First day of ‘Kai Po Che’ at the box office

The regular film goers as well as the film critics have a lot of expectations from the film ‘Kai Po Che’. It is the second novel of Chetan Bhagat that got transformed to a movie. The first film adaptation of his novel ‘3 Iddiots’ went on to break all box office records and created a cult following. ‘Kai Po Che’ is based on his popular novel ‘The 3 mistakes of my life’. The special screening of the movie earned rave reviews for the film.

Director Abhishek Kapoor has deliberately casted lesser known faces for the lead roles of the film so that the main focus remains on the plot. The cast of ‘Kai Po Che’ consists of Amrita Puri, Raj Kumar Yadav,  Amit Sadh and Sushant Singh Rajput. Earlier Abhishek Kapoor has directed ‘Rock On’ which was a film on friendship and was well appreciated by the film buffs.

The film is produced by Ronnie Screwvala and UTV. It opened today at all the cinema halls across India (on 22nd Feb 2013). The excitement is palpable. The film is predicted to do well and has all the factors running in its favor. The team of ‘Kai Po Che’ is keeping their fingers crossed as the box office results are pouring in from different circles of India.

The promotional and marketing activities in the past couple of months had been hectic. UTV haven’t kept a stone unturned to make the people aware about the movie. The movie is doing well in the multiplexes but the single screens are dominated by the movie ‘Zila Ghaziabad’ which also got released today. However, ‘Zila Ghaziabad’ is a socio political action movie starring Sanjay Dutt, Arshad Warsi and Vivek Oberoi and others.

‘Kai Po Che’ is getting an occupancy rate of 35% to 45% in the opening show. But the numbers are predicted to increase on Saturday and Sunday as word of mouth is spreading excellent feedbacks for the film.

According to the estimates of the pundits, the film is going to collect almost rupess four crore on Friday. It will earn INR 5 crore and 6 crore on Saturday and Sunday respectively. All in all the movie will gross more than 15 crore on the opening week. It is doing well even amidst stiff competition from ‘Special 26’ and ‘Zila Ghaziabad’.

We wish all the best to a good movie, “Kai Po Che”.
