Box-Office Round Up: Thupparivaalan, Magalir Mattum Thrive; Slow Start For Simran


This week’s top releases are a potpourri of genres. Bramma’s Magalir Mattum on women empowerment opened to good reviews, while Thupparivaalan directed by Mysskin, a sort of Tamil version of Sherlock Holmes, managed to get the audience hooked. Hindi films Simran and Lucknow Central, though opened to mixed reviews, the lead actors — Kangana Ranaut and Farhan Akthar — were appreciated for their performances.


Thupparivaalan, starring Vishal and Anu Emmanuel, has opened to positive reviews. It’s been a while since Tamil cinema saw a detective thriller. Thupparivaalan got a thumbs up for its characterisations, engaging screenplay and unique background score.

According to IANS, Thupparivaalan has grossed over Rs 10 crores in its opening weekend in Tamil Nadu.

“In the first four days, the film grossed over Rs 10 crores in Tamil Nadu. Despite releasing on a Thursday, the film has struck gold at the box-office. The numbers steadily increased day-on-day and the overall talk has been highly positive,” trade analyst Trinath told IANS.

Though the film opened to mixed reviews, Kangana Ranaut took home all the accolades. Competing with Farhan Akthar’s Lucknow Central, Simran’s collection at the box office is slowly progressing and it is expected to pick up during the week. Trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted:

Lucknow Central

The film failed to impress the critics and the box-office. Though the film made money during the weekend, but the overall trend is not promising. 

#LucknowCentral is now dependent on weekdays biz for a decent total… Fri 2.04 cr, Sat 2.82 cr, Sun 3.56 cr. Total: ₹ 8.42 cr. India biz.
