Mom Box Office Collection : Sridevi starrer movie sees growth in collections on Saturday
Written by Ravleen Khera

This friday’s release Mom starring Sridevi as the protagonist in the titular role opened to extremely positive reviews on July 7 but could not manage to open to a big number at the ticket windows on Day 1. Mom’s box office collection on friday i.e. Day 1 added up to 2.90 crore in the domestic circuits and $340,000 overseas which is 2.20 crore in Indian currency. In fact, the Day 1 seat occupancy was much better post noon in the evening and night shows, after a dull response to the morning shows. These figures are extremely underwhelming given the superior content and execution of this film. But as they say, it’s never over till it’s over. Given the positive word of mouth the film has received, news is coming in that Mom has witnessed superb growth in its business at all the major multiplex chains across the country. And to be rational, the content of the film is more suited for the multiplex audience than the single screen janta.

While official figures are yet to come in, the film definitely is in a much better position at the box office than Friday. Trade analyst and film critic Taran Adarsh took to his twitter account to share the details of the ‘solid jump’ in business the film witnessed at four of the major multiplex chains in the country.

Let’s take a look at his tweets on the box office collection of the film so far in two days:

Hollywood film, Spider-Man: Homecoming proved to be Mom’s major opponent at the domestic box office. The former has been receiving a tremendous response at the Indian box office as well as worldwide in addition to supremely positive critical reviews. Mom which is a medium budget film, released across 1350 screens nationwide and 456 screens in the overseas market.

The film has been produced by Sridevi’s producer husband Boney Kapoor and directed by Ravi Udyawar. Mom also stars Adnan Siddiqui, Sajal Ali, Akshaye Khanna and Nawazuddin Siddiqui in key roles.

Come back for more updates on Mom and its fate at the box office.
