Dharti, Punjabi Cinema's first Political drama, is set to witness a monumental opening at the Box Office in India, Canada, UK, USA, Australia & Newzealand. Dharti which released in Australia a day before the worldwide release saw an exceptional response from the audiences.
In India, the film is releasing on a record 80+ prints with most of the best single screens in Punjab playing Dharti instead of Bollywood biggie Dum Maro Dum. The huge advance at multiplexes is also a first for any Punjabi Film. At Wave Ludhiana, which is a strong advance indicator for first show on first day, Dharti has already sold 260 tickets out of the total 316, whereas Dum Maro Dum has sold just 60 till Wednesday night.
The opening day is set to be at 95%-105% which is at par with biggies like Ekam - Son of Soil and Mel Karade Rabba, it should be noted that Dharti is releasing with almost double the prints of these films.
There are some records that are certain to be broken by Dharti. One of them is the opening weekend record, Mel Karade Rabba grossed 2.8 Crores in the 1st Weekend. Going by the initial response, the worldwide weekend gross of 4-4.5 Crores is a huge possibility for Dharti.
Now, the question is will it sustain from there on? Will it be the biggest Punjabi grosser ever? Drop in your viewpoints in the comments section.
