Tadap, Ahan Shetty’s debut film, is off to a strong start at the box office. While this column projected that the Sajid Nadiadwala production would debut in the range of 3-4 crores, the picture has performed even better, grossing 4.25 crores* on its opening day.
This would have been a good start even before the pandemic, but it’s much better now since things aren’t back to normal, and viewers are still getting acclimated to seeing movies in theatres rather than at home.
After Tiger Shroff, Ahan Shetty’s Tadap is the second such example of a successful debut for a star youngster, and both films were funded by Nadiadwala Grandson. In the case of Heropanti, Sabbir Khan was in charge, and now Milan Luthria, a seasoned director, has assured that the dramatic affair gets at least a start. The advertising and marketing had done their job, and Pritam’s music had also helped Tadap get off to a solid start.
The film’s reviews range from good to excellent, implying that it will see at least moderate growth throughout the weekend. It would be a fair enough platform to build if the film achieved the 15 crore level before the weekdays began. From then, it would be the material that spoke for itself.
