Shoojit Sircar’s Madras Cafe has collected around Rs 4.5 – 4.75 crore on its opening day at the box office. The film started slow in the morning, but business picked up towards the end of the day at multiplexes in big cities.
Critics have praised the film and reports from theatres is excellent too, so Madras Cafe is likely to put up much better collections on Saturday and Sunday. We expect the weekend business to be around 16 – 17 crores, which is decent for a film carrying little or no pre-release hype.
The film will rely almost entirely on excellent word-of-mouth. So if you haven’t watched the film yet, go ahead and give it a try. Its easily one of the best films of 2013. Read our review on Madras Cafe.
