquiring the worldwide rights of the film and spent another Rs. 15 to 20 crore on its promotion, marketing and prints. But bad for journalism in general.

    After the first weekend got over, Fox lost no time in issuing press releases to the effect that MNIK had shattered all previous box-office records of Hindi films and had emerged as the film with the highest first weekend gross. Just one line should prove how far removed from reality this claim of Fox was: In India, the net collections of 3 Idiots in the first weekend were around Rs. 40 crore whereas the comparative figure for MNIK was Rs. 27 crore. Even if one were to assume (wrongly) that Khan made it up in the Overseas circuit, it was no secret on Monday morning that its collections in India had begun to drop – and drop rather markedly. Resultantly, as against a first week net of Rs. 80 crore of 3 Idiots, the first week of MNIK ended at Rs. 44 crore net – just 55% of 3 Idiots.

    No doubt, the Overseas territories have been throwing up fabulous figures in the case of MNIK but then, even 3 Idiots had amassed a rich haul. In UK, of course, the grosses of MNIK far exceed those of 3 Idiots in the first week but the story is not the same in the US or the Middle East. Agreed, MNIK has been released and will, in future too, be released in territories abroad where no Hindi film has ever been released, but those virgin markets are not expected to yield revenues in crores of rupees.

    The shocking part is that these very TV channels had lost no time in reporting the crash in collections of Akshay Kumar’s Blue from Monday onwards, but many of them pretended as if there was no fall in audience attendance in the case of MNIK. Even if some did report about the crash, they preferred to highlight the Over­seas story and underplay the equally, if not more, important India story which they themselves had been underlining till just some hours and days back.

    It is to present the correct picture that we give hereinbelow the approximate first-week distributors’ shares of MNIK and 3 Idiots in India, circuit-wise:

    As mentioned above, the collections in the Overseas territory of MNIK are absolutely fantastic. The first week’s share of MNIK from abroad is around Rs. 16 crore, approximately Rs. 1.5 to 2 crore more than that of 3 Idiots. But the response on home ground is definitely not upto the mark, as is evident from the sharp decline in collections from Monday onwards. This also gives the indication that whereas 3 Idiots continued to yield handsome shares for 7-8 weeks, MNIK may not be able to do it for more than a couple of weeks.

  11. Q: How much will My Name Is Khan lose?
    A: The optimistic losses for Fox will be in the range of 20 crores. But it could be more. The way its gone down in America, after opening at $2mil it may not even reach 4 there. That’s gross. Not the distributor’s take which will be only half. The total overseas return share for distributor Fox will just end up around 30-35 crores. And India share will also be around 30-35 crores as most of its revenues are from multiplexes and there the share % goes down to 42.5% of nett in week 2 and 37% in week 3 as per the multiplex strike settlement of 2009. So the total theatrical worldwide revenue for Fox will be Rs 60-70 crores against an investment cost of Rs 100 crores+. Do the math.

    • There will be an additional 2.5% bonus as well as the DS has crossed 17.5 crores from the 6 leading multiplexes.
      Plus the deal includes all the rights except the music rights i.e. satellite, home video, etc

  12. srk n kj r fraud,they r telling lie.

  16. Q: How much will My Name Is Khan lose?
