Kites Box Office thread

Kites has taken a mind boggling opening all over India this morning. The film has opened to full houses at most centres across India. Both multiplexes and single screens show a huge turnout.

But the initial reports coming in are not too encouraging especially from outside metroes. Kites has a lot of English of Spanish dialogue and this is not going down well. The distributors have supplied Hindi subtitles for prints going to Hindi speaking dominated centres but it is not the same as having actual dialogues in Hindi.

The collections on Friday will be awesome and it will be remained to be seen where the film goes from here. Saturday will tell how the reports are affecting collections but it may be possible that due to heavy advance Saturday could be strong. Monday is likely to be tough for the film especially outside metroes. On the other hand if the film sustains over the weekend it will mean bumper collections and lifetime Indian theatrical business will be good on strength of opening. It will be an interesting week at the box office with Kites.


Please post all the BO pieces in this thread.
