Total of Eight films received nationwide this year with Waar the only savior. Movie broke all previous records and emerged All Time Blockbuster while others all went either flat or average except Chambaili which not only recovered costs but was also first political thriller getting Hit status. Zinda Bhaag also showed good trend but only for two Weeks and fell hugely from Week three Onwards. Main Hoon Shahid Afridi got huge relase size with excellent buzz but movie couldn’t create even single record, movie got much more screens and shows than Bol released three year back but then too day one numbers came lower than Bol. Biggest disappointment of year was Ishq khuda which was a total washout. Movie got good release but couldn’t even start.
As far as Overseas is concerned none made mark at boxoffice. Waar was given excellent release size in UAE but movie got flat after Weekend and was removed from most theaters after Week Two not only this but Movie ran in theaters for only 21 Days. Disaster
Zinda Bhaag released in UAE this Weekend but screen size and number of shows are less. Movie won’t make any impact at this market.
Waar released in UK this Week with good release size. Movie has opened well like UAE, but movie will have to sustain after the Weekend to get decent numbers.
Except Waar none made impact either in Pakistan or Overseas. Below is the detailed table of 2013 boxoffice..
