Dev .D Becomes A Hit
Dev.D, Mere Khwabon Mein Jo Aaye and Chal Chala Chal, were the three releases last week. While CCC and MKMJA carshed miserably, Dev.D to some extent managed to hit the spot.
Dev.D, Anurag Kashyap?s modern day adaptation of Saratchandra?s famous novel opened with 25-30% collections for the first show. It saw poor collections at single screens. Word of mouth saw a rise in collections in select multiplexes of Mumbai, Delhi, Bangalore and Hyderabad. The day ended with around Rs 1.5 crore net collections.
The weekend collections were good in many multiplexes across different cities. The first three days? net collections for Dev.D was approximately Rs 5.50 crore. Trade sources are forecasting around Rs 8 crore net collections for the first week, which is definitely good for a medium-budgeted film.
The opening weekend collections in major multiplexes across the country were ? Cinemax 55-60%, PVR 60-65%, Fame 60-70%, Fun Cinemas 60% and BIG Cinemas 55-60%.
