Raja Natwarlal starring Emraan Hashmi and Humaima Malick is released all across India today. Film has taken slow start at ticket counters on 1st day and it is little surprising considering Emraan Hashmi has good fan following. Seems film buzz is low, plus music was average which has impacted on the film business. Still these are early days as today is working day and hope film picks up on later part of the day as weekend is approaching. Raja Natwarlal has managed good screen count which is a positive for it and has potential.
Raja Natwarlal has opened to 25% in Delhi and Gurgaon in Morning shows. Occupancy in Mumbai is around 20-25% which is also on lower side. Overall film occupancy for Morning shows is in the range of 20-25%. Single Screen is just about to start and hope that film takes better opening there than Multiplexes.
Emraan Hashmi last few releases have been below par and looks like it has affected his new release also. Otherwise film should have taken better start on first day. His films generally opens well in single screen and let's wait for the report from there which is just about started.
Overall looking at early start trends, film will depend on content power and if it is good then expect business to see growth on Saturday and Sunday.
Occupancy for Morning Shows -
Delhi - 25%
Gurgaon - 25%
Mumbai - 20-25%
