Eid ul Azha is easily the biggest ocassiom of the year at boxoffice. First day of Eid ul Azha is hit by Eid festivities but the second day of Eid ul Azha yields biggest results of the year every year. Last year three films clashed at the boxoffice on Eid ul Azha and the stakes were very high in terms of cast and brands. Jawani Phir Nahi Ani 2 had led the way whereas Parwaaz Hai Junoon had raked in massive numbers too.
Stakes are higher this year as the budgets of Parey Hut Love and Superstar are very high. This Eid will see a very close competition at the boxoffice in the beginning. Starting with the number of shows it is already head to head between Mahira Khan starrer Superstar and Sheheryar Munawar starrer Parey Hut Love. Heer Maan Ja has managed to get good amount of shows too.
The most important thing will be how big numbers the three films will register. Opening day will be slow owing to Eid festivities but day two will be huge and it will be down to how big the three films will get on second day. Number of shows indicate that PKR 30 million in a single day for any film will be an uphil task this Eid. At the same time rains in Karachi will be crucial too.
Start today on the first day of Eid is very slow so far but this happens every year and the pick starts coming in from evening onward. It will be down to how much pick comes today in the evening and how big tomorrow gets. Then there is a weekend after three days of Eid. It will be crucial how the weekend holds.
