Shamitabh First Week Collection : Shamitabh has a poor opening Week at Box Office.
Amitabh Bachchan and Dhanush starrer Shamitabh was released last Friday across the country. Despite being the only big release of last week, the movie has a poor opening week at domestic Box Office.
The movie performed well in southern areas thanks to the popularity or R. Balki and Dhanush in these regions. The reports hasn’t been good from most parts of North India. The response has been pathetic from single screens and mass centers in North India. The movie collected around 1.5 crores on most of the weekdays which is poor considering that Amitabh Bachchan and R. Balki has delivered some of the finest films in past. The movie now stands with a total domestic Box Office collection of 18.8 crores at the end of opening week.

The movie received good reviews from public as well as critics but it didn’t converted into Box Office numbers. Shamitabh found it difficult to survive at Box Office specially on weekdays. The biggest problem with the movie is that it’s a typical masala entertainer. Secondly, the promotions and publicity hasn’t been good which has certainly affected the opening of the movie.
Budget and Economics
Made on a budget of around 40 crores the movie has already been sold to Eros for 45 crores. Shamitabh should make more than 45 crores in order to be a safe bet for Eros. Well, looking at Shamitabh first week collection it would be a mammoth task for it to make even 30 crores at Box Office. As far as we predict, the movie would add to the list of flops in 2015.
