Chashme Baddoor box office report: David Dhawan’s remake earns Rs 18.74 crores in the opening weekend

David Dhawan’s remake of the 1981 classic comedy has not only won brownie points from the critics, but also managed to make impressive moolah in the first three days of its release

David Dhawan is back and how! The veteran filmmaker has proved once again that he has it in him to entertain the audiences, especially the youth even today. And he’s laughing all the way to the bank! Though the Ali Zafar-Siddharth-Divyendu Sharma starrer Chashme Baddoor was promoted well, it was quite difficult to predict how the movie would perform at the box office, considering the original Chashme Buddoor released on the same day and the ongoing IPL 6 craze too could’ve been detrimental to the film’s growth. But nothing of that sort happened – the film opened to positive response on the first day and the business witnessed an upward trend from Friday evening onwards.

Made at a budget of Rs 17 crores, the comedy flick produced by Viacom 18 Motion Pictures collected Rs 4.86 crores on Friday, Rs 5.76 crores on Saturday and Rs 8.12 crores on Sunday. Leading exhibitor-distributor, Akshaye Rathi feels, “David Dhawan’s comedy flick has become the surprise of the season! For the starcast it has, the film has outperformed the (fairly big) expectations that the industry had from it by making about Rs 18.74 crores over the weekend. Besides, its old school style of comedy is being appreciated unanimously across multiplexes and single screens by the youth and families alike at a pan-India level, which will ensure that it turns out to be a lambi race ka ghoda and has a glorious run over the next couple of weeks!”

With no major movies releasing in the coming weeks and positive word of mouth, Chashme Baddoor is expected to rake in decent moolah at the box office. Watch this space for more updates!
