Vidyut Jamwal's action thriller film "Commando - A One Man Army" has collected ₹11.18 crore in the opening weekend.

The film's earnings were better on the release date, but saw a dip on Saturday before finally picking up the following day.

"#Commando collected approx ₹11.18 cr nett in its opening weekend. Breakup: Fri 3.69 cr, Sat 3.39 cr, Sun 4.10 cr," trade analyst and film critic Taran Adarsh tweeted.

"#Commando Fri 3.69 cr. Excellent at single screens of mass circuits," he tweeted earlier.

The three day domestic total of the film stands at ₹11.18 crore.

The film did well on single screens compared to multiplexes, where the collection was comparatively low.

The film is ranked in second place at the box office. Romantic comedy film "Nautanki Saala" starring Ayushmann Khurrana has topped the list with ₹13 crore.

Both the films were released on the same day and had received good reviews from critics.

"Commando" is directed by Dilip Ghosh and produced by Vipul Shah. It also features Miss India Pooja Chopra and Jaideep Ahlawat in lead roles.

The film's title was taken from an Arnold Schwarzenegger starrer and the plot is based on Hollywood's 1982 blockbuster film, "First Blood".

Two weeks before the release of the film, Vidyut's girlfriend Mona Singh, a popular television actress, was in the news over the circulation of a morphed MMS video online. The controversial video was said to be a publicity stunt for the promotion of the film.

A source close to the couple has denied reports about the video creating hype for the film saying, "The clip has emerged at a time when Vidyut's film is about to release. Everyone knows Mona and Vidyut are dating. Someone's tried to make it look as though Vidyuthas done this for publicity."
