Article 370 Box Office Day 2: Yami Gautam-starrer earns Rs 13.4 cr


A cinematic triumph unfurls as Yami Gautam’s latest film “Article 370” surges ahead at the box office, amassing an impressive Rs 13.4 crore by the conclusion of its second day. The feature, sharing screen space with Vidyut Jammwal’s “Crakk,” emerged amid the festivities of Cinema Lovers Day. The celebration, marked by a nationwide offer providing movie tickets at a mere Rs 99, drew considerable crowds to theatre halls.

Despite the apparent success, the lower ticket prices reflected a modest dip in the total collections for the political drama, which still managed to garner over Rs 6 crore. Meanwhile, the action-centric narrative “Crakk” also made its mark, partaking in the cinematic fervor.

Day two witnessed a surge in audience interest for “Article 370,” starring Yami Gautam alongside Priyamani. The motion picture, tackling a contentious political theme, reported earnings of Rs 7.5 crore on the Saturday run. The film’s domestic tally thereby escalated to a notable Rs 13.4 crore. Industry analysis by Sacnilk noted the film’s Hindi occupancy at 26.58 percent on the day, soaring to 44.39 percent during peak evening times.

The opening day set a robust foundation with a Rs 6 crore take, positioning “Article 370” for a more prosperous start than last year’s hit “The Kashmir Files,” which collected Rs 12.05 crore in the same initial two-day period.

Trade expert Taran Adarsh provided the box office figures for the film’s debut, citing a promising Rs 6.12 crore in Indian markets. “Crakk,” orchestrated by director Aditya Datt, trailed somewhat with an estimated Rs 4.11 crore.

Diving into the details of “Article 370,” the film is a political thriller penned by Aditya Suhas Jambhale. It delves into the historical moment of the 2019 revocation of Article 370, which had formerly assigned special autonomy status to the region of Jammu & Kashmir. The narrative casts Gautam in the pivotal role of a National Investigation Agency intelligence officer, pivotal to peace-keeping efforts in the tumultuous Valley.

Gautam, recognizing the gravity of portraying such an influential real-life event through the cinematic lens, embraced her role with considerable preparation, a testament to the diligent production standards of Jio Studios and B62 Studios.

The actress, reflecting on the movie, asserted, “Article 370 is a bold chapter of India’s history. This political-action-drama, rooted in true occurrences, aims to present a layered depiction of the interplay between intelligence and political stratagem, pivotal in enacting decisions of monumental national consequence.”

As this gripping cinematic portrayal forges ahead, its second-day earnings signify an enduring audience engagement, suggestive of a steadfast box office journey. “Article 370” not only recaps a significant political episode but also stands as a beacon of storytelling prowess—a feat that certainly seems to be resonating with the viewing public.

The film’s compelling narrative, combined with powerful performances, continues to captivate audiences, solidifying its market presence and lending credence to the Indian film industry’s ability to tackle complex historical subjects with both tact and artistry. As the box office numbers suggest, the movie’s trajectory is on an ascending path, potentially heralding a successful run reminiscent of its thematic predecessor. Eager cinephiles and industry onlookers alike await to see how the film will fare in the coming days, as it continues to make its mark both within India and potentially on an international scale.
