|Rockstar, starring Ranbir Kapoor as an anguished rocker, has opened to a good start at multiplexes. However, the response at single screen theatres was below expected.
The film has got mixed reviews from critics, with some praising it for its ‘nuanced’ storytelling while others panning it as ‘an unfortunate mess’. But what matters at the end of the day is how the cine-goers lap up the movie.

If the opening day response is to go by, the film has been lapped up at the multiplexes. The response was best in the NCR region, particularly Delhi where some of the shows were housefull. On average, the response to the film stands between 70 to 80 percent at multiplexes, which is a good response.
However, the single screen theatres have been slow to pick up. The response there has averaged 50 percent, which is not up to the mark.
Still, Rockstar is expected to have a good first weekend at box office. Also add to it the fact that there’s no big release from Bollywood next Friday.
The other major release of this week was The Adventures Of Tintin which released in both 2D and 3D. The 3D version got a favourable response with the occupancy ranging between 60 to 70 percent. The 2D version saw an opening day response between 30 to 40 percent.

The next major release would be Desi Boyz on November 25.
