Vidur’s Film Diary – April 2014

MUMBAI – MAHARASHTRA – INDIA           MAY 24, 2014           05.55 P.M.

Since I started writing my blogs, this is the first month when posting a blog, specially the Film Diary, is so delayed. It happened because of the ongoing elections of the 14th Lok Sabha and also because of the stupendous amount of work of my acting institute.

April was absolutely an uneventful month. Only 3 films, ” Main Tera Hero ” , ” 2 States ” and ” Bhootnath Returns “ were declared hits. ” 2 States “ is the latest member of 100 crore club of Hindi films.
As per my latest norm, I share 3 VIDUR CLUB NEWS VIDEOS, which amply illustrate my recent successes :
1 : ” Jai Ho ” :  http://youtu.be/cZzBa4sHXMQ
2 : ” One By Two ” :  http://youtu.be/0WCMfQiPdGI
3 – ” O Teri ” & ” Main Tera Hero ” :

MUMBAI – MAHARASHTRA – INDIA           JANUARY 10, 2014   04.25 P.M.
Month of December 2013 will be remembered for ” Dhoom 3 “ , the highest grosser film of Hindi film industry. It earned 250 crores within 14 days and dashed all previous box office records . It is still going strong as I  write and publish this blog. It’s total domestic collection till date is INR 272.50 crores. ” Dhoom 3 “ has become all-time blockbuster.
” Krrish 3 “ , a Hritik Roshan film , stands second with the All – India net collection of INR 243.24 crore in India and INR 300.00 crore worldwide . ” Chennai Express “ stands third with the collection of INR 226.70 crore.
It is so uncanny that all the Hindi films of 200 crore club have my students working in various fields. Here is the list :
1 – ” 3 Idiots “ [ 200.57 crores ] ………………………….. Kareena Kapoor
2 – ” Chennai Express “ [ 226.56 crores ] …………… Rohit Shetty / Shekhar Ravjiani / Nikitin Dheer

Vidur’s Film Diary – March 2012


MUMBAI – MAHARASHTRA – INDIA           APRIL 16 , 2012           05.00 P.M.

It is 35th edition of my film diary . Next month my film diary will complete 3 uninterrupted years .

I normally post my film diaries on the 1st of every month . This time I was in Manali and there was no network there, so could not post it as per my norm .

Re-producing tweets from the twitter-handle of two eminent trade analysts ; Mr. Taran Adarsh and Mr. Komal Nahta :

#TereNaalLoveHoGaya *India* Fri 1.9 cr, Sat 2.5 cr, Sun 3.4 cr, Mon 1.5 cr, Tue 1.4 cr, Wed 1.2 cr. Total: Rs 11.9 cr nett. Rock-steady!

#TereNaalLoveHoGaya [Week 2] is maintaining very well, despite reduction in screens/shows. Fri 82 lacs. Total: Rs 13.82 cr nett.

Midweek BO: #PaanSinghTomar eclipses all releases, emerges winner! bit.ly/z7dlVX

#TereNaalLoveHoGaya collected Rs 3.77 cr nett, taking 10-day total to Rs 16.77 cr nett. Fri 87 lacs, Sat 1.2 cr, Sun 1.7 cr. Rock-steady!

#JodiBreakers had a drastic fall in Weekend 2. Will entail heavy losses. Flop.

‘Will You Marry Me?’ has had an extremely poor opening weekend. Flop.

Despite reduction in shows on Thu [due to Holi], #PaanSinghTomar and #TNLHG were better/at par with Mon figures. Excellent!

#Kahaani 3rd weekend 5.5 cr. Total so far: Rs 48.55 cr nett. Extra-ordinary!

Overseas: #AgentVinod is a big disappointment http://bit.ly/Haomgv

#AgentVinod has Rs 38.65 cr nett Week 1, below the mark http://bit.ly/tsob

#Kahaani collected Rs 8.5 cr nett in Week 3, taking the 3-week total to Rs 51.55 cr nett. Super Hit.

TERE NAAL LOVE HO GAYA review: bit.ly/w2iTxi – The entertaining 2nd half & hit music save it & make it a plus fare for Tips & UTV.

TERE NAAL LOVE HO GAYA: Rs. 12.5 cr, JODI BREAKERS: Rs. 9 cr, AGNEEPATH crosses Rs. 125 cr. Box-Office wrap: bit.ly/yHvClL

Agent Vinod opens dull at many centres. Given the weak reports, seems headed for losses. Cost too high, collections low in comparison
