Mumbai, Oct 19 (): Akshay Kumar’s Boss had a great opening in the box office and the theatres were flooded by the audience on the release day. Released on October 16 as a Bakridh release, the movie in three days has raked in 28 crore at the domestic box office.
Trade analyst and film critic Taran Adarsh tweeted, “#Boss Wed Rs 14 cr to Rs 14.5 cr. #Boss *revised* Thu Rs 8 cr. #Boss Fri Rs 6 cr”.
Directed by Anthony D’Souza, the masala entertainer “Boss”, starring Akshay Kumar, has made a mark at the box office with record opening collections. The movie was a mid-week release and it collected around 14.5 crore on the opening day.
Boss did an unexpected collection and turned out to be higher than the opening day collections of Akshay’s last film “Once Upon A Time in Mumbaai Dobaara”. By collecting Rs 14.5 crore, “Boss” has become the fourth highest opener of 2013 after “Chennai Express”, “Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani” and “Race 2″.
The action-packed entertainer has raked in Rs 8 crore on Thursday and Rs 6 crore on Friday from Indian markets, taking its three-day total to Rs 28.5 crore, trade analyst Taran Adarsh said. Anthony D’Souza’s directorial film is performing better than last big Bollywood release “Besharam”.
The Akshay Kumar starrer was released in more than 3,000 screens and has fared better in single screens compared to multiplexes. The movie opened well in north Indian circuits including Rajasthan, CI, CP, Uttar Pradesh and Bihar. In some circuits, the film registered better occupancy than Ranbir Kapoor’s “Besharam”.
Critics say ‘Boss’ is a mindless and illogical masala movie that entertains the audience with its comical punch lines. Boss is expected to rake in good figures on its first weekend and if the Saturday collection sees a jump, there is a good probability that the film might end up raking in a good amount at the box office.
