A Gentleman had a disappointing opening weekend. Right from its 1st day. The signs were there that audience is not coming for its shows but due to the mixed reviews and its stylish treatment, it was expected that it will show some impressive growth on Saturday and Sunday, but that has not happened.
A Gentleman has collected 13.13 crore in its 1st weekend. A 20 crore opening weekend was needed for the film which has a handsome budget but now, things are not looking very well for this action entertainer.
Here are A Gentleman’s Opening Weekend Box Office Collections:
Friday – 4.04 crore
Saturday – 4.36 crore
Sunday – 4.73 crore
Total Collections – 13.13 crore
There’s not much hope now for A Gentleman in weekdays and it will be out from most of the theaters from next week. It was the biggest release of this week but has disappointed. From overseas markets, A Gentleman has minted $1.1 million (7.03 crore).
On the other hand, Nawazuddin Siddiqui’s Babumoshai Bandookbaaz has already become a profitable venture at box office in 3 days flat.
It has collected 7.53 crore. Sunday numbers for the movie were better than its previous 2 days. Babumoshai Bandookbaaz’s budget is just 5 crore (Cost: 3 crore + PA: 2 crore).
This is a very smart marketing move by the makers of BB to keep the promotional activities to minimum and let the content run its course.
Here are Babumoshai Bandookbaaz’s Opening Weekend Box Office Collections:
Friday – 2.05 crore
Saturday – 2.41 crore
Sunday – 3.07 crore
Total Collections – 7.53 crore
Babumoshai Bandookbaaz is following the trend of Lipstick Under My Burkha, which also had a low buzz as well as low budget and it turned out to be an impressive profitable movie. Nawazuddin Siddiqui must be happy with the performance of this movie. It is directed by Kushan Nandy and also stars Bidita Bag and Jatin Goswami.
