Vidya Balan’s Kahaani 2 – Durga Rani Singh off to a decent start, registers 20 per cent occupancy

Vidya Balan‘s Kahaani 2 – Durga Rani Singh released today and from what we hear, it has gotten off to a decent start. The movie was one of the most anticipated sequels of the year and looks like it has loved up to everybody’s expectations. We hear that Kahaani 2 – Durga Rani Singh has started off with an occupancy of 15-20 per cent across India, nearly 40-50 per cent in Kolkata. This is a very decent number for the morning shows, considering today is a working day. But the best part is that, many evening shows have been booked already, so expect the film to see a growth in occupancy by the evening.

Looking at this trend, we guess the film can open anywhere in the range of Rs 7-9 crore. Our trade expert – Amul Vikas Mohan had also predicted the same earlier. He had said, “I expect Kahaani 2 – Durga Rani Singh to open decently. It can collect in the range of Rs 6-8 crore on day one, which is really good. The lifetime depends on the content of the film.” ALSO READ – Will Shah Rukh Khan-Alia Bhatt’s Dear Zindagi AFFECT Vidya Balan’s Kahaani 2 – Durga Rani Singh?

Kahaani 2 – Durga Rani Singh is the sequel to the 2012 hit thriller, Kahaani. The latter had earned a huge profit after people were intrigued by the plot of the film and a positive word of mouth publicity propelled the movie. Kahaani 2 – Durga Rani Singh is bigger and much more intense than the first part. The performances are fabulous too. Our reviewer revealed in the movie’s review, “Director Sujoy Ghosh creates a world similar to the one we saw in underwhelming Te3n, a few months ago. Vidya Balan is as usual top notch in her portrayal of a vulnerable as well as destructive mother. Watch out for the pre-climax scene in an abandoned house. That particular scene has a spine chilling performance by Balan. She will freak you out. Arjun Rampal’s nuanced and natural portrayal of a cop will stay with you even after the movie ends.” So while the morning shows have started off decently, expect the film to jump as people will rave about the film and it’s plot once again. A good word of mouth publicity will help this movie too.

And Kahaani 2 – Durga Rani Singh might easily go ahead to make Rs 27 crore by the end of the first weekend. As Amul explained earlier, “From Rs 8 crore on day one, Kahaani 2 can collect anywhere in between Rs 9-9.50 crore on day 2 and Rs 10 crore on day 3. So you are looking at just a little under Rs 30 crore over the first weekend, which is a great number for such a film..” ALSO READ – Kahaani 2 – Durga Rani Singh movie review: Vidya Balan is a scene stealer while Arjun Rampal’s performance stays with you
