The much talked about and keenly anticipated Siddharth Anand directorial Fighter starring Hrithik Roshan and Deepika Padukone hit screens last week. After a modest opening the business of the film witnessed immense growth over its opening weekend. In fact, with positive reviews and good word of mouth the business of Fighter has been steadily growing. However, now on its fifth day running, or rather its first Monday, the business of Fighter has failed to maintain its momentum at the box office.

Rightly dubbed as ‘Khooni Monday’, the actual litmus test for any film, in this case, Fighter has resulted in a staggering 70% drop in business from its opening day. When compared to its first-day collections of Rs. 24 cr, Fighter has registered approximately just Rs. 7 cr. in collections on Day 5. If that was not enough when compared to its collections on its first Friday, which incidentally was Republic Day, the business of Fighter has dropped from Rs. 41.20 cr. to Rs. 7 cr, registering a massive 82% drop. This staggering drop highlights the fact that despite the buzz around the film and the promotions, the collections of Fighter have not really taken off on Monday.

If one were to analyse the opening weekend collections of Fighter, 33% of the film’s overall business came in on Republic Day, while on other days the collections remained plateaued with hardly any steep growth. All in all, on Monday, the mass circuits viz. Rajasthan & Gujarat failed to fire failing to take off. Thanks to this staggering drop the prospects of Fighter which has collected Rs. 123.60 cr. till date is unlikely to enter the highly coveted Rs. 200 cr club. However, despite writing on the wall, certain predictions state that Fighter could crawl its way past the Rs. 200 cr. mark.

Some of the recent movies with more than 70% drop on Monday when compared to its first Friday include Adipurush (78.61%), Tejas (74.17%), Kuttey (70%), Bachchhan Paandey (74.57%) and Shamshera (72.68%).
