Box-office : Kites falls flat this weekend

After decent opening weekend, Kites collections fall heavily this weekend with just under 5 Crore Nett to pocket. Second week should finish under 8 Crore. There are no chances of any significant gross further as Raajneeti will arrive next week, will swipe off all screens and attention next week.

Housefull gets most benefit from crash of kites, it had decent 4th week and good 5th Weekend. Movie went past 72 Crore mark after 5th weekend. Housefull total will be target to cross for next biggies to come this year. Raavan, Action Replay, Tees Maar Khan, Rockstar and Golmaal-3 are best contestants to cross this barrier.

  1. Yakuza could you let give us weekly breakdown of Housefull?
    According to you 1st week was 46 cr. But after that you never posted weekly collections of Housefull and tentatively you are posting life time.
    All Akki haters especially SRK fans are asking weekly breakdown. Because they want to proof that still MNIK is biggest grosser of 2010.
    So Plz do us favor.

  2. oh! great news yakuza bhaiya.
    superp…………….

  3. Yakuza bahiy it means housefull cross 72 cr in on 5 weekend means easliy cross 73 cr

  4. Yippiee, thts gr8. HF crossed 72 crore n likely to cross 73+ cr nett this week. If Raajneeti too failed, then HF will cross 75+ cr, thts gr8. But hope, Raajneeti too will be great but won’t cross 55 crore nett lifetime.

  5. So kites is a disaster! Bad for Hritik.

  6. i agree bout da oder films excluding RAVAAN. it will not cross 50 crore. damn sure

  7. PAKISTANI GET THE FCUK OUT OF HERE…GO TO UR LULLYWOOD AND PISS AROUND!

    • hahah

      am laughing at ur comment. learn to talk wid manners. i never said anything bad about RAVAAN. plz get out of da bachans arse. lol

      • AT LEAST HAVE SOME RESPECT FOR MANIRATHNAM…WHO ACCORDING TO MANY IS INDIA’S BEST TILL DATE!(GIVE RESPECT AND TAKE RESPECT)

        • again ur going overboard. i have never said anything bad about mani ratnam. infact i very much liked GURU. but if ur talking bout top directors den i would put Hirani ahead of him. Even Amir said he is da best in da country.

          PEACE

          • LOL…ATLEAST GIVE HIRANI 10 YEARS IN THE FIELD OF DIRECTION AND THEN TELL UR AAMIR TO COMPARE WITH THE GREAT MANI RATHNAM…MAJORITY OF THE ACTORS IN THIS COUNTRY WOULD ACT FOR FREE IN MANI’S FILM!!

            • lol. am a Salman fan. okay from my side i apologise about what i said bout RAVAAN. a week after its release ill come back and we will see what r da results.

              • OK..well if u r a salman fan,i will give a early prediction about his forthcoming film which is a remake of malayalam superhit BODYGUARD..IT WILL BE SALMAN’S BIGGEST HIT AFTER HUM APKE HAIN KAUN :-)PEACE & LUV!!

                • thankx. wat bout DABAANG. i try not to look 2 far ahead. but i do think BODYGUARD and PARTNER 2 have da potential to be big

                  • Dabaang seems to be in the same line as Gangajal.

                    • if DABAANG has good content den it will surpass WANTED. WANTED was an ordinary film, Salman was extra ordinary

                    • Yup, Dabang has good potential, though if i didn’t mention it because release date has not been confirmed yet.

  8. Dear Yakuza, You are bang on as far as predictions for Kites and Houseful are concerned.I guess your acuuracy is due to your perfect understanding of the pulse of Movie going Indian masses.Great job.I think you are one of the most authenticated sources for Bollywood box office in India.Keep up the great work.

  9. I completely back Srinivas on Yakuza as i have been roaming around for years and couldnt find a single source that is as closed to the predictions of this “magician”…KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK,WE FILMIBUFFS NEED YOU!!

  10. Pakistani u r write.they put ravan ahead of dbang,ravan 40cr bhi touch nhi krega,bachan ki chatni band kr do

    • Paa itself has touched 40cr with limited release. Raavan with huge release will easily surpass 40cr. Though Paa had very good WOM and Raavan will not have the same but considering the big names associated with the movies and two full weeks to run it should easily do unless audience reject the movie like Kites.

  11. Paa net was 30cr not 40cr..paa had evrythng but only managed 30cr ..

    • Paa was released on 500 prints and manage to gross 39 Crore life time nett (And this figure is confirmed by big pictures also, as i am working with them, i am more than 100% sure about these numbers). Ok, beingsalman, even if you take 32+ Crore figure of BOI, its not bad at all looking at small release and not audience friendly genre.

  12. paa was a good film but am sure it did 30 crore net. plus in PAA u had da legend big B.

  13. Yakuza could u plz tell us know weekly breakdown of Housefull n MNIK ? Plzzzzzz

    • It was 68 Crore upto three weeks (46.5 + 14.5 + 7) and ~2.25 Crore in fourth week + ~1 Crore in fifth weekend

  14. Yakuza pls tell me when the promo of khatta meetha release and happy for housefull akki rocks

  15. Paa was not audience friendly .is this a joke??paa was typical multiplex movie.,r u expecting ravan to work in single screen?btw releasing a movie on more print never increases its viewer coz no of fan remains same..thats why ab jr never crosd 40cr except once.

  16. I still remember during paa days u bachan fans at that time was v sure that paa ll make 65cr…inspite of gud hype excellent wom 2 open weeks it made only 32cr…their is a life above bachans yakuza.acc to u ravan is bigger movie than DABANG..no wonder boi fired u

    • No one was predicting 65 Crore for Paa. 39 Crore is handsome figure for a small release. Even SRK’s small movies never able to garner much despite bigger release than paa, Paheli was wrapped under 15-16 Crore or so. Paa got Hit tag and Handsome figure, what else you want ? And yes , who fired me ?? If you know nothing, better keep quite. And again who is making raavan bigger than dabang? is dabang promo and release date out yet ? didn’t i clear it in above comment ? Why fuming it without any base ?

      • Dear Yakuza,

        I feel you need not give response and justify your credentials to every Tom, Dick and Harry when you know very well that some hardcore fans of any star never get convinced for what ever you mention.Your articulations are based on solid numbers and proofs where as their views are based on their inner zeal to project their own star.

    • How much Veer did ?
      37 crore for a huge movie released in 1200 screens in India.
      Even Delhi-6 has better per screen average than Veer.
      Salman’s films just work in interiors of India.
      Abhishek Bachchan films also do better business in overseas than Salman film.

      • r u indirectly trying to say AB jnr is bigger and better dan Salman.

        VEER un derperformed for many reasons.

        but da sort of film it was it should be compared to other similar films.

        ASOKA
        MANGAL PANDEY
        JODHA AKBAR
        VEER

        out of dem only JA successful and VEER beats da oder 2. am glad bhai has never given us a DRONA. lol

  17. yakuza, how is the buzz of Rajneeti?

    • buzz is good, but not as huge and boxoffice friendly to open it bumper response. Its opening at boxoffice will be an interesting case to see.

  18. being “SLUMMAN”…THEN WHY R YU HERE GET THE FCUK OUT OF HERE AND STICK UR STINKING FINGER IN THAT “boi” shit!

  19. bhai log yakuza bhai ko yahan bulana hai to simple thing is bacchans ke bare me bitching shuru kar do bhai jahan bhi hoga turant aa jayega…..lol
    sab 4 din se halla kar rahe hai tab nahi aaye bhai ab beingsalman ne bachhans ke bare mein 2-3 taarif ke shabad kya kahe bhai turant prakat ho gaya….

  20. Hey wat is d budget of km.

  21. yakuza keep up the gud work, but its also true that you should not be too much into bachans otherwise some of the followers will think this BO is pro bachan, just like BOI proved its pro srk.

  22. Yakuza bhai. Don’t care abt any one who says you biased n bachan fan. People will never happy with any one. I still remember I gave review of veer on Thursday and gave 3 stars so every sallu fan called me biased n akki fan. But they saw by their self on Friday when all critics gave 1.5 or 2 stars.
    So keep it up u r really nice and honest trade specialist .
    Could u plz let us know weekly breakdown of MNIK plz?

  23. Looking at its high price tag, is KITES the biggest flop in the history of indian cinema ?

  24. hi can you tell me what is the distribution share of veer and is it more than kites or below it and is veer a really below average az BOI said with 38 crores?

  25. Kites flops…bigtime. deserves the makers right for giving the audience crap.
