Abhishek Kapoor's Kai Po Che started well at the box office on its very first day. Trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted saying that the film has so far collected Rs. 4.5 crore on Friday. "It's an excellent start for a film that does not boast of star names", Adarsh said.
TARAN ADARSH SAYS
Kai Po Che fetched a flying start at multiplexes of major centres. The opening shows in Mumbai, Ahmedabad, Pune, Delhi-NCR, Gurgaon, Chandigarh, Kolkata, Indore, Bhopal, Jaipur and Bangalore ranged from good to very good, with the youth thronging the plexes from the morning shows itself. The fantastic pre-release promotion by UTV, coupled with the tremendous following of writer Chetan Bhagat amongst youth, ensured impressive footfalls at major centres. The response in Punjab and U.P. was not up to the mark. Released in 1,000 screens in India, the business is expected to grow manifold towards the evening/night shows.
On the other hand, Zila GHaziabad opened quite well across single screens of mass belt. Expectedly, the opening was weak at plexes, but the single screen audience, especially in U.P., gave the film a head start due to the action genre.
