On Saturday, Jayeshbhai Jordaar saw a 30% increase in ticket sales, bringing in roughly Rs 3.75-Rs 4 crore nett, which is not good. On Saturday, the rise was slower than for films like Runway 34 and Jersey, and those films were unable to make significant advances on Sunday.
As per Box Office India, the film's two-day gross is Rs 7 crore nett, with the weekend gross expected to be between Rs 11.50 and Rs 12 crore nett. Despite a lacklustre theatrical run, the picture will easily break even because of high digital and satellite pricing, but the film has been rejected. Over the last two years, digital has been a lifesaver, saving numerous films from financial ruin.
The film has performed poorly across the board, with the Mumbai circuit performing better than the rest, although this is minor in the grand scheme of things. The following is Jayeshbhai Jordaar's two-day business.
On Friday, approximately Rs 3 crore was earned, while on Saturday, it showed a slight growth of Rs 4 crore. The total collections were roughly Rs 7 crore.
Meanwhile, as per reports in Pinkvilla, the industry estimates that Jayeshbhai Jordaar will be shown on roughly 2000 screens across the country, with multiplexes hosting the majority of the screenings. It was never expected to play well on single screens or in mass pockets because it is a social comedy. Jayeshbhai Jordaar is a film that perfectly fits within the category of what was once known as a "Saturday film" before the pandemic.
Given its genre and appeal, the picture will rely heavily on audience word of mouth, which, if positive, will result in a surge in collections beginning Friday evening and continuing through Saturday and Sunday. The first reaction to advance bookings has been disappointing, falling far short of even the trade's modest expectations, and the destiny of the day will be largely determined by walk-ins throughout the day.
The film is directed by debutant Divyang Thakkar and features Ranveer Singh, Shalini Pandey, Boman Irani, and Ratna Pathak Shah in pivotal roles.
