Ranbir Kapoor and Anurag Basu have brought another musical and visual treat in the form of Jagga Jasoos which released today. The film has got an average occupancy in morning shows but the afternoon situation is improving. The reviews for it are mixed which is not a good sign as film like this which has a unique appeal, needs extremely positive reviews to sustain and grow.
Disney decided to release Jagga Jasoos in select screens and that’s why its screen count in India is 1800+. While a big film like this normally gets more then 2500 screens, this can be a good decision from the makers as the movie has a niche target audience.
Jagga Jasoos is getting maximum response from multiplexes of metro cities like Mumbai, Bengaluru and Kolkatta. The audience recommendation so far is positive and being Ranbir Kapoor, the youngsters will surely turn up for the film in evening shows.
10 crore mark on opening day might be difficult for this Anurag Basu directorial as morning shows have disappointed. Things can still turn around. Its 1st day collections can be in the range of 7.5-8.5 crore. There are also War for the Planet of the Apes and Shab released today but they won’t affect Jagga Jasoos’ business.
Moreover, Basu’s film Barfi was loved by the audience so there is good credibility for his film. Let’s see how much footfalls the movie gathers in evening and night shows.
