Ranbir Kapoor's "Tamasha" has concluded the first weekend with a decent collection at the Indian box office and it has come closer to the mark of Rs 40 crore nett in the domestic market in 3 days.
Ranbir Kapoor has got two big flops like "Roy" and "Bombay Velvet" to his credit in 2015. So everyone was curious about the performance of his latest outing "Tamasha", which garnered a lot of attention through its promos. The makers also had massive promotions for the film before its release.
"Tamasha" was released in 2100 cinema halls across the country, which is a lesser number for Ranbir Kapoor's film as his recent movies have been released in over 3000 theatres in the domestic market. The movie had a good amount of advance booking in metro cities, but had a poor booking in other urban areas.
The Imtiaz Ali-directed-romantic comedy film opened to an average response in the morning shows on Friday, but word of mouth took its occupancy to the next level in the later shows. "Tamasha" collected Rs 10.87 crore nett at the Indian box office on the first day. But it failed to beat records of Ranbir's previous films like "Besharam" and "Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani".
"Tamasha" garnered mixed response, but the maximum audience had a positive word for it which helped the movie show a good jump in its collection on Saturday. On its second day, the movie collected 13.17 crore nett at the Indian box office, taking its two-day domestic total collection to Rs 24.04 crore nett.
The Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone starrer witnessed further growth on Sunday. On its third day, "Tamasha" is estimated to have collected approximately Rs 14.12 crore nett at the Indian box office. Its three-day domestic total stands at Rs 38.23 crore nett. The movie has beaten the record of Ranbir's "Besharam", which collected 34.37 crore nett in its opening weekend.
It is a fantastic collection for Tamasha, when looked at its small screen count. Taran Adarsh tweeted, "#Tamasha has a strong weekend. Fri 10.94 cr, Sat 13.17 cr, Sun 14.12 cr. Total: ₹ 38.23 cr. India biz.
