BVG Films and ASA Productions' horror 1920 – EVIL RETURNS, made on a humble budget, did better than what it set out to, raking in an impressive 4.05 crore at the box office on its first day, despite having the restraint of limited shows in multiplexes .
While mass circuits like CI, CP, and Rajasthan and UP did exceptionally well, the film also had encouraging numbers coming in from multiplexes thanks to its spooky moments, picturesque visuals and melodious and immensely catchy music, giving it a winning edge over the other releases.
According to reports, 1920 – EVIL RETURNS recorded a better opening day collection than many medium budget films which had a big publicity spend like KAHAANI, GANGS OF WASSEYPUR, FERRARI KI SAWAARI, and ENGLISH VINGLISH.
Aacclaimed critic and trade analyst says, ''Looking at the Friday numbers 1920-EVIL RETURNS, it should be titled, 'Vikram Bhatt Returns' with a bang, after RAAZ 3 and now this film. It has packed a punch on Day 1, especially at single screens of mass circuits.''
Says an elated Vikram Bhatt, ''It's overwhelming when something you've worked hard on bears fruit – We are glad audiences are embracing the film.''
BVG Films and ASA Productions' 1920- EVIL RETURNS released on 2nd November, 2012.
