Sonam Kapoor's Neerja has fared very well on the opening day at the Indian Box Office. The film directed by Ram Madhvani and jointly produced by Atul Kasbekar and Fox Star Hindi is being loved by one and all.
This film is based on Neerja Bhanot and stars actors, Shabana Azmi, Shekhar Ravjiani and others in small but pivotal roles. Having released in 700 screens in India and made with a budget of Rs 21 crores, the film opened to 40% occupancy in the morning shows.
The film initially did not attract much attention for one did not expect Sonam's film to have any value but suprisingly this film turned out to be one of the best performances in her life and the best movie she has ever been a part of.
Ram Madhvani's film is a perfect biopic with barely any flaws, for the first time every critic had only praises for the movie. Neerja was out and out loved by every critic and viewers.
Trade espert Taran Adarsh reported, "#Neerja: Strong merits + Superb word of mouth + Glowing reviews spread like wild fire, even before Day 1 could come to a close. Biz witnessed SUPER growth towards evening/night shows. Numbers multiplied rapidly, especially at metros."
He further reported day one collections, "Fri ₹ 4.70 cr [700 theatres/limited shows]. India biz... Expect biz to zoom upwards on Sat and Sun... Quality cinema triumphs."
This positive word of mouth appreciation worked tremendously for the film, which resulted in increase of occupancy in the noon and evening shows. Weekend figures will be much higher as most of the shows are housefull.
Neerja is doing well in both rural and urban areas with the night shows being fully booked. Neerja clashed with three other movies, Loveshhuda, Direct Ishq and Ishq Forever, but none of these could give it a tough fight for all the three recevied very bad reviews.
