Box-Office Report: Amitabh Bachchan-Taapsee Pannu’s ‘Badla’ earns more than ‘Pink’
Amitabh Bachchan and Taapsee Pannu‘s latest release ‘Badla’ seems to have performed better than Bachchan’s earlier films. The first-day collection of ‘Badla’ seems to have been a little bit affected by Hollywood film Brie Larson’s ‘Captain Marvel’, which raked in Rs 10 crore at the domestic box office in India. Sujoy Ghosh’s crime-thriller ‘Badla’ has managed to earn Rs 5.04 crore on its opening day.
Taking to Twitter, trade analyst Taran Adarsh shared the first-day collection of ‘Badla’ which is better than Amitabh Bachchan and Taapsee Pannu’s ‘Pink’. The court drama ‘Pink’ had earned Rs 4.32 cr on its opening day. According to reports, ‘Badla’ got limited screen amount of around 1,000 screens across the country, which also restricted the business of the film. The occupancy for the film was almost 10 per cent at the theatres on Friday.

Our film critic Sameer Jha, in his movie review wrote, “Even though ‘Badla’ is nowhere in the league of ‘Andhadhun’ as a thriller, it is still an engaging film that has plenty of twists and turns to keep you on the edge of your seats. With stellar cinematography, riveting performances and a gripping background score, the movie wins on all counts. So much so that I could hear a man sitting behind me clap passionately every time Sujoy Ghosh deftly executed a smart twist.”
‘Badla’, is produced by Red Chillies Entertainment in association with Azure Entertainment. It is an official remake of the 2017 Spanish film ‘The Invisible Guest’.
