|Akshay and Jacqueline in a still from brothers|
Akshay Kumar and Siddharth Malhotra starrer Brothers went down a bit on Wednesday at India Box office
Brothers Sixth Day Box Office Collections:
64.24 Crore nett ( Trade Figure)
On Its First Wednesday Brothers went down by around 12% as compared to its First Tuesday.
Post 6 Days brothers is 9th Highest Grossing movie of 2015 and has removed badlapur from the top 10 bollywood movies of 2015 list
While the fall is regular as seen on weekdays the damage has been done by big fall on Monday.
However the big opening has ensured that it will sail through and will be 2nd or 3rd highest first week ever in Akshay Kumar’s career
Brothers had come with huge expectations as it was one of rare two hero movie and had a very good release date and this meant that this number is coming as bit of dampener to trade and this has turned trade against Fox Star which are giving out a chunk of big budget losses including the horrific Bombay Velvet.
Producers are already profitable in this venture and it is Fox Star which has to do the recovery.
Budget: 82 Crore All inclusive
With brothers what most exhibitors have been reporting that while youth have flocked the cinemas and have given the opening the families have stayed away from the movie.
Mostly most of the trade has been complaining is that movie is too gruesome and thus have alienated the female audiences and the family.
While appeal to youth ensures that movie takes an opening it is the family audiences which ensures that movie has a longer run which is missing here.
Another aspect which is surprising to trade is that Brothers is a remake of Warrior and Warrior though was a critically acclaimed movie but was a disaster at the box office.
If you are buying rights and remaking the movie than at least invest in a commercially viable project is the refrain being heard in trade
First Weekend box office collections are 2nd Highest of 2015 behind only Bajrangi Bhaijaan and ahead of ABCD 2, Gabbar is Back and Baby
First Weekend is the biggest ever weekend for Akshay Kumar ahead of rowdy rathore which had collected 46.04 Crore.

Brothers is the most expensive movie for Akshay Kumar as the budget is more than both Baby and Gabbar is Back.

Brothers Economics: (Profit and Loss Analysis):
Producers of Brothers are already safe and have made pre release profit by selling off satellite rights and music for 42 Crores and Distribution Rights for 55 Crores.
Pre release Profit for Producers: 15 Crores
India and overseas rights for brothers have been sold to Fox Star at 55 Crores.
Fox Star would need to recover this purely from Theatrical Business in india and overseas to have a recovery.
