Box Office Showdown: Laughter Takes the Lead!

Two movies hit the theaters on March 22nd, but it seems audiences are in the mood for laughs!

  • Swatantrya Veer Savarkar, a biopic about the controversial Indian freedom fighter Veer Savarkar, is a serious historical drama.
  • Madgaon Express, on the other hand, is a lighthearted comedy-drama directed by Kunal Kemmu.

Early signs show that Madgaon Express is winning the box office battle. Here's why:

People Prefer Comedy!

  • It seems moviegoers are currently leaning towards light-hearted entertainment. Madgaon Express offers a fun escape, while Swatantrya Veer Savarkar tackles a more intense subject.

Madgaon Express Earns More

  • As of Wednesday, Madgaon Express has made a total of ₹12.24 crore (approximately $1.47 million).
  • Swatantrya Veer Savarkar, on the other hand, has earned ₹10.06 crore (approximately $1.21 million) so far.

Madgaon Express Had a Strong Start

  • Madgaon Express opened with a decent ₹1.5 crore ($180,000) on its first day.
  • The weekend brought even better numbers, with Saturday and Sunday seeing collections of ₹2.75 crore ($330,000) and ₹2.8 crore ($336,000) respectively.
  • However, Wednesday saw a drop, with the film earning only ₹1.14 crore ($137,000).

Swatantrya Veer Savarkar Struggles

  • In an attempt to attract more viewers, the makers of Swatantrya Veer Savarkar offered a "Buy 1 Get 1 Free" ticket deal.
  • Unfortunately, this hasn't significantly boosted sales.
  • Experts predict the film will make around ₹0.86 crore ($103,000) on its sixth day.

A Look at the Casts

  • Swatantrya Veer Savarkar stars Randeep Hooda as Veer Savarkar, with Ankita Lokhande playing a prominent role.
  • The film also features actors portraying other historical figures like Mahatma Gandhi, B. R. Ambedkar, and Subhash Chandra Bose.


While both movies released on the same day, Madgaon Express seems to be the current favorite. Its lighthearted story is resonating more with audiences right now. Swatantrya Veer Savarkar, despite its historical significance, is facing challenges in attracting viewers.
