MERI PYAARI BINDU had a poor first day collecting around 1.75 crore nett apprx which makes it very tough for the film to do much at the box office. The film was for the youth and should have done better numbers in the big cities at least but when the hero is weak there is always that downside to initial and then it becomes about recovering. A DUM LAGA KE HAISHA managed that a few years back from an even lower level but that was a totally content film which was not really targeted at the youth. Here it is a youth film so you really need to start better as the DUM LAGA KE HAISHA type of growth is a big ask.
SARKAR 3 is a dull affair as it collected 2.25 crore nett apprx on day one. The collections are slightly better than MERI PYAARI BINDU but that is because it is double the screens of that film and occupancy practically all over is lower than MERI PYAARI BINDU. To put the opening in perspective is that the opening day of the film is less than half of SARKAR RAJ which was 4.97 crore nett and that film is the predecessor to this film and released way back in 2008. That film also did not do too well. Going back to 2005, the first film in this franchise opened at 2.43 crore nett which is also higher unless the SARKAR 3 final collections come in a little higher. The bottom line is that its not a franchise film and when the first one just about covered costs thanks to Mumbai and South it was best left alone.
