‘Toilet – Ek Prem Katha’ will rule box office this week too

Akshay Kumar and Bhumi Pednekar-starrer ‘Toilet – Ek Prem Katha’ has been doing a great business at the box office. The movie has collected Rs 88 crore in six days, which is excellent. At this rate, the first week collection will be around Rs 95 crore, and on its second Friday itself the movie will enter the 100 crore.

Well, this week there are two releases, ‘Bareilly Ki Barfi’ and ‘Partition: 1947’. While the buzz about the former is less, only positive reviews and a good word-of-mouth can save it at the box office. And ‘Partition: 1947’, the Hindi dubbed version of ‘Viceroy’s House’ targets at niche audiences. So, undoubtedly, it will be ‘Toilet – Ek Prem Katha’ that will be ruling the box office this week.

If we compare ‘Bareilly Ki Barfi’ and ‘Partition: 1947’, then we can expect the former to be better at the box office. While the buzz of Ayushmann Khurrana, Kriti Sanon and Rajkummar Rao-starrer is less, there’s hardly any buzz of ‘Partition: 1947’.

‘Toilet – Ek Prem Katha’ has this week to collect as next week there are two biggies like ‘A Gentleman’ and ‘Qaidi Band’ up for the release. However, if these films don’t get good reviews, Akshay Kumar-starrer would still continue to dominate at the box office in its third week.

‘Toilet – Ek Prem Katha’ had received mixed reviews from the critics. However, the positive word-of-mouth made the film grow day-by-day at the box office. Even the promotions of the film have done wonders as Akshay and Bhumi went the balanced route while promoting, neither over doing it, nor under doing it.

Seems like with ‘Toilet – Ek Prem Katha’, the famine that dominated the box office for nearly the first half of 2017, has come to an end. Let’s see if upcoming releases can match up to it or not.
