Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahani, the latest film from Karan Johar, hit double digits on Day 1 at the box office, collecting ₹11.10 crore. However, the response to the film has been lopsided, with major centres performing well while tier 2 and tier 3 centres not performing to optimum capacity.
The film’s opening day collection is lower than what was expected, but it is still a decent start. The film will need to perform well in the coming days to be a hit.
The lopsided response to the film is likely due to the fact that it is a niche film that appeals to a certain audience. The film is a romantic comedy-drama with a strong female lead, which may not be to the taste of everyone.
However, the film has received positive reviews from critics, who have praised the performances of Alia Bhatt and Ranveer Singh. The film also has a strong word-of-mouth buzz, which could help it perform well in the coming days.
Only time will tell whether Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahani will be a hit, but it has certainly made a decent start on Day 1.
Here are some of the factors that could affect the film’s box office performance in the coming days:
- The response from the audience in tier 2 and tier 3 centres.
- The word-of-mouth buzz.
- The release of other films in the coming weeks.
If the film is able to perform well in tier 2 and tier 3 centres and if the word-of-mouth buzz is positive, then it has a good chance of being a hit. However, if the film does not perform well in these centres or if the word-of-mouth buzz is negative, then it may not be able to cross the ₹100 crore mark.
We will have to wait and see how the film performs in the coming days.
