Due to the normal working day after a big holiday, the Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff starrer WAR dropped on Thursday, Chiranjeevi’s pre-independence drama Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy was decent while Joker stayed afloat at the box office.
WAR, took a thunderous opening from 4000 screens across India and opened to an occupancy of 70% in the morning shows across India. WAR picked post noon and got a stellar response from the paying audience, making a big impact at the ticket windows in the evening and night shows. By the end of the day, WAR had collected Rs 51.60 crore beating the record of the Aamir Khan and Amitabh Bachchan starrer Thugs Of Hindostan, which holds the record for the highest opening day collection in Bollywood with Rs 50.75 crore (Hindi version). Co-incidentally, both films are produced by Yash Raj Films. With Tamil and Telugu version (Rs 1.75 crore), WAR has done a spellbinding business of Rs 53.75 crore and again beating Thugs Of Hindostan which collected Rs 52.25 crore (in all versions). The opening day collections of WAR is also the highest opening of 2019 beating the Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif starrer Bharat, which collected Rs 41.80 crore on its first day.
Due to the normal working day, WAR dropped somewhere between 55-60% as compared to the first day which is usual. As per early trade estimates, the action drama starring Hrithik Roshan, Tiger Shroff and Vaani Kapoor should collect somewhere between Rs 24-25 crore and bring the 2 days total to Rs 77-78 crore. The budget of WAR is Rs 200 Crore (Production Cost: 180 Crore, Prints & Advertising Cost: 20 Crore).

Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy
Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy dominated the Southern region but Chiranjeevi and Amitabh Bachchan starrer failed to click in the Hindi version. Met with average reviews, Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy collected a poor Rs 2.60 crore on its first day from 1200 screens in North India.
As per early analysis, Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy dropped slightly but maintained the pace well with Rs 2.10 crore, bringing the two days collections to Rs 4.70 crore.
Welcomed with phenomenal reviews at the Venice film festival, Joaquin Phoenix starrer Joker, a spin-off character of the super hero film, Batman, impressed the audience at the city multiplexes. As per trade estimates, Joker collected a very good Rs 5.75 crore on its first day and should pick up as the days progresses. This is a very good number considering Joker not being an action-oriented super hero film but a dark psychological thriller.
Due to the normal working day, Joker dropped on the second day, minting Rs 3-4 crore, bringing the 2 days total to Rs 8-9 crore.
