‘Hate Story 3’ box office collections got off to a good start on opening day 1 with collections amounting to Rs 9.72 crore. The film targeted single screens in India and thus, it recorded a good occupancy rate at several places. However, multiplexes registered lower occupancy compared to single screens. On second day, box office earnings were slightly low as the movie minted Rs 8.05 crore taking the total collections to Rs 17.77 crore. At this rate, ‘Hate Story 3’ is expected to recover its cost in the opening weekend itself. The film stars Sharman Joshi, Karan Singh Grover, Zarine Khan and Daisy Shah.
In ‘Hate Story 3’, veteran film maker Vikram Bhatt is responsible for both story and screenplay. And he does a neat job at that (a few plots and sub plots notwithstanding). The story may be ‘amateurish’, but it has enough twists and turns to keep the viewer hooked. The high point of the film is that the narrative holds viewers’ attention right from the point where Karan Singh Grover’s character reveals his true intentions. And that, in a nutshell may well have been what was luring people into theatre seats in the first few days.
On day 3 ‘Hate Story’ coffers got enriched by another Rs 9.05 crore for an overall India total of Rs 26.82 crore. As this was a Sunday, clearly, the movie was getting some good word-of-mouth reviews that lured fans to theatres to check out the movie themselves. Considering ‘Hate Story 3’ had opened to largely mixed or even negative reviews from critics, it surely is doing very well indeed.
On day 4, Hate Story 3 collections took half of previous day’s gains at Rs 4.40 crore. The total India derived collections have risen to Rs 31.22 crore. It is now clear that even though there is no movie competing with Hate Story 3, it is finding the going getting extremely tough. The chances of it lasting into the second week are slim indeed.
‘Hate Story 3’ is the third installment in the ‘Hate Story’ franchise, and in spite of no hype and big stars, the film has earned a humongous amount of money. The Vishal Pandya directed film’s trailer had received sensational response and its music was topping the charts across all mediums. The trailer, packed with steamy scenes did make many wonder how much of it would be passed by the Censor Board. However, fortunately for all concerned, the censors cleared it with a few modifications. ‘Hate Story’ series has indeed proved itself to be one of the beguiling stories coming out from Bollywood.
‘Hate Story 3’ is a movie that talks about revenge, love, lust, friendship and traces the journey of individuals in the corporate world.
