Kantara Day 7: First Week Box Office Collection Report
Head Bush Story & Reviews
Produced by Daali Dhananjaya’s Daali Pictures in association with Ramco Somanna’s banner Somanna Talkies, the film is a biopic of Bangalore’s first underworld don, MP Jayaraj.
Set in the late 60s and 70s, during the tenure of former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi, the film roves around the happenings in Jayaraj’s life. It unfolds his childhood, “Pailwan” day, and the rise of Indira Bridge in Karnataka. The film explores Jayaraj’s journey from being a small town pailwan to being Karnataka’s first underworld don.
After learning about the plot and watching the teaser, we can say that the film has an appealing subject, and Daali Dhananjaya as the badass gangster is a perfect choice to play Jayaraj. It has interesting visuals and appears to be a gritty gangster thriller.
Dhananjaya Box-Office Predictions
The makers of the film have left no stone unturned to promote the film and push more and more people into the theatres. They have organised the paid premiere of the film on October 20, 2022 in a certain number of cinema halls at a certain time slot, just a day ahead of its theatrical run.
Interestingly, tickets for the early premiere of the show have also been sold out, and from this, we can guess the excitement of the fans. There is a demand for more shows in many cities.
This craze of the fans for the movie states that the shows are going to be houseful on the for at least 1 week of its theatrical release. As per early estimates, the film is expected to gross 5-6 crores on its opening day.
Can Head Bush Repeat the Success of Kantara?
No doubt, Head Bush is creating a lot of buzz, but currently the only film that has broken as well as created several records at the box-office is Rishab Shetty’s Kantara, which was released on September 30, 2022 in more than 250 theatres across Karnataka.
The film has received a rave response and set the BO on fire by grossing around Rs. 6 crore on its opening day. Following the exceptional response it received, the demand for the film to be released in more Indian languages was very high.
The gangster drama is creating more hype now:

After the success of the film in Kannada, it was released on October 14 in Hindi and the very next day in Tamil and Telugu. The Hindi version was released on over 800 screens around the country, and later it was reported to have been released on over 2500 screens in the Hindi version.
Rishab Shetty, the man behind this mayhem, is currently the talk of the town. The stage for Head Bush also seems perfectly set, as Kantara has beckoned the audience back to cinema halls. However, the hype Kantara has created is likely to affect Head Bush. It is very much possible that the result may not be the most favourable to Dhananjaya.
