Akshay Kumar-starrer ‘PadMan’ opened to a decent business of Rs 10 crore nett. Even though, the numbers were decent, the movie failed to beat the opening day business of his earlier movies like ‘Toilet – Ek Prem Katha’, ‘Rustom’, ‘Jolly LL.B 2’ and so on.

Now, the movie has showed good growth at the box office on its second day. ‘PadMan’ has raked in Rs 13.50 crore nett on Saturday taking its two-day business to Rs 23.50 crore nett. The growth is around 35% which is good, but still lesser than ‘Toilet – Ek Prem Katha’. (Also Read: PadMan movie review: Story of an ordinary man who spun wonder out of life’s straw)

‘PadMan’ showed good growth in Mumbai circuit whereas in South India, the movie has performed better than ‘Toilet – Ek Prem Katha’. The growth of the movie is similar to ‘Jolly LL.B 2’, however, the latter flick had much more audience last year.

This time, in spite of ‘PadMan’ postponing its release from Jan 25 to Feb 9 to provide a clear window to ‘Padmaavat’, SLB’s movie is still in theatres and doing well. So, some business is bound to get affected. Let’s wait to see how the movie performs on Sunday.

'Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety' BEATS 'Welcome To New York' on day one at the box office

This Friday, two movies clashed at the box office which included ‘Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety’ and ‘Welcome To New York’. The first day box office numbers are here so let’s find out which movie managed to earn how much.

The Kartik Aaryan, Nushrat Bharucha and Sunny Singh-starrer ‘Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety’ did a business of Rs 6.50 crore nett approximately. The best numbers came from Delhi NCR and East Punjab circuit.

The evening shows of the movie showed strong occupancy. Overall, the movie has performed well despite competition from ‘Welcome To New York’. (Also Read: Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety movie review: ‘Bromance VS Romance’, a refreshing-enjoyable war)

Talking of ‘Welcome To New York’, the movie has a disastrous opening as it did a business of Rs 75 lakhs nett. Considering the budget which is more than ‘Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety’, the movie can’t go anywhere. Probably its spoof content has worked against it at the box office.

Clearly, ‘Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety’ is the winner and that too by a large margin.

'Black Panther' overpowers 'Aiyaary' in the first weekend, as the latter disappoints

Neeraj Pandey’s thriller ‘Aiyaary’ starring Sidharth Malhotra and Manoj Bajpayee in the lead roles has registered a poor business in its first weekend.

The movie did a business of Rs 4.25 crore nett on Sunday which is exactly the same as its Saturday business and the three day total business is Rs 11.75 crore nett which is a disappointment. Even, Sidharth’s earlier outing ‘Ittefaq’ which was made at half the budget of this movie had done a better business of Rs 14.82 crore nett in its first weekend.

The American superhero flick ‘Black Panther’ which released on the same day as ‘Aiyaary’ has overpowered the latter and has done a decent business of Rs 18.75 crore nett over the weekend. Even though the numbers aren’t great, they are much better than ‘Aiyaary’.

Coming back to the crime thriller, the start hasn’t been a good one and considering the foreign locales and the star cast, the budget of the movie is surely above Rs 30 crore nett. So, if you take the budget into consideration, the collections are quite low and the movie needs a huge boost in the weekdays to earn any profit whatsoever.  (Also Read: Aiyaary movie review: The men in army fail to shine through the muddled up plot)
