Bangistan 1st Day Box Office Collection
This week’s new release Bangistan, couldn’t make much business on its first day at the Domestic Box Office. Moreover, yet another reason for the lack of curiosity could be the late promotions. Though the film was in the news when its first promo came out, it later lost the fizz owing to the delayed and untimely promotions. As we have mentioned before, promotion is the key factor that decides the success rate of the film in the current times. Hence, it is important for the makers to start their promotions way ahead of the release. Delayed promotions lead to disinterest and even lack of awareness because of which Bangistan has no buzz at all. Add to that, the pressure on the film has increased, after Bahubali recently crossed the 100 crore mark while Bajrangi Bhaijaan is on its way to enter the 300 crore club. With the soaring success of two major Bollywood films, Bangistan has to deal with stiff competition in order to survive the box office. Bangistan, performed better at select theatres of Delhi NCR only. The film should pick up on Saturday and Sunday. Decent reviews from the critics and ‘not-that-bad’ word of mouth publicity should help the film to make some money at the Box Office.
Bangistan Opening Day Performance at Box Office
The movie opened to a poor occupancy of just 15-20% in the morning and afternoon shows. However, it later picked up marginally in the evening and night shows. Bangistan made an approximate business of about 3+ Crores* on its 1st Day (Friday) at the Box Office. The movie faced a tough competition with the Hollywood flick Mission Impossible 5 and the Super-Hit flicks Bajrangi Bhaijaan, Baahubali & Drisyam. ronically, film’s director Karan Anshuman was known for being a harsh movie critic who attacked movies and filmmakers going hammer and tongs about the content. It’s ironic now though that he himself seems to be struggling to impress audience as he got everything else going for him starting with good banner, good actors, strong team etc. However, the content of his film seen in the promotions has failed to impress or generate any laughter. Despite its poor promotions, lack of screen space and no interest among the masses, the makers are currently hoping to salvage Bangistan. Let’s hope that their efforts do not go waste and the film is able to post at least respectful numbers at the box office.
