Box Office Update: ‘Maalik’ scored well on the first weekend at the box office

The void of local content at the cinemas was filled by Ashir Azeem’s political thriller Maalik, as the film made its way to the big screens more than a month after the release of Bachaana last friday.

The film was received well by the critics prior to its release and it was expected to gather generally favorable reviews from the audience as well. And why should not it be, as it has Waar-like action and Chambaili-like patriotic fervor, both of the tried and trusted ingredients of successful films in Pakistan.

Maalik (Review): A victory for Ashir Azeem on this battlefield despite many misses

The film opened to its highest single day collection on Friday and earned more than 5 million PKR. However, this propitious start could not set a rising trend as the collections fell off next two days and took the three day collections to modest 1.43 crore gross.

Here is the day to day collections of Maalik on the first weekend:

  • Day 1 (Fri): 0.51 crore
  • Day 2 (Sat): 0.48 crore
  • Day 3 (Sun): 0.43 crore
  • Total: 1.43 crore

There is nothing to worry as the three days collections of the film are still considered quite ‘decent’ by the box office experts and the film is expected to complete first week with the same pace. The second week, however, is going to be tougher for the film as Shah Rukh Khan’s Fan, clearly a formidable rival at the box office, will open across the country.
