I am a bit surprised by this drop in the collection. I was expecting the movie to grow or at least remain stable as most morning and noon shows were lost on the first day.
Kesari 2nd day collection: Reason for drop
The drop has mainly come in Mumbai circuit which had an excellent first day (7.5 crores). The collection in the Mumbai circuit almost halved on the second day.
The collection in the other centres remained similar to the first day with some places like UP, Bihar and CP Berar witnessed small growth.
100 crore weekend looks difficult now
After two days, the total collection of Kesari stands at 37.76 crores. With positive reviews and solid word of mouth, I am still expecting the movie to make it big. 100 crore weekend looks difficult now but still, there is a good chance of 85 crore weekend.
The movie had earned 21.06 crores on Thursday despite limited morning and noon shows due to Holi. With the collection of 21.06 crores, it becomes the highest opening day grosser of 2019 beating Ranveer Singh’s Gully Boy (19.4 crores).
Kesari budget and box office economics
Kesari budget (promotion and advertising cost) is 100 crores. Here is a look at the verdict of the movie based on its lifetime collection.
Hit – More than 130 crores
Super Hit – More than 150 crores
Blockbuster – More than 220 crores
