As predicted, Section 375 had a slow start at the Box Office with only Rs.1.45 crores coming in during its opening weekend. Not surprisingly, there weren’t many expectations for it to earn much more than this since from the beginning it was meant to be a word of mouth affair – without even having crucial reviews or significant audience support.
However, while both its lead actors are credible they need critical acclaim and public attention to generate enough foot traffic inside movie theaters too; especially because most people would rather watch something lighthearted instead of watching something that is geared towards adults – which means these movies won’t do well outside major metropolitan areas like Mumbai or Delhi either.
The film has been receiving good to very good reviews, which will increase its visibility and make it an upcoming success. Moreover, people who have watched the film also seem to like it. It’s no Bollywood commercial movie or a heavy dramatic thriller; instead, it is more influenced by Hollywood cinema (hence) containing scenes from English TV shows like Boston Legal, Suits and The Good Wife – making it appropriate for those liking this type of legal drama series.
Nonetheless, given its promising beginnings so far – which include critical acclaim and favourable reviews – the film looks set to grow by 50%-75%. Given these figures however, if Section 375 can double this success rate within a week or two then it would be able to thrive even further in an already crowded market place. This will prove doubly challenging however when we take into account films like Dream Girl and Chhichhore – both slated for release soon after Section 375 – which will pose serious competition.
