Malang, starring Aditya Roy Kapur and Disha Patani, earned INR 4 crore on Monday, the fourth day of its release. This brought the Mohit Suri film’s total earnings to INR 29 crore. The film had a decent start at the box office on Friday, raking in INR 6 crore. However, its collections dropped by around 40 percent on Monday, according to a Box Office India report. The thriller drama is expected to perform fairly well during the week and may earn INR 38-39 crore by the end of its first week.

This is the highest-opening weekend ever for an Aditya Roy Kapur film. Film trade analyst Taran Adarsh shared the first weekend figures of his solo films on Twitter, “#AdityaRoyKapur versus #AdityaRoyKapur… *Opening Weekend* biz…2013: #Aashiqui2 ₹ 20.50 cr 2014: #DaawatEIshq ₹ 13.6 cr 2016: #Fitoor ₹ 14.11 cr 2017: #OkJaanu ₹ 13.80 cr 2020: #Malang ₹ 25.36 cr Note: Solo hero films. Hence, #YJHD and #Kalank not included. #India biz.”

The film, which also stars Anil Kapoor and Kunal Kemmu, is clashing at the box office with Vidhu Vinod Chopra’s Shikara, which has received a poor response and has collected only INR 5 crore so far.

Despite the positive box office response, Malang has received mixed reviews from critics. Taran Adarsh gave the drama thriller 2 stars and called it ‘disappointing’, adding, “Mohit Suri misses the bus this time... #Malang works in patches, but its writing plays spoilsport, fails to grab your attention in entirety... Suspense doesn’t create the desired impact either.” Vinamra Mathur gave it 2.5 stars and wrote in Mid-Day, “This could have been a cracking thriller, alas, it isn’t,” and added, “Mohit Suri doesn't entirely succeed in extracting the juiciness of his premise and the idiosyncrasies of his characters.”
