Sarbjit 3rd Day Collection 3 Days Sarabjit 1st Weekend Box Office Business and Occupancy Report: Sarbjit is doing an average performance at the box office. The film was praised by the number of film critics for Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s acting and at the same time criticized for direction and unmeaningful stretching out of small scenes just to exceed the length of the film. On the other side, X-Men released on same time and that too before the United States in India. (check: Brahmotsavam collections.)
Aishwarya starrer Jazbaa had also struggled much on the weekends hardly minting out 25 crores net from the domestic box office. The similar trend is looking to followed by the movie Sarbjit. On Saturday, no traces of being a superhit film had been observed in the box office.
Sarbjit 3rd Day Box Office Collection
The film targets dual concept audience. First are the nationalists, those who can do anything for their country’s respect and the second is Punjabi audience. It’s a fact that many stories in Punjabi movies are based on struggle, romance, and love. Sarbjit collections are expected to perform better in states including Punjab, Haryana, and almost every northern state. (read: Sarbjit review.)
The movie opens with hardly 15% occupancy in the theaters averaging to 20% occupancy throughout the day in the most of the cities on Saturday. A similar pattern was observed on Friday with only 15% marks on Friday. It looks like producers of Sarbjit had done a disastrous mistake by trying to compete with a Punjabi film ‘Kaptaan’ with a movie of only 10-15 dialogues in Punjabi.
Even the Hollywood movie, X-Men is performing much better than Sarbjit at the box office. Sarbjit collected 3.69 cr net on day one which is very low for a film with such a whopping budget and star cast.
On the Day 2, the collections of Sarbjit movie was not much and limited to 4.5 crore rupees only which also raises another question on Aishwarya’s post-marriage career.
The movie’s budget was 25 crore rupees, because of having T Series itself as the production house, the film had been overall benefited in the perspective of cost savings with the help of optimizations. The film released on over 1500 screens throughout the country, initially.
Sarbjit Saturday Collections were around 4.56 crore rupees, and the movie is expected to end with 15 crore rupees collections with the end of this weekend. It’s not an easy to market for Bollywood movies now after getting into competition with the Hollywood films.
So all we can do is to wait and watch for the final report of Sarabjit Box Office Collections as they are the only thing which will govern whether the movie is a flop or a hit. No wonder what, Bollywood now needs to analyze and interpret the changing trends on the box office before starting shooting for any film whether on any topic or biopic.
Sarbjit collections on Day 3 Sunday were 5.21 crore rupees.
So as a conclusion Sarabjit failed to impress audience on Day 2 and on Day 3 as well
