Chennai Express: The Road to 200 crore business in India

  • 0
     

Chennai Express has already collected Rs 181.92 crores in just 10 days at the India box office. The film now needs around 21 crores to go past the lifetime collections of Aamir Khan's 3 Idiots.

The most frequently asked question in the last couple of weeks on our website here, Twitter and Facebook pages has been – Can Chennai Express cross 200 crores and finally be the highest grossing film in the history of the Indian film industry?

3 Idiots - Chennai Express

3 Idiots vs Chennai Express

Before we get down to predicting the business for the remaining weeks, lets take a look at the numbers so far:

  • 1st Week – 156.71 crore
  • 2nd Weekend – 25.21 crore
  • Total – 181.92 crore

Below is our prediction for the remaining days this week

  • Monday – 4 crore
  • Tuesday – 3.75 crore
  • Wednesday – 5 crore (Raksha Bandhan)
  • Thursday – 3.2 crore
  • 2nd Week Total – 197.87 crore

Last year, Rohit Shetty's very own Bol Bachchan (in week 4) almost doubled its previous day business on the Rakshabandhan holiday. Chennai Express too is likely to benefit as the word-of-mouth is very good and the family audience are coming out in numbers to watch the film.

This weekend, CE has competition from John Abraham's Madras Cafe which is a multiplex-targetted film. But going by the pre-release buzz that the film is carrying, Madras Cafe will have little or no impact on Chennai Express – unless the word-of-mouth is terrific. Even a drop of 65-70% in Week 3 would still mean business of around 11-12 crores.

By the time Satyagraha releases in theatres this month end, CE would have already collected around 210 crores.

Overall, Chennai Express is almost certain to break the 3Idiots record and could finish with lifetime collections of  around 215 crores.

@Nadz: Now there is way too much competition in India. If a film had a small release and is successful the run is longer. Like Ashiqui2, TDP, Kahaani all crossed 100 days ie 14-15 weeks of theaterical run. But a successful film which had a bigger release goes faster like ETT last for about 4 weeks in my city. This is because most people probably saw the movie in its first week itself.

4 weeks is a decent run in India...a sign of success actually. Most movies have a shorter run. But yes there used to be a time when movies used to run for months or even years.
