Boxoffice : Badmash Company Opening

Badmash Company is going to surprise many including me , Movie has opened to good response in morning shows. Opening at NCR and Mumbai multiplexes are in range of 40-60%. This is very good opening considering mediocre star cast. Though movie is expensive(35 Crore) and reports are plain average, It is remain to see how much strong legs it will hold in coming days. Movie released on capacity of approx. 11 Lakhs foot falls per day. Total capacity of weekend is ~29 Crore. The way it opens and looking at reports, if manage to pick up normally on weekend, it should do around ~15 Crore weekend.
Meanwhile last week release Housefull has collected approx. 46 Crore in first week. Second Friday opened to average response of 30% upto afternoon shows. Housefull occupying lesser screen space compared to BC in second week. First weekend of Housefull was 31 Crore. It is remain to see if Housefull manage to sustain this weekend(~15 Crore).

  1. Well the early morning shows are much cheaper. 100/70 compared to shows after noon 150/90. So lot of couples see the movie then. I think the afternoon shows might show a drop though evening and night shows would be better.

  2. yakuza what about HF will it pass 60 net in 2nd week?

  3. @yakuz what about HF first week?

  14. @Yakuza Dude first week of housefull is 47.5 cr according to other sources

    what are u saying?

    and second friday of HF is on par with BC firs friday u dnt worry it has sustained

    its already a hit by komal nahat,taran adarsh and BOI

    haha u think HF undereporting will help Raavan

    • sunny, My calculation comes to 46 Crore. You really think i am under-reporting Housefull ? Dude i never did this. If all other sources would have been reporting 40 Crore first week, even in that case i would stick with my own 46 Crore. BTW 46 Crore is quite very good collections and way better than MNIK first week (41 Crore as per my calculations).

  15. [b]HOUSEFULL grosses Rs. 95 crores

    [/b][i]May 7, 2010 06:49:21 PM IST
    Bollywood Trade News Network

    Eros International Media Limited has announced a successful first week performance for Sajid Nadiadwala’s HOUSEFULL. Eros International released the film on 30th April 2010 and the film has since grossed Rs. 95 crores worldwide[b][blue] with Rs. 75 crores gross in India (Rs. 52.3 crores nett) and Rs. 20 crores overseas.

    [/b][/blue]The first of the big ticket releases post IPL, HOUSEFULL enjoyed a wide release with 2000 plus screens with large number of screenings across multiplexes, making it one of the most anticipated films this year. The film recorded a very positive opening weekend at Rs. 48 gross in India, making it the second highest opening after 3 IDIOTS.

    Commenting on the film’s performance over the week, Nandu Ahuja, Sr. VP – Distribution, Eros International Media Ltd said, “Post the fabulous opening weekend, HOUSEFULL has remained steady through the week. With the second weekend coming up, we are confident the film will continue its superb run over this weekend too”.

    HOUSEFULL brings together once again the HEYY BABYY team of Eros, Producer Sajid Nadiadwala and director Sajid Khan. A comic caper in inimitable Sajid Khan style, the film stars his favorites Akshay Kumar and Riteish Deshmukh along with Deepika Padukone, Lara Dutta, Arjun Rampal and Jiah Khan.

  16. Mediocre star cast? Why does everybody underestimate Shahid? Dude has managed a good opening for Kismet Konnection and Kaminey. Hadippa opened to a decent response even with competition from Salman bhai. Only Chance pe dance didn’t get good opening. Now he’s back. He’s not capable of 40 crore opening yet but if a movie is well hyped like Kaminey he can easily get 30 – 35 crore opening

  17. @winner, hey dude can u provide me link for this. Anyway housefull had been biggest grosser in first week after 3 idiots n ghajini.

  18. so Housefull is sustaining this weekend too 😮 nice nice :glad:

  19. 75 cr gross is 45 cr nett and not 52.3 cr nett as reported !!!

  20. Yakuza , how many screens have BC and Housefull ?

  21. dont understand why HF occupying less screenspace when it did humongous 1st week, shouldn’t that happen oncethe run ends?

  22. i agree farhad..that’s quite strange 🙄

  23. looks like YRF ‘s playing some weird game :/

  24. yrf repeting laga chunri main daag type thing

  25. YAKUZA, The budget of Badmaash company is NOT 35 crores. Komal Nahata says it is 27 crores including print and publicity . PLEASE correct it.

  26. housefull is showing drastic drops in collection evn when the screening is less second week 16-17cr
    lifetime nett 76-79cr

    anirban and winner you are useless akkii fan eros will overeport so only akki fans can believe real figure is btw 46-47cr
    just to fullfill sajid dream of 50cr they do it

    and ome thing movie is crap the only plus point was that it release after months because of ipl even bc will get 4cr opening so

    • @ nitesh

      why don’t you also visit Bollyplus.

      @ Yakuza

      I hope you don’t mind me saying that. In fact all users of Bollyplus are regular visitors of this site. Including me. You and the crew keep up the good work.

    • @ nitesh..mind your language..I only clarified 75 cr net means 50 cr nett ( not 52.3 or 45 cr)..I am not saying the report is reliable..or the otherway..thats a different issue…I just wanted to clarify the technical details of nett vs gross buisness..looks like you are very upset(or angry) with the housefulll sucess..

      • Anirban, 60% is used to calculate the gross/nett conversion, although it is much more a perception than a reality figure.

        Here is how it works
        A ticket costs 110 Rs in Mumbai which includes 100 Rs for nett and 10 Rs. for Entertainment taxes. However, a lesser Entertainment Tax would not allow the film makers to show a higher number. So they use the tax that was a few years back, 60%. So for 100 Rs, they say gross is 160 Rs, when in actuality, it is 110 Rs. It does not make a difference to the filmmaker, government made 10 Rs or 60 Rs on that ticket.

        So in case of Housefull, they calculate the gross as 75 cr (45 cr nett) and give it to people like Taran Adarsh. People like Taran, being kind to the filmmakers uses a 70-72% gross to nett recalculation and comes up with a superinflated figure which is very different from the actual.

        • @ jeevcy..I think u r wrong..entertainment tax is 33.33% ..all over india..ask yakuza..

  27. housefull collection its 47 cr net by boi n 52.3 cr net by indiafm

  28. dnt worry farhad n soman.still with lss screen space HF has 60% collection which means 4 cr for friday.movie can earn anywhere 14-16 cr on 2nd weekend…….

  29. @ Yakuza Boss Update pls

  30. yakuza can you update 1986 biggest hit, was it nagina or karma the biggest of 86? i thought it was nagina but boi says something else, pls and can you update akki, amir, srk, salman and govinda career in 90s please.

  46. Sajid Khan prediction of 60 cr will come true, albeit for lifetime even though he meant first week

  47. i dont know why so much for akshay movie only….no body said nething bout MNIK eventhough it was just an average affair….. even critics they call HF unbelievable and useless comedy ……people r not watch HF bcz they think comeedy is not relistic then what bout partner….GOLMAL RET,,, r they realistic….. i think except that shock scene everything was cool n fine….even if the movie is a hit u all wont call it a hit….an the one who reads it will beleve it to be an average affair which is not true….what u expects from a comedy movie …..i have seen people laughing as if they inhaled n2o5 in hall between the movie…..if u go with the intention that it wont be gud then it can never be..never accept nething from a comedy movie and then u ll njoy…..

  48. ^^akki dont give adam to those chichore critics n media thats y they alyays bash akki n his movies

    n media n critics paid by othr stars n big guns fo bollywodd to do thoses chichore things
    shame on tham

  49. even people like rajivee masand …wo to others movies ke review main bhi akki n uski mvis ko gaali deta h
    lolz we all know

    rajive masand ko kya amount pay kiyajata h for those things by kjo

  50. exactly its like calling hangover, ma ma mia, austin powers not realistic.

  51. HF should be a hit man, and nahata didn’t say its 60 crore film, if thats the case 60 crore includes 12.5crore sattelite, 8 cr dvd/music, by the end of its run thearetical worldwide would be near 100crore, which should give worldwide share of over 40 crore dis share, so thats that recovers print and publicity cost from 62,and then it has dvd/music, sattelite to recover all that.

  52. zoom tv reported that housefull have collected 52 crores on its 1st week [movie budget 45 crores]

  53. you stupid,housefull was sold at 55 crores to eros.

    • ha. sajid gave a discount of 5 cr over this for KI poor performance .. so 60-62 cr

  54. All said & done…BOI & Komal ..declared HouseFull as a HIT…any discussions over it is quite useless & won’t change this fact..

    full stop.

  55. now haters can get over it 😉

  56. n kjo n lal mirchi give 30 cr discount to fox for mnik

  57. WIll ne one tell me yesterdays colxn of HF….

  59. @ raghav
    y u think khataa meetha was hit
    its was super hit at least
    low budget movie h

    n its lyk bb type comedy movie diff grene nt usual comedy
    n btw akki priyan como ke bahut fans h
    movie will cross net 50 cr at least n it was only 35 cr mvi i think correct me if im wrong

  60. @ winner who said Khatta meetha was hit …i just predict it to be hit…..I believe that the promotion and marketing priyan does is not enough to have grand opening ….waise its what i believe….i too want it to be SuperHit….i know the cost is less…I fit crosses 50 then akki 4 in a row back to back SUPER HIT. I do believe Nikhil ADVANI can repeat sucess of KAL HO NAA HO….for that songs shd be awesome…

  61. HF is first superhit of 2010.

  62. looks like we’l have to wait till after its 3rd w/end to see if its reached the magic 70crs no. it needs to be a clean hit. anyone here thinks it’l do it?

  63. have watched the original of KHATTA-MEETHA…and iam afraid that PryaCOPYdarshan made a gamble this time with the remake choice as the movie is in the lines of YEH TERA GHAR YEH MERA GHAR TYPE…AND WILL BE HARD TO MAKE THE HINDI BELT HAPPY WITH THAT SORT OF COMEDY!!!

  64. I think we should give credit to akki for grand opening of hf. Although, heavy crash reported in 2nd week, yet, very good first week should ensure this movie to be hit atleast.
    But, akki should consder choosing scripts wisely. He has a huge fan following, that’s why, his films open good but his choice of poor films prevents his films to sustains after first week.

  65. @ to all
    well nw akki never sign any new movie …after thank you

    aftere finishing thank you akki take brake n after it strt shooting wid vipul shah mid mext yer on new movie

  66. Another Akshay movie crashes. I bet we’l have some idiotic media sources claiming it is a hit etc. I atually thought this movie would somehow reach 70crs etc…however now its looking unlikely because BC has released and Kites is coming up.
