Sridevi-starrer Mom is staring at a crushing defeat by the hands of Hollywood superhero film Spider-Man: Homecoming. The Tom Holland flick has garnered Rs 13 crore on its opening day against Mom’s collection of Rs 2.90 crore on Friday. Trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted the business figures of both the films.

On the other hand, Mom - that also features Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Akshaye Khanna in important roles - is slowing acquiring pace. It has also got mostly positive reviews and that has helped it in getting satisfactory footfall in the overseas market where it earned Rs 2.20 crore on its first day.

It will be interesting to see how Mom’s business shapes up against the roaring Spider-Man over the weekend.
