The film has simply created history with its total collection even beating the domestic collection of SRK starrer film Fan. The movie has emerged out as an all-time blockbuster in M Town. So far the Marathi movie has earned 89 crores and slowly and steadily reaching to the magic figure of 100. Sooner or later it will certainly going to enter into the hundred crore club thus becoming the only film in 2016 in Marathi cinema to make up this mark.
Whether it is a single screen or multiplex the film has proved itself to be a decent grocer over the box office. Though many of the film sin M Town have kept on pouring inside the screens yet it failed to surpass or supersede Sairat in many ways. Right from the critics to the audience, everyone seemed to be applauding the film and the way it has been made with novices kept in the main leads.

The entire state of Maharashtra has witnessed an overwhelming response particularly from the cities of Mumbai, Pune, Nagpur and Aurangabad, the response has been phenomenal.
