The lackluster spell of movies at cinemas continued for the past week too. The latest releases Sherdil and Laal Kabootar though showed good hold at the box office. Captain Marvel maintained its good run but the 4 weeks late release hampered its box office potential to a major extent. All eyes are on Avengers: Endgame now, cause no big release in between has dampened up the box office.
The 4th weekend of the film managed to earn 80 lacs which is a good result considering the release of DC Shazam and Captain Marvel. The film in total has managed 11.23 crores, which is an excellent result for this film. Sherdil has won over the audience, specially the masses, as the business has been excellent in Rawalpindi and Islamabad. The film seems like it would do well until the release of Avengers: Endgame and can manage up to 13-14 crores.
The complete breakdown is as follows:
Week 1: 6.05 Crores
Week 2: 2.65 Crores (approx)
Third Weekend: 80 lacs (approx)
Fourth Weekend: 80 lacs (approx)
Total: 11.23 crores
Laal Kabootar showed a remarkable consistency with only a 6% fall from the previous weekend that is 28 lacs from 30 lacs. The bad part for the film is that it could only do well on lower levels as the collections never showed a huge jump. This film owes its business to there being less competition, good amount of shows, and positive word of mouth.
Here is the complete breakdown of numbers:
Week 1: 1.29 Crores
Week 2: 82 lacs
Third Weekend: 30 lacs
Fourth Weekend: 28 lacs.
Total: 2.69 crores
The film has maintained good collections in the 2nd weekend i.e. 1.25 crores. The fall is little over 55% which is not bad considering the film has released after 4 weeks of its worldwide premiere. Being the last movie to come before the final installment of the global phenomenon Avengers saga, Avengers: Endgame, hits the screen, it had already carried a good hype. The movie’s business worldwide has also helped its cause in business in Pakistan.
The breakdown of numbers is as follows:
Week 1: 2.5 crores
Week 2: 1.25 crores.
Total: 3.75 crores
A final word
The numbers indicate that the down period for the cinemas still continues on. With Avengers: Endgame just ten days away of the release, the cinema owners have their eyes on the it to bring in numbers that the other local releases have failed to bring in. The end of the Bollywood ban is still nowhere in sight. And with Ramazan approaching, it looks like there is not going to be any other release that will share Avengers: Endgame‘s burden of bringing in the numbers at the box office until the three big Eid releases – The Legend of Maula Jutt, Challawa, and Wrong No. 2 hit the screens.
