Despite getting rave reviews from critics, Vikramaditya Motwane's directorial "Loteera" is a disappointment at the worldwide box office.

The romantic period drama, which showed growth in business during the first weekend, saw a sharp decline on Monday. The collections dropped by 30-35 percent on Monday from its opening day.

The Ranveer Singh-Sonakshi Sinha starrer raked in ₹2.7 crore on the first Monday, taking the four-day total to ₹21.2 crore.

#Lootera Weekend ₹18.5 cr, Mon 2.7 cr. Total: ₹21.2 cr nett," trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted.

"Lootera started with a poor opening and first day numbers were not impressive. The film marginally picked up over the weekend," distributor Sunny Khanna told Mid-Day.

On the overseas front, the film's earning was below expectation. The opening weekend figures were quite dull. The film has minted ₹4.64 crore from the international market in the first three days of its release.

"#Lootera *opening weekend* UK £ 69,153 [₹62.62 lacs] ... USA-Canada $ 375,442 [₹2.28 cr] ... UAE-GCC AED 920,000 [₹1.52 cr] and Australia A$ 39,078 [₹21.57 lacs]," Adarsh said.

The film did well in US-Canada and UAE-GCC markets, while in the rest of the circuits the earnings were not up to the mark.

Adding the overseas and domestic total of the film, the film's four-day earnings stand at ₹25.62 crore.

In India, the film is doing better in multiplexes than in single screen which is one of the main drawbacks. Taking note of this trend, the film will find it difficult to continue its four-week run at the box office.
