Phantom (Hindi) First Day Box Office Performance
In a year where concept based films with controlled budget have done well so far, there are good expectations from Phantom as well to leave a mark. If this year, Drishyam and Badlapur have found a place in audience’s heart solely from content perspective, last year it was Haider which went on to find decent collections coming its way on the basis of word of mouth. None of the three films was an escapist fare. In fact each one of them dealt with a serious issue and had a director of repute putting it all together, while being bankrolled by producers (Viacom, Eros, UTV) who are known for their commercial flicks. Now that Kabir Khan, Sajid Nadiadwala and UTV – three of the most notable names in the industry today – are coming together for Phantom, a film based on topical issue of terrorism, one looks forward to a quality film in the offering. Of course the presence of Saif Ali Khan and Katrina Kaif give the film a commercial edge. However, there are certain films which aren’t made for a 100 crore market but instead put together to tell a tale which is engaging enough for a segment of discerning audience who want their films to be slightly different (when compared to a regular Friday release) and yet entertain.
