Badlapur has collected a good 7 crore nett on first day (Friday) at box office as per estimates. Film did relatively well in multiplexes, whereas single screens are on lower side. Badlapur started Friday with occupancy of around 25%. After that film hold well in Noon and Afternoon shows and recorded around 25-30% occupancy. Film picked up well from Evening onward and recorded occupancy of above 40% from then on.
Badlapur is made on controlled budget of around 25 crore approx. That means film is bound to recover its investment easily looking at film opening. Film has now big chance to be the first Clean Hit at box office as Baby and Roy failed to do so. Baby got close, but only achieved Semi Hit status at box office.
Badlapur might see good jump on Saturday going by the initial word of mouth. Film will have drop in collection though on Sunday because of India - South Africa cricket match and hence, Saturday is very much crucial. Overall start of Badlapur is good and hope does well through the first weekend and also through the weekdays.
