Who Are The Biggest Of Them All?

Films which I think worked most are Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, Kapoor & Sons and Shivaay. Considering collections and footfalls, Sultan is the number one film of 2016. The year 2016 is yet to end and we are expecting it to conclude on a high note because of Aamir Khan’s film Dangal. To say that the film will do exceedingly well is an understatement.

The Top 3 films at our cinema were Sultan, MSG (The Messenger of God) and M.S. Dhoni: The Untold Story. Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, according to me, was just average. The collections of Sultan were around Rs. 22.92 lakh, while MSG earned Rs. 42 lakh and clocked 33,600 footfalls. Shivaay was average, at 12,000 footfalls. Lately, there have been many enquiries about Dangal, so I am sure it is going to work.

The Top 3 films that worked at EOS are Sultan, M.S. Dhoni: The Untold Story and Rustom. Sultan collected Rs. 54 lakh and notched up 44,262 footfalls. The collections of M S Dhoni… were Rs. 32 lakh and the footfalls were 28,571. Lastly, Rustom earned Rs. 27 lakh and footfall were 23,879. Upcoming films like Befikre and Dangal have grabbed early attention and this could boost collections.

The first movie to do great business was Sultan, which clocked 4,970 footfalls and collected Rs. 8,28,240. The second film is Shivaay, which earned Rs. 4,56,720 with footfalls at 2,564. In third place is Ghayal Once Again, with collections of Rs. 4,19,070 and 3,126 footfalls.

The best film of this year was Sultan. The film worked because of Salman Khan’s massive fan following and the fact that Khan was playing a raw character. Other films that worked are Airlift and Neerja, which clocked 60-per cent occupancy in cinemas. Airlift and Neerja had good stories, which is why they worked. Now all eyes are on Dangal and Befikre and exhibitors and movie-goers have huge expectations from them.

The Top 3 movies for our group have been Sultan, Shivaay and Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, whise collections were Rs. 1.7 crore, Rs. 1.1 crore and Rs. 1 crore, respectively. Occupancy for these films was 50-60 per cent in the first week, with overall occupancy at just 25 per cent.

Befikre will take a good start due to its good music and the buzz among youngsters. Dangal will be another milestone in Indian box-office history. Demonitisation will impact on the film’s collections only in its initial days; after that, collections will pick up due to the film’s content.

Sultan did great business. Apart from that, Pink, The Jungle Book and the Marathi film Sairat brought in god collections. These films had around 70 to 80-per cent occupancy. Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, Neerja and Airlift have also done good business at the ticket window. Sultan worked because of Salman Khan and people were ready to pay double the price of the ticket. Also, it released during the festive period, which helped. After November 8, collections have plummeted for films like Force 2, Rock On 2 and Tum Bin II, thanks to demonetisation. However, according to me, Dangal will work despite the money crunch since it is an Aamir Khan film and fans won’t miss it.
