In terms of the net and gross collections, the movie has crossed the mark of RRR and Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2. This became possible due to the blockbuster pricing for Brahmastra advance booking set by the leading multiplexes of the country.
According to experts, Brahmastra news is trending everywhere as it is predicted that the movie will zoom past the figure of 83 (1.17 lakh tickets) by Tuesday noon. With this advancement, this movie will record the most significant advance booking in the pandemic times for an outright Hindi film.
After crossing the figure of 83, Brahmastra will start its journey to compete with pre-pandemic fishes like Mission Mangal (2.71 lakh tickets), Tiger Zinda Hai (2.76 lakh tickets), Sanju (2.94 lakh tickets), Dangal (3.05 lakh tickets), and Sultan (3.10 lakh tickets).
Even if #BoycottBrahmastra is trending on social media platforms, the fan’s love for Brahmastra is expected to set a new benchmark for the film in the post-pandemic era, and the merit of the film’s larger-than-life content will decide its further progress.
Booking For The First Weekend
Speaking about the booking for the opening weekend, Brahmastra has sold approximately 2 lakh tickets in the 3 national chains. Well, the highlighted figures are only phenomenal ones. If we compare apples to apples, the response to the advance is much better than Ranbir’s Sanju. The Rajkumar Hirani directorial had sold 1 lakh tickets in the 3 national chains by Wednesday, whereas Brahmastra opening day booking touched the mark by Monday evening itself.
We can better narrate through the figures, which state that Sanju touched the 1,08,000 mark by Wednesday noon. In comparison, figures for Brahmastra had reached 92,000 by Monday evening.
According to sources, the film will release on around 5,000 screens in India on Friday. Therefore, it has enough potential to grow even after a bumper start. Well, the ultimate success of any film lies with the quality of the content it delivers. The same goes true for Brahmastra as well; the first premier will eventually decide Brahmastra hit or flop at the box office.
