Box Office: Mary Kom Delivers A Big Punch!
EntertainmentEntertainment1 min read

This year, we have seen some very interesting woman-oriented movies being released. This week solo release Priyanka Chopra starrer 'Mary Kom' tried its luck at the box office.

'Marm Kom' is a biopic; and even from the promos, we could safely make out that Priyanka has worked hard for her look and body. The movie has been directed by debutant director Omung Kumar and it is produced by Sanjay Leela Bhansali in association with Viacom 18 Motion Pictures.

The movie has been made with a budget of Rs 37 crore and managed to get 1,500 screens.

The Friday collections of the movie were promising as it managed to earn a total of Rs 8.5 crore. Over the weekend, it collected around Rs 8.8 crore on Saturday and Rs 11.05 crore on Sunday, taking its total weekend collection to Rs 28.27 crore.

It is noteworthy, that none of the other woman-oriented films in this year, namely Rani Mukerji starrer 'Mardaani' or Kangana Ranaut’s 'Queen' could manage such a positive opening. 'Mardaani' had garnered Rs 14.46 crore in its first weekend at the box office while 'Queen' had grossed Rs 10 crore in the same period of time.

'Mary Kom' is being appreciated by the junta and the critics, and hopefully the movie will continue to go strong over the week with this positive word of mouth. Another factor that is going in favour of 'Mary Kom' is that it has been declared tax free in some places in the country.

Meanwhile last week’s release 'Raja Natwarlal' failed to rule at the box office. In its first week, the movie had accumulated only Rs 25.88 crore (all figures are from Box Office Collection).
