All India Comparison - Kaala v Kabali. [BOI]

+2 votes
The comparison between Kaala and Kabali makes for sad reading for the former as Kabali grossed 109.25 crore nett in three days while Kaala has collected just 65.50 crore in four days. The figures are lower across the country in every single market with all markets being around 50% or down barring the home market of Tamil Nadu.

The South markets have been hit by GST and LBT since Kabali but even gross figures have a gap of 40 crores and that is also 3 days for Kabali and four days for Kaala. At the time of release Kabali had the highest NETT weekend ever in India collecting a little higher than Salman Khan's Sultan which had done 105.50 crore nett over its first three days.

The comparison of the NETT figures of Kabali and Kaala are as follows. All are apprx numbers.

Tamil Nadu
Kabali  - 48,00,00,000
Kaala - 37,50,00,000

Nizam / Andhra
Kabali - 20,25,00,000
Kaala - 10,50,00,000

Mysore / Kanataka
Kabali -16,50,00,000
Kaala - 7,00,00,000

Kabali - 8,50,00,000
Kaala - 3,50,00,000

Rest Of India (This includes not only Hindi but Tamil and Telugu playing outside South India)
Kabali - 16,00,00,000
Kaala - 7,00,00,000

Kabali - 1,09,25,00,000  3 Days)
Kaala - 65,50,00,000 (4 Days)

I already said this previously that Kaala will drop after first day, it turns out it didn't even do that much on it's opening day.

2.0 Is the movie he will bank on....But seeing the delays not sure of that too.

Kaala is much better than Kabali but collections speak other way around. I thought it would get good growth on Sat-Sun but didnt happen. Tough luck Rajini Sir.

That's gross number, BOI is confused between nett & gross.
Kaala is a disaster in Ap/Ts & Kerala will be a failure else where.
Even 109cr of kabali is gross number i think

There in no DCR in South films & actually it is DSR (Daily share reporting) so most of collections (Nett/gross) are worked out through Shares.

that's the main reason. BOI is generally off the mark when it comes to south film tracking.

Check old films data of Andhraboxoffice & Indianmoviestat.

Even with same share they estimate different Gross.

Acc to abo, Kabali weekend nett - ₹109.55cr

rocsky is a legend.

But according to ABO 65cr is gross no of kaala.

Its a big failure like his last couple of films but that's because distributors paid so much and thatswhy despite doing decent business rajni sir's films are getting flop but he is rajnikanth the true megastar and hope he will come back as a king with his next.
