Cocktail will be looking for a strong start at multiplexes as the music has worked in major cities and promos also have appreciattion amongst the big city audience. The single screen opening will be dull as the better single screens like Liberty and Delite in Delhi had a very muted response when the advance opened.
Basically for films like Cocktail its all about multiplexes collecting in very big numbers so despite dull single screen numbers the overall collection looks healthy. The biggest opening day number for such a film till date is just under 10 crore nett for Rockstar released last year.
Cocktail is likely to put very good numbers at premium multiplexes in centres like Gurgaon and Bangalore and should beat the opening numbers of films like Rowdy Rathore and Bol Bachchan in these places but the key heartland belts will be a problem and with a name like Cocktail, the prospects in the heartland are curtailed further.
