Nikamma opened on expected lines as 51 lakhs came inside. These numbers are low, but then on expected lines as pre-pandemic it would have started in 2-3 crores range and collections have now dropped to an average of 25% in post-pandemic for most releases, as has been the trend over the past 6-8 months. Hence, 51 lakhs is pretty much a par score.

That said, it’s not like the cost of making has dropped to 25%, meaning theatrical stuff still matters. Of course, OTT has come to the rescue for most films, as the presale of the rights there has resulted in a good upfront cost. Plus, there’s always satellite and music. Plus, Nikamma isn’t overly expensive either, and if the collections increase over the weekend, there could well be some sort of theater business.

The protagonists of Abhimanyu Dasani, Shirley Setia and Shilpa Shetty are mainly for the single screens and the mass centers so there is hope that the footsteps here will get better especially today and better. However, the jump should be big and ideally the collections should pass 1 crore brand today. If that turns out to be the case, Nikamma could well enjoy an open week to herself as there is no other new Hindi release for competition.

Note: All collections according to production and distribution sources
