Hindi movie Himmatwala, which has been touted to
be the next Rs 100 crore film of Ajay Devgn, has received a decent opening
at the Indian Box Office on Friday. But its initial response is not
upto the hype that it has created prior its release. Trade experts
opine that despite being a solo, the Sajid Khan directed flick may not
surpass the first day collection record of Ajay's last release
Son Of Sardar.
Himmatwala is a remake of the 1983 action romance film
of the same name, which was Blockbuster at the Box Office. It is
one of the most-hyped and highly-anticipated Hindi movies of 2013.
The producer has done massive promotions for it prior its release.
Besides this, it is the only Hindi film that has hit the screens
this Friday, which is holiday due to Good Friday.
Trade expects had predicted that Himmatwala would get a
record breaking opening. But its opening response is not up to the
mark. In the morning and matinee shows, the movie has registered
good occupancy at single screens in mass oriented circuits like UP,
Bihar, Gujarat, CP, CI and Rajasthan. Whereas it has a very poor
amount of footfalls across the country.
However, Himmatwala starring Ajay Devgn and Tamanna Bhatia in
leads, is expected to show a big jump in afternoon and night shows.
It should be seen whether it will break the opening day record of
Son Of Sardar.
