It was a weak day for new Hindi releases on Saturday and collections showed little growth. Of course HIT – The first case is a better movie compared to Shabaash Mithualthough that too is strictly relative.
let’s talk about HIT – The first case First. In terms of content, the film is ahead of the pack and has also received better reviews. Not that they glow evenly, but the film isn’t dissed either. Unfortunately, it has that “OTT” feel to it, plus the eponymous southern original has received good response streaming in 2020. As a result, cadences were also affected. This was also reflected in a fairly fair growth the film saw as Rs on Saturday. 2.01 crores came in with the grand total standing at Rs. 3.36 million.
As for Shabaash Mithu, it fights big time. This was also the case with other sports films where the story is based on a female protagonist. Before the pandemic, even Kangana Ranauts panga fought and then Parineeti Chopras Saina also failed to find traction when it was released theatrically last year. In fact, Taapsee Pannu is entirely his Rashmi rocket also had a direct release in digital format and now Shabaash Mithu, which seemed the most promising of all, was able to rally to Rs. 0.70 crores* on Sunday, which equals Rs. 1.20 crores* in total.
*Estimates. Final numbers awaited
