Emotional outburst alli ondh erdu foul words use maadi eduvodhu sahaja. Aadhre idhara 10 pattu foul words, insults, personal level abuse naavu face maadidhivi from the other endTo those who are doubting the movie's BO performance and comparing it to flop movies of their (& other) heroes:
I have already given few Bangalore & Mysore theater updates. Clearly the movie is having Above Average to Decent to Good crowd in single screens & multiplexes. There are various YouTube videos of release day craze of jam packed crowd and celebrations at Triveni, Prasanna & Mysore theaters (unfortunately some hero's last movie didn't have such celebrations).
I have myself witnessed houseful board in Veerabhadreshwara and almost houseful crowd at Prasanna yesterday and today respectively. And yet those who comment that Prasanna is not fast filling in bms & hence all single screens are going poor, they should know to go near the theater to check whether it is full or not, instead of just looking at bms and judging single screen collections.
Some (more than one) have claimed the first week share of this movie will be only 1-2 crore. Well I remember some claims way back in 2012 that Kalpana wouldn't collect more than 2-3 cr share in it's entire run. But later the concerned predictions were slapped by the movie collecting double the share that had been "predicted".
I Love U hasn't opened to a blockbuster opening, but it's not as bad as some are predicting/claiming either , some fans' heroes' last movies have just fizzled out and they may be insecure to compare this movie with those.
Kalpana2 had collected a first week share of 3.25 crore. Mukunda Murari had collected first week share of over 5 crore. Performance of I Love U is currently better than Kalpana2 & slightly lesser than MM (which had more multiplex audience), so based on simple logic the first week share should be anywhere between 3 to 5 crore (or better) based on the weekend and the weekdays trending. Certainly it will be more than the said insecure predictions.
SundayMovie has taken Above Average to Decent Opening.
