Vikramaditya Motwane’s Trapped showed good growth in business over the weekend, but the starting point was so low that the film had little or no chance. For a film that was running on close to 2900 shows at multiplexes over the entire weekend, the occupancy on an average was less than 30 people per show.
The occupancy was dismal on the opening day, but it continued to improve on Saturday and went up further on Sunday. The appreciation is there among a section of the audience, but that section is too small for the film to recover its costs.
Unless Monday collections are at around Saturday levels – which isn’t going to be the case looking at the level of business until afternoon (also the cheaper ticket prices at multiplexes during weekdays) – the fate of yet another Vikramaditya Motwane film is almost certainly sealed.
