Jagga Jasoos Day 1 Box Office Collection Update: Bollywood has been struggling for initials for quite some time. The last couple of months has turned out to be very poor for Bollywood. The big Eid release Tubelight starring Salman Khan disappointed big time. There were only a couple of successful films in the same period.
Now all eyes are on Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif starrer Jagga Jasoos. This is the first big release since Tubelight. As per the official announcement, the film is released in 1800 screens. The makers have opted for a limited release and the most of the screens are allocated to high-end multiplexes.
Jagga Jasoos has a poor opening. The overall occupancy in the morning shows was in the range of 20-25% in all over India which is a slow start. The opening is better in Mumbai, Kolkata and Bangalore but the rest of the places are way below the mark. Considering that it is a controlled release, the occupancy should have been better. The makers have made a wise decision by not opting for a wide release. Otherwise, the shows would have been cancelled which will spread negativity.

Noon Shows Report:
Jagga Jasoos has shown some growth in the noon shows as the occupancy at plexes has gone up to 35-40% while the single screens remain the same. However, at some places, the morning shows were cancelled due to some technical issues. This would not be a much of an issue if it was a wide release.
Evening Shows Report:
The film has witnessed good growth in the evening shows as the multiplex audience has come in the later half. The overall occupancy has gone over 50%. But ideally, it should have been in the morning shows. Overall the opening day number will be low and it will require a big push over the weekend.
The low opening was always on the cards as there was not much of interest among the audience. Earlier it looked like a fun film which will appeal towards kids and family audience. However, the later promos and songs were very confusing. As a result, a large section of the audience has stayed away.
Jagga Jasoos has turned out to be a niche film. It needs to work in the five metros to achieve a reasonable total. The film is made on a medium budget of 100 crores including P&A. It needs to collect over 120 crores for recovering costs. It looks like an uphill task as of now.
