East Punjab is the barometer for the actual trend of a film on Eid as mentioned before as Eid its not a prolonged Eid holiday in the circuit. The Monday trend is better in East Punjab as the Friday figures were not boosted by Eid. The drop in East Punjab is only 50% as against the national average of 57%.
The drop is less than other areas due to the Eid factor on Friday and also the film has found more appreciation in East Punjab and Delhi / UP. The multiplexes of North India is where the film is going to best. The markets of Centra India and Bihar have collected well due to Salman Khan and Eid but the appreciation in mass markets is not there which could be seen in the drop on day two as these places should hold much stronger on Bassi Eid. .
The growth in East Punjab on Saturday was better than the all India average as the collections came down in areas where Eid was holding them up on the third day. Below is what the trend of the film would have been if there is no leftover after the big Eid holiday. It is a healthy trend on Saturday with film going up 30% plus if things were all normal.
The trend below is how the film would gave behaved roughly in terms of drop if only the first day was a national holiday. The collections of Bharat over the first six days in East Punjab are as follows.
Wednesday - 3,98,00,000 (national holiday)
Thursday - 2,11,00,000 (-46.98%)
Friday - 1,64,00,000 (-22.27%)
Saturday - 2,16,00,000 (+31.71%)
Sunday - 2,38,00,000 (+10.19%)
Monday - 81,00,000 (-50.61% from Friday)
TOTAL - 13,08,00,000 apprx
The real trend till now is not great but its not bad either barring that hit on Sunday when growth should have been 10-15% more but the big match hit the film.
