Dishoom box office collections: On a day that the monsoon chose to be perhaps the wettest of the season and that too across the country, this John Abraham starrer has logged an occupancy rate of about 25 per cent. Not the best considering that the movie was expected to really grab the imagination of the public with its standout concept and fine performances by all the actors involved including John Abraham, Jacqueline Fernandez and most of all Varun Dhawan. But hope is still floating somewhere out there in the flooded cities across India.
With cricket as the main theme and India-Pakistan rivalry as the background, the filmmakers have not left any boxes unticked as far as content and quality are concerned. They have also picked the right cast for the job. But as far as box office collections are concerned, there are no guarantees of success.
With a 25 per cent occupancy rate, Dishoom is looking at a collection in single digits if all goes right and the tickets in the right denominations, premium, outstrip the cheaper ones. Perhaps a little bit more. Dishoom is likely to get a big word of mouth booster shot on the strength of its strong content and this is also likely to give its momentum a strong push into the next week.
While the day one collections figures will no doubt be powered by the not inconsiderable number of fans of John Abraham, Varun Dhawan or even Akshay Kumar, who appears in a standout cameo sequence, it is always the post-opening weekend statistics that are under watch.
While this Friday is not the best day to judge the opening day’s collection simply because the monsoon has drenched the entire country and very few people have gone to watch the movie, preferring to stay at home, the evening shows and Saturday and Sunday are expected to fire-up the movie-lovers and send them trooping into the cinemas. Keep your fingers crossed and your eyes on this space for more.
