Tumbbad, has started its box office journey with a weal note as it has collected Rs 65 lakhs but the word of mouth has worked very well for the film. Tumbbad has shown growth on its second day with Rs 1.15 crore and here the film rose to conquer the Box Office. The critics have appreciated the film in terms of filmmaking and story while the total collection stands at Rs 3.25 crores.
Trade analyst Taran Adarsh wrote, “#Tumbbad witnesses an upward trend on Day 2… Growth on Day 2 [vis-à-vis Day 1]: 76.92%… Day 3 should be better… Fri 65 lakhs, Sat 1.15 cr. Total: ₹ 1.80 cr. India biz.”
