JAGGA JASOOS grossed 8.25-8.50 crore nett apprx on its first day which is a low figure for a film with Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif. The film did not show much of a pick up post the 6pm shows as the film despite being a content film which should grow is not for that adult evening audience. Hence it remained pretty much flat in the evenings. The film is mainly for children who watch English children channels and this should enable growth on Saturday and Sunday as the families and kids come out in metros but the film needed much wider appreciation to recover its huge costs.
The film was best in Mumbai city and Bangalore while the Hindi belt hardly collected. The film is not a BOMBAY VELVET as the film will get some sort of weekend audience but not being BOMBAY VELVET is hardly an achievement. The opening is the seventh best of the year but well short of a double digit opening which is a must when there is the presence of stars. Out of the big films the opening is better than KAABIL only. The opening is lower than ROY which featured Ranbir Kapoor in a guest role and managed a 9.39 crore nett opening. BARFI which had the same director opened to a similar figure to JAGGA JASOOS (8.18 crore nett).
The Hollywood release WAR FOR THE PLANET OF THE APES fared poorly with around 2 crore nett coming on day one. The film was released on around 1000 screens and this a very poor return for the film.
