After a rough start with preview shows on Wednesday and a partial release on Thursday, Top Gun: Maverick was able to gain traction on Saturday. On the other hand, the film has flopped on weekdays. So far, the film has barely made ₹15 crores*. A total of roughly 20 crores would have been ideal, but unlike numerous Hindi films that have had dismal box office results, the Tom Cruise blockbuster is at least doing something.
Even so, it isn't ideal & while being a big-budget affair, it's ultimately an aviation action film, a genre that doesn't attract as many viewers as, say, the Fast and Furious franchise. Top Gun Maverick day 5 box office collection numbers are here.
|Day 1 [1st Friday]||₹4.89 Cr|
|Day 2 [1st Saturday]||₹3.78 Cr|
|Day 3 [1st Sunday]||₹3.75 Cr|
|Day 4 [1st Monday]||₹1.46 Cr|
|Day 5 [1st Tuesday]||₹1.08 Cr (expected)|
|Total||₹15 Cr (expected)|
The picture now needs to make well to excellent business in the days ahead in order to keep its screens. After all, Prithviraj, Major, and Vikram are all scheduled to perform on Friday. Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 is also not going away anytime soon. In the middle of all, Top Gun: Maverick has its work cut out for it to carve out a niche for itself among the competition.
