Diwali day turned out to be dull for the industry. Collections were expected to be below par but not as low as they turned out to be. Saturday should bring much better collections. Overall collections were 50% of what they should have been had it been a normal Friday
Golmaal 3 managed good collections if we account for the festivities on Diwali. The early estimate for day one is 6.25 crore nett approx.
Action Replay was bad with an early day one estimate of 2.25 crore nett. The collection is very low even accounting for festivities.
Saturday will see a big jump in the business of both films especially Action Replayy as opening is just too low and it will be interesting to see what levels they reach as the real box office battle gets going from Saturday.
