2018 has been a very profitable year for Bollywood when it comes to box office, along with some surprises. Smaller films are doing good business, and they have been bringing in the crowds despite not starring A-listers. Last week, acclaimed director Sriram Raghavan came out with his darkly humorous thriller, AndhaDhun, that has won over both the critics as well as the audiences. The movie stars Ayushmann Khurrana, Tabu and Radhika Apte in the lead, with Manav Vij, Ashwini Kalsekar, Zakir Hussain and Anil Dhawan in the supporting cast. AndhaDhun: 7 Surprising Twists in Ayushmann Khurrana, Radhika Apte and Tabu's Thriller That Will Blow Your Mind Away! (HUGE SPOILER ALERT).

After taking a slow start on its opening Friday, the collections of AndhaDhun has been seeing an upward trend over the weekend more so with the word-of-mouth publicity. Over its three-day run, the movie has collected Rs 15 crore, edging out its other Bollywood competitor, LoveYatri (starring Aayush Sharma and Warina Hussain) which, as per Box Office India, collected Rs 6.75 crore over the weekend. Here's what trade analyst Taran Adarsh has to say about the BO collections of AndhaDhunSaif Ali Khan's Ek Hasina Thi, Varun Dhawan's Badlapur, Ayushmann Khurrana's AndhaDhun - Ranking All Sriram Raghavan Films From Worst to Best!

#AndhaDhun - like several content-based films released earlier this year - gathered momentum over the weekend... Sat was better than Fri, while Sun was better than Sat... Strong word of mouth has helped build up a healthy total... Will have to maintain the pace on weekdays...

However, the winner of the weekend happened to be the Hollywood film, Venom, that managed to collect Rs 15.5 crore as per Box Office India. Yet, another example of how Bollywood should be very, very wary of Hollywood films, especially those big-budget visual spectacles and superhero films that can draw in the masses.
