Tamasha Box Office: Will it trend like Barfi? We doubt

Box-Office woes for Ranbir Kapoor continue as Tamasha opened to poor numbers. Though the film does not have a universal appeal, the trailer and songs suggested a different story and the film was expected to open with a bang at the Box-Office, considering the fact that the film marked the return of Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone after Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani.

The film has raked in around Rs 10.87 crore on Day One, which is surely disappointing as the numbers are similar to Ranveer Singh's Dil Dhadakne Do (10.53). While the target audience of both the films is rather similar, Ranbir and Deepika's presence was expected to boost the film.

Majority of the collections have come in from the metros as the film failed to open at mass centres like Central Provinces, Central India, Rajasthan and East Punjab. To emerge as a moderate success, the film needs to witness a huge jump in collections today (28/11/2015) and tomorrow (29/11/2015).

Like Barfi, UTV restrained from giving a wide release to the film. However, it's hard to read the trends as the word of mouth is quite mixed. The film's budget is on the higher side (around Rs 80 crore including Print and Publicity) and the Day One figures have pretty much sealed the fate of the film at the Box-Office. However we would love to be surprised.
