Jai Ha had a good opening with single screensdoing very well ranging from 80-100% while multiplexes opened in the 50% range but while the opening is good the expectations were of a much better opening. The business at multiplexes across North India was disappointing as some were even less than 50%.

 

Mumbai circuit has opened better than North India with Ahmedabad recording 90% collections and Pune also around 80-90% but North looks set to be below expectations as Delhi NCR and East Punjab had an average start.

 

Overall the opening is good but not huge. The first day number should be good but probably not what a Salman Khan starrer should be doing today. It has no chance of reaching Ek Tha Tiger levels and the question is can it go over 20 crore nett or not. A lot depends how multiplexes fare through the day as business in single screens in most parts is very good.
