After Golmaal Again, things have again gone back to normal as yet another Bollywood film is struggling for initial. This has been the case all over the year with few exceptions.
Sidharth Malhotra starrer Ittefaq opened to around 10-15% occupancy in the morning shows. The slow start was expected due to the initial buzz. The opening is in the same range as Sidharth’s last release A Gentleman. Though Ittefaq has a controlled release but has better chances to show growth in the evening.
Hollywood release Thor Ragnarok has opened to around 30% occupancy. The film has recorded excellent collections in metros and plexes and it will easily top the other release Ittefaq. Since Annabelle Creation, Hollywood has not delivered a hit film in India. It will be interesting to see if Thor can achieve that fate.
