Shootout At Wadala, a gangster saga directed by Sanjay Gupta, completed its 2 Week’s successful run at the Domestic Box Office yesterday. Throughout its 2nd Week, the movie maintained a steady pace at the Box Office, despite facing competition from the zom-com Go Goa Gone and Karan Johar’s venture Gippi.

After a whooping 45.80 Crores collection in its opening week, the movie added more 11.35 Crores in its kitty in Week 2. This John Abraham starrer now stands at a Domestic total of about 57.15 Crores at the Box Office.

The film’s income somehow managed to stand satisfactorily but after being labeled as the year’s next 100 crore club enthusiast, the film failed to live up to that hype. Trade Anlysts had roared that the film will definitely reach 100 crore bench with such a power stacked story and strong performances, yet the claims are going the flaccid way now with 100 crores seeming like a distant dream.




  1. Shootout at Wadala has done tremendous business. You cannot expect 100 crores because:
    1. Its is an Adults film so children cannot see so lot of adults who want to see, cannot see as their children cannot come along. That halves the revenue of the films there itself.
    2.The gangster genre has never earned like a blockbuster. It may be successful but never a blockbuster. A lot of people do not like this genre.
    3. If there is too much bad language and violence then overseas audiences and multiplex audiences stay away.And to top it it was released on 1700 screens which is what is almost half of what…. let say Ek tha Tiger got.

    But still the film has done good business domestically …especially in single screens theaters and even overseas it is a success which is very rare.
    So it is too much to expect the film to be a 100 crore blockbuster with all this.
