It sounds like the advance bookings for the movie “Gadar 2” featuring Sunny Deol and Ameesha Patel have been quite successful. According to trade analysts like Taran Adarsh and Sumit Kadel, the advance bookings for the movie started at the beginning of the week and have garnered a positive response.
Taran Adarsh reported that a total of 1,05,300 tickets have been sold in the national series. He also provided a breakdown of the advance booking status for the movie at various national chains:
– PVR: 45,200 tickets sold
– Inox: 36,100 tickets sold
– Cinepolis: 24,000 tickets sold
This adds up to the total of 1,05,300 tickets that were sold for the first day of the movie’s release.
Sumit Kadel, another trade analyst, mentioned that the advance bookings for “Gadar 2” on B & C tier single screens have been even bigger than the advance bookings for the movie “Pathan.” He also noted that such impressive advance bookings for single screens haven’t been seen in many years, indicating the strong anticipation and interest surrounding the movie.
Overall, it seems that “Gadar 2” has generated significant buzz and excitement among the audience, as reflected by the robust advance bookings and positive comparisons to other movies in terms of ticket sales.
As of last Sunday, the movie “Gadar 2” managed to sell around 45,000 tickets for its opening day across the three national chains. The film is aiming to conclude its final advance booking phase with over 200,000 ticket sales by Thursday night.
The anticipation for the long-awaited sequel, “Gadar 2,” is high, primarily because it brings together Sunny Deol and Ameesha Patel after a gap of 22 years. Fans are excited about the reunion and are already predicting the movie to be a blockbuster, following in the footsteps of its successful predecessor. However, the film is not without competition, as it is up against Akshay Kumar’s “Oh My God 2,” which is set to release on August 11.
In an interview with ETimes, Sunny Deol shared his thoughts on comparisons between films. He expressed his confusion about why people tend to compare movies. He highlighted how the original “Gadar” faced skepticism initially, with people considering it to be a typical masala film with old-style songs. In contrast, movies like “Lagaan” were being regarded as classics. Sunny Deol emphasized that critics and industry insiders initially criticized “Gadar,” but it ultimately became a beloved people’s film that received immense love from the audience.
Sunny Deol’s perspective underscores the unpredictability of audience preferences and the fact that a film’s true impact can often be very different from initial perceptions or expert opinions.
