The Nun has scored at the box office with collections of 7.75 crore nett apprx on day one. This is easily the highest number for a Hollywood horror film and the second highest number ever in India for a horror film after Raaz 3. This franchise has good brand value in India and all the films have returned good numbers. The opening day numbers of this franchise are as follows.



The Conjuring (2013) - 60,00,000


The Conjuring 2 (2016) - 5,36,00,000


Annabelle Creation (2017) - 4,61,00,000


The Nun (2018) - 7,75,00,000 apprx



The Nun has easily opened the best in the franchise but it was The Conjuring 2 which had emerged a blockbuster film a few years back with business of over 62 crore nett. The Conjuring had opened to just 60 lakhs nett but eventually went to 17.50 crore nett as it sustained very strongly over weeks.




The new Hindi releases Gali Guleiyan, Laila Majnu and Paltan had very low collections with Paltan being the best of the lot.



Paltan is directed by J.P Dutta who has epic films behind him like Ghulami, Border and others but obviously the same magic is not there anymore. Paltan has grossed around 1.15-1.25 crore nett on day one. This collection is in the same range as the MEGA BLOCKBUSTER Border released way back in 1997 which grossed 1.12 crore nett. Border smashed all initial records at the box office but Paltan will be doing nothing at the box office.



Laila Majnu grossed a very poor 30 lakhs nett and is going nowhere. The audience has an image of Laila Majnu in their mind and the trailer of this film hardly matched the image. There was a film of the same name released in 1976 which was a BLOCKBUSTER and the lifetime business of this Laila Majnu will remain well short of the 1976 film and we dont mean adjusted collections but non adjusted figures.



Gala Guleiyan was not fit for a theatrical release so should not have been released but was and the collections will hardly be 5 lakhs nett.
