Baar Baar Dekho seems to have crashed out on Sunday even before the weekdays have started. The collections on Sunday look very similar to collections on Friday, they could come in a little higher but it is clear that the film has dropped from its Saturday business and that is the telling point. The film has a title suggesting repeat viewings but the majority of the paying public seems to have let go after two days. Jokes aside, its another big blow to the industry to have a film rejected so early. There could be something to with festivities of Bakri Eid as generally the Sunday growth is lacklustre for all films being screened but none have dropped as bad as Baar Baar Dekho. The first weekend business of Baar Baar Dekho is as follows.
Friday – 6,75,00,000
Saturday – 7,50,00,000
Sunday – 6,75,00,000 apprx
TOTAL – 21,00,00,000 apprx
There is a holiday on Monday for Bakri Eid so that can hold up collections a little better than normal as we saw with last week’s Akira which had a holiday on Monday for Ganesh Chaturthi and collections held despite no appreciation but it will be just for one day and normal pattern will be resumed after.
A Sunday drop is more than just box office, it normally remains outright rejection and is very rare unless films have extended weekends or big holidays fall on Friday and Saturday or another external reason like a big cricket match or something. The weekend is in the range of a film like Wazir which was a flop but was less costly than Baar Baar Dekho.
