Tamasha had a reasonable first day with business of around 10.75 crore nett. The last film of Ranbir Kapoor and Imtiaz Ali together Rockstar had grossed a little under 10 crore nett but that was four years ago and with Tamasha being a bigger film it should really done more. Still its a decent enough platform to build on over the weekend but the growth has to be strong and the film needs to get over 40 crore nett for the weekend.
The film was best in Mysore with collections close to 1 crore nett. Mumbai was next best with 4 crore nett apprx. The film did pretty well in Gujarat / Saurashtra for its genre as it picked up 1.25 crore nett. The disappointment came in North as both Delhi UP and East Punjab were below the mark. For this type of film both circuits should be leading.
East India was also poor with only West Bengal collecting with 51 lakhs nett on day one. The mass circuits were as expected as this type of content does not work there. The film will be dependent on the main multiplexes and will need appreciation there if it is to hold on the weekdays.
