The first release of 2015 has bombed at the domestic box office, as Arjun Kapoor’s Tevar has failed to show the growth it needed on Saturday. The film was below-the-mark at both mass centres and multiplexes in cities where the response has been incredibly poor.
The costs were on the higher side and Tevar needed a opening of around 9-10 crore to have any chance at the box office. However, when the opening numbers were poor, the film had to show 25-30% growth on Saturday. Unfortunately, while a few centres did show decent growth, others that opened reasonably well on Friday were down on Saturday.
After films like Jai Ho, Dishkiyaaoon, Kochadaiiyaan, Lekar Hum Deewana Dil, Happy Ending, Purani Jeans, Lingaa and Action Jackson, Eros International is set to lose atleast Rs 20 crore on Tevar. The film had to collect around Rs 75-80 crore net for Eros to break-even, but looking at the Saturday trends, Tevar might finish below the 50 crore mark.
