Box office occupancy report: Manikarnika starts off well, while Thackeray is slow off the blocks

Here’s how Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi and Thackeray fared at the domestic box office!

Kangana Ranaut’s Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi and Nawazuddin Siddiqui’s Thackeray clashed at the box office today (January 25). And while the former has started off well, the later was slow off the blocks. Both the films had incredible buzz before release, but with Thackeray having a niche appeal, we knew this was going to happen! According to our trade expert, Manikarnika has performed very well across India, while Thackeray has opened well in Maharashtra. Pan-India, Thackeray has performed in a very disappointing manner and will need a major boost.

Talking to Cine Blitz exclusively, Akshaye Rathi (exhibitor and distributor) revealed to us, “Manikarnika and Thackeray have performed decently, with Manikarnika coming out on top. Kangana’s film has opened to a pan-India occupancy of 35 – 40 per cent. Thackeray, on the other hand, has managed 40 per cent only in Maharashtra. Across India, it has been as low as 10 per cent, which needs to improve.” But Akshaye suggests things will get better. As he added, “Both the films are getting good reviews from the public. So expect them to see a spike in terms of footfalls and collections by the evening and late night shows. Clearly, Manikarnika and Thackeray will end up with good collections on Day 1.”

Both, Manikarnika and Thackeray, are biopics on legendary leaders of India. They even star fantastic actors like Kangana Ranaut and Nawazuddin Siddiqui respectively. Both of them have been praised for their stand-out performances. But the films do lack in different departments. Have you seen either of the films?

The second half of 2019 is buzzing with films for Bollwyood. With a number of big and small film’s releasing the entertainment quotient will surely be high, but this abundance of movies will also make it challenging for many films. Especially, between June to August, Shraddha Kapoor will be the busiest star, let us tell you why.

In the third quarter of 2019, there are many interesting films coming up, amongst them Shraddha Kapoor turns out to be the only female star to have two back to back film’s releasing. Yes, now that Saaho’s release has been announced for Independence Day (August 15), August will be a busy month for Shraddha. Well, right after Saaho, Shraddha’s film with Sushant Singh Rajput, Chhichhore will release on August 30. In this film, Shraddha will be seen in some different eras of life.

Other than these two films Shraddha also has Street Dancer 3D, Rooh Afza and Baaghi 3 on her plate. With this busy schedule, the actress had to back out from the Saina Nehwal biopic, however, the near future for the actress looks busy but good and we wish her luck. Stay tuned to CineBlitz!

Tiger Shroff, Ananya Panday, Tara Sutaria’s Student of the Year 2 was one of the most-exciting releases of the year. However, it failed to take off at the box office. The movie had a decent first week and everyone expected it to show some upward trend in its second weekend at the box office. However, SOTY 2 had a lackluster second weekend. In fact, with minimal growth, the film could just manage to rake in Rs 6.62 crore in three days.

Student of the Year 2 earned Rs 1.62 crore on day 8 (Friday), Rs 2.25 crore on day 9 (Saturday) and Rs 2.75 crore on day 10 (Sunday). With that, SOTY 2 took its collection to Rs 64.52 crore at the domestic box office. With De De Pyaar De, John Wick 3 continuing their run at the box office, we expected Student of the Year 2‘s second week to be low. Meanwhile, what did you think of the movie? Share with us your review of SOTY 2 in the comments section below!

Directed by Punit D Malhotra and produced by Dharma Productions, Student of the Year 2 is a sequel to the hit movie, Student of the Year (2012). While the story and performances were decent, the execution lacked the punch. And hence, SOTY 2 got mixed reviews!
