It’s one of the most-anticipated films of the year and it looks like Bol Bachchan, which features Abhishek Bachchan along with Asin and Prachi Desai, will not disappoint. When Rohit Shetty and Ajay Devgn last came together with Singham, they took the box office by storm. Now some distributors expect Bol Bachchan to even surpass Singham’s performance at the ticket window. Let’s take a look at how the film, inspired by Amol Palekar-Bindya Goswami’s 1979 Gol Maal, fared during the morning shows today.
Early reports of the film are promising, with an average 50 to 55 per cent in most centres. The film is expected to wrap day one with exceptional numbers. Also being a solo big release, it is expected to enjoy a good run at the box office.
In Mumbai, Rajesh Thadani of Multimedia Combines says Bol Bachchan took an opening of 50 per cent during the early morning shows across India and in Mumbai as well. “The film has good reports and business will pick up with every successive show.”
Bol Bachchan is a total family entertainer. In the Delhi-UP circuit, G D Mehta of Bobby Arts International explains, “The film has action, comedy and romance, which the audience looks for in a film. The opening of the film is 50 to 60 per cent. It is a sure-short winner at the ticket window.”
But Jaspal Dhingra of Big Pictures in East Punjab is a little disappointed with the opening of the film. “The opening is just about 30 to 40 per cent for now. Since the film has huge names, later shows should show improvement.”
Sunit Singh of Aum Moviez feels Bol Bachchan will fare even better than Singham did as it is a combination of action and comedy. “The opening for the morning shows was 55 per cent, which is good. The evening shows will be even better. Day one will end on a good note.”
In CP, Sarang Chandak of Shri Rang Films adds, “The reports of the film are good but the movie opened to only 35 per cent. We hope the weekend will be better.”
Bol Bachchan took an extraordinary opening in Rajasthan. Sunil Bansal of Yash Raj Jai Pictures says, “The opening of the film was 80 to 90 per cent. I am sure the evening will be house full and the movie will waltz its way into the Rs 100-crore club.”
In the Gujarat circuit, Ajay Bagdai of Rajvi Trade Link concludes, “In our circuit, comedy always enjoys the upper hand compared to other genres. So Bol Bachchan will be a blockbuster as it already took an opening of 75 to 80 per cent for the morning shows.”
