Akshay Kumar, Akshay Kumar Baby, Baby collection, Baby, Baby Akshay Kumar, Baby movie, baby box office collections Akshay Kumar’s ‘Baby’ box office collections are not going to break any collections records, it is clear, except perhaps some of the actor’s own ‘smaller’ ones. (Bollywood Hungama).

Superstar Akshay Kumar starrer ‘Baby’ box office collections had an average opening, generating Rs 9.3 crore. According to early reports, the ‘Baby’ movie did well in major cities and this was reflected in its multiplex business takes.

‘Baby’ did well on the weekends too with Rs 11.17 on Saturday and Rs 15.60 crore on Sunday, capping the opening weekend box office collections at  Rs 36.07 crore. What is more, what with the extended weekend running into Monday, the movie’s box office collections are certain to rise.

But ‘Baby’ box office collections failed to reach Rs 100 crore mark in Week 1 crossed the Rs 100 crore mark in spite of having an extended four-day weekend after its release. As expected, the movie has done good business but could have done better with the kind of all around reviews it received.

 

 

With Rs 63.82 crore  from the opening week, ‘Baby’ looks to cross the lifetime box office collections of 2014 release ‘Entertainment’, which made Rs 72.02 crore. But it remains to be seen whether the movie can become the first film to enter the Rs 100 core club in 2015 and mint more money than Akshay’s last year release ‘Holiday – A Soldier Is Never Off Duty’ (Rs 112.45 crore).

Here’s what trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted on ‘Baby’ box office collections on first week:

‘Baby’ movie is Akshay Kumar’s ninth biggest opening day grosser in a list topped by his 2012 release ‘Rowdy Rathore’ (Rs 15.10 crore), ‘Boss’ (Rs 14.5 crore) and Housefull 2 (Rs 14 crore). in 2014, his two movies – ‘Holiday – A Soldier Is Never Off Duty’ and ‘Entertainment’ –  also opened well at Rs 12.18 crore and Rs 11.57 crore respectively.

Read: ‘Baby’ movie review ‘Baby’ box office collections might not have been earth-shattering, but the business will definitely pick up with the extended weekend ahead because of the Republic Day. Here’s what Adarsh tweeted on ‘Baby’ box office collections on the opening day:

Neeraj Pandey-directed ‘Baby’ has garnered good reviews from critics and the word of mouth publicity too has been positive. Also, expectations have been at an all-time high after the first lot of releases this year failed to make any impact at the box office.

Film distributor Akshaye Rathi tweeted that ‘Baby’ has had a solid opening and the movie’s business will grow with a fantastic word of mouth.

‘Baby’ marks the reunion of director Neeraj Pandey and actor Akshay Kumar, after their earlier success ‘Special 26’.

          Baby is an outstanding achievement by an Indian director. This movie is the best movie ever in this genre. Hats off to Neeraj Pandey He is India's best director. and three cheers to Superstar Akshay Kumar for a restrained but powerhouse performance. Every department of this movie is superb. Be it direction , acting by an ensemble cast, editing, story, screenplay, cinematography, everything is superb. The word of mouth is fantastic and even the critics rating are great too. This is cinema at its best. Baby is not against Muslims as some vested interests are trying to make believe people who have not viewed the movie. It is against terrorism. In fact there are several Muslims shown as heroic and patriotic. Danny Denzongpa plays Firoz, who heads the secret mission, is a Muslim. A young muslim boy shows up the courage to expose the terrorists, and is appreciated by Akshay Kumar. The film is not even anti stan and has several stani artists. This technically brilliant movie which is the best ever in this genre should get its due and be appreciated. Baby should be given a TAX-FREE status by the Indian government. This should be the appeal of all Indians.

                Baby's box office collection will definitely grow because mouth publicity matters more than its 1st day collection to reach 100 cr. Club......

                            Akshay kumar sir is the most versatile actor from lead role actor in bollywood. ..only the fan following is not much...& choosing of film is not so good...bt baby is best.......he is perfect in action, comedy, flirting, negative role, romance. ....only lack of fan

                              This is a great movie. Director's who are happy to make highest grossing movie should learn from Neeraj Pandey the pion required for making a movie. Hats off to Neeraj and Akshay for superb 3 hrs pure entertainment
