Tiger 3's advance booking

The advance booking for Tiger 3, also starring Emraan Hashmi, opened on 5 November.

According to Sanjeev Kumar Bijli, Executive Director of PVR INOX Ltd, the action-dram film Tiger 3 is expected to earn close to 40 crore on the first day of its release on Diwali.

The OVR INOX chain said it has sold about 1.80 lakh tickets of “Tiger 3" for the first weekend, which is from Sunday to Thursday. More than one lakh tickets have been sold for day one in over 1000 screens of PVR INOX across the country, he said.

Trade analyst Atul Mohan said "Tiger 3" has shown "decent" advance sales and may register an opening anywhere between 35 to 40 crore.

Considering the fact that the film is releasing on main festival day, Mohan said "Not many people will go to theatres to watch it. However, if the buzz around the movie is good then it will do exceedingly well from Monday onwards. The film might open at 35-40 crore and it may continue to do more business as it's a holiday period," he added.

Other Diwali releases

According to Chennai-based trade analyst Ramesh Bala, south Indian audience is enthusiastic about regional Diwali releases such as “Japan" (Tamil), featuring actor Karthi, director Karthik Subbaraj’s “Jigarthanda Double X" (Tamil), “Raid" with Vikram Prabhu and Sri Divya, actor Dileep-starrer “Bandra" (Malayalam), and Rakshit Shetty’s “Sapta Saagaradaache Ello – Side B" (Kannada).

Bala said that the buzz around “Tiger" is not that great in southern India because the movie is not set in the region.

The trade analyst believes that while "Tiger 3" could perform well in places like Bangalore, Hyderabad, and Chennai, positive word-of-mouth is necessary for the movie to garner support all over South India.
