Box Office: Uunchai trends very well over the weekend, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever crosses 40 crores mark

By Joginder Tuteja

Finally there is a Bollywood film in 2022 which started at a low number on Friday and then went on to grow truly well over the weekend. Unchai had its first day standing at 1.81 crores and while it seemed fine against the controlled release that it had got, it still needed to rise over the weekend to warrant greater count of shows and screens for itself. After all, there is a lot of competition around it with Black Panther: Wakanda Forever on one side this week and then Drishyam 2 on the other side next week. Hence, growth needed to come for the film.

Thankfully, this has happened indeed with collections jumping further to Rs. 4.71 crores on Sunday. The collections were quite good on Saturday as well when a major jump was seen and that’s how the game started changing for this Sooraj Barjatya directed film. Otherwise, for long most of the films have been playing only in Rs. 2-3 crores zone on Saturday and Sunday. With this healthy jump, all that’s required now is for Monday to be greater than Friday. As long as that turns out to be the case, there is stage and platform for the Amitabh Bachchan, Anupam Kher and Boman Irani starrer to flourish further over Rs 10.16 crores that it has collected so far.

Meanwhile, the game is already set for Black Panther: Wakanda Forever which has now crossed the 40 crores mark after its opening weekend. That’s quite good because a handful of films have managed that in entire 2022 and most of these have been event films. Here, the Marvel flick is a regular release even from Hollywood and hence for it to fetch these kind of numbers is indeed remarkable. The film saw one of the best days in theatres for any language film ever since the release of Brahmastra and brought in Rs 15.50 crores* which has helped push its total.

*Estimates. Final numbers awaited

Note: All collections as per production and distribution sources
