Agneepath has had a huge fall in the region of 75-80% at the start of its third week. The collections are around 75 lakhs on its third Friday as against the 3.25 crore nett last Friday.
The same scenario happened with Don 2 and it is a repeat with Agneepath. Both films had cracks in collections in certain days over their first two weeks run but as long as there was no competition the films managed to hold but as soon a new major release came the collections went down heavily.
Its mainly due to the fact that most films are unable to hold good occupancies after the first seven days due to over saturated releases but exhibitors will keep them on unless there is an alternative.
The opening numbers are getting so high today for the big commercial films that the scenario is such that if films face major competition in week two then collections are likely to come down heavily unless all India word of mouth is like films like Three Idiots, Dabangg, Ready or Bodyguard.
