Sanjay Gupta’s “Kaabil” is being Appreciated by Everyone
Sanjay Gupta directorial debut Kaabil has been released 5 days before on the big screen and now today the film has completed its sixth release day with excellent reports. Film has broken many records set by previous films on box office. This film has released this Wednesday on 2200 Indian screens opposite to superstar Shahrukh Khan starrer crime drama Raees but still getting huge appreciation and positive response from audience.
After locking horns with Shah Rukh Khan’s Raees on its release day and getting just 40 percent of the screens across the country, Hrithik Roshan-Yami Gautam starrer Kaabil has managed to collect Rs 67.46 crore overall in just five days of its release. Initially, Kaabil was positioned as the underdog among the two films but audiences are slowly turning towards the Hrithik Roshan-starrer revenge thriller. There is unanimous critical acclaim as well as positive word of mouth which has certainly helped get more people to the theatres.
The Sanjay Gupta directorial has managed to amass as much as Rs 15.05 crore on day five (January 29). On the fifth day the total box office collection of Raees is Rs 89.44 crore while Kaabil has collected Rs 67.46. On Monday, Kaabil has recorded the drop of 40% than previous day and raked the business of 6.04 crores as its sixth day collection. The film is expected to cross the mark of 73.50 crore till the end of this week from India only. Hrithik’s performance, in particular, has won appreciation across all quarters.
This is pretty much a T20 cricket scenario for the film since it has to score primarily in the first 17 overs available for it (read full 17 days, right from mid-week release of Wednesday till the third Thursday) before another team enters the arena (i.e. Jolly LLB 2 ). This would be the date [10th February] when there would be three way division of screens between Akshay Kumar, Shah Rukh Khan and Hrithik Roshan starrers. Now it has entered in the weekday and as general started facing low occupancy in theaters.
