1st Day box office collections of ‘Mastizaade’ and ‘Saala Khadoos’

Milap Zaveri’s adult-comedy ‘Mastizaade’ has seen an average show on day one at the domestic box office. This Sunny Leone starrer film has collected around Rs 5.59 crore, which is a moderate start whereas the other release of the week ‘Saala Khadoos’ is on the lower side and collected only Rs 1.28 crore that is surely not expected from the makers.


Despite from poor reviews by the critics, ‘Mastizaade’ has still managed to do well. The reason for this average show at the box office is only hot and sizzling Sunny Leone who is in dual characters and the fans of Sunny are coming in good numbers to watch this controversial film. The occupancies throughout the day were hanged in between 40-45% and people still prefer ‘Airlift’ which is steady on its second week. Although ‘Mastizaade’ has full week to get on but Saturday and Sunday is very crucial for the film and might be the decider for the fate of the film.

On other side, Sports-drama ‘Saala Khadoos’ has failed to perform even better and the first day collections of the film is just only 1.28 crore which is certainly not expected from this Raju Hirani’s productions. R. Madhavan is playing the role of a boxing coach and his good performance hasn’t enough to get in more people. Lesser numbers of screens (575 in India for the Hindi version) is also a very big factor for this below par figures. Now, all depends on word of mouth.

In recent few years, sports is the current hot favourite plot for a film among the makers. Many sports based film have been made till date on Hockey, Football and Cricket. ‘Saala Khadoos’ is based on Boxing. Let’s see whether this film is worth to watch or not.

The story starts with a boxing coach Aadi Tomar (R. Madhavan) who is facing lots of false charges due to his chief Dev Khatri (Zakhir Hussain). Now, Aadi is searching for a boxing player who, with the help of his/her boxing heroics in the ring proved that all the allegations against him are wrong. In between all this, Aadi has been transferred to Chennai where he meets with a fish seller Madhi (Ritika Singh) who is a big fan of Boxing legend Mohammad Ali. Her sister Laks (Mumtaz Sorcar) is also a good boxer. Aadi finds his boxer in Madhi and trained her for the competition. Will Madhi fulfill the expectations of Aadi? Will she win the contest? To know, you have to watch the film.

Like the other sports based film, here also the coach and the player is the important characters of the film which means there is nothing new the makers are offering you but the enthusiasm and passion about the sports is really commendable. There is also a romantic angle in the film which will test your patience but the most important thing is the fantastic climax filled with thrill that will induce you to give round of applause.

Madhavan is in his best and his mind blowing performance will surly win your hearts. With this character of a tough boxing coach, Madhavan has shown his versatility after playing a simple guy in ‘Tanu Weds Manu Returns’ (2015). Ritika Singh has also done a fantastic job in her debut film. She is a real boxer in her life and you will enjoy her performance. The other characters of Zakhir Hussain and Mumtaz Sorcar have too done their part honestly.

At the end, as I said earlier that if you are finding a fresh story in ‘Saala Khadoos’, you might get disappoint because the story is easily predictable but if you love these kinds of motivational films, you have to watch ‘Saala Khadoos’.

I will go with 2.5 out of 5 stars.
