The advance of Ready opened at single screens and results were fantastic. All over India, it was a unanimous verdict from single screen exhibitors.
The advance at single screens matched that of Dabangg and even bettered it at places. There is no doubt that the single screen opening on Friday is going to be humungous. It will be either best or second best ever. The results at multiplexes will tell if the right buzz and hype has been created for the film.
As Ready is Salman’s first release after Dabangg it will be compared to Dabangg even though Dabangg smashed all opening records by a distance.
Most in the trade seem to feel it will not have an opening weekend like Dabangg as the feeling is that promos are not as strong as Dabanng’s. But Salman is there and two hit songs, the Friday could come up to match Dabangg. If the film has good content then the Dabangg weekend is definitely under threat.
