Vidya Balan was on a roll the likes of which most actresses in Indian cinema have rarely seen. Not only was she part of a string of hits from Paa (2009) to Kahaani (2012), but half of those films ran purely on her shoulders, cementing her position as one of Bollywood’s greatest leading ladies. However, post Kahaani, a combination weak script choices and unfortunates extraneous factors resulted in Balan losing some of her sheen at the ticket window (with the slight exception of Bobby Jasoos) and created a dent in her star-power.
However, Tumhari Suluseems to have brought the actress right back on track as the film continues to hold well after a good weekend. Collecting Rs. 1.85 crore nett on Tuesday (day five), its total hitherto now stands at a promising Rs. 16.56 crore nett, and looks set to finish its first week in the 19-20 crore range. In fact, Tuesday’s numbers were slightly better than that of Monday’s which always augurs well for such small films.
|Day-Wise||Nett Collection (INR)|
|Day One (Friday)||2.87 crore|
|Day Two (Saturday)||4.61 crore|
|Day Three (Sunday)||5.39 crore|
|Day Four (Monday)||1.84 crore|
|Day Five (Tuesday)||1.85 crore|

Like most of her earlier solo successes, Tumhari Sulu, too, has been made on a limited budget with a controlled marketing campaign, and is running almost entirely on Vidya Balan‘s name and the strength of her overwhelming performance. Its low-cost economics should ensure that the film is a clean hit if it touches the 30-crore mark, which looks highly likely at this stage, especially with no major release in sight till 1st December.
