The Endgame, after having a splendid 10 days run at the local box office, seems to have reached a stopping point due to Ramzan. The film collected a total of 4 crores 75 lacs in the 2nd week, with the days post-Ramzan just adding a mere 50 lacs which otherwise could definitely have been huge.
We say this because the first-week gross went up to 23 crores and the cumulative total for the 2ndweekend was 4.25 crores. This number was huge considering the movie got a humungous number of shows (with as many as 50 shows in a single multiplex) in its first week and a majority of the people watched it in the first week as well but the movie held as strong as ever, on the second weekend too.
The Ramazan effect
The film has excellent repeat value but due to Ramazan, the 2nd viewings have not really happened in our country. The 3rd-weekend collections only came out to be just 50 lacs, which shows how massive the fall has been. The total collections of the film until now are 28 crores and 25 lacs approximately which in itself is a huge number. Avengers could have been the first Hollywood release to cross 30 crores but that doesn’t seem very likely now.
Internationally, Avengers: Endgame has reached a total of 2.485 billion approximately. The film, however, saw a little dip on its 3rd weekend, than its predecessors, which is not a great sign but the kind of numbers it managed in the first 17 days are still crazy, to say the least. In India, the film has crossed biggies like Tiger Zinda Hai and PK, becoming the third biggest film there with the total collections of 340 crores plus. The film has become the first Hollywood film ever to cross 600 million, beating the 2nd highest Fate of the Furious by a huge margin.
The run of Avengers seems to have died down in our local market but the race to become the highest grosser ever in the cinema history seems to be getting interesting in the coming days.
Let’s wait and see how the situation unfolds.
