Tubelight Box Office Collection Day 7: Salman Khan's Film Scrapes Past 100 Crore But It's Been 'Rejected'

New Delhi: 

Highlights

  1. Salman's Tubelight collected exactly Rs 106.86 cr in seven days
  2. Bajrangi Bhaijaan and Kick performed better in the same time
  3. Tubelight has been 'rejected,' says a trade analyst
Salman Khan's Tubelight flickered past the 100-crore benchmark after a week of its release, reported trade analyst Taran Adarash. It's probably not the best news you've heard today. Tubelight, which released last Friday, has been 'rejected,' says Taran Adarsh as Tubelight's collection dwindled after the Eid holiday. Tubelight collected Rs 106.86 cr in seven days, which is significantly less for a Salman Khan-film. Both Kick (2014) and Bajrangi Bhaijaan (2015) collected above Rs 150 crore in a week's time while last year's Sultan pocketed a whopping Rs 229 crore in nine days. Here are the collection figures of Salman Khan's Tubelight as of June 29.
 
 
 
 

The Kabir Khan-directed Tubelight aimed to tap audience who loved Salman and Kabir's 2015 film Bajrangi Bhaijaan but critics and movie-goers panned Tubelight as a ditch attempt to cash on the Bajrangi Bhaijaan formula.

In his review for NDTV, film critic Raja Sen, who gave the film one-star rating, wrote Tubelight "is possibly the worst performance of Salman's chequered career." He added that Tubelight "means well" but is "rendered unwatchable because of the leading man." Raja Sen gave Chinese actress Zhu Zhu and Itanagar-based Matin Rey Tangu a thumbs-up. "We get fine performances from bright Chinese actress Zhu Zhu and, most memorably, moon-faced child Matin Rey Tangu, who should have swiftly replaced the lead," he wrote.

Tubelight is set during the 1962 Indo-China war and it is the story of Laxman (Salman Khan), who is desperate to find his brother Bharat (Sohail Khan), who goes MIA during the war.

Tubelight also stars Mohammed Zeeshan Ayyub and late actor Om Puri. Tubelight is Salman's third collaboration with Kabir Khan after Bajrangi Bhaijaan and Ek Tha Tiger.
