22nd May 2015 was surely a historic day for Pakistan and specially for Pakistani Cinema as the country’s first animated feature film “3 Bahadur” was released in cinemas. It was a day worth celebrating as a milestone had been achieved by us Pakistani’s and had given us something to be proud of. Furthermore what made the day even bigger was the fact that Pakistan was finally, after a six year long hiatus, hosting a cricket tournament in its home ground so the mood in the country was obviously of celebration. However it is a known fact that whenever there has been cricket activity, the box office for a film has suffered, and “3 Bahadur” was no exception.
But the collections are still nothing short of magic because one needs to take into account that it was an animated film which does not appeal to a huge crowd and furthermore it was facing tough competition from “Tanu Weds Manu Returns” “Tomorrowland” “Mad Max” and “Poltergeist”. However the film faced all its competition in the true “bahadur” style and has emerged successful by registering strong numbers at the box office.
Here are the day wise collections for the film:-
Monday:- 20 lacs
Total :- 1.5 crore
Lets see how the film holds in the coming days. Stay tuned to Galaxy Lollywood for all the updates.
