Even though there are three new Hindi films in the running and two holdover releases, this is Kantaras (Hindi) One who is holding his flag high and enjoying the race uninterrupted. Reminds me of the trend so far pushpa (Hindi) which started off slowly and then continued for several weeks. The difference though is that the Allu Arjun starrer came out only by the end of the first week and needed steady collections on a day-to-day basis. In the case of Kantaras (Hindi), the country woke up to it after almost a few weeks.
The results were first seen in the third week which was the biggest among them all and now in the fourth week, the collection is poised to get even better. This was first seen last weekend when the collection was Rs. 10 crore marks, courtesy Saturday and Sunday is over Rs. 4 crores each. Now weekdays are ready to add on extra Moolah as well as on Monday Rs. 2 crores. This means that the film, which earned Rs. So far around Rs 64.40 crore may be the fourth week. 20 crores, something that 90% of the movies this year fail to bring in in their first week itself!
related to phonebhootUnfortunately, its lifetime may be less than Rs. 200 million. The film could not see the jump in expected numbers during the weekend and all hopes were pinned on weekdays with Friday being closer. However, the start is not on the same lines and on Monday Rs. 1.34 crores. Consequently, the collection stands at Rs. 9.19 crores and the first week may well move towards Rs. 13-14 cr range. Considering the entertainment quotient, it should definitely do a lot.
Note: All collections according to production and distribution sources
