half girl friend set for good first day. boi report

1 like 0 dislike

Half Girlfriend is looking at a good first day with collections set to be around 10 crore nett. It is the fifth best opening of the year after Bahubali (Hindi), Raees, Jolly LLB 2 and Badrinath Ki Dulhania. The film has easily beaten a bigger film like Kaabil. That film had a clash but even here with Bahubali so strong and Hindi Medium also taking up 1000 screens it was like a clash. These two factors would have hit Half Girlfriend around 10%. The collections are average in places like Mumbai city and Bangalore but has done very well in centres like Jaipur, Surat, Patna and Lucknow. Generally the A and B centres are good be it multiplexes or single screens.

The film has costs of around 50 crore including promotion and advertising and this 10 crore nett start puts it in a good position. Just normal Saturday growth will see the film become a success and if it holds Monday onward it may well even emerge a HIT

The other release Hindi Medium fared poorly with collections likely to be around 2.50 crore nett. Madaari another Irfan Khan film had opened lower at 2 crore nett but that the idea is not really to compete with that film as it was so bad but even this is not much better in terms of opening. It will need huge growth on Saturday and then Monday to be like Friday if it is to do anything at the box office. That is a big ask but has been done before
