The month of July was a roller coaster ride for the films this year. From Rajinikanth’s Kabali, John Abraham’s Dishoom to multi-starrer Great Grand Masti, films did really well and garnered mixed reactions from people across the country. July remained a sensational month for the films as far as box office collections are concerned. Rajinikanth’s Kabali broke the box office record with a grand opening. The movie collected over 200 crore in its first day. Salman’s Sultan too had a massive opening. Let’s take a look at the top five films that created lot of buzz in July.
Grand success of Kabali starring Rajinikanth:
The movie had a massive opening with a box office collection of Rs 211 crore in its opening day in India. It has broken all records in the Indian film industry. Kabali was released hardly 11 days ago and so far it has collected over Rs 650 crore overall. The counting is still on.
Salman Khan Starrer Sultan
The movie had a great opening as Salman’s fans were eagerly waiting for its release. Sultan also collected over 100 crore, in the initial days, thus entering into a 100 crore club. Apparently it outperformed Aamir Khan’s PK. However, the movie garnered mixed reactions. Its box office collection in India in a span of three weeks is over Rs 296 crore.
Madaari featuring Irrfan Khan
With mixed reactions from people across the country, Madaari did not really do well in India. The movie features multi-talented actor Irrfan Khan who received excellent reviews for his performance. Although, Madaari’s release clashed with Salman’s Sultan which did not work well for the movie. Overall, it had collected mere Rs 20.94 crore.
The box office collections of Great Grand Masti
The much awaited comedy flick Great Grand Masti was not well received at the Box Office (B.O). It barely collected Rs 13.52 crore in India and overall Rs 18.92 crore. The film featured actors Riteish Deshmukh, Aftab Shivdasini, Vivek Oberoi, Urvashi Rautela and Shraddha Das, while it was directed by Indra Kumar.
John Abraham starrer Dishoom
Dishoom hit theatres on 29 July. The movie features John Abraham and Varun Dhawan. It had a collection of over Rs 30 crore in the weekend in India and overall it collected Rs 64.47 crore. John Abraham received rave reviews for his performance in the movie.
