The multi-starrer ‘Total Dhamaal’, despite being a non-holiday release, witnessed a fantastic first weekend, earning Rs. 62. 40.
He wrote, “#TotalDhamaal hits the ball out of the park... Swims past ₹ 60 cr... Word of mouth came into play on Day 1 itself... Terrific in mass circuits... Big growth at metros/plexes [Day 2 and 3]... Fri 16.50 cr, Sat 20.40 cr, Sun 25.50 cr. Total: ₹ 62.40 cr. India biz.”
The film minted Rs. 16.50 crore on its first day. On Saturday the film earned Rs. 20.40 crore and on Sunday it made Rs. 25.50 crore, taking its total collection to Rs. 62.40 crore.
According to Adarsh, the word of mouth for the film came into play on the opening day itself, which is probably driving its box office performance. While the comedy riot is performing well in the mass circuits, it has witnessed big growth in multiplexes as well.
‘Total Dhamaal’ is the third film in the ‘Dhamaal’ franchise. It features Ajay Devgn, Anil Kapoor, Madhuri Dixit, Boman Irani, Arshad Warsi, Riteish Deshmukh, Javed Jaffrey, Sanjay Mishra and Johnny Lever.
‘Total Dhamaal’ also brings back the magical duo of Anil and Madhuri after a hiatus of 19 years and the fans can't get enough of them.
The promos and songs of the film were not received well by the audiences and the movie opened to mixed reviews by the critics.
The cast and crew of ‘Total Dhamaal’ also donated Rs. 50 lakh to the families to the CRPF personnel, who lost their lives in the ghastly terror attack.
The film is helmed by Indra Kumar and hit the big screens on February 22.
