Major Box Office Collection Day 1

Sashi Kiran Tikka’s Major after garnering positive responses from the previews across the country, graced the theatres on June 3 (Friday). It is a biographical film based on the life of Major Sandeep Unnikrishnan, who gave his life during the 26/11 terrorist attack in Mumbai.

The film had pre-screenings for the public in various cities in India. Most of the previews have gone sold-out and received standing ovations from the crowd.

Major is filmed in both languages Telugu and Hindi and has been released in three languages Hindi, Telugu, and Malayalam. Adivi Sesh along with starring also wrote the film. It is produced by Mahesh Babu with Anurag Reddy and Sharath Chandra.

Till Thursday evening Major had sold the tickets worth Rs 3.72 Cr, Telugu version has sold the most tickets around Rs 3.10 Cr, Hindi 60 L and Malayalam 2 L.

Screen Counts

The worldwide theatre count for Major is 1500, India theatre count for the film is around 1000 with most in the home market (AP/TG) 410, and overseas the film is screened in 500 theatres approx.

The film had 88 premiere shows ahead of its release, and all of the shows have been sold out reportedly. It is a record in itself, as it happened for the first time ever for an Indian film.

Clash

Major is locked horns on Friday with two other much-hyped films Samrat Prithviraj and Vikram. All these three films are expected to give tough competition to each other at the box office. Vikram is releasing in a similar number of theatres as Major (410) in AP/TG while Prithviraj’s Tamil and Telugu screen counts are 200+.

Box Office Collection

As per the reports, the small budget film collects Rs 13.10 Cr gross WW on the first day, it collects the most from Andhra Pradesh and Telangana.

It will need positive word of mouth to perform well in other circuits. The Hindi collection of the film is very poor, it opened with only Rs 96 Lakhs on Friday.

Many are comparing it with the 2021 biographical war film Shershaah which was directly streamed on Amazon Prime. The film was based on the life of Kargil War hero Vikram Batra. The film was loved by the viewers so much so that it became one of the most viewed films on the platform that year. However, it remains to be seen whether Major creates the same magic as Shershaah or not.
