Antim: The Final Truth recorded healthy collections on Sunday, as third-day numbers have come in the order of 7.75 crore Rs, bringing the opening weekend for this gangster drama to 18.05 crore Rs. It’s a decent weekend for this Aayush Sharma vehicle powered by Salman Khan, which is made on a limited budget and all eyes are now on the crucial Monday test.
Monday in the range of Rs 3 crore would give the film the legs to record a healthy trend over the weekend and close the first week with just under Rs 30 crore. It would then boil down to the second weekend, as the Mahesh Manjrekar-directed film will be on a journey to get closer to the half-century figure who is set to emerge as the second successful film about the pandemic after Sooryavanshi. The biz is run by Maharashtra, with Gujarat and Delhi finally coming into the picture on Sunday.
The second release of the week, Satyameva Jayate 2, reached Rs 3 crore on Sunday, taking the four-day total to around Rs 10.00 crore. The film was a low opener and stayed low all weekend, which is a sign of rejection from the audience. Bihar was the best course for SMJ 2, where it even scored better showing than Antim. The Milap Zaveri instruction manual does not stand a chance of becoming a successful venture, and it remains to be seen whether the lifetime of SMJ 2 can go past the opening day of Satyameva Jayate 1.
Rohit Shetty’s police universe, Sooryavanshi, with Akshay Kumar at the forefront, continued its brilliant run at the box office when it reached $ 1.90 billion. Rs. on his 24th day. Sooryavanshi’s total biz is now at Rs 189.97 crore, which is simply fantastic in pandemic times. The total sum of this entertainer is the highest for a Bollywood film in the last 20 months and there is a strong possibility that this is the highest grossing film in 2021 where only the likely competitor is the Ranveer Singh front 83 ‘directed by Kabir Khan. There’s still an outside chance for Sooryavanshi to break past the Rs 200 crore mark, but it’s all to wait and see every single day going forward. It’s a true-blue success, a pure hit, in fact a super hit in the box office with all stakeholders in profit.
The total sum of these 3 films on Sunday was around Rs 13 crore, which in turn is a good result that brings smiles to the lips of exhibitors who have seen a dull phase for the longest time.
