Jagga Jasoos 1st Weekend Box Office Collection is 33.17 crore. The First Weekend Collections are Decent but the business trend is average at the box office.
Jagga Jasoos had an average Friday, a good Saturday followed by another average day in Sunday in its first weekend. While the Saturday growth was quite positive, Sunday growth on the other hand makes it quite clear that the film isn’t another Barfi at the box office. In hindsight, Saturday growth now looks more due to the fact that target audience of the film came in on Saturday at the high end multiplexes and that is where the major growth was.
Jagga Jasoos will find it difficult to succeed at the box office until and unless Monday numbers are may be 20-25 % lower than Friday which will give an indication that the occupancy is quite good but the chances of it are extremely slim because of two reasons : 1) The Target audience is already exhausted in the weekend. Difficult to attract beyond target group 2) The Weekend trend makes it clear that the word of mouth is mixed so difficult to prolong the run with that kind of word of mouth.
Tamasha starring Ranbir Kapoor which released couple of years back did around 15-20 % more business than Jagga Jasoos in its first weekend although it was slightly less budgeted film than Jagga Jasoos. The biggest task of Jagga Jasoos would be to come anywhere close to Tamasha’s lifetime numbers (69-70 crores) as it will be a face saving total for the film but that will completely depend on performance in the weekdays.
