Tu Jhoothi Main Makkaar Box Office Day 1: Good Start!

It was said that the opening of Tu Jhoothi Main Makkaar would be between 14 and 15 crores. Well, this is what happened when the rom-com opened at the box office with 15.73 crores. This is pretty good, because since Pathaan came out, nothing else at the theaters was doing well. Before Pathaan, the only other Bollywood movie to have a good opening was Drishyam 2, which made 15.38 crores in November. This basically clarifies why the business has been heading through a drought.

So, a double-digit opening was the first move in the right direction. Since this Luv Ranjan film is expensive, anywhere around 15 crores would have been a sweet spot, since from this kind of base, collections can grow well if the reviews are good. All of the reports about this Ranbir Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor movie have been good, so the box office should stay steady today and tomorrow and then start to grow again on Saturday and Sunday.

The movie has also done better than Bachchan Paandey, which came out for Holi last year and made 13.25 crores in its first week. However, the difference is not very big. The Akshay Kumar movie had a lot of competition from The Kashmir Files, which came out a week before it. Tu Jhoothi Main Makkaar, on the other hand, has no competition at all. On the other hand, an action movie like Bachchan Pandey has a lot more people interested, while a romantic comedy like Tu Jhoothi Main Makkaar, which is set in a city, would depend on word of mouth.
