It tells the story of a cop who is on the trail of a missing woman. Sanya Malhotra plays the female lead role in the film. HIT stands for Homicide Intervention Team. The film was released on July 15. While HIT failed to stand out on its opening day, revenue from its first weekend in theaters exceeded expectations. With positive word of mouth, the film resumed on day 4.
HIT: THE FIRST COLLECTION AT THE BOX OFFICE
According to early estimates, on Day 4, Hit: The First Case showed a slight jump. If the numbers are to be believed, the film is looking to nearly double the opening day occupancy at multiplexes across the country. On day 3, the collection was reportedly Rs 2.30 crore, bringing the total figure to Rs 5.59 crore. The film had earned Rs 1.35 crore on its first day. Hit: The First Case performed better than Taapsee Pannu standout Shabaash Mithu, who failed to do good business on its opening day. Meanwhile, HIT had an overall Hindi occupancy of 16.58% on Sunday, July 17.
Business analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted: “#HIT: #TheFirstCase finds flavor among [premium] multiplexes, but the total for the weekend is far from satisfactory [despite day-wise growth]…Days of the week are crucial…Must maintain day 1 levels through day 4…Fri 1.35 cr, Sat 2.01 cr, Sun 2.23. Total: 5.59 cr. #India biz (sic).”
