Box Office Chup sells 1.30 lakh tickets, and Dhokha posts a respectable 65,000 advance.

On R Balki’s Chup: Revenge of The Artist, Sunny Deol, Dulquer Salmaan, Pooja Bhatt, and Shreya Dhanwanthary collaborate for the first time. The movie, which has been rated A – Adults Only by the Central Board of Film Certification, debuts today, or on September 23, across the nation. Pen Marudhar, who this year has released films like Gangubai Kathiawadi and RRR, is the distributor of Chup.

The film was originally intended for a limited 600 screen release, but the screens have since been increased to over 800 because of the demand on the first day, which was higher in terms of ticket sales than all Hindi-language releases this year, with the exception of Brahmastra, which was a much larger film. For mid- and low-budget movies, the advantage of cheap ticket prices can be apparent because, in a perfect world, they would open to lower ticket sales and foot traffic.

In India, cinema networks have sold over 1.3 million tickets in advance for the movie, which is a fantastic outcome. It demonstrates the audience’s propensity to visit theatres to see movies with moderately priced tickets. The issue is that the foot traffic is concentrated on day 1 and there is little to no advance for Saturday and Sunday because a sizable portion of the potential viewers are watching it on the very first day thanks to the discounted ticket prices. The film will get a good foundation for the word of mouth to spread. We are in for a good day in terms of prospective spectators, based only on the first day’s ticket sales proceeds.

Dhokha, which stars R Madhavan, Aparshakti Khurana, Khushalii Kumar, and Darshan Kumar, sold over 65000 tickets across multiplex chains on its opening day, which is a commendable accomplishment considering that it outperformed movies like Laal Singh Chaddha, Shamshera, Samrat Prithviraj, Bachchhan Paandey, and more in terms of advance ticket sales. The nett receipts won’t even come close to those films’ totals since in addition to having low ticket prices, it will also have capacity constraints that will limit its ability to expand much.

The 23rd of September’s ticket sales across multiplexes in India are highly encouraging since they demonstrate that the public is prepared to see independent films in theatres as well, provided that ticket prices are kept in check. A compromise must be found so that everyone along the value chain can profit, as Rs. 75 is below what can be considered a sustainable rate.
