3 Bahadur 2 has taken exceedingly well start on Day One at domestic market.. Film is a sequel of mega blockbuster 3 Bahadur which had seen very solid long run. 3 Bahadur 2 like it’s prequel has opened best in Islamabad where occupancies are closed to packed at many places.. In Karachi also things are over 50% which is a very good result.
Film is quite slow in Lahore as Lahore continue to be badly effected by ban on Hindi films. Despite footfalls being down badly in last couple of months 3 Bahadur 2 has taken everyone by surprise by registering over 50% average occupancy at All Pakistan level with multiplexes scoring close to 75% average..
Film is the only good opener since the ban of Hindi films and it has achieved it despite being an animated film! Film’s numbers won’t be big but it’s alright as animated films have very less target audience and it will show some heavy growth over the Weekend as families will come out in numbers and there is massive space of growth in Lahore..
Comparing to prequel film is looking to add 30-35lacs approx on Day One and previous part had collected 30lacs approx! 3 Bahadur released opposite Tanu Weds Manu Returns but sequel has released Opposite latest Star Wars film and is looking beat it easily on day one which is a fantastic result for an animated film. 3 Bahadur was one of the best trended films ever in the history and it seems the appreciation it got is helping the sequel, especially in Islamabad/Rawalpindi. Film is beating the prequel’s numbers despite cinemas going through tough phase of huge loss of footfalls!
