Sridevi’s latest film English Vinglish has huge critical acclaim on its site but it looks the statistics don’t comply. According to early reports the film made about 2.80 Crores on its first day at the local box office. There was plenty of hype over the comeback movie of Sridevi however, the first day collections rather deflated.
Not surprisingly, the film did better in multiplexes than that of single screen cinemas. As we mentioned in our previous post the film opened to morning shows with an occupacy of about 20% but picked up in the late night shows to about 35%. It’s the multiplexes in metros and other urban centers that showed this development.
Sridevi’s English Vinglish will extremely rely on the collections of multiplexes to make a good number at the box office. It’s surprising that both this Friday’s releases could show no wonder at the box office. The movie will really need a thrilling in the weekend to put some decent box office numbers in its name. Ideally a 10-12 Crore first weekend should be perfect for the budget that the movie was made on.
