Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior & Chhapaak Day 1 Collections. Tanhaji Beats Chhapaak With Big Margin

This week is certainly a great one for the Hindi movie lovers as two big movies hit the theatres on Friday. The first one is “Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior” that has some really big names of the industry like Ajay Devgn, Kajol, Saif Ali Khan and others while the other is “Chhapaak” starring Deepika Padukone in the lead role. DeePee has not only acted in the flick but she has also started her career as a producer from this film only.

As far as “Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior” is concerned, the movie is getting great response all over India, especially in Maharashtra and nearby states. The first day collections of the flick have been superb as it has minted whopping Rs 15.10 crore on Friday and experts are pretty sure that the amount will increase further in the weekend.

Unfortunately, Deepika’s “Chhapaak” did not get the start that was expected from it and its first day earnings were below the expectations. The movie collected Rs 4.77 crore on the box-office on Friday and the collections have to grow for getting a respectable weekend total.

Day 1 collections:

Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior – Rs 15.10 crore

Chhapaak – Rs 4.77 crore

Ajay Devgn starrer is a historical war drama in which the “Golmaal” actor has portrayed the character of Tanhaji Malusare, a Maratha military leader who served during the regime of the great ruler Chatrapati Shivaji. This movie is based on the battle of Sinhagad in which Tanhaji with his forces fought against Udaybhan Singh Rathod, a Rajput who served the Mughal ruler Aurangzeb.

The character of Udaybhan is being played by Saif Ali Khan whereas Kajol is portraying Tanhaji’s wife Savitri Malusare. The actors are being applauded for their superb performances and watching the film in 2D and 3D format is certainly increasing the enjoyment of viewers.

On the other hand, Deepika Padukone starrer “Chhapaak” is based on the story of Laxmi Agarwal, an acid attack survivor. In simple words, it is a reality check for people of the society and is an attempt to make them aware about the plight of acid attack survivors. The flick shows the suffering and struggles of a victim and what should be done to stop such incidents. Actor Vikrant Massey has also played an important role in the movie.

Well, if there is a difference of earnings between both the movies, there is also the difference in their budgets. While the budget of “Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior” is said to be Rs 150 crore, Chhapaak’s budget must be around Rs 35-40 crore.

Which one is your pick for the weekend?
