Arjun Kapoor, John Abraham, Tara Sutaria and Disha Patani starrer Ek Villain Returns was expected to do some sort of business at the box office and break the dry spell at the box office. That’s what the film has done as the film opened to good numbers of 7.05 cr nett in the domestic market and then managed to register slim growth despite mixed reviews.
These mass films are generally critic-proof and that is why film collected 7.47 cr nett on Saturday with a 6% growth from Friday. Ek Villain Returns again grew well on Sunday with 9.02 cr nett number and thus finished the weekend with 23.54 cr nett which is a fairly good result for the film.
The film added 3.02 cr nett on Monday which was a good hold. The film again collected 2.50 cr nett on Tuesday followed by 2 cr nett on Wednesday & 1.90 cr nett on Thursday. Film has total of 32.96 cr nett & 41 cr gross week one in domestic market.
The film sprung a real surprise in the overseas market and collected 345k $ on Friday itself which was amazingly good. Film is going super strong in UK with a surprise hit status. The film collected 600k $ plus over the weekend and has crossed almost 1 million $ by end of week one.
Ek Villain Returns has worldwide gross of 52 cr in week one. Film should add more numbers in 2nd week as it has no major competition and should add 7-9 cr nett minimum for 40 cr nett plus lifetime.
A moderate success and first one for mid budget film post pandemic!
