JayShah Box Office Column – Housefull Week 2

Posted in Refugee on November 13, 2019 by jayshah

Assumptions

  • Using Film Information data
  • To arrive at current week collections I take previous week and compare with current week to arrive at a weekly % drop
  • I then take my prior week estimate and multiply by the % drop
  • Current week collections = Prior week * % drop (based on like for like centres) * % cinemas drop
  • % cinemas drop is the reported # of cinemas from Film Information – it adds a parameter for size of release for the same film
  • # of Cinemas shouldn’t be confused with screen size as the former is independent variable for a movie whereas latter is something for comparing with other movies – an example is HF4 increased coverage in Ahmedabad from 16 to 31 cinemas whereas most stations remained same as first week with nil changes, some reduced too.
HF4 W1 HF4 W2 Total
Week 1 Like for like centres 853,449,307 331,410,037
# centres ratio
173 39%
# cinemas 721 710
# cinemas ratio 98%
Film Information
Reported Collections 86 33 119
Unreported Collections 49 15 64
Total Collections 134 48 183
Ratio Reported/Unreported 64% 69% 65%
Jayshah Est 128 49 177
Kadel 115 33 148
Jaiswal 115 33 148
BOI 136 49 185
Komal 134 48 183
Bollywood Hungama 129 47 176
Addatoday 141 48 190
Average excluding jayshah 128 43 172
Week 2 est = Cinema Ratio * Collection Ratio * Week 1 Est = 98% * 39% * 128crore

My week 2 estimate for HF4 is 49Cr. This is a solid hold considering 1st week had multiple holidays to give an element of front loading, though this front loading only happened post Day 4 after Diwali Day. Considering this hold of 61% fall week on week the movie has done well in it’s second week.

Total collections are 177Cr which is above the average of all other sources. Once again my numbers are closest to Bollywood Hungama and actually my 2nd week is the highest of all estimated numbers.

The Lost World of Urdu Film Magazines

Posted in Refugee on January 12, 2019 by Qalandar

LINK

“Lahore had a thriving film industry in those days and the likes of Dalsukh Pancholi, A.R. Kardar and Roop K. Shourie were shaping the course of Indian cinema. Urdu was the dominant language of the region and the city quickly became a springboard for the launch of a host of film publications such as Shabistaan, Filmkaar, Tasveer, Star and, of course, Chitra.

However, it was Delhi that went on to produce the major film magazines in the later years, including the one that is unanimously acknowledged as a milestone.”

Happy 2019
