Key Highlight

  • The Great Indian Family takes a meagre opening of Rs 1 crore on the opening day.
  • The Great Indian Family relies heavily on word of mouth to sail through.
  • The Great Indian Family now plays at a theatre near you.

Vicky Kaushal and Manushi Chhillar starrer The Great Indian Family, directed by director Vijay Krishna Acharya, took an insanely low opening of Rs 1 crore nett at the Indian box office on the opening day. The numbers were always expected to be on the lower end of the spectrum due to lacklustre promotions and little awareness but what it has attained is simply a shocker and indicates outright rejection, atleast on the opening front. With an opening of this sort, The Great Indian Family won't just need exponential weekend growth but also a Monday number that supersedes the day 1 numbers by a margin. The initial reception for the film is positive and it is to be seen if that takes the film anywhere.


The Great Indian Family Has An Astonishingly Low Opening Day Of Rs 1 Crore In India

The Great Indian Family had Vicky Kaushal return to theatres after the super success of Zara Hatke Zara Bachke, which despite having less theatrical mileage to begin with, exceeded all box office expectations and emerged a super-hit venture. While Zara Hatke Zara Bachke managed to atleast register a half-decent opening, The Great Indian Family has clearly not. The film was not even the first choice for Indian cinegoers with Jawan continuing to remain as the most preferred movie choice for its third consecutive Friday, with collections almost seven times as much as the new Vicky Kaushal starrer. A realistic target for The Great Indian Family would be to have a 6x opening day multiplier for the weekend and a 12x multiplier for the week, given its release size, which gives ample room to grow.
