Two new distinct releases of this Friday are Lucknow Central and Simran. Both the movies have strong topics at hand and if the audience loves them, they can grow over the weekend. But, before that, they will need to get good reviews and positive word of mouth.
Both Lucknow Central and Simran are witnessing a slow start at box office. The morning occupancy for them is around 8-10%. Let’s hope it improves by afternoon and evening. Multiplex crowd is important for these movies as they will appeal more to that audience.
Both of them are getting almost the same screens share. the early reviews for Lucknow Central are decent to mixed while Simran is decent. The audience recommendation is vital for such movies.
The holdover releases don’t have any impact on new films as they are not getting any good response. Bollywood is once again getting a low response in theaters as the footfalls have dropped since Toilet: Ek Prem Katha and Baadshaho.
