Not sure why since the movie was heavily priced to it's distributors.

May be the fact that it was a profit earner in every circuit where on an average 3cr distribution price it made 4.5cr recovery. And Hum Saath Saath Hain was the first movie to collect 1cr in week 1 itself in Mumbai circuit alone with only 16 screens.

It sold to distributors at what price and how much profit they made??
@super nova.. 3cr per territory & recovery of 4.5cr per territory.

@saransh.. Might be but the problem with DTPH is that it didn't trend well all over. Atleast it was not bad as Pardes where the tax exemption helped it get a Hit status. DTPH's verdict will be interesting to see but unlike HSSH, DTPH mainly ran in urban centers rather than B & C centers where the trending didn't match up.
@suhas probably u r right. SRK doesn't hv stronghold in b,c centres n dat might affect d verdict of sm of his movies frm 90's.
@saransh.. Srk is strong in B&C centers, it's just that in 1997, DTPH didn't trend well since it appealed to urban section & sadly Subhash Ghai didn't promote Pardes at all for that to appeal for B & C centers. The songs of Pardes became a Hit only after the release of the film. That's why Pardes was telecasted on Star Plus very quickly after it's release. Subhash Ghai made the same mistake with Taal too. The reason why Shahrukh chose to stay away from Ghai.
