After crashing to new lows in the last couple of days, Besharam has finally managed to pick up at the domestic box office. The morning and noon shows were about the same level as Friday, but the evening and nights shows had better occupancy.
The film has picked up by around 10-15% at multiplexes, while single-screen business didn’t show much improvement. In some centres business was on par with Thursday, while in multiplex dominated areas it was the second best day for the film, even though it wasn’t close to the levels of the first day business.
Again, as per estimates based on collections from a few centres, Besharam has collected around 6.5 crores on Saturday, which is way below the mark for a film released on 3500+ screens. The screen-count is already down, as shows have been reduced at multiplexes across the country.
In 4 days, Besharam has collected around 38.5 cr and might add around 7-8 cores on Sunday. The 5-day extended weekend will be 45-46 crore. Given the negative response, a crash on Monday is inevitable.
Besharam should finish with lifetime business of less than 60 crore. All-India Distributor share will be around 33-34 crore, making it one of the biggest disasters in recent times – much like our pre-release box office prediction!
