Thappad Box Office: Taapsee Pannu starrer seems to be getting appreciation from a section of its target audience as the first-weekend trend of the film has been healthy.
After an opening day of 3.07 crores, Thappad showed an impressive jump of 70% approx on Saturday by collecting 5.05 crores. As per early estimates, on Sunday the film has again shown a good jump of around 30-40%. This means that Sunday numbers can be in the range of 6.5-7 crores.
This takes the weekend total of the film around 15 crores which is a fair result. However, it’s important for the film to pass Monday test with flying colours now. Given the opening day of 3.07 crores, the Monday should be in the same range.
In January this year, Kangana Ranaut starrer Panga released which had similar audience. That film took a lower opening compared to Thappad but enjoyed even better jump on Saturday. Sunday was in same range as well but it was on Monday that film dropped. For Thappad to survive, it will be very important to hold strongly on weekdays and then in second week as well.
Thappad talks about the disrespect that women have to face in a marriage due to patriarchal mindset of the society.
Apart from Taapsee Pannu, the film also stars Pavail Gulati, Dia Mirza, Tanvi Azmi and others.
