Krrish 3 Box Office: First Day Evening Update

Krrish 3Krrish 3 opened to an earth-shattering start in the morning and continued its fantastic run during the noon shows. There are reports that business has dropped at places in the evening, as celebrations for the first day of the 5-day Diwali festival (Dhanteras) has begun all over the country. Although the advance booking for the night shows in cities is very good, business is likely to be lower than films that managed to put up 30 crore+ on first day.

Diwali is a big festival in India and the pre-diwali period is known to affect business, but the opening of Krrish 3 is better than non-holiday releases like Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani and Dabangg 2. Morning shows were only about 10-15% lower than Chennai Express – which is outstanding because today is a working day.

Coming to the word-of-mouth, initial reports are good. Exhibitors are extremely happy with the kind of response that the film has got, but it remains to be seen how well the film fares on Saturday and Sunday. And more importantly, if it picks up on Monday, a holiday for Diwali.

As expected, the youngest section of the audience are loving Krrish 3, but reports from mass centres – where the audience watch films for good music, romance and massy action – is mixed.



  • just watched the movie now. loved it. there s a lot of improvement as far as vfx goes. really happy for that. really kudos to the k3 team and also not to forget red chillies vfx. man commendable job. really a standing ovation would be less I presume.
    question to Indicine. with 500 screens more and about 40 to 50 percent ticket hike in major multiplayer across the country WY won’t it break tsunami express collections.
    sincere advice to all
    rise above the hatred and see once Atleast what India is capable of.

  • 1st day 28 cr..2nd day 19 cr..3rd day 25 cr..weekend 72 cr…1st week 116 cr..2nd week 48 cr..lifetime maximum 190 cr..

  • No surprise there, not only today is a working day, but also it happens to be Dhanteras, and many people have went for the shopping from evening onward. Weekend collections will also be affected by Diwali. I must say, a pre Diwali release isn’t best or even good for business, now the weekend collection is also likely to be low for such a big film due to Diwali coming on Sunday. It will heavily depend on Monday’s collection to see how far will it go, although it’s going to be a success anyway. It can even create some new records from Monday onward, since the response is good. A film producer would never want Diwali to come on Sunday. Diwali on Thursday following by Friday release would be a dream scenario for any big movie.
    Any report about it’s performance and response in overseas?

  • I’m expecting around 25 crore opening, and tomorrow should be little higher than today’s collection, and Sunday should again see a drop. Then the real game begins from Monday onward.

  • it has 8% prize hike but it fails to beat srk & salman by is good 1st total but we can’t call it excellent.tomorrow will be big drop about 25-35%.

  • According to boi first day collection will be in the range of 22-24 crore weekend will be 65 crore.
    First week collection will be 140 crore.

  • i made a bet quit long with one of the Krrish loved who said it will break CE box office record..and after watching the film last show today i can double bet it will not cross 170 cr in India..and as its such a atupid movie if gets rejected by the audience then not even 150 cr..and again same bet goes for D3..but yes D3 can be 180 -200 cr lifetime..but 200 cr??..No Way!

  • According to Box Office India, First day collection of Krrish 3 will be Lower than Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani(19.5 Cr)….

  • Krissh 3 Finds It Tough Against Pre-Diwali Phase

    Krrish 3 is finding it tough to stand up against the Pre-Diwali phase. The film started on strongly enough in the morning and the opening was fantastic at most places but not across the board.

    Then from noon the film slowed from its fast start especially at the multiplexes. This is normal occurrence on a non holiday for films which have wide release and open strongly as when the pace is strong in the morning it is not sustained throughout the day while on holidays the pace is sustained through the day.

    Krrish 3 has another force against it which is the Pre-Diwali period and that too a release so close to Diwali when a big chunk of the audience stays away from theatres.

    A pre-Diwali period release does not hurt much when you are looking for mid-range numbers but big numbers are very tough as there is a limited audience out there. Krrish 3 (Hindi) may struggle to get the highest non holiday opening day (19.50 crore nett approx) which was a realistic possibility before release. If it does get there with a bit of help from evening shows it will be by a very small margin. There is a dubbed Tamil and Telugu version of the film which is showing on around 350 screens adding to the 3700 screens in Hindi.
