Mumbai: Hollywood movies have been getting very good opening at the
Indian Box Office. Recently, it was Fast and
Furious 6, which had topped the collection chart, beating
Bollywood movies. Now, it is the turn of the much-awaited film
Man Of Steel (MOS), which has not only got good
start, but also has overtaken the new Hindi releases like
and Ankur Arora Murder Case (AAMC).
Snyder-directed Man Of Steel is a sic-fi superhero
film and its promo videos and posters have created lot of curiosity
among the film goers in India. Its makers have had massive
publicity for it. Besides this, the movie has garnered rave reviews
from international film critics, who have given 3 to 4 rating out
of 5. All these aspects enabled the movie to register a good amount
of advance ticket booking in the country.
Fitting to its pre-release hype, Man Of Steel has
received a thunderous opening at the Indian Box Office. The movie
registered 60% to 65% occupancy in the morning and matinee shows in
the country on its opening day. Although its occupancy is not equal
to that of Fast and Furious 6, it is far better than many
big Bollywood releases of the year 2013. It is expected to show big
jump over the weekend.
Whereas Fukrey and Ankur Arora Murder Case are
much-hyped and highly-awaited Hindi movies. They have got a poor
start at the domestic Box Office. They have registered an average
of 15% to 20% occupancy in the morning and matinee shows in the
country on their opening day. Both have garnered rave reviews from
film critics, who have given them generous rating. Trade experts
feel that they will have a big leap on Saturday and Sunday.
