Shuddh Desi Romance wins hearts, Zanjeer is a damp squib: Weekend box office report!

Shuddh Desi Romance wins hearts, Zanjeer is a damp squib: Weekend box office report!
0

As expected, the Parineeti Chopra-Sushant Singh Rajput starrer has emerged a clear winner at the box office and earned Rs 22.25 crore over the weekend, while the Priyanka Chopra-Ram Charan Teja remake opened to a dull house and fared below average at the ticket counters, bringing in just Rs 9.25 crore

Yash Raj Films' Shuddh Desi Romance starring Sushant Singh Rajput, Parineeti Chopra and Vaani Kapoor has not only been garnering good responses from audiences and critics alike, but is also raking in good moolah at the box office. Unfortunately Apoorva Lakhia's highly-anticipated remake of Zanjeer featuring Ram Charan Teja, Sanjay Dutt and Priyanka Chopra is one of the biggest disasters of this year, as claimed by critics.

Supported by exemplary pre-release buzz, the opening weekend of Maneesh Sharma's hatke romcom is estimated to be in the range of Rs 23 crores (not counting the Ganesh Chaturthi Monday holiday). As trade analyst and film critic Taran Adarsh points out, "SDR is made within a controlled budget, boasts of decent music, flouts the rules of the game (conventional masala), is garnished with light moments and marketed correctly can yield rich dividends." He explains, "All these factors put together resulted in an impressive start for SDR in the domestic market. The word of mouth was super-strong, which resulted in the business growing steadfastly over the weekend."

About Zanjeer, Adarsh tweets, "It failed to take off, despite aggressive promotions and a formidable cast to lure the spectators. The question that crossed my mind several times over the weekend was - why was it a non-starter at the ticket window? How does one explain the viewers' indifference to this biggie? If, for instance, we claim that the audience isn't comfortable with the idea of remaking an Amitabh Bachchan film, how do we explain the phenomenal success of Don and Agneepath, both Bachchan starrers?"

According to BoxOfficeIndia, "Zanjeer has emerged as one of the biggest disasters of the year. The film costing around Rs 60 crores including print and marketing costs will find it extremely difficult to recover the production costs. The weekend breakdown is as follows - Friday Rs 3.25 crore, Saturday Rs 2.75 crore and Sunday Rs 3.25 crore. Total - Rs 9.25 crore. Shuddh Desi Romance grossed around 22 crore nett plus. The film had done very well in Rajasthan as the film is set there while Delhi/UP and East Punjab also witnessed good business. Ganesh Chaturthi holiday yesterday helped the film. The weekend breakdown: Friday Rs 6.25 crore, Saturday Rs 7.50 crore, Sunday Rs 8.50 crore. Total - Rs 22.25 crore!"

So with Parineeti racing ahead of her senior star sister Priyanka at the box office, wethinks its high time PC pulled up her socks and give a tagda fight - though she says she's extra protective of her baby sibling! - to Pari next time their releases clash at the box office. What do you think, peeps?

Balaji's bright new sparks
By Meghna Sharma
09 September 2013 12:00 pm | Indiantelevision.com Team
 

MUMBAI: Even as television channels churn out soap operas in a bid to outdo each other, more and more youngsters are finding themselves dreaming of making it big in films and television.

Glamour struck as these young guns are, more often than not, they are not really equipped to deal with the big, bad world that lurks beneath the shiny surface.

This is where companies like Balaji Spark aim to step in to handhold and nurture the new talent. "Our philosophy is about nurturing. We want to do everything a parent does for a child," exults Balaji Motion Pictures CEO Tanuj Garg about Balaji's new talent management arm.

With its mission to identify and manage new talent, Spark will represent both on-screen and directorial talent discovered and launched by BMPL and Balaji Telefilms in films and television, respectively. The unit will be under BMPL, and will be helmed by Firoz Engineer, who will report into Garg.

Spark's job will also be about guiding new talent, managing their image and PR among other things. Garg clarifies that among the hundreds of applications Balaji receives every day, its casting directors single out only such talent that they feel is worth grooming. "We are not looking at 100 people or so. It is just going to be a handful of them, who we will oversee so that there is some kind of class and pedigree involved," he says.

With the likes of Yash Raj Films and Viacom18 Media too having established units offering similar services, what would differentiate Spark from the rest? "We clearly don't look at ourselves as agencies or brokers because we don't think that's the way talent is managed or launched. Some of the biggest names in the industry have been launched by us, and we continue to do so. It is our responsibility to help them and not use them as commodities," quips Garg.

Spark is all about about parenting and not deal making like others, says Tanuj Garg

Indeed, actors such as Smriti Malhotra-Irani, Sakshi Tanwar, Ram Kapoor, Prachi Desai, Rajeev Khandelwal, Shweta Tiwari, Sushant Singh Rajput, Ronit Roy, Hiten Tejwani, Urvashi Dholakia and more recently, Rajat Tokas and Paridhi Sharma of Jodha Akbar fame, rose from the Balaji stable to achieve iconic status. Garg points out that currently, Spark will focus on the selected lot of actors instead of searching for newer faces. "We don't want to disturb the applecart and lure people to come to us. We might do that later but as of now, our immediate plans are to nurture the talent we want to launch in TV or films," he says.

Spark will have a simple fee structure where it gets management fee, which is a certain price of the deal. All value-added services like paperwork, PR etc. will be part of the deal. Spark will get anything between 10-25 per cent of the deal, which is in keeping with industry standards. The contract timeframe will be a minimum of three years, though it may vary from deal to deal.

Elaborating on Spark's low intensive business model, Garg says: "Consumers don't have to know about us. What matters is people in the industry know us for they will consume our talent."

Hats Off Production's JD Majethia agrees. "Take the example of Sushant Singh Rajput; if he didn't have the push of Balaji, do you think he would have been where he is today? Balaji has launched so many faces and since there are so many opportunities, it is bound to set new limits," he says.

Beyond Dreamz's Yash Patnaik too feels Spark will only benefit the industry as new talent will get an umbrella where they can get groomed and hone their skills.

Not just budding youngsters, Spark will also be managing Balaji head honcho Ekta Kapoor. "People want her for shows, as speaker or to host them. She is a brand to reckon with, and she has realised it is high time she came out if there is an interesting and exciting offer. So we will be handling her," says Garg excitedly.

Spark plans to partner with other entities across the nation to work with its artists to recognise the right opportunities for them in terms of brand and cause endorsements, performances and appearances on various shows and events.

With a record-breaking career graph thus far, we are sure, Balaji will only forge ahead with this venture...
