Once In A Blue Moon It Happens at Box-office
Folks, BO report after almost 1.5 months. I will try to analyze numbers for movies released in this period, in coming days. Today I managed to judge OUATIM numbers. Movie has got tremendous positive reports from critics as well as public. At box-office, After pretty good opening day (6-6.25 Crore), movie picked up well on Saturday at metros multiplexes (Specially NCR Multiplexes where business shoot-up by 125% on Saturday) and end up cooking 7.25+ Crore Nett at box-office. But it was Sunday when public comes out in large and made truly an earth shattering day for movie. Mumbai and NCR made the difference and how ? Both circuits picked up by 1.25 Crore each(from Saturday). Overall Sunday was whooping 9 – 9.25 Crore. Weekend finished in 22.25-22.75 Crore range and also found its place among well occupied movies of 2010. Overall weekend capacity was around 36-39 Crore.
Today movie holds up extremely well almost everywhere. Multiplexes dropped just 20-25% from Friday. Single screens at metros also holds up well. Delhi/UP after average start on Friday registered negligible fall today. Early estimated business on Monday should be in range of 4.5+ Crore . Overall 4 days Nett should finish at 26.75-27.25 Crore Range.
Advance bookings for Tuesday is pretty well for high end multiplexes. Looking at trending, first week should billed around 33+ Crore. This will be Ajay’s third highest first week grosser [Emraan’s highest] after Golmaal Returns(2008) and Raajneeti(2010).
