Something exciting is finally happening in theaters with double-digit scores on Monday as well. Post release Shaitaan, it's been a relatively quiet time in theaters, and while there has occasionally been some sort of movement over the weekend, the scene has been pretty dry during the weekdays. Fortunately, this was not the case at least this Monday, with Crew and Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire holding up well and contributing more than Rs. 10 million rupees.

Let's talk about Crew first. The film had grossed Rs. 10.28 crore on its opening day (good Friday partial holiday) and that had given it a boost. Therefore, on Monday it was expected that even if Rs. 4-5 crores come in, and that too without any BOGO support or reduced ticket price offer, even that would be pretty good. This is what happened when Rs. 4.52 crores were collected and that is on par with the kind of merits that the multi-woman star boasts of. As a result, it can now be expected that the rest of the days of the week will also be stable as the movie was certainly liked and the collections will continue to increase from Rs. 37.12 crore accumulated so far.

as for Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire, has actually fared even better and on Monday rose to Rs. 6 crores*, which is really good. After a start of Rs. 12.60 crore, where collections were again helped by the partial Good Friday holiday, to fall by around 50% on Monday, a normal working day, is truly impressive. Even more so because there has been no prior or subsequent media push or any type of marketing or public relations. Still, the fantasy action-adventure film has arrived and is doing as good business in India as it has done globally. With Rs. 43.60 crore* already in its kitty, the film will continue to do business for around Rs. 57-58 crore at the end of the first week.

*Dear All. Final numbers are awaited

Note: All collections according to production and distribution sources.
