The statement cannot be denied that, Salman Khan’s much hyped latest offering Tubelight is not getting much response at box office. The movie had massive pre-release hype among audience, although most of the viewers have reacted in favor of Tubelight but some critics have not found it up to the mark. Also the Muslim fans of Salman were not able to watch the film before Eid. Despite all these, it is not showing any impressive performance on box office.
With 21.15 crores, Tubelight registered the second highest opening collection of 2017 so far. It has also emerged as highest opening weekend grosser with total business of 64.77 crores, that includes 21.15 crores of Friday, 21.17 crores of Saturday and 22.45 crores of Sunday. The figures are not higher than previous ones but far lesser than the level of Salman Khan.
Now the movie has entered in weekdays and unfortunately witnessing very low response of audience. On Monday it faced more than 8% of drop in its business and minted the amount of 19.09 crores as its 4th day collection across 4350 screens of India. On the next day i.e. Tuesday, it reported almost similar response and added slightly lesser amount of 12 crores as its 5th day collection.
After 5 days, total domestic collection of Tubelight is recorded as 95.86 crores. The biggest advantage that Tubelight carries is the fact that there is no competition from past, present or future. It arrived solo, there was no holdover release from the past that was running and there is no biggie to compete with in the coming week either. This means the arena is wide open for Salman Khan and his Tubelight to still shine on in week to come.
