A Gentleman has turned out to be a very poor fare at the box office. On Monday it netted a mere 2.03 crores and with the four day total of 15.16 crores the writing is pretty much clear on the wall. The film is a disaster and will now be just counting days before its one week run comes to a close.


If one compares the film with a couple of other action movies that have released this year with a spy angle [Commando 2, Naam Shabana], A Gentleman is much lower. Commando 2 with a lesser star (Vidyut Jammwal and Adah Sharma) value had netted 15.74 crores in just three days and A Gentleman hasn’t managed this number even after four days. Naam Shabana, of course, had Akshay Kumar in a special appearance but then the margin is further bigger as the film with Taapsee Pannu in the lead had brought in 18.86 crores.

Box Office - A Gentleman is very poor
Sidharth & Jacqueline’s A Gentleman Is A Very Poor Affair At The Box Office

This Sidharth Malhotra and Jacqueline Fernandez film did have potential to do better. However, for reasons unknown, there was just no build up prior to the release and that reflected in the collections. Even though the reviews weren’t scathing per se, there was just no turn around whatsoever over the weekend and that is making the film further suffer in the weekdays. A Gentleman had an opening day of 4.04 crores at the box office. This film had released with Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Bidita Bag’s Babumoshai Bandookbaaz and Anya Singh and Aadar Jain’s Qaidi Band.

Very disappointing!

  1. Friends it’s 100 times better than commando 2 ! You should really go for it as i have watched both the movies and i am sure you will love it!

  2. Just wait and see what happens!! As many cities of the northern region were sealed due to ram raheem case, so we weren’t able to go and watch the movieso u have to be patient before taking and decision and saying anything. Firstly, see what the situation was. A Gentleman will surely collect more box office collection. ?
