Beauty And The Beast topped the Hindi releases as it opened to around 15% occupancy. The Hindi releases were Aa Gaya Hero, Machine and Trapped. Beauty And The Beast has been released on 600 theaters but Machine has been released on double the theaters which could allow its first day collections to be higher than the Hollywood release though occupancy is less.
Machine has opened to around 10% which is better than the other two Hindi films. It has opened a little better in cities of UP, Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh but that hardly means anything.
Aa Gaya Hero is a Govinda film but looks dated and very poor production values which gives it little chance. Trapped is probably a rip off of some European film but here the cost is very low so that when no one really watches the film it does not really hurt like the Rangoon's and Rock On's. Its pretty much assured there will not be many people out there wanting to watch this cinema. An Aa Gaya Hero goes wrong in implementation which is past its sell by a date while a Trapped should not be implemented in the first place. Beauty And The Beast and this film have the same target audience but teh Hollywood film will come out on top.
Its likely that the collections of Badrinath Ki Dulhania on day eight can be more than Aa Gaya Hero, Machine Trapped put together and even possible that if you add Beauty And The Beast to the equation then it will still be ven more.
