Captain Marvel had a very good first day at the box office with collections in the 13.50-14 crore nett range. This is the highest Hollywood opening day day collection after Avengers - Infinity War which went to a huge 30 crore nett plus number.
The film does not have much to offer the Indian audience especially in the dubbed languages but the Marvel branding is too strong. The opening practically ensures a good first weekend which will probably be next to Avengers - Infinity War. The film has registered better opening day occupancy at multiplexes better than all Hindi films in 2019. Single screens are less than Total Dhamaal.
Badla picked up well in the late afternoon and evening shows to record collections in the 5 crore nett range. The film hardly looked 4 crore nett in the morning but that was as it had nothing for the youth but the evening crowd did come for the film in the metros.
This should ensure a good pick up on Saturday and a respectable weekend with the test coming on Monday. The last film of Amitabh Bachchan as main lead was 102 Not Out which collected a little under 3.50 crore nett so this film is a lot better than that even if we alllow for the new tax rates there is still a 1 crore nett difference and that too despite being released on fewer screens.
