Freaky Ali showed reasonable growth on Saturday of around 40-45% though collections are on the lower side. The domestic theatrical rights have been sold for 8 crore so on that its not too bad though if the collections were 20-25% higher, it would be actually be looking to pull through as far as that 8 crore recovery is concerned. The bigger problem is the cost of the film which will either need good returns from other sources like Overseas, television and digital or huge overflow to come from domestic above the 8 crore price which is unlikely. The first two day collections of Freaky Ali are as follows.
Friday – 1,75,00,000
Saturday – 2,50,00,000
TOTAL – 4,25,00,000
The reports of the film are so so but it has a character artiste as the main lead and that reflects in collections. But even here if you compare the openings of Nawazuddin Siddiqui starrers then Freaky Ali is on top.
Freaky Ali Day One – 1,75,00,000 apprx
Raman Raghav 2.0 Day One – 99,00,000
Manjhi – The Mountain Man – 1,34,00,00,000.
Freaky Ali may have an outside chance to recover the price of its domestic rights but overall recovery is a huge task.
