With Shamshera, Ranbir Kapoor is making comeback to cinemas after 4 years and YRF’s biggest bet after a few successive flops. Let’s dig in and find out about the first day numbers, the buzz around the film and the number of tickets sold in advance, keep reading!
This film is creating a lot of buzz online and from Bandra to Juhu, probably in Andheri (only west in YRF lane). The truth is the majority of the audience is waiting for reviews to come back as advances don’t suggest any urgency to watch the film on day one.
Smaller towns are far from satisfactory in advances and even metros are less than Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 and Jugjugg Jeeyo but a little higher than Samrat Prithviraj.
The only metric to gauge real buzz is to just walk to any cinema and at the ticket counter ask anyone. In the case of Shamshera, the response is that Ranbir Kapoor is a star but he is a youth icon, in this period film with the beard and that’s an initial deterrent especially when promo of his other film Brahmastra is out in younger look, far bigger film and cast with his better half, Alia Bhatt.
Tickets sold in advance
Opening day number:
12.75-15.25 cr nett (depending on advances tomorrow and spot bookings)
We are going to put our words and numbers at stake but don’t pay attention to the 18-20 cr nett number for day one as it’s unnecessary pressure on film and stars.
Stay tuned to Box Office Worldwide for the first review of film and the box office numbers!
