Massy comedies have done tremendous business lately. ‘Housefull 4’ and ‘Total Dhamaal’ exceeded expectations at box office. Now multi starrer ‘Pagalpanti’ released this week.
Pagalpanti didn’t have great pre release buzz and not a single song became chartbuster. Film was a wide release across 2800 screens. But film opened to dismal numbers in morning though it did improve in evening but it was far from good.
Film struggled against Hollywood film ‘Frozen 2’ and at premium multiplexes it was behind that film. The movie collected 5.10 cr nett on day one which is below par considering cost and cast. Film collected 6.30 cr nett which was slim growth of 20% but it needed minimum 60-70% growth. Movie collected 8.35 cr nett on Sunday with decent growth.
It has weekend total of 19.75 cr nett. Film was expected to drop and it dropped big on Monday as it collected 2.50 cr nett. The movie has 4 day total of 22.25 cr nett and it will end week one around 28 cr nett.
Pagalpanti is a big flop as it will struggle to cross even 35 cr nett lifetime which is too bad considering it’s high cost.
Looks like a big flop on the cards!!!
