One of the two movies released this Friday includes the much talked about film called Lipstick Under My Burkha. The film enjoys a decent buzz in the media, all thanks to the controversies that surrounds the film along with its key actors Konkona Sen Sharma, Ratna Pathak Shah, Plabita Borthakur and Aahana Kumra who played different key roles in it. Also, the film has managed to impress all the critics despite the unconventional subject showcased in much of the bold fashion. In fact, the buzz for the film has been witnessed ever since the trailer of the movie was released, which triggered the debate in the media.
However, checking the core of the film it happens to be niche based film, which has therefore attracted a limited crowd in the theatres. Hence if you check the occupancy report of the film, you will certainly not be impressed by the same. The movie managed to get only 1.1 on the first day while it bagged 1.85 crore on the second day. With the third day being Sunday, the film managed to get some amount of surge adding up the collection to some extent. The collection on the third day tolled to around 3.5 crore. So, the first weekend box office collection for 6.45 for the film Lipstick under my Burkha.
Also, the other hurdle for the film is the movie released on the first day called Munna Michael, which has Tiger Shroff and Nawazuddin Siddiqui that has managed to come along with a decent figure over the box office. Though the film has all the elements that can help things to do better over the box office but with niche based film it cannot attract the masses for the same. Also, if you look at this film in a different way, it has managed to get a decent figure for sure. The film’s budget is merely 6 crore and with current 1st weekend box office collection, the movie is already a winner.
