Charan’s Dhruva Overseas Profit Loss Statement

0

Ram Charan Tej’s Dhruva, which was released in USA on December 8th 2016,had a decent run at Box-office. While in Telugu states Dhruva was an Average earner, in overseas it had relatively better run and has ended up as an above average to hit range film. However, the distributors and exhibitors in USA had still suffered “minor losses” due to the aggressive price they paid for the rights.

In terms of career,Dhruva has become a breather for Charan who was struggling to make his presence felt overthe lucrative overseas market.S even and half years after Magadheera (2009), Dhruva has become Charan’s next successful movie in USA.

Apparently, Dhruva has collected 2.2 times of his previous highest grosser “Govindudu Andarivadele”. Charan’s hard work in makeover role, proven good content and class approach had helped Dhruva to come closer to the breakeven at Box-office. Apart from above said factors, December holiday season plus distributors’ well planned schedules acted as a stimulus for Dhruva and even on “weekdays” of 1st and 2nd weeks it has performed relatively better than what similar movies do typically.

Janatha Garage which had collected $1,442,000 in its first weekend, was able to fetch another $358,000 in its full run. Dhruva had collected $940,000 in its first weekend,but was able to fetch another $533,000 in its full run. In other words,Janatha Garage was able to add only 25% of its first weekend gross to its full run, where as Dhruva has added a 56% of its first weekend gross.This proves a point that Dhruva had a “relatively” better run “after the first weekend”

In this context, the credit should go to the Dhruva distributors “Jolly Hits”. Though first time distributors,they had promoted and planned the film a lot better than some of the seasoned players in the market. Despite having average collections in first week,they did not give up, continued to holding good number of screens in week 2,3 and 4 as well.Their approach might have made a positive difference of $150K-$200K atleast.

Overall, in USA, Dhruva has collected $1,473,000 Gross and $851,000 theatrical share. After expenses deduction,the distributor share is $731,000 i.e. 4 Cr 97 lakhs INR. Thus, the USA distributor,who has bought the movie for 5.25 crores for (USA territory only),  has suffered a minor loss of 25 lakhs.

From Non-USA countries, Dhruva has fetched another 1 cr 5 lakhs INR, to make total overseas share of 6 crores.

Majnu box Office, Majnu Overseas collections

Nani’s Majnu was distributed in USA by AZIndia Media LLC. As hero Nani had scored three back to back hits, romantic entertainer Majnu was red hot in trade circles prior to its release. Nani’s Bhale Bhale Magadivoi had notched up $1.3 Million and Krishna Gadi Veera Prema Gadha and Gentlemen grossed $800K,$900K+ respectively, leaving considerable profits for all parties involved. Given that background AZIndia Media LLC had bought Nani’s next Majnu overseas distribution rights at 2.75 crores,sold to city wise exhibitors at 3-3.25 crores ratio.

But contrary to the expectations, Majnu was able to gross only $512K and a share of $181K i.e. 1 Crore 20 lakh in rupees.

USA distributor made table profits,but exhibitors have incurred losses to the tune of 55%-60% of their investment. Pre & Post release publicity by producers and USA distributor was not upto the mark. “When the distributor sold to us for premium prices,it is his fiduciary duty to market the film well.But due to inexperience or any other reasons,there was absolutely no marketing” lamented a exhibitor from mid-west who has been in business for few years.

Here is the breakdown of USA gross and share :

0

Directed by Avasarala Srinivas , Naga Shourya-Nara Rohith-Regina Cassandra starrer ‘Jyo Achyutananda’  movie was distributed in USA by the production house Sai Korrapati’s ‘Varahi chalana chithram’. ‘Jyo…’  has collected $615,000 in USA and for a mid to small budget movie, casting non-superstars, that is impressive in terms of gross. But, the other side of the coin, fate of the exhibitors’ is different.

Released on September 9th 2016, Jyo Achyutananda’s pre-release was benefited from July 29th released Pellichoopulu movie. Box-office mania created by ‘Pelli Choopulu’ in USA, had helped next release, same genre class movie ‘Jyo..’ to be sold at unreasonable prices to local city-wise exhibitors. USA distributor ‘Varahi’ sold “Jyo Achyutananda “at a ratio of $800K plus” to the local exhibitors. In few cities, where they could not get fancy offers, producer cum USA distributor ‘Varahi’ released on their own.

‘Jyo Achyutananda’ has collected a $615,000 gross i.e. $322,000 Share in USA. In INR ,USA closing share is 2 Crore 12 lakhs. 

For worldwide share calculations purpose,’Jyo..’ USA theatrical share is 2 crore 12 lakh rupees.

From Profit/loss calculation POV , ‘Jyo..’ USA exhibitors had lost 55-60% of their investment – “wherever it is sold” to local exhibitors. ‘Jyo..’ was sold at a “ratio of $800K”, collected a $322K share.

In a nutshell, producer cum distributor Mr. Sai Korrapati has walked away with solid profits, exhibitors lost heavy amounts.

NTR’s Janatha Garage, which was opened in USA with premieres on August 31st 2016, had a good run at Box-office. While in Telugu states Janatha Garage is a Blockbuster, in USA and other overseas territories it  has ended up at a super hit level – but not a blockbuster.

Janatha Garage had a great opening with all time 3rd highest premiere gross of $585,000. Despite being negated by many web reviews,this movie had continued its momentum through the long weekend to add another one million to it’s premiere gross.By first weekend ,Janatha Garage has collected a stunning $1.56 Million Gross in USA. At this rate,any other super-hit movie would have easily touched $2 Million mark (One such was NTR’s previous hit ‘Nannaku Prematho..’ which made $2.02 Million). Lack of entertainment/repeat value marred the prospects of long-run coupled with poor web publicity ‘Janatha..’ has managed to add only $225,000 in its rest of the full run – after first ‘weekend’.

When a small budgeted movie like ‘Jyo Achyutananda’ was able to run aggressive web promotion even in its second week, what stopped Janatha Garage team from doing web promotion after first weekend is big puzzle amongst NRI NTR fans we spoke with.

Overall, Janatha Garage has collected $1,784,119 Gross and $1,091,500 theatrical share in USA. After expenses deduction , the distributor share is $972,500 [6 Cr 40 Lakhs INR].

The estimated Nett profit for the overseas distributor is a cool 60 Lakhs INR.

Losses for Local Exhibitors :

This movie was sold to third party local exhibitors in one third of the areas , and remaining two third areas were distributor’s own release. Out of those third party areas, most of them ends at 20% losses due to sky-high prices. For Bay-area, a local exhibitor has bought for whopping  $170K and share is $127K-$135K and  a loss of 20%. For Virginia, an exhibitor  has bought for $110K, share is $87.5K and estimated loss is 20%.
