It was faulty to underestimate the cinematic preferences of audiences and presume that Bombay Talkies wont fare well. The film which opened to a poor opening on Friday launched itself well on Saturday. With the weekend beginning, the film showed promising growth by doubling the occupancy since Friday. The multiplexes mainly recorded a substantial performances in the later shows of Saturday at all main urban centers. As per early estimates, the movie collected an approx of 2.50 crores at the domestic box office. However, the accurate figures will soon be updated.
Bombay Talkies though attempting to commemorate a very significant year of Indian cinema, the film will largely be lauded for its distinctly wonderful films. Directors Karan Johar, Dibakar Banerjee, Zoya Akhtar and Anurag Kashyap deserve credit for tailoring their powerful stories in the small time frame. The film has a long way to go, but for the beginning, the movie has finally picked up to a start it truly deserves.
