Katti Batti 1st Day Box Office Collection
This week’s major release is Katti Batti and the film is expected to take a decent opening at the Box Office. With the subject in hand, its lead female protagonist (Kangana Ranaut) and also her first time pairing with Imran Khan, the hype could have been really good. However, despite its promotion beginning three months in advance, the buzz is decent to good while visibility is fine. It would have just helped further had the excitement been all time high. One could also attribute this to the fact that major chunk of interview-based promotion so far has been centered on the actors’ personal life than the film in itself, which is a recent (scary) trend building up of late. Promotion for a film is ideally expected to ‘promote a film’ instead of ‘promoting a star’. However, this is what’s happening today, which is resulting in the actual content in the offering getting relegated somewhere in the background. Opposite to Katti Batti, the very much hyped movie MSG 2 The Messenger has released. Millions of devotees are excited to watch this action drama movie of Saint Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh Ji. MSG 2 is the biggest hurdle for Katti Batti to perform better at box office. As per critics, Kangana & Imran both have performed very well but still the movie is an average in terms of entertainment.
Katti Batti Opening Day Box Office Response
These mixed reviews will not result in favor for Katti Batti at box office. This latest rom-com has also not recorded any impressive response in advance booking. Nonetheless, coming to the Box Office prospects of the film, Katti Batti – basically a city-centric film – should take an opening in the range of 30%-40% and then see progress on the basis of word of mouth to collect 5.28 crores on Indian screens. Though there is a plethora of releases next week, the film can still survive well for two weeks if the content is superb until biggie Singh Is Bliing and the powerful Talvar release on 2nd October. Another release of the week is Meeruthiya Gangsters and the first milestone for the ensemble film would be to see an all-India release. Though the film has been promoted reasonably well, it would struggle to find an audience for itself, except for the U.P. belt up North. This Indian romantic comedy film directed by Nikhil Advani and produced by Siddharth Roy Kapur under the banner of UTV Motion Pictures. The film stars Kangana Ranaut and Imran Khan in the lead roles
