Special 26 is running successfully at the box office, as the film was rock-steady at the box office on Monday and Tuesday, after showing good growth in business in it’s first weekend.
Films with powerful scripts tend to do well over the long run, and given the appreciation that Special 26 is carrying, it makes for †a good comparison with Akshay Kumar’s last critically acclaimed success OMG! Oh My God.
OMG took a massive jump on it’s 5th day as it was a National holiday. Although Thursday is not a National Holiday, Special 26 too is likely to benefit from Valentine’s Day.
|Day||Special Chabbis||OMG! Oh My God|
|First Day (Friday)||5.7 crores||†3.8 crores|
|Second Day (Saturday)||†7.6 crores||†5.5 crores|
|Third Day (Sunday)||†9.8 crores||†7 crores|
|Weekend Total||†23.1 crores||†16.3 crores|
|4th Day (Monday)||†4 crores||†4.5 crores|
|5th Day (Tuesday)||†3.6 crores||†8 crores (Holiday)|
|Total Collections||†30.7 crores||†28.8 crores|
Currently, Special 26 is ahead by around 8%. But Oh My God simply took off after it’s first week, despite stiff competition from films like English Vinglish.
