While October was all about the stupendous performance of Golmaal Again at the box office, Bollywood saw a number of small-budget releases in November. And though most of them had a decent run at the theaters, they couldn't quite match up to Golmaal's Rs 204.52 crore domestic collection. The highest grosser for the month till now remains Sidharth Malhotra and Sonakshi Sinha's Ittefaq with its earnings of Rs 29.75 crore but it faces tough competition from Vidya Balan's Tumhari Sulu which stands at Rs 23.38 crore presently.

Ittefaq - Rs 29.75 crore

Sidharth Malhotra and Sonakshi Sinha starrer Ittefaq hit the theaters on November 3 with a collection of Rs 4.05 crore. Bankrolled by Shah Rukh Khan's Red Chillies Entertainment and Karan Johar's Dharma Productions, Ittefaq was applauded by critics. However, this whodunit remake of the 1969 Ittefaq couldn't charm the audiences as much, it collected Rs 29.75 crore in its run of three weeks. It also faced tough competition from Hollywood's Thor: Ragnarok which released at the Indian theaters on the same date.

Qarib Qarib Singlle - Rs 14.65 crore

Irrfan Khan and Parvathy starrer Qarib Qarib Singlle was an unusual romantic tale with the lead characters embarking on a journey to retrace their past relationships and find love somewhere in between. But even though this small budget was spoken highly of by film critics, it collected only Rs 14.65 crore in its run of two weeks. Having hit the theaters on November 10, the Tanuja Chandra film faced competition from Rajkummar Rao's Shaadi Mein Zaroor Aana.

Shaadi Mein Zaroor Aana - Rs 8.15 crore

Rajkummar Rao was on a roll this year. With sleeper hits like Bareilly Ki Barfi and Newton in his kitty, a lot was expected from his November 10 release, Shaadi Mein Zaroor Aana. But unfortunately, this romantic drama with a twist was not one to continue his winning streak. Also starring Kriti Kharbanda in the lead tole, it collected a total of Rs 8.15 crore.

Tumhari Sulu - Rs 26.19 crore

The latest release for the month, Vidya Balan's Tumhari Sulu, opened to a mediocre Rs 2.87 crore on November 17. But with the critics showering the film with rave reviews, it managed to collect a whopping 12.87 crore by the opening weekend itself. And in its nine days of collection, it has made a total of Rs 26.19 crore. Even though it released alongside Hollywood's much-awaited Justice League, it is going strong at the theatres.
