Sidharth Malhotra and Riteish Deshmukh starrer Marjaavaan, which released this Friday, saw a jump on Sunday, as per trade analyst Taran Adarsh. The film made Rs 10.18 crores on Sunday, taking its first weekend total to Rs 24.42 crore, he tweeted to say.

Talking about the three-day numbers, Taran wrote on Twitter, “#Marjaavaan jumps on Day 3... Healthy weekend... Finds patronage from mass markets... Large chunk of biz from single screens... Multiplexes of Tier-2 and Tier-3 cities better... Mon biz is decider... Fri 7.03 cr, Sat 7.21 cr, Sun 10.18 cr. Total: ₹ 24.42 cr. #India biz.”


Earlier, on Friday and Saturday, the film had maintained a steady growth. Taran, tweeting the day 2 figures, had said that the film had been doing good business in the mass circuits.

He wrote, “Marjaavaan maintains strong occupancy in mass belt/single screens on Day 2... Metros/multiplexes - average on Day 1 - remain in the same range... Biz should grow on Day 3... Eyes ₹ 22 cr [+/-] weekend... Fri 7.03 cr, Sat 7.21 cr. Total: Rs 14.24 cr. India biz.”

Marjaavaan was, however, panned universally by critics. The Hindustan Times review of the read, “Marjaavaan belongs to the 80s. We saw its clones and the clones of its clones back in the day and suffered for it. With the 90s new wave, we had hoped that the decade and its particular brand of cinema will forever rest in peace. Anil Kapoor did a few films like this, as did Sunny Deol and Jackie Shroff. It seems now, almost three decades later, it is Sidharth Malhotra’s turn.”

Releasing on the same day, Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Athiya Shetty’s Motichoor Chaknachoor, also did modest business. According to a report in NDTV, the film had made Rs 9.0 crore over Friday and Saturday. The film has been made at an estimated budget of Rs 20 crore.
