Vikram Vedha starring Hrithik Roshan and Saif Ali Khan released today. Film has considerable amount of pre release buzz and good reviews have helped the film to multiply the noise.
Film released in 4000 plus screens in India and 1600 plus screens overseas. It’s massive release for a film of this genre and it is because of huge cast. Film is expected to created some ripples at box office.
On Friday film opened to strictly average numbers with opening ranging from 20% at best places and lower at most places. Film was expected to grow from evening onwards but then growth didn’t come across the board. This was the story all weekend and as film grew only marginally 15% on Saturday and Sunday.
Film collected below par 10.58 cr nett , 12.51 cr nett and 13.85 cr nett on Friday, Saturday and Sunday respectively. Film had disappointing weekend of 36.94 cr nett and this was shocking considering rather good reviews and decent word of mouth.
Film collected 1 million $, 950 k $ and 713 k $ over the weekend in overseas with total of 2.67 million $ (21.74 cr). Overseas total is fair considering numbers in India and post pandemic times.
Today film was expected to hold but again film disappointed with rather below average hold. Film suffers due to festivities for sure but still numbers should have been better. Film was expected to score at least 7-8 cr nett number on Monday with 30% or so drop but that didn’t happen.
Film dropped by 40-45% on day 4 which means film will struggle to touch 6 cr nett and it seems like a number in the range of 5.30-5.60 cr nett.
Now even Dussera festivities can not save the film much.
Film has 4 – day total of 42.50 cr nett and now jump on Wednesday – Thursday can take it to maximum 57-60 cr nett at max.
