There are around 12 films released today at Indian box office which is ridiculous as in such situations, not a single film gets a decent opportunity to mint money and make a mark.
Once again, in such context, Hollywood leads the shows. Wonder Woman, although has lesser screen count than Priyanka Chopra starrer Baywatch, has opened better than the latter. Wonder Woman witnessed around 20% occupancy which is good as Hollywood films get better response in evening shows so the fill rate for this Gal Gadot starrer will improve as the day progresses.
Baywatch has got the most screens out of all the new releases yet it is not showing a good crowd in its morning shows. Its occupancy so far is around 10%. The reviews for the film are also not good so it will not see much growth.
Coming to the new Hindi releases, only Dobaara is getting somewhat fair response, Being a horror film, youngsters are interested in it. It is getting 8% occupancy while Manisha Koirala’s Dear Maya simply doesn’t have many screens available. Rest of the releases like Hanuman Da Damdaar, Flat No. 211, Mirror Game don’t have considerable screens.
Amidst these avalanche of releases, 2 weeks old film Hindi Medium is still getting a very good response so it can be a big competition to them.
