The early reports depend on the unbiased reviews, distributors expectations and trade pundits. That is mainly associated with box office numbers.
The promos and promotional strategy have worked big time. The trade is extremely positive about the film as the advance booking is high. At most of the places, the film has recorded second highest advance booking of the year only after Sultan which gives it a chance to challenge Fan opening day.
MS Dhoni biopic is carrying mixed reports from inside. The long duration can be the main problem and thus it may not be liked by each section of the audience. The screening in Gulf was done today and the audience response was very much mixed as most of them find it dragged. That is rare as they tend to like even above average films. The same happened during Mohenjo Daro.
The film has been made on a huge budget and it needs a solid run to even recover the costs. Though Dhoni's name will draw the audience into the theaters as far the first weekend is concerned. But it can be tough to maintain the pace on weekdays.
