[tps_footer]‘Dishoom’ starring Varun Dhawan, John Abraham and Jacqueline Fernandez has crossed its first weekend at the box office. Directed by Rohit Dhawan, the film made a mark in the minds of the audience for its songs and trailers. Nevertheless, the hype created by the film did not translate into massive collections. ‘Dishoom’ is an action-filled film and has received mixed reviews.
The movie opened on an average note of 30% at the box office. The collections until now have been above average. The film was expected to do well in the regions of Delhi/UP but it did not fare. The Varun starrer movie is receiving a tough competition in the Punjab circuit from the film ‘Bambukat’.
The film ‘Bambukat’ has gained excellent opening and is also receiving loads of viewers. The action-oriented film with the credible star cast has gained maximum collections in Mumbai. The Saturday was a weak one for ‘Dishoom’ and now the film has to bear the load of weekdays.
The first weekend collection of the film is Rs. 11 crore net approx. (Rs 110 million) on Friday, Rs.11.75 crore net approx. (Rs 117 million) on Saturday and Rs.14.25 crore net approx. (Rs 142 million) on Sunday. The total collection of ‘Dishoom’ is Rs.37 crore net approx. (Rs 370 million)
The film is slow in its earnings in spite of a huge popularity. On the contrary, the four-week-old film ‘Sultan’ is still gaining viewers which is also a bad sign for ‘Dishoom’. The movie has to improve in its weekday earnings in the regions of East Punjab and Delhi/UP.[/tps_footer]
