This Friday, we saw not one but four films clashing at the box office. Kajol starrer ‘Helicopter Eela’, Sohum Shah’s ‘Tumbbad’, Rhea Chakraborty and Varun Mitra starrer ‘Jalebi’ and Govinda starrer ‘FryDay’ released hit the silver screens yesterday. With so many films releasing on the same day, obviously, it is going to be tough for all of them to have a good run at the box office.
All the four films have received mixed to poor reviews and only one of these films stars an A-lister actress i.e Kajol. According to a report in Box Office India, out of all the films, ‘Helicopter Eela’ has earned the highest amount. On its day one at the box office, ‘Helicopter Eela’ has earned Rs. 75,00,000 approximately, with ‘Tumbbad’, ‘Jalebi’ and ‘FryDay’ earning Rs. 50,00,000 , Rs. 35,00,000 and Rs. 25,00,000 approximately.
Interestingly all these films belong to the different genres. ‘Helicopter Eela’ is a story of a single mother and her son. ‘Tumbbad’ is a mystery thriller, ‘Jalebi’ is a romantic drama and ‘FryDay’ is a comedy flick.
When so many films release on the same day naturally they eat into each others’ business. Now it has to be seen if in the coming days the collection of these films increases or they still continue to struggle. Also, it has to be seen which among these four films emerges as a winner.
Stay tuned as we will keep you updated about these films’ performances at the box office.
