Tu Jhoothi Main Makkaar has exhausted its extended first week run at the box office. Precisely speaking, it has performed decently until now as it has missed the attention of mass circuits largely. Now, the vital part in its theatrical run is the drop it would see on the 2nd Friday.

Tu Jhoothi Main Makkaar’s 2nd Friday collection will determine its future on the big screen. If it fails to hold steady, it will become very challenging for it to sustain in the next couple of weeks.

Let’s briefly discuss the film’s box office journey until now. Also, I will give an estimate of the film’s collection on its 10th day. So, let’s begin!

2nd Friday Crucial for TJMM

TJMM has been enjoying its solo run at the box office as there is no new release as of now. And the holdover release Pathaan isn’t presenting any competition due to a low screen count.

Still, Tu Jhoothi Main Makkaar hasn’t managed to rock in the way it was expected to do so. Had it earned more numbers during its extended first weekend, it would have already crossed the mark of ₹100 crores as of now.

Now, that time has passed and the only thing that matters now is TJMM’s 2nd Friday collection. Why? Because if it sees a decline of more than 15-20% then it will become extremely difficult for it to end its box office journey on a positive note.

Keeping in mind the way it sails in theaters, the romantic comedy film is likely to remain steady. Reason? Because it has maintained itself really well since Monday. The minimal drops on the weekdays are a big win for the movie.

So, it is fair to expect a drop of 10-15% on Friday. The film is most likely to earn around ₹4.50 crores on the 10th day. This will take the total near ₹95 crores.

And the rest of the story will depend on its growth on Saturday and Sunday. Since there is no competition for Tu Jhoothi Main Makkaar, it is likely to end its box office run as a successful film.

The Film’s Performance Could have been Better

One thing that would haunt TJMM is its inability to fetch the desired numbers over the extended first weekend. Had it performed better during this period, it would have taken its collection to a new level.

The decent response from the mass circuits affected its earnings. But the way it showed stability is really impressive. Now, it is the need of the hour for Tu Jhoothi Main Makkaar to hold strongly in the next couple of weeks.

Until now, the total of the film stands above ₹90 crores which makes it a moderate success. Given the kind of response most films have received in theatres, TJMM has still done a great job.

At least, it hasn’t left just after its first week and it is likely to remain present for the next two weeks. So, this was all about its box office performance until now. I have shared the estimated earning value for the film on its 2nd Friday. As the exact collection comes out, I will update it on BOTY.
