“Mission Mangal” is continuing its strong performance at the box office. On Thursday, the film set a new record by collecting Rs. 6.93 crores, which is even better than the collections on Wednesday (Rs. 6.84 crores). This is a remarkable achievement for the film and is a clear indication of its popularity among audiences.
It is possible that this success could also be attributed to the partial holiday of Janamasthami, which may have led to better audience footfalls during the evening and night shows on Thursday. The film, directed by Jagan Shakti, stars Akshay Kumar, Vidya Balan, Nithya Menon, Taapsee Pannu and Sonakshi Sinha, tells the story of the Indian Space Research Organisation’s (ISRO) Mars Orbiter Mission, also known as the Mangalyaan, and is a fictionalized account of the events leading up to the successful launch of the mission and the challenges faced by the team.
The film has been praised for its performances, particularly by Akshay Kumar and Vidya Balan, as well as its compelling story and stunning visuals. The film’s portrayal of the ISRO and its mission to Mars has struck a chord with audiences and has been widely praised for its inspirational message.
The film led by Akshay Kumar has had a strong opening week, collecting a total of Rs. 128.16 crores. This is a very impressive number and even if this were to be the final total for the film, it would still be considered a success. However, it is expected that the overall lifetime collection of the film, directed by Jagan Shakti, will surpass the Rs. 170 crores mark.
This would solidify its status as a superhit film. The film has received positive reviews from audiences and critics alike and has generated significant buzz in the industry. The strong performance at the box office is a testament to the hard work and dedication put in by the cast and crew. The success of the film is a great achievement for all involved and is sure to be a boost for the entire film industry.
Despite its impressive first-week collection, the film may have had the potential for an even greater lifetime gross if not for the release of competing films. The release of Batla House, which also debuted around the same time, likely affected the film’s performance.
Additionally, the upcoming release of Saaho next week is expected to take away a significant number of screens from Mission Mangal. Despite these challenges, the film is off to a strong start and is likely to continue to perform well in the coming weeks.
The film’s success is likely to continue when it is released on satellite and digital platforms, as it is expected to find a large audience on these mediums as well. Despite the competition, the film has been able to maintain its strong performance and has become a hit.
