Qureshi why you always missed RNBDJ which has trended supremely well and it was blockbuster. Dilwale's third weekend 11 cr is more than of prdp and kick, HNY despite havling clash with successful movie BM still it remain well below of them. It's prove how Xmas period help to better trending If movie don't get 90-100 cr in 1st weekend then it is difficult for (average to bad) wom movie to score reasonable numbers. I am not proving dilwale has trended better but let you know how solo release on festival period help movie to get big numbers. Dhoom3, kick, prdp, would have done similar (more or less but not by far) if they clashed with another movie like BM. It's only his fan has not trended well. Bad luck with srk is that his potential big grosser like dilwale, ce, jthj and now Raees hsnt get solo release and movie like fan dz got solo release which could have done similar even with clash.

^ Well, Salman scores higher for me because he is able to do these high grossers more often and with what the elite dismiss as substandard stuff. That is true stardom.
Both 300 crore movies of Salman have got excellent to good ratings. BB had excellent response even from the elites and Sultan also had very good ratings. Without a film being accepted by everyone it can't do 300 crore regardless of the star. Salman has a bigger weekend pull but Aamir has a better weekdays pull IMO.
Imtiaz Ali is an urban multiplex director. Last of all people who could make ac universally appealing film.
Don't agree. If a love story is good it will have universal appeal. Look at La La Land, even people who don't watch musicals loved it. Imtiaz Ali is a good director and SRK is the face of romance in bollywood. If it's a good story it can work big time.
Then I guess, directors, scriptwriters, actresses and every one else is just useless in film business. Only the Star matters. Good to know. Hirani's movies were all about Sanjay Dutt's and Amir's star power. Hirani is a fluke.
And less say about Hollywood is better. Dory is the biggest star here.
I think we are deviating from the thread topic and put things back into prospective this was more about Clashes and prospective winners. SRK's Ring is releasing solo as of now Crack seems to have delayed. Akshay's 2.0 rather Ranjikanth's 2.0 will get a Solo release this Diwali Golmaal has backed out Big and the most interesting thing left is to see whether Hirani and Ranbir's Dutt Biopic Clashes with Tiger Zinda Hai .... I seriously doubt this is just to create hype around Dutt Biopic movie finally it will release a week or 2 earlier ... But if it happens this Clash will be a fun watch .... Big question will Hirani dare to clash with Salman ?

Raees has started much better than Kaabil.. But this was expected. We need the film to carry average to good WOM and the box office will take care of itself.
As far as reviews are concerned, Kaabil has an edge over Raees... I kind of expected this too.
Raees opening - 55%- 60% range Kaabil opening - 25%-30% range
Eagerly awaiting the first day figures but I expect Raees to do around 18-20 crores with the capacity it has and Kaabil to do around 10-11 crores.. the gap will narrow down during evening and night shows.
There's no way this one is crashing like Dilwale or HNY did.
I loved it. SRK-Nawaz were so good and it was funny. I wasnt expecting humour lol! Had a great time watching this. I didnt mind the songs either. They were all well placed and werent too long either. Nawaz is fantastic. Zeeshan, Mahirah was also very good! Its a shame we didnt get to see her promote this with SRK.
And Shah Ruukh! WTF! Its crazy how hot he looks in that kajal and patani. Loved everything about him

Adda today reports that Raees is 90% occupancy for most of the day and can go towards 25-26 crores. VS Kaabil has 80% occupancy and can go towards 15-16 crores.
Together this might become the highest single day record.
Also the word of mouth meter from them is 7.8 for Kaabil and 7.5 for Raees. We have to think that many SRK haters just spread negative WOM even if they dont watch the movie. In effect WOM is same for both movies.
There is a chance that both movies will succeed.. Friday will start giving indicators as to who ia slowing dowm more and Monday will reveal more..
I haven't found Adda to be a reliable site. They are just like boxofficecapsule
They are not reliable like BoxofficeIndia (Trade figures) or Bollywood Hungama(prod figures), but they give early indication of trend..Much earlier than the more reliable sites who wait for more data. I find addatoday within 10-20% error from final numbers so just check them out to guess the figures before actuals come in next day.

Papa Roshan has used his calculator again. Bollywood hungama reports Kaabil Second day at 18.67 Crores.
Lets see what Raees producers declare.
BOI reports 26.25 crores bringing total to 46.5 crores in 2 days.
3rd day opening-
As per addatoday Kaabil has started with 25% in the morning shows and Raees at 30%... This means that Raees will still lead Friday as it has more percentages on higher screens.. Raees just needs to stay ahead not to lose screens during the second week or weekdays.

So the extended weekend clash between Raees and Kaabil was easily won by Raees.. No matter what happens from here the gap is too big for Kaabil to overtake Raees even with Manipulation in figures.
other than the clash that happens at the box office I am amused by the obsession fans have at box office numbers these days.. There is much greater segregation between groups of fans. Every actor has his dedicated group of fans that seem to be fighting with every other group depending on the occasion. People change sides and opinion depending on convenience and fight like kids on social media and comment section of box office sites...
Things are so bad that some groups purposefully avoid movies they will otherwise enjoy watching and this trend is damaging to business to certain extent.. The hate mongers have increased as well. These fan wars always existed but have grown with growth in social media...SRK is one of the biggest targets of hate from several groups..
I am a numbers guy but some of these kids are way too crazy
