Rocket Singh – Salesman Of The Year had a dull start as it opened to around 30-40% and evening shows did not show major improvement at around 50-55%. Single screens had a low response. The film has fairly low costs so recovery is not a major problem but it remains to be seen what sort of theatrical business it can do. Delhi/NCR showed best improvement yesterday evening but not the sort of jump that makes a big difference.
Paa had a decent first week of around 16.50 crore nett. The film did very well on Saturday and Sunday while midweek collections were steady but on lower side. Second week will be important for the film. Overall the film will probably do 25-30 crore nett lifetime business unless second week is poor.
Radio had a very poor first week of around 1.25 crore nett. DISASTER
De Dana Dan added 10 crore nett in its second weekend. The second week was decent in some circuits but overall the film had a big fall in week two. The film has now grossed 44 crore nett in two weeks.
