Bang Bang having the biggest cost to produce and release of over 160 crore making it the second most expensive Hindi film of all time.
The business of Kick and Happy New Year has been strong but the third week has disappointed compared to what the big releases did in 2013. Dhoom 3 and Chennai Express both grossed over 16 crore nett in week three.
It can be said that Kick and Happy new Year had competition in week three but it was a similar story for Chennai Express last year. The run of wide released films is getting shorter and shorter.
Below are the five week all India collections from the four the Delhi NCR area for New Year Bang Bang and Kick. (Note - Bang Bang first week is 8 days)
HNY trended better then Kick after 2nd week.This proves that its Single screen which underperform in 1st and 2nd week in single screen otherwise figures would have been on par or better then Kick.Its only Starpower in plexes that even movies like HNY do well in plexes..Btw acc to them Bang Bang budget is 160cr. and thats huge.
