Before Anil Kapoor, Arjun Kapoor’s Mubarakan released, Bollywood was already rising from the loss of flop films like Tubelight, Jagga Jasoos and Munna Michael. Everyone’s hopes were high with Mubarakan. The film is unshakable at the box office. Being a family entertainer, the film was expected to attract a large number of people and at least till now it’s doing a good job at the same.
Anees Bazmee’s directorial Mubarakan was released on an average note but witnessed good growth over the weekend due to positive word of mouth. It did the business of 22.91 crores from 2350 screens nationwide in the opening weekend, with 5.16 crores of Friday, 7.38 crores of Saturday and 10.37 crores of Sunday.
Now the movie is running in weekdays and recorded usual drop in their footfalls. With the drop of around 31.20% than Friday, Mubarakan minted the amount of 3.55 crores on Monday and 3.45 crores on Tuesday. On Wednesday, it faced 6% of dip and garnered the business of 3 crores to make it’s 6 days domestic total as 32.91 crores.
Many still think makers chose the wrong release date for the film as it’s coming just before the storm of big and awaited films. But the collections prove otherwise and it indicates only thing, content is the only king. The good thing for the film is, if trending is going to be the same way till Friday, it may retain a good amount of screens to make it to the second week.
This week we will see the release of Shah Rukh Khan, Anushka Sharma’s Jab Harry Met Sejal which surely will act as a roadblock in Mubarakan‘s steady run. There is a rare chance, but if Jab Harry Met Sejal receives a lukewarm response it will be a win for Mubarakan.
