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..

*Still Counting

**Rough Estimates


  1. Sir according to reports published in most newspapers zindabhaag collected 3 crore, chambaili collected 3.5 crore and ishq khuda collected 1 crore 10 lakh according to official page of ishq khuda and it was superhit and it collected much more. Ishq khuda also recovered it’s budget and goes into profit so pls make correction.

    • Nope that’s not the case.. Figures given in paper are just to publicize movie among audiences..
      These figures are taken after getting data from leading cinemas and from other confirmed sources..
      Ishq Khuda couldn’t collect much at any center.. While figures of Chambaili and Zinda Bhaag are confirmed and official
