  1. ONLY 30CR AFTER HERCULES OPENIGN MEANS POOR.

    YAKUZA WHATS YOUR SAY ON MONDAY I THINK 4CR OR 5CR WHTS YOUR TAKE PLZ LET US KNOW

    • day has just started, but big fall is nonetheless. There are two reasons for collections fall on monday. ~20% fall is due to lower ticket prices on weekdays compared to weekend rates. second lesser footfalls on weekdays. In case of kites footfalls will be much less today. I am expecting 3-3.5 Crore collections today.

  2. @ yakuza bhaiya
    pls give ..weekend brakedowns

  3. Boi said ravan is also assaociated with heavy price tag.is that true?

    • Kites was reportedly cost to Big Pictures for Rs. 120 Crore, while deal for Raavan has not revealed yet, but it is certainly not as high as kites. I got some hints of 80 Crore sign off for Hindi/Tamil/telegu versions. But there is no official confirmation yet. Deal is still in wraps. In case if 80 Crore turns out right rumour, it will not be a dicey task for movie to collect 80 crore from all version all over the word and from all resources.

  4. thank u so much …

    seems wom was very poor ,,,,
    btw houseful lshows healthy jumps on weekedn despite of t-20 matches ……..

  5. yakuza plz tell me how much does raavan need to net to be a hit in hindi version?

    • This is hard to tell at the moment as product is sold as a package deal for all versions (reportedly @80 Crore), so combined theatrical business worldwide should be around ~90-100 Crore Nett to be termed as success. This is not dicey task IMO.

      • Ya u r rite..a bachan movie needin 90cr net 4 recovry thats not a dicey task ,its IMPOSSIBLE..tamil version ll be max 20cr ovseas 15cr…55cr hndi impossible..RAVAN LL FAIL BIG TIME…BACHANS CANT CROSS 45 BARRIEN EVEN WID BIG HYPE ND GREAT WOM..IF RAVAN IS BAD THAN IN INDIA IT WONT CROSS 20CR

      • Yaku r u mad…60cr 4 a bachan movie is next to imposible nd u r behavng like that each movie of bachan cross 60cr..i thnk u forgot paa nd guru..both wid excellent hype nd excellent wom only crossd 40cr..ravan at max ll reach 45 to 50in india only if movie ll out of the world..if it cums bad than DISASTER

        • Beingsalman , why you always behave like MAD ?? Raavan is good hyped and buzzed movie. How can you say at the moment that it will not cross 45 Crore ?? Remember even Guru crossed 45 Crore in Jaunary, 2007. If Mani + Abhi combo worked in 2007 then it can also worked in 2010. Raavan has fare chances to cross 75 Crore if it trend like Guur.

        • specially after talking crap and bullshit about Kites, you should think twoce before any statement. Look what happened to your Kites prediction ?

  6. Yakuza, what is the budget of Rajneeti and how much does it need to collect to become hit?

  7. yakuza.what.iz.the..collection..of.houseful.at..4th..weekend…

  8. Yakuza’s breakdowns

    Thu paid previews – 2.75 (though BOI and BOC mention 1.75-1.85)
    Fri – 10.5
    Sat – 8
    Sun – 9

  9. M expecting a lot from this hrithik starrer flick but this made me sad.

  10. Yakuza
    how has kites performed overseas. No one is giving updates on that.will it be hit in overseas
    katrina

    • I am not overseas expert, but i heard it not going great in overseas too. However spotted at No. 10, but numbers are still disappointing.

  11. yakuza predicted that it will be 30 crore after friday saw crashing

  12. YAKUZA YAKUZA CAN YOU TELL ME HOW MUCH HAS hOUSFULL COLLECTED FROM SINGLE SCREENS AND MULTIPLEX

  13. SALMAN KHAN IS MOST POPULAR ACTOR IN BOLLYWOOD,may 2010

    (www.rudefox.com/katrina kaif)

    salman khan(0.40) is declared most popular actor in bollywood,2010 again
    no 2 is srk(0.31)
    no 3 is ritik(0.15)
    no 4 is akshay kumar(0.14)
    katrina kaif (1.00) is more popular thn sallu,srk,ritik n akshay

    Bollywood Actress Katrina Kaif is reportedly more popular than most of the bollywood stars combined. Believe it or not but Katrina Kaif has become the most popular bollywood performer ever and no one is even close to her popularity as of now. We have included the popularity graphs which are quite accurate.

    Looking at the graphs you will notice that hrithik roshan, salman khan, akshay kumar, and shahrukh khan are all lagging way behind katrina kaif. No wonder Kaif has become one of the highest paid actress in the industry in a short span of time.

  14. KATRINA KAIF IS MOST POPULAR ACTRESS, may, 2010

    Britain???s talented Katrina Kaif has become the most popular bollywood actress. But what does really count for her popularity against other Indian actresses.

    As in case of popularity among Indians, the fact that Indian guys like whiter skin in females cannot be ignored. Because of her name ???Katrina Kaif??? most people assume her as Indian or Asian Muslim which she is not.

    The white card is such an important factor in her popularity that comparing her to the second most popular women ???Aishwarya Rai???, Katrina Kaif is almost twice as popular as Aishwarya.

    The other factor for Katrina???s popularity is the fact of her being associated with Salman Khan that started to get her roles in high budget movies and soon made her the highest paid actress.

  15. Prity according to sabse favourite kaun voted by 10 million akki has been the most popular out of the top 5.

  16. katrina my foot..cant be compared with the superstar Ash..go preach somewhere else!!

  17. YAKUZA/JEEVCY

    Has Housefull hit the magic 70crs number it needs to be a clean hit?

    How is Badmaash co. faring?

    • Housefull has not touch 70 Crore yet, but next week it will get better no of screenings, there are chances of it to cross 70 Crore next week. This week collections of housefull will almost be negligible.

  18. @Chengez, Hahahahaha kat is far better than ash. Do u think ash can act well than kat? At least, kat can give better movies than ash.

  19. so raavan is a risky pricey project?

    • Kites was reportedly cost to Big Pictures for Rs. 120 Crore, while deal for Raavan has not revealed yet, but it is certainly not as high as kites. I got some hints of 80 Crore sign off for Hindi/Tamil/Telegu versions. But there is no official confirmation yet. Deal is still in wraps. In case if 80 Crore turns out right rumour, it will not be a dicey task for movie to collect 80 crore from all version all over the word and from all resources. combined theatrical business worldwide required be around ~90-100 Crore Nett to be termed as success. This is not dicey task IMO. 60 Crore from Hindi version and 40 Crore from rest of two versions will do the trick.

  20. Yakuza tell us whats the single and muplex collection of HF and did more people watch HF in single screens than Multiplex? Please yaar give an update, and do you think akki is crowd puller in SC.

  21. also i asked u to make a list of 90s.

  22. akki is crowed puller eevrywhere ss ho ya mp

    buddy

  23. last 10 months main housefull 4 mvis n bigees tnon holiday opening ever

    akki is king

  24. @jeevan my kites prediction was bang on dude..i said 100percent both in ss nd multiplex…movie was bad thats why it droppd.it was yakuza who was sayng that kites ll open only in plexes….btw dostana nd sarkarrja came last yr wid good hype nd good wom .both 45cr…DO U KNOW WHT 75CR MEANS..he is abhshek not khans or akki..ravan ll follow kaminey way

  25. yakuza bhaiay

    hf update pls

  26. @beingsalman you said ‘yakuza u seems to be vry happy wid kites failure….it ll cross 50cr week despite all this which ur bachans can never get even in their dreams…’

    It will be lucky to get lifetime of 50cr now….

  27. @bansu ya u rite..kites was rejected this is the only reason not hritik star power.if the movie was liked than it ll reach 150cr..2nd point ya bachan has never crossd 50 nd he never ll…even wid all positive factors like big director big budget great promotion great wom his biggest hit is guru wid 42 cr net…paa 30cr net

  28. beingsalman, yakuza was correct in his prediction that it fell on fridays hence when weekend we were expecting to break 3I made 30 crore net including paid previews.

  29. big director big budget great promotion great wom his biggest hit is guru wid 42 cr net…paa 30cr net

    Beingsalman said this on May 25, 2010 at 10:07 am | Reply

    lol a u being salman
    paa relese on 700 screens hohoho

  30. wait nd watch..abhshek bachan ki aukat pta chal jayegi tum 5 6 fans ko…i wrote 5 nd 6 coz he has only this much fans nd thats too on bollybusines

  31. Lol is abhisekh a big star now? The man has only given 3 or 4 average/above average/hit movies. Because he’s big b’s son he was allowed about 30 flops. He does not have the drawing power of akki, hrithik, srk or aamir! He’s on par with the likes of shahid and salman. Salman is no longer a mega power, in the last decade he’s given 90% flops! Amir nd akki open the best. Amir sustains the best. Amir, hrithik, akki, srk and saif are the top 5.
