Puli 1st Day Collection:
Puli has taken a solid start on Thursday. The official figures suggest that Puli 1st day box office collection will be around 10.75 crore.
*Note: The figures have been reduced to India only as the overseas figures are still not available and we have no clue when it will be received. From now on we will be covering only India collection.
Puli was expected to release today in 3000 screens. But unfortunately the film hit rock bottom when the early morning shows were cancelled. The overseas premier shows were also cancelled due to some financial issues. It was only after actor Vijay intervened and settled all the dues that the clearance was given to theatres by Qube. Otherwise Puli collection should have been much higher on day 1.
The Tamil version of the film has opened in Tamil Nadu with a thunderous response at the box office. The occupancy was ranging from 70-75%. Obviously the controversy led to lower occupancy otherwise it could have been higher. As the day progressed, the film picked up its pace in the morning and evening shows.
Puli was not released in Telugu and Hindi languages today. There are chances that it may not release tomorrow also. Later on the film was finally premiered in USA.
Puli box office collection on day 1 is nowhere close to Baahubali which collected 66 crore. But Puli was hit hard by the cancellation of early shows.
The film has received average reviews while word of mouth seems to be mixed. Some of the people have very much liked it while others found it boring. It will be interesting to see how it will perform tomorrow which is a big holiday.
