The new Bollywood Hindi movie “Half Girlfriend” was being passed around by 229,006 file sharers just two days after it hit theaters on May 19, 2017! The hefty number of P2P users sharing the film has driven the romance-drama right to the top spot on the May Hindi movies list for films released in 2017. Despite this early success, the number of fans sharing the movie hasn’t come close to the big winner in 2017 so far, “Raees”, or the second installment of “Baahubali 2: The Conclusion”, which drew numbers twice as high as those for “Half Girlfriend”.
The country distribution for the new release looks identical to that of all the Hindi movies we reported on in the first quarter of 2017. To reiterate, that means “Half Girlfriend” was mainly shared by fans of Hindi movies from India, building a fan base that makes up almost 75% of the worldwide total. Other countries sucked into the Bollywood Hindi movie were, unsurprisingly, neighbor countries like Pakistan, the United Arab Emirates, Nepal and Saudi Arabia. Zooming in a bit closer, the highest file sharing activity at the city level can be observed in Mumbai, Delhi and Kolkata.
