Amitabh Bachchan and Taapsee Pannu’s revenge thriller Badla has been making its presence felt at the box office. The Sujoy Ghosh directorial has earned Rs 59.77 crore till now.
Film trade analyst Taran Adarsh shared the latest box office figures of the movie with a tweet that read, “#Badla is dominating the marketplace… Refuses to slow down on weekdays… Will cross *lifetime biz* of #Pink in Week 2 itself… [Week 2] Fri 4.05 cr, Sat 6.70 cr, Sun 8.22 cr, Mon 2.80 cr. Total: ₹ 59.77 cr. India biz. Gross BOC: ₹ 70.52 cr.”
In fact, Badla happens to be one of those rare movies that has achieved both critical and commercial success. The Indian Express’ film critic Shubhra Gupta gave three stars to the film and said in her review, “Two dead bodies. Two locations: one in the open, in a forest; the other a closed-room, made popular by Agatha Christie’s novels. Are the two connected? Who is the killer? The one who is arrested? Or someone else? Badla, an official remake of a Spanish murder mystery, pulls off a mostly gripping whodunit, something Bollywood rarely manages.”
The Amitabh Bachchan and Taapsee Pannu movie has been produced by Shah Rukh Khan’s Red Chillies Entertainment and Azure Entertainment. The film is the official remake of the Spanish original The Invisible Guest.
Shah Rukh had earlier thanked the audience for showering love on the film. He had shared a post on social media that read, “So glad people are loving #Badla. A big thanks to the audiences who gave a warm welcome to the film!”
