AVENGERS: ENDGAME has done outstanding business in the first week and is going sensationally strong in its second week too.
Tarpan failed miserably in the first week in Bombay as well as Delhi-U.P.
Avengers: Endgame (dubbed), its English original of the same name and the Tamil dubbed and Telugu dubbed versions did phenomenally well in 1st week, smashing a lot of old records and creating new ones. It netted Rs. 53.60 crore on the opening day, surpassing the first day of Thugs Of Hindostan (Rs. 52.25 crore). It collected Rs. 52.20 crore on Saturday, and Rs.52.85 crore on Sunday, taking the first weekend’s total to Rs. 158.65 crore!! Collections during the weekdays were also sensational: Monday – Rs. 31.05 crore, Tuesday – Rs. 26.10 crore, Wednesday – Rs. 28.50 crore (partial holiday for Labour Day and Maharashtra Day), Thursday – Rs. 16.10 crore. Its total for the weekdays was Rs. 101.75 crore. The grand total for the first week, therefore, was a mind-boggling Rs. 260.40 crore!
Kalank crashed all over in 2nd week. As against Rs. 74.55 crore in the first week (of 9 days), it collected only Rs. 5.28 crore in the second week – a drop of more than 90%!! It collected only Rs. 0.70 crore on the first day of the second weekend owing to the opposition of the newly-released Avengers: Endgame and also because of its poor public reports. Collections on Saturday and Sunday were Rs. 1.15 crore and Rs. 1.50 crore respectively. It took the second weekend’s total to a dismal Rs. 3.35 crore. Collections during the weekdays were as follows: Monday – Rs. 0.50 crore, Tuesday – Rs. 0.45 crore, Wednesday – Rs. 0.63 crore, Thursday – Rs. 0.35 crore. It thus added Rs. 1.93 crore to its kitty during the weekdays. In this way, its second week’s total was Rs. 5.28 crore. The grand total for 2 weeks was, therefore, only Rs. 79.83 crore.
The Tashkent Files continued to score in the big cities in its third week despite the opposition of Avengers: Endgame. It collected Rs. 0.40 crore on the first day of the third weekend. Collections increased to Rs. 0.65 crore on Saturday, and Rs. 0.90 crore on Sunday. After collecting Rs. 1.95 crore in the third weekend, it collected as follows in the weekdays: Monday – Rs. 0.40 crore, Tuesday – Rs. 0.50 crore, Wednesday – Rs. 0.65 crore, Thursday – Rs. 0.40 crore. In other words, its total for the weekdays was the same as in the weekend – Rs. 1.95 crore – which is quite unusual! In this way, the film added Rs. 3.90 crore to its kitty and took its 3-week total to a respectable Rs. 11.49 crore.
