Jug Jugg Jeeyo Box Office Preview: Varun Dhawan, Kiara Advani starrer runtime, screen count & opening day

Varun Dhawan returns to the big screen after 2 and a half years while Kiara Advani is back after the success of Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 with Raj Mehta directed Jug Jugg Jeeyo. The duo is joined by Anil Kapoor, Neetu Kapoor, Maniesh Paul and Prajakta Koli in this family entertainer that revolves around the lives of two couples. The film was approved by the CBFC with no cuts and received a U/A certificate with an approved running time of 2 hours 28 minutes (148 minutes).

With the runtime under control, the creators have managed to get good presentations in the multiplexes. The pre-booking started already on Saturday, because all the conditions for release were in place much in advance. Tuesday. Ticket sales started to pick up momentum from Wednesday night and with one day left before release, the film is expected to close with total presale in the range of 57,000 to 63,000 at the three national chains. This would be a reasonable result, a base for Friday’s walk-in audiences, especially in times when most multiplex-oriented movies don’t even get an initial.

As of Thursday afternoon, the bookings in the three chains are close to 37,0000. The team has continued with popular price plates in most multiplexes, but requires the dynamic base, especially in the high-end multiplexes. The progress is in the same range as Gangubai Kathiawadi, but better than another June release, Samrat Prithviraj. We have seen in the past that the progress trend is not exactly reflected in one day trading. While 83′ has sold over 1.05 lakh tickets in the national chain, there was barely an audience for the film leading to a start in the range of just 11 crore. Samrart Prithviraj on the other hand had about 42,000 tickets from the national chains, but the start was much better than the advance (Rs 10.70 crore) if the walk-in crowd was high.

This kind of progress should lead to an opening in the range of Rs 8 to 10 crore, but as said before, it is always on the daytime audience that will decide where the film goes. The buzz in the industry is positive and if the audience reacts the same way, the film would definitely be a winner. Ultimately, it is always the audience that determines the fate of a film, although we have a strong feeling that the film’s target audience, especially urban families and urban youth, will appreciate its content. The best companies for the film come from the top 8 cities, with Delhi and Mumbai leading the way.

While anything above 8 crore will be a good start, a double-digit opening will put the film in a good position to grow over the weekend, if the critical rating matches the audience’s speech. In terms of screen count, Jug Jugg Jeeyo is seeing wide release on around 3000 screens, with around 8000 shows per day in India. (The number of screens and shows is subject to change as it changes by the hour). Stay tuned to Pinkvilla for detailed box office reporting on Jug Jugg Jeeyo.
