We cannot vouch for the authenticity of these box office numbers given by independent box office tracking sites. We tried to get official numbers from the makers but the makers did not want to reveal the numbers. So until the official numbers come from the makers themselves or until we have some official box-office tracking system in Pakistan this is all we have got. Moreover at times the numbers are revised to dont worry if you see a slight change in the mentioned numbers.
It came and it conquered!
The film ‘Karachi Se Lahore’ hit cinemas and from the very first day itself it became obvious that the film was going to register some big numbers at the box office. Almost all shows were sold out and the word of mouth was extremely positive. So it did not come as a surprise when the film showed great growth on the second and third day.
Moreover the film maintained its numbers on the weekdays too and seven days after it first hit cinemas one could safely say that the film was a success. It should be noted that despite the fact that the film released on a non-holiday week and had to face tough competition from a handful of past releases it still managed to make its presence felt. One only wonders what magic the film would have cast at the box office had it released on Eid-ul-Fitr as its common knowledge that any and every film released during the Eid festivities is bound to get a boost.
But the film was yet to show its real magic as it made more money in its second weekend as compared to the first week. This can be attributed to the positive word of mouth which led to the film getting more shows in its second weekend. Moreover the film maintained its strong collections and hence managed to score a big week two.
This third weekend was very crucial for ‘KSL’ as three new Pakistani films were hitting cinemas and the showtimes were redistributed. But of the three new films not one has been able to put a dent into the collections of ‘KSL’. While ‘Shah’ and ‘Moor’ being off beat films were never going to do much but even ‘DMPS’ is fizzling away in the background. Looks like ‘KSL’ is here to stay!
Here are the day to day numbers:-
- Day 1: 40 lacs
- Day 2: 75 lacs
- Day 3: 75 lacs
- Day 4-7: 1.8 cr
- Day 8: 60 lacs
- Day 9: 80 lacs
- Day 10: 80 lacs
- Day11-14: 1.3 cr
- Day15-17: 75 lacs
- Day 18-21: 30 lacs
Total: 8.25 cr
Lets see how the film holds in the coming days. Stay tuned to Galaxy Lollywood for updates.
