  10. Good list YAKZ bro 🙂

  11. so Dabangg holding up very well in friday also. and i am sure that the friday collection would be around 6.5cr range.

    3idiot showed excellent business in the weekdays because that was the Christmas week and with that new year holidays are also there.so it is little bit unfair to compare both the movies.

    3idiot is a master piece and it got the gobal acceptance of people and plus long holiday week and Aamir Khan (this name is more then any thing). all of these X factors made 3idiot a history.

    so dont compare Dabangg with 3idiots, it has only one x factor i.e Salnam bhai.

  12. Dabangg 5.5cr 2nd friday compare to 11cr of 3i.

    • Stop these comparisons with 3I. I said after the weekend this film won’t get close to 3I. That film was a MASTERPIECE. us Salman fans are just happy that Salman has given a smash hit.

  13. 2nd Friday official collection not yet declared so stop spearing faking news.

    btw Babangg is already BB with DS more then 50cr, just waiting Whether it touches 130cr mark for ABB.

  14. @naveed srry why not???media is pointing and comparing with 3i collection and u salman guys also very excited ,eager and hoping to beat 3i collection so now tht its dropping ur not want to compare this one with 3i thts not right the comparison with 3i is inevitable and u cant ignore tht

    • My friend when did I compare. I feel like am repeating myself. I have no control over media. They can say what they want mujhe kya. Am along with other Salman fans happy that Salman has another monster hit. Bas nothing more nothing less. If I may add without offending any1 I am sad by how many people wanted DABANGG to fail and now drop heavily.

    • did u notice that the drop happned on the 1st monday and has not been gradual. after monday when the film dropped close to 45 percent (which was basically multiplex audiences withdrawing support ) its been steady through the week in the range of 6-7 crores. imagine that happening for 4 weeks, with 25% drop each week and the collections will be over 200 crores.

  15. @yakuza btw can it be affected by anjaana anjaani ????????and your prediction for lifetime of dabangg?????????????//

  16. @yakuza according to boi 3i is the highest grosser inflation adjusted worldwide ur thoughts?????????/

  17. @yakuza boi reporting tht inflation adjusted figure of sholay is 162.97 crore and hum aapke hain kaun is 309 crores i dont think it is right sholay should be much higher then

  18. btw why no site is reporting the 2nd friday collection of dabangg from tht i asssume it drops…. if it was huge then they write it assap bt i think if it collects less than 7 crore it will be dissapointing

  19. Anjaana Anjaani won’t affect Dabangg much IMO.WHY? because AA is multiplex movie,it won’t work in SS and Dabangg is doing wonders in SS and in multiplexes it has already dropped,so it won’t affect much.

  20. Dabangg story so far: Its Dabangg Salman Khan all the way!
    Arbazz Khan is on cloud nine these days together with debutante director Abhinav Kashyap. Dabangg has changed their lives forever. Even for Superstar Salman Khan, Dabangg is a turning point, re-estabishing him as a Super Star more convincingly than any other movie ever before.

    Dabangg has become the highest opening day grosser as well as the highest weekend grosser of all time at the Indian box office, breaking the records earlier held by 3 Idiots. The film set another box office record, grossing Rs. 81.50 crore in its first week, thus becoming the highest opening week net grosser by overtaking the previous record of 3 Idiots. (wiki)


  21. @yakuza why dnt you publish some articles about hollywood movies??????/ tht would be interesting…maybe you wont bt if u would thn it will be very nice

  22. There is no official collection of 1st week dabangg.

  23. Will Anjaana Anjaani release on 24th septembe

    High Court is giving a verdict on 24th September on the Babri-Ram Temple issue. Anjaana Anjaani is releasing the same day. This is the official statment issued by Ranbir Kapoor a short while back on it:

    “It is very unfortunate that the movie is releasing on 24th September as the big hearing is on the same day. Right now my only wish is to postpone the release of the movie. Its not in my hand but I will be talking to the producer and the director about it,” says Ranbir Kapoor.

    if dis happens dabangg will hv more scrren space in 3rd week.

    Zandu balm hui, darling tere liye doesn’t seem to have gone down well with the manufacturers, and the company has dashed off a notice, dated September 17, to Arbaaz Khan Productions Private Limited claiming it is the sole copyright holder of “not only the product, but as also the name Zandu balm”.

    It has asked the producers to withdraw the song or delete the name of the product from it, failing which the firm has threatened civil and criminal action against the producers.

    The notice adds, “In the song, the name Zandu balm has been used continuously at various places.

    Mumbai (Bollypatrika News): Salman Khan home production “Dabangg” breaks another box-office record. It has broken the record of “3 Idiots”.

    Trade analyst Amod Mehra stated “Judging by the first-week performance, Dabangg looks like a blockbuster.”

    Film distributor Suniel Wadhwa stated “Dabangg’s first-week net box-office collection is the highest ever figure for an opening week.

    It has surpassed all major circuit business, leaving 3 Idiots behind with big margins in Delhi, UP, east Punjab and Rajasthan.

    It has done less business in Bombay circuit, West Bengal and Mysore.” “Dabangg” has done well both in small screens as well as multiplexes.

    Audiences went gaga over Salman’s role as a corrupt cop. Amod Mehra predicts that “Dabangg” will revive the trend of the 70’s action packed entertainers

  30. Salman in a video for Bigg Boss 4

    Salman Khan, who just returned from Norway where his recent release Dabangg was screened at an international film festival, has shot a special music video to promote his upcoming TV reality show, Bigg Boss 4 on Colors. The actor reported at around 2 pm for the shoot at Film City, related stories
    Bigg Boss 4 inmates revealed
    Bigg Boss becomes bindaas
    Stunts, Salman and the same old reruns
    It’s Neetu Chandra vs Veena Malik in Bigg Boss!
    Goregaon’s floor No 1.

    Khan insisted on his pet composers Sajid-Wajid, who also composed chartbusters for Dabangg with Lalit Pandit as a guest composer, to conceive the track for the video, titled Chele chapate aur jhol jhapate, yahin fatenge sab bomb patakhe, that encapsulates the show’s look, feel and character.

    Pony Verma, who was a judge on Chak Dhoom Dhoom, and has worked with Khan on various international shows, has choreographed the one-and-a-half minute video and Milan Luthria has directed it. Khan has been styled by Ashley Rebello.

    Just for fun
    “It features Salman grooving with girls. We’ve tried not to give him too many difficult dance moves because his attitude does it all. Even if he moves around in the frame, looking into the camera with a smile, it works,” beams Verma.

    Wouldn’t it have been better to have all the contestants of the show featuring in the video? “But that would have given out everything from the show right now. We managed well with the girl dancers. Salman looks chilled out too. I couldn’t have asked for more,” asserts Verma.

    The video will be on air from next Sunday, September 26, till the season ends this year. It’s expected to be aired on music channels too.

    Ashwini Yardi, head of programming, Colors, says, “Since the time we’ve announced Salman Khan’s name as the host for Bigg Boss 4, we have witnessed unprecedented excitement in our audience. And as Salman promises Andar majaa aur baahar majedaar (inside fun, outside entertaining) in our series of promos, we thought creating a music video would take the excitement one flight up.”

  40. Champ Chulbul rides repeat wave
    The Telegraph
    Week one: 115 shows. Week two: 125 shows.
    Calcutta just can’t have enough of Chulbul Pandey aka Robin Hood Pandey aka Salman Khan.
    After powering its way to box-office glory in the first seven days, Dabangg is set to roar even louder in the second week, courtesy more shows at multiplexes. “With the craze for Dabangg growing by the day and no major releases on Friday, it was but natural for us to increase shows in Week Two,” says Virendra Marya, the regional director of INOX.
    Dabangg (Fearless) took Rs 30 crore to make, has grossed Rs 80 crore net in week one ‘ beating the 3 Idiots record by around Rs 3 crore ‘ and become the “Zandu balm” for a Bollywood “badnaam” after a hattrick of flops, Kites, Raavan and We Are Family. Some are roaring at Salman’s shirt-ripping, rib-tickling act, others are dancing in the aisles to Munni badnaam hui’s Zandu balm belly shake. “Dabangg has surpassed all expectations and getting bigger with time,” says trade analyst Komal Nahta.
    Dia Mirza’s tweet ‘ “The Verdict: DABANGG a BLOCKBUSTER! Go watch it!” ‘ sums up the audience mood.
    “Those who watched it during the weekend have gone back for a repeat watch on weekdays,” says trade analyst Taran Adarsh.
    Like software professional Kaushik Banerjee who watched it on Friday and returned on Tuesday. “I wanted to enjoy the fun one-liners one more time,” he says.
    No wonder the record occupancy figures. “If the weekend collections were 90 to 98 per cent, the weekday figures were steady around 60 to 65 per cent,” says Marya of INOX.

    Standalone cinemas too are saluting Salman. “With Dabangg, we have recorded our highest nett collection ever, around Rs 8.5 lakh in the first week. The weekday figures were even better, much higher than 3 Idiots,” says Navin Choukhani of Navina Cinema.
    Week 2 too promises to belong to Chulbul Pandey, with fists of fury and funny lines. “The festive weekend should push up the crowd count further,” says Mahendra Soni, the film’s regional distributor.
    Bollywood is hoping Dabangg signals that happy days are here again. “The hype around Anjaana Anjaani is very strong, courtesy Ranbir Kapoor (and Priyanka Chopra),” says Debashish De of Aum Moviez, the film’s regional distributor.
    Shilpa Shetty summed up: “Super film! Totally massy, shot classily. Full-on paisa vasool.”

  41. @Tarzan , dont worry dude Dabangg 2nd week main hi easily Ghajini ka record break kar dega.

  42. Dabangg will definitely surpass Ghajini record in 2nd week itself.

    I am doing comparison not to humiliate any star or any movies. every successful movie had something special in there own way. these movie were already set milestone and set benchmark 4 newer movies.

    I am a biggest Aamir khan fan , i saw 3idiot at least 5 time in 10 days and TZP 2 times in a week. so he is a biggest star in the country now. he is above all….

    but i love Salman khan as human being and one of biggest suprestar 4 decades. b4 Dabangg every one knocked him out 4m the bollywood topper list. he return with a Bang with Dabangg and i am so happy 4 him.

  43. Hey guys any confirmation about 8th days collection of Dabangg.

  44. @subhu , u r 100% right dude.

  45. .Hey guys dont compare with 3-idiots t Dabangg .3-idiots was a masterpiece. Dabangg is a salman show.One man army.

  46. i jst booked tickets for tomorrow.today is housefull nd tomorrow 2.forget comparisons nd jst enjoy brthrs.

Dabangg should easily cross the 100 crore nett mark by the end of its second weekend. The ten day business should be in 103-105 crore nett range. The Friday business was better than Thursday. Below is the breakdown of the second Friday.

    Mumbai – 2.05 crore

    Dabangg has already done the unthinkable task of surpassing 3i’s first day, first weekend and first week total.

  53. Dabangg Salman Khan is back with a Bangggg

    5. Dabangg:- 50cr+(just in 8 day)

    • subh wat kind of clever stupid ploy is dat. to compare lifetime business of other movies with just week one collections of dabangg and show dabangg at the bottom. if u were comparing honestly, u wud either comapare week one collection of all movies and dabangg wud have been at the top, or waited till the lifetime collections of dabangg came out.

      which reminds me. guys have u seen the revamped updated boxofficeindia. if any one had any doubts about the insincere intentions and sharukh khan favouriing of box office india then there is real proof. in the records for the decade 1990-1999 (top left of the home page) they have made an adjustment and broken the collection in two parts pre 1994 and post 1994, making the excuse of ticket price hike, as if in any other decade the ticket prices were never hiked. this has not been even done for the decade 2000-2009, although the jump in ticket prices in at least metros was much higher because of the coming of multiplexes in this decade.

      but the second clever trick is that hum aapke hain kaun has been put in the category of inflated ticket rates movies while the fact is that the ticket rates were hiked after hum aapke hain kaun single handedly revived the industry and the exhibition business in the country. but hahk did not get the advantage of increased ticket rates, dilwaale dulhaniya le jaaynege was the 1st one to have the advantage,

      thirdly the 61,000,000 (61 crore) collections post ticket price hike DDLJ have been adjusted to 267,77,000, 00 while the 69,75,000,00 (almost 70 crores) collections of hum aapke hain kaun pre ticket price hike have been adjusted to only 309,26,00,000. how come??? also 14 crore collections of aankhein pre ticket price hike have been adjusted to only 26,00,00,000. now can any mathematcian in the world explain that wen DDlJ collections have become more than four times with only 15 years of inflation and may be 300% (3 times) ticket price hike, how come aankhein’s collections have not even doubled decpite 17 years of inflation and at least 600% (6 times ) ticket price hike.

      obviously if BOI had not played this dirty trick and adjusted simplu by either adjusting agianst average ticket price of inflation/wholesale price index then not only the gap between collections of Hum aapke hain kaun and Dilwaale dulhaniya would have increased but also the gap between aankhien and DDLJ would have decreased, with sharukh khan looking like a much smaller star. and this is just the tip of the iceberg. the same fraud has been played throghout the data of last twnty years collection. i just want to ask one question. should not the owners of such a fraudulent site be put behind bars? is it a trade website or sharukh khan’s pr site

      • danish that 26 cr fig is for aankhein ajusted on 94,that’s not the total adjusted fig of aankhein,infact they have not done any adjustment for movies pre 94

      • hey dude this is just formal comparison, i popsted this to show that Dabangg crack the topper list with in 8days only. yes of course Danagg will go far 4m this and will be 2nd grosser after its final run.

        i am a layman and i have little idea ab these adjusted price and inflation adjustment. i posted this by only talking the total net collection.

        and U Woooo,, ready to put me behind the bar.

  54. Congratulation to all salman’s fans for great success of Dabangg.

  55. 3 idiots k 4th day whole news channels n media ne hungama macha diya thatha that 3idiots made 100 crore in 4days.they were telling gross collections. n after that media n news channels 24 hours chilla rahey thethey tht 3idiots ne sholay ka record break kar diya.

  80. Aur saju bhai ,, Karan arjun Atb nehi tha .. Yeh Blokbuster tha ..

  81. Sonakshi Sinha Rocks Salman Khan! Or is it the other way round?
    Who would you vote as the USP of Dabangg? Shatrughan Sinha’s solemn daughter Sonakshi Sinha or is your vote going to go to good old and bold Salman Khan? Known to have given a rise to many an actresses careers, Salman Khan is the centre of all attention this time too. But then, we say, that Sonakshi has been better than all other counterparts in being an equal of Salman in Dabangg. Isn’t it?

    Did you think Bhagyashree was as romantic in Maine Pyar Kia as Salman was? Or was Nagma as ferocious as Salman in Baaghi? Certainly not. It is Dabangg which sees Sonakshi being an equal mettle as Salman, as fearless and outspoken and warm, as he is.

    Although Salman has rediscovered himself in the movie, what with a complete new moustache and slim fit shirt and trousers, it is the rustic belle in Sonakshi which rings a bell in the hearts of all.

    This new comer, then, is more than a show piece in the movie. be it her glances or stares, or her typical rustic accent to portray the character, the movie would not have had been a major hit, based only on Salman’s shoulders. (ENSNN)

  82. @John , BOI fake result deta hai dude . dont believe in it . Karan arjun was ATBB dude.

  83. Lol … Ho sakta hay fake news… bt kisi bhi web site me chala jao Karan arjun ko Bolckbuster hi bole ga ..

  84. Aur ha BOXOFFICEINDIA jesa,, Esa koi website he jisme appko full details milega.. I am sure esa koi w.s nehi hay ..

    • Then why not you comment at BOI ? don’t waste time here. Go to Srk.org and lick Abid feet. He is friends with Ashok and harminder of BOI and heavy supporter.

    • I am also a distributor and know owners of boi and ibos. All i can say that both sites suckss .. both gives wrong numbers. I distributed Sunny starrer Apne and no one presented the real collections of movie. Though i am very less on distribution now, but i am always aware of actual collections as i am member of distributors committee and always gets updates. Both BOI and IBOS sucks, their numbers are out of airs (specially old one), IBOS is better for old movies all i can say.

  85. wat according to you Mr.ghulam dabanggs week1 collection nd tell me who gives d correct figures.

    • Abhi to batana mushkil hai, lekin der saver main punjab ke collection to bata hi donga. Dekh lena phir ki BOI/IBOS ke colelctions kitne match karte hain. we distributors generally laugh on these sites. Hamari jeb mein paisa aa raaha hai aur hame hi bana rahe hain … 🙂

  86. So Gutam sahab ,, hame plz yeh to batao hum kon si website folow kare ???? plz

    • Film information and Trade guide reported centers are good (even they have 10-15% error). Lekin they don’t give all india collections.

      BOI/IBOS jo estimate karte hain, sab bundle hai. Ek dum bakwaas. Ab Tak chappan ko maine east punjab mein distribute kiya tha, BOI ne us waqt bola 45 Lakh in first week, Jabki mera take home (distribution share ) hi 42 Lakh tha …. Nett to kam se kam 65 Lakh tha … Every one is fake .. Paisa hum log kama rahe hain, aur ye log hamari ankhon mein dhool zhok rahe hain. BOI ka owner Ashok mere office pe kitni baar aaya tha ki main use weekly collections dun. Maine usko “Apne” ke colelctions diye, but usne Bada chada ke pata nahi kya likh diya …. I never give him collections again.

  87. Aisa nahi hai ki main Yakuza ki collections se sahmat hun, But i like the way he presents numbers and articles. And uski old movies information (boxoffice operation) kafi sahi hai … I like that.

  88. @gutam… Yarr hum kisko folow karu ????

    • Only trade guide, filminformation and complete cinema amagzines for reported centers figures. Iske alawa sab bakwaas hai, ye jo all india estimate nikaal rahe hain sab log, ekdum bundle. Ye log estimate karte hain. Agar movie ek cinema mein 70% collection karti hai to dosre mein 100% bhi ho sakta hai and 10% bhi, lekin ye log thode se centers collections ko base bana kar reported centers collections prepare karte hai . Ek dum Bakwaas …..

    • Inke acordking agar ek cinems mein 70% hue, to doosre ke collecitons bhi utne hi honge, Is base pe ye log report karte hain. This is total wrong. Boxoffice don’t work like this.

  89. OSO ne 2 cinemas of chandigarh mein 8 lakh ka business kiya, total 4 cinemas mein release hui this OSO chandigarh/panchkula main. BOI ne 2 mein 8 ka business tha to 4 mein 16 lakh bana diya. Lekin sachai ye hain ki baki 2 cinema mein movie ne sirf 3.5 lakh ka business kiya tha .. totoal tha 11.5 lakh. 4.5 Lkh ka ghapla to sirf ek center mein ho gaya …

  90. tarzan,

    u r right,
    after 1st dat,1st weekend n 1st week record breaking,he should come in every channel n give interview.
    even sonakshi,arbaaj n whole dabangg team should come in all tv channels.afterall it made history ever.

    aamir n 3idiots team was promoted superbly after sunday ,thats y weekdays collections r much better thn weekend.media,news/tv channels 24 hours chilla rahi ththi tht 3idiots made 100 crore in 4 days. n thn aamir n team came in all tv channels n share thier experiece.
    they also went to so many cities after tuesday n till 3rd weekend.
    3rd weekend tak every news/tv channel main aamir n team k interviews n thier news thithi.that they r in indore,thn they r going to etc etc.akshay or srk bhi hotey to mauke ka fayda uthatey n 2nd week ka bhi record break karne main jut jaatey.

    bcoz aisa mauka baar-baar nahi aata but salman n dabangg team after sunday poorie tarah se gaayab ho gayi.

    salman dont care about his position,power,breaking record,highest grosser

    but aamir,srk n akshay always care about thier positin n power.

    thts y salman is biggest n real idiot of bollywood.

  91. salman dont care n worry about his position like no.1 n no.2

    but aamir,srk n akshay r very care n worry about thier position.

    this oppotunity of dabangg gave salman tochance for bcoming no.1
    n if he do post promotion from thursday like aamir than dabangg surely equal to 3idiots 2nd week collections

    but he dont care baout no.1 position.

    n this is his biggest idiotness.

  92. after all dabangg made history ever in bollywood

    aisie opportunity baar-baar nahi miltie.

    thats y salman n all dabangg team should come in all tv channels from thursday to sunday atleast.

    srk bhi MNIK k time par thurs to sun aayaa thatha n iska fayda usko boxoffice par 2nd week main mila thatha.

  93. prity yahan bolne se kya hoga tweet to arbaaz uska tweeter id hain

  94. prity thx to support me.dis is chance salman shud cum out nd post promotion which ll help out him for upcumin movies.many ppl think he is time ovr. Prity trurst me there so many evn does nt belive dabangg storey cause lack of publicity. Some of people said dat salman ko zina deow or leave u. Wen u become super star huge respnsibility cum on u.we are fan hv right to tlk abt our star.he is now shootin 4 tmk but if ak on same position he ll nt shoot now..

    • Prity and Tarzan – I agree with you both that Salman should do post promotion but he has never done it. And why the hell is he shooting the music video for TMK. I didn’t want Salman in it in the first place (not this film but any film from now no special appearance, cameo or item song). Salman should be going all out but instead working on something which doesn’t concern him. How many other top stars would do this. Anyway Salman we still love you and have hope that DABANGG will easily surpass GHAJINI.

      Danish – really really enjoy reading your comments.

  95. hey does any1 knw total colection of rajinikanth shivaji.


  96. @Tarzan 128cr

  97. @ Prity and others

    Aamir appeared on TV channels post release, because he didn’t appear at all before the release! In fact, we Aamir fans ourselves were exasperated that why he isn’t promoting the film, why he isn’t on the cover of any magazine and why not on TV at all!! 3 Idiots promotional strategy was too experimental (I mean unlike anything tried before). Even some fans thought that the ARG idea was weird!

    3 Idiots grossed more on weekdays due to excellent WOM, not just due to interviews of the team! In fact, even Aamir fans didn’t have a very good opinion on 3 Idiots promotional activities.

    More than promotion, it is word of mouth that helped.

    I remember initially even Aamir fans disliked the title of the film, wondered about the subject of the film and totally were taken aback by the trailers! The first trailer was not too exciting to say it politely (unlike Ghajini’s trailer which was mindblowing!). The 3rd or 4th trailer with the Give me some sunshine song, was the one which gave some hope that this film will work

    Do you know? Everyone was saying that 3 Idiots would be Aamir’s Waterloo! And that it will ruin Raju Hirani’s reputation as a filmmaker and it’s all about tom-foolery, toilet humour and whatnot.

    It’s music was disliked earlier by Aamir fans themselves! Unlike Dabangg’s which was an instant hit.

    3I music only picked up after people saw the film and the songs in context of the film. From then on, its music was a hit.

    It is unfair to compare 3 Idiots and Dabangg. 3 Idiots, even according to BOI, was expected only to be a city success and was not expected to even be close to Ghajini let alone break it! In case of overseas, no one even expected that it would so such wonders overseas too!

    3 Idiots was like a surprise for audience, fans, and trade analysts. Only its team knew what they’d made. But I guess, even they didn’t expect that the film will shatter all records, both in India and overseas and be loved even in places like China, Korea and Indonesia!

    Dabangg’s pre-release hype, impression on audience was very good and way more positive than 3 Idiots.

    Another thing that everyone is ignoring is that 3 Idiots was an issue-based film and its subject was debatable. It got embroiled in a serious (but baseless) controversy, that it encourages student suicides and students to revolt against parents and teachers. Media was reporting more about 3 Idiots supposedly being responsible for student suicides, instead of reporting about how good the film is and how much records it broke!! I remember how we fans were frustrated that instead of talking about its records, they are hell bent on reporting 24 hours, on the controversies related to it!

    Do you know, many sections of masses stayed away from 3I because they thought it was an English film, due to its title?! An article in Business Standard mentioned that crowds like small town audience, rickshaw-wallahs, taxi-drivers etc., thought 3 Idiots was an English film and they didn’t understand songs like Give me some sunshine and All is well.

    Aamir himself said in his interview to Mint that 3 Idiots title was a mistake and that if it didn’t have an English title it would have done better business.

    People thought 3 Idiots would be a silly film and initially most of its promotion like music release and contests were done online on the Idiots Academy site that too, at in the morning on working days (Mondays etc.), when many Indians coulnd’t even attend the stars’ online chats or appearances!

    You can go to forums like AK.org and see old posts to know how skeptical Aamir fans were, about the promotion of 3 Idiots!

    December one is not always holiday week! We have holidays only on Christmas Day! Other days are working. Colleges have their NCC/NSS annual camps during the last week of December. Many schools have pre-board exams twice – first in December, then in the first week of January.

    You guys keep talking about holidays. December is holiday season only in North American and European countries, not in India!

    I remember during his first live chat on Facebook, before the release of 3 Idiots, many class 10 and class 12 students had complained to Aamir that he shouldn’t release the film now, since they’re either having or are about to have their pre-board exams! You can to Aamir’s older blog posts and see comments from many students who saw the film in the last week of January after their pre-board were over.

    Every Class 10 and Class 12 student would know that test series, both in school and coaching centres begin during December. From December, everyone from parents, teachers, tutors to even classmates start telling you to get all serious about boards and entrance tests preparations.

    It is only after the mega-success of Ghajini and 3 Idiots that ”December or Christmas weekend being the biggest” theory has come up!

    Even college students start to get more serious about covering their syllabus and completing their pending assignments from December onwards. Isn’t it a month of super cold weather, in which one is easily susceptible to sickness? Isn’t it a time when one doesn’t even feel like getting out of their blankets and their cosy homes?!
    Overseas, they have blizzards, storms and snow fall too. Doesn’t it threaten the chances of a film abroad? Once, last year, 3 Idiots collection had dropped on one or two particular days when there was a series of blizzards in many parts of US.

    Now suddenly, everyone from trade to fans of other stars are calling it the most fertile and profitable time to release a film! Ha!

    A film had to be good, that’s what matters. If it is promoted really well, has good stars, and if those stars have performed well, music is good or entertainment/message (whichever is applicable) is good, then it is bound to succeed no matter when it is released (except the universal exam months of March and April!).

    Audience is the biggest star now. No Aamir/SRK/Salman/Amitabh or anyone else. It’s upon them, what they want to see and appreciate.

    Some films like AAA get their due much later from audience. Some like 3I gain success and appreciation instantly and continue to get appreciation for a long time. Some like Dabangg and Ghajini become a craze, due to their entertainment, kickass action and sheer style!

    This Christmas/Diwali/Eid/Summer vacation theory works only in case of opening, and doesn’t make a film ATBB!

    That’s all I want to say. Many congratulations to Salman and his fans for this long-awaited and well-deserved success. But please don’t compare unfairly.

    Everyone knows that box office records, aren’t the only achievement of 3 Idiots. It went way beyond them.

    Sad to see some trade analysts and media sections, creating unfair comparisons and silly so-called games of ”one-upmanship” between stars.

    • nice post

    • Very well said Anu. I echoe your thoughts completely. I was the first to say that comparisons should not be done between both DABANGG and 3I. The latter is a far superior film.

      I remember many Bwood websites were comparing VEER with HOUSEFULL or were comparing 3I with MNIK. Those comparisons are absurd. To compare any film first and foremost both genres of films have to be similar. You can’t compare a period film with a comedy. Just like you can’t compare a action film with a serious drama etc.

      Bwood unfortunately can’t produce many quality films (I still prefer Bwood anyday) but films like 3I are a breath of fresh air. I promise every Amir or 3I fan that here in Eng every1 was talking about the film. Even people who despise and I mean despise Hindi films were praising 3I. So my point is that 3I should never ever have been compared with 3I. It’s not fair on DABANGG. (I’ve been saying this from day 1).

      Just enjoy guys.

    • good post anupama chopra (wife of producer of 3 idiots) LOL

  98. @Anu, thanks for ur generous opinion .

  99. @Gulam Ali , thanks for ur truth information brother. Keep it up brother.

  100. ANU,

    u didnt watch dabangg public opinion.dabangg wom is also excellent.everybody said very-very good abt dabangg.

    u forgot that aamir did different promotion for 3idiots like he changed his looks n went to different places in changed looks.
    this promotional activities gave very publicty to 3idiots.
    kareena also went to saree makers house

    even aamir music launch is very different n gave so much publicity
    after music launch aamir,karrena n 3idiots team gave so many interviews

    there was pressconfrence everyday b4 release
    n at the date of release on 25th december aamir n two actors were live on every channel n did conversation with fans.

    WOM was good but inspite of tht friday,sat n sunday collections r less than dabangg.

    but 4th day all tv/news channels shouted 24 hours that 3idiots made 100 cr in 3 days n tht collection was gross ciollection.
    means 76 was neet but media ware telling gross of 76 crore

    all channels ne hungama macha diya tht 3idiots made 100 crore in3 days
    after that aamir n whole team came in all channels n media asked them tht u breaked record of SHOLAY.
    on mon-tues there was controvercy of chetan anand
    aamir n team did press confrence every day after sunday.
    n than they told to media that they will go so many cities from wednesday.
    from wednesday to 3rd weekend they were tevelling so many cities n did press conference.saara hungama monday se shuru hua by media n chetan anand.

    thats y from mon-tuesday collections are better tahn weekend.
    than aamir n team did post-promotion till 3rd weekend n after first week also aamir came in every channel n gave again interviews n attended fans caals.

    film realease se pehle music launch bahut good n different thatha.
    aamir ka behrupiya bankar so many ciites main jaana bhi so much publicity.
    aamir,kareena n team gave so many interviews to all channels b4 realease

    so aamir n team did pre-promotion excellent n different.at that time srk k chichora kehne se controvercy ho gayi thithi.
    at 25 december they were on every channels

    than from monday chetan-anand controvery created so hype n than

    aamir n team did superb post promotion also.thats y 3idiots weekdays were better than weekend n dabnagg

    dabangg public response n WOM IS EXCELLENT.U CAN SEE THIS ON ANY YOUTUBE.
