In terms of Hindi-language film releases, it was a quiet day at the box office. On the first Wednesday, Dr Chandraprakash Dwivedi’s directorial Samrat Prithviraj, starring Akshay Kumar, Manushi Chhillar, Sonu Sood, and Sanjay Dutt, sank even more to a point beyond repair. The film saw the average Wednesday drop and numerous show cancellations for its morning broadcasts. In its fourth week, Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 is predicted to outgross Samrat Prithviraj, which was released in the second week. Vikram and Major, the dubbed south releases, are consistent, although at low enough levels to make a difference. Vikram, by Lokesh Kanagaraj, is a good example.
After a dismal first weekend of Rs. 39 crore nett, Samrat Prithviraj witnessed little consolidation on weekdays as the film declined. The picture has a 3.85 cr nett Wednesday after a Monday of Rs. 4.80 cr and a Tuesday of Rs. 4.15 cr. Given the involvement of a significant production house like Yash Raj Films and an A-lister like Akshay Kumar, one would anticipate more from this cooperation. Not only that, but the film had to be grossing at least twice as much as it is now, considering the budget and the enormous release window it has. Because the figures from overseas aren’t significant, the picture will struggle to reach a worldwide total of Rs. 100 crore.
Even on Wednesday, Vikram is causing havoc. On its sixth day, the film will surpass Rs. 250 crore in international box office receipts, putting it on the fast track to even greater success. It would eventually become the highest-grossing film in Tamil Nadu and the second-highest-grossing picture worldwide, trailing only Shankar’s 2.0 starring Rajinikanth.
On weekdays, Major is performing admirably. The box office continues to rise, and the picture is a smash hit domestically and internationally.
