Suraj Pe Mangal Bhari opened yesterday (Sunday) to a limited response but it was not that there was no audience. Its the first release after more than 8 months so in reality the first objective is some people do come to the theatres (Is Love Enough - Sir released on Friday which makes that the first release but that film would hardly get any footfalls in a normal scenario).The hope was a 3 crore nett type of number which the film would have got roughly if it had a normal non holiday release pre covid19. Its basically the big holiday factor compensating the covid19 factor but that was too much to ask for at this present time.



The film got a huge release in the metros with multiplexes going to 14 and 16 shows but many cinemas still remain shut due to rental issues over the non opening in the covid19 period. The audience count in the shows screened were in the 20-25 range in the afternoon and evenings on average so people have come but the industry had hoped for more to give confidence for more releases to come over the next month or so.



The North India numbers (especially NCR) are a struggle considering the strong release in these parts and because this is where the film should have outperformed due and it could be that covid19 infections are on the rise in Delhi which makes the public more wary to come out. 



Suraj Pe Mangal Bhari is not exactly that big film to get the audience out but it could be worse that something like the Diwali week OTT releases like Chhalaang and Ludo came. The public reports are average for the film but its going to the main film in cinemas for sometime to come so it remains to be seen what happens.



The collections and territory numbers will be given over the next few days as its slow reporting and not like the normal DCRs which were there 7-8 months back.
