Nawazuddin Siddiqui‘s Babumoshai Bandookbaaz is winning hearts and how! Small budget films are making more money at the box office and it’s a fact filmmakers are cashing in on. The recent example of the same was Irrfan Khan’s English Medium. Despite a small budget and less promotions, the film managed to rake in a very good number at the box office, making it one of the biggest hits of 2017! Having said that, let’s talk about Babumoshai’s success. As we all know, with the controversies the film underwent, it has received a great response. Be it the fantastic work of the very talented Nawazuddin or the badass action scenes, there are a lot of things that make this film worth recommending. On the first day, the film has managed to rake in a total of Rs. 2.05 crore. This excludes collections of Punjab, Haryana and Chandigarh.
On the same, a trade expert was quoted saying, ”By the end of the long weekend, Babumoshai Bandookbaaz would have already recovered it’s money with a considerable profit. The film was made in 3 crores with 2 crores allotted to promotion and advertising. The release day reports have been extremely promising and the collections will continue to be steady with the long holiday weekend ahead. There is no doubting that Nawazuddin Siddiqui is one of the finest actors we have in the country today. However, the collections and the response the film has received further reiterates how he manages to pull a crowd even as a lead protagonist. He is one of the few stars who boasts of a repertoire of both big ticket commercial films and content driven movies.”
You must know that despite facing a clash with Sidharth Malhotra – Jacqueline Fernandez’s A Gentleman and Aadar Jain – Anya Singh’s Qaidi Band, Babumoshai sure has performed well. While it hasn’t beaten the collection of A Gentleman, it has been speculated by the weekend, it’ll earn profit since it’s a small budget movie. It’s going to be quite a challenge though since Bareilly Ki Barfi and Toilet – Ek Prem Katha is still doing well at the box office. We had just stated the first week collection of BKB to stand at Rs 20.02 crore and TEPK at Rs 125.40 crore. However, considering how small budget movies are doing much better at the box office lately, we’re pretty certain that even BB would do well.
