Another big Hindi release of 2018, October is all set to hit the screens this Friday with good buzz among fans as well as the audience. Varun Dhawan, Banita Sandhu and Gitanjali Rao starrer this romantic drama is releasing solo and expected to take a good start at the domestic box office.
In many ways, the Shoojit Sircar directed film is Varun’s most unconventional film ever since he burst into the Bollywood scene. The film doesn’t really have a quintessential hero-heroine love angle, it seems to have a sad overtone to it and Shoojit is anyways known for bringing different sensibilities into play when it comes to narrating his tale.
With it’s trailer and promos, the movie made good impact over viewers. Also with smart promotion strategies, makers got succeed to create desired hype of October among Hindi cinema fans across the country as well as overseas. These facts point toward a good opening for it at domestic box office.
Due to good initial hype, October has registered decent advance booking. Considering the facts and figures, it seems capable to open in range of 5-5.50 crores on 1683 screens across the country. The movie will show good growth over the weekend if reviews come in favor.
Of course a bigger haul could well come in if the word of mouth spreads really quick and it is positive. Then, there could well be a major turnaround in evening and night shows, as was the case with Ranbir Kapoor‘s Barfi which had collected Rs. 8.50 crore on its opening day. That said, director Shoojit Sircar’s biggest opener till date is Piku which had collected Rs. 5.30 crore on its opening Friday.
