    Now the need is to also ensure that this second week of January is also filled up with a good release as it may not have a huge national holiday but it is a good period of 2-3 days and more depending on when the weekend falls. There is Makar Sankrati, Lohri, Oman and Pongal falling in this week, the latter may mean competition from South films in South but last year Uri – The Surgical Strike had strong figures in South despite the competition and then went on to do close to record numbers for a Hindi film in South despite strong local films.

  2. Tanhaji is very stable even today , set for 11-12 cr. With 119-120 cr first week, it has almost doubled its weekend collection. Good newzz also doubled its weekend though helped by holiday period. Here, it was minor holiday in parts and weekday ticket rates.

    • So far this has trended better than Good Newwz if we do not consider holidays.

      It has also out grossed a similar genre movie Kesari by a distance and with a competition + only 7 day week. Clearly Kesari underperformed then despite being a hit due to its lower cost. It lost an opportunity to do atleast 30 Cr nett more.

      Week 1 of Kesari (BOI)- 8 days

      Thursday – 21,00,00,000 apprx (partial holiday)
      Friday – 17,00,00,000 apprx

  3. Tanhaji – The Unsung Hero has had a fantastic hold on Thursday collecting in th 11-12 crore nett range. The holiday factor is over in most places, it may be there in a few centres in the Hindi belt but that will hardly add 2-3%. The film has dropped 30% from Wednesday but there were whole states having the holiday affect on Wednesday unlike a few centers on Thursday.

    The film is just 20% down from the first day and that tells how strong the film is as you would pray for a 20% drop on Monday and here the film is just 20% down on Thursday. It was the crucial day on Thursday and the film has come through with flying colours.

    The first week numbers of the film are the 116 crore nett and it will be the second Friday which will tell where the film will go. There will be a drop of screens which is natural after week one but the ticket rates at multiplexes will go back up and if Maharashtra maintains this pace where it has hardly dropped on day seven from the first day then it will be huge 8th day for the film. Despite these huge numbers it has not actually done that well Delhi NCR, East Punjab and West Bengal but this shows how huge Maharashtra is and Mumbai circuit will probably compete with the biggest films of all time outside Bahubali – The Conclusion.

    Chhapaak crashed on Thursday with collections down 40% on Thursday to 1.25-1.50 crore nett. This basically gives the film no chance as another drop will be coming on Friday. The first week numbers will hardly be 26 crore nett and the 35 crore lifetime figure is looking tough the reach and the competition Tanhaji – The Unsung Hero covered this much in just 2 days.

  5. Top 10 stars (Current) – Ajay Devgn cements his position in top 5

    No 1 Akshay Kumar – Had a historic 2019 after a fabulous 2016-2018. All eyes on his next.

    No 2 Salman Khan – His films are still getting bumper openings. He just need to get that one superhit.

    No 3 Hrithik Roshan – Had a career changing year in 2019. From No where in 2018 to Top 3 by end of 2019. Needs to do a quickie and get a release in 2020.

    No 4 Ajay Devgn – Superhit success of Tanhaji + fantastic run since last few years

    No 5 Ranveer Singh – He has slipped two positions since last 6 months due to zero release and competition doing better.

    No 6 – Ayushmann Khurana – The hit machine. He is all set to enter top 5 in 2020 if all goes as good as 2018-19 for him. He is now a star.

    No 7 Tiger Shroff – His lineup in 2019 includes Baaghi 3 which can be his War of 2020.

    No 8 Aamir Khan – The Santa will return this Christmas. Enough of 300 Cr targets.

    No 9 Ranbir Kapoor – No one now remembers when Sanju released. He is in hibernation. Potentially a huge star like Aamir Khan.

    No 10

    John Abraham – He is steady. Needs some miracle to enter Top 5 Varun Dhawan – Kalank tanked. Can he rise with next week’s release?

  6. Tanahji – The Unsung Hero has had a a very good first week of 116 crore nett and saw fantastic holds over the weekdays. The weeeknd business was good but it really took of over the weekdays with the help of the holiday period.

    The crucial Thursday when most of the holiday period is over held up very collecting over 11 crore nett. This is the highest collection ever for an Ajay Devgn film for a Thursday. The film has a chance of going anywhere the way it has held over the weekdays and even 200 crore nett cant be ruled out if Mumbai circuit keeps at this pace.

    The could challenge the likes of Dangal and Sanju in Mumbai and if it does fall short it is still likely to beat the numbers of Sultan and Bajrangi Bhaijaan. The film has not done well everywhere as a lot of circuits do have low numbers like West Bengal is hardly 3.50 crore nett and East Punjab is below 7 crore nett. Delhi / UP is just 18 crore nett and this is when Mumbai has easily crossed 50 crore nett

    The target for the film is probably to cross the numbers of Bajirao Mastaani as that film was also a Mumbai BLOCKBUSTER while other circuits did less. Tanhaji – The Unsung Warrior is also a very similar film to Bajirao Mastaani. The collections of Tanhaji – The Unsung Hero are as follows.

    Friday – 14,50,00,000 apprx

    Saturday – 19,75,00,000 apprx

  7. Sad to see film on very important and urgent issue meeting such fate just coz of greed of Deepika.

    Chhapaak is a big FLOP as it grossed under 26 crore nett in the first week. The film was doing poor business and it CRASHED on Thursday when the holiday factor went out of the equation. There are not many major films that lose money today due to revenue from satellite and television but Chhapaak will be one of those rare losers

    The failure of the film is being blamed on the controversy around Deepika Padukone visits to a college in Delhi which got bad publicity and an image of a bad PR exercise but it has not failed due to that but because of the content. The film only needed 40-50 lakh footfalls to be a success or even a hit and a controversy cant stop a film getting that much footfalla if the film is genuinely good. Maybe if you needed 1 crore or more footfalls then the controversy could have been an issue. The rejection is across the board with even the high end multiplexes in metros having poor collections. Its so bad that the second Friday could be lower than the fourth Friday of a holdover release like Good Newwz. The collections of Chhapaak till date are as follows.

    Friday – 4,50,00,000 apprx

    Saturday – 6,50,00,000 apprx

    Sunday – 7,00,00,000 apprx

    Monday – 2,00,00,000 apprx

  8. While the Rajkumar Hirani film has reportedly been greenlit by SRK, there is little else that seems like a sure thing. Now, however, one has learnt that SRK and Yash Raj Films could announce a project together very soon. The studio, which was founded by Yash Chopra in 1970, is celebrating its 50th year in 2020 and is expected to announce a clutch of A-list productions. One among these is likely to star Shah Rukh Khan.

    According to the grapevine, it may not be Dhoom 4, the title most fans were expecting the studio to announce with SRK, but an action movie nonetheless. Word going around the corridors of YRF is that Bang Bang! and War director Siddharth Anand could be the lucky man to land the gig. After the massive success of his recent Hrithik Roshan-Tiger Shroff actioner, boss man Aditya Chopra is believed to have entrusted Siddharth with the Shah Rukh-starrer, which is expected to be a slick globetrotting action adventure.

It needs to be denounced ANY which side one belongs. I am against her principally– especially she being the person who celebrated her birthday by having a cake designed as a slum and cutting it to show-case her social work.

      But she’s a great artist; she’s a great actor, above all, someone who, somewhere, for some all the time, for some in fleeting moments, let us appreciate the beautiful form of cinema.

      I hope she recovers well; and may God be with her in this recovery.

  21. Tanahji – The Unsung Warrior saw huge growth on saturday of around 60% as it collected 15.50 crore nett which takes it business to 141 crore nett in nine days. This Satuday growth means it is crusing to the 200 crore nett mark and the biggest NETT grosser of Ajay Devgn.

    The film continues its insane run in Maharashtra and is going to be the second highest grossing film in the state after Bahubali – The Conclusion and will beat the local Marathi film Sairat. The film is creating history in Mumbai circuit and is also heading to be the highest NETT grosser ever in the circuit after Bahubali – The Conclusion and this is despite Gujarat / Saurashtra not being huge.

    Its a totally different story in the North and East where in Delhi / UP, East Punjab and West Bengal it will not even be in the top 50 films of all time. Its unlikely there has been such a lopsided major Hindi grosser in history where the verdicts in different circuits range from ALL TIME BLOCKBUSTER (Mumbai) to FLOP (West Bengal).

          4.He says he would never sign and join India, come what may. He would continue to serve Pakistan and Islam!

          In other words, Saif Ali Khan’s family tried everything in their power to merge Bhopal in Pakistan.

          But as Bhopal was in the center of India, neither Jinnah nor Nawab had military means to resist India.

          Had Bhopal been a frontier kingdom, it would have been a part of Pakistan!

  23. 21 cr today !!

    Tanhaji – The Unsung Warrior had a huge second Sunday collecting around 21 crore nett which is a 35% jump from Saturday. It takes the second weekend to a huge 46 crore nett with strong growth on Saturday and Sunday. The collections in Maharashtra and Gujarat were extraordinary on Sunday.

    Maharashtra is seeing collections that have never been see outside Bahubali – The Conclusion. A city like Nasik is already at 2.50 crore. Its the same story in Sholapur, Kohlapur, Aurangabad, Latur etc as all records for outright Hindi films. A metro like Pune will reach 20 crore nett in a couple of days and that is from just 40 odd cinemas.

    Basically the collections in just Pune alone will be more than the all India collections of the competition Chhapaak over the second weekend. Not only that it could be the lifetime figures in Pune could more than the Chhapak all India lifetime numbers.

    This takes the film to 200 crore nett and it is certain to be the 19th Hindi film to cross 200 crore nett and the second for Ajay Devgn. It is also certain to be the highest grosser of Ajay Devgn though footfalls look like remaining below Golmaal Again.

They knew it via previous movies etc. For the rest it was new and likeable. But to get a trending like Tanhaji, one need to love it. Seems the ‘trying to please mostly Maratha’ politics of Tanhaji touched the cord more than the ‘trying to please all’ politics of Kesari.

          • Please all? Kesari was an editing disaster which dragged the entire movie down to near mediocre levels, somewhat saved by its wonderful cinematography. Kesari was exactly about Sikh pride as Tanhaji is about maratha pride with historical facts that were completely distorted unlike Tanaji. If only the screenplay would have been less snoozeworthy & lackluster it might perhaps have performed better. Yet i can easily vouch no period drama in Hindi cinema comes anywhere close to Tanhaji in the last 20 years. Its the kind of movie that puts Bhansali’s silly Bajirao loverboy Mastani to shame.

ToH was an opportunity lost, especially for Aamir.

  27. Tanhaji- The Unsung Warrior is heading for a huge second week which will be among the top second weeks of all time. It will be up there among the 300 crore nett films with Mumbai circuit beating them all barring Bahubali – The Conclusion.

    The second Monday has collected around 8 crore nett as per early estimates which is just a 20% drop from teh Friday. This takes the total collection to 170 crore nett plus and it will cross the business of films like Mission Mangal, Good Newwz and Bharat in no time. The former may well be by the end of the second week.

    The second week seems to be heading for the 75 crore nett mark which was hit by only Kabir Singh last year and Sanju the year before and the drop of just 33% has probably never been seen by such a wide release. The film could beat the numbers of Uri – The Surgical released same time last year, the trend may not be as strong as Uri – The Surgical strike as that film had phenomenal trending but the numbers till date are far higher than Uri – The Surgical Strike.
