Just like film critics, masses are also going ga-ga over the film Rocket Singh - Salesman of the Year. But on the first day of release, there were only a few takers for the film. ‘Rocket Singh’ witnessed a sleepy start at the box office.
The movie opened to a weak response of around 30-40% and evening shows were also dull, making only 50-55%. There wasn’t any difference on single screens too; the movie saw a low response. Collections were Rs 10.50 crore approx over the weekend. Talking about overseas business, it earned approx Rs 2.50 crore from all markets, comparatively a low-key affair.
However, since it’s a low-budget film, recovering production cost is not a big deal and, of course, the audience is loving Ranbir Kapoor as Rocket Singh.
Making you emotional and leaving you moist-eyed, Paa had a good first week, earning around Rs 16.50 crore nett. The film did very well this weekend while midweek collections were steady but not low. As proposed by trade analysts, the film can probably do Rs 25-30 crore nett lifetime business, the only condition is that its second week should be good.
Radio is a sure flop with very poor first week collection of around Rs 1.25 crore.
As the year comes to an end, everyone is waiting with bated breath for 3 Idiots on 25th December. Box office sure has a reason to smile.
