Comparison between two masala films, both remakes, that didn’t fare too well at the box office. The business generated by the two films is closer than you’d think, because Boss benefitted from a holiday, while Himmatwala released on a normal Friday just before the Indian Premiere League.
The response to Himmatwala was negative, but the film sustained well at single-screens. On the other hand, Boss opened very well at single-screens but couldn’t sustain in the long run.
Himmatwala finished with lifetime business of around 48 crore, while Boss could go on to collect around 55 crore net. Day-wise comparison below.
