'Salesman Of The Year' Breaks Record Of Many Years!

December 12, 2009 by TFSJ 

Rocket SinghThere was divided opinion in the industry, prior to the release of Yash Chopra's Rocket Singh ' Salesman Of The Year, about the opening it would take on Friday.
While some felt, Ranbir Kapoor would bring the crowds into the cinemas on the first day, others were sceptical about the opening because of the low-key promotion and lack of popularity of the film's music. But even the most pessimistic person in the trade must not have expected Rocket Singh to start on as poor a note as it actually did yesterday (11th Decem­ber)! Collections were shockingly weak in almost every circuit, every centre, every cinema.

At Shiela cinema in Roh­tak (East Punjab), Rocket Singh could collect just Rs. 3,000 in the first show on Friday against a capacity of ' hold your breath! ' Rs. 65,000! At the same cinema, Ranbir's earlier film, Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani, had collected Rs. 60,000 in the opening show, five weeks back. While the first day of Ajab Prem' had closed at Rs. 2,06,000 at the cinema, the first day's total of Rocket Singh was a measly Rs. 36,000.

The first show's collection at the cinema is, perhaps, the lowest in years. The previous record for dismal collections was held by Venus' Maan Gaye Mughall-E-Azam which recorded Rs. 6,000 in the first show of the first day. Rocket Singh has collected 50% of the lowest ever collection. In Dehradun, it was released in just one cinema ' Natraj ' where it collected Rs. 6,000 in the first show. Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani, on the other hand, had opened in two cinemas. In spite of that, its first show at New Empire, Dehradun was of Rs. 35,000.

In a city like Pune, while the week's other major release, The Twilight Saga: New Moon (English) recorded full houses in three auditoria of E-Square multiplex in the first show, Rocket Singh couldn't even draw enough crowds to fill one auditorium. Ghaziabad, Lucknow (Rs. 4,400 in the first show at Pratibha against a capacity of Rs. 25,000), Bom­bay, Delhi' the opening was pathetic almost everywhere.

i liked the promo, it was cute, ranbir looked genunine, I actually never really liked ranbir but after seeing how geninune he looking in both the song and the promo, I can't wait till my exam are over so I can watch it.


but I agree I think its because of over exposure of ranbir. Hes not really akshay kumar who we love to see agian and agian. but i'm really sad this movie is not doing well. I really thought it had a good msg.

Human_Torch ji, you need to see public reviews. 
 
Fact is most Akki's movies have a huge opening.  It's not like he is the only one who does movies in the comedy genre.  There are many who do comedies yet those movies do not get a huge opening.  Whether the movie does well or not later, is another story.  No star can guarantee a hit.  Even SRK has had flops, hasn't he?  Aamir is the only one who can guarantee a hit most of the times.  That's a fact.  Tongue

I agree his flims have flopped but he does have good openings. Aamir has had a few flops too but not to many but Aamir does one or 2 films a year. Hence he isnt over exposed. Sometime ppl just get sick of seeing some actors faces. Esp when half them time their in the media for other reasons other than their movies.  I

I agree..I think Ranbir has just been overhyped and I am not convinced he has made his mark either as an actor or a star yet....
