Gabbar is Back has done very well in 1st weekend at box office. Film has collected an approx 39.35 crore nett and thus taken the biggest opening of the year so far. Film has collected around 15 crore nett on Sunday which is very good numbers. Sunday registered a growth of around 30%+ from Saturday (2nd day) which is pretty significant.
Film started the day 3 with occupancy in around 40-45% occupancy. After that film showed big growth in Noon shows to register occupancy around 65%. Film hold well from Evening onward with occupancy near about 60% and that is mainly due to the fact that today is Holiday because of Buddha Purnima. Otherwise drop on Sunday Evening and Night shows could have been more.
Film has so far done ok business. It has now real chance to come triumph at box office because of the controlled budget. Film will most probably hold well on Monday (4th day) as it is Holiday [Buddha Purnima] in most parts of India. Real test will start from Tuesday when real weekdays will start. Then only we will know the real audience word of mouth. So far looking everything good for the film.
