Tubelight Box Office Collections
While his previous Eid release, Sultan, crossed the Rs 100-crore mark in its opening weekend itself, Salman Khan’s Tubelight has managed to enter the club in six days. According to early estimates, the film earned around Rs 10 crore on Wednesday, taking its total collection so far to more than Rs 100 crore.
Tubelight has been panned by critics, but that doesn’t matter for a Salman Khan movie. Fans are not at all worried by bad reviews, and even burst crackers inside a Malegaon theatre during Salman’s entry scene.
Salman’s Performance In “Tubelight”
So much will be talked about how good Salman is in playing the role of Laxman who’s a cross between Tom Hanks in Forrest Gump and Hrithik Roshan in Koi Mil Gaya. One thing that comes to my mind is the fact that Tubelight is Salman’s biggest risk, irrespective of the outcome of the film, the actor deserves an applause just for picking up this subject and a role that is an antithesis of his image (Salman being a buffoon, slapped multiple times and humiliated). His performance in Tubelight is extremely personal, he has totally let go of the larger than life image and got under the skin of this vulnerable man-child who wants to believe in the good. His scenes with Sohail are extremely heart warming and Kabir has gone all out to milk their natural camaraderie to the maximum.
Tubelight has a message that resonates with current times – keep the faith and believe in the good. Salman’s sincere and heartfelt performance in the film will definitely move you. Keep that box of tissues handy!
