By Abid, Glamsham Editorial

This week will witness about half-a-dozen or so releases, the prominent ones being Krishna DK’s Sidharth Malhotra and Jacqueline Fernandez starrer A GENTLEMAN, Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Bidita Bag venture BABUMOSHAI BANDOOKBAAZ, Yash Raj Films’ QAIDI BAND,  Rajat Nagpal directed MUSKURAHATEIN, Amole Gupte’s SNIFF!!! and AD 18 Motion Pictures’ TO PHIR AAO NA among others. Let us say the obvious and off repeated, too many releases on the same day will.... but the fight for top honours will be between A GENTLEMAN and BABUMOSHAI BANDOOKBAAZ.



Meanwhile, last week’s sweet little release, the Rajkummar Rao, Ayushmaan Khurrana and Kriti Sanon starrer BAREILLY KI BARFI, which saw a somber opening day (2.50 crore), witnessed escalating collections as the days progressed, ending the opening weekend netting 11.50 crore from India. The film has also seen quite steady weekdays and is likely to end the first week with a creditable 19-20 crore haul. Given the all-inclusive 20 crore cost, 75 percent of which has already been recovered through satellite, audio and overseas rights, the film has just a balance of 5 crore which it has already covered up and is sure to end up with at least an above average status.

BAREILLY KI BARFI, has also done very well in the overseas (given the cost and cast) grossing $0.8m with £50,000 from UK and $190,000 from the US, during the opening weekend (18-20 August).
The other release of the week, Gurinder Chadha’s PARTITION: 1947 (dubbed) has failed at the box-office. In fact it is the Hollywood venture, ANNABELLA: THE CREATION which has surprised with its inspired run and it a sure shot hit.


Moving on, Neeraj Pandey’s Akshay Kumar and Bhumi Pednekar starrer TOILET- EK PREM KATHA, saw a great opening week (aided to some extent by holidays and  tax fee status in many states), collecting 11.65 crore from Bombay (collections from other cinemas unrecieved), 2.50 crore from Ahmedabad,  1.25 crore from Surat,  75 lakhs from Baroda, 57.15 lakhs from Rajkot,  3.15 crore from Pune,  41.15 lakhs from Nasik, 50 lakhs from Goa, 10.25 lakhs from Belgaum, 8.55 crore from Delhi city,  2.50 crore from Noida, 2 crore from Ghaziabad,  90 lakhs from Kanpur, 2 crore from Lucknow ,  70 lakhs from Agra, 36.75 lakhs from Allahabad, 12.25 lakhs from Aligarh, 71.50 lakhs from Dehradun,  2.15 crore from Gurgaon,  1.15 crore from Faridabad, 10.25 lakhs from Kurukshetra, 18.25 lakhs from Panipat, 65 lakhs from Chandigarh, 35.25 lakhs from Jalandhar, 15 lakhs from Patiala, 30 lakhs from Amritsar, 53.50 lakhs from Ludhiana, 11.55 lakhs from Bhatinda, 7 lakhs from Ambala,  3.15 lakhs from Shimla, 4.25 lakhs from Jammu,  2.55 crore from Calcutta, 30.15 lakhs from Siliguri, 50 lakhs from Patna, 16.75lakhs from Dhanbad, 45 lakhs from Ranchi, 27.55 lakhs from Bhubaneshwar, 17.85 lakhs from Guwahati, 80 lakhs from Nagpur, 75 lakhs from Raipur, 1.50 crore from Indore, 30 lakhs from Gwalior (collections from 3 cinemas unreceived),  90 lakhs  from Bhopal (collections from 5 cinemas unrecieved),  2.15 crore  from Jaipur (collections from 2 cinemas unrecieved),  36.50 lakhs from Jodhpur ,   22.15 lakhs from Ajmer, 8.50 lakhs from Bikaner, 42.50 lakhs from Kota,  35.75 lakhs from Udaipur,  1.50 crore from Hyderabad, 41 lakhs from Aurangabad,  2.75 crore from Bangalore, 17.15 lakhs from Mangalore,  15 lakhs from Mysore, 5.15 lakhs from Vijayawada,  10.55 lakhs from Visakhapatnam, 14.25 lakhs from Madras and  12.50 lakhs from Kochi.
