Baazaar Leads the new releases
Baazaar yesterday shocked everyone when it opened to mere 5-10% occupancy in the morning and it was being traced at 1 1-1.5 cr opening day. However film picked up after noon shows.
The film benefited from a better reviews and better WOM than the opening. The shocking opening was due to less promotions and many people did not actually know the release date of the film. And second reason is the cluttered release there were around 6 more Hindi films and 3 English films which released yesterday.
The film opening day figures are still very low for some circuits like in Delhi and UP is just managed to rake in 50 Lakhs and in East Punjab just about 20 lakhs. Mumbai however did decent collections of about 1.25 crores.
Other Releases of the week are washout on Day 1. The figures are given below.
- 5 weddings – 10 Lakhs
- Chal Jaa Bapu – Less than 1 Lakh
- Dussera – 2 Lakhs
- Gaon the village no more – A Few Thousands
- Kaashi – 20 Lakhs
- The Journey of Karma – less than 5 Lakhs.
- Baazaar – 3.07 Crores
