Sujoy Ghosh's latest offering Badla has turned out to be a crowd puller and we aren't surprised. After all, he is one of the finest filmmakers when it comes to the suspense/thriller genre. And the fact that his film stars Amitabh Bachchan and Taapsee Pannu in the lead further assured that Balda would be high on performances too. After impressing the critics big time, Ghosh's directorial venture released on March 8 and ended wooing the audience as well. So much so that despite getting off to a slow start, Badla raked in Rs 5.04 crore on its first day and surpassed the opening day collection of Pink and 102 Not Out.

Currently, the film is enjoying a good run at the box office though there are quite a few movies running in theatres simultaneously. Just a while back, film trade analyst Taran Adarsh took to the microblogging site Twitter and revealed the updated figures. He wrote, "#Badla is very strong on Day 4... A healthy Mon is a clear indicator that the film is here to stay... Lack of major opposition [till #Kesari] will prove beneficial... Fri 5.04 cr, Sat 8.55 cr, Sun 9.61 cr, Mon 3.75 cr.

Apart from getting cash registers ringing in India, Big B and Taapsee's film is also doing good business at the overseas box office. Talking about the same, Adarsh tweeted, "#Badla fares well in international markets... Total after Weekend 1: $ 1.710 mn [₹ 11.96 cr]. Few territories yet to report... Fri: $ 625k

Going by the figures, Badla is placed well at the box office and will certainly end its theatrical run on a good note. As for other releases, well, most of them are drawing the crowd to the cinema halls and also minting good money - whether its Luka Chuppi, Total Dhamaal or Hollywood superhero flick Captain Marvel.
