Piku To Do Well At Multiplexes; Kuch Kuch Locha Hai In The Mass Belts : Trade Experts

It's Friday and the screens have new cinema to show. The upcoming weekend gives for a choice to the cinema goers with two diametrically opposite films Piku and Kuch Kuch Locha Hai.

With Piku starring the powerhouse performers like Amitabh BachchanDeepika Padukone and Irrfan Khan and the latter stars Sunny Leone, who has manage to get good audiences, and Ram Kapoor; it will be quiet interesting to see which film will lead and result good numbers in their own space.

Here is what the exhibitors said:

Ashok Ahuja (Consultant sales distribution & IPR management. Ishka films & Mangalmurti films)
Piku will do extremely well and will go from strength to strength at the Box Office. The marketing & promotions have created the desired buzz. Kuch Kuch Locha Hai will do well specially in the mass belts. So it goes without saying Piku will take a head start & lead all the way.

Akshaye Rathi (Exhibitor)
Courtesy the drastic difference between the audience bases that the two films cater to, I certainly see them co-existing smoothly at the cinemas. While Piku will do a lot better at the multiplexes and the top grade single screens, Kuch Kuch Locha Hai should draw in the audience at mass centers and notch up decent numbers. However, between the 2, I see Pikuas the film which will have a relatively longer shelf life at the cinemas courtesy a positive word of mouth, which is already making the rounds after the preview screenings.

PIKU Takes A Good Start, KUCH KUCH LOCHA HAI Struggles 

Bollywood films have disappointed and no big films made impact in last 6 months except ''PK''. This year not a single mainstream masala Bollywood film worked and to make situation worse Hollywood biggies ''Fast & Furious 7'' and ''Avengers Age Of Ultron'' over-performed. Today two films ''Piku'' and ''Kuch Kuch Locha Hai'' are releasing of diverse genre. 

''Piku'' is produced by Sony MSM and distributed by Yash Raj Films. Film released in 1600 - 1800 screens and it has opened to glowing reviews and decent occupancy. Film is solid in metros especially in Delhi, Mumbai and Bangalore. Film has opening of 35% and it seems that with good word of mouth, film can score very good day one around 5 cr nett and it can go higher depending on evening shows.

''Kuch Kuch Locha Hai'' is another Sunny Leone starrer and has real bad reviews. Film released under 1000 screens and going by the competition at box office, film will find it tough to collect even 2 cr nett on day one. Film will be very lucky to reach this figure after poor performance of last Sunny Leone starrer ''Ek Paheli Leela''. 

It seems that ''Gabbar Is Back'' will also will be in mix and might challenge ''Piku'' and for sure will overpower Sunny Leone starrer in single screens.

BO update: Piku starts strong; KKLH dull

By Bollywood Hungama News Network, May 8, 2015 - 14:33 IST

This week we see the release of two starkly contrasting films PIKU and KUCH KUCH LOCHA HAI (KKLH). While the first directed by Shoojit Sircar featuring Amitabh Bachchan, Deepika Padukone and Irrfan Khan heralds the return of drama, the latter KKLH directed by Devang Dholakia featuring Sunny Leone and Ram Kapoor is said to be a comic entertainer. 

As expected PIKU, that has been in the news has opened to a strong start with morning shows featuring an occupancy rate of 40%. However KKLH has started on a slow note with a meager 20% occupancy rate, while Akshay Kumar's GABBAR IS BACK that continues its run at the box office fares much better. 

On the whole, PIKU is expected to dominate the weekend, while GABBAR IS BACK will hold strong. KKLH on the other hand will have to rely heavily on positive reviews and good word of mouth to compete with the other films. To Movie News
