Padman Box Office Collection paddles its way to sucess
Padman Box Office Collection: Paddles its way to success

Padman Movie Box Office Collection Day 1 Prediction: The most awaited social drama of the year Padman is preparing to rake around 13 – 14 core on its opening day. With just 2000-2500 screens the number seems great.  The offbeat topic is grabbing these numbers only due to the team’s innovative promotional strategies. And yes the #padmanchallenge has done well in giving a boost to movie’s promotion among audience as it has been promoted by almost every popular face of bollywood.

Keeping in mind Akshay’s track record, the film will surely gear up. It might break many previous records of the actor’s film, looking at Buzz. The extent to which Bollywood’s glitterati supported the topic by posting their picture with a Pad in their hand. In fact quite a lot of commoners also did the same including the male population.

The Akshay Kumar, Radhika Apte and Sonam Kapoor have been receiving great reviews from everyone. The film was pushed from its Republic day release to Valentines weekend on 9th Feb due to Sanjay Leela’s Padmaavat. But the buzz hasn’t lightened up, giving the film a good head start. Also, the solo release on a cheerful weekend present the collection slight edge.

Advance booking trends

According to team of Real Bollywood the Advance Booking slots looks quite good.

The Negative

A Taboo Topic: The film is based on social entrepreneur Arunachalam Muruganantham, who developed affordable sanitary pads for women. The Story revolves around a topic that is considered a Taboo in many parts of the country. Will it attract audiences to the theatre???

Observing the business of Akshay’s latest “Toilet: Ek Prem Katha,” that was also a Social message oriented film. Its Box office collection of Rs 134.22 crore, proves that content is the king.

Acknowledging the risk of such film Akshay Kumar tells he took the risk to bring a change,

“Yes I am very sure and I pray for it and I am confident also that there will be a lot of changes. Let me share an instance with you now when I wake up these days and check social media, I see men have started talking about sanitary pads, menstrual hygiene…When have you seen men discussing menstrual hygiene? A day will come when this will change and it’s high time it changes”

Yes there is a risk there, but R.Balki sensibilities and Kumar’s humor can cross the hurdle easily. Unfortunately not on the first day, the film will take its time to gear up on box office.

Padmaavat:  Running untouchable for 2 weeks it still poses threat to Padman. It still captures good amount of screens. Secondly, it due to release in the banned states, which might bring it to Padman’s direct competition.
