‘Kapoor & Sons’ collects 6.85 cr on the opening day

‘Kapoor & Sons’ released on Friday opened with mixed reviews. The film earned Rs 6.85 crore on the opening day at the box office.

Directed by Shakun Batra and produced by Karan Johar, 'Kapoor & Sons' is a story of two brothers from a rather dysfunctional family. They both befriend the same girl, and things get a little messy when jealousy creeps in. The film plays out over a weekend vacation the family takes together.

‘Kapoor & Sons’ despite having prominent faces could only registered an opening day occupancy of 15-20%. Night shows registered as much as 35%-50% occupancy. It was expected that the film would open big at the box-office since there were no big releases for the past couple of weeks but audience did not show much interest on it. The film is expected to perform well in big cities, multiplexes than single theatres.

The film is likely to perform well in states like Delhi, Uttar Pradesh, Haryana, Rajasthan considering the highest number of screens.

The performance of Alia, Fawad and Sidharth was appreciated by the audience. As expected the film could not perform well in the opening day but with Holi round the corner, ‘Kapoor & Sons’ is expected to gown in coming days.
