Jagga Jasoos picked up its box office collections on day 3, the 1st Sunday after its release on July 14. An absolute Disney Movie, Jagga Jasoos has been able to pull families and children to the multiplexes and Sunday being a family day, the footfall was seen rising in the metros.
On Saturday, the movie saw a jump of over 30% movie goers, most of whom were niche Disney audience. Jagga Jasoos has garnered mixed reviews from the critics and movie buffs and has qualified to be a pure entertainer. According to trade analyst Taran Adarsh, the film managed to mint over Rs 33 crore in its opening weekend.
He also added that weekdays are crucial for the film as high costs and a mixed reaction from the audience can prove to be deterrents.
Jagga Jasoos fetched a stumpy 8.25 crores figure on its opening day and moved up the revenue on day 2 with a collection of over 11 crores pulling around a total of 19.25 crores till
The weekend saw an increased footfall of around 15% in the multiplexes and hence the numbers on Sunday were expected to be even better than the previous days.
The film, directed by Anurag Basu, stars Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif in lead roles and is helmed on a budget of over Rs 110 crore. The delay in its release further aggravated the monetary aspect. But the makers have been cautious in opting for a limited release across 1800 screens in urban hubs and metros across India. However, given the response so far, it is difficult for the movie’s box office collections to even make-up for its budget.
