URI - The Surgical Strike 2nd Friday (8th Day) Box Office Collection, Simply Unprecedented!

URI - The Surgical Strike is simply on an unprecedented run at box office despite entering second week. Film has not only showed hold on 2nd Friday but also registered growth from 1st Thursday. This is absolute rarity.

Drop from 1st Friday is also absolute minimal. At places business on 2nd Friday is better than 1st Friday. URI has collected an approx 7.6 crore nett on day 8. This is bigger than many big releases in the past. Film may have an extra-ordinary second week now.

Simmba has shown further drop on 4th Friday (22nd day) at box office. Thus, film has now very very remote chance of touching 250 crore mark in India. Realistically 245 crore mark is still a possibility and for that film needs to grow big on 4th Saturday and 4th Sunday.

Simmba has collected an approx 80 lakh nett on day 22. Film total collection currently stands at approx 233.25 crore nett. Film will touch 236 crore nett by the end of fourth weekend. Film should touch 238-239 crore nett by the end of week four.

After an impressive performance in Uri: The Surgical Strike. Vicky Kaushal will be next seen in a high concept horror film along with Bhumi Pednakar.  This film will be the directorial debut of Bhanu Pratap Singh. 

The reports say that Vicky has been shooting for the film for over a month and a major part of the film has been completed. It will be a 15 day schedule for both Vicky and Bhumi. The shoot of the film is scheduled to wrap by next month so that the release of the film can be done in the second half of the year. 

Unlike other typical horror films that are shot at haunted houses, this film revolves around a ship that lie static in a beach. Speculations say that this film will be shot in a tight budget and is not heavily depended on VFX. The major part of the horror sequences will be made with the help of background music and innovative choreography.  Also, the post production is expected to not be long.

Why Cheat India Friday (1st Day) Box Office Collection, poor start!

Be the first to comment!
Why Cheat India had a poor start to box office campaign on opening Friday (1st day). Film now needs miraculous growth to have any chance of surviving at box office. Film is also facing the URI wave at box office and has become second choice for movie goers.

Why Cheat India has collected an approx 1.7 crore nett on day one. Film will need a jump in the region of 100% or so on Saturday. A 40-50% growth on day 2 means film will emerge as a flop at box office.

Emraan Hashmi poor run at box office continues. Honestly he has very little fan following in class audiences and Why Cheat India is a film for multiplexes. Only positive word of mouth would have helped the film cause. As far as word of mouth is concerned, initial reports are mixed.

45 Most Awaited Bollywood (Hindi) Movies of 2019
