Gabbar Is Back starring Akshay Kumar
turned out to be the biggest opener of 2015, thereby giving some
hope to the Indian Box Office of finally making some money, after
some disastrous movie releases this year.
Hollywood flicks like Furious 7 and Avengers did do till the 100
crore mark, but none of the recent Bollywood releases could hit the
100 crore mark, neither they could survive in the market for
Akshay's Gabbar Is back had a lot of anticipation as
this was a remake and people wanted to know if Akshay gave justice
to the role. The reviews from critics were both positive and
negative, but most of the reviews did say the movie was not as good
as the south original.
In spite of these negative reviews, Gabbar Is Back
opened to a 75% occupancy in the morning shows which quite
staggering considering that usually Friday first shows are not
always houseful unless it is Shahrukh or Salman Khan.
Akshay's film received whistles from fans through out the movie,
which showed that negative reviews don't mean a thing as long as
the youth is enjoying the movie.
People loved it and with good word of mouth promotion the movie
will pick up even more overt the weekend. With 75% occupancy in
theaters all over the country, Gabbar Is Backhas
grossed Rs 13.05 crores as it's opening day collection.
