Tamasha 2nd Day Box Office Collection
Tamasha box office collections have started on a positive note with Deepika Padukone and Ranbir Kapoor starrer earning Rs 10.87 crore on day 1 at domestic box office. However, if we also include the money this movie made overseas, Tamasha box office collections would reach Rs 14.54 crore. However, low key advance bookings and mixed responses suggest that Tamasha despite posting decent opening day box office collections figures will witness a drop in the take as the weekend progresses – in short, it may not have the stamina to last the distance through the week. But though Tamasha has been well talked about in the weeks prior to its release, will it actually live up to the magic created by the leading pair Deepika Padukone and Ranbir Kapoor in their previous release Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani?
If one looks at it from the perspective of the actors in there, this is Ranbir Kapoor’s biggest opening of the year. His Roy (where he had an extended guest appearance) had brought in 10.4 crore on Friday while Bombay Velvet was way behind [5.2 crore]. On the other hand Deepika Padukone’s Piku was at 5.3 crore, only to grow from strength to strength. In fact Imtiaz Ali’s last foray with Ranbir [Rockstar – 10.6 crore] and Deepika [Love Aaj Kal – 8.25 crore] had opened less. Also, a niche Highway, which had brought together Imtiaz Ali and Sajid Nadiadwala for the first time, had a moderate opening of 3.42 crore.
“Tamasha”, which had decent advance bookings, was released in 2,100 cinema halls across India and it opened to a good response. The film registered an average of 35+ occupancy in both single screens and multiplexes in the morning show on Saturday. The movie received positive reviews from the viewers and critics and the word of mouth took its business upwards in the afternoon and evening shows. The film’s collections from across the country cumulatively reached a total of 13.17 crores on Saturday. The film’s total collections at the domestic box office now stands at 24.04 crores in two days.
With the film winning laurels for being the correct blend of realism and gloss, the film has its heart in the right place. The early collections has been satisfactory so far. The film with its strong advanced booking rate will ensure that the collections do not dwindle. The lead pair Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone are blowing away people with their brilliant chemistry and that happens to be the film’s strong point for its audiences.
