Detective Byomkesh Bakshy 3rd Day Collection
After non-starters last week, this week we see the release of Dibakar Banerjee’s whodunit movie ‘Detective Byomkesh Bakshy!’ featuring Sushant Singh Rajput, and this latest release too has disappointed with its initial box office collections. Though Bollywood seldom sees films in this genre, general audience anticipation and expectation have been low. Reports from across the country suggest that the film has opened on a rather slow note with occupancy rate of 20%. A major factor that has sorely dampened the ‘Detective Byomkesh Bakshy!’ business prospects is the Hollywood release ‘Fast and Furious 7′ that opened to a bumper start. In fact, the opening of ‘Fast and Furious 7′ can easily be compared to that of any big budgeted Bollywood film featuring heavy weight names. On the whole, ‘Detective Byomkesh Bakshy!’ has a tough road ahead and will have to rely heavily on good word of mouth. On the other hand, ‘Fast and Furious 7′ that has received good reviews is currently riding high has the added advantage of the audience sympathy with the passing away of lead star Paul Walker.
Detective Byomkesh Bakshy 1st Weekend Box Office Business
Detective Byomkesh Bakshy couldn’t pick up much on Day 2 i.e. on its 1st Saturday at the Box Office. After making a business of Rs.4.20 crores on Day 1, the film showed a slight growth and collected Rs 4.50 crores on Day 2. After this two days its 1st weekend or 3rd day and movie collected Rs.5.36 crore at the domestic box office. This Sushant Singh Rajput starrer now stands at a Domestic total of Rs 14.06 crores nett at the Box Office. A large part of the film’s overall box office performance has been affected by Hollywood release Furious 7, which is doing a mind blowing business in India. Since multiplex audience and urban region is targeted by both the films, Detective Byomkesh Bakshy is facing severe competition here!
