After the major Baahubali 2 storm reigning since 28th April, Bollywood finally has a big film released this Friday, Half Girlfriend. There is also Hindi Medium sharing considerable screens with Half Girlfriend. Here is their Morning Box Office Occupancy Report.
Arjun Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor starrer Half Girlfriend has shown excellent occupancy right from its first show in morning. Throughout India, the film is witnessing around 35-40% occupancy which is huge and it shows the young crowd’s interest level in the film and Chetan Bhagat’s story. The film has got 2500 screens in India so its footfalls will increase by evening.
The multiplexes from metro cities are showing the maximum crowd as college going youth are a huge fan base for Arjun Kapoor, Shraddha Kapoor and the author Chetan Bhagat. The film is receiving average to mixed reviews but people will anyways give the film a try as it’s a love story and since Baahubali 2 has been the only film running from last 3 weeks, they might go for a change.
Half Girlfriend’s afternoon and evening show occupancy will be even better as the working millennials are also highly influenced by Chetang Bhagat’s books and its stories adapted for films.
Irrfan Khan’s Hindi Medium is a content driven film so it will pick up the pace in evening and with the good reviews it has been receiving. So far, in morning shows, it has experienced the fill rate of about 15%.
With the credible reputation Irrfan has as an actor, this percentage is expected to improve as the day progresses. Hindi Medium has a strong word of mouth from the early show audience so the crowd will eventually turn up over the weekend.
