Bhai as i said without knowing abt South BO dont talk...and blindly believing BOI will take you nowhere. OK I'll try to explain.
1) Its a common practice of telugu/tamil films to have Benefit fan shows (mostly after midnight on the day of release prior to morning shows). They are generally limited in number but not for Baahubali which had huge number of shows. The ticket prices went upto 1.5k-2k and even 2500-3k for some high profile shows. A theatre in kukatpally,Hyd was sold for 9L for a single show. Imagine huge number of such shows. And similar shows are held in karnataka and Chennai.
2) First day fig for AP/TG also includes fixed hires of C&D centres. For Ceded area these are added generally at the end of 1st week. All remaining areas fixed hires amount are added to 1st day.
3) These form a substantial amount in 1st day fig for AP/TG. From day 2, its all normal. So collections drop (figuratively. Only extra revenues subside) on 2nd day for every big film no matter how much positive WOM is there. The sunday collections will be better (or similar) than 2nd day as usual.
4) Unlike North which opened on low levels, Baahubali opened packed houses (100%) for whole weekend. The amount from these shows is fixed. Baahubali had no increase in shows in south (mainly in AP/TG where it collected max revenue initially) as it is released virtually in every theatre in AP/TG.Its only the benefit shows and fixed hires made 1st day bigger.
5) Unlike North, any biggie in south will open 90-100% on first day irrespective of whether its a holiday or not. So fall on next days is normal and it is like fall after Eid, Diwali next day, Christmas for BW films. All BW biggies have fall after these days as they are national holidays so have record turnout and next day wont match. Its a similar situation.
6) Only Hindi dubbed version showed growth on 2nd and 3rd days. Other versions took a huge start already. There is no chance for them to grow further.
And before getting sarcastic (like in the last line).....if u dont know how South BO works.....better dont bring trade figs and argue on basis of figs. And take that simple logic and apply for BW....that doesnt work for South BO
