Badlapur box office collections, the topic of conversation for the past few weeks, have opened on a positive note today with a business of Rs 7 crore. The movie, which garnered rave reviews from the critics, has also been appreciated by the audience. In fact, both the actors Varun Dhawan and Nawazuddin Siddiqui are being applauded by one and all for stellar performances in the film. (Badlapur year’s 4th biggest opener)
Though Badlapur has opened to approximately 25-30 per cent occupancy rate across the country, reports suggest that the film will work its way steadily to a good weekend collection. The ‘A’ (adult) rated tag the film has received from the censor board will, however, surely affect collections to a certain extent. (Read: Badlapur movie review)
Overall, Badlapur, despite receiving good reviews will have to rely on good word of mouth, with box office collections expected to show a rise over the evening and night shows. However, unlike the Ranbir Kapoor- Jacquelin Fernandes starrer ‘Roy’, that featured a good opening day, ‘Badlapur’ is expected to gain strength as time passes.
With the impending Cricket World Cup and the ongoing cash crunch continuing, the scenario at the box-office scenario is definitely bleak, but exhibitors and trade analysts are still hopeful that Badlapur will give them some respite.
This year’s biggest opener is ‘Roy’ with Rs 10.40 crore, followed by Rs 9.3 crore from ‘Baby’ and Rs 7.05 crore from ‘Tevar’.
