The crime thriller starring Aditya Roy Kapur, Mrunal Thakur and Ronit Roy in pivotal roles couldn’t attract the audience to the theatre. The movie received mixed reviews from critics and opened to muted numbers at the ticket counters. Despite not facing any major clash with other Bollywood films at the box office, Gumraah was hardly able to churn money on the first day of release. Gumraah is the Hindi remake of the 2019 Tamil hit Thadam.

GUMRAAH DAY 1 BOX OFFICE COLLECTION

According to trade analyst Taran Adarsh, Gumraah earned Rs 1.10 crore on Friday. It needs a miraculous turnaround to salvage the show. It had 11.25% occupancy in the Hindi-speaking market. The film faced competition from the last week’s releases, Nani’s Dasara and Ajay Devgn’s Bholaa, which have been holding up well at the box office. On its ninth day, Bholaa earned an estimated Rs 3 cr and Dasara did an estimated business of Rs 2.25 cr. The Day 1 collection of Gumraah can be clearly marked as a big disappointment.

Gumraah is the third Hindi adaptation of a South Indian film this year. Earlier, Kartik Aaryan’s Shehzada, a remake of the Telugu film Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo and Akshay s Selfiee, a remake of the Malayalam film Driving License, failed to perform well at the box office and ended its run with a total of just Rs 32.20 cr and Rs 16.85 cr respectively. None of the movies performed well at the theatres.
