‘Meri Pyaari Bindu’ and ‘Sarkar 3’ are poor at box office on the opening day

Yash Raj Films’ ‘Meri Pyaari Bindu’ which released yesterday did a very poor business of around Rs 1.75 crore nett. That’s a very low number for a YRF movie and that too on the first day. Being a youth-oriented movie, it should have performed better in big cities at least but that didn’t happen either. With a budget of Rs 15 crore, the first day numbers are very low. Ayushmann Khurrana’s movie ‘Dum Laga Ke Haisha’ too started on a poor note but that wasn’t just a movie targeted for the youth, whereas this one is more youth-oriented. The movie needs a really good number over the weekend to be able to earn profits. (Also Read: ‘Meri Pyaari Bindu’ movie review: Makes an unfinished, variegated love story look beautiful)

‘Meri Pyaari Bindu’ clashed with Ram Gopal Varma‘s ‘Sarkar 3‘ starring megastar Amitabh Bachchan in the lead role. Although, ‘Sarkar 3’ did not get good reviews by the critics, the movie did a little better business than ‘Meri Pyaari Bindu’ as it did a business of Rs 2.25 crore nett. But, the reason is because the movie had double the screens of ‘Meri Pyaari Bindu’. However, the business of ‘Sarkar 3’ is still poor. The movie did half the business of ‘Sarkar Raj’ which had collected Rs 4.97 crore nett on its opening day. The first film in the franchise had opened to Rs 2.43 crore nett, so the business of ‘Sarkar 3’ is the lowest.

So, it clearly means that none of the movies managed to earn as expected. Is it because of the storm of ‘Baahubali 2′? It’s been two weeks that the movie released, but people have been still flocking theatres to watch the movie.
