Three Idiots : All IZZ Extremely Well
Excellent opening of Three Idiots is old news now. Opening in the range of 70 – 100% was given, And this sort of opening owe more weightage if volume of screenings is huge (1400+). Well this range was way before expected and is now evident at majority of centers, Now biggest question is that weather single screens/multiplexes at interiors opened to similar response ? Well this is just Friday and its 1:46 PM at the moment. Bookings of first show is over and if I check some figures from Ludhiana, Chandigarh, Ambala, Panipat, Karnal, Meerut and Saharanpur, Occupancy is in range of 45 – 80% which can simply be considered as excellent as this is just first day first show. Three Idiots as a product can be considered as unbelievable and incredible consistent quality and entertaining product from Hirani. If MBBS was Ace product, LRMB was also Ace and Now Three idiots again is also Ace with Ace Khan itself. Boxoffice aside, Three idiots will also be remembered as Iconic movie from Ace Khan and Brilliant Hirani.
Avatar showed highly consistent collections(High end) at 3D screens over weekdays. But other screens for English and Hindi versions both underperformed during weekdays. First week Collections for both versions are in range of 21-22 Crore (Lower if compared to 2012). Second Friday opened to rocking response.
Rocket singh is almost DONE in second week. Collections were all time low throughout week in range of 20-30%. Second week contributes in range of 5 Crore taking its Two weeks total to approx. 19.5 Crore.
Paa performed rock steady business over third week (8.5 Crore) taking its three weeks total to 38.5 Crore. But Paa will face tough time from here on as fourth week screenings are 80% lower than third week as Three Idiots occupied most of screens. Nothing much significant will add from here on (Unless it regain screenings next week again).
