As we reported on Tuesday, Kantara is a special movie that does unimaginable things at the box office. It started slowly but the gradual growth is just outstanding at the box office.
Kantara enjoyed an excellent first week at the Indian box office, grossing nearly Rs. 25 crores or so. The majority of this came from Karnataka, where the film collected around Rs. 24.50 crores while the rest of India contributed another Rs. 40,000,000.
The film had an extraordinary trajectory at the box office, with the first week almost tripling the first weekend when even doubling the weekend would have been much better than the norm. Weekdays were helped by the Dusshera holiday, but even after the holiday ended on Wednesday, Thursday was still more than double the opening day and 30% higher than Saturday. The movie is set to take another leap in collections today on its second Friday and is certain to have a second weekend better than the first weekend, possibly even double that.
When you have this type of trend in your hands, the film can go anywhere. The film should comfortably hit Rs. 50 crore, most likely within the second week itself. The movie will stabilize somewhat to normal in the second days of the week and depending on how it holds up after that, it could reach Rs. 60-70 crores in Karnataka.
Kantara’s box office collections at the Indian box office are as follows:
Friday – 1.60 crore
Saturday – 3 crore
Sunday – 4.15 crore
Monday – 3.15 crores
Tuesday – 4 crore
Wednesday – 5.10 crore
Thursday – 3.90 crore
First week total – 24.90 crores
Friday – 2.80 crore
Grand total – 27.70 crores
