Punjab 1984 Emerges BLOCKBUSUTER

Punjab 1984 has emerged a blockbuster and is set to be one of the biggest Punjabi blockbusters of all time. The film had a great opening and the way it has sustained over the weekdays is even better. The film looks set to be one of the rare films to go over 10 crore nett in East Punjab. It could even become the highest grosser ever but that all depends on weeks three to five.

This 10 crore nett figure for Punjabi films in East Punjab is like the 200 crore nett figure for Hindi films. Till date only three films (Jatt and Juliet 2, Jatt and Juliet and Carry On Jatta) have crossed this mark.

More importantly for the Punjabi film industry is that a genre outside comedy has worked in such a big way. The industry was stagnating as 90% of the films being made were comedies and while budgets were going up business was not. Punjab 1984 is an emotional period drama and is totally different from what has worked in Punjab for the last 30 years or so as far as Punjabi films are concerned.

The film will collect around 5.75-6 crore nett in East Punjab in week one which is the second highest first week figure ever and with the fantastic appreciation it has received the 10 crore nett lifetime total will not be difficult.

Punjab 1984 has outstanding performances by Diljit Dosanjh, Kiron Kher and Pawan Malhotra and been been written and directed by Anurag Singh without the usual commercial trappings which makes its huge box office success even more outstanding.​

Punjab 1984 did extraordinary business in the second weekend as it grossed around 1.85 crore nett in East Punjab which is a drop of just 42% from the first weekend. The film will have business of around 9 crore nett in East Punjab in two weeks with the rest of India giving a further 1.25 crore nett.

The business on the second Sunday was mind blowing in East Punjab as it was around 85 lakhs nett which is less than 30% drop from first Sunday. This indicates fantastic word of mouth amongst the family audience and another few good weeks still to come.

The business in East Punjab is sure to cross Jatt and Juliet and Carry On Jatta which are the second and third highest grossers ever respectively and there is a chance it could even become the highest grossing Punjabi film ever by beating the 12 crore nett approx of Jatt and Juliet 2.

Sardaarji Smashes All Box Office Records




Sardaarji has smashed all records for a Punjabi film and that too by a distance. The all India collections of the film will be around 2.5 crore nett with East Punjab grossing around 2 crore nett and the rest of India adding around 50 lakhs nett. The previous best was around 1.50 crore all India of Jatt and Juliet 2 in 2013.

There has been huge growth in the Punjab circuit over the last 18 months but no film has been able to take advantage until Sardaarji which has basically beaten the Punjab record by around 50%.

The film is a huge boost to the Punjabi film industry but it is becoming a one man industry with only films of Diljit Dosanjh taking an opening at the boxoffice. The top five openers in history are now all Diljit Dosanjh starrers Sardaarji, Jatt and Juliet 2, Punjab 1984, Disco Singh and Jatt and Juliet.

Sardaarji Continues Phenomenal Run On Day Two

Sardaarji continued its phenomenal run on day two as it grossed around 2.75 crore nett across India with the business in East Punjab actually growing from day one which is a surprise as after a the historic first day the collections would have been expected to drop.

The film has had a huge release at multiplexes and this may be the reason for the solid growth in Punjab on day two as the multiplexes grow where as the single screens don't repeat the first day first show collections. There opening two days has seen business which is double any Punjabi film before it..

The film has an open run till Bajrangi Bhaijaan which gives huge potential in terms of lifetime business. The Hindi film Second Hand Husband may get a better response in Punjab but it should not affect Sardaarji too much as long as Monday holds strong.

Sardaarji Sets New Benchmarks For The Punjabi Film Industry

Sardaarji set new benchmarks for the Punjabi film industry with extraordinary collections over the weekend. The weekend has seen all records smashed for Punjabi films with the weekend business going over 8.25-8.50 crore nett across India. It has smashed opening records wherever a Punjabi releases be it Chandigarh, Delhi or even Aurangabad. The Sunday collections went to a huge 3.25 crore nett.

To put into perspective the weekend business of the film is that around 15 Punjabi films had released this year before Sardaarji and the combined LIFETIME business of these films across India is 6 crore nett. This is 25% less than the WEEKEND business of Sardaarji

The weekday collections will determine how big the film eventually becomes but it is pretty certain to be the second highest grossing Punjabi film of all time. It will beat films like Jatt & Juliet 2, Jatt & Juliet and Punjab 1984 and it will do so simply on the strength of a spectacular opening and huge growth in multiplex screens over the last 18 months in Punjab. Most Punjabi films are tilted towards the comedy genre while Sardaarji looked a masala entertainer and this may have added to the initual appeal of the film.

Sadaarji Emerges All Time Blockbuster

Sardaarji is an All Time Blockbuster with a super strong hold on Monday. The film is already amongst the highest grossing films of all time. The first four day business of Sardaarji is as follows.

Friday - 2,50,00,000
Saturday - 2,75,00,000
Sunday - 3,25,00,000
Monday - 2,00,00,000

TOTAL - 10,50,00,000

The film has also done phenomenal business overseas as well with a $1 million weekend. Another first for a Punjabi film. The film grossed over $400k in US / Canada.


Punjabi film ‪#‎SardaarJi‬ packs a SOLID punch in its opening weekend in Australia, New Zealand, UK. Data follows...
#SardaarJi - AUSTRALIA: Thu pre A$ 3,608, Fri A$ 75,594, Sat A$ 137,084, Sun A$ 137,099. Total: A$ 353,385 [₹ 1.73 cr]...

Sardaarji Has Extraordinary First Week

Sardaarji has had a phenomenal first week collecting aroudn 15 crore nett in week one across India. The film has also collected $1.5 million overseas giving it a Worldwide Gross of 28 crore apprx. These sort of initial numbers have never been achieved by a Punjabi film before. In fact no film has even gone close.

The film is already the second highest grossing Punjabi film in just one week and the way it held up on weekdays it is set for a very good run till the release of Bajrangi Bhaijaan in a couple of weeks time.

The timing has also been beneficial as its rare to get a three week run with no major Hindi release in the way and the film running ABCD 2 being not so strong in the circuit.

Punjabi Film Angrej Has Very Good First Day

The Punjabi film Angrej took a very strong opening recording the third highest opening ever for a Punjabi film in East Punjab for a Punjabi film after Sardaarji and Jatt & Juliet 2 while the All India collections were the fourth highest ever after Sardaarji, Jatt & Juliet 2 and Punjab 1984.

The all India collections were 1.15 crore nett appx making it the sixth film to cross the 1 crore nett mark though business is at higher levels now with Sardaaji crossing 2 crore nett. It is the highest opening ever for a film not featuring Diljit Dosanjh in the main lead. The film grossed more than double the new Hindi release Drishyam which fared very poorly in the circuit.

Angrej should consolidate over the weekend and go on to do very good business as early reports are positive for the film. .

Punjabi Film Angrez Is A Blockbuster

The Punjabi film Angrej has emerged a blockbuster as it recorded collections of 3.75 crore nett in East Punjab and 30 lakhs nett plus in the rest of India for a total of 4 crore nett plus.

The opening in East Punjab was the third best ever and it should have done more than 3.75 crore nett over the weekend but hit capacity problems on Sunday as could not grow that much as screens space was also taken by Drishyam, Bajrangi Bhaijaan and Baahubali (Hindi). The film was house full in practically all multiplexes of Punjab on Sunday. The release was limited outside East Punjab with even Delhi city having just a few shows.

The film has strong reports and is sure to hold strong on Monday and should go on to reach the 10 crore nett bennchmark in East Punjab. The collections may even go close to Friday figures looking at the Monday morning collections.
