Multi-starrer Fukrey Returns has surprised all with its excellent opening box office collection. After a superb start on Friday, the comedy film witnessed massive growth in its business on day 3. Starring Pulkit Samrat, Ali Fazal, Varun Sharma, Manjot Singh and Richa Chadha, Fukrey Returns opened up at the box office.
Although the movie did not receive many positive reviews from the critics, the audience seems to have liked it. Also, strong word of mouth for Fukrey Returns has been instrumental for its impressive box office business. Having made on a limited budget, Fukrey Returns is likely to almost recover its cost of production over the first weekend itself.
It is safe to say that the scenario would not have been the same if the big-budget Padmavati was released on its earlier scheduled date. Padmavati was supposed to hit the screens on December 1, just a week before Fukrey Returns. However, that did not happen, and thus Fukrey Returns is completely dominating the box office.
It is the second installment of franchise that was began in 2013 with Fukrey and witnessed good occupancy on the opening day due to high initial buzz. With overall 20-25% of occupancy and witnessed good growth over the evening and night shows in Northern regions while decent in other parts of the country. Overall on a good note, the movie raked the business of 8.10 crores at domestic box office.
On Saturday due to weekend and mixed reactions from viewers, Fukrey Returns witnessed good jump of around 39.5% and minted the amount of 11.30 crores. Then on the last of weekend i.e. Sunday, the movie showed more growth and garnered the impressive business of 12.80 crores, which has made its opening weekend domestic total as 32.20 crores.
