Ranveer Singh Starrer mega-budget much-awaited film released last weekend across 3300 screens all over India.
The film had huge expectations and the Christmas holiday presented a huge opportunity for mammoth biz but the film failed miserably. It was waiting for theatrical release for close to two years since the pandemic started but the film is rejected by the audience apart of from few urban centers.
The film opened at 25% opening and it was good in metros. But it managed only 12.64 cr nett on day one which was way below par.
The film needed to score all over to fulfill expectations of huge biz but it also faced stiff competition from Spider-Man and Pushpa as both the films are rock-solid in 2nd week also at the box office.
The film had below-par growth on Saturday considering it was the national holiday of Christmas. The film collected 16.95 cr nett with 35% growth but it needed minimum 60% growth. The film again grew marginally and collected 17.41 cr nett on Sunday.
The film has a total of 47 cr nett approx over the weekend. On Monday film needed minimum drop but it has dropped by 35-40% further from Friday and should collect close to 7.29 cr nett. The film added 6.70 cr nett on Tuesday with a further drop followed by 5.67 cr nett on Wednesday and 5.21 cr nett on Thursday.
Now with 71.87 cr nett in 1st week and film is heading for massive disappointment at the box office as all preview buzz and media hype failed to bring audience. It is heading for a lifetime of 90 cr nett.
And on contrary under similar circumstances, Hollywood biggie Spider-Man and south film Pushpa are doing massive numbers.
The success of Spider-Man and Sooryavanshi marks the fact that event films targeted at the masses are here to stay and urban films like 83 (its treatment is very urban) and Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui will find tough in near future.
