Baar Baar Dekho had a decent opening at some multiplexes of the big cities especially in the North at around 30-35% but other multiplexes were lower at around 20%. Overall the opening is fair and remains to be seen how the film goes over the rest of they day.
Looking at the initial numbers its probably going to be a five city film as its best chances for numbers outside the big metros was some sort of start in the Agra and Indore’s of the country on the popularity of its hit song Kala Chasma but that has not really happened. The film will be depending on the business in Mumbai, Delhi NCR, Pune, Bangalore and Kolkata and these cities do best on Saturday so big growth in these places tomorrow will mean at least the film has appreciation in these places.
The North India multiplexes of Delhi NCR and big cities of Punjab will lead on day one.
The other major release Freaky Ali has taken a 15% opening probably has one third of the screenings of Baar Baar Dekho. The film also managed to find its way to a single screen release but to no response as does not the face value or content for single screens. This film is totally dependent on word of mouth and if the reports of the film are decent then it could challenge Baar Baar Dekho over the weekend and weekdays at multiplexes outside the big metroes.
Ek Kahani Julie Ki is a non starter and with one show at limited multiplexes it hardly has a chance at the box office.
