Players Likely To Depend On Word Of Mouth
Boxofficeindia.Com Trade Network
Players will the first release of 2012 and the year will start with a big budget action thriller but the opening is not looking good. The advance all over is pretty dull and the film is likely to depend on word of mouth to get a jump in collections on Saturday and Sunday and come out with a decent weekend.
Players is getting a huge release of around 2000 screens so the potential to collect is there if it can manage good public reports.
The first day should do around 6 crore nett and that sort of collection gives a huge chance of big growth considering the release of the film. The directors Abbas Mustan have a good track record at the box office with these type of films and their last film Race (2008) was a huge hit so even with a not so happening cast and music, the content of the film may work.
Another advantage for the film is that there is no major release until Agneepath on 26th January so it has plenty of time to make a mark even with a low start.
