Tweets

Tweets of eminent trade analysts Mr. Komal Nahta and Mr. Taran Adarsh , which I re-tweet , present the current and authentic trend of film industry :

#Himmatwala day 1 net collections 10.5 cr. Considering super wide release & good Friday holiday, collections are below the mark.

Komal Nahta Komal Nahta @KomalNahta31 Mar

#Himmatwala collections drop badly. Day 2: Rs. 7.5 crore only. Total: Rs. 18 crore only. Sunday collections below d mark..

Expected loss in HIMMATWALA: Rs. 20 crore at least. May be more!

  2. #MereDadKiMaruti [3rd Week]: 1.05 cr to 1.10 cr. Grand total: approx Rs. 12.20 cr to 12.25 cr.

  3. #ChashmeBaddoor is off to a super start in India. North India and Mumbai circuits leading. Even mass-dominated belt very good!

  4. #ChashmeBaddoor *early estimates* should cross 5.5 cr. May even touch 6 cr. Data still pouring in. Super start!

        #Shree movie review: Has a fascinating premise, but the erratic writing plays the spoilsport! http://www.bollywoodhungama.com/moviemicro/criticreview/id/590335 …

        1. One of those rare Fridays when two new releases have notched solid numbers. Good films can co-exist, #Aashiqui2 and #IronMan3 prove it!

        2. #IronMan3 is on a record-smashing spree. Numbers being compiled, but it’s a stupendous start. Biggest Hollywood opener? Let’s wait!

        3. #Aashiqui2 has had a fantastic start. Though numbers still being compiled, it’s one of the biggest starts for a film starring newcomers!
