Eros International and Illuminati Films’ Cocktail enjoyed a fabulous weekend, and was appreciated by both tradewallahs and the audience. Although the film is doing decent business at single-screens, the big bucks are coming in from multiplexes. Over the weekend, Cocktail collected over Rs 35 crore and took a steady opening on Monday. According to distributors, the film will wrap its first week with impressive numbers.
In Mumbai, Rajesh Thadani of Multimedia Combines says, “Cocktail has earned Rs 37 crore pan-India and, in Mumbai, collections are close to Rs 14 crore. This week too looks positive as the film has a strong hold over the multiplex audience.”
Delhi-UP mirrored this trend. According to Sanjay Ghai of Mukta Arts, “Cocktail earned Rs 8 crore in our region. The week looks steady for the film, and despite the slow second half of the film, the audience is enjoying it.”
In East Punjab, Surendra Saluja of Lakshya Movies says, “The weekend was extraordinary and the film clocked very impressive numbers. Collections here were Rs 3.62 crore. The youth-centric concept has worked very well.”
Sunit Singh of Aum Moviez adds, “The weekend was huge and the collection in West Bengal was Rs 1.5 crore. Considering the weekend reports of the film, this week should wrap on remarkable numbers.”
In Rajasthan, Sunil Bansal of Yash Raj Jai Pictures remarks, “Weekend shows of Cocktail were 90 per cent during the weekend. The film earned Rs 58 lakh on its opening day and had a smooth run at multiplexes in our region. Weekend collections are close to Rs 2 crore.”
In Mysore, BH Basha of Bahar Enterprises adds, “The film has enjoyed a tremendous weekend in our region. The three-day collections in Mysore are Rs 2.2 crore.”
In Orissa, Jeetu Khandelwal of Movie Pioneers concludes, “Multiplexes enjoyed good occupancy compared to single-screens. The collection here was Rs 15 lakh. These are pretty good numbers for a film that does not have mass appeal.”
