First Day Collection of Sachin A Billion Dreams
Sachin Tendulkar’s docu-drama, Sachin: A Billion Dreams hits the theaters today. The film’s trailer had enjoyed a good hype and even A R Rahman’s composition, the Sachin anthem, became a rage. The film’s occupancy for morning shows has been good. It opened to a good 30-35% occupancy and it is quite decent for a Friday.
What’s special is that, the film is not a regular feature film and yet it has managed great footfalls which shows the reach of Sachin fans. The film is expected to make good collection on day one from the Hindi version for sure. It is releasing in English, Marathi, Tamil and Telugu as well. So far, the film is showing a great response in metros such as Mumbai, Pune, Bangalore and Kolkata. In rest of the regions, the film is picking up slowly.
On the opening day, James Erskine’s directorial witnessed the overall occupancy of 45% across India with decent growth from evening shows. As per reports, it estimated to collect the amount of 8.40 crores from 2400 screens nationwide. This will be the sixth highest opening of the year in Bollywood so far. At international markets, Sachin A Billion Dreams has released on 400 screens and getting good response there too. With such favorable response, it seems to show considerable growth over the weekend.
While there will be comparisons with M S Dhoni The Untold Story, we will have to bear in mind that the latter one was a pure feature film and hence massive collections are expected. Sachin: A Billion Dreams being a docu-drama featuring Sachin himself, may be a little limited to the Cricketer’s fans. The film is an insight into his personality as a whole.
Directed by James Erskine, the film has contributions from Sachin’s family, popular sports commentators Harsha Bhogle, Boria Majumdar and Gideon Haigh. Also, popular Indian players like Virat Kohli, M S Dhoni and Virendra Sehwag are seen sharing their experiences with the legend.
