After an excellent 1st weekend, the action film starring John Abraham and Varun Dhawan dropped by more than 50% on its first Monday which is not a good sign.
“Dishoom” was critical for 3 people – John Abraham ( who was coming out of a flop “Rocky handsome”), Varun Dhawan ( who suffered a failure from “Dilwale”) and Rohit Dhawan (whose last film “Desi Boyz” was disappointing). “Dishoom” turned the fate of these people and also gave another success to Sajid Nadiawala who is already on cloud nine after a blockbuster called “Baaghi”
Coming to the economics of “Dishoom”, the action-comedy did a fabulous collection in its first weekend. “Dishoom” opened in line with trade expectations earning Rs 11.05 crores on its first day. Saturday was fine when the buddy-cop drama grew marginally minting Rs 12.02 crores. However, Sunday was excellent for “Dishoom” when the film had a strong growth with Rs 14.25 crores. But the Monday collection is alarming as the film went down to collect Rs 4.85 cores taking in the total to Rs 42.17 crores.
Considering the heavy rainfall making a splash in the entire country, strong results of “Dishoom” shows that audience has accepted the film. The budget of “Dishoom” is Rs 65 crores ( Production – Rs 40 crores, Printing & Advertising – Rs 25 crores)
