Kaabil has taken a sedate start at box office on Wednesday (first day) as samples for Morning shows are just coming in. Film start is neither bad nor great. It somewhere in between. There is enough time left in the day to grow from here on.
Only concern is Kaabil is released in limited screens and hence, need higher occupancy to put up a respectable first day figure at box office. Film is expected to grow big in later half of the day as tomorrow is National Holiday and family audiences will come out in big numbers.
Kaabil has opened to 30-35% occupancy in Morning shows. Hope film grows from here on with each passing show. Film is also facing tough battle with Raees whose screening is bigger and buzz also right now. Kaabil will do well till Thursday.
Real test will be on 1st Friday and 1st Monday. Good news is Kaabil is already a profitable venture for makers as made on controlled budget. Only distributors are concerned right now and need a nett collection of 85 crore nett or more for them to be also in safe zone. Stay tuned for more updates through the day.
