The John Abraham-starrer action drama Satyameva Jayate clocked in unexpected numbers at the box office on day one but the film registered a huge drop in its numbers on day two. Distributors from across the country share their outlook for the film today vis-à-vis yesterday.
Debashish Dey, West Bengal
Satyameva Jayate collected around Rs 35 lakhs in this circuit yesterday and today’s collections should be the same. The film is expected to pick up from the night shows today; otherwise a Friday doesn’t seem to affect the box office numbers very much.
B H Basha, Mysore
Satyameva Jayate earned around Rs 18 lakh in Mysore yesterday and I think it should register a 10-per cent rise today. Compared to yesterday’s pan-India collections, the film should earn 15 per cent more today and is likely to pick up on the weekend.
Ravi Machchar, Nizam
Satyameva Jayate is doing really well in my circuit. Being a Friday, today is a holiday in Aurangabad’s industrial sector. Naturally, collections will be good in my area, and today’s collections should be 55-60 per cent of day one’s collections in my territory. Yesterday, it rained across Marathwada and hence there was a drop in collections but they have picked up today.
Sakshi Mehra, Delhi
Yesterday’s collections of Satyameva Jayate in my territory were Rs 1.85 crore. Today, there will be a 10-15 per cent rise in the box-office numbers of the film. Morning shows were not all that good but the numbers picked up a little from the afternoon and they will rise further during the evening and night shows.
Sarang Chandak, CP
Compared to yesterday, today’s 12 o’clock show was 90 per cent full, a 10-per cent drop in collections over yesterday’s numbers. It seems, things will pick up from late afternoon and in the evening. But I think the box-office numbers will be the same as yesterday’s for Satyameva Jayate.
Sunil Bansal, Rajasthan
Satyameva Jayate’s collections dropped 45 per cent on day two compared to its first day since it was a regular day. Today, the collections will remain the same. Thursday and Friday are regular days so many people don’t come to watch films before evening. The night shows are expected to witness a larger audience and the film will definitely pick up on Saturday and Sunday.
