Last year it looked like Cinemas Of Pakistan have capacity in region of 3.5-3.75cr approx when Jawani Phir Nahi Ani raked in 2.7cr approx on day three of it’s released but this year cinemas recorded around 4.75cr approx on second day of Eid. Opening of new screens like Weplex, Universal Cinemas, Xinhua Mall, Shaheen, Cinepanx Murree and Gujrat.. Addition of these screens plus each screen opening very early and then closing late late night ensured record number of shows and increased capacity to around 5cr approx! This took 5 day Weekend capacity in region of 23.5-24cr approx and Cinema saw Eid extended Weekend of around 21.95cr approx. Daily average is 4.39cr approx which was something not even imagined a few months back.
Sultan led with mind boggling response.. Got record release magnitude and to ensure complete jam packed for 5 days at such big release count was a outstanding job done by the film.. Second came The Legend Of Tarzan which did make some impressions at leading plexes but got very minimal shows outside plexes due to Sultan and Sawal 700 Crore Dollars Ka. Local release Sawal 700 Crore Dollars Ka was completely out shadowed by Sultan which had second biggest numbers of shows and collected mere 1.2cr.. Animated releases had shows at leading plexes only and both Finding Dory and Ice Age 5 saw many packed houses but Secret Life Of Pets was low..
Coming towards ticket sales, as per rough estimates over 6.31lac tickets were sold in the span of 5 days which is more than lifetime of all films released in Pakistan except few.. Below is 5 days extended Weekend business of all Eid releases with numbers of tickets sold in brackets.
Sultan.. 17.7cr (5.4lacs)
The legend Of Tarzan*.. 1.35cr (28k)
Sawal 700 Crore Dollars Ka.. 1.2cr (30k)
