Tumhari Sulu: Vidya Balan-starrer shows a growth during its first weekend

Tumhari Sulu collection

Vidya Balan-starrer ‘Tumhari Sulu’ started on a slow note collecting Rs 2.65 crore on Friday. But, thanks to the positive word of mouth, the film showed an amazing jump on Saturday. Though the film didn’t manage to get a huge jump on Sunday, the weekend collection is not at all bad.

On Saturday the film collected Rs 4.25 crore and on Sunday it collected approximately Rs 5 crore, taking the three-day total to Rs 11.90 crore. The movie is already a profitable venture for its makers as even before the release the budget of the film was recovered. But, to be a hit theatrically, the movie surely needs to continue to do well on weekdays. If the first Monday collection is anywhere near the Friday collection, then the movie has high chances of getting the hit tag.

The weekend collection of ‘Tumhari Sulu’ is more than Vidya’s last release ‘Begum Jaan’ (Rs 10.73 crore), but it failed to beat the weekend collection of ‘kahaani 2’ (Rs 16.51 crore).

Vidya had back-to-back flops at the box office, so let’s hope that ‘Tumhari Sulu’ continues to do well, and finally gives the actress a much needed hit.

Talking about ‘Golmaal Again’, in its fifth weekend, the film has collected Rs 75 lakh approximately, taking the till date total to Rs 203.64 lakh. Sidharth Malhotra and Sonakshi Sinha-starrer ‘Ittefaq’ also had few takers in its third weekend. The film collected Rs 60 lakh, so the total collection of the film is 26.83 crore. Well, if not a hit, ‘Ittefaq’ has surely proved to be a semi-hit at the box office.

'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)

'Black Panther' eats 'Aiyaary' on the first day at the box office

The third week of February saw two releases. One was Bollywood film ‘Aiyaary’ which stars Sidharth Malhotra, Rakul Preet, Manoj Bajpayee and Pooja Chopra in the lead whereas the other one is Hollywood film ‘Black Panther’.

‘Aiyaary’ was earlier slated to release in the Republic week but postponed it’s release because director Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Padmaavat’ finally managed to release. Even Akshay Kumar-starrer ‘PadMan’ postponed it’s release.

Talking about the first-day collection of the Neeraj Pandey directed patriotic thriller, the film managed to collect 3-3.25 crore nett at the box office.

 

The ‘Black Panther’ managed to collect 5-5.25 crore nett at the box office. Reportedly, the Hollywood film only had 55% of the Bollywood film’s screen space but still managed to collect numbers. (Also Read: Aiyaary: Sidharth Malhotra, Manoj Bajpayee’s film banned in Pakistan)

Next week two Bollywood films namely ‘Welcome to New York’ and ‘Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety’ are slated to release and looks like ‘Aiyaary’ doesn’t stand chance to make up in the second week also.
