Raees has taken a sedate start at box office on Friday (3rd day) after a rollicking first two days. Even first day collection exceeded all trade expectations. Occupancy is bound to come down today. However it will again pick up in later half of the day and should go higher on Saturday and Sunday. Film is enjoying 5 day extended weekend and today collection will be lowest among all days.
Raees has open to decent 30% occupancy in Morning shows. Start is decent and if film shows good jump through the day then it should recover much ground. With such start Raees should collect double digit figure for the day hoping that film shows the necessary general trending.
Raees initial word of mouth is positive. Film is working much better in single screens. Hope film has enough steam left to do wonders in multiplexes also in coming days. If it does then it will be simply unstoppable in coming days. Only concern is film is clashing with another biggie in Kaabil whose initial word of mouth is also positive.
Today is one of the crucial test for the film and hope it passes it with flying colors.
