"This John Abraham starrer has made a mark at the BO. On the opening day, the film saw a collection of Rs 4.82 crore. The slow pace of collection at the box office is attributed largely to the lack of promotions. Diana Penty is the female lead alongside John Abraham. However, the film made steady gains day after day, week after week and now it has been dubbed as a 'Hit'," Zee Business declared.
The news agency also reported that the numbers are good because it survived the onslaught of the IPL matches. This is despite the fact that limited promotions and IPL semi-final hit the business of Parmanu, which was a point noted by trade analyst Taran Adarsh in his Twitter post. However, the film grossed Rs. 35.41 crore on Week 1, Rs. 16.42 crore in the second week, Rs. 7.03 crore in the third week, 3.28 crore in the fourth week and Rs. 1.54 crore in the fifth weekend, grossing over 63 crore," reported Zee Business.
Taran Adarsh also concurred the fact that the John Abraham starrer is a hit.
