Piku and BV have opened to similar occupancies in the morning shows of day 1.

Bombay Velvet Box Office Opening

1 min ago
1 min read

Bombay Velvet has taken a disastrous opening at the box office, which has pretty much sealed its fate on Friday morning itself. At smaller centres there are reports that shows of the film are getting cancelled.

The Anurag Kashyap film has opened lower than Ranbir Kapoor's last release Roy', which had taken a decent opening due to good music and Ranbir's presence. At most centres, the occupancy is even lower than Akshay Kumar's Baby.

With landing costs in excess of Rs 110 crore, Bombay Velvet was one of the costliest films made in Bollywood and by far the most expensive film of 2015. But, with the kind of opening it has taken, even a film made on half the costs would have struggled to recover.

To add to the woes, Bombay Velvet hasn't been received well by the critics either. The reviews are mixed, which wasn't the case with most Anurag Kashyap films.

Morning show occupancy for films released in 2015

  • Avengers - 68%
  • Fast and Furious 7 - 65%
  • Gabbar Is Back - 45% (partial holiday)
  • Roy - 38%
  • Detective Byomkesh Bakshi - 35% (holiday)
  • Badlapur - 30%
  • Tevar - 30%
  • Baby - 25%
  • Bombay Velvet - 20%
  • Piku - 18%
  • Shamitabh - 15%
  • NH10 - 15%
  • Mr X - 10%
  • Dum Laga Ke Haisha - 8%

Bombay Velvet has a (much) wider release. But its lifetime probably won't be much more than Piku. Piku will do 50+ lifetime.

With reviews BV is getting, audience will still prefer to go and watch Piku hence they have got one more week at BO!
So Piku will have more collections...

How is that even possible. Piku has like only 700 screens from today as against BV's 3k screens.
Also, todays is a working day. BV's collections will definitely pick up over the weekend.

I know people are calling the movie a disaster, but you can predict a movie's outcome just after a round of shows, because even Piku's occupancy was dire last Friday.
