Box Office Trend Of GRAND MASTI HORROR STORY And JOHN DAY, After disappointment from big films like "Satyagraha", OUATIMD, "Zanjeer" and "Madras Cafe", "Grand Masti" shined big time on day one bringing smile back on faces of trade guys. Film went through the roof and surpassed all expectations.
Film was outstanding in Gujarat, Mumbai, Central India and UP. Film was almost 80% in morning to noon and then registered jump from evening onwards. At the moment, film looks to score 5th biggest opening day ("Satyagraha" 11.20 cr nett) of 2013 if not 4th ("Himmatwala" 12.10 cr nett).
This is easily heading for big weekend and from here 35 cr nett looks good as such films do not jump big over the weekend. Though 38-40 cr nett can not be ruled out.
Other new releases "Horror Story" was as bad and collections will be less than 1.25 cr nett. Other release "John Day" was complete washout and even 50-70 lakh on day one looks tough. Hollywood release "Grown Ups 2" received cold response
