Kabir Khan’s long-awaited movie starring Ranveer Singh, 83, did poorly over the weekend. 16.75 to 18.00 crore on Sunday and the total revenue for the three days was over Rs. 47 crore.
Although Christmas is a major national holiday, Bollywood films like Tiger Zinda Hai and Dangdut have set all-day single-day records, but the 83 collection is far below expectations.
During the opening weekend, three national networks – PVR, Inox and Sinipolis – failed to make a profit of about Rs 28 crore, while all other single-screen and non-national networks failed to make a profit.
The final number 83 may be slightly higher than the previous estimate, as there was a slight increase in single screens on Sunday and the exact amount of interiors could not be known until Monday morning.
One week after its release, Spider-Man: No Way Home is still in the air. After its second weekend, the film has already crossed the billion mark with its worldwide collection. Secondly, Indian fans also went out to see Pushpa. According to Bollywood Hungama.com, “The reduction in the number of screenings did not affect either film.” Even after fearing Omicron, audiences chose to experience both films in cinema halls.
83 The only reason it did not live up to expectations was the lack of public excitement to see the film, and the astronomically high ticket prices, which made the film inaccessible to the average person.
Following the media screenings and excellent reviews, the credit flow among the audience does not seem to be as strong as one might think. While metros are getting positive attention, reports from the mass belts, in particular, say the grade is inaccessible. Lack of a commercial strategy is considered to be the main reason for the poor press on the mass belts.
