Marjaavaan box office collection: Sidharth Malhotra, Tara Sutaria’s romantic thriller earns Rs 32.18 cr in five days

Milap Zaveri’s directorial Marjaavaan has been performing consistently at the domestic box office. The film has earned Rs 32.18 crore within five days of its release. Marjaavaan opened to Rs Rs 7.03 crore on Friday, earned Rs 7.21 crore on Saturday and witnessed a jump on Sunday (17 November) with Rs 10.18 crore.

There was a noticeable decline over the weekdays with the film raking in Rs 4.15 crore on Monday and Rs 3.61 crore on Tuesday (19 November). Trade analysts predict that the film, starring Sidharth Malhotra and Tara Sutaria, will cross Rs 38 crore this week. According to a Box Office India report, the film fared the best in Uttar Pradesh, Bihar and central circuits.

Malhotra stars as the lead in the romantic thriller, who falls in love Sutaria, a mute girl. This relationship causes a rift between him and his mentor Riteish Deshmukh, a local don. Marjaavaan reunites the two actors onscreen after 2014’s Ek Villain, directed by Mohit Suri.

The film draws inspiration from 1970s Bollywood films, packed with high-octane fights and dramatic sequences. Milap Zaveri (Mastizaade, Satyameva Jayate) has written and helmed the feature.

Marjaavaan has received a mixed response from the audience and critics. In her review for Firstpost, Anna Vetticad wrote, “Marjaavaan is so hackneyed that even the usually restrained Malhotra is driven to intermittent over-acting during its two-hours-plus running time. Deshmukh hams his way through playing Vishnu. Ms Sutaria is bland.”

Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior trailer — Ajay Devgn’s period drama sees the actor as a valiant Maratha warrior

 

The makers of Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior have launched the film’s trailer. Featuring Ajay Devgn as the valiant Maratha warrior Subedar Tanhaji Malusare, the film charts the heroic character’s journey through the Battle of Sinhagad in 1670 AD. Malusare, battled alongside Chatrapathi Shivaji Maharaj and was the Maratha commander.

The trailer begins with the tussle between the Maratha empire and the Mughal throne for Kondhana, (probably somewhere in Southern India). When the Marathas contemplate who to send for the acquisition of the state/province, only one name comes forward — that of Malusare. Devgn enters the frame, with aplomb, and fluent Marathi. Saif Ali Khan, who plays the role of an antagonist in Tanhaji: The Unsung Hero, is shown as a formidable swordsman. The two are shown as deadly rivals of each other, preparing the ultimate face-off.

This film will mark their fourth collaborative project, after LOC Kargil (2003), Milan Luthria’s Kachche Dhaage (1999), and Vishal Bharadwaj’s Omkara (2006).

The film will see Kajol reunite with Ajay onscreen almost after a decade, where she will essay the role of Tanhaji’s wife. The last time the couple was seen together on the silver screen was in 2008 for Ajay’s home production, U Me Aur Hum.

The film also stars Sharad Kelkar, Jagapathi Babu, Devdutta Nage, Pankaj Tripathi, Neha Sharma, Ajinkya Deo, Kailash Waghmare, Hardik Sangani, Luke Kenny, and Vipul Gupta.

Ajay is currently shooting for Abhishek Sharma’s Maidaan, and also has a cameo in Akshay Kumar and Rohit Shetty’s Sooryavanshi. He is also gearing up for the release of Abhishek Dudhaiya’s Bhuj: The Pride Of India.

Directed by Om Raut, Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior is scheduled to hit theatres on 10 January, 2020.
