Vikram Vedha had another day worth more than Rs. 5 crores Rs. 5.57 crores came on Tuesday. Ideally, the collection should have been in Rs. 8-10 crore range for pre Dussehra day. Even more, because there is no competition. However, since the film is working only in pockets where the collection is divided between multiplexes and single screens, not really seeing any thriving business, the makers have to do what is coming their way.
The good news is that at least the collection hasn’t dropped. On Monday this number is Rs. 5.39 crores So the kind of numbers that are coming from that aspect indicate that there is some kind of appreciation among the select set of viewers. Still, for a film that was universally appreciated from a critical point of view, it certainly deserved better. The Saif Ali Khan-Hrithik Roshan starrer is currently priced at Rs. 48.10 crores and should go beyond Rs. 60 crore figure by the end of the first week. Post that it will be about achieving as much as you can to cross Rs. 80 crores.
Meanwhile, the PS-1 is aimed at Rs. 20 crores after the last few stagnant days. Otherwise, after the first day Rs. 1.85 crores, it really did not seem possible. The reason is that this year so many movies opened the same and ended up in Rs. 15-20 crore range. However, in its own small way this south dubbed release is gaining traction which is ensuring steady footfall. On Tuesday also it was seen that like Monday, it remained with Ray. 1.50 crore* is coming. Rupee. 10.50 crores *, the first week of Mani Ratnam film should be 13-14 crores.
*Estimate. final number awaited
