Housefull 4 continues to fire at the box office as it has another huge day at the box office with collections in the 24 crore nett range. The drop is around 30% from the big national holiday as it remains a holiday in parts. There are many parts in the country which have hardly seen a drop in collections and there is a chance that the collections could go a little higher in the morning if mass numbers come in higher than they are estimated at present. This has been the scenario for the last two days as many areas outperform other parts due to the holiday.
Gujarat / Saurashtra is insane with huge collection and both Gujarat and Saurashtra are at record levels. The cities in UP, Madhya Pradesh and Bihar are around 10-20% down and even this drop is where there are multiplexes, the cities with single screens only have hardly dropped 10%.
The film has collected around 58 crore nett over the last two days which are the fourth and fifth day and this is supposed to be a hated film by the audience. Even allowing for the holiday factor a film does not collect at these levels when it has been totally rejected. The collections of the film are now in the 109 crore nett range in five days and there are two days of the week to go.
There will be a drop on Wednesday as the ticket rates drop at multiplexes and most metros come off the holiday period but some mass circuits will still be in holiday period and will collect well. The first week collections are still hard to judge as its hard to say what the drops will be but 125 crore nett will be there for sure and that is a very conservative estimate and the hope will be a higher first week finish.
