Total Dhamaal has done very well on the opening day. As per the official figures, the film has collected 16.50 crores on day 1.
It is the second highest opening day of 2019 after Ranveer Singh starrer Gully Boy. Though that got the benefit of Valentines Day which boosted the business by 30-35%. Thus in real terms, Total Dhamaal has a better opening day. It has managed excellent numbers in mass circuits but was low in North India.
The film had an average trailer and the music also was not a hit. Still, it has managed a very good opening day. That is mainly due to the franchise value as both earlier films were big hits on TV. However, Total Dhamaal is the only which has opened well at the box office too.
Now the film needs to show an upward trend on Saturday and Sunday. It has chances to score as the masses have liked the film.
