Some better numbers brought relief for Tiger Shroff-starrer A Flying Jatt. Yes! The third day of its release managed to garner a better business as compared to its collections from previous days. The Remo D’Souza film earned Rs 7.35 crore on Saturday (August 27). The total collection of the film by the third day now stands at Rs 20.45 crore.
So far the film has been doing a low business. A Flying Jatt opened on the occasion of Janmashtami with a profit of Rs 7.10 crore. Trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted the latest collections of A Flying Jatt: #AFlyingJatt Thu 7.10 cr, Fri 6 cr, Sat 7.35 cr. Total: ₹ 20.45 cr. India biz.
But going by the numbers, which are pretty low, seem to make it a clear failure at the box office. The film which was expected to garner a better business, failed to do so. On Friday (August 26), the Tiger Shroff film made a collection of Rs 6 crore, which is even lower that its opening day profits.
A few days before the film’s release, Remo D’Souza, a man who wears multiple hats from acting, dancing, choreographing, directing to even producing, in an exclusive tete-a-tete with IndianExpress.com, mentioned about the film’s plot saying, “It’s the story of a simple superhero who is young and human. He derives the superpowers accidentally. There is also a strong mother-son bond that we have showcased in the film. There is also a message about global warming and protecting our environment that we have touched upon through the film.”
Indian Express critic Shubhra Gupta wrote in the review, “The first half of A Flying Jatt is not afraid to be silly and is very enjoyable.Tiger Shroff plays a martial arts teacher in a school where he strives lamely to catch his students’ eye, as well as a pretty colleague whom we know is interested in the environment because she clutches a couple of books on the subject to her bosom. No one ever goes to class: it is that kind of film.”
“The second half goes south. The film starts getting preachy and heavy. A bad guy who fattens on garbage and waste is a great stroke, but to keep belabouring the point is pointless,” she added.
Well, Tiger Shroff’s superhero powers are needed to make the film’s collections better in days to come.
