Badla, starring Taapsee Pannu and Amitabh Bachchan in the lead roles, is doing great business at the box office and finished its second weekend with a bang. The film has so far collected Rs 56.70 crore at the box office.
Film trade analyst Taran Adarsh shared the latest figures on Twitter. Revealing that Badla has beat Brie Larson starrer Captain Marvel with a good margin, he wrote, “#Badla is unstoppable and unshakable… Collects more than #CaptainMarvel in Weekend 2 [in fact, #Badla leads by a big margin]… Power of solid content… [Week 2] Fri 4.05 cr, Sat 6.60 cr, Sun 8.05 cr. Total: ₹ 56.70 cr. India biz. Gross BOC: ₹ 66.90 cr.”
He further added in another tweet – “#Badla is trending superbly… Shatters the myth [within the industry] that film biz hits rock bottom during examinations and pre-Holi period… Despite new films taking away screens/shows, #Badla *Weekend 2* [₹ 18.70 cr] is slightly lower than *Weekend 1* [₹ 23.20 cr]. 👌👌👌”
Declaring Badla a “hit”, Taran also gave a break-up of the film’s business week-wise. He wrote, “#Badla biz at a glance… Week 1: ₹ 38 cr Weekend 2: ₹ 18.70 cr Total: ₹ 56.70 cr India biz. HIT.”
Helmed by Sujoy Ghosh, Badla is a suspense thriller which revolves around a young married entrepreneur (played by Taapsee) who finds herself in a locked hotel room next to the body of her dead lover.
In a bid to get out of the soup and hoping to find answers, she hires a renowned lawyer (played by Amitabh) to help her solve the mystery of what really happened.
Thanking her fans for such an immensely positive response for the film, Taapsee in her Instagram post wrote, “Sitting here in Johri and reading all your messages for #Badla fills my heart with so much gratitude! You have made this film a memorable one for all of us! Keep sending more n more love. I can never have enough of it!”
The Sujoy Ghosh directorial marks Amitabh Bachchan and Taapsee Pannu’s second film after 2016 hit-flick Pink and just like the courtroom drama, this thriller also received overwhelming reviews from critics.
Besides Amitabh and Taapsee, the film also features Manav Kaul and Amrita Singh among others in significant roles.
