Trade analyst Joginder Tuteja wrote on Twitter, “#TotalDhamaal was indeed ‘total dhamaal’ today. The film has collected in the range of 24-25 crore, which is huge. Family audiences, especially kids, have picked on this adventure comedy in a big way. A weekend of 61-62 crore has positioned the film really well for a major haul.”


With the collections, Total Dhamaal is now the highest opener in the first weekend of the year. Ranveer Singh, Alia Bhatt-starrer Gully Boy made Rs 51 crore in their first three days. The film, however, released on Thursday to capitalise on Valentine’s Day and its first weekend earnings were Rs 72.45 crore.
