The John Abraham-starrer Satyameva Jayate, directed by Milap Milan Zaveri, took a bumper opening at the box office. Distributors from across the country weigh in on their expectations for the film today.
Debashish Dey, West Bengal
Satyameva Jayate collected a little over a Rs 1 crore in this circuit yesterday. The film will see a slight drop in collections today as it is a working day. But the drop will not be substantial and the film should earn Rs 60-75 lakh at the box office.
Gaurav Ruparel, Saurashtra
Satyameva Jayate had a fantastic first day and the movie collected Rs 40 lakh. However, it will see a 40 per cent drop today because the audience is only the people who have watched the film or are watching it now, it is a massy film. The film should collect Rs 40-50 crore in its lifetime. Across India, the film’s collections today should be half of what they were yesterday, at around Rs 8-9 crore.
BH Basha, Mysore
Satyameva Jayate earned Rs 75 lakh in Mysore on day one but there will be a 50-per cent drop today. The numbers yesterday were due to the Independence Day holiday. Compared to yesterday’s pan-India collections of Rs 18 crore, the film should see a 50 per cent drop today.
Ravi Machchar, Nizam
Satyameva Jayate earned Rs 85-90 lakh on day one and, today, its collections should be not be less than Rs 65-70 lakh. Pan-India, the film earned Rs 18-20 crore on day one and should collect Rs 14-16 crore today. The film will pick up again on Saturday and Sunday.
Sakshi Mehra, Delhi
Satyameva Jayate opened very big in Uttar Pradesh, which is very surprising. The initial numbers in singles screen theatres and among the mass audience have been phenomenal for this film. There are no numbers yet, but the reports are positive.
Sarang Chandak, CP
Satyameva Jayate collected Rs. 1.2 crore on its opening day. It has done well but then yesterday was a holiday. Since today is a working day, the film will see a 50-per cent drop in collections.
Sunil Bansal, Rajasthan
Satyameva Jayate has performed extremely well. Today, it may cross the collections of GOLD in spite of being allotted fewer shows and screens compared to GOLD. But it has done well in single screen theatres and in multiplexes as well, in the interior regions. The pan-India collections for the film may be at par with GOLD tomorrow.
