As the government has given a green light to open theaters from 15th October onwards, many production houses and filmmakers, whose films were halted due to the pandemic situation, have started announcing the release of their next project. The latest in the pipeline was the comedy drama Suraj Pe Mangal Bhari which has interesting star cast Manoj Bajpayee, Fatima Sana Shaikh, Diljit Dosanjh, Annu Kapoor, Supriya Pilgaonkar, Vijay Raaz and Seema Pahwa.
Suraj Pe Mangal Bhari became the first Hindi release ever since the lockdown to hit the theaters during the Diwali festival, though the occupancy was pretty less considering the precaution taken by the theater owners and the permissible occupancy has been set at 50 per cent by the state government.
Suraj Pe Mangal Bhari opened to just Rs 55 lakhs which is very less considering the star cast and the promotion but this is certainly better than a commercial film releasing on OTT. Suraj Pe Mangal Bhari continued to mint money on the lower level with total almost close to Rs 4 crore, collecting this much amount in 10 weeks as per Box Office India :-
Rs 1.59 crore in first week,
Rs 88 lakhs in second week
Rs 41 lakhs in third week
Rs 28 lakhs in fourth week
Rs 21 lakhs in fifth week
Rs 16 lakhs in sixth week
Rs 14 lakhs in seventh week
Rs 17 lakhs in eight week
Rs 13 lakhs in ninth week
Rs 3 lakhs in Tenth week (3 days)
Suraj Pe Mangal Bhari has got decent reviews from both critics and audience alike. Suraj Pe Mangal Bhari is directed by Abhishek Sharma who has made films like Parmanu: The Story of Pokhran (2018) and Tere Bin Laden (2010). Suraj Par Mangal Bhari is produced by Shariq Patel and Subhash Chandra under the banners Zee Studios and Essel Vision Productions,
