Kumar's latest movie Rowdy Rathore, which features
Sonakshi Sinha alongside him, has
opened to a massive response at the Box
Office. The film is expected to be Akki's biggest opener. If we
are to go by the early trends, it will rake in more than Rs 15
crores at the collection centres across the world.
Rowdy Rathore has registered 95% to 100% occupancy at
single screens, which is in par with big-ticket films like
Agneepath and Housefull 2 and Bodyguard.
But it did not have that electrifying start at the multiplexes
across the country, where it witnessed just 55% to 70%
Trade analysts feel that the average response in multiplexes for
the film Rowdy Rathore was due to the problem in the
advance booking following the Bharat Bandh on Thursday. Another
reason was the mass-friendly appeal of the movie, which usually
have a slow start at multiplexes.
However, Rowdy Rathore is action thriller, which is a
remake of Blockbuster Telugu movie Vikramarkudu. Directed
by Prabhu Deva, the film has received fare reviews from the film
critics, who have rated it an average of 3 out of 5. The movie is
expected to join the club of hundred crore movies of this year like
Agneepath and Housefull 2.
