Dharma Productions’ latest release Kapoor & Sons has not only become one of the most critically acclaimed films of the year, but the Shakun Batra directed film is on course to become the 3rd major success of 2016 after Airlift and Neerja.
The film has passed the ‘Monday test’ with flying colours, as the drop from Friday to Monday was just 26%. This is huge, simply because of the fact that tickets at multiplexes sell for cheaper prices during the weekdays. The occupancy on Monday was as high as Friday, but the collections are lower because of lower ticket prices.
Kapoor & Sons has collected Rs 31.43 crore in 4 days at the box office. There is a holiday in parts of the country for Holi, so the first week business could touch the 45 crore mark.
The Sidharth Malhotra starrer has also performed phenomenally well at the overseas box office. The first weekend ($2.92 million) was better than a big film like Airlift ($2.78 million).
It’s also important to note that all three films that have worked this year, have received phenomenal reviews. While mediocre films have failed at the box office, good films have been extremely profitable.
