Tubelight opened to an impressive opening box office figure but comes up short with actor’s previous blockbusters. Salman Khan film rang up Rs 21.15 crore on the first day. Trade analyst Taran Adarsh confirmed the same.  Kabir Khan directional has already amassed $1.05 million (6.6 crore rupees) in UAE-GCC, Dubai and other areas where it was released one day ahead of its India release, according to boxofficeindia.com. That paves way for some decent weekend collection for the film in this territory. The film opened to a positive response across North India, with some areas registering as high as 60-70% occupancy in morning shows. Film trade expert Girish Johar told indianexpress.com that bad reviews will do little to dampen the box office prospects of Salman Khan film.

Taran also tweeted comparing the day one collection of Salman Khan’s previous Wid releases. He wrote, “Salman and Eid – Day 1… 2012: #ETT 32.93 cr 2014: #Kick 26.40 cr
2015: #BB 27.25 cr 2016: #Sultan 36.54 cr 2017: #Tubelight 21.15 cr”

“I doubt that bad reviews will affect Tubelight’s box office collections. Even some critics gave bad ratings to Baahubali. You also have to note that Tubelight is a very unlike Salman Khan film. He has always played to the gallery, portraying larger-than-life characters on screen. Here he is playing a simpleton. Also, all Salman Khan fans will surely go to watch movies no matter what reviews say,” Girish said.

Girish also added, “Since it’s a long weekend, people will come out in huge numbers to watch the film”. Tubelight is expected to take around Rs 25 crore home on its opening day. The numbers will swell as the weekend begins and will reach their zenith on the day of Eid, which is a holiday. Salman’s film are traditionally Eid releases and the day sees houseful collections for him at the box office.

In Tubelight, Salman Khan plays a simpleton who lost his soldier brother (played by Sohail Khan) during 1962 Indo-Sino war. That also propels Salman’s character to understand the grave consequences of war including its futility.

Kabir Khan recently said that he wanted to make the film with an idea of faith and belief, but also wanted to keep it very contemporary. The film has also got a galaxy of supporting actors including late actor Om Puri, Mohammed Zeeshan Ayyub and Malayalam actor Isha Talwar. The film also stars Chinese actor Zhu Zhu.

                Salman has his blind fans who will lap up any movie he acts in the name of entertainment. It will be no surprise if Tubelight with its low content also turns out to be a blockbuster. A case of non-actor being a super star and making huge money!
