This week saw an interesting clash in the form of John Abraham’s SATYAMEVA JAYATE and Akshay Kumar venture, GOLD. Given the box-office reputation, GOLD managed to procure around 3000 screens while SATYAMEVA JAYATE had to be content with about 2500 screens. As far as the first day goes, SATYAMEVA JAYATE netted 20 crore, while GOLD rocked with a 25 crore haul. The big Independence Day holiday boosted the collections of the two films and John and Akshay managed the biggest single day figures of their career. Having said that, given that very few sources were seeing SATYAMEVA JAYATE as a challenger to the much bigger GOLD, it is the T-Series venture that has really surprised as opposed to the Excel Entertainment venture which expected to steam roll the opposition. While it is double celebration for the industry, from here on, content will matter. Here’s wishing for a double blockbuster!

Last Friday was almost an open week with films like, Rohit Shetty Picturez’s Kamal Haasan starrer VISHWAROOP 2 (dubbed), Sachin Gupta’s PAKHI, 1308 Motion Pictures’ LASHTAM PASHTAM and Aditya Roshan Film Production’s UNMAAD etc., all of which failed to make much of an impact. For the stat conscious, the front runner was obviously Kamal Haasan’s VISHWAROOP 2, though the collections were nothing to write home about!

Despite the best opening day, T-Series’ Anil, Aishwarya and Rajkummar Rao venture FANNEY KHAN saw rejection from the second day onwards as the film collected 1.50 crore from Bombay (collections from cinemas unreceived), 25 lakhs from Ahmedabad, 8 lakhs from Surat, 5.50 lakhs from Baroda, 2.50 lakhs from Rajkot, 25 lakhs from Pune, 3.25 lakhs from Nasik, 5.50 lakhs from Goa, 1.25 crore from Delhi city, 30 lakhs from Noida, 20.50 lakhs from Ghaziabad, 10 lakhs from Kanpur, 25 lakhs from Lucknow, 8.50 lakhs from Agra, 4.75 lakhs from Allahabad, 2 lakhs from Aligarh, 7.50 lakhs from Dehradun, 25 lakhs from Gurgaon, 10 lakhs from Faridabad, 1.25 lakhs from Kurukshetra, 1.25 lakhs from Panipat, 7 lakhs from Chandigarh, 3.25 lakhs from Jalandhar, 3.15 lakhs from Amritsar,5.25 lakhs from Ludhiana, 1.75 lakhs from Jammu, 35 lakhs from Calcutta, 4 lakhs from Siliguri, 4.25 lakhs from Patna, 1.75 lakhs from Dhanbad, 3.50 lakhs from Ranchi, 2.75 lakhs from Bhubaneshwar, 4.25 lakhs from Guwahati, 1.50 lakhs from Muzaffarpur, 5 lakhs from Nagpur, 8 lakhs from Raipur, 15 lakhs from Indore, 4 lakhs from Gwalior, 10 lakhs from Bhopal(collections from 2 cinemas unrecieved), 20 lakhs from Jaipur (collections from 4 cinemas unrecieved), 3.50 lakhs from Jodhpur, 1.25 lakhs from Ajmer, 3 lakhs from Kota, 3 lakhs from Udaipur, 20 lakhs from Hyderabad, 3 lakhs from Aurangabad, 40 lakhs from Bangalore, 2.50 lakhs from Mangalore, 1.50 lakhs from Mysore, 1.75 lakhs from Visakhapatnam and 1.50 lakhs from Madras.
