Soorma is a biopic on Indian hockey player Sandeep Singh. Singer-actor Diljit Dosanjh, who plays Sandeep in the film, has yet again proved his mettle as an artiste and has left the audience and critics impressed with his act. Despite competition from Sanju, Soorma has been able to hold its own at the box office with Rs 13.85 crore collection in three days.
The film collected Rs 3.20 crore on its opening day and showed an upward trend on Saturday with Rs 5.05 crore earnings. On Sunday, it garnered Rs 5.60 crore.
Taran Adarsh shared the latest box office figures of Soorma on Twitter, “#Soorma has decent weekend… Considering the low start on Fri morning, the biz did escalate over the weekend, but the jump on Sun wasn’t substantial enough… Maintaining the pace on weekdays is important… Fri 3.20 cr, Sat 5.05 cr, Sun 5.60 cr. Total: ₹ 13.85 cr. India biz.”
The Indian Express critic Shubhra Gupta in her review praised Diljit’s performance. She wrote, “Diljit Dosanjh as Sandeep Singh is spot on. And that is the film’s biggest triumph. Whenever Dosanjh is on screen, we are with him, as he goes through Singh’s arc—the struggle to please a vicious bully of a local coach (Hussain) who gets his jollies from beating up young players, the falling in love with the bright-eyed Harpreet ( Pannu), who is an equal dab hand with the stick and who wants to play for India as much as he does, the shocking incident on a train which leads him to paralysis, and the tough, painful journey back to the field.”
