Krriss 3 took a fantastic start as expected with collections around the 80% mark on average at multiplexes with heavy volume screenings. Many theatres recorded 100% occupancies. The rate at which it as opened suggests a mega number for the first day but it is not a national holiday and it is pre-diwali with many people busy with Diwali festivities.
When it is a non holiday the occupancies at multiplexes tend to be lower in the afternoon and early evening period for films which record strong starts in the morning while on holidays films go through this period with little falls. This happened with films like Dabangg 2 and Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani (other big initial takers on non holiday) and is bound to happen to Krrish 3 which will stop it going close to the Chennai Express or Ek Tha Tiger opening day numbers, both of which opened on national holidays. Here there is also the disadvantage of pre-diwali.
At single screens it’s a different story and should go through the day with 90-100% collections due to just 4 or 5 screenings per day.
