Sui Dhaaga – Made In India has started its box office journey on an impressive note. The film, starring Anushka Sharma and Varun Dhawan in the lead roles, has opened to satisfactory numbers. Film trade analyst Taran Adarsh has tweeted that Sui Dhaaga has earned Rs 8.30 crore on its first day.

He wrote, “#SuiDhaaga has an encouraging Day 1... Had an ordinary start in the morning shows, but gathered momentum as the day progressed... Film lost out on a big chunk of biz due to #AsiaCup2018 finals, but should recover lost ground on Day 2... Fri ₹ 8.30 cr [2500 screens]. India biz.”

It’s common for a major release’s business to pick up during the weekends these days, but the real test starts from Monday. Films like Manmarziyaan and Manto saw an upward trend during weekends, but even then there total business tally failed to register good numbers.

Pataakha, Vishal Bhardwaj’s film that released on the same day, is finding it even more difficult to sustain the momentum. The film has garnered Rs 90 lakh on its opening day. Adarsh tweeted, “#Pataakha Fri ₹ 90 lakhs [875 screens]. India biz... Had a lukewarm start at the start of Day 1 and should grow over the weekend... However, the growth has to be multi-fold since the starting point has been extremely low.”

Mani Ratnam’s Chekka Chivantha Vaanam has also opened to solid numbers and made Adarsh believe that Hindi films don’t have monopoly over the box office anymore.

Rajkummar Rao’s Stree has crosses Rs 123 crore and is still going strong.

Will Sui Dhaaga emerge as one of the bigger hits of the year in the longer run?
