Amid boycott trends, Vijay Deverakonda’s ‘Liger’ has done tremendous business on the first day at the box office. Ananya Pandey starrer film was waited for a long time. It was expected that the box office drought that has been longing for a hit film for a long time will end with this film. The earnings of ‘Liger’ are so tremendous that it has done much better business than both Aamir Khan’s ‘Lal Singh Chaddha’ and Akshay Kumar’s ‘Rakshabandhan’ combined with the opening day collections. On the very first day, Liger left behind the films of many superstars.
Advance booking of ‘Liger’ had predicted that people are eager to see Vijay Deverakonda’s punch. The songs of the film and the tremendous acting of Ramya made it even more interesting. The Puri Jagannadh action drama film has such an opening that it even surpassed the recent releases of Aamir Khan and Akshay Kumar. However, Liger is getting mixed reviews. Some viewers liked the film and some called it disappointing. Despite this, the film has got a tremendous opening.
According to the reports of Koimoi, the film grossed 33.12 crores on its opening day worldwide in all languages. Given the ever-increasing fan following of Vijay Deverakonda, the film has taken a thunderous start. It’s huge attainment that the movie was released on a weekday to gross a massive 33.12 crores on the first day. However, Liger has not collected anything special in the Hindi belt. It has earned only 2.50 crores in Hindi. Yet this figure is more than the 15th day earnings of Aamir’s ‘Lal Singh Chaddha’ and Akshay Kumar’s ‘Raksha Bandhan’.
As per trade analysts, the bookings are good for today as well. The four days long weekend and then the Ganesh Chaturthi holiday (Wednesday) is going to help the movie mint massive collections in its first week. Since there’s no big competition for Liger this week, there will be no stopping the movie.
In Bollywood, many movies have been flop one after the other. In such a situation, it is expected that ‘Ligar’ can do wonders at the box office with ‘RRR’ and ‘KGF 2’. By the way, bad reviews of the film will be increasing the tension of the makers. With Saturday and Sunday left, it will be interesting to see how long Liger can maintain its opening day lead.
