Bhoot Part One: The Haunted Ship continue its steady performance over the weekdays at the box office, but given how below par the opening was, coupled with how the film saw little to no growth over the weekend, the drops really needed to be lesser for the film to have any hope of emerging a theatrical success in the coming days. The Vicky Kaushal starrer hauled in Rs. 1.85 crore nett on Wednesday, day 6, taking hitherto its collection so far to Rs. 22.63 crore nett, which, though respectable as far as weekday trends go, doesn’t bode well for the film in the long run.

Despite the horror genre having been known to draw numbers from mass pockets in India, Bhoot Part One: The Haunted Ship hasn’t met with the same fortune as it neither bears the look nor feel of erstwhile Bollywood horror films. In fact, it resembles the Hollywood-styled Conjuring series (only in treatment), which is why the Vicky Kaushal starrer was looking at multiplexes for collections. However, other than the big plexes in Mumbai, Pune and Bangalore are the only ones which have performed, and that too, not at desired levels. On the contrary, the Hollywood horror movies that have clicked in India have worked at all the plexes, including those in Delhi, Kolkata, Hyderabad and a few other major cities.

On account of the low landing cost and a sizable amount already being recovered from digital, satellite and other auxiliary sources, Bhoot Part One: The Haunted Ship has financially turned out to be a safe bet for its makers. Nevertheless, it’s a film’s theatrical revenue that determines its commercial verdict, and given Bhoot’s costs, plus the fact that Vicky Kaushal’s last release, Uri: The Surgical Strike, was an all-time blockbuster, noting less than Rs. 40 crore nett was required for the film to attain a clean hit verdict at the box office. At this stage, it looks nigh impossible for the film to achieve that mark. Stay tuned to BollywoodLife for all the latest box office news and updates.
