NAUTANKI SAALA and COMMANDO
The two new releases of last Friday, T-Series' NAUTANKI SAALA! and Vipul Shah's COMMANDO-A ONE MAN ARMY, were on similar grounds on the opening day. However, the turn of events on the next two days of the weekend went as per our Saturday update. Despite having more prints and opening well at the single screens, the Vidyut Jammwal starrer, COMMANDO, started lagging behind the Ayushmann Khurrana starrer from Saturday itself, with NAUTANKI SAALA! picking up by almost 30 percent. On the contrary the collections of COMMANDO fell by 10 percent. The last day of the weekend, Sunday again saw a surge in collections for NAUTANKI SAALA! while COMMANDO too saw a nominal pick up. The advantage that NAUTANKI SAALA! has is that the producers have already pre-sold all the rights and are in the profit zone while the all India rights have been procured by Wave Distributors at a very reasonable price of around 11-12 crores.
