Tubelight Box Office Verdict: Hit or Flop

Tubelight Box Office Verdict: Hit or Flop: Salman Khan’s latest release Tubelight has failed at the box office. The film will cause heavy losses to the distributors and exhibitors. In this report, we are going to check out the economics of the film.

Tubelight was made on the budget of 100 crores excluding Salman Khan’s fee. Another 55 cores can be added as his market value. The producer sold the Indian theatrical rights at a massive amount of 132 crores. Digital rights of the film were sold at a record price too. So the pre-release recovery was phenomenal. (It can go further high as recovery from some sources is not added yet)


  • Production Cost: 80 cr
  • P&A: 20 cr
  • Total: 100 cr


  • All India Theatrical Rights: 134 cr
  • Satellite and Digital Rights: 92 cr
  • Music Rights: 20 cr
  • Overseas Rights: 38 cr
  • Total: 284 cr

Now it is clear that producers have already earned heavy profits from the film. However, distributors are going to lose a huge amount as the recovery could be less than 70 crores. Some of the individualย distributors may have lost the income of their lifetime and some will have to shut down their business forever. In overseas, things are worse as the lifetime collection will not even touch $10 million.

Overall Tubelight is a flop in India and disaster in overseas. Salman Khan has earned huge profits from the film so he can compensate the distributors just like SRK did during the release of Dilwale.

Also, tell us what are your viewsย about Tubelight verdict hit or flop in the comments section.

      Tere baap se bolnaa ki Distributors ka loss ka 10% bear kar le.
      Ab to BOLLYARENA ne bhi maan liya ki TUBELIGHT is a universally flop movie.

      • This Patriotic movie is strictly not for the sanghis/Bhakts who don’t consider India independent before 2014. This movies depicts The New India in an era being guided by values of Greatest leaders like Mahatma Gandhi. When our Army were showing their First Valour on Indo-china border separated from their families. Most of the Sanghis celebrated when Om Puri Ji died. I watched 2nd day First Show. This Tubelight is such a beautiful Story.

    • bhai 50-50 ka share hota hai distributor and theator owner mein…250 pa hit hai

      • agar aisa hai to dilwale kaise semi hit hogaya ha ha ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Šuspe vi to distribution ko 50% lose hua tha vul gaya ha ha

      What does @bollyarena mean by saying like Dilwale? The topic here is Tubelight not Dilwale, and Dilwale did not lose the distributors about 80cr which Tubelight has done!

      Dilwale time no one has as expecting it to do 400cr but this was a potential of doing 400cr, now it won’t even do 150cr that’s a disaster worldwide!

    • Success of Tubelight has that Ass burn effect on Sanghi Radicals who are judging the movie in only 4 days of its run shows the desparation. The Success of *TUBELIGHT* shall be a *Lesson for Life* *The Little Boy* – How to make a movie a commercial Blockbuster at a Low Budget yet *Massive Return on Investment*.
      *Bahubali* – How to make a Movie a *Realistic Blockbuster* without Putting any fake mythology and CGI/VFX
      *Bhakts* – How to love INDIA 1st before harping about ur *Saffron Radicalism* & hating Indians. (Those didn’t learn from Dangal)

      • wow.. well said.. since the haters here are brain deads.. they won’t even understand what you wrote :D

      • There is only one religion which promotes filth, which is created on d basis of killing and maligning other faiths..sanghis are new breed but this 1400 year old religion which has not given a single innovation accept submitting oneself to evil god to kill innocent human beings

    Let’s Wait for What will He Actually Do with The Distributors…………..

  3. FLOP!!
    Eid was really wasted with this crap!!
    AJ Baadshaho or AK TEPK should have been given this Eid Slot!! Not this waste,i regretted wasting about 3hrs of my precious time watching this movie!!

    • But still Bhaijaan Flop will be higher than both the smaller superstars Akki Ajay highest grosser. Tubelight will still cross RR 133 and Chewinggham Returns 141 at any cost!!
      TzH will shut everyone ๐Ÿ‘„

      • You really think Tubelight will beat Rowdy rathode and Singham return collections?

        • This FIlm isโ‚ฌ harmful for thosโ‚ฌe Bhaktsโ‚ฌ who award certificaresโ‚ฌ of nationaliโ‚ฌsm to the Patriotic indian citizens

      • Now iq dekho comparing 2012 film with 2017 film
        RR nonholiday release 2000 screens
        Still 134 Cr blockbuster
        Tubelight 4500 screen 4 days holiday
        Still chasing 140 Cr flop

        • Ofcourse tubelight is flop movie..

          Complete this movie with only aamir nd srk movies.

          Akshay ki abhi itni aukat nai he k wo salman ki movies k sath compare ki jaye..

          Tere akshay ki highest grosser top 3 equal to bb..

          Aur tere akshay ki highest grosser top 10 or 15 worldwide still not equals to master piece “dangal”

      • @BHAIJAAN Abe kya fayda us heigh box office collection ka jis se kisi ke ghar me chula jalna band ho jaye Business pe tale lag jayen.
        Abe jitna Akshay ki film ka budget hota hai us se jada to industry ko loss hga #Tubelight se samja

  4. Don’t know much about the economics of this movie but even if it is a disaster many would be reluctant to call it the same and just call it a flop due to Salman’s presence.

    If the loss of distributor is so high then why it is not being called a disaster like Bombay Velvet was given the same verdict ?

    • abe to abhi tak collections hua hai wo tera baaap lake diya kya bhikari sale…..
      khud ki aukad nahi 100 rupaye kamane ki dusre ke bare me bina soche burayi karne chale…
      comment for all @lol chutiyes
      135(BUDGET)X2 = 260 – 267(LIFE TIME COLLECTION) = 7 CR. (EXTRA)…

    • These Bollywood haters or khan haters are the same morons who criticize the industry for inserting see Love Story, Item songs, fight scenes. Tubelight surely has its dues left on them.
      Stunning Effort. #Blockbuster

  5. That means Shivaay was far better than Tubelight ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ despite Flop at 100 cr but At least little profit was made and many people still enjoyed the movie unlike Fusslight.
    And Shivaay distributor have not closed their business for life๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

    • Stop insultinh Shivaay. Ajay sir is a better mindset director than Kabir Khan ,Billicine saying Kabir failed as a writter??๐Ÿ˜‚ still supporting bhaitards thats why i like Bollywood arena. Very Bold and fearless. Billicine dont have guts to declare it Flop!!
