Tanhaji - The Unsung Warrior has roared on Monday to collect in the 12-13 crore nett range. The film was fantastic in evening shows across the country which pushed the collections to a high level and the film also put Chhapaak in its place on Monday by having collections which were six times more.
The collections of Tanhaji - The Unsung Warrior on Monday may not be as high as some other films but its one of the highest collections ever when its normal rates on Monday. Most films which have high Monday numbers keep blockbuster rates or enhance the weekday rates which is not the case here. Good Newwz late last year had slightly higher collections on Monday but the footfalls for Tanhaji - The Unsung Warrior are far higher than Good Newwz. the evening collections in Delhi and Punjab were helped as its a holiday there tomorrow.
The drop came basically in mass centres of Maharashtra where it opened well on Friday and the rest of India has seen collections in the same range as day one even though multiplexes have lower ticket rates. It takes the film to around 72-73 crore nett and it now should get to 100 crore nett plus for the week at least as it will get benefit of the minor holidays over the next couple of days.
Chhapaak crashed on Monday with collections dropping more than 50% from Friday which itself was a low opening day. The film collected 2-2.25 crore nett on Monday and it could have been even worse but places like NCR and Chandigarh got benefit of the holiday on Tuesday. The film has been totally rejected by the public and will hardly benefit from the minor holidays over the next days and there will be more falls after this holiday period. The total collections after four days are 20 crore nett and the week will be 26-27 crore nett.
