Joker Movie Review 

Ojha's Opinion:
Joker Review Omar Qureshi
I regret why I went for this one. However had some childish time with JOKER. Not satisfying but will entertain target audience. Did they promote JOKER in Cartoon Network? or Hungama? No.. I guess they seriously needed to go for it. I'll sit back & watch Shin Chan rather.

150+ cr for Ek tha Tiger Collection in India

Bollywood Box office Collection ETT crossing 150 cr. milestone in extended first week takes it to more closer to "Tiger on a Mission 200" :)

However the film remained a bit on the lower side this Friday which was expectable.

First 7 Days Total Collection: (Wednesday - Tuesday) is 137.15 cr. Also Shirin Farhad Ki Toh Nikal Padi Movie Review not being high in demand ETT is bound to rise in coming days.

Week 1 Extended Collection Report:
Wednesday: 10.45 cr.
Thursday: 6.61 cr.
Friday: 4.53 cr
Overall Collection in India by Ek Tha Tiger 158.74 cr.

Due to the fall on 2nd Friday Collection, trade analysts doubt about ETT surpassing 3 Idiots on Collection basis. However fans are still pouring into the cinema halls & no big releases this Friday, its expected to climb back on Saturday & Sunday. Sunday figures will be the most exciting for everyone related to ETT and have their fingers crossed.

Total Overseas Collection by ETT is around 30 cr.

Total Worldwide Collection by ETT is 188.74 cr. after first 9 days.

Ojha's Opinion: Personally, I seriously didn't liked Farah Khan's acting or whatever she did while the camera spotted her. Boman was as usual did his job well, & SFKTNP comes alive in times due to him. A few gags & cracks makes us remember some happy moments while walking out of the hal.

Eid 6th Day (Monday) Collection of Ek Tha Tiger

Best ever collection by any movie was noted on Monday by Ek Tha Tiger. Well, of course due to Eid & whole of the Muslim crowd's rush who stay away from Entertainment during Ramzan Days . However we take it as a new record for the Best Monday Collection.

Film has already broke several records & its still on fire. Just to recap for those who leaped in right now.

Records set by Ek Tha Tiger so far:

  • Biggest opening ever recorded i.e. Highest 1st day Collection.
  • Quickest 100 cr. mark 
  • Also the highest collection of Wednesday compared to any day of any movie.
  • Now the highest Monday Collection

Reported business by Ek Tha Tiger on 6th Day of release is 20.68 cr.

Ek Tha Tiger CollectionWednesday : 32.92 cr.
Thursday: 14.55 cr.
Friday: 12.9 cr.
Saturday: 16.75 cr.
Sunday: 23.06 cr.

Monday: 20.84 cr. (Eid)

Total Domestic Collection upto Monday: 120.84 cr.

Now, its Tuesday & coming week days that will apply a little brake to the advancement of ETT. But again coming weekend will be rocking since no big release is going to be up in theatres.

All the best to ETT for the next milestone 200 cr.

5th Day Sunday Collection by Ek Tha Tiger

Ek Tha Tiger did exactly what it was supposed to do. Whether it was in the multiplexes or the single-screen cinemas, the madness for the film was unprecedented. The best way to describe the craze for the Salman starrer was ‘Salmania’. It surpassed that was seen during the previous Salman releases like Dabangg and Bodyguard.

ETT Box Office Collection Report
Wednesday : 32.92 cr.
Thursday: 14.55 cr.
Friday: 12.9 cr.
Saturday: 16.75 cr.
Sunday: 23.06 cr.
Total Domestic Collection by now: 100.16 cr.

If there is a huge jump in collections on Eid and on the following day, as is expected, it should not be surprising if the film touches the Rs. 150-crore mark by the end of the first week (of nine days).
The question being asked in trade circles and in the public now is whether Tiger will touch the Rs. 200-crore mark. It is too premature to predict that but whether it does or not, one thing is crystal clear – and that is, Ek Tha Tiger is the biggest grosser of Salman Khan’s career to-date.

But if thought other way, investment in the film was around 90 cr. So if it makes around 180-190 cr, its not a bad deal. A clear 100% gain.

Congratulations Ek Tha Tiger team. Special credits for Salman-Kat.

2nd Day Box Office Collection by Ek Tha Tiger

After a surprise wave across the country & trade analysts on the first day of release by 1st day collection by Ek Tha Tiger, the film has received a fall of around 45% in collections due to a reported working day.

Though expectable fall was not reported which was thought to be around 30-35%

The reason for this is thought to be some negative/average words by most trusted critics. Well only one or two of them were avg. otherwise all the reviews from all Indian critics were positive.

Thought ETT has done a great job on first day, a huge fall back on thursday says there may more on Friday(another working day). However then followed by Weekend & Ramzan Eid on Monday will surely have a shot on collections in the first week.

Summary of Collections made by Ek tha Tiger:

Wednesday : 32.92 cr.
Thursday: 15 cr.
Total Domestic Collection by now: *47.92 cr.
Total Overseas Collection: *6 cr.
* Rough(rounded) figures 

Worldwide Collection by Salman's Ek Tha Tiger is around 53.92 cr.

Already ETT has broken almost all the records of opening day. Let's see whats the scene after 1st weekend.

1st Day Collection by Ek Tha Tiger

Ek Tha Tiger First Day CollectionEk Tha Tiger hype is all over India & with such a timing of National Holiday--then Weekend---then Eid.. Its all set to be one of the biggest films of Bollywood as far as Collections are concerned.

Reviews for ETT has already done the job, however Salman's movies are not watched by fans followed by critics. They just go for it dumping critics response aside.

Before the release it was thought that 25 crores may be target on the first day but at the end of the day it went above 30 crores which is ground breaking performance by any Salman's film so far.

Flying news refer that figures will stay around 29-30 crores at the end of the first day.

However, according to one of the famous trade analysts it has already crossed 30 crores & may stop around 34-35 crores.

These figures are just impractical & need perfection by thorough analysis.

But one thing is sure, Ek Tha Tiger is going to rewrite the history in Bollywood Collection as done by 3 Idiots & Agneepath 2012.

Things to know about Ek Tha Tiger

ETT Movie Review

Now everyone knows that Ek Tha Tiger is the next Salman Khan starrer with Katrina Kaif after their first collaborated film Yuvvraaj. This one of the most awaited blockbuster is going to release on Wednesday (not on Friday what normally happens). It only happened due to the Independence Day on 15th August.

Its actually a nice move by the production house because recently we saw the result of the same tactic by The Amazing Spider Man in USA. The Amazing Spider Man got a release on 4th of July in USA, & that really worked.

Due to such a coincidence there are chances that Ek Tha Tiger will even cross 200 crores breaking all the records set by any bollywood film till now. Agneepath 2012 had the highest gross on the first day of release & that too is being expected to be broken by Ek Tha Tiger.

After Wanted, Salman Khan is on a roll. Dabaang, Ready & Bodyguard: Three back to back success srories has took the star to the peak position of his career.

Director Kabir Khan said that he wrote the script with Salman in mind and there is nobody else who can play Tiger better than him. So you can expect Salman in his real Dabaang style in this one with super action flicks.

Film promos has struck a cord in the social media & its been a common topic across a huge population. On the music side, songs are on top of the chart with Mashallah's initiation followed by Laapta and Banjaara.

The promotion work is going allz-well, however flying words says that Katrina is not so indulged on this part of the movie. Hope that ETT lives upto the expectations & raises the heights of Bollywood Cinemas.

We wish you all the best, Inshahallah this Eid would be the best of your life Salman.

Gangs of Wasseypur 2 ReviewKashyap, its only him & the cast that made Gangs of Wasseypur(1 & 2) eligible to be added as one of legends of Bollywood. Part 2 is even better with a quick paced & no boring intros. Plot all set & young gang is ready to set it on fire. GOW 2 is not to be missed.
