Rajkummar Rao’s survival thriller ‘Trapped‘ has witnessed a decent growth in its opening weekend. Despite having merely 300 screens in India, this Vikramaditya Motwane directorial has still managed to bring in 1.44 crore in 3 days.
The film has a niche topic which is appealing to mostly metro cities so it didn’t get much screens yet the multiplex audience from Mumbai, Delhi and Kolkata have turned up in fair numbers to watch the movie.
Trapped has got amazing reviews and the content of the movie is being loved by the audience. It’s good to see that strong stories are garnering the attention of people.
1st weekend collections of Trapped:
Paid Previews – 3 lacs
Friday – 26 lacs
Saturday – 46 lacs
Sunday – 69 lacs
Total – 1.44 crore
Other release ‘Machine’ has failed to show any significant increase at box office. Machine had got more screens than other new releases yet it didn’t make any mark with audience. The reviews for the film are also bad. It has only managed to collect around 1.50 crore so far.
Weekdays will be a huge challenge for these movies to find a crowd. They are looking like a one week affair.
