Not a good news for Tiger Shroff and Team Munna Michael. The film, which released in 3000 screens (1.7 times more than previous week release, Jagga Jasoos) across India, has managed to earn Rs 6.65 crores, only on Day 1.
Munna Michael received a positive response from the janta coming out of single screens but critics and trade analysts said that it’s just meant for Tiger’s loyal audience, not everyone will enjoy the film.
Trade expert Taran Adarsh took to Twitter to share the first day figures, he tweeted, "#MunnaMichael Fri ₹ 6.65 cr [3000 screens]. India biz”
People coming out of the shows spoke highly about Tiger's dance moves and action stunts, however, they were vocal about the lack of a storyline.
The film has been made on a budget of Rs. 45 crores. While trade expected an opening of Rs 10 crores, the actual figures are surely disappointing. It will not be an easy task for the film to cover the cost over the weekend.
We spoke to a few trade experts as well yesterday, who had mixed views about the film. Trade Expert Amod Mehra said, "Munna Michael will have its own set of loyal audience in the single-screens, but not at the multiplexes. The minus point for Munna Michael is that the film is rather too long, and the 2nd half isn't up to the mark. It's a paisa vasool for the masses but not for others.”
Trade Expert Akshaye Rathi opined, “Munna Michael is doing very well at massy centres. However, the Hollywood release Dunkirk has opened up to phenomenal business at multiplexes. So it's a fairly mixed bag this week. None of them is a Baahubali or a Tubelight, but they have really good potential. Also, Jagga Jasoos might do well over the weekend.”
Munna Michael, directed by Sabbir Khan, is Tiger’s 3rd venture with the director after Heropanti and Baaghi. While Heropanti earned Rs 53 crores, Baaghi enjoyed a lifetime run of Rs 77 crores.
Let’s wait to watch if Tiger’s fans will hit theatres over the weekend to escalate the figures.
