Dunki Box Office Collection Day 1

Dunki opened its doors on December 21st, 2023, amidst much anticipation. While it managed a respectable ₹29.2 crore on day 1 (according to Sacnilk), which falls within the average opening range for a Khan-Hirani collaboration, it fell short of the sky-high expectations set by Pathaan’s explosive ₹57 crore debut. Critics pointed to the presence of Prabhas’ Salaar, released a day later, as a potential factor in splitting the audience. Additionally, some initial reviews hinted at a slower pace and a more grounded narrative compared to Pathaan’s action-packed extravaganza, possibly leading to some audience reservations.

Unfortunately, the initial spark couldn’t be sustained. Day 2 witnessed a significant drop, with collections dipping to ₹20.12 crore. Day 3 showed a slight recovery with ₹25.61 crore, but not enough to dispel the growing concerns about the film’s trajectory. Industry experts attributed this decline to word-of-mouth not being overwhelmingly positive, coupled with competition from Salaar, which continued to perform steadily.

Dunki Box Office Collection Day 4

As of December 25th, Day 4 estimates suggest a collection of around ₹24.5 crore in India, bringing the total to approximately ₹108 crore. Worldwide, the estimated total stands at ₹215 crore. These figures are certainly not dismal, but they fall short of what one expects from a Shah Rukh Khan-Rajkumar Hirani film. The budget estimations hover around ₹150-200 crore, making profitability a tightrope walk for Dunki.

Hit or Flop? The Jury is Still Out

While it’s still too early to definitively declare Dunki a hit or flop, the signs are not particularly encouraging. The collections are below expectations, word-of-mouth is mixed, and the competition is strong. However, the film still has time to find its footing, particularly in overseas markets where Shah Rukh Khan enjoys immense popularity. Additionally, positive reviews praising the film’s emotional core and Hirani’s signature touch could potentially turn the tide.

Ultimately, Dunki’s fate hangs in the balance. Whether it rises like a phoenix or fizzles out remains to be seen. Stay tuned as we continue to track the film’s performance and deliver the final verdict in the coming weeks.
