Before the release of Hindi Medium, I had a feeling that this movie may emerge as one of the dark horses of 2017. Well, this is what exactly happened. Irrfan Khan and Saba Qamar starrer Hindi Medium has emerged as the first surprise hit of 2017. Released with almost zero expectations, the movie has recorded superb first week at the domestic box office.
After an average opening with the collection of 2.81 crores, the movie witnessed tremendous growth over the first weekend. It grows from strength to strength to end the first weekend on a positive note with the collection of 12.56 crores.
Despite the competition with Half Girlfriend and Bahubali 2, Hindi Medium performed exceptionally well on weekdays. On Monday, the movie earned 3.15 crore which is higher than the collection of the first day. It remained rock steady on weekdays and did a business of 3.30 crores, 3.10 crores on Tuesday and Wednesday respectively.
