Mary Kom has registered a decent 2nd Friday at box office as collected around 1.75-2 crore nett on day 8. Film although registered significant drop from Thursday that is mainly due to new releases in Finding Fanny and Creature 3D. Still collection is ok considering film should show strength on 2nd Saturday and 2nd Sunday at box office.
Mary Kom total collection after 8 days is approx 43+ crore nett. Film cut off mark is around 55 crore nett and it needs another 12 crore more to break even for distributors. Day 9 and 10 will definitely help them to reach near that mark.
Mary Kom performance could have been better than what now considering film had rocking start on opening Friday. But how many film will female star in lead role enjoy such opening in India. Take recent hit film examples like Kahaani, English Vinglish, Queen, Mardaani etc. The Dirty Picture took good opening but apart from Vidya Balan, it had another face value in Emraan Hashmi also. Film with female star only has to run on merit and definitely picture will be out after at least 21 days of running for the film. So, far film performance is satisfactory at least for us. Yes, it could have been better.
