Akshay Kumar's Brothers Has Average Opening Weekend

Image
Brothers grossed 49.75 crore nett over its first weekend and though the figure is good it does not tell the complete story. The near 50 crore nett business has mainly come due to the big Independence day holiday on Saturday while on Friday and Sunday the film has not performed. The film grossed 13.50 crore nett on Friday, 21.25 crore nett on Saturday and 15 crore nett on Sunday.
The business on Sunday was a killer though the warning signs were there on Saturday as key centers did not grow as they should gave. Still as next day was a Sunday, you would have thought the film to get away with it and a  small drop but it was not to be.
The business on Sunday is much lower than a film like Holiday
 and even lower than Gabbar Is Back. The Sunday drop will
probably mean it will be tough going on the weekdays.
Due to the fact that the weekend us inflated by the big holiday
 and the poor trend it has practically no chance to add 50% on
 weekdays to its weekend business.  ( BOI )
