From murder mysteries to musicals and romantic thrillers, Bollywood filmmaker Mohit Suri has tried his hand at all and almost always succeeded. His last critically acclaimed project was Half Girlfriend which proved to be a success at the box office. As the director works his magic once again, his recently released film Malang has become the talk of the town. Having released just yesterday, the movie witnessed the third-best opening of the year for a Bollywood film after Ajay Devgn’s Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior and Street Dancer 3D, both of which collected INR15.10 crore and INR10.26 crore on their first days, respectively.

Malang stars Disha Patani and Aditya Roy Kapur in the lead roles. It also sees Anil Kapoor and Kunal Kemmu as supporting characters. The film earned INR6.71 crore on day one. Besides this, Malang has also become the biggest solo opening of Aditya’s career. Sharing the day-one collections of the film, film trade analyst Taran Adarsh wrote on Twitter, “Malang is decent on Day 1... Should’ve grossed higher given its genre... National multiplexes contribute 50%+ of Day 1 biz... Mass circuits low... Needs to show more than normal jump on Day 2, though biz in Delhi will be limited... Fri Rs 6.71 cr. India biz.”

Taran also drew parallels with Aditya’s earlier films and wrote, “AdityaRoyKapur versus #AdityaRoyKapur... *Day 1* biz...2013: Aashiqui2 Rs 6.25 cr. 2014: Daawat-E-Ishq Rs 3.72 cr. 2016: Fitoor Rs 3.61 cr. 2017: Ok Jaanu Rs 4.08 cr. 2020: Malang Rs 6.71 cr. Note Solo hero films only. Hence, YJHD and Kalank not included. India biz.” Earlier, trade analyst Girish Johar predicted, “It will mainly be attracting tier 1 and tier 2 cities. The trailer is very intriguing and has a restricted appeal to the audience, unlike other Mohit Suri films in the past. It will appeal to a certain kind of audience in the metro cities only. It is not an all-out masala entertainer or commercial film.”
