With the success of ‘Spider-Man’ and ‘Pushpa’, box office experts predict happiness in the coming days

Because the recently released films in Indian theatres did well at the box office, trade analysts believe that audiences are returning to the theatres, and that things will soon return to normal after a nearly two-year hiatus at the box office.

It was a busy weekend at the Indian Box Office, with two tent-pole releases, one from Hollywood and the other from Tollywood, igniting the box office with an outpouring of enthusiasm at the ticket counter. ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home,’ starring Tom Holland, continued its strong weekend box office performance with a strong showing on Monday, bringing the film’s total box office collections to Rs 120.47 crores.

Spider Man And Pushpa

This weekend was the most profitable weekend for the Indian exhibition industry in over two years, with total gross figures for holdover and new releases totaling an estimated Rs. 260 crores. At the Indian Box Office, ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’ and ‘Pushpa’ reigned supreme, demonstrating that any and all theatres could withstand any setback, the most recent being the Covid-19 pandemic and India’s Over-The-Top medium boom.

On the other hand, the Tollywood blockbuster Pushpa did exceptionally well in its first three days, grossing around Rs. 120 crores. The Allu Arjun starrer, which has been released on 1400 screens, is a’mass’terpiece that is propelled by the lead actor’s magnetic presence and quirky traits as ‘Pushpa.’ The film, directed by Sukumar, follows Pushpa Raj, a coolie who rises through the ranks of the red sandalwood smuggling ring while making enemies. Allu Arjun’s first post-pandemic release has proven his Midas touch, grossing Rs 71 crores across languages and breaking the box office record set by Sooryavanshi.

The strong box office performances of these two films, as well as previous films like Ayushmann Khurrana’s ‘Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui’ and ‘Akhanda,’ added roughly Rs. 10 crore to the weekend tally, bringing the total to Rs. 260 crore.

Experts also believe that the box office results signal a shift in the tide, particularly after nearly two years of lull due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

“It’s all about getting the most bang for your buck.” Because it had big stars and was a big action film, ‘Sooryavanshi’ worked. The other films, on the other hand, did not fare much better. “It appears that things are about to change,” says trade analyst Atul Mohan. And if that isn’t enough, there are a slew of big films in the works. The Matrix Resurrections, starring Keanu Reeves and Carrie Ann Moss and starring Priyanka Chopra, will be released on Wednesday, while Kabir Khan’s highly anticipated film’ 83′ will be released on Friday. The film’s reviews have already begun to pour in, and the fact that the critics have given it a thumbs-up indicates that the box office will be happier in the near future.

“The public’s mood is shifting right now. They will go to the movies more if the films are good. This will have an impact on money generation, and you’ll start to see small, local businesses reopen that were previously closed due to the lockdown situation and other factors,” Mohan adds.
