This Weekend saw release of two new Hindi films i.e. Badhaai Ho and Namaste England. Badhai Ho has shows some good trending over the Weekend as film saw good gains on Saturday especially in Karachi and Lahore. Namaste England had known faces plus had some branding of Namaste London which resulted in more shows and also a better day one but film couldn’t show any growth over the Weekend.
Both films have registered almost similar numbers in the range of 1.3cr approx over the Weekend. Difference is this that Namaste England’s starting point was 45lacs whereas starting point of Badhaai Ho was 35lacs approx. Badhai Ho not only saw growth over the Weekend but film’s reports are also coming positive.

Film has increment in shows at some multiplexes for Weekdays and film will probably show some hold but it will be down to second Weekend. There is no major release coming Week and if film manages to hold coming Week then we are definitely going to see a good long run.
There was a new English release also i.e. First Man but start was slow. Film raked in 12lacs approx over the the Weekend. Film had limited number of shows and if we see by that perspective then numbers are respectable.
