Compared to the other movie released this Friday, i.e. Vicky Donor, Hate Story is expected to do way better. You might remember the last time two talked about movies released on the same Friday, i.e., Jodi Breakers and Tere Naal Love Ho Gaya. Both the movies ate up on the business of each other but Tere Naal Love HO Gaya ultimately emerged as the winner. It seems Hate Story is going to emerge the winner this time except for Northern India where the local connect will help Vicky Donor do a bit better.

The first day morning box office opened with a 15-20% occupancy rate and the same went on to around 45% average occupancy in the evening. It seems Hate Story did better on the single screen theaters when compared to the multiplexes. Metros saw a poor collection but small towns did a pretty decent business with this film. The movie is expecting a good Saturday-Sunday collections. It will be crucial to decide the fate of the film at the Indian box office.

Seems the positive reviews of Vicky Donor coupled with negative reviews of Hate Story finally took its toll on the film. Starting off on a god note, the film made only a meager 11 crores in its 1st week at the box office. The movie is not expected to last long in the theaters. The release of multi-starrer Tezz is going to create another barrier for any further chances of this film.
