Housefull 2 Opens TO Housefull Response at the boxofficePosted: April 6, 2012
Housefull 2 took a good opening at multiplexes with collections in the 70-75% region on average. The advance of the film had been very slow till Thursday when it really picked up and Friday has seen a good opening though well short of films like Agneepath and Bodyguard as they were released on Republic Day and Eid respectively and were action films.
The best opening came in North India, Gujarat, Rajasthan and CI where collections were 80% while Mumbai city, Maharashtra and South were more towards the 60-70% mark. In Punjab it took an excellent 80% start despite a volcano in the form of Punjabi film Mirza – The Untold Story hitting the state with over capacity houses.
Some centres in the North opened to 100% while there were some centres in the South which were less than 50%. Basically its good to very good opening in the core Hindi film circuits and a good to decent opening elsewhere. The single screen opening which gets going at noon should also be similar to the opening at multiplexes.
