While a lot has been said in the media, blogs and social networking websites about how the collections of Ra.One compare to those of Bodyguard, we, at Koimoi.com, believe that the numbers should do the talking.

In fact, in our review of Ra.One, we had clearly mentioned all the pros and cons of the film as well as the business we expected the film to do. You might disagree with our conclusions, but then we had predicted that Ra.One will prove to be a profitable fare as back as September 19 this year (more than a month before the film’s release). We do not claim to be correct all the time; we just strive to be honest.

Since Shah Rukh Khan’s Ra.One has another two days of its first weekend left, it will take a while for a clearer picture to emerge. For now, here’s a round up of the first three days’ collections (approx. all India-net) of the top grossing films of 2011 (Bodyguard, Ready and Singham) and their comparison to the first three days’ collections of Ra.One. Hopefully, the below numbers will clarify the situation:

3-Day Comparative Figures of Top Grossers of 2011

All India-net collection
(in Rs. crores)
Day 1 Day 2 Day 3 TOTAL
(in Rs. crores)
Ra.One 18 25 16 59
