Manmarziyaan had a fair weekend at the Box Office as it managed to accumulate Rs. 14.33 crore. The film saw further jump in collections on Sunday as a result of which Rs. 5.70 crore more came in. Had the collections been closer to the Rs. 20 crore mark, it would have been even better, more so since there was good effort from Anurag Kashyap, Aanand L. Rai and Eros when it came to taking the film to the audiences.
That said, the collections are still on the same lines as Anurag Kashyap’s Bombay Velvet. That was the biggest film ever of the filmmaker when it came to scale, size, budget and cast, and had still collected only Rs. 16.20 crore. Here, Manmarziyaan is made at a much smaller scale and hence the numbers are still fair. This isn’t all as the entire first week numbers of Abhishek Bachchan‘s last solo release, All Is Well, was 19 crore. Ditto for Taapsee Pannu‘s last release Mulk which has collected around Rs. 21 crore in its lifetime. In that perspective, Manmarziyaan is still turning out to be the biggest for all involved.
As for Mitron, Jackky Bhagnani has actually seen better since his last release Welcome 2 Karachi had a weekend of Rs. 5.5 crore. That film also had Arshad Warsi though. In case of Mitron, the numbers are relatively lower with Rs. 2.25 crore coming over the weekend. The film now has to be very stable during the weekdays as well since that would decide the kind of stint that it enjoys in the second week.
