7.73 crores on the second Saturday after depositing Rs. 83 It remained stable on the second Sunday by bringing in Rs. 7.31 crores. Had the cinemas in Delhi and Gurgaon not been closed the film could have earned more as these are the regions where it was actually collecting the best. Had it not been so, at least two crore more would have come in both the days.
It only improves the collections on Saturday and Sunday as the numbers would have been much better if the theaters were not closed and there were no night restrictions. Till now Reliance Entertainment, Sajid Nadiadwala, Vishnu Induri, Deepika Padukone, Phantom Films Production have earned Rs. 91.27 crores and though the overall score is far from what would have brought it closer to the recovery mark, at least the distance is getting shorter.
As far as the box office is concerned, the Kabir Khan directorial will be an under-achiever commercially. However, in no way has its content been ruled out as, say, A. happened with Thugs of Hindostan, That film had taken an opening of more than crores of rupees. 50 crores and then struggled to triple it in his lifetime. In the case of 83, the bigger issue is with the very early collection and that is why it has not been able to meet its end despite being better orally, at least in urban centres.
Note: All collections according to production and distribution sources
