Box office: 'Himmatwala' runs out of steam, makes Rs. 31 crore in opening weekend

Himmatwala going down at the box office

Sajid Khan, the cocksure director of Himmatwala, may have to eat the boastful words about his latest venture as the film has fared below expectations at the box office.

The film, starring Ajay Devgn and Tamannaah in leading roles, opened to a collection of Rs. 12.1 crore on Friday, which, by the way, was a holiday on account of Good Friday. One expected the business to go up on Saturday. It didn’t. Rather it slumped as low as Rs. 8.5 crore (a decline of about 29 percent) which would come as a jolt to any filmmaker. Sunday brought in a little respite in the form of footfalls and the business showed a marginal increase to Rs. 10.5 crore.

The aggregate first weekend collection of Himmatwala stands at Rs. 31.1 crore which is clearly not up to the mark for a film that has got a wide release.

The film has been slammed unanimously by the critics, and the audience reactions too haven’t been flattering. The footfalls are more at single screen centres than at multiplexes.

Overseas, too, the response to the film hasn’t been great.

Earlier, Sajid Khan said that Himmatwala would surely storm into the 100 crore club and might even go on to make Rs. 200 crore.

Well, looking at the way the film has fared in the first three days, it would be a feat worth reckoning if it manages to scrape past Rs. 100 crore only.

The coming Friday would see the release of Chashme Baddoor and Rise Of The Zombie.
