thats it guys… why soooo many movies selected “friday” as release date? is there any magic in friday? is there any business logic? any sentiment on friday? even the tony stark’s AI name is also “F.R I.D.A.Y”

Movies are released on Friday to strategically take advantage of people’s free time and cash in on the demand for and escape out of boredom for the audience. The 3 day period from Friday to Sunday when the movie is released is known as the opening weekend of a movie.

Because Friday is holiday for Bollywood. So except some festival’s movies usually release on friday. Also good to capture weekend money.

1.concept of releasing Bollywood movies on Fridays comes from Hollywood’s practice of Friday releases with Gone With The Wind being released on 15th December, 1939
2.trend of releasing movies on a Friday didn’t start in India until the late 1950s. Neel Kamal released on 24th March, 1947, which was a Monday. Mughal-E-Azam was among the first movies to be released on 5th August, 1960 , a Friday. So we ended up adopting the British/American legacy after all, in the late 1950s.
3.Since there was no color television at that time, movies continued to be strategically released on Friday to make up for half-days on Fridays owing to informal norms in small scale industries in Mumbai
4.Also, Friday is considered as the day of goddess Lakshmi in India. So, releasing movies on Friday came from the belief that producers would be blessed with good wealth
5.There is also a commercial aspect to it. The screening fee that producers have to pay to multiplex owners is higher for days other than Friday.
