Pari had a poor opening day of around 4 crore nett. The film started slowly but picked from the afternoon as Holi festivities got over. The 4 crore net opening would have been reasonable if it was a normal day but its a poor performance for a holiday.
It managed to beat the opening day numbers of Phillauri which grossed 3.86 crore nett but by a very small margin and it was a holiday so on real value the opening is lower.
The film is basically a psychological thriller which offers little entertainment for the audiences in India and on top it is devoid of music which is going to make it hard for the film going forward.
The film will be mainly for the five metros of Mumbai, Delhi, Pune, Kolkata and Bangalore but maybe you can take out Delhi from the equation as the genre tends to be very bad there unless supported by cast which is rare for these type of films.
The film has to show some solid growth coming off a holiday and that will be a big task for the film. It is an urban multiplex film so the above metros could grow but solid growth at an all India level is going to be hard to come by.
The other film Veerey Ki Wedding is very poor and opened to around 75-80 lakhs nett on its opening day which is a similar collection to last weeks Welcome To New York but the costs are much lower than that film.
