For both the Diwali releases- Ram Setu and Thank God, things have turned out to be disappointing as their box office collections failed to meet expectations every single day. Considering it’s a Saturday, good jumps were expected, however, the results aren’t good. Let’s see how they fare on day 5.
If we take a look in the past, Diwali has been accommodating more than one big film. One of the best Diwali clashes for Bollywood has been Shah Rukh Khan’s Jab Tak Hai Jaan and Ajay Devgn’s Son Of Sardaar in 2012. Both films managed to hit 100 crores and emerged successful at the box office. Cut to now, after 10 years, the 100 crore mark is way outside the league for both films despite the star value.
Coming back to the point, both Ram Setu and Thank God have shown some sort of growth, but that’s totally underwhelming. First let’s talk about the Akshay Kumar starrer. The film is earning 7.20-7.80 crores on its day 5. Compared to yesterday’s 6.05 crores, it’s definitely a jump but at least a number above 8.50 or 9 crores should have come considering the word-of-mouth has been decent. So, it’s a big shocker for Akshay and the team.
Now coming to Ajay Devgn and Sidharth Malhotra’s film, Thank God is earning anywhere between 3.70-4 crores at the box office on day 5. It’s literally poor performance as there’s negligible growth when compared to Friday’s 3.30 crores.
Tomorrow i.e. on Sunday, it’s very crucial day for Ram Setu as the film needs to hit the 10 crore mark anyhow to survive from Monday onwards. For Thank God, it’s already game over and the film will definitely go downhill. Looking at the current situation, both the films earning 100 crores combined would be something to celebrate as a feat as the Diwali has been a total disappointment for the box office.
Speaking about the 5-day collection, Ram Setu stands between 48.65-49.25 crores. Thanks God stands between 25.25-25.55 crores.
