The opening weekend box office collection of Sushant Singh Rajput starrer "Detective Byomkesh Bakshy!" was decent.
Despite limited screen count, the film managed to earn ₹5.36 crore on Sunday. The first weekend total of Sushant starrer stands at ₹14.06 crore.
"#DetectiveByomkeshBakshy Fri 4.20 cr, Sat 4.50 cr, Sun 5.36 cr. Total: ₹ 14.06 cr. India biz," trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted.
"Detective Byomkesh Bakshy!" directed by Dibakar Banerjee has been released in just 1240 screens in India.
The crime drama had a opening of ₹4.20 crore, but failed to show growth on the second day, i.e. on Saturday. The second day collection of the film was in the same range as of opening day.
However, the business showed decent growth on Sunday due to word of mouth. Several shows in Bangalore, Mumbai and other major cities were housefull.
On Sunday the film managed to rake in approximately ₹5.36 crore, which helped the film to have a good opening weekend.
"Detective Byomkesh Bakshy!" opened to rave reviews, but clashed with Hollywood movie "Furious 7" at the domestic box office. Since the release, "Furious 7" had taken the lead at ticket window affecting the collections of Sushant starrer.
Nevertheless, the collection is decent keeping in mind the screen count.
Meanwhile, Bollywood celebs have showered praises on Sushant starrer "Detective Byomkesh Bakshy!".
