Vikram Vedha starring Hrithik Roshan and Saif Ali Khan released today. Film has considerable amount of pre release buzz and good reviews have helped the film to multiply the noise.
Film released in 4000 plus screens in India and 1600 plus screens overseas. It’s massive release for a film of this genre and it is because of huge cast. Film is expected to created some ripples at box office.
2 hour 39 minutes
As we predicted last night film managed to sell 65,000 tickets in national multiplex chains and 1.50 lacs tickets all over India by Thursday midnight. This was just better than Laal Singh Chaddha and 30% less than Bhool Bhullaiya 2.
Thursday Midnight for FRIDAY in National Chains:
Today film opened to strictly average numbers with opening ranging from 20% at best places and lower at most places. Film is expected to grow from evening onwards but then growth didn’t come across the board. Problem is mass pockets did not been respond which was strange for the genre. Lack of one chartbuster song has kept the sizeable audience away.
As per early estimates, film collected 11.50-12 cr nett day one which is strictly average day one. Film was expected to collect lot more than that considering release size and reviews.
Film needs massive jumps over weekend for an ideal 45 cr nett weekend if not 50 cr nett otherwise it will be tough going ahead. Tomorrow is the key!
