By Film Information - August 9, 2019

(From our issue dated 13th August, 1994)


All talks in the trade throughout the week centred around HUM AAPKE HAIN KOUN..!. Despite trade reports to the contrary, it has been accepted by the public with open arms. Its unconventional form, feared (by many in the trade) to be its minus point, has, in fact, turned out to be its biggest plus point.

Hum Aapke Hain Koun..! has been loved, especially by ladies and family audience, for its freshness and novel pre­sentation. Reduction in its length due to editing is expected to improve collections of first shows which will now start a bit late. 1st week Liberty, Bombay 3,32,661 (100%); Ahmedabad 1,34,807, Gandhi­nagar 2,41,672, Baroda 1,76,841, record, Vapi 1,83,889, Rajkot 62,121; Pune 2,07,249, Solapur 91,365 (99.13%), Nasik 1,18,320, city record; Delhi 5,80,438 from 2 cinemas; Lucknow 2,23,467, Kanpur 2,06,314, Varanasi 1,29,613, Agra 1,48,741; Calcutta 3,55,279 (100%) from 2 cinemas; Nagpur 2,84,826, theatre re­cords at both the cinemas, Amravati 1,12,729, city record, Akola 77,767, Bhilai 94,070; Jaipur 2,54,786; Banga­lore 1,90,411 from 2 cinemas; Hyderabad 4,74,678, total 46,82,044 from 26 cine­mas 

HUM AAPKE HAIN KOUN..! has created a district record by collecting 1,82,887/- (nett) in 1st week at Jay­shree, Vapi. A lady among the audi­ence on 7th August in the last show fell unconscious while seeing Renuka Shahane fall to her death. She had to be rushed to hospital for treatment.

* HUM AAPKE HAIN KOUN..! is already being repeated by cinegoers. One Satish has seen it four times in five days at Liberty, Bombay. ….The licensed products (merchandise) of Archies, being sold on their counters at Liberty, Bombay are in good de­mand. The cinema has made an exe­cutive lounge with catering by Crois­sants. The idea has proved popular among youngsters and family audi­ence.

* The mother of a Delhi-based distributor, Deep Jain, saw a film (HAHK..!) after 22 years!

* At Hind, Calcutta, about 200 persons gatecrashed (without tickets) into the cinema, which was screening HAHK..!, in the last show on one day.

  • At Maheshwari, Hyderabad, screening HAHK..!, ladies audience can be seen carrying their lunch boxes alongwith them. They eat their food in the cinema premises if they do not get tickets for one show and prefer to wait for the next show. Incidentally, no street publicity was done in the twin cities of Hyderabad and Secundera­bad – that is, not a single hoarding, banner, kiosk or poster was display­ed in the twin cities. In spite of that, all the 28 shows were full in advance!

  • Abhinay cinema, Aurangabad will hold special shows of HUM AAPKE HAIN KOUN..! for ladies only, every morning from 15th August onwards.

HAHK first day- 9 l not in top 50 film at no.50 had 15 l
HAHK first weekend- 28 l not in top 50 film at no.50 had 45 l
HAHK first week- 68 l not in top 50 film at no.50 had 78 l
HAHK first week collection is just 1 l ahead of record opener in that year
Record for most collections after 11 th week is with HAHK with 60.98 c with total collections of HAHK at 72 c
HAHK is the only ATB which had been released on just few screens when capacity was 7 times higher
Hope you will be guided by this information and now time has come to move over of HAHK friend

See the percentage occupancy,80-85% for the fdfs which was 9 th highest that year and stop blabbering nonsense from now onwards


Do you even know about no of screens? it had done 9 lakh on just 10 screen which is insane occupancy of 110%..


Time has come to move over HAHK....says a guy who's still stuck in Ghatak, Damini days.
