Vidur’s Film Diary – December 2013


2
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
3 – ” Krrish 3 “ [ 244.60 crores ] ………………………… Hritik Roshan / Priyanka Chopra / Vivek Oberoi
4 – ” Dhoom 3 “ [ 272.50 crores & still counting ] ……… Uday Chopra / Katrina Kaif / Ashish Singh
[ My 10 students in all the 04 films of 200 crore club ]

MUMBAI – MAHARASHTRA – INDIA           SEPTEMBER 22, 2013           10.00 P.M.

I wrote 1st blog about ” TIMES CELEBEX ” in October 2012 . TIMES CELEBEX is the first ever ranking index of Hindi film stars done by Times of India and is powered by Zoom .

Numerically this time success ratio is 10 % less than the past year but this time list is bigger and all – inclusive also .

And when I mention Acting Institutes , I don’t include Shri Roshan Taneja . He is like Dilip Kumar , beyond the list . And I don’t include Assha Chandra ji also .

My 23 – year – long journey as an acting trainer seems to be fruitful and satisfactory . I am proud of my students . I am proud that they are working in their chosen field . They don’t have to become a broker to help me in my voyage . I don’t encourage my students to roam around in the lanes and pimp around in search of new clients to further my business .

And thank God ! I don’t have the ignominy of becoming a door-mat of my student , so that I can also revel in revelries of the film industry .

Vidur’s Film Diary – July 2013


2.jpg
MUMBAI – MAHARASHTRA – INDIA           AUGUST  11, 2013          11.20 P.M.
Month of July 2013 will always be associated with  ” Bhaag Milkha Bhaag ” . The film got rave reviews and was a winner at the box office too .
A new face , Girish Kumar , also came into limelight this month with  ” Ramaiya Vastavaiya ” . This scion of Tips , made his debut with the film . He was praised for his acting skills and the film did decent business at the box office .

Tweets :

 

Tweets of eminent trade analysts Mr. Taran Adarsh and Mr. Komal Nahta , which I re-tweet , present the current and authentic trend of film industry :
  1. #BhaagMilkhaBhaag is fast racing towards the 100 crore mark. Overall, Super Hit [Blockbuster in North circuits]

     

    1. RAMAIYA 1st week actual net collections: Rs. 22.2 crore. D-DAY 1st week figure: Rs. 15.75 crore. BMB reaches Rs. 82 crore in 2 weeks. Wow!

    2. LUV U SONIYO fails to get the audience’s love or attention. Read my review of the film, starring two new faces, at http://komalsreviews.wordpress.com/2013/07/26/luv-u-soniyo-review/ …

    3. ISSAQ is too boring to make people fall in love with it! Read my review of the Prateik-Amyra starrer at http://komalsreviews.wordpress.com/2013/07/26/issaq-review/ …

    4. All releases of today open to dull houses. Shows of some films cancelled at some centres due to absence of audience!

    5. BAJATEY RAHO, a comedy thriller, is a dull fare, devoid of good comedy and exciting thrills. Read my review at http://komalsreviews.wordpress.com/2013/07/26/bajatey-raho-review/ …

Vidur’s Film Diary – May 2013

MUMBAI – MAHARASHTRA – INDIA           JUNE  07, 2013          08.30 P.M.
Our Success Ratio in MAY , 2013
175 %
[ 15 ACTORS / 01 Director / 01 E.P. / 01 Music Director
Working in 11 RELEASED FILMS  ]
Month of May 2013 is important for Indian cinema . On May , 1913 first full-length feature filmRaja Harishchandra was released in Coronation Cinema , Girgaon , Mumbai [ then Bombay ] . India cinema celebrates its 100 years of existence this month .
It is sad that in the year when Indian cinema is celebrating its 100th years , world of Indian films lost 5 luminaries in this month .
It was not a very significant month either for Hindi films as for as box office collections are concerned . Out of all 11 released films , only ” Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani “ hits the bull’s-eye . ” Shootout At Wadala ” , ” Go Goa Goneand ” Aurangzeb “ were average hits . Rest 07 were flops .

Tweets

Tweets of eminent trade analysts Mr. Komal Nahta , Mr. Taran Adarsh , which I re-tweet , present the current and authentic trend of film industry :
  1. SHOOTOUT AT WADALA opening in single-screens good, picked up very well in later shows.Opening in many multiplexes below the mark.

  2. SAW has lots for masses in Mahrshtra (mainly)but little for women,families & classes.Not universal.Read my review at http://komalsreviews.wordpress.com/2013/05/03/shootout-at-wadala-review/ …

  3. BOMBAY TALKIES is well-intentioned but with bleak chances at the b.o. Read my review at http://komalsreviews.wordpress.com/2013/05/03/bombay-talkies-review/ …

    1. #GoGoaGone collected Rs. 4.25 cr on Sat & Rs. 3.75 cr on Fri (approx). Total around Rs. 8 cr for two days….

    2. GIPPI is a non-starter. It has opened dull and is not likely to pick up. Read my review at http://komalsreviews.wordpress.com/2013/05/10/gippi-review/

    3. GoGoaGONE is entertaining for a section of the public only.But that may not be enough to sail safe.Read my review at http://komalsreviews.wordpress.com/2013/05/10/go-goa-gone/ …

    1. Aditya Roy Kapur shines in YJHD. Kalki Koechlin springs the biggest surprise. Pritam no less a hero of the film.

    2. Ranbir stakes claim to be called superstar after the flying start of YJHD and his extraordinary performance. Deepika is mind-blowing.

    3. Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani is a highly entertaining film which will set the b.o. on fire. Read my review at http://komalsreviews.wordpress.com/2013/05/31/yeh-jawaani-hai-deewani-review/ …

    1. #BombayTalkies Friday *early estimates* 1.25 cr to 1.5 cr.

    2. #ShootoutAtWadala opens at No 11 position in UK. Despite 18 certificate by British censors. That says it all!

    3. Surprise! Surprise!! Overseas biz pouring in and for a film that’s got an 18 cert, the opening day biz of #ShootoutAtWadala is very good!

    4. #ShootoutAtWadala Fri 10.1 cr… Amongst the top openers of the year!

    5. #Gippi is straight from the heart. Brings back childhood memories. Sweet, simple, emotionally engaging, heart-warming cinema.

  1. As per *early estimates* #ShootoutAtWadala crosses Rs 45 cr mark in Week 1. Excellent!

 

  1. #Gippi Fri 75 lacs, Sat 1 cr, Sun 1.25 cr, Mon 40 lacs. Total: 3.40 cr.

  2. #ShootoutAtWadala [2nd Week] Fri 2.02 cr, Sat 2.33 cr, Sun 2.57 cr, Mon 1.20 cr. Grand total: 53.94 cr.

  3. #GoGoaGone Fri 3.75 cr, Sat 4.25 cr, Sun 4.90 cr, Mon 2.05 cr. Total: 14.95 cr.

  1. In Overseas, Ranbir Kapoor is right next to the 3 Khans: SRK, Salman, Aamir. #Barfi and now #YehJawaaniHaiDeewani have cemented his status!

  2. #YehJawaaniHaiDeewani UAE *revised* Thu AED 900,000 … #Barfi Thu was AED 600,000 and #Rockstar Thu was AED 500,000.

  3. #YehJawaaniHaiDeewani *initial trends* suggest 18 cr Friday. Humungous opening!

  4. #YehJawaaniHaiDeewani takes a Blockbuster start in UAE. Thu AED 800,000. #Barfi Thu was AED 450,000.

  5. #Aurangzeb 2nd Week: 4.16 cr. Grand Total: 23.85 cr.

  6. As per trends, #YehJawaaniHaiDeewani should be Ranbir Kapoor’s biggest opener – Day 1, opening weekend and Week 1.

The 100 Crore Club of Hindi Films


MUMBAI – MAHARASHTRA – INDIA           OCTOBER 06, 2012           01.40 A.M.

All the Acting Trainers of Mumbai want successful students . Its natural . Some Acting Trainers of India even make false claims about their student actors to show the world that they are very successful . Its deceit . Almost all Bollywood Acting Trainers have lists of their students , who are now very much successful in Hindi film industry . Some are genuine , some are fake .

In fact all the Film Institutes of Mumbai dish out list of their students , whose films are there in the 100 Crore Club . In olden days Silver Jubilee , Golden Jubilee and Diamond Jubilee used to be the hallmark of a successful films . But now 100 Crore earning films are considered successful .

Till date only 15 films have earned 100 Crore or more . I am reproducing the list of films of all the 15 films of 100 Crore Club from Wikipedia .

The Bollywood 100 Crore Club
Year Film No. of Days Net Gross
2008 Ghajini 18 INR115 crore (US$21.74 million)
2009 3 Idiots 9 INR202 crore (US$38.18 million)
2010 Dabangg 10 INR140 crore (US$26.46 million)
2010 Golmaal 3 17 INR108 crore (US$20.41 million)
2011 Ready 14 INR121 crore (US$22.87 million)
2011 Singham 37 INR100 crore (US$18.9 million)
2011 Bodyguard 7 INR141 crore (US$26.65 million)
2011 Ra.One 11 INR115 crore (US$21.74 million)
2011 Don 2 16 INR115 crore (US$21.74 million)
2012 Agneepath 11 INR120 crore (US$22.68 million)
2012 Housefull 2 17 INR112 crore (US$21.17 million)
2012 Rowdy Rathore 10 INR131.56 crore (US$24.86 million)
2012 Bol Bachchan 20 INR106 crore (US$20.03 million)
2012 Ek Tha Tiger 6 INR186 crore (US$35.15 million)
2012 Barfi! 19 INR100 crore (US$18.9 million)

Out of these 15 films , there are 10 films which have my students are protagonists [ male and female both ] and antagonists . When I go through the list , I feel satisfied that as an Acting Trainer , I have 18 students of mine whose films are there in the 100 Crore Club . I am not blowing my own trumpet but no Bollywood Acting Trainer has such a long list .

I am giving the name of the artistes , who are my students  :

1 – KAREENA KAPOOR  : “3 Idiots”, “Golmaal 3”, “Bodyguard”, “Ra.One”

2 – PRIYANKA CHOPRA : “Don 2” , “Agneepath” & “Barfi”

3 – ARBAAZ KHAN : ” Dabangg “

4 – SONU SOOD : ” Dabangg “

5 – HAZEL KEECH : ” Bodyguard “

6 – ARJUN RAMPAL : ” Ra.One “

7 – KUNAL KAPOOR : ” Don 2 “

8 – HRITIK ROSHAN : ” Agneepath “

9 – SAJID KHAN : ” Housefull 2 ” [ As Director ]

10 – JACQUELINE FERNANDEZ : ” Housefull 2 “

11 – SHAZAHN PADAMSEE : ” Housefull 2 “

12 – KATRINA KAIF : ” Ek Tha Tiger “

13 – RANBIR KAPOOR : ” Barfi “

Out of these 13 students , Kareena Kapoor tops the list with 4 films . She is followed by Priyanka Chopra with 3 films . Rest 11 have 1 film each in their kitty. Out of these 13 students , 12 are actors and 1 Sajid Khan is the director of ” Housefull 2 ” .

Kareena Kapoor was the first to enter in this illustrious club and Ranbir Kapoor is the latest . Both are my student and they both belong to Kapoor family , the first family of Hindi Film industry .

As an Acting Trainer of Bollywood , who runs a Famous Acting Class in Mumbai , known as Vidur’s Kreating Charakters , it is a very satisfying journey indeed .

Any Acting Trainer of India can do anything to have such a list .

Vidur’s Film Diary – June 2012


MUMBAI – MAHARASHTRA – INDIA           JULY 01 , 2012           01.00 A.M.

First half of 2012 is over . There are few sterling successes and some significant emerging new trends in the Hindi film industry . Big budget films like ;  Agneepath ” , ” Houseful 2 “ and  Rowdy Rathore  earned mega bucks and entered in the prestigious 100 crore club . Small budget films like ;  ” Ishaqzaade ” , ” Kahaani ” , ” Vicky Donor ” , ” Paan Singh TomarandGangs of Wasseypur won praise and made money also . ” Ishaqzaade ”  marks entry of a fresh face Arjun Kapoor , who is making waves . ” Gangs Of Wasseypur “ heralds emergence of new Hindi cinema .

As usual , re – posting some of the relevant tweets of eminent trade analysts Mr. Komal Nahta and Mr. Taran Adarsh :

Tweets

Straight B-L-O-C-K-B-U-S-T-E-R! That’s what Rowdy Rathore is!! Next 100-crore film? All chances!

RR 1st day 15 crore; 2nd day 14.5 crore; 3rd day 18.5 crore. Total weekend: an astounding 48 crore!

@enter10meAnt Shanghai opens to poor houses. Too Class-appealing, too Confusing, hence not Commercial. Losing venture

Dull opening for Shanghai. Multiplexes around 15-30%. Single-screen cinemas terribly low. Sad!

Opening of Ferrari on lower side. In premium multiplexes, opening is fair

Ferrari Ki Sawaari 1st day about 2.9 to 3 crore. Today should be better than Friday

TMK 1st day: a little over 5 crore. GOW: around 2.75 crore. Both openings below the mark

#Shanghai [Week 2]: Fri 75 lacs, Sat 1 cr, Sun 1.25 cr, Mon 35 lacs, Tue 25 lacs. Total: 21.10 cr nett. Disappointing!

#RowdyRathore opening is fantabulous at single screens, plexes are good, should be great by noon/evening. Trends indicate Rs 15 cr Friday.

#RowdyRathore is @akshaykumar ‘s #Dabangg. His biggest opener!

#RowdyRathore *India* Fri 15.10 cr nett. Biggest non-holiday Friday opener. O-U-T-S-T-A-N-D-I-N-

#RowdyRathore is the third biggest opener ever, after #Agneepath and #Bodyguard. Incidentally, all three films are remakes

#RowdyRathore has biggest non-holiday weekend, collects Rs 48.5 cr + nett http://bit.ly/Mb3dpw

#RowdyRathore has smashed previous records by a big margin. Collects a colossal Rs 48.3 cr + nett in its first 3 days… contd.

#RowdyRathore biz is *better* than this year’s first Blockbuster #Agneepath, if one compares Friday to Sunday numbers… contd.

#RowdyRathore Breakup:- Fri 15.1 cr, Sat 14.7 cr, Sun 18.5 cr +. Total: Rs 48.5 cr + nett. Biggest non-holiday weekend. Fantabulous

#Ishaqzaade Week 4 – Rs 1.46 cr. Total: Rs 47.19 cr nett. Fantastic!

#RowdyRathore smashed previous records in many circuits. Has performed exceptionally well at single screens and plexes… contd

Update: #Shanghai opens to dull response http://bit.ly/Ls3u92

#RowdyRathore has crossed Rs 100 cr nett mark at the end of Weekend 2. Has performed exceptionally well at single screens as well as plexes.

#RowdyRathore joins the Rs 100 crore club: @taran_adarsh on IBN Live http://bit.ly/KyN1KM

#Shanghai started slow, but showed decent growth at hi-end multiplexes on Sat and Sun. However, the overall business is below the mark.

#RowdyRathore is unstoppable. Remains first choice of moviegoers. Collected a humungous Rs 35 cr nett in Week 2. Total: Rs 114.5 cr nett.

Update: #FerrariKiSawaari is decent at select screens, reports positive, should grow over the weekend http://bit.ly/rCkwLY

#RowdyRathore [Week 3]: Fri 2.25 cr, Sat 2.90 cr, Sun 4.50 cr, Mon 1.75 cr, Tue 1.70 cr. Total: 127.6 cr nett. Blockbuster.

#FerrariKiSawaari [Week 1]: Fri 3.04 cr, Sat 4.50 cr, Sun 6.37 cr, Mon 1.75 cr, Tue 1.60 cr. Total: 17.26 cr nett. Steady at plexe

#Shanghai [Week 2]: Fri 75 lacs, Sat 1 cr, Sun 1.25 cr, Mon 35 lacs, Tue 25 lacs. Total: 21.10 cr nett. Disappointing!

Update: Both #TeriMeriKahaani and #GOW are showing an upward trend. At some places, #GOW is leading, at some #TeriMeriKahaani.

#FerrariKiSawaari fared the best in Mumbai-Maharashtra belt and Delhi. Collected Rs 20.96 cr nett in Week 1. Satisfactory numbers!

#RowdyRathore emerges the fourth highest grosser in India, after #3Idiots, #Bodyguard and #Dabangg.

#GOW *actuals* Fri 3.03 cr, Sat 3.60 cr, Sun 4.37 cr, Mon 1.95 cr. Total: Rs 12.95 cr nett. Rock-steady!

#GOW *actuals* Fri 3.03 cr, Sat 3.60 cr, Sun 4.37 cr, Mon 1.95 cr, Tue 1.80 cr. Total: Rs 14.75 cr nett. Excellent on weekdays!

Biz Talk: #GOW floats, #TeriMeriKahaani sinks http://bit.ly/MA6jlo

#FerrariKiSawaari is holding well, despite new releases. Week 2: Fri-Sun – 5.04 cr, Mon – 65 lacs, Tue – 60 lacs. Total: Rs 27 cr + nett.

GALI GALI CHOR HAI collected Rs. 3 – 3.25 crore (approx. all-India net) at the box-office over the weekend.

EK MAIN AUR EKK TU opens to dull houses. Report: bit.ly/xoH50e

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.

Update: ‘Gali Gali Chor Hai’ has poor start, #Agneepath continues to dominate bit.ly/AxAnDk

Okay, those asking, #Agneepath is No 3 biggest opener of all times, after #Bodyguard and #RaOne.

taran adarsh @taran_adarsh

#Agneepath is the latest entrant in 100 cr nett Club. Collected Rs 15.25 cr nett in Wknd 2, taking total to Rs 106.3 cr nett. Super Hit
