Mission Mangal is a huge winner at the box office as collections hold up very strongly on its second day. The second day is a normal working holiday and a 50% drop is a healthy trend but this film is looking at a 40% drop only if we go by the mornings collections against the morning collections of yesterday. It could even be the drop is less in the evening collections.
After putting up a 28 crore nett plus day even if the film had dropped 55-60% it would have been a good result but it is sure to do better than that. The film should be able to collect 15 crore nett mark though it will be evening collections which will give a more accurate estimate. The film has done outstanding business in Mumbai, Mysore and West Bengal where it is out performing and is heading to to be a SUPERHIT / BLOCKBUSTER film.
The film was a quickie made in no time and shot for around 30 days and at a production cost of just 32 crore (without Akshay Kumar and P&A) which is looking to be covered in its 3 day all India share and the way the film is trending it will not be stopping after the first 3 or 4 days as the film has worked with its target audience. It may not be across the board as mass centres are less but the holiday has got it some numbers in these places where it may not have done otherwise and now the multiplexes in the big cities will take it to huge success.
My take:I doubt they will ever analyse excluding Remuneration and PnA like they do for Akki, even Bharat's budget without Salman's remuneration and PnA will be~120, can we consider that as budget
