Besharam; Flop in First Three Days..
Besharam fell another 15% on Friday after the epic 65% crash on Thursday. The collections on Friday were around 5.75 crore nett which takes it 3 day total to 31.50 crore nett.
Saturday and Sunday should see better collections but when collections are already down to the 6 crore nett levels it all becomes irrelevant. Saturday may be up a little or in the same range while Sunday should be up by 10-15% so the film is looking to add another 13 crore nett which would give it a five day weekend of around 45 crore nett.
Even if the film had fallen 50% on day two it could have been safe as it would have got a 50 crore share while now it is losses all around with the lifetime share struggling to hit even 35 crore.
Besharam had the sixth highest opening of the year which is a dissapointment as it was expected to be in the top three. If we look at the all time list it is in 28th place for the weeeknd after having the 7th highest opening day ever. Below are the highest collecting weekends of the year.
1. Chennal Express - 87,08,00,000
2. Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani -61,87,00,000
3. Race 2 - 48,17,00,000
4. Grand Masti - 39,37,00,000
5. Satyagraha - 33,86,00,000
6. Besharam - 31,50,00,000
7. Bhaag Milkha Bhaag - 31,16,00,000
8. Once Upon A Time In Mumbai Dobaara - 27,30,00,000
9. Himmatwala - 27,20,00,000
10. Shootout At Wadala - 25,63,00,000
The warning signs were there on day one as collections came off noticeably in the evening. The film saw one of the biggest day to days drops at 65%. The business over the first two days was a little under 26 crore nett.
