Half Girlfriend had a decent first week collection of 47 crore nett but after a good weekend the film just about managed to stay above water on the weekdays. The film had a noticeable drop on Monday and then normal falls over the weekdays. The film is depending on the second weekend and it makes the second Friday crucial as that has to be decent for it to record respectable second week figures. The main plus for the film is the opening and if it does pull through it will be mainly down to the initial.
Hindi Medium has average first week collections of 23 crore nett but a strong weekday trend which should see a very healthy second week total. In fact it will probably beat the second week of Half Girlfriend despite the first week only being 50% of Half Girlfriend. The film has not been appreciated in many areas but has found a strong liking by the metro crowd and that will be more than enough for the film. The tax exemption in Maharashtra has really helped its cause in Mumbai and Pune and Delhi NCR has done well as the film has the local flavour. The film has chances to emerge a HIT depending on the business over the next few dsys.
