Housefull 3 is taken one of the biggest start of the year so far. In fact it is only behind FAN when samples are compared for the day. This is extremely good news considering Friday (1st day) being normal working day.
Film has opened to 25-30% occupancy in Morning shows which is strictly decent. After that film has shown good jump in Noon to record occupancy of around 35-40%. Occupancy is pretty good because of working day and also because film is getting biggest release in India.
Good news is Housefull 3 has shown big jump from Evening onward as family audiences are coming out in numbers to watch the flick. From whatever samples we have film has recorded a very good 60% occupancy in Evening and Night shows as weekend is approaching.
We are still awaiting major single screen datas and reports from interiors. Though it is too early to make any prediction for the day, but looking at early trends film should collect in the region of 15 crore nett. These are estimation from samples we have. Actual will vary depending on how film performs in interiors and single screens. If film performs well there then actual may be higher than the estimates or accordingly.
