Mubarakan failed to match trade expectations by earning only 5.25 crores on its first day at the Indian box office. However, it showed some growth on its second day. The film is carrying mixed to positive word-of-mouth. The movie earned 7.38 crores on its second day to take its total two days collection to 12.63 crores.
Girish Johar, a famous trade analyst speculated the reasons behind the low box office collections of the film. He said:
“The music of the film wasn’t that popular as was expected. The audience had huge expectations from the film. Also, the audience wasn’t excited for the film. Makers also failed to promote the film in the right way. The exact fun element of the film couldn’t come out.”
He also added:
“Since it’s a family film, Mubarakan should see a jump in collections on Saturday and Sunday. There is also a dearth of content for last few weeks. So, the audience won’t mind seeing a fun, entertaining film. I am expecting around 20 percent jump in figures on the second day. The film should ideally collect Rs 25 crores. But am expecting it to collect around Rs 20 crores. The film has only seven days to earn maximum amount at the box office as it will face Shah Rukh Khan’s Jab Harry Met Sejal next week.”
Mubarakan features Arjun Kapoor, Anil Kapoor, Ileana D’Cruz and Athiya Shetty in the lead roles. The story of the film revolves around two twin characters who seek help from their uncle regarding averting their marriages because of the existence of their initial girlfriends. All the events lead to a funny turn ultimately creating a string of hilarious events. You can read the review of the full film here.
