Three new Hindi films released last Friday (14 September) — Anurag Kashyap’s Manmarziyaan, Nitin Kakkar’s Mitron and Tabrez Noorani’s Love Sonia. Of these, Kashyap’s Manmarziyaan was the most hyped film. Sadly, despite fairly good reviews, the romantic-drama failed to drive the box office. It just made Rs2 crore nett on its first Monday (17 September), as reported by Boxoffceindia.com. The film’s four-day collection stands at Rs15.75 crore nett.

Made at an estimated budget of Rs30 crore (prints and advertisement included), Manmarziyaan was released across 1,500 screens in India. The Monday collections dropped over 60% when compared to the film's collection on Sunday, where it bagged Rs5.75 crore nett.

Does Stree's success mean Rajkummar Rao is now a commercially viable star?

Kakkar’s Mitron, starring Jackky Bhagnani, too, had a fairly decent buzz around it, but the film only managed Rs35 lakh on first Monday. Mitron has so far made just Rs2.50 crore nett in four days. Made at an estimated of Rs15 crore, Mitron released across 800 screens.

Given its hard-hitting subject of human trafficking, Tabrez Noorani’s Love Sonia targetted a niche audience. The film earned Rs20 lakh on Monday and its total earnings in India now stand at Rs1.35 crore nett. 

Our confidence grew at every stage, says director Amar Kaushik as Stree crosses Rs100 crore mark

Meanwhile, holdover release, Stree, continued to grow steadily as it bagged Rs1.75 crore nett on its third Monday. The film, directed by Amar Kaushik, has so far bagged Rs105.77 crore nett in domestic business.
