Dishoom movie starring John Abraham’s and Varun Dhawan spotted collecting plenty of mixed responses on Saturday. The movie had does suffer a significant loss because of unprecedented entry of monsoon in India. The film made on speculative business was a speculation itself. Produced with a monster budget of 84 crore rupees, the flick stands as one of the most expensive affairs for the entire industry. Many other films had released this year with more than 50 crore rupees budget.
On day 3, first few shows reported 60 percent occupancy and expectations are Dishoom will earn about Rs 15 crore. What is working in Dishoom’s favour is that it faces hardly any competition at the box office. Salman Khan’s Sultan and Rajinikanth’s Kabali have already run out of steam. With no other release this weekend, Dishoom is getting all the eyeballs.
Madari has released a week ago but didn’t receive much response. 3000 was a significant number for the movie as many other famous actors had suffered to get this much wide release. During the opening day, occupancy in morning shows remains quite significant. During the morning, occupancy of around 30-35% observed throughout the India. The figure was not great but substantial as the night shows on Friday somehow reaches 50% occupancy.
The fill out rate was similar on a successive day. The film remains popular among the teenagers. Despite getting protests at various levels by film critics, around 10% increase was observed on the 1st day of the weekend. Other than Tiger Shroff’s Baaghi which opened marginally better than Dishoom, the other big openers of 2016 were Sultan, Fan, Airlift and Housefull 3. They were all bigger films in terms of scale and star cast as well.
