Note: This article was first published way back in
2007.
Indian Box office verdicts are usually confusing. A
few movies are called Blockbusters by the media
even though they are just Semi-hit to Hit. A few
movies which go into overflow are termed Flops.
Also many of you might have wondered on
what basis a verdict is given out on a movie.
How does the trade define a movie as a Hit, Flop,
Superhit, Blockbuster. Hopefully this article will
clear all your doubts.
Gross collections – Total collections at the box
office.
Nett Gross (Raw collections) – Is the total gross
minus entertainment tax which is usually around
30%. When the government decides to waive off
the taxes of a certain film, it goes tax-free. In
which case, no entertainment taxes will be paid
by the producers / distributors.
Circuit: The area for which a distributor buys the
distribution rights for a film for a period of
(generally) 5 or 7 or 10 years.
Ratio: The price for which a film is sold for
Bombay circuit. Prices for all other circuits are
determined as a fixed percentage of the ratio. For
example, Delhi-U.P. is usually 80 to 85% of the
ratio. But in the case of action films, which have a
bigger market in North India, Delhi-U.P. may be
sold for 100% of the ratio.
Flop: If a film cant even cover its investment by
the distributor, it is termed a flop.
Average: If a film manages to simply recover its
cost, it is an average fare.
Commission Earner: When a film recovers the
investment and, over and above that, gets in
revenues of 25% more, it is termed a
commission earner. Thus, if the distributor?s total
investment in a film is Rs. 2 crore, and it does a
business of Rs. 2.50 crore, it is termed a
commission earner. 25% of Rs. 2 crore is Rs. 50
lakh which is the amount of commission which
belongs to the distributor to cover his expenses
of releasing the film.
Overflow: When a film crosses the commission
mark, the revenues thereafter are to be shared
between the producer and distributor. The
producer gets a share in the overflow business,
generally fifty-fifty. Such sharing makes the film
an overflow film. Overflow films can be further
categorised as under, depending on the quantum
of overflow.
Semi-Hit: A film which does a business that is
double the distributor's investment in it, is termed
a semi-hit. In such a case, the producer gets
handsome overflow from the distributor.
Hit: If a film more than doubles its investment in
the distributor's hands, it is deemed to be a hit.
Super-Hit: If the returns on a film are much
more than double the investment, it is termed a
super-hit.
Blockbuster: Returns are almost triple the
investment.
ALL TIME BLOCKBUSTER: When returns are
more than triple the investment i.e more than
300%.

Why 'Once Upon A Time In
Mumbaai' Failed To Shine
Dobaara?
August 18th, 2013 by Mohar Basu
Comments ( 10 )
Once Upon Ay Time In Mumbaai Dobaara is
a washed out, toned down, sheen-less
successor of a film we have etched in our
minds and hearts. I, for one, was more
excited about OUATIMD than Chennai
Express; but the latter gave me a far better
time than this one. In the hall, with friends,
we had a joke about which is the best
scene in OUATIMD ' the one in which they
show a glimpse of Ajay Devgn.
There is absolutely nothing wrong in a predictable
story line which the film stenches of sameness
but when memories of the film's last edition
comes alive, OUATIMD seems like a dismal
failure.
Being a Milan Luthria film, there are always higher
expectations. Given a theme like Silk Smitha's life,
which he translated into a fabulous film as The
Dirty Picture, I went expecting his usual marvel.
Sonakshi Sinha And Akshay Kumar in Once Upon
A Time In Mumbaai Dobaara! Movie Stills
Alas, my disappointments surpassed my
expectations making my aversion for gangster
sagas even worse. I have never been a fan of
Shootouts or ala Once Upons, but OUATIM was a
good experience for me. With a strong plot,
fantastic execution and delectable screenplay, it
was hard to dislike the film. Fashioned on the life
of Haji Mastan, Ajay Devgn delivered a delicious
performance. Emraan Hashmi, who played his
protege was first rate. An out an out gangster
saga, with thrilling manipulative politics and gritty
action, OUATIM was a film to be remembered
fondly.
Contrarily OUATIMD has none of the better values
of its prequel. The story line is dull and has
nothing to do with don-hood. It is a love triangle
where two baddies love the same woman! The
film's screenplay is shabby where there are too
many loose moments that will bore you and
there are too many ridiculous sequences that will
crack you up when you are supposed to choke
up.
It would be unfair to compare the actors, who
are both remarkable in their own right but Ajay
Devgn as Sultan outshines for the script's ability
to infuse charisma in the role. Even Emraan
Hashmi as the protege was so brilliant that it was
hard to take your eyes off that Shoaib. Akshay
fails to bring in the same intensity, passion and
zeal of his character.
As Sultan's protege in the earlier stint,
Emraan gave one of the most memorable
performances as his career.
Whereas Imran Khan falls flat in front of
him in a similar role. With a countable three
expressions on his face, the director
makes a judgement error in giving him
long sequences which will bore you to
death (remember the hospital scene). The
man's dialogue delivery is a test of your
patience, and this blue eyed Khan defies his
Mamu's brilliance!
The dirty game never get down really dirty and
Shoaib just dons a fake gangster persona, with
his story providing no meat for the same. He is a
mock don who spends far too much time
bickering with his men rather than focusing on
his work. Seems like the don who controls
Mumbai is so utterly jobless!
Coming to the dialogues, OUATIM reveled in
words that will have you awestruck
whereas OUATIMD gives you lines like, "Doodh
mein nimbu jisne nichora, paneer uska" and
"Pyaar aaj kal naukrani jaise ban gaya hai. Aata
hai, bell bajata hai, kaam karke chala jaata hai."
You'll be flabbergasted and confused as to laugh
at their audacity of writing such witless dialogues
or laugh at their poor sense writing, nevertheless
do laugh! For a good part of the first half, there is
confusion of intermediate and intercourse, a gag
poorly conceived and overstretched.
OUATIM's dialogues did not reek of brilliance, but
were more interesting for sure. With lines like,
"Mushkil toh yeh hai ki main abhi thik tarah se
bhigda bhi nahin ' aur tumne sudharna shuru kar
diya!" and "Jinki manzilein ek hoti hai ' woh
raaston par hi toh milte hai", the dialogues had a
greater screen value with a stronger punch.
Whereas the writer could only get tirelessly
repetitive in this one giving us multiple variations
of 'Raaste ki parwah karoonga toh ' manzil bura
maan jayegi!'
The music of OUATIMD in ordinary and
forgettable as compared to the original one. being
an absolute fan of the prequel edition, I dont
know why did the film's makers decide to botch
up the memory of an absolutely wonderful film
that warmed the cockles of our heart being
cinema lovers with a sequel so inappropriate and
unintelligent. Now the mere idea of a Teesra film
will traumatize me. I simply hope that Ekta too
gives that idea a miss, or we are in for another
warped-ly named film with a more convoluted
mess of a story
