Although Total Dhamaal opened to mostly negative reviews, its box office numbers tell a different story.

The Indra Kumar directorial, which has an ensemble cast comprising Anil Kapoor, Madhuri Dixit, Riteish Deshmukh, Arshad Warsi, Javed Jaffrey, Pitobash, Sanjay Mishra and Boman Irani, earned Rs 9.85 crore on 25 February, a Monday.

Although Total Dhamaal opened to mostly negative reviews, its box office numbers tell a different story. The film has found its audience in families as well as kids. Single screens and multiplexes, especially across the tier-2 cities have been responsible for revenue generation. No hike in the ticket price is also an additional factor, according to trade analysts.
#TotalDhamaal has an edge over other mass entertainers... Families/kids are patronising it big time... No wonder, mass circuits/single screens + metros + plexes in Tier-2 cities are *collectively* putting up a strong total... Normal ticket rates [not hiked] are a plus. — taran adarsh (@taran_adarsh) February 26, 2019
Total Dhamaal is the second film in the Dhamaal franchise, and brings together Dixit and Kapoor after over a decade.
Interestingly, two South Indian superstars Dulquer Salmaan in Chup and R Madhavan in Dhokha Round D Corner vie for attention in the Hindi belt in two suspense thrillers.
Gadar- Ek Prem Katha was a mammoth post-Partition melodrama, where Sunny Deol sets off across the border to bring his wife Ameesha Patel back from Pakistan. The actor spoke about how the film should re-release while promoting his next, Chup: Revenge of The Artist.
Having seen its run at the box office so far it can be said that Brahmastra will not cross the half of KGF 2. And a look at why Brahmastra would face a hard time recovering its budget
