Box-Office Report: ‘Uri’ scores over ‘The Accidental Prime Minister’ in its first weekend
The Aditya Dhar directorial ‘Uri: The Surgical Strike‘ starring Vicky Kaushal and Yami Gautam is on a minting spree. The movie has surpassed the collection of Anupam Kher starrer ‘The Accidental Prime Minister’ that is directed by Vijay Ratnakar Gutte. Though the theme of both the films revolves around the country, the war drama has won over politics.
‘Uri’ had managed to collect around Rs. 8.20 crores on its opening day. The film showed a growth of around 40% on its second day and went on to mint Rs. 12.43 crores on Saturday. On Sunday, it collected Rs. 15.10 crores making it a winner with the total weekend collection now standing at around Rs. 35.73 crores.
Whereas ‘The Accidental Prime Minister’ managed to earn Rs 3.50 crore on its first day and nearly Rs 4 crore on the second day and on Sunday, it went on to earn Rs. 4.50 crore. The total collection of the political drama is around Rs. 12.00 crore. On the whole, the collection for the movie is quite good as it is a sort of a documentary. Though it was helped by the controversy surrounding its release, we do wonder if it will manage to maintain the collection over the weekdays.
At present, ‘The Accidental Prime Minister’ is lagging far behind ‘Uri: The Surgical Strike’. The war drama is racing ahead and is pushing the political drama far behind.
