The much awaited Kapoor & Sons has released in India today. After a long time a family drama film has hit the screens. The film has popular actors like Sidharth Malhotra, Alia Bhatt, Fawad Khan and Rishi Kapoor. It has done decent business on its first day.
As per the official figures Kapoor & Sons collection on its first day will be around 6.85 crore. It has a decent opening in the morning shows. The overall occupancy was in the range of 20-25%. The opening was best in Delhi/NCR, Mumbai and Kolkata. The film showed good growth with the passage of day. The occupancy in the evening shows was up to 60% at multiplexes.
Kapoor and Sons 1st day collection will be 4th highest opening day of 2016. The film has beaten Wazir, Jai Gangaajal and Neerja. But it has fallen short of Ghayal Once Again and Kya Kool Hain Hum 3. The film had a good run in high end multiplexes. But the single screens were dull throughout the day.
Kapoor and Sons box office collection is decent on its day 1. Though the expectations were slightly higher as it had free run and hit music. But the buzz was rather low near the release of the film. The film was released in approximately 1500 screens. Kapoor & Sons has received excellent reviews and the word of mouth is encouraging too. Normally such film can show big growth over the weekend, if they are accepted. But the hurdle will be the big cricket match between Pakistan and India which will limit the potential growth on Saturday. Fortunately the film does not have huge cost so the recovery will not be an issue if it gets a decent run on weekdays.
The two other releases Dare You and Cute Kameena were complete washouts.
