The film is already on a downspiral...
A Flying Jatt is Tiger Shroff's third film to hit the theatres and it was expected to take off the same way as Heropanti and Baaghi did. Despite all the jokes and memes on him, his debut had a good turnout which made him box office's favourite young turk. Even Baaghi fared better than Shah Rukh Khan's Fan this year. Clearly, there was a lot of interest in his third film which was supposed to make him bigger at the box office, but the film hasn't managed to get the required numbers. On its first Monday, the film has earned only 2.50 cr to bring its total to 31. 95 cr.

Taran Adarsh, Trade Analyst, shared the numbers on his Twitter account saying, "#AFlyingJatt Thu 7.10 cr, Fri 6 cr, Sat 7.35 cr, Sun 9 cr, Mon 2.50 cr. Total: ₹ 31.95 cr. India biz." You can see how the first Monday figures are very disappointing. From a 9 crore Sunday, the film has come down to 2. 50 cr on its first Monday, making it evident that the audience hasn't taken to the film the way they should have. Tiger's superhero turn seems to have fallen flat. People might have not liked the way the film has been presented although trade was hopeful that the target group it was aiming at, the kids, would warm up to it eventually. But guess even they didn't find it as entertaining.
Reviews weren't glorious either. While many applauded Tiger but trashed the film, others just wrote it off. Word of mouth too wasn't as strong. Tiger and Jacqueline's negligent to no chemistry affected the film as well while the action wasn't a notch above Baaghi.

We already revealed to you that it is one Tiger Shroff film which is expensive than his previous ones. It was Trade Analyst and Editor of Super Cinema who revealed this trivia regarding the film to us. He infromed, “I am hearing the budget of the film is 40+ cr. It’s an expensive film. Heropanti was in the range of around 25- 30 crore while Baaghi was slightly higher. This obviously has the action and VFX, the cost is higher here. It is the most expensive Tiger Shroff movie as of now.”
It has to at least stay steady at the box office to make some good gains at the end of first week which looks a bit tough. After all, these days if a film doesn't post a good opening weekend total, it becomes difficult for it continue a good run. In fact, even after a solid first weekend, a film tanks, say for example Fan which had an over 50 crore weekend but still faltered miserably.
