This is the power of a good movie and story which is unaffected by its low buzz or low pre-release appeal. Sidharth Malhotra, Akshaye Khanna and Sonakshi Sinha starrer Ittefaq has shown a very impressive earning trend on all 3 days and it has ensured the 15+ crore opening weekend at box office.
After minting 4.05 crore on its 1st Friday, Ittefaq grew on Saturday and collected 5.50 crore. On Sunday too, its favorable critics reviews and good word of mouth has helped its boost its footfalls, eventually earning 6.50 crore on 3rd day.
The total of Ittefaq is 16.05 crore in 3 days. This is a handsome total for a thriller which had a stiff competition from Hollywood movie Thor: Ragnarok yet it has sustained well.
Now, weekdays will be taking its test but if it can hold there too, then Ittefaq will be having a great further box office run. 2-2.5 crore/day in weekdays will also be enough as it doesn’t have much budget so cost recovery won’t be any trouble.
Remake of 1969’s film by the same name, Ittefaq’s mystery killer story has been taken positively by the audience. The makers must be happy with such a pleasant performance by the film. Ittefaq is directed by Abhay Chopra.
