Rocky Handsome Saturday Box Office Collection
John Abraham starrer Rocky Handsome released today, and the film had a fair opening of around 25-30% with box office collections of INR Rs 1.50 crore nett apprx.
The opening morning collections of the film were the second best of the year after Airlift. However, the film has benefitted from the holiday for Good Friday. Analysts suggest that for a holiday, the numbers were not upto par. The film has to pull through very well at the end to set a good total. Experts suggest that the film is unlikely to have more growth on the second day as the first day being a holiday, saw a high opening. Well, the coming days will give a clearer picture of how the film has fared.
The film also stars Shruti Hassan and Diya Chalwad in key roles. It is helmed by Nishikant Kamat who also plays the villain in the film. While critics have not really panned the movie, still very few people look to be willing to make the trip to the theatre. While the ongoing cricket T20 World Cup can be blamed for the lack of customers at the turnstiles, the lack of depth in the movie is equally to blame.
Rocky Handsome is targeted towards single screen theaters and other small centers as Batman Vs Superman will take better occupancy in multiplexes. John Abraham starrer has opened to mixed reviews, but mostly good ones which has helped in attracting the viewers. Good word of mouth has increased the footfalls in the evening and night shows.
