Merry Christmas Fails To Grow Big Over Weekend
Film was carrying low pre release buzz due to dull music and cliche trailer. Film didn’t appeal to masses which is need of hour and that’s why low opening was expected.
Film opened to low numbers on day one morning and due to mixed reports, film failed to grow throughout the day. Film collected 2.30 cr nett Hindi (2.55 cr nett all India) on day one which is way below par. Film jumped by 52% on day two and collected 3.15 cr nett Hindi (3.50 cr nett all India). Film will cross 3.60 cr nett Hindi (3.95 cr nett all India) on day three with marginal growth.
Film crossed 9 cr nett Hindi and 10 cr nett including dubbed languages over weekend which is very poor total.
Merry Christmas Box Office Collection
Friday: 2.30 cr Hindi (25 lacs dubbed)
Saturday: 3.15 cr Hindi (35 lacs dubbed) (52% growth)
Sunday: 3.60 cr Hindi (35 lacs nett dubbed) (15% growth)
Total: 9.05 cr nett Hindi (70 lacs nett dubbed)
Film needed bigger jumps over weekend for any chance after such a low opening day. Film will struggle on weekdays and will finish with under 20 cr nett lifetime. Flop show from Sreeram Raghavan after super hit and acclaimed Andhadun!
