'Satyagraha' the latest directorial venture of the ace director Prakash Jha, featuring Amitabh Bachchan, Ajay Devgn, Kareena Kapoor, Arjun Rampal, Amrita Rao and Manoj Bajpai, knocked on the silver screen on August 30. Filled up with a noble social cause, this political-thriller has a broader outlook towards Indian society. The movie released across 2600-2700 screens and observed 35% to 45% occupancy during morning shows.
As predicted by the trade experts, the film will pick up well and will make wonderful records. 'Satyagraha' is based on the theme of corruption and its ill consequences on common people. The powerful star cast and weighty storyline adds up a great linen to the film. The energetic trailers soared up the audience's expectations to the sky high. Ajay Devgn also promoted this political saga on some television shows. Such heavy publicity was sounding enough to give the film an overwhelming opening. As per the reports, 'Satyagraha' started with a bang in the domestic market, gaining 70% to 80% occupancy at single screens. The movie saw average opening in multiplexes during morning as well as matinee shows.
Although the film critics bestowed 'Satyagraha' the mixed reviews, the film managed to receive heavy star value. As the film deals with the boiling topic of corruption, it dragged the youth as well as family viewers to the theaters. The movie was anticipated to take a big leap in afternoon and night shows. Moreover, the positive word-of-mouth publicity can work wonders to the film. In comparison with the other regions, Mumbai and Rajasthan performed better in gathering good collection on the first day of the film's release, reportedly. Going by the early trends, 'Satyagraha' should fetch approximately 8 to 9 crore nett on Friday.
'Satyagraha' should witness an ascending growth in its first week of release, as the chances indicate that it can confront competition from the next week releases, like Parineeti Chopra, Sushant Singh Rajput starrer 'Shuddh Desi Romance' and Priyanka Chopra's 'Zanjeer'. However, Prakash Jha's political-thriller may also have to manage itself in the race of earlier grand releases, including 'Chennai Express' and 'Madras Cafe'.
