Rajinikanth’s Darbar crosses Rs 150 crore mark from opening weekend collections!
Superstar Rajinikanth’s ‘Darbar’ had hit screens worldwide on January 9. The film got released amidst high expectations, particularly among the fans. Though the critic reviews were mixed, box office figures have been on the rise. After the opening weekend run, the makers have officially announced that the film has crossed the Rs 150 crore mark. The collections were released by producers Lyca Productions through their social media handle. The fact that the film got a solo release and the good pre-release buzz has helped it a great deal.
‘Darbar’, written and directed by AR Murugadoss, is a mass action-thriller that has Rajinikanth in a police officer’s role. It is the superstar’s highly energetic performance that holds the film together. Though Nayanthara plays the female lead technically, it is Nivetha Thomas, who plays Rajinikanth’s daughter, who gets the meatier role. Bollywood actor Suniel Shetty essays the villain part.
After the release of the two Telugu biggies – Mahesh Babu starrer ‘Sarileru Neekevvaru’ and Allu Arjun’s ‘Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo’, ‘Darbar’ is now facing stiff competition at the box office. It remains to be seen if the Rajinikanth film manages to hold steady for a long run.
