Mission Mangal is having a dream run at the box office. After 2.0, this Akshay Kumar starrer has become the second fastest film to reach the Rs 150 cr benchmark.

Mission Mangal collected Rs 128.16 cr in its first week, in its second weekend, the film grossed Rs 36.45 cr, a good number since Janmashtami holiday was an advantage for its business. The total tally now stands at Rs 164.61 cr.

Film critic and trade analyst Taran Adarsh shared the film’s business on social media.

Mission Mangal has set and broken new records at the box office. The film crossed Rs 50 cr benchmark in just 3 days, Rs 100 cr in 5 days, Rs 150 cr in 11 days. For a film that has no action or tropes of a typical masala entertainer, it’s  numbers are laudable.

The film has performed well in not just multiplexes but continues to maintain its stronghold in single screens and theatres across Tier-2 cities and mass circuits.

As of now, Mission Mangal has become the fourth highest grossing film of 2019. About how long will it run its magic in theatres and how much more business it will bring, only time can tell.

On the other hand, John Abraham starrer Batla House which also released alongside Mission Mangal on 15 August is also doing great business at the box office.

The film has collected a total of Rs 83.78 cr in its first week and second weekend run at the box office. Based on true-life events, the September 2008 Batla House encounter in Jamia Nagar Delhi, the Nikkhil Advani directorial has been receiving praise from audiences which is reflecting in its business.

In its first week, Batla House earned Rs. 65.84 cr and its second weekend Rs. 17.94 cr.

Mission Mangal and Batla House, both have benefited from the Independence Day release holiday and the subsequent weekend alongwith the added advantage of Janmashtami.
