Joker opens to poor response
Boxofficeindia.Com Trade Network
JOKER opened to a poor response of around 20% on its first day. The collections were better at single screens, possibly due to the cast. The theatrical fate of the film is dependent on whether the family and kids audience takes to it on Saturday and Sunday.
The first-day collections are 5 crores. The film will need to show around 30% growth on Saturday and Sunday to have any chance of a decent run at the box office. If the growth is not big on Saturday then theatrical business will not be going far.
The film is one of the lowest openers of Akshay Kumar in the last few years if we take 8×10 TASVEER out of the equation. The other low openers were ACTION REPLAYY (2010) and PATIALA HOUSE (2011) which opened to 2.75 crore nett and 4.25 crore respectively.
