Akshay Kumar’s Boss has opened to a phenomenal response all over India on Wednesday. The first day business is likely to be around 15-16 crore, as the film has taken a great start at single-screens and managed to sustain well throughout the day.
In fact, at single screens, occupancy for most shows was better than Rowdy Rathore and comparable to major films like Chennai Express and Ek Tha Tiger. For a film that released during the pre-diwali period and amidst all the Bakrid celebrations, the opening has exceeded trade expectations.
Multiplex business has been slightly under-whelming, but the audience response to the film is generally positive. So unlike Besharam a couple of weeks ago, Boss is likely to take advantage of the extended 5 day weekend.
When the final collections come in, the first day collections of Boss could well be better than the combined opening day business of Akshay’s last two films Once Upon Ay Time In Mumbaai Dobaara and Special 26.
The film has performed well in most circuits – West Bengal, Mysore (and Mumbai in the morning) were comparatively lower than other territories. Mass-dominated centres like Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, Rajasthan, C.P and C.I have been outstanding.
