Akshay 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% occupancy.
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.
