"Total Dhamaal puts up a winning total on Day #4 (Monday business Rs 9.85 crore). Mass pockets/single screens are exceptional... Metros/cineplexes are healthy... Eyes Rs 90 cr plus total in Week #1," he tweeted. The film's current box office total is Rs 72.25 crore.

Total Dhamaal released to lukewarm reviews on Friday but according to Taran Adarsh, "Families and children are patronising it big time." Film critic Saibal Chatterjee in his review for NDTV said that Total Dhamaal was a 'total dud' and he gave the film one star out of five. Taran Adarsh tweeted, "Total Dhamaal has an edge over other mass entertainers... Families/kids are patronising it big time... No wonder, mass circuits/single screens and metros and cineplexes in tier II cities are collectively putting up a strong total... Normal ticket rates (not hiked) are a plus."
He added: "There's no denying that national chains contribute to a big total but let's not overlook the contribution by mass pockets/single screens. Make movies that hold pan-India appeal, only then can we expect achche din for trade."

There's no denying that national chains [plexes in metros and beyond metros] contribute to a big total, but let's not overlook the contribution by mass pockets/single screens...
