MS Dhoni The Untold Story: Total Box Office Collections and Verdict

‘MS Dhoni The Untold Story’ has collected Rs 121.48 crore in two weeks at the domestic box office, making it the fourth highest grosser of the year – only below films like ‘Sultan’, ‘Airlift’ and ‘Rustom’.

The Sushant Singh Rajput starrer has two more open weeks at the box office, before the release of ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’ and ‘Shivaay’ during Diwali this year. While the ‘pre-diwali’ period has set in, MS Dhoni will continue to perform at lower levels. It could eventually challenge the lifetime totals of films Rustom (128 cr) and Airlift (129 cr).

It isn’t a very profitable film, as a huge chunk of the investment was spent on MS Dhoni and the visuals that were acquired from the cricket board. If a film like Mirzya had performed, MS Dhoni The Untold Story would’ve probably even struggled to recover all of its investment, but the 2 week clean run has helped the film attain ‘clean hit’ status.

The biopic is by far the highest grosser for both the actor (Sushant Singh Rajput) and the director (Neeraj Pandey).

  • Disaster performance of mirzya and two holidays for dusshera n muharram and open weeks with absolutely no competition r da main reasons for its gud run in da second week.still I feel it can cross airlift to become second highest grosser of d year.

  • I atleast thought of super hit verdict after seeing the weekend performance.
    I am unable to understand that despite being a very good movie plus no competition still failed to cross even 130cr.
    I think the real verdict is Semi Hit not hit. Indicine is becoming liberal.

  • I have already said that it will struggle after 1st weekend . The movie is not up to the mark. If mirzya has did well m.s dhoni : the untold story will have struggle for even average verdict.

  • @Indicine – A hit is a hit! Don’t really understand why is it difficult for you to appreciate it upright. Despite the movie being a hit, the article tone and feel is so negative. Not done! Had it been a Varun Dhawan film or another star who you guys are biased to, this article would be like a shining star! Disappointed! This is exactly the kind of article that creates unnecessary negativity about the star, the film, etc.

  • Sachin has most centuries, Khans have huge craze, Akshay Kumar has most disasters and KRK received most abuses. 4 different side of secular Bharat.

  • Somehow we can overcome national disasters,recession etc but it’s impossible to stop Akshay Kumar’s disasters.😂

  • only first half was good. rest everything disappointed. it was just an average movie. lucky they have got hit status and earned this much

  • looking at the first weekend collection, even I thought it would do 150-160 but still it is a Hit.
    Next year Akshay and Neeraj are going to get their biggest hit. Keep fingers crossed.

  • Yes it will go past Airlift .
    Lifetime collections will be around 131 crores.
    It was a good movie & deserves this collection.
    But the way this movie started I thought it would cross 175 crs.

  • neeraj pandey with sushant give 100cr neeraj pandey with akshay kumar still struggle to cross 100cr lul stardom of akki

  • Dangal will not cross MS Dhoni the untold story box office collections
    only Sultan HGOTY
    #True Salman Fans

  • 1st Half was worth 150 cr.. 2nd half totally ruined it .. 2nd half shud have been about his calmness,his planning,his controversial decisions and winning streaks… i cudnt sit through 2nd half even 1st time..

  • Indicine, the film will make 50 Crores more than your global star’s double role flop. Hope you appreciate the collections and change the tone of your article. It’s higher than any Varun film except Dilwale, in which case you should count PK as Sushant’s film too. Shame on your potrayal of negativity.

  • @Floppy..why u hate akshay so much??
    I mean u bash him all the time.any specific reason??
    But agreed sometimes ur comments are hilarious like the one

  • Wat a pathetically written article. seems like the writer was made 2 post the article at gun point. rofl. anyways who cares. public sab janti hai. ur harsh bhvr towards sushanth is now exposed in front of everyone

  • @damn thanks. I don’t hate Akshay flop kumar. It’s juts I don’t like him. He is a pathetic actor.

    By the way, I bet there are actors that you hate, right?! Let’s say Ajay and Salman Khan, why you hate them?🤔

  • It’s funny how @floppy contradicts his own logic.

    When someone has maximum number of hits/highest total collection of movies it is because of doing more movies.

    But more number of flops is not due to doing more movies as per his great logic.

    This is the great hypocrisy of Akki haters😂

  • Indicine
    Is that right, that Dhoni demanded 50 crore for this film….
    And how much BCCI received….
    Please reply…..

  • Indicine is saying the truth
    I complete agree with them
    I also agree this movie is a hit due to dhoni brand + neeraj pandey
    ssr has only 5% credit

    also emraan hashmi career is finished 1-2 yr then he is dead

  • There is high possibilities of having flops with multiple number of movies, 1994, 2007, 2012 and 2016 are 1 off, doesn’t come always.
