Phantom has done well on its first weekday at the domestic box office by collecting Rs 4.4 crore on Monday. The drop from Friday is around 45%, which is better than normal.
The film has collected Rs 37.58 crore in 4 days and the first week total is expected to be in the 48-49 crore range.
The problem for Phantom is the competition that it faces in its 2nd week. A big film like ‘Welcome Back’ is scheduled to release in theatres this week, followed by ‘Hero’ the week after. Even films that carry good word-of-mouth have very little breathing space these days. Classic example of which is a film like ‘Drishyam’, which had the potential to do 90-100 crore business if it released during a more favourable period.
Tuesday Update: Business on Tuesday was steady at multiplexes. The drop from Monday is less than 10% at most places.
