Ek Villain was estimated to take massive start at box office and that is what happened. The film released yesterday across 2300 plus screens. But movie surpassed all expectations and took the Second biggest opening of 2014. Ek Villain was simply massive in Gujarat, Mumbai and central India.
Though movie was affected by Punjabi flick ”1984” in East Punjab but film was still overall decent over there too. The movie was super solid in east and south. The movie had super solid the first day as film earned massive 16.75 cr nett on day 1 which was simply superb. The movie made havoc in smaller centers and was housefull throughout the day.
Ek Villain was also solid in centers like west and south where mostly middle size Bollywood movies don’t score this big. How big was the opening one can judge from the following table where we compare release day business of all big releases of recent times in Cinepark Valsad (Gujarat). The movie is biggest non holiday opener and only Second to big holiday launch and the film has easily surpassed all targets.
