Ranveer Singh starrer Simmba is doing quite well for itself at the box office. In a matter of just three days, the Rohit Shetty directorial crossed the Rs 50 crore mark, and how. Now, the cop drama is inching towards the 100-crore mark. It has earned Rs 96.35 crore so far.
Trade analyst Taran Adarsh shared the box office collection of Simmba. He tweeted, “#Simmba ends 2018 on a thunderous note… Records superb numbers on Mon [31 Dec]… Will continue its victory march today [1 Jan]… It’s #Simmba wave at the BO… Fri 20.72 cr, Sat 23.33 cr, Sun 31.06 cr, Mon 21.24 cr [better than Fri]. Total: ₹ 96.35 cr. India biz.”
After having given the recently released Shah Rukh Khan film Zero a run for its money, the remake of Temper has a clear path ahead of itself, and is expected to continue the winning streak in days to come.
Simmba had raked an impressive Rs 20.72 crore on the opening day itself, surpassing the expectations of trade experts, who in turn had predicted that the movie will mint something around Rs 18 crore.
However, the film’s narrative has drawn flak for rehashing old ideas. The Indian Express’ film critic Shubhra Gupta wrote in her review, “In Singham Returns Again, oops, sorry, Simmba, a police officer sloughs off his rough-and-ready skin and emerges as the saviour of the poor and meek. Wait, haven’t we seen that before? Bad question, because this one could just as well have been called Singham part 3.”
Simmba also happens to be the biggest opener of Ranveer Singh’s career, who had made his debut in Bollywood with 2010’s Band Baaja Baaraat.
