Abhishek Bachchan, Taapsee Pannu, And Vicky Kaushal starrer Manmarziyaan and Jacky Bhagnani starrer Mitron released this Friday. Anurag Kashyap’s directorial romantic drama film received mixed reviews from the critics despite intriguing trailer and awesome songs by Amit Trivedi. The movie earned Rs. 3.52 Crore on opening day beating Mitron.
Manmarziyaan showed good growth on the second day i.e. Saturday by earning Rs. 4.75 Crore, which is good but it needed to show little more jump considering the first day was way too low. The collection is not as strong as everyone was expecting. After all, it was comeback film of Abhishek Bachchan who has been out of showbiz business for more than 2 years. It would be interesting to see how it holds up in the coming days. As of now, Manmarziyaan has grossed Rs. 8 Crore which is good but not great.
Manmarziyaan Box Office Collection:
Friday: Rs. 3.52 Crore
Saturday: Rs. 4.75 Crore
Total: Rs. 8.27 Crore
On the other hand, Mitron directed by Filmistaan fame Nitin Kakkar once again failed to make an impact despite the quirky trailer and super hit songs. The movie opened very low with just Rs. 45 Lakhs in the first day. On the second day, it earned Rs. 70 Lakhs, which is way too low. It is unlikely that the movie will recover its cost of Rs. 20 Crore.
Mitron Box office Collection:
Friday: Rs. 45 Lakhs
Saturday: Rs. 70 Lakhs
Total: Rs. 1.15 Crore
Love Sonia is very poor and it won’t go anywhere. The movie earned Rs. 25 Lakhs on the first day and Rs. 40 Lakhs on the second day.
Love Sonia Box Office Collection:
Friday: Rs. 25 Lakhs
Saturday: Rs. 40 lakhs
Total: Rs. 65 Lakhs
Manmarziyaan has won the box office battle against Mitron as of now. It seems that Manmarziyaan will take lead in coming days too. But it will be interesting to see how it holds up, as it will show where the movie ends as far as lifetime business is considered.
