Bell Bottom has collected 2.50-2.75 crore nett apprx on day one and although this is a low number and far lower than than the industry thought it is pretty much on the expected lines due to the limited release and 50% occcupancy rule. It did look as it will comfortably top 3 crore nett at around 2pm but collections slowed in the late evening and night in Delhi NCR which was also expected but you always hope other areas can push to equal out this expected slowdown but it was not to be. The film could finish a little higher if West Bengal can get some better collections from single screens where it has the best single screen release compared to  any circuit. 



The importance of Delhi is huge as around 20% of the all India collections are coming from one city and that is not including the satellite towns of NCR. There are little plusses in Kolkata and Hyderabad in some properties also but they hardly matter in the overall scenario. The mass markets have restricted collections with CPCI Rajasthan, UP and Bihar having low numbers. Hindi films which reach so many states need the bulk of these to have the potential to collect and that can only happen when the flow of releases start and with Maharashtra closed this cannot happen. 



The film can still run well at this level and sustain but that depends on the audience response and if that is there then the film will continue to collect well for a few weeks due to the very limited audience initially. The weekend numbers will be better and with Chandigarh allowing night shows it could be more areas of Delhi city also allow night shows over the next few days.
