Golmaal Again is looking to put up a big first day number as it flirts with 30 crore nett apprx collections but these collections do not tell the whole story. The film has recorded the highest occupancy in a long time at multiplexes and single screens across the country. The occupancy is actually on par and even higher at places than Bahubali - The Conclusion. In real terms it is the highest opening in a long time but poor distribution has hit it for 5-6 crore and on top the clash with Secret Superstar was there which was going to hit the film anyway. The brand value of the film and the horror element to the comedy has meant the audience has come in hordes to theatres across India. The previous Golmaal films have done well but they have not had collections which were strong all over the country like Golmaal Returns.

This collections at the moment look a bit under 30 crore nett but it is likely that Mumbai circuit will put up an insane number in the morning which should take it to 30 crore nett or maybe even a crore higher. The figures coming from some stations of the Gujarat / Saurashtra belt are just unbelievable and this will help Mumbai circuit to a huge number. The brand is the biggest in Gujarat as far as Hindi film goes. North India which has done moderate business on the previous films is also very strong this time with Delhi / UP heading for a huge 6 crore nett while East Punjab will also be very strong.

Obviously it is a holiday and the real test is after the holiday but with these sort of occupancy rates the film should continue to well and outside the metros there is a good chance that multiplexes will add shows and the quicker they do the better it will be for the film as it only really benefits when the film is collecting strongly over the weekend rather than the weekdays.

I'm telling you if there were no clash. Iss film ne 40+ karni thi. Aaj jo dekha maine theatre ke bahar, woh kabhi nhi dekha tha. People were literally crazy, long queue and buying tickets paying almost double price. All shows house full and jo enjoy kiya hai logo ne kaan kharab ho gye mere.

Watched it..??

Before SS..??


Haan. I watched it in single screen theatre. Balcony ka 70₹ lag rha tha and I had only 80₹ in Paytm. Baaki SS ka below 150₹ tickets kisi bhi thetare mein nhi the. So, Watched Golmaal first. I'll watch Secret Superstar in weekdays. Abhi price hiked hai kaafi.

Pleasantly surprised,i was expecting 30cr with clash but after this messed up release i thought 25cr, but still 30.
According to boi it would have collected 36cr if the distribution would not have messed up even with clash means in solo sure shot highest opener of all-time waah
Sach mein mindblowing, golmaal brand ne sach mein kamaal kardiya.
Now I think all golmaal parts will get solo diwali release now on because no-one can't doubt golmaal brand & apart from khans nobody can stand a chance infront of golmaal.
Now I think movie will cross 90cr in 1st weekend as wom is good so it could be the first blockbuster of this year.

Where are those who were underestimating G4 and were saying it will do 20-22cr and I was constantly saying it will go past 26cr again and again but no one was willing to admit it my prediction was 26-28cr so G4 done it and beaten SS brutally aamir played dirty game to save his false prestige and fake stardom now he is totally exposed to the world good ajay sir u done it coz aamir deserves it badly

this means a 35cr opening would have happened despite clash if the distributors weren't sleeping.

anyway, I am amazed to see that since I thought the trailer wasn't very good. but I guess the brand name covered for that.d

Bumper opening for Golmaal 4 , franchise value is still super hot for audience even last franchise release was in 2010...

But there is good chance that multiplex will add screens & the quicker they do - lol BOI begging distributor to increase screens for G4...
Don't be surprised he they actually come out with 1 full page article just to bash Aamir because Golmaal makers fool themselves & not gets 70:30 screens what they are dreaming in their overconfidence...

Massive number and I was damn wrong when I said it will do 20cr.
This makes it very tough for SS now. G4 will storm through the weekend now.

answered by Super-star (165k points)

SS will be max 8-9cr for yesterday and G4 will get more shows as well


Yes. Very very tough for SS to recover now. G4 has actually made it very one sided
