Soorma, a biopic on hockey player Sandeep Singh, has been able to mint good money in the first three days of its release. However, the Diljit starrer showed a dip in its performance on its first weekday. The film earned Rs 2 crore on Monday. On Tuesday, the movie earned Rs 1.94 crore taking the total earnings of the movie to Rs 17.79 crore.
Trade analyst Taran Adarsh shared on Twitter, “#Soorma is ROCK-STEADY… Fri 3.20 cr, Sat 5.05 cr, Sun 5.60 cr, Mon 2 cr, Tue 1.94 cr. Total: ₹ 17.79 cr. India biz.”
While the film has performed well so far, it would be interesting to see if the film’s performance slows down at the box office, especially after the release of Janhvi Kapoor-Ishaan Khatter starrer Dhadak this weekend.
The Indian Express critic Shubhra Gupta in her review was all praise for Diljit Dosanjh and the impressive story line.
In the review, she mentioned, “It’s just the kind of real-life story which can lend itself to a goose-bump inducing film, because that’s what great sportspersons are trained to do: straining every sinew, ignoring pain and exhaustion, in order to get past the goal-post. Or, in the instance of Sandeep Singh aka Flicker Singh, who gained fame as the fastest ‘drag flick’ player ever, to score the goals. Diljit Dosanjh as Sandeep Singh is spot on. And that is the film’s biggest triumph.”
In an interview, Diljit mentioned, “Sandeep paaji is a Soorma in the true sense. The story of his life and his comeback is the one which I haven’t ever heard or read anywhere. He is a living legend.”
