It was a good month for Bollywood as medium budgeted films like Ayushmann Khurrana starrer Article 15 and Kangana Ranaut and Rajkummar Rao Judgementall Hai Kya wooed the multiplex junta while Hrithik Roshan made a solid comeback after 2 years with Super 30.
Article 15 – 28th June
Directed by Anubhav Sinha, Ayushmann Khurrana’s Article 15 has impressed the audience with its first teaser, catchy trailer though the songs have not been quite popular. Based on true incident, Ayushmann Khurrana repeated the successes of Article 15 with 2018 ‘s hit films – Badhaai Ho and Andhadhun.
Article 15 got a positive feedback from both audience and critics with solid reviews which helped it perform at the urban multiplexes as Kabir Singh was dominating the single screens. The film opened to a decent response but picked up the steam later and showed strong support on the upcoming days. The crime-drama has collected Rs 61 crore (approx and still running) against a budget of Rs 28 crore.
Super 30 – 12th July
Directed by Vikas Bahl, Super 30 is a biopic based on the life of mathematician Anand Kumar and his educational program Super 30. The role of Anand Kumar is played by Hrithik Roshan, who is coming back to silver screen after 2 years (his last film was Kaabil when it clashed with Raees in 2017).
Thanks to the wonderful reviews, Super 30 had a wonderful first week with Rs 75.85 crore. The student-drama received tax-free status in most of states in India and continued to win hearts of the audience in the second and third week with Rs 37.86 crore and Rs 17.94 crore respectively. As of yesterday, Super 30 scored Rs 96 lakhs summing up the total to Rs 132.61 crore and will be surpassing the lifetime collections of Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt starrer Gully Boy, which collected Rs Rs 134.42 crore to become the 5th highest grossing film of 2019. The budget of Super 30 is Rs 115 crore.
Judgementall Hai Kya Vs Arjun Patiala – 26th July
Following week, we saw the clash of Judgementall Hai Kya and Arjun Patiala. While the Kangana Ranaut and Rajkummar Rao starrer Judgementall Hai Kya showed a good hold on its first week at the box office, collecting Rs 33.02 crore after 8 days, Arjun Patiala has been rejected by the audience as the comedy drama collected Rs 8 crore inspite of starring the popular actors like Dilijit Dosanjh and Kirti Sanon and should be wrapping up by this week.
Two Hollywood films scored well at the domestic box office – Spiderman-Far From Home and The Lion King, cementing their status at the ticket window.
