Raees managed to sail through, Kaabil remained strictly average at the box office.

Republic day mid-week releases Raees and Kaabil both grabbed a whole lot of attention by their over the top media coverages about the rivalry and screen count issues but only Raees got a stunning opening and easily defeated Kaabil. But as the week progressed collections of both the films became on the lower side and after the holiday’s benefit both failed to pull the audiences across the country to the theaters. Because Shah Rukh Khan is a bigger star than Hrithik Roshan, Raees got a better start though in the end Raees is a single screen masala film and Kaabil is more of a multiplex formula outing. The issue of screens was only to create hype as Raees got 3400 screens which are almost equal to massive blockbuster films of the past like PK and Bajrangi Bhaijaan to name a few while Kaabil failed to fill in its 2500 screens miserably. The day wise collections of Raees are as follows;

Wed – 20.42 cr

 Thu – 26.30 cr

Fri – 13.11 cr

Sat – 15.61 cr

Sun – 17.80 cr

Mon – 6.25 cr

Tue – 6.08 cr

Wed – 5.22 cr

Thu – 4.23 cr

Total – 115.02 cr nett. 

Raees is now the highest grossing film of Excel entertainment beating Don 2 (107.06 cr) and Talaash (95.82 cr) but as far as the budget is concerned it only manages to be a hit and continuously slowing down collections of the film suggests that it is not going to reach the 150 cr mark. In overseas it has made $10.51 million USD (71.59 cr) which is very good and it is likely to collect around $14-15 million USD in its lifetime.

Kaabil on the other hand apart from the holiday of Republic day never got the start and had very low occupancies all round the nine days and collected around 76.88 cr and definitely not going have a good second week which makes it tough to be in the high-profit zone and eventually will be an average grosser. The movie is also dull in overseas collecting only $3.5 million USD (23.86 cr) and not going to grow at all. In short, both the films are not completely accepted by the audiences in general.

Raees managed to sail through, Kaabil remained strictly average at the box office.

Dangal in its sixth week despite limited screens made 1.80 cr and took its tally to a humongous mark of 385.66 cr and looking to finish at 386.50 cr in the lifetime run which is a testimony that a great film has no limits, in overseas also the movie has crossed the magical $30 million USD (205 cr) mark and joined the elite league of Dhoom:3 and PK.
