Two big films released today but boxoffice is going to be completely dependent on Eid days as both will be having low numbers today due to Pre Eid effect..
Talking of advance over the Eid, it is lead well by Na Maloom Afraad 2.. Advance sales are always slow in Punjab so real compariosn can be made in Karachi.. Even though Na Maloom Afraad 2 had more shows but still it was expected that number of tickets sold will almost similar. With lesser number of shows Punjab Nahi Jaungi should have seen more hustle at advance sales but things are completely different from expectations.. Advance ticket sales are almost three times more for Na Maloom Afraad 2 compared to Punjab Nahi Jaungi.. Film’s advance sales are more than 50lacs in Cinepax, Atrium and Nueplex combined till Monday.. Whereas Punjab Nahi Jaungi is not even half. At place like Atrium where capacity of Punjab Nahi Jaungi was more yet Na Maloom Afraad 2 has better advance..
It looks set that over the Eid Weekend Na Maloom Afraad 2 will see some good lead over Punjab Nahi Jaungi in Karachi and it will all melt down to Punjab where Punjab Nahi Jaungi will have to cover lots of ground. In Punjab showtimes are almost similar for both films even though advance in Punjab is slow but its almost neck to neck at some places and little more for Na Naloom Afraad 2 at few places..
Overall Advance sales are decnet for Na Maloom Afraad 2 over the period but they are quite low for Punjab Nahi Jaungi.. Eid footfalls will take things high for both releases from tomorrow but it seems right now that Na Maloom Afraad 2 will lead well over the Eid Weekend..
