Hindi Medium has emerged a true sleeper HIT as it will soon hit 50 crore nett but has never led the box office in any week since its release and is unlikely to do so in any of the weeks coming where it remains in the theaters.
It is very rare for a film to emerge a hit when the first week and second week collections are behind not one but two other films in todays day and age of limited box office runs. The film has shown a similar pattern in the first three weeks as below.
Week One - Had third highest collections of the week behind Half Girlfriend and Bahubali 2 - The Conclusion
Week Two - Again third highest after Sachin - A Billion Dreams and Pirates Of The Carribean - Salazars Revenge. Beat both films (Half Girlfriend and Bahubali 2 - The Conclusion) who were ahead in week one.
Week Three - Second highest after Wonder Woman. Beat both films (Sachin - A Billion Dreams and Pirates Of The Carribean - Salazars Revenge) who were ahead in week two.
Week Four - Same pattern as likes of Raabta and Mummy will be ahead. But it may go ahead of Wonder Woman which was better in week three.
The film is a rare sleeper hit which has succeeded despite never leading the box office race.
