Sridevi starrer ‘Mom’ that released at the box office this Friday (7 July) is a story of a mother who sets out to avenge the rape of her daughter. Made on an all-inclusive budget of Rs 40 crore, with a production cost of Rs 32 crore and advertising budget of Rs 8 crore, ‘Mom’ has taken an opening that is higher than Sridevi’s previous movie, ‘English Vinglish’ that released at the box office in 2012.
‘Mom’ managed to rake in Rs 2.90 crore on its opening day (Friday) at the domestic box office and an overseas business of Rs 2.20 crore. The movie’s collection figures witnessed a 75.17 per cent growth on Saturday (8 July) and recorded a business of Rs 5.08 crore.
The film managed to rake in slightly better collection figures on Sunday (9 July) with a business of Rs 6.42 crore. ‘Mom’ experienced a footfall on Monday (10 July) and recorded a collection of only Rs 2.52 crore, bringing the total collection figures at the Indian box office to Rs 16.92 crore.
Released across 1350 screens in India and a total screen count of 456 at the overseas market, ‘Mom’ has captured about 1806 screens worldwide.
While ‘Mom’ and ‘Guest Iin London’ only managed to record a combined business of Rs 3.75 crore on Friday (7 July), the other big release this week ‘Spiderman Homecoming’ managed to rake in about Rs 6.5 crore on the same day.
Positive word of mouth has worked in the favour of Ravi Udaywar’s directorial venture that stars Sridevi, Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Akshaye Khanna, Sajal Ali and Adnan Siddiqui and produced by Boney Kapoor.
Even though the movie opened to a slow start but it did witness a subsequent momentum over the weekend with a serious footfall on first Monday (10 July). Now what remains to be seen is whether the movie will manage to do a significant business over the week or the collection figures will continue to drop.
