After playing in theaters for two days, the release in public interest has managed to cross the 1 crore mark at the box office. While it’s not really something to cheer for, the fact is that it did so much that wasn’t really expected. Nusrat Bharucha starring open on low 0.44 crore and then grew up a bit to collect 0.80 crore*On Saturday, hence the total 1.24 crore,
There will be a slight increase on Sunday, which means 2.25 crore* Will pass. That said, it is quite unfortunate that Bollywood is at a stage where there is only one new Hindi release in a particular week and we track collections up to one or two crores, whereas in the good old days of pre-pandemic, the situation Thi is far better with double digit scores on a day-to-day basis.
From the look of things, the situation may remain the same for at least 80% of Bollywood releases by the end of the year as most of the backlog films are pre-2020 or the kind that were hurriedly made during 2021. Things have become better in the past and will be so in the future. The change is expected to come with films that are just starting out and release in the second half of 2023 or later. This will be the time when the true correction will finally happen.
*Estimate. final number awaited
Note: All collections according to production and distribution sources
