Kalki Movie Release: Prabhas and Deepika Padukone’s Epic Set for a Strong Box Office Opening
With its Hindi dubbed version releasing on 3,250 screens, the highly anticipated film Kalki, led by Prabhas and Deepika Padukone, is poised to make a significant impact at the box office, aiming for an opening around the Rs 20 crore mark. Here’s an in-depth look at what to expect from this monumental release.
Kalki: The Grand Unveiling
Directed by Nag Ashwin and featuring an ensemble cast including Amitabh Bachchan, Kamal Haasan, Prabhas, and Deepika Padukone, Kalki is set to premiere on Thursday, June 27, 2024. This futuristic saga, inspired by the Mahabharata, has already garnered immense hype nationwide. Ticket sales began over the weekend, signaling strong anticipation for the film.
Box Office Projections
The Central Board of Film Certification has rated Kalki U/A, with a runtime of 3 hours and 56 seconds. Anil Thadani’s AA Films is distributing the film in North India, aiming for a massive release on 3,500 screens, including 3,250 for the Hindi dubbed version.
Advance bookings for the Hindi version opened on Sunday night, and the response has exceeded expectations, especially in major national chains. By Monday at 7 PM, Kalki had sold 24,000 tickets across PVRInox and Cinepolis, and it is projected to close the 24-hour cycle with pre-sales of 27,000 tickets.
High Demand and Advance Bookings
Kalki is targeting an advance sale of 1 lakh tickets in national chains, a feat that seemed unlikely just a week ago. The film’s unconventional non-holiday Thursday release has made its advance sales performance even more impressive. Non-national chains are also reporting strong pre-sales, outperforming other major releases like Fighter, Shaitaan, and Salaar.
Positive Trends and Early Box Office Numbers
The film’s early momentum suggests a strong box office opening in the Hindi market, with a potential Rs 20 crore on the first day. Some regional theatres, such as Sanjay Cineplex in Bihar, sold over 200 tickets in less than eight hours, indicating widespread demand.
However, the release coincides with the World Cup Semi Final of India, which could impact evening and night show numbers. Despite this, with positive word-of-mouth, Kalki could push closer to the Rs 25 crore mark.
Weekend and Long-Term Prospects
The early days of release are crucial, and Kalki aims to maintain its momentum through Tuesday and Wednesday. An opening around Rs 20 crore would be a strong start for Kalki in the Hindi market, with the added benefit of an upcoming weekend and a two-week open run at the box office.
Star Power and Audience Appeal
The film’s advance bookings highlight Prabhas’ status as a major crowd-puller in the Hindi market, consistently drawing audiences post-Bahubali, with the exception of Radhe Shyam. The presence of legendary actors like Amitabh Bachchan and Deepika Padukone is also boosting collections and generating interest in North India.
Southern Market Performance
In South Indian markets, Kalki’s advance bookings have also opened with strong demand, driven by Prabhas’ popularity and the film’s stellar cast. This support from both Northern and Southern markets indicates a historic global opening for Kalki.
Kalki’s release is one of the most awaited events in Indian cinema this year. With positive early signs and a star-studded cast, the film is set to make a significant impact at the box office. Stay tuned to Pinkvilla for more updates on Kalki’s box office journey and audience reception.
