MOM saw a slow beginning on Friday, but it looks like the film has seen a massive growth on Saturday and bookings for Sunday. Trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted, “PVR – INOX – Cinepolis – Carnival… These *4 multiplex chains* saw combined growth of 83.54%… Other plexes + single screens data awaited.”

The film collected Rs 5.08 crores on Saturday and is expected to collect even more on Sunday. Taran added, “#Mom witnesses 75.17% growth on Sat… EXCELLENT trending… Sun should be higher… Fri 2.90 cr, Sat 5.08 cr. Total: ₹ 7.98 cr. India biz.”

He also tweeted  the collections from these multiplex chains and said, “ biz shoots up at *key multiplex chains*… Witnesses SOLID growth… Comparative data of *four multiplex chains* follows…”

MOM can earn Rs 5-6 crore on Saturday.”

When asked if Sridevi’s film will benefit from release in multiple languages, Girish had said, “Makers wanted to cash in on the popularity of Sridevi in southern states but only Monday will tell us if the film has been able to leave a mark.”

Girish also added that Spiderman: Homecoming will easily trump both MOM and Guest Iin London, “The film has already collected Rs 6 crores. However, it didn’t perform as per expectations. Its previous instalment did much better. Spider-man: Homecoming is a fun, entertaining film which is sure to rule box office in India.”

According to industry sources, MOM will have to pull up its socks to recover its cost of production. “The film is made on a budget of Rs 45-50 crore. It will have to do really well in order to make the profit,” a source told indianexpress.com. Looks like the
