Kaptaan 1st Day Box Office Collection
2016 has proved to be a great year for Punjabi cinema. This year we have witnessed two huge hits in the name of Love Punjab and Ambarsariya. Ardaas was a hit and received a lot of critical acclaim. This Friday another Gippy Grewal starrer Kaptaan was released. Kaptaan is a court drama movie where Gippy Grewal takes up a case against a top lawyer. It has done good business despite the fact that initial buzz was not that great.
As per the early estimates, Kaptaan box office collection on its first day will be around 0.80 crores in all over India. The film opened to decent occupancy in East Punjab though it was below average in Delhi. The opening is slightly better than Ardaas but lower than other blockbusters of this year. The highest opening day record is still held by Sardaar Ji released last year. Kaptaan collection on its first day also the highest for Gippy Grewal since Jatt James Bond.
Kaptaan was also competing with Bollywood release Sarbjit which was based in Punjab. But it seems that Kaptaan has made a dent in Sarbjit collection as it was better in terms of occupancy. Gippy Grewal is one of the biggest superstars in Punjabi cinema. But his recent films have failed to live up to the expectations. His contemporaries like Diljit Dosanjh and Amrinder Gill have left him behind. The film is carrying ordinary reports and it will be interesting to see if it can show growth on Saturday and Sunday.
