Soorma Box Office Collection: Sandeep Singh is an unsung hero of India hockey, whose inspirational story is known only to a few. Soorma brings across the journey of his comeback to the national team. On its opening day, the movie opens up to a decent response with Rs 3.25 crore.
Soorma is an intriguing story of how Love pushes Sandeep towards Hockey and how when he was just about to win the world with his Hockey skills, a stray bullet hit him while traveling in Shatabdi Express, paralyzing him waist below. The Hockey Legend made a comeback to the Indian Hockey team after two years, armed by his sheer will to fight against all odds.

The initial response towards the movie was quite low, but it gained momentum as the day progressed. With 3.25 Crore from day 1, the biographical sports drama haven’t managed to score big on the ticket window.
Though with a word of mouth that the movie is receiving, Soorma might just gain momentum over the weekend. Movie Critic and Trade Analyst Taran Adarsh shared the stats on his official Twitter Id.
After a slow start in morning shows [North India opening was good due to Diljit Dosanjh’s stardom], #Soorma gathered momentum from evening onwards… Is looking at substantial growth on Sat and Sun thanks to strong word of mouth… Fri ₹ 3.25 cr. India biz.

Though Soorma has received a good response in Punjab and other northern circuits, it faced a tough competition from the superhero movie Ant-Man and The Wasp that released yesterday as well.
The number does not speak much about the movie as these numbers have landed soorma in the ranks of lowest openers of the year. Films like Hate Story 4 and Aiyaary were also able to mice Rs 3.76 and Rs 3.36 crore respectively. The only movies falling behind are Hichki with Rs 3.30 crore and Blackmail with Rs 2.81 crore on their opening day.
Helmed by Shaad Ali, Soorma marks the debut of Chitrangada Singh as a producer. It features singer-actor Diljit Dosanjh as Sandeep aka Flicker Singh, Tapsee Pannu as his love interest Harpreet Kaur, Angad Bedi as Sandeep’s elder brother Bikramjeet.
