Singham Returns has taken one of the all time opening on Independence Day and recorded the best opening of 2014. It is also one of the best of all time. That is outstanding considering film had around 3600 screen release. Early estimates suggest film first day collection is hovering in the region of unprecedented 30 crore nett mark in 3600 screens. Actuals are awaited and who knows it may even come higher. Had film got on par screens with Dhoom 3 then it might have even challenged that.
Ajay Devgn is back as 'Bajirao Singham' and is roaring from North to South India. Kareena Kapoor as Lady Singham is riot. Rohit Shetty is a Brand in himself now and 'Singham Returns' assures that. Audiences are just loving the film and reports are excellent. Unprecedented weekend is on cards now.
Mumbai, Rajasthan, CI, Gujarat, CP Berar are earth shattering. Even Northern Part is humongous and may be record breaking at places. East is also huge, with South India being very good. Few circuits records that set by Dhoom 3 and Kick are bound to be broken. Rajasthan and Mumbai looks most likely the starting list.
Film opened to Bumper collection in Morning shows with 70-75% occupancy registered. After that film is just unstoppable with average occupancy remained 90% or even more through the day.
Trade was expecting Singham Returns to open big, but collections are just mind blowing and much better and bigger than expected region. Actually it is dream opening with almost all major shows reported Housefull from Noon onward. Before film release everyone is predicting film will do business in the range of 140-170 crore nett. But looking at first day numbers and audience report even 200 crore nett is a possibility. All depends on how film holds well on Saturday and Monday for that.
