The madcap ensemble comedy genre has seen its first disappointment of the year, with Pagalpanti opening to disappointing box office figures. Already, comparable movies, such as Total Dhamaal and Housefull 4 had seen incredible success at the domestic box office.
Pagalpanti box office collection day 3
As indicated by a report, Pagalpanti could manage just around Rs 20 crore in its opening end of the week. This misses the mark regarding Total Dhamaal, which had made Rs 62.4 crore in its first end of the week, and Housefull 4, which made over Rs 53 crore in its initial three days. Pagalpanti missed the mark regarding even a week ago’s Marjaavaan, which opened to Rs 23 crore at its first end of the week.
Pagalpanti, featuring John Abraham, Anil Kapoor, Arshad Warsi, Kriti Kharbanda, Pulkit Samrat and others, made around Rs 5 crore on the very first day, Rs 6.25 crore on day two and Rs 8.25 crore on day three. The film has gotten poor reviews no matter how you look at it.
A review from a news source called it ‘a collection of improvised scenes rather than a film made from a real script. The performances are wooden, dialogues stilted and regressive, and the story – well, there isn’t one. This one is best avoided.’
Meanwhile, Disney’s Frozen II is in a gridlock with Pagalpanti, with a net profit of Rs 22 crore and net earnings of Rs 19.1 crore. Trade analyst Taran Adarsh composed that the vivified spin-off made Rs 3.3 crore on the very first day, Rs 7.5 crore on day two and proceeded with an upward pattern on Sunday, with the income of Rs 8.6 crore.
Sidharth Malhotra and Tara Sutaria’s Marjaavan is creeping towards the Rs 50 crore mark in the box office, yet can’t be announced a success yet, thinking about its high budget. Ayushmann Khurrana’s Bala crossed the Rs 100 crore mark at the India box office throughout the end of the week.
#Frozen2 is a success… Goes from strength to strength… Emerges big fav of kids/families… Crosses *lifetime biz* of #Frozen [₹ 2.8 cr] on *Day 1* itself… Fri 3.35 cr, Sat 7.10 cr, Sun 8.65 cr. Total: ₹ 19.10 cr Nett BOC. #India biz. All versions. Gross BOC: ₹ 22.74 cr.
