This week, Deepika Padukone and Vikrant Massey starrer Chhapaak saw a box-office clash with Ajay Devgn, Saif Ali Khan and Kajol starrer Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior. Chhapaak, directed by Meghna Gulzar, is based on the real-life story of acid attack survivor Laxmi Agarwal, while period drama Tanhaji is based on the life of Tanaji Malusare, the military leader of Shivaji, founder of the Maratha Empire. The Day 2 box-office collections for Chhapaak and Tanhaji: The Unsung warrior are out! Ajay Devgn’s Tanhaji maintains its strong run at the box-office, having collected 20.57 crore on day 2, while Deepika Padukone starrer rakes in 6.90 cr.
Sharing the numbers of Chhapaak, trade analyst Taran Adarsh wrote, “#Chhapaak witnesses an upward trend on Day 2, but the 2-day total is underwhelming... Decent at premium multiplexes, but unable to connect *and* collect beyond metros... Needs to cover lost ground on Day 3... Fri 4.77 cr, Sat 6.90 cr. Total: ₹ 11.67 cr. #India biz.” On the other hand, giving an overview of Tanhaji’s numbers, he wrote, “#Tanhaji roars on Day 2... Metros *and* mass belt, multiplexes *and* single screens, #Tanhaji is simply remarkable... #Maharashtra is record-smashing... Other circuits - decent on Day 1 - join the celebrations on Day 2... Fri 15.10 cr, Sat 20.57 cr. Total: ₹ 35.67 cr. #India biz.”
SpotboyE Editor Vickey Lalwani rated Chhapaak with 3.5 stars, and Tanhaji with 4 stars. For Deepika Padukone’s film, he wrote, “I have come out from the theatre bowled over by the second half and largely the climax and I will bring forth the grey areas soon. The long and short of Chhapaak is that it has several moments which are praiseworthy, but it should have been more engaging.” Giving a review of Tanhaji, he called Ajay Devgn’s performance in the film marvelous, and found Tanhaji completely engaging.
