  1. hi yakuza i have request u to tell pls how many successfull films r now in year 2010 and also tell their names pls tell.of bollywood.

    • Till now 6 movies has tasted some success. Atithi, MNIK, Ishqiya, LSD, phoonk-2 and now Housefull. Very rare are aware of phoonk 2 success. if you consider LSD a success due to low cost, Phoonk 2 is similar success story. Either accept both or none.

  2. @ yakuza
    so wats ur pridiction for housefull next weekend n week

    • Winner I think next week should be like this
      Fri 3
      Sat 4
      Sun 4
      Mon 2
      Tue 1.5
      Wed 1.5
      Thu 1
      Total 17 – 18 cr
      I just counted minimum and in worse conditions.
      Hopefully It will be 20 cr +

  3. Hey yakuza how much total business housefull can do on the weekend if packed ?? BC will also have a wide release, but i think in number of screens and shows it will even steven for both i am right???

    • Still i am not aware of exact number of screens, It should be 11+ Crore capacity per day.

  4. @ nauman

    hm same here me also predict 20cr+ for2 week ..
    hope for the best

  5. I think, housefull will gross more than 85 crore nett lifetime. Nyway, badmash company gonna be flop. Another flop by yash raj. Yash raj needs shahrukh or katrina for hit status.

  6. Housefull – 41 cr in 5 days
    Posted by: BollyPlus Team, 6th -May-2010, 05:40 IST

    Inspite of negative reviews Housefull opened to packed theaters. Housefull’s first weekend was second biggest weekend (Fri-Sun) in Hindi cinema history. When Housefull collected 32 cr in its first weekend trade analysts were thinking movie will crash on Monday due to negative reviews and mix audience reaction.

    But Monday was also rock steady and drop was just 40 – 45 % as compared to Friday which is very much normal drop. Monday was above 5 cr and Tuesday was also not far behind from Monday. A drop was noted on Tuesday which was 20 % as compared to Monday. Housefull collected 4 cr on Tuesday and now 5 days total is near to 41 cr. 5 – 6 cr more is expected on remaining two days and first week should be around 46- 47 cr which will be third biggest week after 3 Idiots and Ghajini.

    If Housefull will sustain in its second week then 80 cr plus life time is on the cards which will give it a blockbuster status. Else it will wrap up around 70 cr which is also good but not the best.

  7. yakuza wat about veer is veer a success or not.

    With most the reigning actresses in South Indian film industry flying down to Bollywood, actress Vimala Raman doesn???t want to be an elision. Yeah! The actress is now set to make her debut in Bollywood with Ambapali, which is a remake of yesteryear flick with the same title.

    Buzz up!
    The original version had actress Vyjayanthimala Bali performing the lead role of a princess and is now enacted by Vimala Raman. According to the sources, the film will be directed by Ashutosh Gowariker (director of Hrithik Roshan-Aishwarya Bachchan starrer Jodhaa Akbar and Aamir Khan???s Lagaan). It seems that Salman Khan has been approached to do the lead role and rest of the star-casts will be finalized shortly.

    Closer sources of Vimala Raman have mentioned that the actress is very much elated with this big offer as the producers have paid her a big sum.

    Malayalam actress Vimala Raman has been winning rave reviews for her spellbinding performance in almost all her films including recent release in Kannada titled Aaptha Rakshaka.Ali Tuesday, March 30, 2010 04:34 PM (IST)

    MUMBAI: Akshay Kumar was the undisputed king of the box office in 2008, but 2009 has appeared to be a bit of a waterloo for the actor, while Salman Khan has had mixed fortunes. But now it appears that Salman is vying for one of the top slots in the endorsement world.

    According to a trade analyst, ???An actor???s trade performance is directly proportionate to the advertisement offers that he gets. Akshay had a really bad year in 2009 starting with Chandni Chowk. His Kambhaqt Ishq, which was a big ticket film also flopped. His De Dhana Dhan also failed to make his producer and his distributors dhana dhan. In Salman???s case, His Wanted was a hit, while Main Aur Mrs Khanna and Veer were big disappointments. But that one hit has now caught the attention of the advertisers.???

    However, the biggest factor for Salman is that he has stayed clear from all controversies in the last couple of years. A senior vice president of an advertising agency admitted, ???Salman has a great fan following, but his reputation was a big question mark. But after he has appeared in Farah Khan???s television show, Tere Mere Beach Mein, one saw his true image and the fact that he is a Mama???s boy, has completely made him a favorite amongst women. And with women being our target audience, Salman is hot property now.???

    In the advertising rung of success, there is little to beat Shah Rukh Khan and Amitabh Bachchan. Following in their path are Hrithik Roshan, Akshay and Salman. With Hrithik having had no releases last year, his appeal has slipped. Today Akshay has brands like mobiles, television sets, underwear, cola and suitings. While Salman has detergents, jewellery, mouth fresheners, underwear and automobiles signing him up.
    class=”MsoNormal”>Salman confessed, ???I have not been approached by brands before. I have never said no to advertising, it is just that now I am being offered. And I will do modeling, after all that???s what got me to showbiz.???

    Interestingly, the very cola company that Akshay endorses today, Thums Up had been endorsed by Salman, a few years ago. This is the story of the advertising world, whoever succeeds at the box office gets the biggest pie in the market and currently Salman appears to be a bigger favorite than both Hrithik and Akshay.

    ‘Tum Milo Toh Sahi’ about timeless love
    New Delhi, March 30 (IANS) Love knows no age or time – this is the theme of director Kabir Sadanand’s romantic comedy “Tum Milo Toh Sahi”, which is releasing Friday.

    Produced by Nikhil Panchammiya, the film is about three couples played by Dimple Kapadia-Nana Patekar, Suniel Shetty-Vidya Malvade and Anjana Sukhani-Rehan Khan.

    “‘Tum Milo Toh Sahi’ is a film about human victory, when ordinary people come together to combine their strengths and stand by what they believe in,” Sadanand had been quoted as saying.

    Nana is teaming up with Dimple after 16 years in the film. Their last outing together was “Krantiveer” in 1994.

    “The film is about relationships. Throughout your life, it is the circumstances that keep changing. And due to these, the demands from different relationships change. The film portrays how, despite ups and downs, it is conserving the relations that remains the utmost priority and not the circumstances,” said Nana.

    Set in modern day Mumbai, the film weaves together the lives of three couples and gives the message that love is the driving force in people’s lives, irrespective of age.

    While Nana and Dimple’s story is about the meeting of souls, Suniel and Vidya’s is the meeting of minds and Rehan and Anjana’s is about the meeting of hearts.

    Subramanium (Nana) dedicated his life tending to his ailing mother till her end. At 60, he is forced into retirement. Now what? The journey takes disgruntled and cynical Subramanium to Delshad (Dimple) who embraces life-enriching feeling called love.

    Amit (Suniel) and Anita (Vidya) are in the throes of a mid-life crisis and excitement of being in love is now a distant memory for them
    Bikramjeet (Rehan) arrives in Mumbai from up North to experience city life before joining the Army. He falls in love with Shalini (Anjana), an ambitious Mumbai girl. Through the film, the boy who comes to Mumbai becomes the man he was to be and finds his true calling in life.

    Sadanand, who has co-written the story with Rajen Makhijani, is presenting the film without a heavy dose of melodrama. Sandesh Shandilya has composed the music.

    Deepika performs daredevil stunt for ???Lafange Parindey???
    It seems that Deepika Padukone is highly influenced by Akshay Kumar, for the actress insisted on performing her own stunts in Pradeep Sarkar???s ???Lafange Parindey.???

    Recently, ???long legged??? Deepika performed some high action stunts without using body double. In the movie, Deepika plays a tomboy, who will be seen donning leather jackets and performing some adrenaline rushing bike feats.

    But Deepika???s co-actor Neil Nitin Mukesh is finding it hard to match up to her passion. Last week, while performing some high action sequels for ???Lafange Parindey???, Neil refused when he was told to jump into a deep mud pit and asked for a body double. However, Deepika showed resilience and went ahead with the daredevil stunt.

    Talking to a news daily, a close source said, ???Everyone in the unit thought it was too dangerous because Deepika had to walk straight into the pit and fall into the swirling muddy water. Once she fell in the pit only professional divers could help her come out. That???s how deep the hole in the ground was.???

    When enquired, Deepika confirmed the episode and said, ???Yes, I did jump into the pit and I had to make it look like an accident so that the scene looked convincing. I had to do whatever it tookSarkar Wednesday, March 31, 2010 09:16 PM (IST)

    Kareena Kapoor is Marilyn Monroe in Madhur Bhandarkar next!!

    Kareena Kapoor, the sizzling hot bollywood babe famous for size zero figure, is all set to enact the character of Hollywoods most controversial and mysterious sexy icon Marilyn Monroe( famous for her roles in Gentlemen prefer Blondes, Some like it Hot, etc) in upcoming Madhur Bhandarkars flick. Sources close to Madhur Bhandarkar say that the ace filmmaker chose Kareena Kapoor to enact the role of Marilyn Monroe due to her svelte, sexy, size zero figure as well as her famous Kapoor lineage in the industry. The film will see five men coming into Kareena Kapoors life as was the case with Marilyn Monroe (Monroe had three marriages and rumored to be involved with US President John F Kennedy and his brother Robert Kennedy). Madhur Bhandarkar, who is famous for his realistic flicks like Chandni Bar, Page 3, Corporate, etc, has done extensive research on Monroe before deciding to cast Kareena Kapoor in the lead role and go for the kill. The buzz doing rounds in the industry is that Madhur is fully aware of the touchiness of Marilyn Monroes life history in the US and hence would be diluting the reality in the film to a certain extent to avoid any conflict with vested interests in the US or in any other countrySarkarFriday, April 2, 2010 06:52 PM (IST)

    SRK Salman coming together
    IndiaGlitz [Thursday, April 01, 2010]

    Yes, the two mighty Khans have broken their mountain of differences, they have burned their hate, crushed their egos and have finally patch up and hugged themselves and how. Girls beware??? reading this might land you in hospital and then you will have to rely on the charm of Ranbir and other Khans for your sweet romantic dreams.

The Hindi remake is titled ???Gay Gay Re Saiba??? and will be helmed either by Anurag Kashyap or Dibaker Banerjee. The movie will be produced by TV soap queen Ekta Kapoor???s Balaji Films and is likely to go on floors on September 23rd 2010.

    With the acceptance of LSD among mature audience, Balaji is now open for new path breaking ideas and they are considering ???Gay Gay Re Saiba??? to be there first milestone in this journey. A source close to Balaji reveals, ???Gay themes in Bollywood are taken as a filler or a joke nobody has tried to make a serious film on gay sentiments, even Karan Johar???s films use gay elements for fun and nobody highlights their problems and make them the main characters???. The source further adds, ???Gay Gay Re Saiba will be the first on screen serious gay love story in Bollywood???.

    Based on the ‘E. Annie Proulx’ story about a forbidden and secretive relationship between two cowboys and their lives over the years, ???Brokeback Mountain??? helmed by acclaimed director Ang Lee (sense and sensibility), the film got rave reviews and bagged 3 Oscars for Best direction (Ang Lee), Best original score (Gustavo Santaolalla) and Best Writing – Adapted Screenplay (Larry McMurtry and Diana Ossan) in the year 2006.

    Wednesday 31st March 2010 09.00 IST

    Boxofficeindia.Com Trade Network

    The first first quarter has come to an end and only My Name Is Khan emerged a hit. The film managed hit theatrical business in India while Overseas it smashed all records in most markets expect North America and Australia.

    The second biggest success of the quarter was Atithi Tum Kab Jaoge? The film started slow but picked up from its second day and has had a healthy four week run till date. Atithi Tum Kab Jaoge? will manage lifetime nett collections of 29 crore with a distributor share of 14 crore.

    The other successes were Ishqiya and Love Sex Aur Dhoka. Ishqiya grossed around 22 crore nett and had a share of 10.50 crore. Love Sex Aur Dokha is also a success thanks to its very low production costs of only 2 crore. The film managed a distributor share of 3.25 crore in week one and is likely to add another 0.75-1 crore as collections fell heavily in week two.

    Veer managed to score in circuits dominated by single screens like Bihar, CP Berar, CI and Rajasthan but business in major circuits like Mumbai, Delhi/UP and East Punjab was dull.

    see according to boi also veer a minor success.

  21. asad BOI calls it below average which is near flop, taran calls it a flop, komal calls it a flop, yakuza said the same, that it is almost flop venture which is below average, so where he is wrong?

  23. they dont count other version, yakuza has said its below average, so did BOI, a below average is more like a loosing affair. BOI has veer as veer liftime 36 crore net, yakuza has it at 39.

  24. housefull is good with 46 crore and might be hit.

  25. Nauman u r irritating now..yakuza its ur blog or his??nauman i heard u also ran a blog.go there

  27. farhad u check boi veer second week they said veer a average overall and also lifetime collection 42cr also and indicineand bollyplus also saying this yakuza also said this first and yakuza said veer below average then he also said ki below average so if veer is below average so ki is also below average.

    Boxofficeindia.Com Trade Network

    Q. What was the reason that Ishqiya managed to take a good to decent opening?

    K Chauhan

    Q. The media has really gone against Veer? Is it really a flop film.

    A. No its not a flop as per Indian theatrical business. Distributors of many circuits will make money while Eros will lose money and today its very rare that the whole chain makes money. Overall the Indian theatrical business will be Average/Above Average.

    R Parmar

    Q. Tees Maar Khan is the expected Christmas release so will it have competition from Ra1?

    A. No. Ra1 should come early next year.

    K Agarwal

    Q. Can Ishqiya be a Hit?

    A. It has chances as it has reasonable costs and is started pretty well. Good weekday business andsolid second could mean hit.

    Ishqiya Good First Week Rann Dull

    Saturday 6th January 2010 09.00 IST

    Boxofficeindia.Com Trade Network

    Striker opened to a dull response of 5-10%. The film will struugle to make any impact at the box office.

    Ishqiya did well in week one with 14 crore nett business. The film has fared especially well in Delhi/UP and East Punjab. The second week should also see healthy collections. The distributors have easily recovered costs in the first week itself and the producers may also cover costs in time

    Rann grossed around 6 crore nett in week one. The film fared very poor all over and even though there is no major competition this week the film will drop badly. The film will suffer huge losses all round. DISASTER

    Veer droped in week two with around 7.75 crore nett business to takes its total to 38.75 crore including Telugu version. The Hindi versions stands at 37.75 crore nett in two weeks. The film is a Hit in Bihar, CP Berar, CI and Rajasthan but lower in other circuits. Overall AVERAGE

    Three Idiots adds another 4.75 crore nett to take its five week total to around 196 crore nett. ALL TIME BLOCKBUSTER

    see these r the links..

  30. This discussion is about the collections of Housefull not the flop Veer with sharabi Salman

    Why aren’t off-topics being deleted?

  31. Housefull was expected to be a great hit..
