KGF Box Office Report

KGF Breaks Records on Day 1!

KGF Box Office Collection | Full Details

KGF released all across India on 21 December, and took a huge opening at the box office specially in Karnataka. The movie got an amazingly huge response from the audience, and ran to packed houses all across Karnataka. KGF was surrounded with huge hype in Karnataka and the box office collection on day 1 is the reflection of that fact. The film collected a record breaking ~12 cr on its first day at the Kannada Box Office. KGF also saw most number of shows on its first day, with single screens running 5 - 6 shows in a day, with shows starting as early as 4AM! Multiplexes ran 8 - 14 shows, with some running up to 25 shows! This was in spite of Shahrukh Khan starrer Zero and Dhanush starrer Maari 2 releasing simultaneously. Zero in comparison evoked only a lukewarm response in Karnataka.

The reports of KGF getting a stay order on its release from a lower court in Bangalore seems to have not deterred the people, but that could also be due to most of the shows being advanced booked and sold out before the news could reach them.

The box office collection of the Hindi version pales in comparison with the Kannada version. Well obviously, since Yash is a big star in Kannada, but he is a little known face to the Hindi audience. However, the response was still great for a dubbed Kannada film. The collections actually surpassed the expectations, as not many trade pundits believed in KGF to do well, especially when releasing with a Shahrukh Khan film. The Hindi version of KGF collected approximately around 2.5 cr at the box office on day one.

The Telugu version saw a better response compared to the Hindi one, and Tamil, Malayalam version as well.

KGF has got an overall good response on its opening day at the box office, and we have to wait to see if it can sustain in the coming days. The quality of the film and the word-of-mouth will play an important role. If the film manages to impress the masses, it will make huge fortunes at the box office in its first week, since the Christmas holidays extend the holiday weekend bringing more people to the cinemas. Growth in the box office collections in the coming days will indicate a positive word-of-mouth. KGF has got a mixed to positive reviews from the critics.
