Tanhaji - The Unsung Warrior has done well on day one at the box office as it has collected in the 16 crore nett range as per early estimates. The film has put in a solid perfomance on day one with Maharashtra having very good collections. North and East India are at decent levels while Rajasthan and CI are good. South India has not collected too well but there is the Rajnikant starrer Darbar there but still it will have a pretty good Nizam / Andhra number due to Marathawada..
The film did look like it may stay behind Chhapaak at some stations in the North like Chandigarh, Noida and Gurgaon but the film showed better growth than that film film and finished ahead in most of the cinemas in these cities. The film should show growth at most places on Saturday though Maharashtra may not as it has good numbers in all centres of the state.
Chhapaak seems to have faltered on day one itself the opening of the film was pretty decent and evening growth which is a norm for this type of film should have taken it to a 6 crore nett plus number but that growth did not just come and the film remained flat to collect around 4.75 crore nett on day one. The film could do better on Saturday but its unlikely to be huge growth going by the Friday trend. The film did look very dry and pretentious and the public seems to have seen that even the high end multiplexes audience.
