Having received raving reviews by most of the critics Life of Pi kicked off on a rather somber note with paid previews on Thursday. The movie made about 3.50 Crores between the paid previews on Thursday and full run on Friday.
With two major Biggies for competition, i.e. Jab Tak Hai Jaan and Son of Sardaar, this was the expected fate of Life of Pi. However, one has to keep in mind that the movie is not a regular masala flick for the masses. It is a multiplex film and thus will only do well in Metros and other urban areas.
